You Are Here: Art After the Internet. Omar Kholeif (Ed.). Cornerhouse / Space.

You Are Here: Art After the Internet is the first major publication to critically explore both the effects and affects that the Internet has had on contemporary artistic practices.

Responding to an era that has increasingly chosen to dub itself as ‘post-internet’, this collective text traces a potted narrative exploring the relationship of the Internet to art practices from the early millennium to the present day.

The book positions itself as a provocation on the current state of cultural production, relying on first-person accounts from artists, writers and curators as the primary source material.

The book raises urgent questions about how we negotiate the formal, aesthetic and conceptual relationship of art and its effects after the ubiquitous rise of the Internet.

Il pleut by Guillaume Apollinaire. Natalie Czech. Motto Books.

For the series “Il pleut by Guillaume Apollinaire” Natalie Czech invited eight writers – Vanessa Desclaux, Mara Genschel, April Elizabeth Lamm, Ashkan Sepahvand, Oliver Tepel, Jacques Roubaud, Amilcar Packer, and Vincenzo Latronico – to each write a text that contains the same calligram by the French poet, Guillaume Apollinaire (1880 – 1918). Each text is written in the mother tongue of each author (French, German, English, Portugese, Italian). The texts were precisely composed around the calligram, so as to embed it in their very fabric, and thus dissolve its iconicity. Natalie Czech presents these texts as photographs of book pages and re-presents the calligram by marking its component words in the photographs with acrylic paint.

Published on the occasion of the exhibition L’image dans le tapis aux Atelier des Arques, Les Arques, France.

Rogério Duarte – Marginàlia 1. Sophie von Olfers (Ed.). BOM DIA BOA TARDE BOA NOITE

Posted in books, graphic design, illustration on April 4th, 2014


Rogério Duarte – Marginàlia 1

With texts by Rogério Duarte, Narlan Matos Teixeira, Max Jorge Hinderer Cruz, Mariana Castillo Deball, Manuel Raeder English / Portuguese 185 × 230 mm, 
224 pages, softcover ISBN 978-3-943514-18-6

Arguably, Rogério Duarte is “the genius behind the geniuses” (Narlan Mattos) of Brazil’s 1960–70s counter-cultural and avant-garde efforts. Thus, it comes as no surprise that key figures in the fields of design, music, art, and cinema, such as Glauber Rocha, Hélio Oiticica, Gilberto Gil, and Caetano Veloso, have provided the posterity with a vast catalogue of testimonies that leave no doubt as to the crucial role that Rogério played in the emergence of what is known today as the Tropicália movement, or Tropicalism.

Yet, despite the growing interest that the Brazilian counter-culture of that time encountered on the international stage during the past two decades, Rogério’s work has remained almost unknown to a broader public.

‘Marginália 1’ was developed by the designer Manuel Raeder and the artist Mariana Castillo Deball over a period of four years. It is the first in-depth survey of Duarte’s practice, and the first time that a selection of his poems and texts have been translated into English.

GOD DAMMIT!. Kahil Janssens. Möbius Publications.

The book is the result of an intensive quest for the sources of evil in the world of faith. For mankind faith is expected to function as a source of hope, joy of life and consolation. It should guide man on his journey from womb to tomb. Up on closer examination this idea doesn’t agree. Man has become a victim of manipulative techniques, mental as well as physical. Official religions and cults alike attempt to tie men by every possible mean. The more one delves into the records, the clearer it becomes that these activities are executed in the name of a divine being—if it exists at all. This book is an attempt to admit the reader through words and pictures into the labyrinth of methods what gullible victims are subjected to.

MICHELLE GRABNER: I WORK FROM HOME. David Norr, (Ed.). Mousse Publishing.

Posted in art, books on April 3rd, 2014



The reference monograph on the American artist Michelle Grabner, this volume offers an expansive look at an artist whose body of work and sphere of influence continue to gain recognition. Published on the occasion of the the artist’s retrospective at the MOCA Cleveland, the book documents works from the last 20 years, positioning the studio as core to a remarkably diverse output—paintings, drawings, prints, videos, and sculptures. Considering Grabner’s pursuit of art making, criticism, and curating as inextricably linked, this publication seeks to highlight the distinctive values and ideas that drive Grabner’s practice: woking outside of dominant systems, working tirelessly, and working across platforms.

The Body Decides

A pop up book for adults, this catalogue on the work of Franz Erhard Walther sought its inspiration in the artist’s work in order to determine the publication-form that might most appropriately convey the centrality of action to the artist’s oeuvre. The performativity at the heart of Walther’s more than a half century long practice is underscored through the appearance of six brightly coloured elementary pop up forms spread throughout the book.
