Since starting out as a photographer in the mid-1960s, Boris Mikhailov (b. Kharkov, Ukraine, 1938; lives and works in Kharkov and Berlin) has built a wide-ranging and strikingly multifaceted oeuvre. A virtuoso of his art, he has explored a great variety of ways of using the medium to paint a picture of his immediate surroundings that is as unsparing as it is ironic. The book--which accompanies his largest exhibition in Germany to date--brings together a selection of works that includes the experimental pictures of his early years as well as his most recent photographs created in Berlin.

Seen through the eyes of filmmaker David Teboul—who completed a documentary about the artist in 2010—Boris Mikhailov: I’ve Been Here Before offers an overview of Ukrainian photographer Boris Mikhailov’s career. One of the most important artists to have emerged from the former Soviet Union, Mikhailov has for more than thirty years taken photographs that engage with the idea of the individual in the public sphere, as well as the breakup of the Soviet Union and its many human casualties. Extensively illustrated with stills from Teboul’s film, the book also includes transcripts of Mikhailov’s discussions with Teboul, in which he provides insight into both his work and, more generally, the life of an artist in the Soviet Union before and after its fall. This volume brings back into focus Mikhailov’s beautifully crafted and often melancholy body of work which was relatively unknown prior to the Soviet Union’s collapse.

Maquette Braunschweig is Boris Mikhailov's analysis of Germany's political and demographic development. In 2008 he closely followed the production of Aeschylus' The Persians in Braunschweig. The public took part, forming the typical ancient Greek chorus and the production was a symbolic play about war and the documentation of a young democracy. Mikhailov was also a part of the production process and he developed an oeuvre in four acts: "German Portraits", "Shooting", "Bus Stop" and "Home T(h)eatre". In a city where the number of young people and children is constantly decreasing, Mikhailov takes a close look at the weak points and the margins of this community and paints a unique and clairvoyant picture of Germany's future.

The creator of radical and poetic work, Boris Mikhailov focuses his camera on people's everyday life, capturing both the social and historical conditions in the Soviet Union and the changes that occurred after 1989, with the breakdown of order in the Ukraine. In the 1970s, Mikhailov started to photograph "life the way it is." He dealt with the "city without a main street," the anti-heroic, the incidental, the private sphere and leisure time in the Soviet Union. His book Case History, a heart-wrenching monument to the forgotten losers of system change, documented the plight of the homeless in the Ukraine after the collapse of the Soviet Union. The critical aspects of his photographs, provocative performances and combinations of words and images make Mikhailov a conceptual documentary artist who creates moving images of the wounded human soul--simultaneously full of humor and seriousness. This book is dedicated to Mikhailov's entire oeuvre. Essays on individual works and periods run together with a flow of images to underline his different photographic techniques and to deepen our understanding of a rich work that intentionally seems unspectacular. Created in collaboration with Fotomuseum Winterthur.

Rarely has anyone photographed reality in such an unprettified way as Boris Mikhailov. He captures the unadorned and the natural; in pictures devoid of aesthetic exhaltation, he concentrates on people and their living conditions. On his journeys through Russia, Germany and his Ukrainian homeland, Mikhailov has equally observed the poor, the well-to-do, the outcasts and the homeless. "Look at Me, I Look at Water" was composed in 1999 at the suggestion of the Heiner Mller-Society when Boris Mikhailov's name was found in one of Heiner Mller's notebooks. With this book Mikhailov is continuing, thematically and conceptionally, what he began with his artist's book "Unfinished Dissertation" in 1985. The photographs are accompanied by handwritten Russian commentaries, which together give the impression of a private album which narrates stories from a chapter in the artist's life.

A signed, limited edition of Boris Mikhailov's portrait of contemporary Eastern and Western Europe In this hefty photobook, published in an edition of 500 copies, the celebrated Ukrainian photographer Boris Mikhailov (born 1938) mixes earlier pictures with photographs from 2017 that were taken in a Soviet-era crematorium in Kyiv. Other settings featured here include the crumbling corners of East and West European cities, private bedrooms and public hospitals, gardens and bars. Across more than 200 photographic diptychs, Mikhailov draws connections between histories and technologies, while playfully stressing formal correlations between motifs. Where earlier artist's books by Mikhailov, such as Case History and Unfinished Dissertation, explored life on Ukrainian streets or under Soviet rule, now, with Temptation of Life, he offers a more philosophical account of the everyday, of the perishability of all flesh, on sex, life and death.

For the acclaimed photographer Boris Mikhailov (born 1938), a society's most significant paradigm shifts are often most clearly perceived in the smallest of everyday transactions. For example, in a caf� or restaurant in the Soviet-era Ukraine, a waiter would have offered you 'tea or coffee?'. Today, two decades after the fall of the Soviet bloc and the ascent of western capitalism, it's 'tea, coffee, cappuccino?'. In his latest body of work, Mikhailov addresses this shift by focusing on his hometown of Charkow, in the north east of the Ukraine. Here, the consumerist invasion of western capitalism is everywhere apparent in huge, colourful advertising banners and billboards, but the promises of the so-called Orange Revolution seem to have been fulfilled for only a few. Mikhailov writes that 'only when one sees misery in a picture, does one begin to notice it in the street', and throughout the 200-plus photographs in this volume, he takes pains to neither dramatize nor ameliorate the conditions of life in Charkow; and so his tough-minded pictures present a bleak but rigorously honest portrait of the Ukraine and its inhabitants.
