«The Hobbyist» Artist Talk: Ari Marcopoulos in conversation with Katharina Zimmermann

Artist Talk: Ari Marcopoulos in conversation with Katharina Zimmermann (in English).

The photo series Directory (2006–2010) by Ari Marcopoulos (born 1957 in Amsterdam) is shown in the exhibition The Hobbyist. The photographs were taken in Marcopoulos' home city of New York and on his extensive travels throughout the USA and far beyond. Whenever he was developing his 35mm films, Marcopoulos would place all the prints he liked in one pile. In this way, a large volume of images built up, which he eventually copied in full and simply compiled in an A4-size photo book.

Art historian Katharina Zimmermann talks to the artist about his contacts with the skaters and sprayers of the 1990s subculture and about his idea of creating a book that indiscriminately includes all the images he spontaneously liked.
