Interview by Laura Carbonell»»

A recent interview about »You and Me« with Punte de Fuga. Please find here the english Version.

P.D.F.: Ten years ago, you started Böhm Kobayashi, the project where you have been publishing artist books. It seems trivial to say that every book is a completely unique adventure but in your case it shows how creative and how engaged Oliver and you Katja are with the book format. I wanted us to talk deeply about one specific book you published this time with Spector Books: You and Me»». Most of your books where gathering specific series of work, here it’s about different territories, different cities you go through: Bosnia, Germany and the U.S. Why did you decide to make a book about places that have no apparent connection?

création d’un fanzine photographique
Le Bal, Paris.
Rolling Paper #1, Sept 2, Sept 3, 2017

Récipients du prix LUMA Dummy Book Award 2016 aux Rencontres d’Arles pour leur projet “You and me” , Katja Stuke et Oliver Sieber développent une pratique artistique traversée autant par des questions de recherche identitaire et d’appartenance sociale que d’exil, de territoire et de surveillance. Artistes, photographes et curateurs, Stuke et Sieber pensent leur pratique sous des angles de recherche toujours novateurs. L’édition en constitue un aspect central puisqu’ils auto-publient sous le nom Böhm Kobayashi des livres et fanzines d’artiste depuis plus de 10 ans. Dans le cadre de la foire ‘Rolling Paper’ au BAL, ils seront présents pour un workshop performatif d’une journée. Conditions de participation requises. Inscriptions obligatoires.

Book Release »You and Me«

16. Juni 2017 von BöhmKobayashi | Comments Off on Book Release »You and Me«


»You and Me« follows the story of a Bosnian-born refugee who lived in Dusseldorf in the 1990s before moving to the US. The photobook sets up links between Bosnia, Germany, and the US, while also providing a contextual frame for the artists and their relationship to the past. »We didn’t just want to tell a historical story; instead we set out to shift the perspective between the present and the future and generate connections between the three countries using visual material relating to the military, politics, music, and film.« The book includes more than two hundred images organized in twenty-two chapters reflecting the different aspects of the series, as well as five other chapters including research material, background information, some short stories, and a text by Aleksandar Hemon. You and Me won the LUMA Foundation’s Dummy Book Award at the 2016 Les Rencontres de la Photographie Festival in Arles. The project came into being with support from the MoCP Chicago, the Goethe-Institut in Chicago, the Goethe-Institut Sarajevo, Les Rencontres de la Photographie and the LUMA Foundation in Arles.
»You and Me« will be released in Arles as part of »Les Rencontres de la Photographie« festival, with an exhibition, artist talk and booksigning as part of »Cosmos Arles Books« on July 7th, 2017.
