ALPINE SIGNALS Twentysix Cell Towers in the Engadin

€23.80 (excl. VAT)

“Alpine Signals” is an unusual portrait of the Alps, based on twentysix cell towers in the Engadin, a high valley in the south east part of Switzerland. The artist Thomas Kneubühler challenges the romantic image of the Alps with the non-lieux of the mountain world, and goes to places that are usually not a destination. “Alpine Signals” touches on important issues, such as our relationship with nature and landscape asking: how much data do we need, even in the remote mountain world?

The photographs are accompanied by two texts. The author Romana Ganzoni, who lives in the Engadin, invites us on a breathtaking antenna hike, and debunks a number of Alpine clichés in the process. The Canadian writer Rebecca Duclos visits the Alps in a dream. In her hybrid text, she reflects on the paradox of images and encounters which are at once sublime and banal.
