Seven Sounds, Seven Circles.

Seven Sounds, Seven Circles. Photographs by Lothar Baumgarten. Edited by Kaira Cabanas. Text by Christian Rattemeyer, Thomas Bartscherer, John Curley. Kunsthaus Bregenz, 2009. 168 pp., Illustrated throughout, 6x9¼".

"This monograph is a compendium of Lothar Baumgarten’s work and artistic thinking.

The various essential aspects of his work, such as language, architecture, photography and history are highlighted in four essays.

A current interview with the artist, conducted by Christian Rattemeyer, a biography of his work and a well-informed introduction by co-editor Kaira Cabañas make this publication the first seminal book on Lothar Baumgarten. As with many of the artist’s previous book projects, the form and typograph of both these publications were conceived by Walter Nikkels for and with Lothar Baumgarten."
