Claudia de la Torre, Lockende Berge

A window contains. A dust cover contains. A picture book without its content. The window as display. A play on displacement displaying the work. The book as the middle point embraced by the flaps. “The brilliant, uniquely great photos”, absent. For Stroma, Claudia de la Torre reproduced 1 to 1 the picture book “Lockende Berge” published in 1971 by Linda Verlag, and re-publsihed it in an edition of 15 copies. The book is filled with stories and footnotes pointing to empty spaces framed by marks intended to show where the images should be glued on. A blurb text of the book can be read, framing the space of the window as parenthesis – Waiting for the public to fill in the blanks.
