The individual publications in the series of five books titled Day X feature a 24-hour collaboration between a writer and a photographer each. Between 2016 and 2019, the five artist duos were invited to produce two parallel artistic interpretations of the one day they spent together.
Without placing a particular focus on the issues facing Europe at the time, each project nonetheless provides a snapshot of the prevailing mood in the various corners of this continent, as perceived by the artists on their chosen date.
The publications feature varied themes and approaches – a road trip, a portrait of a German village, and daytime and nighttime walking or travelling through both natural and urban habitats. They combine photography and text on an equal footing, with the images and text connected, yet independent, weaving in and out of sync.
Edited by Laura Braun and Eva Eicker, Day X was born out of an intention to initiate the artists’ personal projects and ideas that were easily realisable due to the limitations imposed by the format, and to encourage collaboration between the disciplines of photography and writing.
