Unfortunately, the exhibition has already ended, but there is still a modest publication that accompanied this show at the Centre Pompidou, also including a selection of 30 or so original photographs of the paranormal phenomena that have always amused and fascinated the artist couple, arriving from the collection of the German ‘Institut für Grenzgebiete der Psychologie und Psychohygiene’, based in Freiburg.

In this book, with introduction texts by Clément Chéroux and Andreas Fischer, you can furthermore find some of Bernhard Blume’s personal thoughts on photography, the subversive nature of levitation and capturing mysterious appearances.

The book, co-published by Centre Pompidou and Xavier Barral, is still available online at Editions Xavier Barral.
