Gerhard Steidl is the most sought-after publisher in the photo/art world and Dayanita Singh will speak about her book-making experience with Gerhard Steidl and the profound impact it has had on her practice. This presentation will be followed by her latest collaboration with Gerhard Steidl – Dream Villa.
Renowned artists from around the world travel to “Steidlville” in Göttingen, Germany to collaborate with celebrated publisher and printer, Gerhard Steidl, creating outstanding books of exceptional quality. He hosts them in his Half Tone Hotel, so they are available to be at press at any time of night or day. Personally involved in every stage of their book’s creation, artists make the rounds from image processing and colour proofing, to design and paper choice, and finally to press. While there is a great deal of satisfaction derived in the process, it is rigorous and highly demanding.
