JAMES CASEBERE: FUGITIVE. Ed. by Okwui Enwezor. Haus der Kunst, Munich, 2016. Published in association with Prestel-Verlag, Munich. 224 pp. with 88 col. ills. 31 x 26 cm. ISBN 9783791355412 In English.
Publisher's description: Since the mid-1970s, James Casebere has produced a diverse body of work involving photography, sculpture, installation, and film. Casebere gained renown as a pioneer of a type of constructed photographic tableaux, which derive exclusively from meticulously planned architectural models that he conceives, fabricates, and photographs in his studio. He has created his own distinctive visual language through a unique cinematic and architectural approach. "I am trying to create something that embodies or dramatizes the kind of psychic space that exaggerates certain ideas and experiences," Casebere says, describing his pictorial method, a strategy in which the models exemplify what might be characterized as the architectural unconscious of a given spatial system. Featuring more than 70 works produced in a variety of formats and techniques, the book covers all periods of the artist's fourdecade long career from black-and-white silver gelatin prints to large single and multi-part color photographs. In addition it includes newly commissioned works which appear in print for the first time. Working models and sketchbooks, source materials, and numerous Polaroid studies offer valuable insight into Casebere's artistic process.
