Graphic designer Ivana Palečková was born exactly seven days before the Velvet Revolution. She doesnʼt incline to nostalgia or retro. Despite this fact, she choses to work with the “classic” 35mm color negative film. She uses her mobile phone mostly for phone calls. This book is a selection from a large photographic archive of this young artist who sees taking photos of her closest surroundings, visited places and situations around her as a natural addition to creative life of a graphic designer. Without aspiring to make it as a photographer. The artist who works as a graphic designer has put together a visual essay whose words (photographs) can be taken apart and “reassembled” by readers according to their taste. The readers create new sentences of their own (photographic diptychs and triptychs).

These include: a manifesto on slow vs. fast typography by Lobregat Balaguer (PH/ES), Veronica Grow (AU) and Niko Spelbrink (NL); an essay exploring identity politics and graffiti writing in the Philippines; and two special, syndicated case studies focused on indigenous type construction. The case studies are: “Nagari: Learning to Make Writing for Indian’s Biggest Script” by Catherine Leigh Schmidt (US) and “The Babel Issue” by Birk Marcus Hansen (DK), a bilingual typography experiment that combines Chinese and Roman characters.

Design by Dante Carlos and Kristian Henson.

Edition Bauhaus 48

Text: Claudia Perren, Werner Möller, Astrid Volpert

Genossenschaften, Sharing Community, Co-Housing – das Kollektiv hat Konjunktur. Fragen zum Verhältnis von Gesellschaft und Gestaltung, von individueller und gemeinschaftlicher Kreation und Produktion wurden bereits Ende der 1920er Jahre intensiv am Bauhaus verhandelt: Besonders der zweite Bauhausdirektor Hannes Meyer richtete Lehre und Werkstätten, Planung und Architektur radikal am Kollektiv und seinen Bedürfnissen aus. Revolutionär war besonders Meyers Idee eines gemeinschaftlichen Gestaltungsprozesses. Diesem sogenannten Coop-Prinzip widmet sich nun erstmals eine Ausstellung im Bauhaus Dessau vom 21. Mai bis 4. Oktober 2015.

Co-published mit der Stiftung Bauhaus Dessau

mit 97 schwarz/weiß-Abbildungen, fadengeheftete Broschur

Gestaltung: Prill Vieceli Cremers, Zürich
Herausgeber: Werner Möller in Zusammenarbeit mit/in collaboration with Raquel Franklin

Surpllus: Talk and book launch @ Motto IMA. 01.11.2014.

IMA and Motto present a talk by Melbourne-based designer and publisher Brad Haylock.

Haylock is program manager of the newly updated Master of Communication Design program at RMIT University, and founding editor of Surpllus, an independent publishing imprint that focuses on critical and speculative practices across art, design, architecture and writing. This talk will consider the politics of publishing and the contested significance of print in the digital age.

Haylock’s talk will be followed by the Brisbane launch of Surpllus #17, Tom Nicholson’s Cartoons for Joseph Selleny, an artist’s book produced as a part of the solo exhibition of the same name at the Art Gallery of New South Wales, Sydney, and shown in the exhibition Allegory of the Cave Painting at Extra City Kunsthal, Antwerp, both in 2014.

Saturday 1st November, 4pm
