Darja Bajagić
Unlimited Hate

Edited by Sandro Droschl, Künstlerhaus, Halle für Kunst & Medien
Texts by Alissa Bennett, Franklin Melendez, Natalia Sielewicz

For her first institutional solo Darja Bajagić turns to the murky terrain where real and staged violence bleed into each other with an ease both unsettling and alluring. This has been a key undercurrent to a practice that spans painting, sculpture, video, and installation. Following the lure of the fringes, the artist culls her imagery from fan-gore magazines, true-crime TV shows, fetish websites, obscure online forums, and hidden chat rooms tucked away in the darker reaches of the Web. She handles these disparate source materials with a dose of humor, working them into densely layered compositions that are at once confrontational and poetically fragile. Bajagić explores loaded questions of embodiment, viewership, and power relations, all the while interrogating our need to hold images accountable.

The catalogue is published on the occasion of the artist’s first institutional exhibition, “Unlimited Hate,” which was shown at Künstlerhaus, Halle für Kunst & Medien in the summer of 2016.

Design by Nik Thoenen and Maia Gusberti

Nobuyoshi Araki
Junenme no Senchimentaru na Tabi / Sentimental Journey: the 10th Anniversary

Very rare, 1982 first printing of Nobuyoshi Araki’s “Sentimental Journey 10th Anniversary” photobook. One of Araki’s beautiful, scarce 1980’s diary books, this volume “Records Araki and Yoko’s month-long journey in June 1981 to France, Spain and Argentina to commemorate their tenth wedding anniversary, combining Yoko’s writing and Araki’s snapshots”–Kotaro Iizawa, Araki: Self, Life, Death. Texts in Japanese. Hardcover edition with original publisher’s obi-strip.

Nobuyoshi Araki is a prolific Japanese photographer who has produced thousands of photographs over the course of his career. He became famous for “Un Voyage Sentimental” (1971), a series of photos depicting both banal and deeply intimate scenes of his wife and lifelong muse, essayist Aoki Yoko (whom the artist credits for making him a photographer), during their honeymoon. To date the 75 year old has produced 450 photo books and counting. With a repertoire that knows no boundaries, Araki’s diaristic style of photography has captured the world around him (his cat Chiro, the people and landscapes of Japan and his travels, flowers, family), though it is Araki’s intensely sexual imagery that has elicited particular controversy and fascination throughout his career. Similarly to Helmut Newton, Araki has often addressed subversive themes — such as bondage in the Japanese style Kinbaku — in his provocative depictions of female nudes. He typically works in black-and-white photography, and his hallmark style is deliberately casual. “Rather than shooting something that looks like a professional photograph, I want my work to feel intimate, like someone in the subject’s inner circle shot them,” he says. Pushing against the world of commercialised photography, he is celebrated for his history of self-publishing and distributing his work, beginning with his Xerox Photo Albums of 1970. Amongst many others, Araki has collaborated with American photographer Nan Goldin and Icelandic musician Björk.
