A Companion to Federico Clavarino’s ‘The Castle’
21 x 14 cm
Published by Dalpine & Temple
on the occasion of the exhibition at Temple, Paris
During 2016 Temple and Dalpine have partnered to start a cycle of exhibitions that, taking a number of publications as a starting point, bring the works of various photographers to Temple Gallery.
A Companion to… is the series of publications that accompany each of the exhibitions with the aim of offering new perspectives on the works presented.
A Companion to Federico Clavarino’s ‘The Castle’ offers an insight into Clavarino’s work through images that were not included in the book or the exhibition, the author’s notebook, with drawings and drafts, and excerpts of texts by Franz Kafka, Peter Sloterdijk, Giorgio Agamben, Guy Debord and other writers and philosophers whose words have been an important creative source for the author.
