Presentation by Mörel Books:

" « 80 per cent of artists are dealing with mother issues. » In this personal interview the internationally praised German artist Hans-Peter Feldmann muses on the magnetic power of women, and shares how he has used art as both escape and therapy.

« Make a job out of it and all is lost. » Feldmann does not consider being an artist to be his job, because considering it as such would smother his enthusiasm. Art, he feels, has been discredited by the sky-high sales through auction houses, which is a transaction between investors and collectors – not artists. But art simply should not be put on a pedestal: « Art is an ordinary part of life like sports, food and sleep. »

Images of women attract Feldmann, who claims that the majority of artists are dealing with mother issues: « It's always about women, about mothers, images of women. » As an example, he points out how public toilets for men are similar to ancient caves with their many drawings of vulvas.

The repetitive function of collecting pictures is therapeutic to Feldmann, and makes things clear and tangible for him. Many artists use their art as a form of therapy, « as a flight to another world someone from the old world can't access. » As for Feldmann, who too had mother-issues and grew up during the war and the post-war years, this was also the case: « … the images opened a world to me that was very, very lovely. » "

This book is designed as a facsimile of artist books created by Hans-Peter Feldmann.

Feldmann, Hans-Peter

Hans-Peter Feldmann is a German visual artist and photographer, a figure of conceptual art. Since the beginning of his career in the 60's, he has used the book format, the artist book and the photobook, as an essential way to organize and present his work. His projects often stem from collected series of images, vernacular photographs, postcards, etc, which he assembles, arranges and re-contextualises. He is also reknowned for his carefully conceived exhibitions that usually have a very elaborate scenography. Among the photobooks published by Hans-Peter Feldmann: "Die Töten 1967-1993"  (Feldmann Verlag, 1998), "Liebe / Love" (Walther König, 2006), "Frauen" (Mörel Books, 2020). © Portrait - Copyright by Die Welt.
