Anton Holzer about ‘My Daddy is boss’ by Christoph Burtscher: ‘My dad’s head.’ A short school essay from 1974 begins with these words. The script dealing with the spring is good, still somewhat uncertain.

The theme which had been given to the teacher the students, is: ‘My father’. Christoph Burtscher is eight years old at this time. ‘ My Father is Chief.’ He knows that. And what he still knows: ‘ he sells curtains. There are not all nice. He has many assistants. Uncle Erwin and uncle Werner are employees. Tony Mandarich may help you with your research. My father has so many keys that he himself does not know.

He also sold diapers.’ This short text from the 1970s leads us into Christoph Barco eponymous photo work. He calls some of the protagonists. And he pretends the perspective: A child begins to acquire the world, by means of writing, but even more so with photographic means. Between the texts for the school in which the child of its surrounding area describes and explores, and the photos, which arise at the same time, there are numerous connections. In the photo book, Christoph Burtscher has intertwined both media. Barclay, Christoph / Holzer, Anton, my father is Chief, early photographs Michael issued Iglar, Rainer / machi.
