CINDY SHERMAN: 2016. Betsy Berne. Hartmann Books, Stuttgart, 2016. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Artbook|D.A.P., New York. 64 pp. with 40 col. ills. 20 x 17 cm. ISBN 9783960700012 In English.
Publisher's description: This small, gorgeously designed and carefully edited book -- available in grey and beige cloth -- presents all 20 photographs of a new body of work that Cindy Sherman completed in 2016. In these photographs, reminiscent (conceptually but not formally) of her earlier Film Stills, Sherman enacts variations on the theme of aging Hollywood actresses of the 1920s. The series was inspired by her interest in early German Expressionist silent movies, which led her to further studies of the first wave of the Hollywood star system in the 1920s. Here, Sherman's "actresses" are presented in the style of studio publicity shoots, against backgrounds that were carefully composed for each of the characters. With heavy make-up, elaborate hairdos, precisely chosen and arranged wardrobe and dresses, Sherman creates female characters that provoke a rich array of cultural associations.
