Antanas Sutkus. In Memoriam£10.00
Portraits of Kaunas and Vilnius Jewish Ghetto Survivors, printed to accompany the exhibition Antanas Sutkus: In Memoriam (2016).
The In Memoriam series depicts those few who survived the Holocaust in Lithuania, implying the horror of dramatic reality half a century after the event. It confirms the deeply humane gesture of the photographer who captures memory and time as they open up to understanding, redemption and rebirth. The text includes essays by philosopher Leonidas Donskis and Kamile Rupeikaite (Vilna Gaon Museum, Vilnius), as well as the interviews with last living survivors of Kaunas Ghetto. English, first publication in an edition of 1,600. Softback, 112 pages. ISBN: 978-0-9557394-9-1

State and Time contains 59 colour and 25 duotone plates, featuring many Dmitry Konradt’s iconic images of Russian underground rock bands, such as Aquarium, Kino, Aukzion. Text by London art critic Alexander Kan and St Petersburg historian Lev Lurie.
Timur Novikov & Joseph Brodsky. Horizons£10.00
Horizons features unpublished dialogue between leading figure of the St Petersburg underground art scene,
Timur Novikov, and eminent Russian poet and Nobel Prize winner, Joseph Brodsky. Their meeting in Amsterdam in 1993 (on the occasion of Novikov’s retrospective exhibition at the Stedelijk Museum) resulted in a fascinating and erudite exchange, reflecting a reciprocal network of cultural and autobiographical references to St Petersburg as a city “on the edge” – an intersection where Western and Eastern cultural traditions met. The book pairs poems by Joseph Brodsky with textiles and silkscreens by Timur Novikov. Edited by Dominik Czechowski, curator of the Horizons exhibition.
