"At first glance the photographer Santeri Tuori’s pictorial world appears to be timeless. On second glance, however, it becomes clear what is going on. Tuori’s compositions of trees, tangled branches, and clouds are sophisticated montages made up of countless photos arranged sideby-side or on top of each other. This results in nearly abstract, fascinatingly complex images of nature; because it harmonizes with the sublime depiction of nature, the process of seeing transcends itself. The eye is no longer guided toward a vanishing point around which the image is organized. Instead, viewers luxuriate in an inexhaustible wealth of perspectives that allow them to continue to discover new phenomena. This goes along with the dramaturgy that stages the publication from one page to the next. At the beginning, you look up into the treetops. These are followed by pictures of clouds set at eye level. The final chord consists of a series of photographs that looks back to the abstract entanglement of the treetops. In every respect this is an uplifting illustrated volume."

"Zofia Kulik’s rich artistic career has a dual nature. Between 1970 and 1987, she worked alongside Przemysław Kwiek as a member of the duo KwieKulik, after which she began to develop a successful individual career. While KwieKulik’s work has been well established as central to the East European neo-avant-garde art lexicon of the 1970’s and ’80s, Kulik’s solo work has yet to be examined in depth. The first publication devoted solely to her work, this monograph analyzes the themes of her rich and complex oeuvre, addressing the (post)communist condition, artistic labor, intermediality, and the conditions of working as a female artist. The book forms a portrait of Kulik as an artist whose work is both deeply focused and rich in variations that reflect the socio-political shifts in her native Poland. With contributions from leading art historians, including Edit András, Angela Dimitrakaki, Ewa Lajer-Burcharth, Suzana Milevska, and Tomasz Załuski."
