About this title:

Synopsis: These photages have nothing in common with the photomontages of the 20th century. Albrecht Ade controls the composition of his pictorial images, artfully and purposefully arranging his images among and on top of each other.

His numerous publications on art-historical and architectural themes include monographs on individual buildings and catalogues about painters, sculptors, draughtsmen and photographic artists. Knapp has won several journalism prizes in the fields of architecture and monument preservation.

Book Description Edition Axel Menges, Fellbach, Germany, 2004. Cloth. Book Condition: Like New. Dust Jacket Condition: Like New. Albrecht Ade's 'photages', created with special light techniques, have nothing in common with the 'photocollages' or 'photomontages' of the 20th century. When artists as different as El Lissitzky, John Heartfield, Laszlo Moholy-Nagy, Raoul Hausmann or Hannah Hoch constructed futuristically bold, surreal or satirical images from photographic materials as a response to quotations from reality cut out and then stuck into Cubist 'papiers colles' by Georges Braque and Pablo Picasso, they worked mainly with someone else's material, with trouvailles. In contrast, Ade uses only his own material for his combination images, and his method for mounting images, for 'editing them into each other', does not need of scissors and paste either. He cultivates the usually involuntary effect of double exposure, a hazard from the days of analogue photography. He controls the chances of pictorial superimposition and confusion, artfully and purposefully arranging his own, deliberately positioned images among and on top of each other, using a technically elaborate matching and omission process. Ade, as well as teaching at the Stuttgart Akademie der Bildenden Kunste, has intensively promoted cinematic animation techniques in his years as director of the Stuttgart Festival of Animated Film, and since 1990, as founder-director of the Filmakademie in Ludwigsburg, has allowed animated film and camera arts to develop in the greatest possible breadth, in fact has helped to win the Ludwigsburg model the highest artistic respect in the film world. This all suggests how inventively and ingeniously his creative output mingles artistically creative and elaborately technical ideas and fascinations. Photography as a creative method for fine art - something the pioneers of photography dreamed of in the 19th century - becomes reality in Albrecht Ade's 'photages'. The text is in English and German. 97pp. Size: 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall. Bookseller Inventory # 015987
