of wrappings. The design of this artist book is based on photographes
of made layouts of waste, moody notes, scribbelings and liquid stains.

Texts by Pier Paolo Tamburelli, Noura Al Sayeh
Taken at the height of the Assad days, the images of the photographer Giovanna Silva overlap in this publication with Syrian tourist guides’ images and texts, creating a net of intended and unintended relationships and time interconnections. As Pier Paolo Tamburelli writes in his essay, “Silva’s photo speak of time that is twice lost. […] When I look at them, I can smell that apparently eternal condition of no-change in Syria before 2011. I recognize the omnipresent, idiotic smile of Bashar – at the time still considered the gentle son of Hafez al-Assad (the ophthalmologist who lived in London and did not really wanted to leave to become a dictator and who finally had to substitute the nasty brother probably killed by Mossad). Now that the civil war has erased everything that belonged to that Syria, now that everything changed, I have the impression that that world is way more lost than many other episodes of the past. Both for Syrians and for foreigners the memories of the civil war will occupy all the space that could have been dedicated to these last twenty years of Syrian history. […] Not only are those moments gone, but they will not be remembered. The boredom of that period entirely disappeared in the cruel excitement of the war. The pictures are a strange homage to a lost world”.

OnCurating Issue 31_Dorothee Richter_Motto books_1

On Curating @ Motto Berlin. July 23rd from 7pm

OnCurating #31- Spheres of Estrangement: Art, Politics and Curating

With contributions from

Josephine Baker-Heaslip, Jonas Becker, Franco ‘Bifo’ Beradi, Benjamin T. Busch, Dan Bustillo, Lilian Cameron, Joey Cannizzaro, Carson Chan, Jeni Fulton, Ken Gonzales-Day, Matthew Hanson, Anke Hennig, Alistair Hudson, Alison Hugill, Suzana Milevska, Jared Pappas Kelley, Penny Rafferty, PUNK IS DADA, Claire Ruud, Jack Schneider, Adrian Shaw, Paul Stewart, Sam Thorne.
Editors: Jonas Becker, Benjamin T. Busch, Matthew Hanson, Penny Rafferty, Paul Stewart

Today’s estrangement is a fully incorporated component of the modern experience, a stimulant for ‘surplus alienation’. Therefore, this issue asks what artistic, architectural and curatorial approaches to estrangement offer current discourse in organisation, aesthetics and activism. The articles unpack estrangement for the political, social and cultural sprint of our time.

Dan Rees / Dieter Roelstraete / Mousse Publishing @ Motto Berlin. 10.07.2016

Posted in events on July 6th, 2016

Rees_Mousse

Sunday July 10th, from 5pm @ Motto Berlin

Please join us to celebrate the launch of Dan Rees’ new monograph, Road Back to Relevance. The event will include a conversation between the artist and Documenta 14 curator Dieter Roelstraete.

Published by Mousse on the occasion of his exhibition at Nomas Foundation in Rome, Road Back to Relevance gives insight into the last decade of Rees’ practice. It brings together groups of works that have never before been viewed simultaneously, and reveals the complex nature of the artist’s research. The title refers to a slide presentation made in collaboration with an advertising strategist and designer that, by charting the course of a specific solidarity campaign between Wales and Nicaragua started in the 1980s, questions how pre-”clicktivist” modes of social engagement, activism, and international solidarity can remain relevant today. As Dieter Roelstraete writes in his essay contribution, “The work of Dan Rees touches upon a wide range of topics, subjects, and issues, but one dominant, recurring preoccupation doubtlessly concerns the politics of taste. ‘Taste’ – its cultural corollaries, its political over and undertones, and most importantly its social sources – is one of Rees’s preferred problems. And where it is addressed most directly and unapologetically – that is to say, in the so-called Artex paintings – is exactly where his work becomes most willingly, egregiously ‘problematic.’”
