Scrapbooks 1969-1985

In an ensemble, Walter Pfeiffer’s scrapbooks create a unique Wunderkammer. Pfeiffer’s Polaroid’s and photographs interchange with miscellaneous objects – newspaper clippings, postcards, packaging, tickets – and brief punning notes.

Pfeiffer assembles this archive into a large collage full of surprising references and comparisons that are both a visual diary and the creative foundation for his artistic work. Pfeiffer’s scrapbooks sharply reveal his keen view of Eros, Zeitgeist and popular culture, along with his disrespectful humor as well as his appreciation for the poetry in the mundane and banal. Offering a view into Pfeiffer’s meandering and playful universe, they are a contemporary document that captures the Zeitgeist of the 1970s and 1980s with an ephemeral elegance.

Is thought finite? Is physical music a fetish? Is reality fictional? What is the most elegant way to float between corporeal and ethereal forms?

  • Dev Hynes Collaborates with OAMC and Adidas on a Capsule Collection

    Under the music moniker Blood Orange, Devonté Hynes has spent the last decade softening the strident ego of mainstream pop with the wistful jazz and new wave tones, as well as musings on identity, belonging, and vulnerability, on albums such as Cupid Deluxe or Negro Swan. Singer, songwriter, producer, and director Hynes, who goes by Dev, brings his solitary sensibility to his other projects, too – whether scoring films and fashion shows, collaboration with visual artists, or, more recently, starring as the face of a capsule collaboration between adidas and OAMC, a menswear label founded by Luke Meier and Arnaud Faeh in 2013.More
