Editorial

“Gently roasted young chicken can be heartily recommended,” according to Wilhelm Busch. Not a bad idea, unless vegetarian food is preferred—or it’s the poultry served up by KLAUS PICHLER. For his most recent project One Third, Pichler documents rotting food in slick still-lifes to criticize the waste of food around the world, presenting it like advertising to our consumer oriented society.
A very different tension between documentation and staging can be found in ARNO GISINGER’s work complex Topoï, demonstrating—once again—the ambivalence of the photographic medium as a “great image of post-industrial culture” and “the very memory of our history.”
YAEL BARTANA
deals with the historical event of the Shoah in Poland. In the framework of her last solo show, Wenn Ihr wollt, ist es kein Traum (If You Will It, It Is Not a Dream) she consciously blurs the lines separating reality and utopia of a new society to open a discourse about Israeli identity.
The series Gestern (Eine Begegnung mit Familie D). (Yesterday [A Meeting with Family D.]) by ANASTASIA KHOROSHILOVA is also not an objective documentation. When the artist shows migrants living illegally in Russia in their everyday surroundings, she presents them in the form of classical portrait photography, subverting traditional family hierarchies in her arrangement of the figures.  
The publication Art for Peace presents the 600 items included in the comprehensive art collection of UNESCO in Paris, including works by artists such as Picasso or Giacometti. With the aim of documenting the collection, Lois Lammerhuber, a photographer commissioned by the Republic of Austria, creates far more than a mere inventory: the compositions in which the artworks are embedded enable a fully new perspective on these artistic delicacies.

In this spirit: bon appétit!

For all of us here at EIKON,
