This artist's book gathers the most varied iconographic documentation (cut-outs of press images, film stills, snippets of books and film scripts) randomly built around the notion of solidarity in socialists movements.
Doreen Mende carries out a curatorial research on the conditions of image production in connection with the solidarity project of socialist movements. The book features press picture material from the curator's father, as well as pages from found elements. Admittedly the material might be randomly selected, but its montage in a print connects the pieces without explaining their explicit connections—thus allowing the reader to enter a space between past and present, in a poetical way.
Doreen Mende is a curator, theorist and professor for at HEAD Geneva.
