| The first monograph on this provocative German photographer
In his recent work Daniel Josefsohn (1961–2016) has man­aged to maintain the precarious balancing act be­tween provocation and humor, between irony and political incitement with such skill that he is able to generate both a sense of discomfort and adoration among viewers. His photographs challenge our cus­tomary visual expectations and seem to effortlessly maneuver between art and commerce. After the leg­endary Miststück campaign that he created for the MTV music channel in the nineties, Josefsohn worked for numerous magazines and from 2010 on­ward his photographs defined the publicity cam­paigns of the Volksbühne in Berlin. After suffering a stroke in 2012, he worked with his partner Karin Müller to document the before and after in a photo column for the ZEITmagazin—which reflected the contrasts between levity and gravity, the debased and the beautiful. In addition to a selection of the best photographs of the column, this volume presents a cross-section of his entire work.
