distracted-reader #1 Mixtures: Xin Cheng and Allan Smith. split/fountain.

156 pages with drawings, photographs and texts by Xin Cheng, and drawings, photographs and texts by Allan Smith.

The title Mixtures comes from a 2011 Xin Cheng exhibition; in this publication Cheng mixes memories of a Chinese childhood with recipes for healthy eating, photographed pages of anthropology texts showing Mongolian Yurts, and knitted socks from Scandinavia, images of ingenious low-tech merchandising stands in Cambodia, drawings of stone walls, and a bread igloo.

Smith writes about the copiousness and fabricational inventiveness of Cheng’s practice, and about the accumulative materiality in the collages and architectural practice of ex-pat architect M.K. Smith.

Allan Smith’s ‘un-illustrations’ set old school ink drawing and comic-book sequencing to work on the textured ‘push and pressure’ of a densely textured world.

White Zinfandel # 4: La Grande Bouffe. Jiminie Ha (Ed.). W/—— Projects.

The Spring/Summer 2013 theme is “La Grand Bouffe,” based on the seminal French 1973 film directed by Marco Ferreri, in which food is “the last hope hidden in the despair of living.” Artists responded with loose interpretations that engaged with the rigor and discipline of pushing boundaries.

Contributors to the issue include Marina Abramovic, Agathe Snow, Aric Chen, Asger Carlsen, Cay Sophie Rabinowitz, Hans Ulrich Obrist + Simon Castets, Chris Burden, Daniel Gordon, David Horvitz, Davide Balula, Frédéric Malle + Sissel Tolaas, Ethel Rohan, Lucas Blalock, Luis Gispert, Luke Stettner + Carmen Winant, Nicole Wermers, Pete Deevakul, Raul Martinez, Sara Greenberger Rafferty, and Seth Zucker.

In dieser Ausgabe:

-So lebe Ich
Die niederlaendiche Architektin und Designerin Rianne Makkink lebt und arbeitet in Rotterdam – ihre zweite Spielweise ist ein alter Bauenhof auf dem Land, wo sie sich erden kann.

-Die Feldkueche
ein Freundeskreis aus Voralberg laedt allsommerlich zum grossen Feldschmaus in den Bergenzerwald und tischt auf, was die Gegend zu bieten hat. Das schmeckt den Zugereisten wie den Locals.

-Die Kroenung
Blumen im Haar zu tragen war einmal das Erkennungszeichen der Hippies. Fuer die hier gezeigten Maedchen aus Georgien ist es einfach selbst gemachter Schmuck aus ihrer Heimat. Eine Fotostrecke.

-Das Schaufenster
Man macht es hinterm Haus, im Haus und inzwischen auch an vielen anderen verrueckten Orten: Gaertnern kommt einfach nicht aus der Mode. Wir zeigen hilfreiche Dinge fuer Einsteiger und Profis.

-Das Bienenhus
Der Architekt Benedikt Bosch hat im Bregenzerwald einen schlichten, aber einladend-gemuetlichen Neubau realisiert. An der Stelle, wo zuwor das Wochenendhaus seiner Kindheit stand.

-La Passione
Oliven anbauen, kochen oder Theaterdirektor sein: Was di Familie Di Capua tut, das macht sie mit Leidenschaft. Ein Besuch im sueditalienischen Oertchen Bonefro, wo di Oliven wachsen.

-Zug durch die Gemeinde
13 Freunde aus Berlin haben sich den Traum vom Haus am See verwirklicht. In “Sommerhaus, jetzt!” schreibt Oliver Geyer ueber das Abenteuer. Wir praesentieren ein Kapitel aus dem Buch.

White Zinfandel #3: Food Fights. W/—— Projects.

Issue No. 3 / FOOD FIGHTS
FW / 2012

Since our last issue, we’ve observed the convulsions in the Middle East from afar and witnessed up close the incantations against Wall Street. Paired with the explosion of food as culture, with the elevation of our most basic necessity to a luxury good, this issue reflects an idiosyncratic year of massive change.

Haute Food 1 – Milk Eggs Water.

For its second print issue, Haute Food is Milk Eggs Water: three basic ingredients in the kitchen, three elements that symbolize the origins of life as well as three recurring elements in the avant-garde art movement of the early 1900’s.

Haute Food 1‘s spirit is infused with this movement without letting go of its evident obsession with nostalgia, 70’s savvy and particular sense of humor. Haute Food 1 features selected research material as well as original and archival works by invited artists. All contributors were given total freedom to interpret these three elements to their liking.

Haute Food 1 is fruit of the collaboration with:

Elena Page, Marco Braca, Mara Corsino, José Miguel Curet, Olivia Cartmill, Kuba Dabrowski, Lixx Díaz, Alison Dilworth, Miguel Figueroa, Radamés Figueroa, Nancy Gallardo, Roberto Greco, Maria Joao,
Caroline Kan, Nico Krijno, Riccardo Linarello, Rita Lino, Agatha A. Nitecka, Elena Pivetta, Isabella Sabbioni, Chaveli Sifre, Giulia Soldavini, Tatjana Suskic, Serena Toffetti, Lucio Vanotti.

Each copy is individually numbered by hand and is accompanied by an A3 double-sided poster (color or black and white) featuring a collage by Alison Dilworth and photography by Agatha A. Nitecka. Edited by Mara Corsino.
