I Went (after On Kawara) by Eric Doeringer

This is a limited-edition book created in conjunction with my re-enactment of On Kawara’s I Went. It features prints of the maps I drew on the first day of every month - 13 maps in total (because I traveled between two locations on one of the days). Each map is printed with a red line showing the path I traced that day and hand-stamped with the date. Locations include New York City, Berlin, Montreal, Miami, and Amherst, MA.

Ofrenda Photographs by Sebastián Szyd

Publisher: ANTENNAE COLLECTION, New York 2013 

Publisher’s Description:

"Non-visibility does not stop Hindus from believing in the existence of Saraswati. Just as the multiple horizons on one side of this book are present independently of the acknowledgment of the viewer looking at the photographs on the other side." -Nandita Raman

Bagdad Calling by Geert van Kesteren
This books shows how Iraqi refugees are living in Jordan, Syria and Turkey using both professionally shot images, and through the eyes of Iraqis themselves. Van Kesteren amassed hundreds of photos from the mobile phones and digital cameras of Iraqi citizens that reveal places where journalists dare not tread for reasons of personal safety.

Eric Doeringer's two new books: Autobiography (after Sol LeWitt) and Collected Works. Now available the bdp store.

"Autobiography" is a remake of Sol LeWitt’s 1980 book "Autobiography". The original book depicted the contents of LeWitt’s home/studio in a series of photographs, arranged in grids of nine photos to a page. My version reproduces reproductions of pages from LeWitt’s book (found online and in art books), including images of almost every page in the original book. Because of differences in the source material, the pages vary widely in resolution, color, and cropping.

"Collected Works" compiles eight of my books into one convenient volume. The books are combined together, so that page one of "Collected Works" is a "sandwich" of the first page of all eight books, page two contains the second page of each book, page three the third page, etc. "Collected Works" reproduces "Squares With Sides And Corners Torn Off", "Some Los Angeles Apartments", "Real Estate Opportunities", "The Location of Lines", and "Records" in their entirety, plus excerpts from "60 Years Later", "Arcs Circles & Grids", and "The Xeroxed Book"
