Detailed Product Description
Berlin, Kerber Verlag, 2012, 1st edition. 64 pp, many color photos. Large Format Hardcover in Fine condition.

In 2009, together with a six-person expedition group, the photographer and artist Michael Najjar climbed to the summit of Mount Aconcagua. At 6,962 metres, it is the highest mountain in the world outside the Himalayas. Najjars’s photographic material from the three-week expedition forms the basis for the visual worlds depicted in the “high altitude” cycle of works, which portrays the stock market performance of the world’s most important key indices over the last 20 to 30 years. The virtual number mountains on the stock market charts resublimate themselves in the materiality and solidity of the Argentinian mountain ranges – they symbolize the thin line between reality and simulation.
 
For “High Altitude“ (2008 - 2010) he climbed Mount Aconcagua whose 6,962 meters (22,841 feet) make it the highest mountain on the planet outside of Asia. In the Andes Najjar photographed mountain ridges whose petrified zigzag curves served him as a representation of the monumentality of financial markets. He patterned the shots he took on the expedition rigorously on the fluctuations of international stock exchange indices. What he shows are the ups and downs of the markets, and how market reality and simulation are so intertwined as to be almost indistinguishable. What we see are the movements of the tectonic plates of the global economy over the past twenty to thirty years in whose course new peaks are thrown up and earthquakes and erosion are inevitable. Najjar shows the sublime in an age when information technology has become all-powerful.
 
Large format hardcover. Extra postage for priority mail or international mail.
