Adrian Williams. The Curve focuses on the sunset, the moment between day and night structuring our days into a before and an after. Our baring witness to the sunset relies on the specific constellation of time and place, events bound to the trajectory of the sun. The book is composed of three reflections on this space of transition as the sun slips beyond our line of sight. The horizon, the line between earth and sky becomes a surface for projection, for form in the absence of it, and although the sun sets every day, its movement familiar and predictable, it is nevertheless spectacular. The Curve is based on a performance of the same name by the U.S. artist Adrian Williams, realized in 2019 with six musicians at Preußenstadion home of the third-division soccer team SC Preußen Münster. At sunset, the stadium became the setting for an acoustic intervention of light and sound. The book extends the performance beyond its original venue with Münster’s Preußenstadion as its starting point. The three authors introduce encounters at dusk from different perspectives and tell stories linked to the course of the sun. Merle Radtke shares memories of sunsets seen and the art historical relationships to the natural spectacle we award them. From a rooftop in Washington, D.C., Matthathias Schwartz reenacts The Curve, listening to recordings from the stadium in Münster, at another place and time. Adrian Williams writes through the piece of the piece, voicing a possibility for the work’s intent. These three texts are wound between Williams’ photographs of sunsets at dusk: light on clouds, a reflection in a window, the glow behind a mountain. These images are always evidence of an instance recorded, of having been present at a time and place, for the meeting of the sun at the horizon.

Conceived in close collaboration with Shimabuku as an extension of his exhibition The 165-metre Mermaid and Other Stories at Villa Paloma in 2021, this new publication tells of the poetic actions conducted during his travels, between his native Japan and Monaco via Brazil, Australia, and many other lands. The artist’s texts form the narrative thread of a subsequent ensemble of installations, films, sculptures and photographs made over the last thirty years. Three essays never published before have been written for the occasion by art critics and curators Nicolas Bourriaud and Claire Le Restif as well artist Rirkrit Tiravanija. As an introduction, Célia Bernasconi, curator of the exhibition, traces Shimabuku’s artistic adventures through a logbook, therefore, confronting the epidemic context. Through the logbook, she reviews productions made by Shimabuku in Monaco in 2021, amongst which the totemic work Erect is featured on the cover of the book. Language: English, French Size: 250 x 178 mm Pages: 300 Illustrations: Color Format: Softcover ISBN: 978-3-96436-031-1 Editor: Célia Bernasconi, Shimabuku Texts: Célia Bernasconi, Nicolas Bourriaud, Claire le Restif, Rirkrit Tiravanija Designer: Studio Manuel Raeder Co-publisher: Nouveau Musée National de Monaco

Morceaux choisis is the first seminal overview of Saâdane Afif’s artistic practices. The publication features 48 exhibitions or performances organized in 28 separate sections, covering a period of 14 years. Starting with Melancholic Beat at Museum Folkwang, Essen in 2004 and leading up to the recent exhibition Musiques pour tuyauterie, at mor charpentier, Paris in 2018, the monograph considers the format of the exhibition as Saâdane Afif’s medium, through which his work takes form and can be read. Each one of the figuring exhibitions form an individual booklet: the pages with full color reproductions of the individual works and installation views are inserted within four additional pages providing the exhibition’s title, description, details and captions. These 28 booklets form the body of the publication. The exhibition texts have been written by Lily Matras and Yasmine d’O. They are accompanied by an interview of Saâdane Afif by Lili Reynaud-Dewar, two critical texts by Zoë Gray and Jörn Schafaff, an index of the exhibited works and an index of Afif ’s released books and records.

The circus is a drama that extends its own means, and the metaphor of its name (itself clowning around with the word) is widespread across the art industry, financial world, and, of course, anything to do with performance. For four years during the mid-aughts, photographer, video and film artist Ieva Epnere immersed herself in the life of the Riga Circus – a type of traditional circus that cherishes the respectful use of animals, operating on a circus-family model (skills are passed down through generations to produce family units that travel and live on the road), and the big top tent (the landmark interior of one of the oldest circus structures, built for this purpose in Europe since 1888) as a performance space. This publication, that was developed during Ieva Epnere’s fellowship with the Artists-in-Berlin Program of the DAAD, symbolically marks four stages of her single, larger work. Fine-tuned digital color shots, a collection of black-and-white 35 mm film prints showing action at the Riga Circus, followed by a burst of color shots and black and white photos taken on a film camera, to end with a set of intimate black-and-white portraits of the performers. Whereas the conversion of circus into text might to some degree be a violation of the true nature of its subject, Ieva Epnere’s book – with the help of elephants, clowns, all the “freakery,” and her kaleidoscopic peek into the machinery that makes performances in the arena possible – itself stands as an adventurous act of reinvention.

Over a thousand years ago a form of material code emerged among the Andes mountains. By means of knotted ropes, called ‘quipus’, numbers and words were enacted. This publication The Andean Information Age knots together a universe of stories related to the quipu system, the history of its ongoing decipherment, and the disruption that this sensorial code may be able to trigger in our present.

The motifs produced during time-intensive dyeing processes – which uses indigo, urine, and extracts of natural waste materials – are neither conventional fabric nor lace patterns, and they have only a distant relationship to batik painting. Yet, they are simulations and portraits of both. Pattern Nor Painting starts in a batik Workshop in Bantul, Indonesia where an artist reconnects with her blank canvas and the batik techniques she learned from an artist in Serekunda, the Gambia many years ago. As documented in this publication Van Hoorebeke’s installations and performances deftly combine unique textiles and ceramics with production-chain goods, ranging from car parts to strawberry jam. Engaging with ages-old traditions of batik production for present-day communities and settings, her work embodies ancient craft, story-telling, time, female thinking, and above all, a connection to the natural world.

In 2011, the Contemporary Art Club (CAC) in cooperation with the Kunsthistorisches Museum Wien (KHM, Museum of Fine Arts Vienna), organised an exhibition series at the Theseustemple, a classicist building constructed at the beginning of the 19th century in Vienna’s Volksgarten. The project was launched with an exhibition by Andy Hope 1930, followed by Kitty Kraus and André Butzer. The series concluded with a dialogue between Lucy McKenzie and Ian Hamilton Finley, a complex and diverse group of young contemporary artists. This publication aims at documenting this experiment. Accordingly, also the concept to this exhibition series, the basis for the discussion initiated by CAC with the participants, will be published.

Stickers presents itself as a genre of artist books on its own. The book demonstrates Anna M. Pasco Bolta’s works, including various techniques, within the genre of stickers, and explores the idea how objects can exist in two states: as objects themselves, and as their images. Every copy of the edition is unique and overflowing with stickers waiting to be stuck on. The stickers act as a medium for displaying all content: artwork, text, sponsor logos, ISBN and barcodes, giving a certain autonomy to the images. Thus, Stickers is a changing and pluralistic platform that allows an approach from the audiences individual point of view to Pasco’s work and emphasizes the importance of action and interaction for the perception of reality.

Sandra Mujinga’s recent exhibition at Bergen Kunsthall presented a large-scale video installation together with a selection of sculptural works and photographs. Drawing on Afro-futurist strategies, the exhibition investigated concepts of invisibility as survival strategies, both as a speculative gaze at the future and in relation to the political reality of our time. The exhibition was Mujinga’s largest solo-presentation to date and will also be on view at Vleeshal, Middelburg, 20.9 – 13.12.2020. This book includes a specially produced visual essay, conceived as an animation in book form. The images are stills from footage captured of an elephant outside of Johannesburg, digitally treated and presented as a series of close-ups of the elephant’s skin.

DISCULPE. On bus travel, the cycle of gifting and counter-gifting and a quest for meaning. During their performances travelling on the city busses of Medellín and Bogotá, the hawkers locally known as “vendedores ambulantes” dish out compliments and pleasantries to their audience, as well as excessive apologies and gratitude. As these busses are flagged down by prospective travellers along the route, they face the crowd with all of their spectators already conveniently seated in front-facing rows. The vendors practice something that may be loosely described as “rebusque”, or “the quest for what makes a life”. What this boils down to is making money with whatever is readily available: chocolate bars, ballpoint pens, music or stories. The German-Colombian artist Jan Lotter Benavides has collected 65 such scenes in his unpretentiously laid out, heartfelt small-format book. Titled DISCULPE, it revolves around his clear and knowledgeable transcripts of recordings he made secretly while in Colombia on a travel scholarship from Hessische Kulturstiftung, the Cultural Foundation of the State of Hesse (Germany). It quickly becomes clear that the “vendedores” provide more than just a show, and that the audience gives them more than just small change; in fact, it is about much more than surplus value. In the ethos becoming apparent here we begin to witness a cycle of gifting and counter-gifting that marks the entire practice out as an act of existence rather than one of subsistence. Life is remembered, imagined and narrated as something that is by necessity shared. The bus is then turned into a theatre of a common symbolic space, and it is on this stage that something akin to catharsis becomes possible.

This publication documents the exhibition “Ne voulais prendre, ni forme, ni chair, ni matière” by Daniel Steegmann Mangrané at the Institut d'Art Contemporain de Villeurbanne, France in 2019. The catalogue includes first translations into French of the poems of Stela do Patrocínio, a Brazilian outsider poet who has longly inspired the artist in his research. Daniel Steegmann Mangrané has created a polymorphous work (drawing, sculpture, film, installations, etc.). His arrival in Brazil in 2004 was motivated by his fascination for the Amazonian forest – as a child he wanted to be a biologist, an entomologist or a botanist – as well as his discovery of Brazilian artists, Lygia Clark and Hélio Oiticica. Beginning at end of the 1950's, for the founders of the Neo-Concrete movement, intuition, subjectivity and public participation managed to reconcile outdated dualisms, starting with the commonly acknowledged opposition between object and subject. Also nourished by anthropology and the poems of Stela do Patrocínio, one of which inspired the title of this exhibition; in his work Daniel Steegmann Mangrané mixes natural and cultural forms. He explores how the living is entangled with its environment, experimenting with space as an area of the sensitive and of relationships. Impregnated by the Amerindian perspective of anthropologist Eduardo Viveiros de Castro – who blurs the distinction between human and non-human – and by the thinking of Philippe Descola who strives to go beyond the Nature-Culture dualism, Daniel Steegmann Mangrané intends to totally and profoundly transform the space of the IAC. And so, the path of the exhibition generates new vanishing lines, changing perspectives which open out towards the exterior. Defined by a sensitive geometry, driven only by rays of natural light that penetrate the gloom, it encourages exploration and groping and fumbling, as if willing visitors to rediscover the essence of the living itself. This path through the exhibition also translates the artist's fascination for the notion of dissolution, a dissolution of the subject which is likely to lead to an awareness of its surroundings.

When Mette Winckelmann moved from Copenhagen K, a city center area, to Copenhagen N, near Nørrebros Runddel, her eyes immediately caught the strip of clothing stores that is a landmark of this specific area. One of them is LAILA UTI, located on Nørrebrogade 82. The lettering on the facade suggested that a B and a K were once part of the store’s name: LAILA UTI used to be LAILA BUTIK. Perhaps, at one point, the store even presented as LAILA UTIK or LAILA BUTI, that is if the letters did not go missing at the same time. Either way, the change of name also changed the store’s character and identity, if only in how its name is pronounced. Loss and letting go is also part of the history of the actual the book. The documented objects fade into each other in digital layers, creating new potentials in the absence of the letter Y (and consequently the colour yellow) in CMYK. LAILA UTI is published on the occasion of the exhibitions with the same name by the artist Mette Winckelmann at Viborg Kunsthal, and LAILA UTI / ULLA TILA at Augustiana in Denmark in 2019-2020. It contains, among other things perspectives on transformations, actions, paintings, clothing, architecture, patchwork, textile, scenography, building materials, concrete, patterns and layers.

I For Idiot functions as an extension of the film Avenida Progreso in the sense that it assembles three different perspectives: a philosopher’s, an ethnologist’s and a film theorist’s, and juxtaposes these with some of the external layers of reality that have in one way or another informed the film. The purpose of this exercise, is to further consider the potential of dialectic time as a tool for collapsing linear narratives and analyzing the relation between speed, history and the distribution of knowledge in information based societies. The book was published on the occasion of the exhibition Avenida Progreso by Mauricio Gullién at the MMK Museum für Moderne Kunst, Zollamt, Frankfurt am Main (2012).

We are almost constantly surrounded by architecture, but we barely perceive it. Yet it has a major impact on our thought and actions – sometimes obviously, but usually unconsciously. The Colombian artist Gabriel Sierra is interested in precisely this psycho­logical dimension of architecture. He aims to create an experiment that explores the intricate relation in between reality and perception. After all, built spaces are repositories for ideas, fears, and convictions; they are full of ambitions, traces, and future experiences, and possess multiple layers of time. Hardly any other experience demonstrates this as strikingly as déjà-vu, when we witness a moment as if it had already occurred. During a moment of déjà-vu, the present is transported backward in time; in it, the past, the future, and the present merge into a magical second that is both euphoric and unsettling. This publication has been published on the occasion of Sierra’s exhibition, Before Present, at Kunsthalle Zürich, that is dedicated to this unfathomable and uncanny Before Present.

This book is printed on the occasion of Haegue Yang’s nine-month presentation of VIP’s Union at Kunsthaus Graz. The exhibition unfolded in two phases: Phase I involved furniture, loaned by private individuals, which was widely used throughout the building; Phase II collected and presented the objects in one of the exhibitions spaces, altering their status from (usable) furniture to exhibits. VIP’s Union at Kunsthaus Graz followed mutations of the project at Art Forum Berlin (2001), Arnolfini, Bristol (2011), M HKA – Museum of Contemporary Art Antwerp (2014), Bonner Kunstverein, Bonn (2014), and Leeum, Samsung Museum of Art, Seoul (2015). A genealogy; reference projects; texts by Nav Haq, Katrin Bucher Trantow, and Barbara Steiner; and a conversation with Haegue Yang provide multiple views on the nature and evolution of the project over the years.

Literally caught in between melting and being repurposed, several hundred meters of gutted sheaths are compressed into dense lumps of immaterial distance. The accompanying book consists of ten short new texts around which fragments of communication with the authors have been punctuated by observational photographs and sculptural documentation. Contextualized by both recent and earlier works, the exhibition and book considers sculpture as a medium of storage, transmission and reception.

Final Kadath Fatal is the third and last volume in a series of artist books by Henning Bohl. The title loosely refers to H. P. Lovecraft’s novella The Dream-Quest of Unknown Kadath (1926/27), in which Kadath appears as a mystical place to where the gods have betaken themselves “in the cold waste where no man treads.” The publication accompanies Bohl’s installation of four large-scale murals for the subway embankment wall along Paltaufgasse in Vienna’s 16th district, whose rough-faced, square-dressed stones are reminiscent of imperial architectural gestures like the rusticated facade of Palazzo Medici in Florence. It has been on display since Summer 2016, made possible by KÖR – Kunst im öffentlichen Raum Wien.

The title of this book references a mythical peak where gods dwell ‘in the cold waste where no man treads’ described in H.P.Lovecraft’s ‘The Dream Quest of Unknown Kadath’ (1926/27). Lovecraft’s novel itself drew from William Beckford’s gothic horror ‘Vathek’ (1786), Robert W. Chambers’ ‘The King in Yellow’ (1895) and the novels and short stories of Lord Dunsany. Bohl’s drawings refer to a wide variety of popular and archetypal imagery familiar to him from his adolescence. They incorporate styles learned from, amongst others, Aubrey Beardsely, Métal Hurlant comic books and Blair Reynolds and other graphic artists associated with Pagan Publishing. As with his previous works, these drawings employ modest yet very specific materials.

Neither the book is a publication that arose from Neither the exhibition, curated by Fernanda Brenner in 2017 to inaugurate the Brussels gallery of Mendes Wood DM. Yet Neither the book is not a documentation of Neither the exhibition. Instead a selection of the artists who exhibited have been invited to produce new works for the page that, alongside a fictional history of the gallery’s new European home, written by Oliver Basciano, mingle with a photographic commission from Mauro Restiffe. They, like the exhibition, evoke a space somewhere between moving in and feeling at home, a capturing of a place that was no longer a family abode and not yet a fully functioning commercial gallery. By taking this conscious pause—respecting the distance and the journey of an exhibition from idea to materialization to memory—Neither the book hovers and loops between proposal, scrapbook and diary.

English and Portuguese texts. This book was published on the occasion of the artist’s solo exhibition, Zona de Crepúsculo, at the Iberê Camargo Foundation, Brazil, in 2018, curated by Bernardo José de Souza. The following texts are a rendering, in written form, of monologues included in his performance The Zone, 2015-2018. The artwork consists of an after-hours tour in and around a given exhibition space, where a series of found narratives are performed by the artist. With psychoanalysis and literature as his usual starting points, Pablo Pijnappel’s works are meta-narratives that poetically combine cultural, historical and ancestral identities through the prism of memory. Language always plays a leading role in uniting mental mechanisms and the world, in video installations, texts, or performances that lie at the crossroads between cinema, photography, and fragments of prose.

This publication, in form of a leporello, captures a singular sixty-meter-long (one-hour) drawing by artist Tanaz Modabber. Conceived with the core idea that the piece would shift form, scale, and tone through multiple stages of translation, the work’s latest transition manifests as this artist-annotated publication with accompanying essay by Cassandra Edlefsen Lasch. Activated by varying means, the scroll-like drawing has been read as a score as well as, in this format, the basis for an expanded referential mapping. Along the length of the published piece a collection of images suggests potential relationships between prosody in poetry, music, architecture, and politics in Iran. In 2014 an hour-long video of the meandering drawing was displayed as notation for a prize-winning sound composition performed by Modabber and sound composer Pierre Mourle within the Tokyo Experimental Festival Vol. 9. The visual composition remains open to interpretation in future texts, sounds, and spatial arrangements.

Dissected into five colours in motion – all at once skin, gesture, word, voice – this first trilingual monograph by Elise Florenty and Marcel Türkowsky focuses on five film-projects investigating different layers of consciousness and power relations that blur the modern boundaries between the animate and the inanimate, the verbal and the non-verbal, the dream and the awake state. Each project unfolds minor situations in marginal zones – from Mississippi to the Aegean Sea, Brazil to Japan and Eastern Ukraine – where the human and the nonhuman – an imaginary river, an amazonian parrot, a speaking cactus plant or cannibal electrons – often meet to bring back “social-utopic” experiments and the part of future that seems to have been buried with them. The catalogue was published on the occasion of the exhibition Inter-passion by Elise Florenty and Marcel Türkowsky at Grimmuseum, Berlin (February 4–March 18,2017) with the support of the Cnap and Stiftung Kunstfonds.

She is more interested in the genesis of images and objects and its material traces than in the completed work. That is why the manufacturing process plays a central part in her prints, printing machines, installations, and performances and always remains recognizable as such. The book figures as a sort of retelling in which manhole cover stamp, die-stamping drum, paper, plastic, and aluminium sheet, camping mat, microphone sculpture, dictaphone, sound funnel, and print worm blithely continue their cycles of production.

The publication is a collaborative project bewtween Frac Île-de-France, the Cypriot artist Haris Epaminonda, and the Berlin designers Santiago da Silva and Simon Steinberger. It recounts and translates the experience of the exhibition VOL. XVI, presented at Le Plateau in 2015, for which the artist had created a global environment. Through a series of parallel actions the whole exhibition was connecting the interior and exterior with the presence of an old Japanese man “living” in the exhibition and with two young women dressed in traditional Japanese costumes who were walking in the des Buttes-Chaumont Park in Paris. This book concentrates the different perspectives of the artist’s work, where the idea of travel, of displacement – in time and space – offers a unique spatial experience combined with the cinematographic dimension included in the exhibition. At the same time, are gathered the critical texts of Philippe Artières (Historian and Research Director in CNRS, EHESS), Chris Sharp (Independent art critic), and Aurélie Verdier (Curator in Musée national d’art moderne, MNAM-CCI, Centre Pompidou).

This book is a close collaboration between artist Jorge Méndez Blake, curator Rodrigo Ortiz Monasterio, and designer Santiago da Silva in the mutual interest on unfinished novels, libraries and the connections that can be made between literature and architecture. Não de China (China Boat) takes as a departure point José Juan Tablada’s writings, seeking the missing connections in order to produce a series of encounters and perspectives into his literature. By unraveling Tablada’s oeuvre, imagining his lost or unfinished works, this book attempts to give contemporary interpretations of some of the seminar themes in his work: Orientalism, the relation between literature and visual arts, and the creation of national identity through art and architecture. This book is written in English and Spanish.

In this collection of stories and illustrations, Anna M. Szaflarski examines the subject of violence, in particular as it is experienced through the female body. Beginning with an autobiographical experience, the story triggers a dissociative state that plunges the book in and out of imaginary worlds and associative narrative threads.

By way of word games and schematics, Anna M. Szaflarski searches for the ‘emergent properties’ that materialize between texts. This book compiles the issues from Letters to the Editors: a self-printed black and white bi-weekly journal dedicated to text-based practices, written and distributed by Szaflarski between October 2014 and November 2015. Each issue combined Szaflarski’s texts with contributions from artists, writers, family, friends, librarians, and colleagues, ranging from poetry and fiction to essays and manifestos. As the project progressed the letters came together and the body of LTTE formed: It had arms and legs, perhaps a brain but above all, a heart and a stomach, often aching, rarely satisfied.

Dogs Devouring Dead Horses was a collaboration between the artist Runa Islam and the designer Manuel Raeder subsequent to the exhibition she held at the Museum of Modern Art in New York (Projects 95, 2011). The artist provided Raeder with stills from four films on display: Emergence (2011), This Much Is Uncertain (2009–2010), Magical Consciousness (2010) and The House Belongs to Those Who Inhabit It (2008). And Raeder, according to the introduction by Milovan Farronato, „gave back to Islam a ‘sculpture in print’ that does not just document the exhibition and offer a view of the three newer works on display, but draws upon the concepts underpinning the exhibition and the work of the filmmaker.“

Ana Navas explores the border between design and art. Playfully, she tries to track down the mechanisms of how design affects our consumption of goods and investigate the essence of the possibilities to assimilate art in a context-free environment. The catalogue published on the occasion of the first institutional exhibition by Ana Navas at Galerie der Stadt Sindelfingen continues her artistic research, which deals with phenomena such as memory, translation, interpretation and authorship and documents a wide exchange of images and ideas. A collection of photographs the artist received from friends and acquaintances provides an insight into how her work is influenced and understood by others under the motto ‘I had to think of you’.

Rosetta is one of the most popular restaurants in Mexico City. Since its doors first opened in 2010, it has reinvented what a Mexican restaurant can be: through sincere, ingredient-based cuisine that both revives and challenges tradition; through its commitment to serving local and seasonal produce grown by small-scale, sustainable producers; and through its location and attention to detail, creating a vibrant and welcoming atmosphere. The first book by Elena Reygadas, chef and owner of Rosetta, is more than a cookbook. For one thing, she shares a selection of her recipes from the present and the past. But she also offers a series of reflections on many different topics: from the social and environmental impact of industrialized food, to personal recollections, to the history of little-known Mexican ingredients.

Eamon Ore-Giron’s first artist book pairs paintings from his ongoing Infinite Regress series with original poetry by scholar Edgar Garcia, offering a rich linguistic and visual context for understanding Ore-Giron’s work. Rendered on raw linen, Ore-Giron’s brightly-hued paintings fuse the tradition of Peruvian goldwork with the geometries of hard-edged abstraction. His compositions evoke the cosmos and notions of an ancient global architecture, creating optical play and a multiplicity of planes on the canvas. Garcia has written “poetry thick with” abstraction, exploring the role of the formal and theoretical within Ore Giron’s work through his own research and work exploring the hemispheric literatures and cultures of the Americas. His “Tractatus” examines the apprehensibility of origins in their visual and poetic forms, and traces a contemporary conception of origins in the knot, fold, crushed stone, haunted bone, and constellation of everyday emergencies.

on distance is a volume of photographs by Heinz Peter Knes representing a small selection from his extensive archive of travel photography dating back to 2010. Unlike a conventional approach to a personal travel log the photos and their ordering reflect upon broader cultural themes driven by personal interests, desires, and chance. Knes, in conversation with Julie Ault, ordered the images according to subjective and associative categories influenced by Warburg’s “law of the good neighbor”, Warburg’s principal of library organization based on the exchange and mutual engagement between books placed next to each other, rather than classical groupings such as “fine art” or “photography.” on distance opens up a similar research into the possible languages that emerge within images.

This publication is a continuation of Gabriel Sierras site-specific installation project at the Renaissance Society in 2015. Sierra is intrigued by the language of the spaces in which we live, work, and think. His practice employs a variety of techniques to examine how the human body functions in relation to its environment. The Bogotá-based artist’s first solo show in the United States consisted of a group of constructions to stand in, walk over, or lie down in, and relating abstractly to the idea of inhabiting different moments of space and time. The title of the exhibition changed every hour to frame the specific moment in which the visitor experienced the work.

In 1986, four double-stelae were erected in Berlin as a part of the Marx-Engels-Forum, which display 144 photographs, showing the development of the working class. Commissioned by the state, filmmaker Peter Voigt and photographer Arno Fischer developed a formal translation for Marx’s and Engel’s philosophy of history. In line with their documentational focus, the two artists were concerned with demonstrating the historical situation of the international working class, its grief, and its overcoming. The photographs, compiled from archives worldwide, constitute the foundation of the project. The chosen motifs respond to historical events as well as figures, depict everyday life and illustrate “circumstances”.

More than anything else about architecture, Tobias Engelschall is fascinated by transformation. Between the regularity and randomness of architectural development, the new always emerges from what already exists. Every Zustand—every state of affairs, condition, configuration, every image in this book—attests only to the outcome of transformation. In their juxtaposition, Tobias Engelschall’s “Sehschule” presents what cannot be seen. With its thematic focus and careful selection, this topography includes mostly buildings that likely would never have appeared again in an architectural book after their initial publication. The book shows an exuberant multiplicity of formal languages, where one or another of them may effectively attain a new, unexpected quality. The publication was generously funded by Stiftung Hermann Reemtsma, Hamburg.

Trefferia – a made up word – mixing the words Treff and Cafeteria together. Appropriated from a cafeteria-like meeting place with filter coffee, beer and cold smoke. For Wilhelm Klotzek an ideal place to invite his own works to. Central to this book is Klotzek’s personal relationship with the medium of language. He embeds his body of works of the last ten years around his personal stories – growing up in East Berlin, going through his adolescence in the years of the post-fall-of-the-wall years. In sculpting his memories in dense moving texts that take us into the corners of the broken German past his dark and humorous approach creates a specific aesthetic language that he stretches and bends in various directions. Therefore Klotzek doesn’t only act as a sculptor of words, objects, memories and situations but furthermore also as a performer, display and furniture designer and collaborator when he works with his artist’s colleagues Konrad Mühe or David Polzin.

Can we read an archaeological site through chance operations? Probably a different idea of time would evolve from this methodology. Feathered Changes, Serpent Disappearances explores the tension between indeterminacy and narrative in archaeology and art. On one hand, there is an attempt to record traces from the past in order to build up a coherent picture. On the other, we have a more schizophrenic way of dealing with memory, acknowledging ghosts, double visions, and multiple versions of history.

Kaleidoscopic Eye departs from an argument between André Breton and Roger Caillois. The confrontation arose from their discovery of Mexican jumping beans—beans that make sudden movements and leap into the air. Caillois conjectured that larva or some other animal was making the beans move. Breton rejected his theory, accusing Caillois of being a closed-minded positivist who negated the marvellous and the poetic in his attempt to find a rational explanation. For Breton, absolute or objective chance blurred the borders of rationality, proffering a chaotic and stimulating universe: convulsive beauty. Caillois wrote a letter ending the relationship with Breton, declaring his attempt to reconcile research with beauty. Caillois sought to examine chance, chaos, and the irrational with the goal of finding a pattern similar to the structure of coral. T his structure should combine, in one system, everything that had until then been systematically excluded—a structure capable of taking into consideration all the possible forms of reality. Kaleidoscopic Eye was first published as part of the exhibition Kaleidoscopic Eye, in 2009 at Kunst Halle Sankt Gallen, now republished in its second edition.

The Memory of The Archive: Christoforos Savva in the 1954–1968 Cypriot Press & Literary Periodicals is published on the occasion of the survey exhibition project Untimely on Time: Christoforos Savva (1924–1968), co-organised by the Cyprus Ministry of Education and Culture, Cultural Services and Point Centre for Contemporary Art, Nicosia and presented at the State Gallery of Contemporary Art – SPEL, Nocosia, Cyprus, between 31 January and 31 March 2019. The book is a compilation and an archive of press cuttings, consisting of more than two hundred articles, commentaries, reports, and advertisements that appeared in the mainstream Cypriot press and literary periodicals between 1954 and 1968 and relate to the Christoforos Savva. The press cuttings are treated as objects with a story, a narrative worth telling with the goal of shedding new light on the artist’s life and career.

The publication focuses, in a very precise but also circumscribed manner, on a specific aspect of Christoforos Savva’s work that is beyond the artist’s control: the artwork’s presence in the world. The moment the work leaves the studio and goes into the world is, quite often, when artists themselves find out whether it has sufficient autonomy and strength. In Savva’s case and particularly in the case of such a fragmented photographic archive – and, therefore, so fascinating and suggestive – as the one presented in the book, the glimpses of his work in contact with the world over time silently witness and reflect the transformations of a society. Looking at, often blurred or slightly crooked, amateur photographs is a way to reaffirm that what matters, when one faces the work of Christoforos Savva, is not only or not so much individually looking at each painting, yfasmatography, or relief on its own, but also looking at the world around them.

Started in 1998, the 'Lichtzwang' series consists today of more than 300 watercolors, all on 15 x 21 cm sheets of graph paper. Most works in the series are made up of groups of several watercolors wherein each successive work is a variation of the previous, showing a transformation. The last watercolor usually matches the first one, so that each group forms a loop that could be installed in any order. The process of realization is, however, guided by simple rules (play with the grid on the sheet, each item that appears in the watercolor lasts for three sheets), rules that bind while allowing improvisation and the introduction of a certain randomness in the process. These watercolors have the generic title 'Lichtzwang' (lightduress or lightconstraint) which in turn is the title of a book of poems by Paul Celan.

Makulatur, a German word that derives from lat. maculatura ’something stained’, refers to misprinted paper that is discarded at the beginning of the printing process as use- and worthless. In 2010, the graphic designer Manuel Raeder started to collect and preserve misprinted sheets of all the publications he designed not only for his own publishing house BOM DIA BOA TARDE BOA NOITE but also for fellow artists and institutions. These original waste paper sheets, with different qualities and grammatures, – trails, testy or stains – were combined to a new volume as a compilation of maculae ’stains’. Thus, dissolving the spoiled material from the realm of invisibility and displays it to the public whereby the Makulatur book reveals and reflects on the conventions of a book.

“Invited by Lucie Stahl to respond to her gorgeous and trashy collaged posters, I look back in my diary and am surprised by the number of parallels in our dreams and notations. I’ve never met Lucie Stahl but we live in the same world: oil spills, palm fronds, novelty key chains, sports beverages. Like me, she’s a self-appointed reporter. Stahl’s posters begin with her odd inclination to write down fragments of overheard conversations, ambient thoughts and fleeting anxieties that – once preserved (and obsessively so, under buckets of chemical gloss) function as video-grabs from the deluge of information that we understand, more or less, to comprise consciousness.” (Chris Kraus)

In Lifestyles Andreas Sell combines a diary with photographic documentation, pictures of sculptures and drawings from 2010 to 2015. These excerpts reflect his nomadic-like life, the clearance of his parents’ household and the enterprise of building a holiday house. Andreas Sell’s artistic process reveals a strategic method within the conventions of our capitalist society, which are simultaneously subject to critical analysis. A question discussed since the 1960s is a recurrent theme: Where does the private sphere cross over into the public sphere? Over the last years, Sell worked on the founding and operation of an employment agency, the documentation and sorting of his property, living without a permanent residence and travelling to the Sahara without mission or goal. The book co-constitutes together with the holiday house on the island of Lesbos the making of an art work.

Accompanying the two major neon sculptural installations from that exhibition, The Statisticon Neon and Pizzagate, it is an analysis of the emerging political conditions of late-stage cognitive capitalism, conditions in which the brain and mind exist as the factories of the 21st century. Of particular interest in this analysis is the brain’s neural plasticity, and the role of new technologies in harnessing its potential. Also crucial is the role of art in creating new, distinctive methods, atmospheres, and intensities with which to thwart new methodologies of subsumption.

En algún lado y en ninguno is a compilation of poems by the jazz musician and poet Sun Ra (Alabama 1914 – Birmingham 1993), selected and translated into Spanish by Mariana Castillo Deball, Tania Islas Weinstein and Alberto Ortega. The adventure began in a library that looks like a spaceship, next to a monument in the shape of a burned marshmallow that celebrates the first atomic reaction generated by humans. A plaque in the monument suggests that the powerful energy should be used for beneficial purposes. Inside this lunar library is the Special Collections Centre at the University of Chicago, that keeps the archive of Alton Abraham – Sun Ra Collection, comprising the period 1822-2008. Alton Abraham (1927-1999), entrepreneur and hospital technician, was a friend and partner of Sun Ra, and throughout his life he collected manuscripts, ephemera, artifacts, photographs and audio-visual recordings of the work of Sun Ra and his collaborators. Within the archive, which occupies 48 m of linear shelf space (146 boxes and a large folder) we found Sun Ra’s wallet, containing his lawyer’s business card, the insurance receipt for his car, a cabalistic amulet, and a million dollar bill perforated in the center. We also discovered Sun Ra’s typed poems, with handwritten corrections and in various versions. His poems generate a parallel geometry, a world that is precise and ambiguous at the same time. A sidereal enthusiasm made us think that the translation of his poems into our mother tongue could bring us close to his cosmos, and simultaneously allow us to share them with the Spanish-speaking firmament. Selection and translation by Mariana Castillo Deball, Tania Islas Weinstein and Alberto Ortega.

Blue has run is an intervened facsimile of A Catalog of Textiles and Folkart of Chiapas by the anthropologist Walter F. Morris, published in 1979. The original publication was printed in 100 copies, most of which have been lost or dispersed through various specialized libraries. This catalog listed the items belonging to three collections of fabrics and weaving patterns in South Mexico which Walter F. Morris, called Chip, helped to constitute during mid seventies: the Pellizzi, the Pomar and the Morris Collection. Its DIY quality gives the images an almost abstract twist. This and the painstakingly precise descriptions of the items take the content of the catalog towards territories closer to poetry, drifting it away from its original purpose.

In the trilogy of videos portraited in this book, Insight, Suspension and The Lost Object, the artist invites us to suspend ourselves in a dream-like scenario dominated by lighting effects. We do not enter a dark room but an atmosphere subject to the different beams of light shining all around us. That is the point, to throw light on the unknown, or on what we take for granted as natural when in fact it is nothing more than an impoverished fallacy. Or maybe it is simply about shining a light on ourselves as subjects and returning to the true essence of things: beauty, surprise, novelty and illusion. The unknown.
