Description: Anonyme Skulpturen. Eine Typologie technischer Bauten. 108 l. With 194 black and white illustrations after photographs on plates. 28,5 x 22,5 cm. Navy blue original cloth with illustrated dust jacket (small 1/2 cm tear verso). Düsseldorf, Art-Press Verlag, 1970. First edition. Parr and Badger. The Photobook. vol. II. p. 266. 802 Photobooks. p. 518. Open Book. pp. 258-9. Roth. Book of 101 Books. "The extensive series that the Bechers later made for Schirmer/Mosel and MIT Press, while preserving the aesthetic rigour of their earlier work, emphasizes the documentary aspect, and has a particular archival, historical value. Anonyme Skulpturen, though it hardly neglects the informational importance of their practice, seems much more about making an aesthetic statement and establishing the artists' position in late twentieth-century art. All their books are polemical, but this represents their primary artistic credo. For those who are more interested in the Bechers as artists than as industrial archaeologists, this is the one to have on one's shelf." (Parr-Badger p. 266). - Fresh and well preserved copy.
