Pornografie
Klaus Staeck

Published by Steidl, 2007

Softcover, 392 pages, 200 x 250 mm

Re-edition (first edition thus)

Originally published in 1971, during the Vietnam War, Pornografie is a bewildering collection of curios of everyday violence: press photos of street fights, police brutality, naked victims of war and tortured prisoners follow staged body-art pictures and a wide array of objects colored by desire, power, exposure and surveillance.
With a name that refers to x-rated images and the obscene, the works shown in Pornografie may be far from a voyeur's expectations. Indeed, it is filled with obscene photos, but as the philosopher Herbert Marcuse put it: "It's not the picture of a naked woman that's obscene but that of a general who shows off his medals earned in a war of aggression."
Pornografie remains one the greatest anti-war and anti-violence artist books ever made; a timeless document of political artwork and an outstanding manifesto about our inherently evil human nature.
