Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This book, which accompanies a forthcoming exhibition at the Deutsche Guggenheim Museum, investigates the legacy of northern Romantic landscape painting in contemporary photography, sculpture and video. It presents artists' reveries on place, which transform the idealism of the Romantic tradition through the specificity of photographic representation. The book features works by some seven artists who are inspired by the northern climes in which they live, including Stan Douglas, Olafur Eliasson, Eiger Esser, Thomas Flechtner, Roni Horn and Armin Linke.
