The raw and the cooked by Peter Bialobrzeski( Book )

6 editions published in 2011 in English and German and held by 111 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

His book of photos, The Raw and the Cooked, Peter Bialobrzeski sets forth the essence of his observations from his unique series of photos about the development of Asian mega-cities (Neon Tigers, Lost in Transition) and their slums (Case Study Homes). Starting with the simplest, homemade vernacular architecture, based on human proportions and made with found construction materials, his photos range as far as the exorbitant planned cities of glass, steel, and concrete. Buildings rise higher and higher into the sky, more and more resources are wasted, the new unmercifully shoves aside the old. Seductively beautiful tableaux from fourteen different countries depict the kind of "progress" that triggers a sense of anxiety and trepidation. Where is all of this leading?
Calcutta : Chitpur Road neighborhoods( Book )

5 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 108 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In nineteenth-century Calcutta, a financially strong Indian elite emerged under the rule of the British East India Company, building up eclectic Bengali equivalents of industrialists' mansions, apparent stylistic blends of traditional Mogul architecture with more classical elements. Today, the erstwhile magnificent villas and palaces retain only a trace of their former splendor, and it seems only a matter of time before the last stone remnants of a once brilliant Bengali upper middle class disappear for good. Under the guidance of Peter Bialobrzeski, twenty-one photography students from the University of the Arts Bremen captured the fading, crumbling grandeur of this culturally rich heirloom as part of the Kolkata Heritage photo Project."--Jacket

Nail houses, or, The destruction of Lower Shanghai by Peter Bialobrzeski( Book )

4 editions published in 2014 in English and German and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During his travels through China, Peter Bialobrzeski was fascinated by the so-called nail houses. Surrounded by tall, newly constructed buildings, these houses have been earmarked for demolition, but their owners resolutely refuse to vacate. In his thought-provoking series the artist photographs these isolated structures, often in the evening hours, when the brightly lit interiors convey the domestic comfort that these homes provide for their owners, despite all the cracks in the walls. Peter Bialobrzeski (* 1961 in Wolfsburg) uses his camera to offer these renitent structures moral support. Following the publication of Case Study Homes and Informal Arrangements, this striking series completing the Habitat trilogy poses uncomfortable questions to the viewer. It also emphatically underscores the fundamental right of every human being to a home and sense of security
Wolfsburg Unlimited : Eine Stadt als Weltlabor by Ralf Beil( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in German and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Was ist eine Stadt? Oder besser noch: Was kann eine Stadt sein? Diese Frage hat der neue Direktor des Kunstmuseums Wolfsburg Ralf Beil nicht nur sich, sondern auch einem Kreis ausgewählter Künstler vorgelegt, um potenzielle Entgrenzungen, Metamorphosen und Umdeutungen Wolfsburgs zu erkunden. Der Katalog versammelt die Ergebnisse dieses schöpferischen Experimentierens, das sich nicht auf den musealen Raum beschränkt, sondern die ganze Stadt als Inspirationsquelle für Interventionen nutzt. Eigens für die Ausstellung entstehen großangelegte Künstlerprojekte wie eine Totalinstallation von Julian Rosefeldt, Performances von John Bock, aber auch Fotoarbeiten von Eva Leitolf und Peter Bialobrzeski. Die weit ausgreifenden und vielgestaltigen Arbeiten spiegeln nicht nur Geschichte und Gegenwart, sondern auch die Zukunft einer Stadt zwischen Industrialisierung, Mobilisierung und Digitalisierung, zwischen Masse und Individuum, lokaler und globaler Aktion. Die beteiligten Künstler: Franz Ackermann, Nevin Aladag, Christian Andersson, Ruedi Baur / Vera Baur, Peter Bialobrzeski, John Bock, Janet Cardiff / George Bures Miller, Don Eddy, Douglas Gordon, Heinrich Heidersberger, Peter Keetman, Anselm Kiefer, Eva Leitolf, Rémy Markowitsch, Arnold Odermatt, Peter Roehr, Didier Rittener, Julian Rosefeldt, Luc Tuymans, James Welling. Ausstellung: Kunstmuseum Wolfsburg , 24.4.-11.9.2016

Jörg Gläscher - Der Tod kommt später, vielleicht by Jörg Gläscher( Book )

2 editions published in 2011 in German and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jörg Gläschers (* 1966) lakonische Fotografien von der deutschen Armee zeigen, dass nichts mehr so ist, wie es scheint. (...) Seine Fotografien dokumentieren nicht die deutsche Bundeswehr, vielmehr findet er auf seinen Reisen, die er zu und mit den Streitkräften unternommen hat, Bilder, die Denkräume öffnen. Seine Bildsprache ist undramatisch. Beinahe lakonisch reiht er Szenen aneinander, die dem Betrachter oft absurd vorkommen. Er bedient sich gängiger Genres der Fotografie, Landschaft mit Figur, Porträt, Stillleben und Szenerie. Er vermeidet jede Erklärung, setzt auf ein politisches und gesellschaftliche Vorwissen des Betrachters. Zu Recht. Die Bundeswehr war wohl noch nie in der jüngeren deutschen Geschichte in den Medien so präsent wie in der Zeit, in der die Fotografien dieses Buches entstanden. (...) So changieren die Fotografien von Jörg Gläscher zwischen trügerischem Heideidyll und suggestiver Bedrohung durch formale Reduktion. Dazwischen streut er Porträts junger Soldaten. Da ist niemand ein cooler Landser. Wir schauen in Gesichter, die Zurückhaltung, Vorsicht, Nachdenklichkeit oder auch Verunsicherung ausdrücken. Der Tod kommt später, vielleicht (Peter Bialobrzeski)

The crumbling splendor of Calcutta's architectural heritage, captured in marvelous photographs. In nineteenth-century Calcutta, a financially strong Indian elite emerged under the rule of the British East India Company, building up eclectic Bengali equivalents of industrialists' mansions, apparent stylistic blends of traditional Mughal architecture with more classical elements. Today the erstwhile magnificent villas and palaces retain only a shred of their former splendor, and it seems only a matter of time before the last stony reminders of a once brilliant Bengali upper middle class disappear for good. Under the guidance of Peter Biaolobrzeski, twenty-one photography students from the Hochschule für Künste in Bremen captured the fading, crumbling grandeur of this culturally rich heirloom as part of the Kolkata Heritage Photo Project. On April 22, 2007, the Süddeutsche Zeitung wrote, "If Calcutta had the appeal of Havana, its palaces would long ago have become the subject of various coffee-table books." At last, this anticipated, unique book is available now
