Safe & Sound Deluxe Edition

Alona Rodeh’s Safe & Sound Deluxe Edition looks into the past and present of various audiovisual methods of safety and security, and their adaptations into popular and subcultural aesthetics, from early modern times up to our days. The Safe & Sound Deluxe Edition illustrated text booklet consists of essays by Shachar Atwan, Fabrizio Gallanti, and Hillel Schwartz, tackling in different manners, respectively, the history of high-visibility clothing, fire regulations in architecture, and the phenomenon of acoustic alarms as seen from a neurologic, sociologic and cultural perspective. The Safe & Sound Deluxe Edition double-sided poster collection set includes 12 staged photographs realized and paired by Rodeh as a visual complement and counterpoint to the essays.

This Publication is made possible with the support of the Israel State Lottery Council for Culture and the Arts, and is published on the occasion of Alona Rodeh’s solo exhibition at Grimmuseum, Berlin, September 2015.
