Katarzyna Mazur: ANNA KONDA

dienacht Publishing proudly presents: ‘ANNA KONDA’ by Katarzyna Mazur!

In 2010, female fighters Anna Konda and Red Devil founded the Female Fight Club Berlin. This private and unique Club appeared as revival of female wrestling – tradition that dates back to Berlin of the Golden Twenties, when it was fairly popular.

Nowadays, competitions take place in a rented room located in Berlin – Marzahn. The club is open for women of all age and weight. The fights follow no official guidelines, have no standard categories and do not demand any fighting style. It is all about challenging one’s mind and the mind of an opponent.

Offset print, white and black on pale flesh coloured paper, held by an elastic strap

Paweł Jaszczuk – Kinky City

dienacht Publishing proudly presents: Paweł Jaszczuk’s ‘Kinky City’!

Tokyo nights are full of toys. Dolls, costumes, threads and needles, masks, fancy dress and many more. Naturally, it isn’t kids’ stuff, but toys for the grown-ups. Paweł Jaszczuk watched them play. This needs some determination, of course. For about three years, from 2007 to 2010, he routinely grabbed his bike after returning from his day jobs and dived into the metropolis’s nightlife, looking for Tokyo’s swinger clubs and happening bars, its couple kissas and private sex-parties. He won over their hosts and owners, sat at bars and in booths, listened to at times questionable music and convinced the guests to be pictured by him while living their fantasies. He deliberately took the part of the voyeur, which is an integral element of the role play in place anyway – though usually without a camera.

In his photographs one encounters a round of tradition and pop, pain and desire, sex and taboo, intimacy and anonymity. Jaszczuk used an extremely light sensitive film with his Leica, which leaves only few things in the dark. The bluntness of the images, the physicality in the games of dominance and submission, and the array of fetish paraphernalia – uniforms from French maid to SS – make for a somewhat disturbing experience. Moments of dizzy rush, captured in close ups, alternate with scenes depicted from a rather distant perspective of a curios beholder. Frenzy takes turns with the prosaic. The night presents itself as the heady opposite of the daily grind, though at the same time the practiced fantasies – however kinky they are – are marked by a set of recurring roles, motives and traditions. Eventually daybreak means a change of attire for the revelers: from latex and uniform to suite and business costume, which cover up the bruises of the past hours.

This book is co-published by dienacht Publishing and the Leica Gallery Vienna, on the occasion of the exhibition PAWEŁ JASZCZUK / KINKY CITY, Leica Gallery Vienna (4 June to 12 September 2015, in cooperation with Leica Gallery Warsaw, curated by Rafał Łochowski).

NOCTURNES is part of the Exhibition “Reading a Photobook” in St. Petersburg

We at dienacht Publishing are happy and honored that NOCTURNES is one of only 15 books at the exhibition “Reading a Photobook”, among authors / photographers like Cristina De Middel, Taryn Simon, Alec Soth or Erik Kessels!

The project “Reading a Photobook” is a guide into contemporary photobooks and into the diverse ways of “reading” them. The project consists of an exhibition, a workshop, and a competition on photobook review writing. “Reading a Photobook” focuses on both a photographer and a critic, an image and a text, practice and theory.
The exhibition, located at the Gallery of Printing, presents 15 works grouped into five chapters according to ways artists work with their material: photobook as a research, as a collaboration, as an experiment, as an image, and as a publication based on a different book.
Will you be interpreting photographs, analyzing design and texts, comparing a book with another one, or just scenting an odor and feeling the touch of paper?..
Visitors will choose their own ways of “reading” photobooks. As well as they will be introduced to photobook world’s experts’ opinions about publications through a take away booklet full of quotations from blogs, books and other platforms devoted to photobooks.

Books at the exhibition:
AM projects (Aaron McElroy, Daisuke Yokota, Ester  Vonplon, Gert Jochems, Olivier Pin-Fat and Tiane Doan na Champassak), “Nocturnes” / Oliver Chanarin & Adam Broomberg, “Holy Bible” / Frank Bruggeman, Ernst van der Houven, Samira Ben Laloua, “Club Donny” / Hans Gremmen, “The Mother Road” / Jacqueline Hassink, “The Table of Power 2″ / Erik Kessels, Erik Steinbrecher, Erik Van Der  Weijde, “Tables to Meet” / Cristina De Middel, “Party, Quotations from Chairman  Mao TseTong” / Jim Reed, “The Aggressors” / Tørbjørn Rødland, “Vanilla Partner” / Machiguchi Satoshi, MATCH & Company, “Live Match Kyoto” / Lieko Shiga, “Rasen Kaigan/album” / Taryn Simon, “Birds of the West Indies”  / Alec Soth, “Poster Book” / Stéphanie Solinas, “Sans Titre, M.

dienacht Publishing proudly presents: Deep Inside by Tatiana Tcherkezyan

Feeling offcast. Flecks of ash fill the air. Slowly, they lie down to my feet. Somewhere inside there is something that destroys, it attracts those indifferent and closed. Others. Those unable to coexist, emotionally impenetrable. The same as me. Deep inside there is the void where light disappears.

The regular edition is sold out. A few copies of the Special Edition with Print are still available (for a preview of the print, please check the last image of the slideshow).

Ekaterina Anokhina: Inner Mongolia (2nd Edition)

If the paper of the first edition made the book look a coal mine, the paper of this second edition makes it look like a desert storm.

“And where is it, this place?”
“That’s the point, it is nowhere. It is quite impossible to say that it is located anywhere in the geographical sense. Inner Mongolia is not called that because it is inside Mongolia. It is inside anyone who can see the void, although the word ‘inside’ is quite inappropriate here. And it is not really any kind of Mongolia either, that’s merely a way of speaking. The most stupid thing possible would be to attempt to describe to you what it is. Take my word for this, at least – it is well worth striving all your life to reach it. And nothing in life is better than being there.”
“And how does one come to see the void?”
“Look into yourself.” said the baron.

(From “Chapayev and Void” by Victor Pelevin, translated by Andrew Bromfield)

Edition of 90 numbered copies + 10 copies with a gelatin silver print (numbered and signed)

Calin Kruse – You scared the shit out of me, so I’m leaving

Erotic fairs are probably the only events where all social classes and ages are gathered in the same place.

The visitors – exactly from the hick town where all the pictures were shot – brim over with bigotry. Because on one hand there is the hypocritical tolerance and openness at night, the meat market – and the gazes! – under the cover of eroticism. On the other hand the smooth smugness reveals in the daytime – lived family idyll and dominical church going included.

It is all about schizo provincialism. The abandon and unleashing of the bourgeois which seem enormous at first, in closer inspection keeps exactly within the defined limits. Because in this loud, piercing, adrenalized carnival of drives, the excess is planned. Like that everything is in best order. In the garden plot, on the parking lane, in the frontyard – and in fact also on the erotic fair.
