To make pure night visible, as Hegel explains in his Doctrine of Being, not only represents an impossibility; pure night also corresponds to pure light, in the sense that both constitute an ever indeterminate view of nothingness. As he maintains: “Only in a particular light — and light is defined through darkness — that is, in dim light, likewise only in a particular darkness — and darkness is defined through light — in illuminated darkness, is there something to be distinguished.” It is precisely this mutual conditionality of light and night that is central to Dominic Büttner’s Dreamscapes. His eerie iamges bring out phenomena that otherwise would have remained invisible.
We are delighted that books from both Park Books and Scheidegger & Spiess made it on the list of the 25 Most Beautiful German Books 2018: Auftritt Appenzell, American Readers at Home, and New Housing in Zurich.
Congratulations to the designers Antje Kolm, Diego Bontognali and Valeria Bonin from Bonbon, Ludovic Balland, and all others who have contributed to this success!
The bookstore Never Stop Reading is located in Zurich's old town, only a few steps from the Kunsthaus, the University, and ETH. The store features a broad range of international publications on architecture, photography, art, and design, as well as a section of general-interest English books. The new spaces can be used for small exhibitions and we'll be hosting a diverse program of book launches, readings, panel discussions . . . We're looking forward to seeing you there!
