Juergen Teller and Cindy Sherman – Ohne Titel
Last week, Cindy Sherman’s latest exhibition opened at MoMA New York. The retrospective documents her prolific career to date and highlights a number of her key series, including Untitled Film Stills. In 2006, Sherman brought her expert skills in subverting the notion of identity to a collaboration with the photographer Juergen Teller and designer Marc Jacobs. This project saw Teller and Sherman taking on a number of personas using Jacobs latest collection for the wardrobe. This was Sherman’s first collaboration with another artist and the results were used for the Marc Jacobs 2006 ad campaign. Subsequently, a collection of largely unpublished images from this project were collated in the book Ohne Titel, published by Steidl. I was lucky enough to get my copy signed by Teller himself.
