The photographer Ursula Schulz-Dornburg (* 1938 in Berlin) unites the two apparently opposing genres of conceptual and documentary photography in her work. This is the first book to assemble several cycles and series, including some that have not been published previously. This complex artist’s book in the form of a box containing several different kinds of objects and materials is the product of a long phase of conception, during which the author and editor developed a new kind of monograph. Besides nine notebooks, each containing a cycle, a series of photographs printed on cardboard, a map, and a large individual print on tissue paper, the collection also features an essay about the photographer and three statements by Lawrence Weiner.
