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.

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.

Our relationship with animals is fraught and contradictory: we simultaneously mythologize, venerate, sacrifice, and exploit those who are not of our species. This paradox suggests that our connection with animals might be more complicated, and far richer, than commonly thought, and that the distinction between human and animal is not at all clear-cut. By laying down a novel artistic and theoretical framework, Animality, devised by Jens Hoffmann in conjunction with Marian Goodman Gallery, looks to examine this complex relationship. Written to accompany an exhibition of the same name, it includes more than seventy participants, mostly from the world of art, but also covering film, literature, philosophy, and science.

A fully illustrated catalogue designed by A Practice for Everyday Life.

Calla Henkel and Max Pitegoff’s book collects black and white photographs taken at apartment viewings in Berlin, London and Zürich in 2015, and exhibited at Galerie Isabella Bortolozzi in Berlin the same year. The images render a landscape of apartments, mostly empty, punctuated by potential buyers or renters projecting their own possible futures onto the spaces. The photographs blend into each other as if one building, aggregating material treatments, fixtures, flooring, and faucets in their extraordinary specificity; or as if one city, seen from the inside as a picture of a private public sphere. The book includes a new text by writer Pablo Larios elaborating on the staging of personal environments and the relationship between figure and ground in Henkel and Pitegoff’s work.

Calla Henkel and Max Pitegoff (b. 1988/1987, US) are artists who work together in Berlin. From 2013 until 2015 they ran New Theater in Berlin, a theater and performance space where they produced amateur plays with writers, musicians and visual artists. Their work has been shown at the 9th Berlin Biennale, Schinkel Pavillon, Berlin; Witte de With, Rotterdam; the Galerie für Zeitgennössische Kunst, Leipzig; the Kunsthalle Wien, Vienna; the Kunsthalle Bern,; and the Whitney Museum, New York.

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.

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?
