In his latest work, photographer Karl Lagerfeld addresses and explores the notion of Form. In doing so, he takes on the freedom to liberate–in the Beuysian sense–the very concept of art itself, including its implications regarding man’s physicality. The strictly conceived and carried-out study Akstrakt consists of only 13 plates, and formally takes up where the Bauhaus left off. The design and production of the book follow rigorously exact rules: the photographs, varnish-sealed in the costly and painstaking tritone process, were printed on Phoenixmotion-Xantur paper. The book block was laid out as a Japanese brochure, encased in a cloth binding with a two-color brass-stamped plate.
