Publisher's Description

New York–based Polish conceptual artist Piotr Uklanski’s (b. 1968) book The Nazis (EPF,1999) has long been out of print and is highly coveted to this day. While The Nazis showed movie stills of actors playing Nazis in various Hollywood films, Uklanski’s current publication, Real Nazis, juxtaposes film images with the real thing—Nazi party bigwigs, decorated “war heroes” and war criminals. Painstakingly culled from a variety of archives and featuring over 200 images, Uklanski superimposes fact on fiction to reveal the uncanny resemblance between the play-acted and real-life exponents of evil. Who are the “real” Nazis in this picture puzzle? This play of mirrors is a radical commentary on our alarming present condition, in which the lines between populist and fascistic politics are increasingly blurring. Uklanski’s Real Nazis is premiering at dOCUMENT (14), Kassel (2017). He has exhibited at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, NY; Guggenheim Museum, NY; P.S.1 MoMA, NY; Walker Art Center, MN; Whitney Biennial (2010) among others.
