Der Greif #11 (with Jason Fulford)
2018 | Print Publication & Performances | Lothringer 13, Munich, Aperture Gallery, New York
For issue 11, Der Greif has invited Jason Fulford, American photographer, artist and publisher of J&L Books as guest editor. Sourcing from our large archive of past submissions, Fulford’s edit takes us on an eclectic tour through diverse visual languages.
In order to visualize and explore the various ways and intersections between images and text, Der Greif and guest editor Jason Fulford organised a special event related to issue 11: A variety show in 8 acts where the activity changes every seven minutes. The event originates in Jason Fulford’s editing process. For issue 11, he sourced photographs from parts of our digital archive of past submissions, starting with around 40.000 pictures. His pre-selection for the issue played an important role in the making of the show.
In collaboration with Jörg Koopmann, artist, photographer and curator at Lothringer13, we invited 5 Munich-based artists to contribute to the variety show. We did a second version of the project at Aperture Gallery in New York City in February 2019, featuring 6 New York based artists.
After 10 years and 10 print issues, Der Greif has decided to explore new territories and to change its appearance. In this and future issues, we invite guest editors to work with the same concepts of de- and recontextualizing single images through their individual working methods.
Jason Fulford is a photographer and co-founder of J&L Books. He is a Guggenheim Fellow and a frequent lecturer at universities.
