About the book

Seamlessly navigating between image and anecdotes, I Know Not These My Hands, speaks of the human aspects of love, loss and identity.

In their 5th Volume the artists Sarah Cooper and Nina Gorfer scrutinize the ubiquitous traces a troubled history leaves on the human mind. Based on a travel to northwestern Argentina, Cooper & Gorfer investigate questions of identity through interviews and photographic meetings with people from different levels within the Argentinian society and adjacent lands. Reflections on migration, de-colonialization and more recent political turmoil, surface throughout the book’s notes and dialogues and manifest in the narrative and poetic imagery so indicative of Cooper and Gorfer’s work.
