Joan Fontcuberta and Pere Formiguera - Dr. Ameisenhaufen's Fauna, European Photography, 1988, Göttingen

 

Softcover, brown wrappers, text in English, except for the introduction (English and German). Scientific Directors: Joan Fontcuberta, Pere Formiguera. Research Assistants: Xavier Bardo, André Gelpke, Sean Golden, Willy Neunzig, Ma. Louise Regard, Jorge Ribalta, Humberto Rivas, Joachim Schmid. Design: Tuna Ciner.

"Joan Fontcuberta and Pere Formiguera, described not as authors but as scientific researchers, have fabricated a seemingly authentic, but outlandish book. Even the subject matter of the photographs has been created by the authors. . .The package is entirely believable; the contents preposterous. . .The ironic and satirical approach employed by Fontcuberta and Formiguera in this mock refutation of Darwin's theories raises serious questions about the nature of scientific methods as well as the veracity of photographic documentation."
