Initially known for her work in photography—which she has been making over the last three decades—New York–based artist Moyra Davey (born 1958) is also an esteemed writer, editor and, most recently, filmmaker, whose works layer personal narratives with explorations of other authors, filmmakers and artists. This book is based on two related projects that take form as text, photography and film. Les Goddesses (2011) collapses the lives of Davey and her five sisters with those of the daughters of Mary Wollstonecraft, the 18th-century feminist writer and activist. Hemlock Forest (2016) weaves references to Wollstonecraft, Chantal Akerman and Karl Ove Knausgaard with her own family stories. During the making of Hemlock Forest, Akerman took her own life. Her death soon engulfed Davey’s awareness, prompting a broader exploration of Akerman’s and her own biographies, amid more universal themes of compulsion, artistic production, life and its passing.

DINGE UND DIALOGE

Book Launch @ Motto Berlin

Saturday, March 18 2017
6-9 pm

DINGE UND DIALOGE
Ed. by: Barbara Kapusta, Jenni Tischer and Rocco Pagel

The publication Dinge und Dialoge explores the relationship between the material character of things and the physical existence of the observer. The individual contributions in the publication as well as in the exhibition with the same title, that was realized at Scriptings Berlin from December 2015 until January 2016, raise questions about the particular, unique standpoint from which we can speak and perceive. The artists and writers examine the possibilities of seeing differences in objects, recognizing an object as something distinct and our  capacity of seeing and comprehending. The publication traces the proposition that where everyday objects and art objects concur, due to their similarities and differences, their status becomes productive.

With contributions from Daniel Heinrich, Kathi Hofer, Barbara Kapusta, Ulrike Köppinger, Katrin Mayer, Ulrike Müller, Rocco Pagel, Jenni Tischer and texts by Jorella Andrews and Oona Lochner.

Design: studio VIE
Edition: 300 pieces
En./Ger., 84 pages, multi-part, bound by hand, numerous illustrations in color, 21,5 x 30,5 cm, eight different softcovers designed by the participating artists.

Waldo Pardon, Alexandra Myshalov, Nadia de Vries and Adrienne Herr @ Motto Berlin
Saturday March 11th, 6-9pm

‘Class of 2017’ will be a reading in preparation for greater things. Showcasing artists and poets who have little in common, other than their enrollment and an A+ attitude. Come to a presentation of new work by 4 poets.

Most Likely to Get Out of Here:
Waldo Pardon (b. 1997, Belgium) is a writer and filmmaker. For Class of 2017, Pardon will read the first chapter of ‘The Bacterial Anchor,’ his unfinished novel. ‘The Bacterial Anchor’ is a fairy tale that revolves around 4 teenagers, densely keyworded, sinisterly branded, and their pilgrimage to an OG necropolis as soon as they get released from a juvenile detention center in Florida.

Most Likely to Crash on Your Couch:
Alexandra Myshalov (b. 1995 USA) is a writer, globalized subject, and sacrificial object. For Class of 2017, Alexandra will read “Port of call”, a rubric for narcissistic divination that combines confessional narrative and cut ups from Heavier than Heaven: A Biography of Kurt Cobain.

Most Liked by Parents:
Nadia de Vries (b. 1991, the Netherlands) is a poet and curator. She is the author of First Communion (2015), R.I.P. Nadia de Vries (2016) and Pain in Translation (forthcoming 2017). In 2016, she curated Sisternhood, a poetry anthology featuring work by European women writing in English. She lives and works in Amsterdam.

Most Likely to Succeed:
Adrienne Herr (b. 1991 USA) is a poet who works heavily with video and performance.

Hybrid Modernism – Movie Theatres in South India
Haubitz + Zoche (eds.)

In the period from the 1950s to the 1970s, a large number of cinemas were built in both the urban and rural areas of South India. Their architecture is an unusual mix of Western influences and local building styles. The brightly coloured façades resemble stage sets and provide a foretaste of the film experience in the auditorium, where the extravagant forms and embellishments are continued, getting the audience in the mood for the cinematic world before the opening credits roll. One might call this architectural language a kind of hybrid modernism. Many of these cinemas have been maintained in their original state. However, in the big cities, the process of converting them into multiplexes has already begun. Haubitz+Zoche’s photographs from the period 2010 – 2013 document a piece of cinema culture that has already for the most part disappeared in Europe and the USA and is being increasingly displaced in India by commercial interests.

ECOCORE 5 – The Issue of Narcissism – BERLIN LAUNCH @ Motto Berlin

Friday 3rd March from 6-9pm

with a collaborative reading and a performance by Eli Pitegoff and Lukas Hofmann / Saliva: ‘Bringing my phone to its destination’.

ECOCORE is an irregularly published and independent ecology magazine exploring the camouflaged souls of ecology and culture. Published by Alessandro Bava since 2011, its latest release is ECOCORE 5: The Issue of Narcissism, which exploits Narcissus as the symbol of the modern subject. What are we as subjects and why is this question so often explored as a discourse of the body? What is our ‘nature’, and how do we get to it? How do we commune with the external as if it weren’t hostile? How do we cultivate an environment we want to participate in? Our psychic/social ecology meets with the environmental in haemorrhage of inner to outer.
