Ines von Ketelhodt — architektur / baukunst
(Ines von Ketelhodt) architektur / baukunst. [By] Ines v. Ketelhodt. Offenbach am Main. 1987. 48p. 11.5” x 6.5”. Concept, design, typography, photography and binding by Ines v. Ketelhodt. 22 black and white photographs. Phototype-set and offset. Transparent and opaque paper; binding of white paperboard covered with transparent paper with title and illustration on front. Photographs were photocopied to take away the smoothness of the photographs. The texts and photography fragments are interrelated and given equal value by being set in vertical and horizontal alignment and juxtaposition. 70 copies, signed and numbered by v. Ketelhodt. Fine.
v. Ketelhodt writes: “Space in architecture. Architecture in space. The space assumed by a book. The space inside the book: layers of opaque and transparent paper – creating new space. Twenty-two photography fragments show sections of the architecture from the Museum für Kunsthandwerk in Frankfurt am Main, conceived by Richard Meier. The black-and-white photographs were taken in 1985, the year the museum opened.”
Text fragments are by Le Corbusier, Demokrites, Theo van Doesburg, Naum Gabo, Hans Hollein, Yves Klein, Rob and Leon Krier, Richard Meier, Antoine Pevsner, Hans Poelzig, Mies van der Rohe, Werner Ruhnau and Louis Sullivan.
