Title: Archiv Utopia: Das Brasília-Projekt von Lina
Kim und Michael Wesely / Archive Utopia: Project Brasília by Lina Kim
and Michael Wesely
Authors: Edited by Anette Hüsch
Between 2003 and 2009, the Brazilian-Korean
artist Lina Kim and the German artist Michael Wesely embarked on a
journey into the present-day reality and the archives of this city.
One result of their artistic hunt for clues is the "Arquivo Brasília".
While conducting their research, Kim and Wesely also pho- tographed
themselves in Brasília – choosing their backdrops in part as a result
of their archival studies. The time-exposure photographs exaggerate the
city’s utopian character even further with their diffuse light,
providing some unusual perspectives on this unique place.
This book presents a unique juxtaposition of historic photographs, many
of them published for the first time, and new photographic works.
