 Lessons in Posing Subjects. Robert Heinecken. WIELS. Triangles Books.

Published on the occasion of the exhibition of the same title, this book presents the series Lessons in Posing Subjects which Robert Heinecken created in 1981-1982 and reproduced here in its entirety for the first time.
Playing with the reality effect inherent to instant photographs, Heinecken re-contextualizes in this series images found in mail order catalogues, which he juxtaposes with ironic texts.
At once seductive and full of humour, his ‘lessons’ are no less provocative, bearing witness to the commitment of this controversial artist, who considered his approach a form of ‘guerrilla’ artistic practice.

SO SO TIRED. Joe Silveira. Colour Code Printing

Joe Silveira takes photos of architectural surface ornamentation with his iPhone… migrating these photos from social media to risograph iterations, the book rattles the moment of democratization, of capturing and sharing what one sees, with the gorgeous and strange relief of a finality in finding that opportunity.

Ultimate Lezcation. Yuri Manabe.

I was looking for a scenery
experience
connected with my fantasy world
place that we want
still now and now
its ongoing
and somewhere
suddenly
around corner
If I want to get out the room
maybe something
you will do and meet and fuck

Yasei no Shikou. Yuri Manabe.

That Title comes from the work of Claude Levi-Strauss “La Pensee Sauvage”. I haven’t read it, but thinking about wild and structure in nature as neutral place often where man did not make and its surrounding and margin.

Lost Paradise. Žiga Kariž in collaboration with Vasja Cenčič.

Lost Paradise. Žiga Kariž in collaboration with Vasja Cenčič. 

Lost Paradise consists only of images. Artwork signed by Žiga Kariž in collaboration with designer Vasja Cenčič doesn’t’ even have classic book binding. No hardcover, no softcover, no binding in the middle. Instead, it consists only of 130 leaves, wrapped in cellophane. Calling this artwork by the technical term book is therefore seemingly problematic, which is underlined by the response of the Slovenian National and University Library that has designated Lost Paradise as a book at first, but has later changed its decision.1 A similar fate has befallen Ed Ruscha’s first cult book Twentysix Gasoline Stations in 1963. The book was rejected by the American Library of Congress because of its “unorthodox form and supposed lack of information”.2 Lost Paradise is in fact an even more unlikely candidate to achieve book status than Ruscha’s gasoline stations.

What has probably ultimately convinced the librarian bureaucracy that what lies on the table of the National and University Library is not a book or indeed any other sort of publication, is the fact that Lost Paradise is a book which contains no words save for the note on the cover. The cover foil bears a sticker which holds an extended colophon that gives basic data in two languages: “Lost Paradise by Žiga Kariž in collaboration with Vasja Cenčič was published by Zavod Projekt Atol, with Marko Peljhan acting as editor at large. The first issue was printed by Littera Picta in 250 copies and published in December 2010 with support of the Ministry of Culture or the Republic of Slovenia.”3  The text reveals only basic information: the title, the names of the editor and publisher, the year and place of publication. The price of the book is printed next to this data and can be compared to the prices of illustrated books about art; therefore the book does not try to label itself as artwork through its value. Of course, save for the title, there is also information about authorship, which is the only relevant and important piece of data for understanding of the artwork.

biographical landscapes of new zagreb. Claudia Bosse (Ed.) Cheap Method Edition – Motto Books & theatercombinat.

New Zagreb. The Museum of Contemporary Art (MSU), its space, collection and environment, and the unique concept of its urbanism were the starting points of the artistic research project called Biographical Landscapes of New Zagreb by Claudia Bosse, and was conceived through field research, including the analysis of actual experiences of urbanism in New Zagreb based on the memories and lifestyles of its inhabitants.

Invited by EUROKAZ and MSU to develop a unique project for the museum and its surroundings, Claudia Bosse and Günther Auer collaborated on visiting living spaces (apartments) in different urban areas of New Zagreb in December 2011. In March 2012, they interviewed the inhabitants on issues such as democracy, capitalism and identity. These experiences resulted in the research project which became part of the museum’s live installation, and an art-transfer between the museum and private living spaces: Biographical landscapes of New Zagreb.
