Issue 17
Dec 2014 – Feb 2015

Issue 17 of frieze d/e looks at images, archives and their dissemination, from Cold War photography in the GDR to the artwork in the digital age.

Contributing Editor Christy Lange profiles Hamburg-based artist Peter Piller, whose use of found images foreshadowed the way Tumblr has shaped online image culture.

Writer and critic Kolja Reichert remembers “the great, awe-inspiring, incorruptible punk of German photography,” Michael Schmidt (1945–2014). 

Also featuring: Art historian Susanne von Falkenhausen‘s lament for the work of art in the age of digital circulation; frieze's Amy Sherlock gauges the distance between seeing and being seen in the paintings of Ellen Gronemeyer; and critic Esther Buss unearths hidden narratives of power in Jan Peter Hammer‘s films.
