Free Shop Book documents the project Free Shop in Germany, Japan, Poland, Denmark and Norway. It contains interviews with customers and participating shop owners.
Free Shop takes place in an ordinary shop, anything purchased in the shop by any given customer, while Free Shop is performed, is free of charge. There are no signs or other means of information communicating that merchandises, goods, services, etc. in the shop are free of charge. A customer in the shop may not realize that merchandises, goods and/or services have been purchased for free until the counter clerk gives the customer the bill for the purchase, stating the amount of 0. Performed for the first time in 2003 in Bremen, Germany, Free Shop has since been held in Japan, Poland, Denmark and Norway.

Jean-Luc Manz’s paintings, which he has been making since 1977, could be described as geometric abstractions. However, they share very little with the Swiss Concrete art tradition. They refer instead to the practices of John M Armleder and Helmut Federle. Their geometric vocabulary is infused with expressive stances and appropriation, as if they wanted to recreate, through the act of painting, a relationship with the world. Manz’s notebooks, published here for the first time in this 1,000-page volume, prove that his compositions are anchored in a system of correspondence with the art of the past—from Islamic decorative art to Egyptian memories, everyday encounters, and his personal life.

Taking the work of Sanja Iveković as a point of departure to discuss urgent matters in feminism today, Sanja Iveković: Unknown Heroine – A Reader gathers commissioned essays by key feminist voices who contributed to a conference titled ‘23%’*, which was held on the occasion of the exhibition Sanja Iveković: Unknown Heroine, curated by Lina ǅuverović at Calvert 22 Gallery and the South London Gallery (December 2012 – February 2013). The conference took place at the Royal College of Art, London and was organised in collaboration with the Courtauld Institute of Art’s Research Forum.
Sanja Iveković: Unknown Heroine – A Reader is edited by Helena Reckitt, and includes essays by Ivana Bago, Katy Deepwell, Lina ǅuverović, Silvia Eiblmayr, Elisabeth Lebovici, Suzana Milevska and Milica Tomić. Designed by Rafaela Dražić.
This is the first in a new series of publications published by Calvert 22 Foundation.
*The conference title, ‘23%’, was drawn from a research report compiled by the Fawcett Society, the UK’s leading campaign for women’s equality and rights. On average, women in the UK earn 15% less than men. In London, in January 2013, the pay gap stood at 23%.

»Ape Culture« traces the long cultural and scientific obsession with humanity’s closest relatives. In the Western historical representations of modernity, depictions of apes were traditionally used to show the absence of culture. Standing as a liminal figure separating humans and animals, the ape has, since ancient times, played a central role in the narrative of civilisational progress. This book, which appears in conjunction with the exhibition of the same nameseeks, however, to go beyond the mere examination of apes as signifiers of difference. The juxtaposition of artworks with documents taken from popular culture and the history of primatology gives the reader an insight into what the science historian Donna Haraway has termed the »primate order« — a hall of mirrors reflecting the scientific and cultural projections that turned the ape from an instrument of humanity’s self-definition into an integral element in testing out the possibility of reconstructing human »nature«. »Ape Culture« will be shown at the Haus der Kulturen der Welt from 30 April to 6 July 2015.

Window Seat presents a sequence of images by Vancouver photographer Jennilee Marigomen taken in sleepy beach towns in Mexico. Through a series of simple and beautiful gestures, the project both acknowledges the metaphor of photography-as-window and consciously resists reading the world metaphorically. Rather, the photographs show the benefit of careful attention to the overlooked and often ephemeral beauty in our everyday surroundings—suggesting that the world is made up of neglected sites imbedded in the everyday, which a keen sensibility can animate, arrange, and make deeply compelling for the viewer.
With an essay by Nich McElroy.
