Dirk Alvermann: Keine Experimente. Bilder zum Grundgesetz [No Experiments. Pictures of Basic Law]. Eulenspiegel Verlag, Berlin, 1961. Unpaged. Octavo (8 x 5.5 in./20.5 x 14.5 cm). First edition. Hardbound. Photo-illustrated boards. No jacket as issued. Black-and-white reproductions. Publisher's bookmark laid in.



Alvermann passed away on September 3. He is best known for his phenomenal 1960 book Algerien, which was reproduced in facsimile in Martin Parr's Protest Box, published by Steidl.
Keine Experimente, his scarce second book has the same accessible, pocket-book format--to be passed from hand to hand like a political manifesto. In it, Alvermann's photographs, shot between 1956 and 1961 are juxtaposed withe the texts of the first 9 articles of the Basic Law of the Federal Republic of Germany. The book is a brilliant work of agitprop, the title echoing newly elected Chancellor Konrad Adenauer's "Keine Experimente" (No Experiments) slogan, which symbolized a more no-nonsense approach focused on free-market economic policy and rapid growth. While it is a savage critique of consumerism, Keine Experimente also shows Germans constantly shadowed by reminders of the recent past.

Near Fine+/Fine-; small nicks to base of spine and rear fore-edge.
