The Walter Benjamin and Albert S. Project

The Walter Benjamin and Albert S. Project, by Maurice Bogaert, is a book about the parallel lives of Walter Benjamin and Albert Speer, and the author’s quest to bring their histories together. The book’s concept is a graphic novel and thus the perfect book to read on a train. Image sequences are placed as a cinematographic experience in that images of doors that are open indicate a new space of the architecture’s story. A sequence of mountains shows that the story is going to another place. A repetitive image of a telephone that brings a conversation alive. On the cover a door is open, to metaphorically pull the readers into the cinematographic experience. The light of the story is printed, in two layers of silver ink on black paper.
