OBJEKTIV at TEMPLE ARLES BOOKS JULY 2019
Objektiv is celebrating its tenth year in 2019, and this year's issues will look both backwards and forwards. For Objektiv #19, which will be presented in Arles, we’ve asked artists who have featured in our first eighteen issues to ‘pay it forward’, so to speak, and identify a younger artist working with photography or film whom they feel deserves a larger platform. Camille Henrot, Mårten Lange, Jumana Manna, Torbjørn Rødland and Stanley Wolukau-Wanambwa have all chosen an artist in whom they believe: Marianna Simnett, Luo Yang, Mónica Martin Nunes, Diane Severin Nguyen and Federico Clavarino. We’ve also included another artist, Frida Orupabo, chosen by one of our editors, Lisa A. Bernhoft-Sjødin. Delphine Bedel will also present several important female photo book inventors whom we all should know more about in her essay. In our very first issues, we invited different people to write about an image they found memorable, under the headline On my Mind (Sinnbilde) a column inspired by FOAM Magazine. Now, in Objektiv’s 10th year, as the ocean of images continues to swell, we’ve reignited this column online, and we open this issue with some of the work that different artists, curators, thinkers can’t get out of their minds. We’ll present several more in our upcoming Objektiv #20, where we also give different artists carte blanche to create unique portfolios for our pages. The work on #20 has already begun, join us this summer and make ‘mind maps’ with us!
