Igor Chepikov - M.O.C.K.B.A. Heldenstadt

Igor Chepikov is an artist born in Moscow who lives in Cologne for more than 20 years and works as an architect, painter and photographer. "Heldenstadt" reveals a love-hate relationship with the source he comes from, spelled M.O.C.K.B.A. A leitmotif in grey, continuing all the way, through the book, seeming to say: "Do Not Pass". WHITE PRESS experimented with various black and white printing methods. Finally we ended up with a system that is (referring to manufacturer) "not made for halftone reproduction". We RIPed our own and here it is: Printed on paper we choose as an artistic approach to newspaper appearance. Once more: documentary as art. Helge Schlaghecke, White Press
