Library Shelf Location 18.KUBE
Publication Date 2018

The heart of filmmaker Friedl vom Gröller (b. 1946, London) is constituted by portraiture – whether she captures friends, acquaintances, family members, filmmakers, artists or simply clients, each for the most part gazing directly into the camera.

Since 1972 to the present, Kubelka has also placed herself in front of the camera for her project Jahresportraits (Yearly Portraits) in which she mercilessly documents the process of aging. It has become the structural credo of Kubelka’s artistic practice to juxtapose the individual photograph with many other photographs.

This monograph focuses upon individual serial works as combined with contemporary portrait series showing e.g. artists from Senegal which are combined with others from Kubelkaʼs archive.

So as to multiply perspectives, individual portraits are juxtaposed with others (double portraits), or more. Featuring text by artist, author and filmmaker, Miranda July; Berlin based writer, film curator and lecturer, Madeleine Bernstorff; and curator, writer and member of sixpackfilm, Dietmar Schwärzler.
