Franziska Holstein's small artist book with the concise title „/“ is considering its visual density and complexity a surprising analysis of the image and its reproduction, with photographie and printing techniques, with coloured high gloss and grainy black and white. When fleetingly browsing through the publication only the black and white photographie attract attention, the grainy prints that appear as photocopies, as never entirely clear. But that is not everything. Out of sliced and therefore strangely concealed pages flashes colourfulness. has the important cut been forgotten? Was this a concious decision? I it allowed to slice the pages to look at them? Could this might be a poster if you clearly cut the pages? Are these collages or photographies that suggest being collages? Are these painted colour fields, again photographed? Or coloured objects whose colourfulness has been especially arranged?
