ICI Press publishes books that have been called “rhizomatic verbal-visual webs.” As multi-disciplinary projects, they actualize as much as they analyze the image/text paradigm. Bataille’s Eye (1997) explores Georges Bataille’s novella, Story of the Eye.Benjamin’s Blind Spot (2001) unpacks Walter Benjamin’s difficult concept of aura. Searching for Sebald (2007) looks at W. G. Sebald’s unique method of bringing word and image together and explores the far-reaching impact of his work on the world of art. ICI is currently working on a book that explores Roland Barthes’ last book, Camera Lucida.
ICI also publishes pamphlets, ethnographic studies, and limited artist editions/films. Many of our publications are unique, handmade objects that can be viewed in our library. In this portion of our website you’ll fine documents and ephemera linked to our various publications.
