The brick works as concept, as in building block, module, part. It is also an artificial construction invented at the dawn of civilization, which latterly strongly influenced the course of development of human reasoning. It is a simple model of how one can understand the formerly continuous fabric of the universe by cutting it into well-formed units and reconstructing it. This book is an attempt to employ this principle.
Büro Für Kunst proposed the undertaking of a brick related photo project on behalf of the Wienerberger Contemporary Photography Collection in 2014. The work was recipient of the inaugural Robert Capa Photography Grand Prize, shortlisted for Leopold Bloom Art Award in 2015, shortlisted among five outstanding projects of Le Bal Award for Young Artists with the ADAGP and it was winner of Conscientious Portfolio Competition in 2016.
