This artists’ book is being published for the exhibition «Comment rester fertile?» by Gerda Steiner and Jörg Lenzlinger at the Centre culturel suisse in Paris (from 18 September-12 December, 2010). The photographs on the subject of fertility (in the broadest meaning of the word), taken over many years on various trips, have been grouped in pairs with supplementary texts that, through their interaction and incongruity, conjure up spontaneous associative feelings and arouse the reader’s curiosity to take a closer look. The pictures, unfamiliar from two points of view - as souvenirs from far-off places that have, in addition, been manipulated - send us off on our own journey into the absurdity of reality.
