H. R. Giger, Polaroids, 9783906011, 2014
Polaroids contains a selection of unpublished photographs from the personal archives of the Swiss artist and set designer H.R. Giger. Given the ephemeral nature of the Polaroid format, these are snapshots that the artist used as references for his own work as well as for process and work documentation. He personalized many of the Polaroids that customarily lay in piles around his crowded, darkly decorated home in Zurich by scratching, painting, and drawing over the motifs in a surreal and animating style. Casual and light in their approach, the photographs intimate sex, death, pop, and his inscrutable sense of humor. They provide a view into a corner of Giger’s world that until now had remained largely overlooked.
H.R. Giger (1940-2014) was a Swiss painter, sculptor, and industrial and set designer.

Simon Haenni, ACOCO, 9783906011, 2013
ACOCO contains 138 photographs divided into fifteen chapters of various lengths and rhythms. The images are all soberly laid out in the same format. Formally, the book resembles an archive, although the contents are not ordered according to themes or clearly defined categories. The aesthetic and sense of distance of the work brings it closer to documentary and architectural photography, while the absence of the usual geographic and temporal references reveals a subtle and witty reflection on the nature of the medium of photography and the reading and interpretation of images in general.
Simon Haenni (b. 1985, Nechâtel, Switzerland) works as a photographer and image-based artist in Geneva. He is a member of the Maximage collective, which engages in graphic design, photography, and publication projects.

Tobias Madison, Drawings, 9783906011, 2012
«Drawings» is a collection of digital drawings created between 2008 and early 2012 by the young Swiss artist Tobias Madison. The works are based on the gestural application of software chains of command – Madison uses this formal language as work material for exhibitions, textile applications and performances.
Pop, a love-hate relationship with abstraction, emptied design codes of the past decades, as well as fragments and ruins of the digital culture are interwoven into the iconography of the images. Influenced by the fast, almost spastic transition into the digital culture, Madison continually questions authorship, medium and distribution. Without ever lapsing into the prevalent cultural pessimism, Madison, in his maximum aesthetic, articulates a biting commentary on the present.
