This book focuses on the extraordinary mythical traditions and ritual practices in a remote community in the Himalayan mountains, studied over a long period of field research by Michael Oppitz. It is the English version of his German original, first published in 1980 by Syndikat Verlag under the title “Schamanen im Blinden Land,” which has long since been out of print. That book came out in parallel to a film of the same name, today considered a classic. Now appearing in English as “Shamans of the Blind Country. A picture book from the Himalaya” the new version extends the old by more than a third of the original documentary photographs; it traces the historical changes that have transformed this mountainous region of Nepal over the last four decades in an extensive epilogue; and it suggests a wider context of ritual healing in the Himalaya by appending a selection of early pictures of shamanism in Siberia. This English version is published in both hardcover and softcover editions.

Moyra Davey & Peter Hujar
The Shabbiness of Beauty
2021, 128 pages, hardcover, fully illustrated in b/w and color, 17 x 24 cm
This book originated out of an exhibition that Moyra Davey organized at Galerie Buchholz in Berlin. For this, Moyra Davey delved into Peter Hujar’s archives and emerged mainly with little-known, scarcely seen images. In response to these, Davey created her own images that draw out an idiosyncratic selection of shared subjects. Side by side, the powerfully composed images admire, tease, and enhance one another in the manner of fierce friends, forming a visual exploration of physicality and sexuality that crackles with wit, tenderness, and perspicacity. Spiritually anchored in New York City - even as they range out to rural corners of Quebec and Pennsylvania - these images crystallize tensions between city and country, human and animal. Nudes pose with unruly chickens; human bodies are abstracted toward topography; seascapes and urban landscapes share the same tremulous plasticity. These continuities are punctuated by stark differences of approach: Davey’s self-aware postmodernism against Hujar’s humanism and embrace of darkroom manipulation. The rich dialogue between these photographs is personal and angular, ultimately offering an illuminating reintroduction to each artist through communion with the other’s work. The book contains a new text by Eileen Myles and is published by Mack Books, London.

“Primary Materials for Black Mirror”
2021, 104 pages, Owrps, fully illustrated in color,
26 x 17,5 cm
This artist’s book completes Monica Majoli’s Black Mirror series and acts as a pendant to the suite of paintings and works on paper produced from 2009-2012 and exhibited at L&M Arts in Los Angeles, 2012-2013. This particular series is based on the black mirror panels of Majoli’s bedroom, reflecting the half-images of five lovers from her past (over the timespan of twenty-five years). The book’s photographs are both source material and event. They depict an intimate performance between the artist and her subject as reflected in the dark mirrored surface that the camera captures.
Poet, novelist and cultural critic Wayne Koestenbaum contributed nine texts to the book. His feuilletons or soap operas act as a disorienting, poetic, and freewheeling counterpoint of conjecture to the photographs. The book also examines creating the material for the paintings in an extended interview between Majoli and independent writer and critic Sabrina Tarasoff.
The book is published in collaboration with Air de Paris.
