A show of books and films by Göttingen/Marfa-based artist Robert Frank. “Conceived by Robert Frank and Gerhard Steidl, this exhibition shows Frank’s work in photos, books and films in a direct accessible manner. His images are printed on sheets of newsprint and hung directly on the walls. A selection of Frank’s films and videos, which are so often overshadowed by his photographic work are shown on small portable »beamers«, projecting them onto the walls.
Each exhibition is to be disposed of after display, thus circumventing the normal cycle of speculation and consumption in the art market. When the idea for this pop-up show first reached Frank at his home in the Canadian village of Mabou, he said: »Cheap, quick, and dirty, that’s how I like it!”
