I will survive

Hito Steyerl

Spector Books

Project description

Impressive art cooperation

Hito Steyerl’s works move at the interface between film and visual art. The positions she takes in her works and texts are of central importance when considering the contemporary role of art and museums in society. In „I will survive“, the artist shows mutations of camera images – from analogue images with multiple montages to flowing digital images – and transports this statement to wars, genocides and capital flows. The publication is a cooperation project of the Centre Pompidou, Paris and the Kunstsammlung Nordrhein-Westfalen, Düsseldorf.

Visually, the content of the brochure is underlined by its design as a trunaround book – from the middle of the magazine, the content is turned 180 degrees. The layout also reflects this transformation. Thus, a change from black to white has been made on the respective titles of U1 and U4. This harsh contrast on the recycled paper cover is reinforced by a high embossing of the author’s name and the title. The thread stitching, with its almost 500 pages, is given even more weight purely in visual terms, as lightly woody uncoated paper with 2 times the volume has been chosen for the contents.
