JONAS ZILIUS: OLYMPIA. Spector Books, Leipzig, 2017. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Ram Publications, Santa Monica. 160 pp. 27 x 17 cm. ISBN 9783959050784 Bilingual in English and German.
Due date: January 2017. Publisher's description: Spector Books' richly illustrated softcover catalog of Jonas Zilius's Olympia series manages to reveal the multidimensionality of a tiny snapshot of the present. With his eye trained in the school of Bruno Latour -- the French sociologist and scientific researcher who presented the concept of "science in action" from a social constructivist perspective -- Zilius observes and documents in 100 color plates archaeologists remapping the southern hall of the ancient site of Olympia. Applying a stylistically nuanced visual language, he shows the scientists and their technical equipment, the Mediterranean landscape with its touristic spectacle, and the ancient artifacts and digital modes of visualization that are now being used for archaeological work. The montage of different levels of reality produces new forms of photographic chronicling -- a photography that seems equal to the complexity of the present. The Olympia series previewed at the Staatliche Kunsthalle Baden-Baden (2015) and f-stop Festival, Leipzig (2016).
