Description

This artist’s book, which represents Luis Jacob’s installation Album III at Documenta 12, consists of hundreds of illustrations from various books, magazines and other publications; They can be understood as a kind of image database. Images from published sources form a museum without walls; a vast almost epic narrative composed of various themes and emphases including the symbolic space of art production, soft structures, the active role of the observer and social participation.
