Automagic is a book-object by Dutch visual artist Anouk Kruithof (b. 1981, Dordrecht, the Netherlands), which contains images drawn from her “automagic archive,” taken with iPhones and small digital cameras over the past twelve years. The book does not seek to present a clear narrative, which is created rather by the viewer’s own memories and associations provoked by the nine visual stories presented in nine different books, joined together with a book of text in a transparent acrylic glass box. Automagic is an exploration of an image archive transformed by means of analog photomontages, screenshots, reproductions, editing, and the addition of text. The diversity of topics and concepts in each book is highlighted by the use of different papers, which make a multi-layered sculpture of this book-object. It demonstrates the resourcefulness, the adventurousness, the sheer infinity of possibilities of the medium of photography, and shows how the computer and the human mind can act as processors of ways of looking look at our world.

AUTOMAGIC is a publishing collaboration between RM and stresspress.biz

RM is one of Spain and Latin America’s most prestigious publishers of art books. Focusing principally on photography, contemporary art, and little-known literary treasures or “rarities,” RM is known for the meticulous care it lavishes on each one of its titles, in terms of content, design and production details. Stresspress.biz is the publishing platform of Dutch artist Anouk Kruithof and is located in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. In the future stresspress.biz will publish concept-oriented books, where other authors are involved next to Kruithof’s own artist-books.

Please note that this book was produced using a manual process and as such, minor imperfections may appear. And it is exactly this quality that makes the book unique and gives it that automagical final touch.

AUTOMAGIC is made possible thanks to the generous support of Mondriaan Fonds and all the big-hearted backers of AUTOMAGIC’s successful Kickstarter campaign.
