The photobook Blueprint 2017–20 explores how the mass media has influenced political debates and democratic processes during the process of Brexit. Norman Behrendt's photographs of Brexit-related video material examine what sort of imagery is used to influence people by stirring up deep-seated attitudes around national pride, immigration and lack of control. The blue color of the cyanotypes reflects the invisible influence of the European Union on the United Kingdom.

OTA bound paperback with coloured edges / 304 pages / Duotone offset printing / 17 x 25,5 cm / 212 photographs / Essay by London-based artist, critic and art historian Lucy Soutter / Appendix featuring crucial texts and speeches about Brexit and EU-UK relations



First edition of 800 copies
ISBN 978-91-984059-4-1

Probable Lies: University of Westminster MA Photography Arts Degree Show

Probable Lies: University of Westminster MA Photography Arts Degree Show

Private view: Fri 22nd June, 6.30 – 8.30pm
Opening hours: Sat 23rd June to Thu 28th June, 11am – 8pm
Ambika P3, University of Westminster, 35 Marylebone Road, London NW1 5LS

Probable Lies showcases the work of graduate students from the University of Westminster’s critically acclaimed MA Photography Arts course.

Thought-provoking, innovative and eclectic, Probable Lies highlights the diversity of contemporary art photography across genres and media – from analogue images to appropriated online content and digital animation. The exhibition features the artwork of Norman Behrendt, Francesco Catania, Zong Jhan Li, Carly Mason, Nigel Maynard, Arun Misra, Cheryl Newman, Henry Rice, Elinor Rowley, Sarah Peters, Beckie Smith and Rachel Wallace from a wide range of experiential and cultural backgrounds, whose highly individual visual practices have emerged from sustained, rigorous research and experimentation.
  
“The photographers in this exhibition have brushed against the theme of Probable Lies in a number of ways. Some of the images and footage that are most clearly fabricated speak the most deeply to the human condition. Roles are played, identities blurred, alternate worlds created, data glitched. The past and present are sandwiched into a single plane. The current political moment is reflected back at itself with its distortions enhanced. Everyday objects stand in for the cosmos. These works invite us to notice the lens, the screen, the surface of the print, the layers of mediation and construction that have gone into their making. They offer you richly conceived worlds that you have not seen before. Who is to say whether or not they are true and in what terms?” Dr. Lucy Soutter

Brave New Turkey at J1, Marseille

The more we think countries are closed off and mired in political or economic crises, the more photographers are there. They reveal, tell, attest, invent, repair and rebuild with their own language, that of the image. They decode the early signs of social change.

Come and share this taste for other places at major exhibitions that marked the Rencontres d’Arles this summer with 40 photographers who are wondering about the state of the world.

The World as it is! offers a journey from the shores of the Bosporus to sub-Saharan border areas, from the divided island of Cyprus to a Libya torn between war and refugees. You’ll dive into the watery world of Gideon Mendel; think about the Monsanto case, from climate change to the food crisis, with Mathieu Asselin; see architecture from suburban utopia to the urban sprawl of Ankara. From the local to the global, La Vuelta will take you to the heart of Colombia, where hope is returning after 60 years of armed conflict.

The World as it is! is a radical immersion into the heart of seething, complex geopolitics.

Greetings from Turkey is book of the month at LFI-blog

(...) Many of Behrendt’s motifs show the newly built mosques in areas that are still barren: city districts are still to be developed around them. While the photographer takes a neutral standpoint in his series, many of the new constructions appear rather displaced. As a result, the images shown of the city point even more firmly to the religious-political changes that have taken place in Turkey over the last twenty years. (...)
