Texte Zur Kunst #97
March 2015 “Bohemia”


Exile and marginality, network availability, mass- versus subcultural identities, privilege, opting (versus dropping) out – these are elements this issue takes on. The fading of bohemia’s appeal is no doubt linked in part to a growing preference for the web’s promise of total-connectivity. Though could another factor be at work here too: an underlying sense that perhaps the real displacement and disenfranchisement after which romantic notions of “bohemia” were later formed may again be a very real threat?

Lewis Baltz
Rule Without Exception

Rare first edition of this award-winning mid-career retrospective book published on the occasion of the 1990 exhibition “Lewis Baltz: Rule Without Exception”, organized by Julia Brown Turrell, at the Des Moines Art Center, Des Moines, Iowa – which then traveled and  spanned five institutions, from PS 1 in Long Island City (December 16, 1990 – February 10, 1991), and ending at LACMA (March 26 – May 31, 1992).
This ambitious book compiles Lewis Baltz’s bodies of work together for the very first time in one book, from “The Prototype Works” of 1967 through to “Sites of Technology” of the start of the 90’s, showing the range of his images of industrialised landscapes and technological sites. Each section of the book is accompanied by installation views as well as texts by distinguished writers
Marvin Heiferman, Paolo Costantini, Shirley Irons, Gus Blaisdell, Jane Livingston, Mowry Baden, Mark Haworth-Booth, Bernard Lamarche-Vadel, Jeff Kelley, Oliver Boissiere and Michael Schmidt.

This is the first printing of this important, comprehensive and visually provocative survey of Baltz’s major projects over the previous 20 years, and has been long out-of-print.

Lewis Baltz

A protagonist of the New Topographics movement, Lewis Baltz (born 1945) not only revived American landscape photography, but also revolutionized the photographic pictorial language of the 1970s. His black-and-white images of industrial landscapes, dreary suburban neighborhoods and wastelands introduced radically new motifs, which were debuted in the now legendary 1975 exhibition “The New Topographics” alongside the work of Robert Adams, Stephen Shore and Henry Wessel, Jr. Made in close collaboration with Lewis Baltz, this volume reproduces such series as “The Tract Houses” (1969-71), “Maryland” (1976), “Nevada” (1977), “Park City” (1978-80), “San Quentin Point” (1981-83), “The Canadian Series” (1985), “Candlestick Point” (1987-89), “Sites of Technology” (1989-91) and several others. Essays contextualize Baltz’s work in the larger art and photography climate of the 1970s, and discuss his application of cinematic strategies to photography.  This catalogue was made in close collaboration with Lewis Baltz and approaches his work through various angles. The texts highlight how Baltz’s photographies relate to the art of the 1970s, how he applies filmic strategies and why he does not call himself a photographer. In doing so, relevant new and underrepresented aspects of this conceptually-driven artist are shown.

Published on the occasion of the exhibition at kestnergesellschaft, Hannover (14 September 4 November 2012), and at Albertina, Vienna (1 March 2 June 2013).
