“In the second half of the 20th century, when photography gained substantially in importance as an art form, the artist’s book arose contemporaneously as a new medium of artistic expression. A crucial role was played in that context by interaction between the artists’ book and photography as two interrelated media. One key aspect in such interaction between the art forms was their positive relationship to the reproduction of art. An essential characteristic of both photographic images and artists’ books is that they are both inexpensive and virtually unlimited in their reproducibility. The exhibition therefore centres on photography in the form of printed RE-productions, or as copies from the negative in the artist’s book, and not on the techniques by which such works were created, or on original or vintage prints.”
