With The Weimar File, Vik Muniz (São Paulo, 1961) draws us into an unpleasant experience with a noir tinge that takes place in post-9/11 United States and from which the photographic project covered in this book came to be.
Using the Kafkaesque situation he is subject to as his starting point, Muniz invites us to reflect on the intentionality and significance of photography.
Thanks to an artistic residency in the city of Weimar, he took thousands of photographs of objects, which he tried to rid of their historic significance in order to endow them with an intriguing quality.
Edited by Vik Muniz.
