Reprint

Batia Suter’s work intuitively situates found images in new contexts to provoke surprising reactions and significative possibilities. Parallel Encyclopedia, which she conceived between 2004 and 2007, contains a precise composition of numerous images taken solely from other books. Significant underlying themes expressed in the Amsterdam-based, Swiss artist’s practice are the 'iconification' and 'immunogenicity' of old images, and the circumstances by which they assume or become charged with new associative values. This is a reprint of Suter’s voluminous book, originally published in 2007 and covering a pictorial plethora of human history, science, philosophy, art, and culture.

592 pages, 22 x 29 cm, hardcover, Roma Publications (Amsterdam).
