Der Greif issue 12
Delivered to Stack subscribers in Aug 2019

by Lucy Corkish in September 2019

Der Greif is a photography magazine that specialises in juxtaposing images, taking them out of their original context to make the viewer see them afresh. This issue was guest edited by the artists Broomberg & Chanarin, and it tackles the politics of censorship, showcasing images that are “too private, too quiet, too violent, too political, too subversive or too explicit to share on social media”.
