The Complete Plays – Guy de Cointet

First publication to gathers all theatrical works by artist Guy de Cointet, written between 1973 and 1983. 25 plays, published with an explanatory apparatus and numerous documents from the de Cointet Estate at the Centre Pompidou’s Kandinsky Library.
This publication constitutes the first complete publication of de Cointet’s theatrical plays—both in the original language and in translation. Richly illustrated, the book showcases documents relating to the design and the staging of these works: notebooks, drawings, photographs, posters, and invitation cards, coming from the archives of Guy de Cointet Estate at the Centre Pompidou’s Kandinsky Library. The Complete Plays also features comments, interviews, and work notes, to help contextualize and analyze the artist’s theatrical plays.

De Cointet is recognized as one of the major figures in the Conceptual art movement that emerged in Los Angeles in the 1970s, having strongly influenced a number of prominent artists working in southern California today, including Paul McCarthy and Mike Kelley, for whom both drawing and performance figure significantly in their artistic practices.

Edited by Hugues Decointet, François Piron, Marilou Thiébault.

Graphic design: Laure Giletti & Gregory Dapra.

French version also available.

In 1970, Trasov assumed the identity of Mr. Peanut, donning a handmade paper mâché replica of the mascot of the Planters Peanut Company. Soon after, he produced The Mr. Peanut Mayoralty Campaign of 1974, a twenty-day performance developed in collaboration with members of the Vancouver arts community. The legume quickly became Trasov’s cipher and central component of his practice. Mr. Peanut Drawings collects nearly a hundred of Trasov’s Peanut drawings together with a text by Nancy Tousley.

This year sees an election campaign and the candidates of the parties are present everywhere showing different slogans but the same pose: in a suit and tie looking to the camera with confidence and a bright smile. Erik Steinbrecher makes them all the same in his latest publication PARTY: Whether nationally conservative or left-liberal, the hopefuls in Germany or France, Switzerland, Great Britain or the USA are here alienated by the tomato slaughter to the point of being unrecognisable. Yet the reader still tries to find out who they are.

ARTIST TALK
Arthur Fouray in conversation with Rachel Walker
7.30 pm

We are happy to invite you to the launch of Tombolo Presses new publication, an artist book by Arthur Fouray.

The publication sets a comprehensive entry point into a research Arthur Fouray began in 2015 with his solo show “Spectre” at Espace Quark, Geneva. Through art and decoration history, he questions the shift between painting before the industrial revolution and the cinematographic experience. He proposes to the spectator an art experience which skips interaction by teasing the unsaid.

The launch of the book is accompanied by a talk between Rachel Walker and Arthur Fouray. A bookshelf will display books published by Tombolo Presses in recent years.

ECOCORE 5 – The Issue of Narcissism – BERLIN LAUNCH @ Motto Berlin

Friday 3rd March from 6-9pm

with a collaborative reading and a performance by Eli Pitegoff and Lukas Hofmann / Saliva: ‘Bringing my phone to its destination’.

ECOCORE is an irregularly published and independent ecology magazine exploring the camouflaged souls of ecology and culture. Published by Alessandro Bava since 2011, its latest release is ECOCORE 5: The Issue of Narcissism, which exploits Narcissus as the symbol of the modern subject. What are we as subjects and why is this question so often explored as a discourse of the body? What is our ‘nature’, and how do we get to it? How do we commune with the external as if it weren’t hostile? How do we cultivate an environment we want to participate in? Our psychic/social ecology meets with the environmental in haemorrhage of inner to outer.
