Publisher's Description
For years, Andreas Züst, the late photographer, meteorologist, publisher, collector, and patron of the arts, took photographs of roundabouts in Europe, America, and Asia. Almost everything can manifest itself in the center of a roundabout-advertisements for local businesses, historical allegories, artworks, craft, monuments to ruling ideologies and religions-endowing this non-place with a meaning that we only casually glimpse while driving by, as though man could not abide a void. These wry photographs, with their delight in the absurd, are a prime example of an anthropology of everyday and popular culture, inviting the reader to reflect on cultural and social differences, vernacular culture, and man's horror of the void. At the time of his premature death, Züst was preparing the publication of this book.
