Batia Suter: Parallel Encyclopedia 1

Roma Publications


Batia Suter’s work intuitively situates found images in new contexts to provoke surprising reactions and significative possibilities. Parallel Encyclopedia contains a precise composition of images from other books. Underlying themes of the Amsterdam-based, Swiss artist’s practice are the ‘iconification’ and ‘immunogenicity’ of old images, and the circumstances by which they become charged with new associative values.

This is a reprint of Suter’s voluminous book, originally published in 2007 and covering a pictorial plethora of human history, science, philosophy, art, and culture.
