Photographs, books, and knickknacks: artists collect a variety of objects. While artists generate personal collections, which often address different formal, aesthetic, or conceptual concerns, it is difficult to separate this activity from their artistic practices. Over time, whether intended or not, such accumulations of items may become works of art.
Individual Stories considers the collection as a portrait of its collector and also as an artistic method—as a process rather than an end result. The act of collecting is multifarious—it can be an expression of curiosity, a desire to transform things that have been discovered, or a systematic approach to certain objects in the world. This catalogue is a compilation of individual collections that could not be more different.

Cinematographic Objects : Things and Operations
Volker Pantenburg (Ed.)
Things and objects have been at the center of theoretical debate for some years. However, the question what Film and Media Studies can contribute to questions of human and non-human agency has been largely absent from these discussions.
The essays in this book address this lack and scrutinize cinema’s specific way of dealing with objects. If we consider cinema not as a mere mode of representation but as an epistemological machine: What does it know about things and objects?
How does it process the relations between humans and non-humans? Alternating theoretical approaches with individual case studies, this book provides answers from different perspectives and sheds light on the peculiar ontology of the ‘Cinematographic Object’.
Artists/filmmakers featured in this book include: Fritz Lang, Max Ophüls, John Baldessari, John Stezaker, and Michael Snow, among others.
Texts by Marcus Becker, Francesco Casetti, Thomas Elsaesser, Lorenz Engell, Ulrike Hanstein, R. John, Esther Leslie, Volker Pantenburg, Lesley Stern, Annette Urban, Kenneth White.
