Atem is a self-published book, printed in a edition of 150 on a risograph in the artists studio in Berlin, Germany.

The book is a combination of found images and the artists´photography and it documents an imagined performance by following the bodily positions recommended for breathing exercises in an old German dictionary. The oddity of the illustrations showing people distorting in the search for physical comfort feels like a metaphor for the contemporary practices we immerse ourselves in to find ease and reach a state of well-being in a world we’ve built for ourselves, but feels foreign.
