Klaus Baumgartner - Sequence
|Publisher||Lecturis / Saiid/smale|
Born in Germany in 1948, Klaus Baumgärtner applied his varied talents as a teacher, sculptor, collage-maker, graphic designer, and photographer, until his death in 2013. Photographs comprise a perhaps lesser-known but equally significant part of his oeuvre. In this book, art historian Hans Locher focuses exclusively on the artist’s capacity for image-making. Baumgärtner’s photographic eye is akin to that of Moholy-Nagy, Kertesz, and Wols from the 1930s. He had distinct way of looking, and darkness features in many of his pictures – in weather or shadows, but also in emotions. Moreover, we encounter things in these images that recall his idiosyncratic plastic objects.
