Susan Tallman

is a writer, art historian, and editor-in-chief of the soon-to-be-launched web journal Art in Print. She has written extensively on issues of multiplicity, reproduction and the human love of material things.

Since the 1970s Barbara Bloom has used photography, installation, film and books as a means of looking at issues of collecting, museology, design, taste and our investment in the objects with which we surround ourselves. In this project for frieze, created together with writer Susan Tallman, Bloom – who is referred to throughout as ‘BB’ – presents selections from her 2008 installation and book The Collections of Barbara Bloom, a work about ‘the way things carry ideas’
