"From the first moment, almost all of his appearances were catastrophic ... Catastrophe is his way of operating, and his main instrument of government." Adi Ophir. Violence, calamity and the absurdity of war are widely represented in The Archive of Modern Conflict, the world's largest photographic collection of its kind. In their latest work, Holy Bible, Adam Broomberg and Oliver Chanarin have explored this archive guided by the fundamental doctrine of the philosopher Adi Orphir, by which he affirms that God reveals himself mainly through catastrophes and that the power structures that appear in the Bibles are related to those of current systems of government. The format of the Holy Bible by Broomberg and Chanarin mimics both the structure and the physical format of the King James Version. To make the selection of images, the artists have been guided by fragments of the original text, thus addressing issues related to authorship, and the tacit criteria used to establish sufficient proof of the conflict. Inspired in part by the annotations and images that Bertolt Brecht added to his own personal bible, Broomberg and Chanarin's publication questions the cliches that come into play when visually depicting the conflict.
