NOMADICauthor Michael Heilgemeir, publisher Edition Taube, 1° edition, 292 pp., size 27 × 20 cm, 2013

The Nomadic Studio is an enquiry into the role of the artist studio within processes of re–development in cities today, and portrays the spirit of an artists’ commune working in temporary urban sites. Operating as case study, this photographic perspective encompasses a set of vignettes, reflections, facts and fantasies extracted from the lifeworld of a transitional artist led community and its 18 months in creative habitation of a complex of defunct council premises in Bermondsey, South London.

Including texts and interviews with contributors Mike Nelson, Jonathan Harvey, Ron Henocq and Fran Cottell.
