Title: Ich sehe was, was du nicht siehst! Sehmaschinen und Bilderwelten: Die Sammlung Werner Nekes
Editors: Bodo von Dewitz & Werner Nekes
Publisher: Steidl Verlag (Gottingen)
Printing Year: 2002

Condition/Details: Bound in pictorial blue boards, this volume is a scarce exploration of the visual history collection of the German experimental film-maker, professor and curator Werner Nekes (b. 1944). The work explores the history of optical invention and "pre-cinematic" media and examines the reliability of visual perception. The volume is made up of eighteen essays. David Robinson in his review of this book writes: "Werner Nekes is the exemplar of the artist-collector, for whom a collection is not just a checklist accumulation of objects, but a creative work and philosophical exploration. As a prolific avant-garde film-maker since 1965, he has consistently sought to startle and stimulate the spectator's vision. Appropriately then, the principle of his collection, dating from the 1970s, is to demonstrate how media of very varied sorts have been employed to delight, assist, deceive, shock, or in any other way excite the eyes. He is quite catholic in the quest: incunabula and the classic texts of Scientific Revolution optics (Dürer, Kircher, Zahn, Scheiner, Schott, s' Gravesande) sit easily side by side with baroque automata or a Leporello postcard mailed from Gillingham in 1900; the Lumière Cinématographe alongside a 1950s juke-box. Klaus Barthelmess's essay, 'Kosmologie und Sammlung', discusses the cabinets of curiosities (Kunstkammern, Wunderkammern) of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries - microcosmic collections of the wonders of science and nature through which their gentleman-amateur owners sought clues to cosmic order. The Nekes collection is the twenty-first century equivalent: the cluttered shelves in a photograph of his own Wunderkammer at Mülheim an der Ruhr (p. 414) are not much different from those in the 1617 Breughel-Rubens painting Allegorie des Gesichtssinns (p. 2o2)" (Print Quaterly, Volume XX, Number 2, June 2003).

The volume is lavishly illustrated with black-and-white and color photographs. The volume is in excellent condition, and is solidly bound with clean, bright pages. The book measures approximately 9.75" x 11.25" and contains 455 pages. Shipping cost (within the U.S.) for this lot will be: $7.50

In this scene, a young soldier holds up a book in one hand, while a sailor sits at his feet reading. This poster was produced as part of the United War Work Campaign which brought together seven organizations--the YMCA, the YWCA, the American Library Association, the War Camp Community Service, the Knights of Columbus, the Jewish Welfare Board, and the Salvation Army--into one large funding drive charged with raising over $170 million for the war in 1918. In a public address in 1917, John D. Rockefeller described the War Work Campaign as “the greatest voluntary altruistic endeavor the world has ever known. For the first time in history, people of Jewish, Catholic, and Protestant faith are standing side by side and working in closest cooperation for a great common cause.”
