Don’t miss the launch of The World According to Roger Ballen in Joburg (19 Mar)
More about the book!
The David Krut Bookstore, Jonathan Ball Publishers and Rabbi Cyril Harris Community Centre invite you to the launch of The World According to Roger Ballen.
Ballen will share insights on his practice in relation to the launch of his latest publication in discussion with journalist Tymon Smith.
Throughout his career, Ballen has pursued a singular artistic goal: to give expression to the human psyche – to explore, visually, the hidden forces that shape who we are.
This retrospective monograph, published in association with a major exhibition at the Halle Saint Pierre, Paris, provides a unique overview of the life and work of one of the most distinctive art photographers practising today.
The World According to Roger Ballen, co-authored with Colin Rhodes, looks at Ballen’s career in the wider cultural context beyond photography, including his connections with and collections of Art Brut. It features photographs selected from across Ballen’s career, along with installations created exclusively for the exhibition at Halle Saint Pierre and photographs of objects and works from Ballen’s own collection of Art Brut.
