GAGARIN
The Artists in their Own Words

is a recent artist’s magazine (°2000), entirely dedicated to thepublication of especially written and unpublished texts by artists whoare now working, anywhere in the world. Each issue contains a number ofartists’ writings, if possible from an equal number of countries. Thetexts are published in their original language and alphabeticalwriting, with unabridged translations in English added. Advertising andvisual material are deliberately kept out. In collaboration with theResearch Centre for Artists’ Publications / Archive for small Press& Communication (ASPC) at the Neues Museum Weserburg in Bremen(Germany), GAGARIN features a supplementary Index of Artists’ Writingspublished world wide. GAGARIN is indexed in Art Biography Modern ABM byCambridge Scientific Abstracts, Oxford, UK. GAGARIN is aimed at thosewho do not tend to wait until everything is accepted and synthesisedand those who are prepared to leave the road to search for stimulatingart and ideas while they are still fresh. GAGARIN does not restrictitself to a particular period or import and runs trough the codes thatare applied in the world of art. Its orientation is artistic,documentary and historical. GAGARIN also aspires to provide an accuratesource of information about the collaborating artists, using their ownwords.

Pierre Leguillon – Le Tapis (Fair Use). WIELS, Roma Publications

Posted in art, Artist Book on February 16th, 2015
Tags: , ,

Le_tapis_Pierre_Leguillon01Le_tapis_Pierre_Leguillon02Le_tapis_Pierre_Leguillon03Distributed on the occasion of the exhibition ‘The Museum of Mistakes: Contemporary Art and Class Struggle’, conceived by Pierre Leguillon and bringing together works he has created over the last fifteen years from reproduced images, this folding brochure/poster continues in this spirit by mimicking the economy of means and autonomy of images Leguillon deploys in his work. It proposes an exhibition model that attempts to foil or declassify the hierarchies of art, as each work is informed by a principle of movement, or even reversibility, and reflects a perpetual process of emitting and receiving information, spurring us to rethink the conditions of the reception of art.

Rossella-Biscotti-02 Rossella-Biscotti-03 Rossella-Biscotti-04 Rossella-Biscotti-05

For her first solo exhibition in Belgium, acclaimed Italian artist Rossella Biscotti draws a trajectory across spaces that evoke important historical processes and links them to the sciences of the mind. This book, published in conjunction with the exhibition, follows this example by interweaving narratives in relation to the concrete and discrete architecture of memory, dreams, and ideas. While revisiting sites of punishment, the gathering of works embodies the ability of the human mind to resist oppression, tracing individual destinies or collective endeavours through a combination of materials, language, and scientific techniques. With a text by Adam Kleinman. Design: Louis Lüthi.

Space for Visual Research. Spector Books
edited by Markus Weisbeck, Mathias Schmitt, Michael Ott

The Space for Visual Research was established at the Bauhaus-University Weimar in 2013 as a workshop and laboratory for experimental research into new graphic, abstract and visual worlds. The Space’s mission is to support the exploratory urge for new aesthetics, in particular by empowering design students to create their own individual imagery. The resulting Space for Visual Research publication is a lab book, a log of visual experiments conducted using physics, chemistry, optics and reproduction technology as starting points for image production. Technical explanations open up possibilities for customized reproductions of each visual experiment presented here, while commissioned interviews and essays as well as a hand-picked bibliography render Space for Visual Research a useful reference tool for visual research generally today.

With texts by Alex Marashian, Liam Gillick, Karl Schawelka and Sophia Gräfe.

Martin Kippenberger . »Du kommst auch noch in Mode« – Plakate von Martin Kippenberger . Steidl

The posters created by Martin Kippenberger (1953-1997) for his own exhibitions represent a core aspect of his multimedia output and artistic vision. The show You too will eventually come into fashion – Posters by Martin Kippenberger therefore reveals an essential slice of Kippenberger’s characteristic, often wildly absurd sense of humor.

The exhibition marks the Museum Folkwang´s acquisition of a comprehensive collection of posters by Martin Kippenberger in 2013 which substantially enhances the existing group of works by the artist held at the museum.

A catalogue is due for release to accompany the show, available from Edition Folkwang/Steidl.

The PROVENCE Summer Reader: After Dark is the second publication of a series of books co-published by Paraguay Press and PROVENCE.

The PROVENCE Summer Reader: After Dark takes it starting point—its body—from the kind of supplementary pocket books that are attached to the summer issues of various empire lifestyle magazines. As the title suggests, this book is a reader that gathers different—not to say heterogenous—material, by authors from diverse—though mainly art-connected— backgrounds, taking over a format known for its slippery, shallow, and entertaining content. Writings, fictions, documents, and poems come along with a suite of illustrations by Siw Umsonst. For a brief moment, this book was going to be a part of PROVENCE’s (pen)ultimate Issue C dedi- cated to Criticism Now. And then … in or out. We recalled the moment in history (was it the mid or the late 90s?), when art magazines not only featured sec- tions with the best of the year, but also with the worst shows and artists of the year. It was Richard Pryor, according to Lane Relyea, who stated: “I never met any- body who said when they were a kid, I wanna grow up and be a critic.” Soon the title shifted to Dark Matter, which turned criticism to social relations, but it echoed other engagements and expectations. As writing eludes the purposes of criticism, and comes to favor stories, emotions, and open air over judg- ment and in-depth studies, it was eventually replaced by After Dark. After Dark is also a series of computer screensaver software introduced in 1989 by Berkeley Systems for the Apple Macintosh, and for Microsoft Windows in 1991. It is—or was—a means to avoid switching your computer off and to maintain its functionality while not at work, keeping the system running. With the invention of laptops sleep mode in the late 90s, which made turning devices off unnecessary, the then famous Aquatic Realm, Flying Toasters, and Slide Show screensavers vanished. Many of the contributions to this Summer Reader attempt to engage a problem of their own or perform their authors’ participation in the networked, social, and communicational spaces that are shared with cul- tural production at large. They bear witness to nights of labor turned into proletarian days—even though they were written for a book supposed to be read un- der the sun. Or (maybe) exactly because of that: who would dare to take a tablet or a laptop to the beach?
