Steidl at the Monnaie de Paris
This well-put-together exhibition devoted to the German art, photography, and now literature, publisher Steidl illustrates the different elements involved in a range of publishing projects: the artist’s work, of course, but also friendships, technical challenges, the dialogue with the editor, the printing… Via presentations dedicated to some of the publisher’s emblematic photographers, from Robert Frank to Karl Lagerfeld, Massimo Vitali or the artist Ed Ruscha, we witness the genesis of each publication, and the passage from the work to the book format. Set up by Gerhard Steidl in Göttingen in 1972, Steidl is both a publisher and printer, boasting a unique quality of book production.
Until 19 Dec.
