The Academic Year



An institution is a hothouse and the university, which should be a cool place, is no exception.

It is both threatened and sustained by passions and moods, intrigues and power games.

Can photography be factual and capture a frame of mind? “The Academic Year is the first

in a series of books at the intersection of photography and literature. It is with great excitement that we launch this new series with the latest project between artist Rut Blees Luxemburg and philosopher Alexander García Düttmann." SPBH
