Issue #3
“The White Album”

The white, the erased, the disappearing, the disintegrating, the scattered, the neboulsly shapeless, the dissolving, the outshined, the invisible, the not yet visible, the minimal, the rudimentary, the diminished, the disguised, the indepictable, the long forgotten, the lost.

Photography is the everlasting fight against disappearance. It serves as evidence, as a recourse and reminder; a trace of the past, a chemical inscription of brief moments. Through an incident of light, a juxtaposition of light and dark emerg- es on the film-stock’s coating. The very light which makes everything visible is likewise capable of annihilating it’s own traces. Where are the limits of the depictable? Where does the depicted image begin to dissolve?

The artists of issue #3 are Ben Alper, Viktoria Binschtok, Adam Broomberg und Oliver Chanarin, Ezio D’Agostino, Goekhan Erdogan, Altan Eskin, Nicolai Howalt, Daniel Müller-Jansen, Jim Reed, Simone Schulz, Eva Stenram, and Stephan Tillmans.
