The photo book Kratzungen blau by Marko Lipuš, published at the end of 2018 by Berlin publishing house Revolver Publishing, showcases for the first time all photographs from the eponymous series in print. The 18 original photographs, which at first glance appear to be abstract landscapes, were taken at the Leipzig cotton spinning mill: Lipuš photographed the empty industrial buildings and reinterpreted the motifs with his special method of “scratching.” In the sense of an intervention, he reworks the picture’s surface, revealing layers of material underneath, thereby (mis)guiding the viewer's gaze: The spatial dimensions seem to dissolve, creating a new sense of space. During the event, the photo book, two limited editions and selected photographs from Kratzungen blau will be exhibited.
