Rab-Rab: journal for political and formal inquiries in art

In almost 400 pages the third issue of Rab-Rab departs from Karl Marx’ essay on the law on the forest theft. The singularity of this essay is in its style; written in 1842, with the means of poetic abstraction it intervenes in the appropriation of the common resources by the private capital. By actualising poetry and abstraction as devices of political engagement, the third issue of the journal focuses on the question of subjectivity in art and politics. Among the diverse contributions the third issue includes texts and drawings on poetic configurations of Communist Manifesto, anti-fascist hallucinations of Artaud, neoliberalism of pirate radios, suburban riots, materiality of the film, representation of Stalin, communist sensuality, Last Futurist exhibition, documentary abstraction, declaration of East, Kazimir Malevich, the Black Square as organising principle, theory and militancy, Hegel and conceptualism, critique of objectivity of landscape, communism for children, hard-core punk, Art & Language, non-figuralism of art in self-management socialism, mathemes of cinematic experiments, the lesson of Rodolfo Walsh, and critique of ideological interpellation.

Nang #1 Screenwriting

A 10-issue magazine dedicated to cinema in Asia.

Conributors: Oggs Cruz, Shohreh Golparian, Sonia Kil, Donsaron Kovitvanitcha, Darcy Paquet, Lisabona Rahman, Jasmine Seo
Guest Editor: Ben Slater.

Our intention is to shed light on an area of filmmaking that is both mysterious and marginalized, especially in regards to cinema in Asia. While the films may be famous or successful, the writers remain in the background, and yet their work is vital to the process of creating cinema. Through a series of often in-depthinterviews with 13 writers and writer-directors from Indonesia, the Philippines, Singapore, South Korea, Malaysia, Thailand and Iran, we encounter myriad writing experiences, methods for developing stories, and discover the ways in which screenwriters survive and endure within their film industries. Rarely seen pages from the screenplays of, among others, Laskar Pelangi, Tropical Malady, The Handmaiden, Shahrzad and Unlucky Plaza further enrich this unique exploration into writing for the screen.

Our issues in 2016 carry the same title: The Flexible Image. They examine the (photographic) image as it expands into two distinct yet related directions: the image as text/sign and the image as operation. In this issue, PART II, we ponder the image as text. Inspired by Aperture’s issue Lit., we ask whether the image has taken over from the word, and if gestures are in turn replacing images. This is something that Nancy Newhall wrote about in Aperture’s first issue, back in 1952: ‘Perhaps the old literacy of words is dying and a new literacy of images is being born. Perhaps the printed page will disappear and even our records [will] be kept in images and sounds.’

This issue includes a conversation with Nicholas Muellner and Catherine Taylor from the Image Text initiative – on your suggestion, Lucas – and Taylor agrees with Newhall’s statement that ‘photograph-writing’ might become ‘the form through which we shall speak to each other, in many succeeding phases of photography, for a thousand years or more’. And, like Newhall, she concedes the continuing importance of text, saying, ‘The association of words and photographs has grown into a medium with immense influence on what we think, and, in the new photograph-writing, the most significant development so far is in the caption.’ This summer saw the new Photo-Text Award at Les Rencontres d’Arles, rewarding the best book combining images and texts, which suggests that we’re likely to see more work in this genre in the time to come. Lucas, could you describe your relationship to images and text?

Issue #31 — Winter

2016/2017

HELMUT LANG

From 1986 to 2005, Helmut Lang systematically deconstructed every assumption about clothing and the way it is worn and communicated. As he himself once said, “I kept all the traditions and shades that were good — and then re-thought it all.” The Austrian designer’s lists of “firsts” is so long it could double as conceptual art. Lang was one of the first designers to collaborate with visual artists. The first to show clothing for men and women in a single presentation. The first to pioneer backstage photography as we know it today with Juergen Teller. The first to move a fashion house across the Atlantic… and the list goes on. In a 48-page dossier, 032c Issue 31 explores THE HELMUT LANG LEGACY and how his abrupt exit from the industry in 2005 has been felt like phantom limb in the world of fashion. The comprehensive study features essays by Ingeborg Harms and Ulf Poschardt, a roundtable with Tim Blanks, Olivier Saillard, and Neville Wakefield, an interview with Lang himself, as well as rare material from the Helmut Lang archive.

“People say this is vandalism.” 032c’s Bianca Heuser and photographer Nadine Fraczkowski take us inside ANNE IMHOF’s Angst, a grand and opaque artwork that has drifted across the world like a low-pressure system. Furnished with smoke machines, sleeping bags, razors, and bongs, the three-act immersive opera is a training camp for the denizens of hyper-capitalism.

Terremoto 7: Eternal Life

A move towards secularization–the minimization of the presence of religion in public life, has been driven by many modernizing governments and regimes during the 20th century. For many, religion remains the main explanation of worldly phenomena and institutional and familial logic, and its influence is usually persistent in the most intimate behaviors. However, lately religion has been portrayed in Western media as a source of violence and intolerance— forgoing its conciliatory role.

What is known as the “ontological turn” in contemporary anthropology is part of a pursuit to deconstruct the metaphysics and relativism underlying the very questions asked by the humanities about knowledge production and spirituality. Current work in social sciences, technology studies, science and the arts have continued to reshape the idea of spirituality by troubling Western canons, establishing a dialogue with manifold cosmologies to better understand the ways we can relate to the non human and the inhuman.

In Eternal Life, Terremoto seeks to explore accounts linked to the mystical, the spiritual, the carnal, and the incarnate in relation to the arts, but also within a broader cultural spectrum. Through such examination we move to reconcile desire with the awareness of sharing this earth and perhaps, the entire unbound universe, with other life forms and entities.

Extracts

Polysemous Synthetics (on Park McArthur’s ‘Poly’, Chisenhale Gallery, April 2016)
Jonathan P Watts

‘Poly’, from the Greek meaning ‘many’, already suggests the idea of multiplicity. Poly is the prefix of polymer; in various compound forms, synthetic polymers perform an omnipresent role in our daily lives. Is there a substance richer in meaning and metaphor? Plastic speaks of multiplicity and omnipresence. Plastics in textile blends wrap around our bodies, providing thresholds between the world and our skin. Gels – those weird polymer solids that flow – hold the form of the body. Although aware of Park’s political argument against metaphor, I couldn’t reconcile the literalness of material and the disavowal of its metaphorical resonances. Plastics are a fundamental ontological rug pull, so to speak. The widespread use of plastics following the second world war not only enabled new forms, but augured unforeseen possibilities of mimesis. In other words, plastic helps us to think about identity.

Mutational Media & DeepTime Thrombosis: On Darren Banks’s Object Cinema
Jamie Sutcliffe

Get the feeling we’ve been here before? The remote northerly location, the arrogant frontierism of a bunch of bearded scientists, the excavation of some ancient intelligence? Despite being a fantastically pointed, topical and originally scary in its own right, The Last Winter draws heavily on John Carpenter’s 1982 alien-infection classic The Thing, from its pacing, through its paranoia, to the perilous uncertainty of its final scene. The setting and situation may have changed, but we’re still involved in the same grievous plight of cosmological vulnerability. Casting a little grit onto the cultural tundra, letting the strata reveal itself, it turns out there’s a visible lineage that recedes from Carpenter’s own movie back through a hundred years of texts, comic book adaptations and films that replay the same story in which a group of scientists excavate a primordial life form that seeks its own survival by infecting human subjects. One could even go so far as to suggest that the story itself is a parasitic entity, employing human media as the impotent host of its own regenerative self-purpose.

Notes on Disobedient Children (Dorine van Meel, 2015)
Naomi Pearce

(Dorine) creates a cracked and empty landscape, a handful of pylons sparsely scattered, barely perceptible in the red fog. There’s no sun, or sky or horizon. Another image: a meshwork of untethered electricity cables, slack, inoperative. Cut to a heavenly futuristic landscape where the remnants of human institutions – a white wedding veil – float serenely free. There are no bodies here, just structures on a sliding scale of functionality. We look up from inside a rhizomatic cage or out at a far-reaching line of fences. These are monuments to construction, they mark boundaries but in all this emptiness it’s not clear what they separate, what orders they impose.

All the while crumbling, glitching audio mutates. The sound of movement, of things breaking, both digitally and physically, tectonic plates shifting, buildings falling, rubbish heaps accumulating.

According to Alice 2:The Scent of Ubiquity
Alice Hattrick

Nothing much changes in the minutes and hours after atomization. It is ‘green’ and citrus – lemon and bergamot – and then slightly floral. An hour later it becomes woodier before it is basically nothing. L’Eau d’Issey (1992) was just as ubiquitous in the 1990s and much more interesting: a whole flower – stem and bloom – and way dirtier than its name suggests. The only decent descriptor I can think of for CK One is ‘CK One’. It sits on top of your skin and refuses to have anything to do with you. No part of it sticks, stays, or really changes. And then I realize: it’s not supposed to. CK One is no one’s signature scent. It is pure ubiquity. It is the definition of blending in. Wearing CK One, I have the thought that this is in fact the opposite of perfume.

Period Piece
Hannah Gregory

Looking back to the bloody patterns of Instagram and Tumblr, it seems that the elsewhere rehearsed prescription of social media as contemporary ritual (inglorious ritual) fits. These rhythmic performances are linked to the public-private life of the selfie generation, sure, but they are more than a narcissistic gesture or appeal for attention. Sociologist Karen Gregory has suggested that social media helps elaborate ‘an improvised narrative arc of personal spiritual development [which] can mitigate the dislocation and desperation of precarity.’ In this reading, online expressions are immediately reified as ‘one’s [provisional] life story’ is converted into social or actual capital for the users or the platforms. While the period posts do act as an outlet for an alienating experience, they resist becoming just another instantiation of self-branding.Their gridded repetitions try to put disorder in order, and their shared hashtags of #menstrala and #periodart represent what it might mean to bleed collectively. Un-pretty and undesirable, the images make visible what society prefers to censor.

A Woman Under the Influence (on Sophie Cundale’s After Picasso, God, 2016)
Amy Budd

The iconoclastic title After Picasso, God betrays the simple narrative structure and prosaic content of a film following a day in the life of a woman undergoing hypnosis to quit smoking. Whereas in previous works the artist mostly remained behind the camera, only occasionally making her presence felt in Prologue by interrupting improvised scenes with one line quips and directions, After Picasso, God sees Cundale perform the role of non-verbal protagonist, smoking her way through South London’s public and private spaces.

Queer Mysticism, Feral Communism and [the Body of Text]
Caspar Heinemann

A grounding statement is: Your body is literally hollow; another is: You literally do not have a body but rather millions.This gets more intense when you disregard Cartesian dualism and remember you don’t have but rather are bodies. ‘Your’ ‘body’ is constituted by organisms of many different genders and none. Literally literally literally literally and a few metaphorically.

Swooning
Lizzie Homersham

To my recovered self and to ideas about the obligation to care, Firestone’s ‘Swooning’ is like (Agnes) Martin’s Homage to Life: remarkable for making imperative the need to visualize a problem in order to put it to rest. Remarkable for being the blanket you might wrap around yourself when, echoing Claudia Rankine, ‘you are alone and too tired even to turn on any of your devices, you let yourself linger in a past stacked among your pillows.’ The black blanket you might share? By posting ‘Swooning’ to Twitter, and writing about it here, I wanted to put Firestone’s edges and the tempting prospect of disappearance into dialogue with some questions I have about social media. If that’s not too much of a flight of mind.

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.
