Antonia Hirsch (ed.) in conversations with and reproduced texts by Theodor Adorno, Lorna Brown, Daniel Colucciello Barber, Elena Filipovic, François Laruelle, Olaf Nicolai, Lisa Robertson, Ana Teixeira Pinto, and Wolfgang Winkler.

Expanding from the exhibition Negative Space, this lateral publication of seven conversations and reprinted texts is a project in its own right to consider the space between and around subjects and objects.

Antonia Hirsch’s practice testifies to a long-standing engagement with the quantitative, spatial and syntactic systems that structure an understanding of our universe. The opposite of chaos, cosmos can be defined as a complex and organized system: the ordered universe. Hirsch’s work often relates these ordering structures to embodied and visual experience, considering how the equivocal and often ideological nature of these representational systems is expressed through a level of abstraction.

Rareness of Everyday Being. Ivana Palečková. Štokovec. Slovak / English.

Graphic designer Ivana Palečková was born exactly seven days before the Velvet Revolution. She doesnʼt incline to nostalgia or retro. Despite this fact, she choses to work with the “classic” 35mm color negative film. She uses her mobile phone mostly for phone calls. This book is a selection from a large photographic archive of this young artist who sees taking photos of her closest surroundings, visited places and situations around her as a natural addition to creative life of a graphic designer. Without aspiring to make it as a photographer. The artist who works as a graphic designer has put together a visual essay whose words (photographs) can be taken apart and “reassembled” by readers according to their taste. The readers create new sentences of their own (photographic diptychs and triptychs).

Stasis is the first publication by artist duo Jessika Thörnqvist and Kim Ramberghaug and is made up of a selection of images from the period between 2011 and 2015. It contains paradoxical moments of change and transition when the world and its things are not given, but appear more ambiguously – in their making or dissolution. Capturing moments when light not only illuminates, but itself becomes presence – as reflection, mist, shimmer, haze, shadow and spectra – this literal photography documents a collection of deflected gazes. Instead of being presented as facts to be accepted, these images could rather be characterized as traces of looking away – looking away at the coloured shadow on the wall, or keeping the head turned to the angle at which the sunspot stays in view.

Performed as negation of habitual patterns of attention and perception, these exercises are done with succinct gestural eloquence so that the most transient perceptual objects are approached in a noncoercive relation. The photos in Stasis convey whole experiences of emphemeral phenomenality where reality is suspended, and replaced by something more immediate and sensuous. As Rei Terada (2009) has described, enforcement of the right to look away coincides with a deeply ethical position. The absence of grammar for some feelings reflects a prevailing, and deeply internalized, unfreedom, the alleviation of which only happen on the edge of the aesthetic.

100 paintings, the new publication by the LA based artist Michael Manning, features a selection of 100 digital drawings selected from four distinct series of paintings.

The use of this medium started with Manning’s regular contribution to phone-arts.net, a website dedicated to art made with smartphones, then continuously explored through many software’s possibilities, thanks to Microsoft 8 operating system and its touchscreen interface, together with FreshPaint, a finger painting app. The book features an essay by Brian Droitcour on the mobile practice of the Microsoft Painting series, a contribution by Gene McHugh, who summarizes the influence of Southern California sun on Manning’s palette, and the Amphibious Materiality essay, by Peter Amdam where he describes the gooeyness in Wild Fusion gestural affectivity. Finally, as Manning says in conversation with Lucy Chinen: “It’s like coconut bath wash, sandy hair, palm tree sunset vaped out pelican art lol”.

EDITO

Todas las Fiestas del Ayer
11 de enero – 28 de marzo de 2016
La resaca es un estado alterado, tan absorbente y alucinante como la embriaguez. Ambivalente e impredecible, puede producir depresión u optimismo irracional; puede liberarnos del temor y prolongar la euforia de una celebración, o simplemente aumentar la paranoia de Esta Inminente Fatalidad. A medida en que el mundo se vuelve cada vez más injusto, intolerante y amnésico, abordaremos preocupaciones relacionadas con los giros cada vez más conservadores de nuestras sociedades por medio de múltiples aproximaciones a los recuerdos borrosos de las fiestas del ayer.
Con esta edición celebramos un año de supervivencia en el mundo editorial independiente, permitiéndonos una cierta complacencia en este estado alterado de euforia culpable, anticipando el inevitable fracaso de algunos de nuestros planes y utilizando la resaca como metáfora de la desilusión generada por los ideales rotos. Si, como evoca Clarice Lispector, “La belleza de Brasilia son sus estatuas invisibles”, queremos enfatizar precisamente en el aspecto más real de la utopía: su dimensión imaginaria.
A través de una variedad de voces, historias y conversaciones que reflejan este bucle mental de placer y ansiedad, esta edición discutirá las posibles motivaciones que harán que valga la pena la próxima celebración, así nos produzca resaca una y otra vez.

EDITO
ENGLISH

All Yesterday’s Parties
January 18 — March 28, 2016
The hangover is an altered state, as absorbing and mind-bending as drunkenness. Ambivalent and unpredictable, it may depress you or, on the contrary, infuse you with irrational optimism. It can free you from fear, prolonging the euphoria of a celebration, or it might just increase the paranoia of this impending doom. As the world becomes increasingly more unjust, intolerant, and amnesiac we’ll address current concerns related to the conservative turn of society by means of manifold approaches to the hazy memories of yesterday’s parties.
With this issue, the magazine celebrates one year of survival in independent publishing by reveling on this altered state of guilty euphoria, anticipating the inescapable failure of some of its future plans–using the hangover as a metaphor for the disillusion brought by broken ideals. If, as Clarice Lispector evoked, “The beauty of Brasilia is its invisible statues”, we will emphasize the imaginary dimension of utopia, which is by definition it’s most real aspect.
Through a variety of voices, tales, and conversations reflecting on this mental loop of pleasure/ withdrawal the issue will discuss the possible drives that make the next celebration still worth it, may it have us wake up hung-over, time and again.
