176 pages
1st Edition

English and Polish
YAGA is a photo book about the idea of ​​the emancipation of socially excluded women that the system finds inconvenient. It offers a subjective view of women and the inequality that exists even in the queer world, where men still have more space to tell their stories than non-heteronormative women, who seem to lose sight of it.

Baba Yaga is a common archetype in Slavic countries: it is about an old woman who lives alone in the forest, surrounded by an animated natural world, in which the ghosts of her ancestors manifest as black cats and old evil crows. (...) Baba Yaga, as the embodiment of patriarchal fears, brings to the fore issues of status, resources and norms that must be obeyed. The cabin in the Baba Yaga forest is perched on chicken feet, which symbolizes exclusion, being an image of isolation, loneliness, misery and poverty, being also a symbol of opposition and the emanation of revenge. potential. (excerpt from an essay by Agata Kalinowska)

Yaga constitutes an archetype of contemporary witch, but YAGA is, above all, an emancipatory idea. Agata Kalinowska’s first publication is a book on freedom, on non-heteronormative standards of attractiveness, the shame of age, and the deconstruction of the male-female myths that make up the system. It is also a work on the relationship between beauty and female identity imposed by society. It is about the liberating power of a conscious choice to be excluded, to function outside the limits of the norms and the established cultural context, about the isolation that allows one to exist on their own terms.

Agata Kalinowska - photographer, writer and waitress affiliated with BWA Wrocław, Ośrodek Postaw Twórczych (Center for Creative Arts), and the Wrocław bar scene. His interests include the experiences of the precariat, which he documents on his blog relativelyhuman.blogspot.com. Agata’s work has been presented in Poland and abroad….YAGA, was released by BWA Wrocław in August 2021

Remembering Enrique Metinides, who passed away a few days ago at the age of 88. For me one of the greatest press photographers, who with his images managed to convert brutality and tragedy of the daily life of Mexico City in to art. Not making it just more digestible but also making life more understandable... He sometimes was also called the "Mexican Weege" which I think does not pay enough tribute to this great artist and photographer. He was called also "el niño" given the fact that he started publishing his pictures in Mexican press at the age of 11.

I had the pleasure to visit Enrique in 2011 at his home in Mexico City.
We have stayed only 10 days but it was a very intense and exiting time ( where I managed to pinch my finger in to a driving car and catch the most intense food poisoning I ever experienced :-) But most of all we were able to film and interview Metinides on the streets of DF.
We also scanned a lot of material at his living room. Later in Berlin we printed SERIES, a book which I think is still one of the best I ever published under the imprint of Kominek Books. We produced the book with the help of the great Dutch book designer Sybren Kuiper. Thank you also once more to Veronique Ricardoni for putting us in touch with Enrique in the first place and to Carlos Alvarez Montero for the scanning at Enriques home! Also to my friend and brother Jacob Thein for the filming and support.

We also later exhibited the work in Berlin at Kominek Gallery. Despite the difficulties to get the attention of a larger public or any institutional support in Berlin, I think we made a great job in making Enriques work a little more know in Europe. Thank you also to Ann Kristin Kreisel for the great gallery and exhibition support during that period!

English Description

The Road Beyond is a book of peace, says photographer Ruslan Hrushchak about his work. The timing of the publication of his pictures and the poems of Iryna Tsilyk creates a stark irony: the unrest in eastern Ukraine, which has gone on for years, has turned into open war.

Hrushchak, born in Ukraine, has been living in Germany for 20 years. Tsilyk lives and works in Kyiv; by juxtaposing their outstanding art they have created a

River's Dream is the latest monograph by Curran Hatleberg, and a complete realization of the series exhibited at the 2019 Whitney Biennial.
Hatleberg is known for traveling America, guided by intuition, to create scenes of American life and landscape. Working collaboratively with the people he meets, he recounts intimate stories of family and community. Here, in the follow-up to his first monograph Lost Coast (TBW Books, 2016), Hatleberg centers his narrative on the dog days of summer. Sweltering heat, dripping humidity, lush vegetation, and screaming insects–River's Dream is a pulsing and episodic hallucination of life lived outdoors. In these sixty-five photographs, we move through swamps and groves, front yards and junkyards, encountering moments of haunting mystery and beautiful impermanence. Heightened by formal repetition, echo, and refrain, everyday scenes take on surreal, allegorical qualities. In the end, Hatleberg leaves us with the impression of memory, where the past is never gone, but appears and reappears endlessly, as in the flickering of a dream.
This book includes new texts by Natasaha Trethewey and Joy Williams commissioned for the publication

"When I first arrived in Tokyo in April, 1976 the plan was to spend a few days and then continue on to SE Asia. I decided to stow my luggage at the airport that first night so I could just wander around. I had no idea where I was going to stay. I took the monorail from Haneda airport into the city and then rode the circle of the Yamanote line around Tokyo. When I arrived at Shinjuku I got off the train. It seemed the brightest, noisiest and most crowded part of town. I spent the night wandering around Shinjuku and nearby neighborhoods and by morning I knew I wanted to stay. It’s perhaps worth pointing out that in 1976 there was nothing to prepare a first-time visitor for Tokyo. “Bladerunner-esque” had yet to enter the language. At the time the notion that the future had arrived, and was alive and well in an Asian city, was simply not known. And so, to stumble across it was thrilling and eye-opening.“

History is an errant and pliant concept that haunts dreams and fevers the imaginations of the living. It refuses to be fixed, and in its continual motivation for disobedience, it compounds society’s motivations to relate to its recorded events, moments, and changes that have led to a tacit knowledge of the present. In this, history challenges our reliability as something impartial or bearable. In abandoning fixity, history presents an uncertainty more than it offers a solid foundation from which to draw rationality. We covet the narrative of history for our perception of its functions as a way of illuminating our beliefs, however poorly tendered.
Significant themes are redressed in history, and they reform institutions and cultural movements alike. These themes and stories of the past can be borrowed from, bent, and modified to assign a new script or character. The wary citizens of the present use these themes to illustrate and compel historical episodes into backing credentials and reference points for the propaganda of the now. As the noted theorist and historian Frederic Jameson has pointed out, a license to regard history and its moving components as fixed is to err on the side of incaution as a gesture of mutable conscience. As per Jameson, “Always Historicize!” is a crucial and significant response to the problem of history, the past, and its manipulations from the present period.
History at best is a condition that suggests reverberation and echo are its main currencies. There is a relatable notion to history and the past, but one of which can never be exacted by someone who did not experience it firsthand.....

In 1889, Georg August Zenker, a gardener and botanist from Leipzig, took charge of the Jaunde (present-day Yaoundé) research station in the German colony of Kamerun. After six years’ tenure, Zenker was summarily relieved of his duties. He was said to be leading a polygamous life at the station with several African women, some of whom had borne him children. Zenker left the country, only to return soon afterwards as a private citizen.
He settled with his family (a woman from Dahomé and five children) in Bipindi, deep in the Kamerun jungle, where he built Bipindihof, a German colonial-style house and vast cocoa, rubber and banana plantations. The mainstay of his livelihood, however, consisted in collecting copious botanical and zoological specimens as well as ethnographic objects for German museums. Zenker’s thought and actions were, to be sure, heavily influenced by the colonial mindset. But on a number of occasions he clearly opposed the colonialist and militaristic practices of his superiors and other German countrymen.
He died in 1922 and was buried on the grounds of his Bipindihof. Zenker’s descendants live widely dispersed in Cameroon and Europe today, but most of them still regard the now crumbling Bipindihof as the cradle of the family. Yana Wernicke and Jonas Feige traveled to the present-day Republic of Cameroon several times for this photographic essay in order to retrace Zenker’s life there and portray his descendants.

Good Goddamn by Bryan Schutmaat

Exhibition until 27 of October 2018

Good Goddamn tells a nominally simple story. Shot over a period of a few days in February 2017, in Leon County, Texas, Good Goddamn documents, in only twenty-seven photographs, the last few days of freedom of Schutmaat’s friend Kris before he went into prison. As this is a book of hints and half-lights, the spaces between the pictures being as important, so to speak, as the pictures themselves, we are not informed of the crime that led to Kris’s incarceration, nor the duration of the sentence. But the fact he was not in custody possibly suggests that the misdemeanour was not serious, although the psychological weight of the book perhaps points to the opposite.
