Over the centuries, fashions in the art market have been manifest in diverse forms. The book brings together works from the 16th century until today and sheds light for the first time on the broad field that interconnects art and buying.

Stillleben BRD

Christian Werner
The photographer Christian Werner has long been interested in the history of the old Federal Republic of Germany, “this country that no longer exists, but has left its mark on us all.” His latest object of study is the house of a deceased eighty-year-old. Through his camera he approaches the individual, yet collective memory of a familiar type of interior from a typically provincial, post-war life in West Germany. The melancholy, beautiful series comprises around one hundred photographs stamped with Werner’s inimitable, clear gaze, and is presented in a catalogue and exhibition at the Kunstpalais. Authors from various disciplines supplement the photographs with textual miniatures.
