Back to the Future

Riding the Slide Carousel

The analogue slide technique is on the verge of extinction. From 2015 to 2018, the restorers at the Hamburger Kunsthalle thus conducted a research project dedicated to the urgent preservation of the medium and the forward-looking conservation of contemporary works.

Supplemented with comparative curatorial and art-historical positions, this highly topical volume presents the results and research contributions and hence lays the foundations necessary for future restoration-related examination of medial, photographic, and slide-based artworks.

Featuring the work (from the late 1960s to present) of 18 international artists including: Anthony McCall, Lothar Baumgarten, Michael Snow, Nan Goldin, and Fischli/Weiss.
