For four years, the young art historian Chiara Manon Bohn has been assisting the Siegen-based photo artist Thomas Kellner in his work. She supports him in his daily studio routine, in the conception of projects and exhibitions, and accompanies them with essays and speeches at openings.
In this volume, five essays present her view of Thomas Kellner's work. She writes both about the artist's latest project, the Siegen half-timbered houses previously photographed by Bernd and Hilla Becher, and about Kellner's well-known work with contact sheets. In addition to texts on Genius Loci, Tango Metropolis, and Brasília, there is also a readable essay on the underlying methodology and as yet little shown exhibition Visual Analytical Synthesis, defined and named by Irina Chmyreva and revisited by Chiara Manon Bohn.
This is the fifth text volume on the work of Thomas Kellner, which for the first time provides a comprehensive insight into the œuvre, the individual series of works, of the artist. Previously published: Idealbilder, Kontakt, All shook up and Visuell Analytische Synthese.
