Hultsbruk ready-maids is a book of new photographs by the Swedish artist Sara Preibsch. Preibsch’s photographs are an oblique record of a collection of 1950’s German magazine covers, which she discovered stuck to a wall of the house where her Austrian/German grandparents lived after they emigrated to Sweden in the late 1940’s. Presented here in the form of 12 bound postcards, these works explore the restless ferment of a decaying post war archive, a culture uprooted by the tremble of new ideas. By cropping and looking awry, Preibsch successfully intervenes in the production of new meaning, by revealing to us contemporary narration's hidden deep within this collection of apparently uncritical photographs. To further explore the potential for new stories, the artist has also invited 12 authors to respond to these images in the form of a short text. The texts, photographs and form of this book present us with a diversity of concerns, inviting us to take part in the future arrangements and content of these juxtapositions. What finally constitutes this work is an array of encounters, which are far from being completed. Includes work by the authors: Howard Caygill, Laura Cull, Marie-Louise Ekman, Nicoleta Esinencu, Andrew Fisher, Jean-Baptiste Joly, Boyan Manchev, Eveline Preibsch, Sara Preibsch, Fredrik Quistbergh, Tilman Rammstedt, Gordon Shrigley and Françoise Vergès. 10.5 x 14.5 cm, 12 pages, 12 full colour images.
