Book review

Cultural Writing. Art. Whereas the mountains in Swiss art have always occupied a central position in national iconographyand, in their powerfulness and unalterability, have been regarded as a constantly recurring symbol of the original Helvetian character, they have recently figured increasingly as a metaphoric territory in which the contradictions in the behaviour of post-industrial man towards nature and the landscape are shown in a particularly conspicuous and suspense-filled fashion. In his "Snow Management" photographs, Jules Spinatsch has created an impressive document of the post-modern development of the Alps into a leisure theme park. Cecile Wick, on the other hand, took a different course, tracing the remains of sublimity and mystery that the mountains have retained as a myth robbed of its magic. The combination of pathos and absurdity, a longing for nature and remoteness from reality, is the basis of Nicolas Faure's ironic visual criticism.
