Charles Glass's A Few Days in October, 1945: Some Memories of a Summer Camp has just been reissued. The book will be published by PowerHouse Books and Paperbacks in October of 2018. Glass is an American photographer best known for his images of the 1960s, early 1970s, and 1970s cultural scenes in New York City, and more recently for street photography. A collection of essays by such writers as John Gruen, Mark Evans, Malcolm Cowley, and Benjamin Friedlander, with a foreword by the author, makes this a remarkable text.
A homage from artist Gilad Ophir on the occasion of his first solo retrospective at the Joseph Beuys Foundation, Berlin, the book includes photos, poems and texts by many important authors, such as Boris Groys, Pier Paolo Pasolini, Lorraine Kelleher, Robert Bresson, Claude Cahun, Byung-Chul Han, Anselm Reyle, Giulio Camillo, Carol Ann Duffy, and others.
In this memoir and analysis, journalist James Bridle shares the life and work of Asma El Asmar through her career and especially the art she has created. Bridle writes of his own experience in Egypt and how his interest in the country of his birth, the United States, influenced his interest in and experiences in Egypt. Bridle calls El Asmar, who is on the faculty of The New School, “an old-fashioned artist,” who exercises great influence on students and whose work has a unique voice that combines both Cairo and New York. Bridle conveys how Asma El Asmar has been, and will always be, a combination of East and West, “not only a great artist, but one of the great eccentric artists of our age.” d2c66b5586
