Café Lehmitz_Plan

3-lehmitz-inside-a 4-lehmitz-inside-b  PhotoBookMuseum - Café Lehmitz - by Daniel Zakharov 001Can you have a beer in a photobook ? Yes you can. In the PhotoBookStudies*#18 we are reconstructing the legendary Reeperbahn pub (in german named ”STEHBIERHALLE”-)  from Anders Petersen’s landmark PhotoBook CAFE LEHMITZ published in 1978. Because of very less informations about the real Lehmitz our architecture team took the book to rebuild half of the LEHMITZ in 1:1 size for The PhotoBookMuseum. In Black & White…for sure .

PhotoBookStudies: A place of learning
PhotoBookStudies are a completely new way of approaching the photobook. They are in effect secondary literature presented visually in the form of a rhizomatic map. Large, wooden partitions serve as both bulletin boards and blackboards. Photographs, book pages and other illustrated material are arranged graphically and supplemented by written notes. PhotoBookStudies illustrate the artistic, historical and social origins of a photobook. They also show the people, events and developments that influenced the author in his or her work.
Together with students from the Kunsthochschule für Medien Köln (Academy of Media Arts in Cologne), Markus Schaden developed, for example, a PhotoBookStudy on Ed van der Elsken’s Love on the Left Bank. This photobook tells a love story in the bohe- mian scene in Paris of the 1950s and is con- sidered an incunable of this genre. As a gesture of respect to the Swedish photographer Anders Petersen, The_PBM is planning to build a replica of Café Lehmitz. Petersen’s photographs of this famous Hamburg bar were published in 1978 in a photobook of the same name. The story of this photobook will be traced in a PhotoBookStudy on the exterior walls of the replica. Other studies will focus on the work of Stephen Shore, Todd Hido, Susan Meiselas and Daido Moriyama.
