"Where the poplars grow" by Irina Unruh

In ihrer Publikation »Where The Poplars Grow« geht Irina Unruh nicht nur ihrer eigenen Familiengeschichte auf den Grund, sondern setzt ihre Vergangenheit auch einfühlsam in einen historischen Kontext.

Ihre dokumentarischen Fotografien erzählen von Verlust, Herkunft und der Suche nach Identität. Auf dem Pfad der Geschichte von Russlanddeutschen erzählt Unruh ihre persönliche Geschichte von Flucht, Vertreibung und Heimat.

Solomiya No.3

Between Kyiv and Berlin, we set out in search of artistic reflections that address the growing fatigue and open up new perspectives on Ukraine and beyond. Our exploration delves into the burgeoning Ukrainian exile community that is shaping Berlin’s cultural scene; we unravel the threads connecting war to the reinvigoration of masculinity; and we examine the prism of Western post-colonial perceptions of Ukraine.

Between Kyiv and Berlin, we embark on a search for artistic reflections that address the growing fatigue and open up new perspectives on Ukraine and beyond. We explore the burgeoning Ukrainian exile community that is shaping the Berlin cultural scene today; we unravel the threads that connect the war with the revitalisation of masculinity, and we examine the prism of Western post-colonial perceptions of Ukraine.

The book focuses on visual artist Julie Legouez’s personal experience of domestic violence in 2019. Over a period of two years, she worked through this trauma in an artistic way.

IN LIEBE VON

Lost & Found presents the extraordinary edition IN LOVE OF. 21 authors respond to old photographs with contemporary love letters. The book object is a captivating fusion of photography and literary creation that brings together the past, present and future.

Since 2019 we published books about contemporary art, photography and social interest. In addition to the aesthetic demand for individual book design, feel and material, we focus on sustainable and, where possible, vegan production.

Protestbereitschaft

Contemporary activism between attitude and style

The political culture of the 21st century is characterized by protests. Their history has only recently become the focus of historians, while a comprehensive cultural studies and artistic examination of the manifestations and aesthetics of protest movements has yet to take place.
Protestbereitschaft starts right here and examines the iconography and aesthetic codes of the milieus and movements involved from an interdisciplinary and multi-perspective perspective.
