Between times. Instants, intervals, durations is a collective work framed within the special relationship that exists between photography and time. The book gathers works together that from various perspectives and using different methods deal with the experience of time in its many meanings and visual forms.
There are 17 artists, including some of the most outstanding figures in art in recent decades, and they present works made using photography, video and film.
The first group of artists deals with the effects of interruption in photography, as in the works of Steven Pippin, Mabel Palacín and Jochen Lempert. Secondly, the "micrology of the moment", with what it implies as a unique, fixed vision, with no before or after, is considered, an essential concept in the photographs of Jeff Wall and Paul Pfeiffer.
This focus on the event through its vestiges is of decisive importance in the works of Clare Strand and Ignasi Aballí. The photo engravings that compose The Russian Endingare by Tacita Dean.
Another group of works addresses the reproduction of unique, ephemeral moments, a theme present in One Minute Sculptures,by Erwin Wurm. Furthermore, in the landscapes of Ya no, todavía no, by Iñaki Bonillas, and in the video Solar Breath, by Michael Snow, images reproduce aesthetic and emotional stagnation.
Hiroshi Sugimoto photographed several drive-in theatres in which the image is exposed during the entire time a film is projected. Michael Wesely documented the spatial and architectural transformations in Berlin´s Potsdamer Platz. In both cases, time is visually reshaped through images that compress it.
Works with moving images are included in the book, both from films and videos created by Tacita Dean, David Claerbout, Ceal Floyer and Michael Snow.
The last motivational focus highlights the relationship of the image as a privileged way of perceiving history and memory, as shown in the works of Joachim Koester, Daniel Blaufuks and Michael Wesely and in Tacita Dean´s film installations.
