Fara Fara means face-to-face in Lingala and is a musical phenomenon deeply rooted in Congolese culture. Two groups play at the same time at adjacent locations, and the ones who play longest win. In times gone by, disputes were sometimes settled in this way; nowadays, it is more about musical leadership. A Fara Fara is a massive event attracting huge crowds, but it happens very rarely.
This book is about a film where a Fara Fara takes place in Kinshasa, a musical battle between the two major proponents of Congolese contemporary rumba. The film has not been made yet. It will be directed by the artist Carsten Höller and the film director Måns Månsson.
The book contains photographs taken during various preparatory trips, made since 2001 by Pierre Björk, Hoyte van Hoytema, Reed Kram, Armin Linke, Giovanna Silva, Patrik Strömdahl and the directors. The Swedish writer and music cognoscente Elin Unnes provided the text.

This catalogue brings the first comprehensive survey of most of public art works which Sanja Iveković has either sketched, proposed or performed “on the street” over the last three decades. As we face a time when the idea of public space is confronted by the effects of private capital, and while on the other side of that coin the feminist slogan ‘private is political’ still has it’s raison d’etre, Ivekovic rethinks notions of public through her work.
Published in conjunction with the exhibition “Anicka Yi: 6,070,430K of Digital Spit” at the MIT List Visual Arts Center, the book includes an exchange between Caroline A. Jones and Yi on scent, ethnicity, and symbiotic microorganisms; an essay by Johanna Burton on networks and extravisual means; and an essay by Alise Upitis on the irreducible ambiguity of Yi’s work. Anicka Yi: 6,070,430K of Digital Spit is the artist’s first monograph.
Texts by Johanna Burton, Caroline A. Jones and Anicka Yi, and Alise Upitis

Müller Josh 1–5 (2014) is a self-published artist’s book developed collaboratively by artist Josh Müller (DE/AT) and typographer Nik Thoenen (CH/AT). The project contains documentary material from five individual bodies of work, however without providing an overview — nor a review — of Müller’s artwork. While two of the five slim volumes expand on or parallel to existing works, the other three elaborate on non-shown long-term documentary and archival projects from 2001-2013. As a whole, the book engages with the generation of narrative. Far from being a fragmented linear reproduction of existing works, the publication demands montaging as an unbound collage, an exploration of the literary and the visual, enhancing the experiences of cross- and close reading. A self-published project: a work in the form of a book. Unbound and loose-leafed, an installative work in itself, a tribute to the non-linear character of the five volumes.

The Black Mountain College (BMC), founded in 1933 in North Carolina, is considered by its multidisciplinary and experimental education thought as one of the most innovative schools in the first half of the 20th century. Visual arts, economics, physics, dance, architecture and music were taught here on an equal footing; Teachers and students lived together in a democratically organized community. The first rector of the school was John Andrew Rice, among many other gifts here Josef Albers, John Cage, Walter Gropius and Buckminster Fuller courses. At BMC, many avant-garde concepts were developed. The image-rich band appears on the exhibition Black Mountain. He is the first comprehensive publication on the Black Mountain College in the German-speaking countries and traces the history of this legendary school in its basic features after.
