biographical landscapes of new zagreb. Claudia Bosse (Ed.) Cheap Method Edition – Motto Books & theatercombinat.

New Zagreb. The Museum of Contemporary Art (MSU), its space, collection and environment, and the unique concept of its urbanism were the starting points of the artistic research project called Biographical Landscapes of New Zagreb by Claudia Bosse, and was conceived through field research, including the analysis of actual experiences of urbanism in New Zagreb based on the memories and lifestyles of its inhabitants.

Invited by EUROKAZ and MSU to develop a unique project for the museum and its surroundings, Claudia Bosse and Günther Auer collaborated on visiting living spaces (apartments) in different urban areas of New Zagreb in December 2011. In March 2012, they interviewed the inhabitants on issues such as democracy, capitalism and identity. These experiences resulted in the research project which became part of the museum’s live installation, and an art-transfer between the museum and private living spaces: Biographical landscapes of New Zagreb.

Carlos Bunga

This publication documents the special commission made for the Sonae/Serralves Project in 2012 for which the artist created a very large structure for the entrance hall of the Serralves Museum emphasizing the space’s verticality and functionality, in dialogue with Álvaro Siza’s architecture. Richly illustrated with Bunga’s projects in other artistic contexts ― Pinacoteca do Estado de São Paulo (São Paulo, Brazil), Hammer Museum (Los Angeles, EUA), 29th São Paulo Biennial, Miami Art Museum (Miami, EUA), Krome Gallery (Berlin, Germany), Center for Curatorial Studies (New York, USA), Manifesta 5 (San Sebastián, Spain), among others ― the book features texts by João Fernandes and Ricardo Nicolau (exhibition curators), Adam Budak (curator at the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Washington D.C.), Marta Jecu (writer and researcher at CICANT Institute, Universidade Lusófona, Lisbon) and an interview conducted by María Inez Rodríguez (former chief curator at Museo Universitario de Arte Contemporáneo in Mexico City) offering comprehensive insights into Carlos Bunga’s work.

Zeitungsfotos / Newspaper Photographs. Thomas Ruff. Bookhorse.

Between 1981 and 1991 Thomas Ruff collected photographs from German newspapers and weeklies, amassing an archive of 2500 images. In 1990 and 1991 he selected 400 images from it, according to entirely subjective criteria, photographed them without captions, and had them reproduced as color prints in twice their original size.
For this book, Thomas Ruff re-photographed the templates of the Zeitungsfotos series so they could be reproduced in black-and-white on a colored background.

Desierto #3

28º Celsius is the temperature at which protection becomes superfluous. It is also the temperature at which swimming pools are acclimatized. Within the limits of this hygrothermal comfort zone, we do not require the intervention of our body’s thermoregulatory mechanisms nor that of any external artificial thermal controls in order to feel pleasantly comfortable while carrying out a sedentary activity without clothing. 28º Celsius is thus the temperature at which clothing can disappear, just as architecture could.

VELE.Tobias Zielony. Spector Books.

“Le Vele di Scampia” is a futuristic housing estate in northern Naples and a Camorra battlefield. Conceived by Francesco di Salvo in the late seventies and widely recognised for their urbanistic, “Le Vele” (The Sails) were squatted by mafia families even before completion. Today the building complex is a symbol of the Camorra’s power in the Naples region and a key centre of European drug trafficking. Matteo Garrone shot his movie “Gomorra” based on the Novel by Roberto Saviano on the site in 2008. Tobias Zielony’s film “Le Vele di Scampia” from 2009 originates in this very place. Seven thousand single images, shot at night with a digital single-lens reflex camera, are used to create nine minutes of animation film. The book “Vele” is based on this animation film with an selection of 287 single images.

„Le Vele di Scampia“ ist eine futuristische Wohnsiedlung im Norden von Neapel und ein Schauplatz des Camorra- Krieges. Ende der 1970er Jahre von Francesco di Salvo entworfen und ihrer städtebaulichen Struktur wegen weithin beachtet wurden „Le Vele“ (Die Segel) schon vor ihrer Fertigstellung von Familien aus dem Mafia-Umfeld besetzt. Heute ist der Gebäudekomplex einer der größten Drogenumschlagplätze Europas und ein Symbol für die Macht der Camorra in der Region Neapel. 2008 drehte Matteo Garrone hier seinen Kinofilm „Gomorra“ nach dem Roman von Roberto Saviano. Tobias Zielonys Film „Le Vele di Scampia“ entstand 2009 am gleichen Ort. 7.000 Einzelbilder, mit einer digitalen Spiegelreflexkamera bei Nacht aufgenommen, sind zu einem neunminütigen Animationsfilm montiert, der in seinem Schnitt und seiner Motivik an frühe Stummfilme erinnert. Das Buch „Vele“ basiert auf diesem Animationsfilm und zeigt eine Auswahl von 287 Bildern.

Mirrors And Others. A. Schulze. Spector Books.

In 2011, Andreas Schulze lived in Paris thanks to a research grant. At some point, he visited the Louvre, let himself be swept up by the stream of tourists, looked at pictures, met an old friend and started to photograph his series “Louvre”. A reflection on the nature of image production in front of images, whose significance is granted by virtue of the famous exhibition location. In “Text” he writes about the feeling of stumbling around between images of torture, tenderness and all the humorous pic- tures in between. In the chapter “Image” he takes over the stage direction: He de-contextualizes media images in order to pair them in new groups of two. He develops his own grammar promoting patterns and forms from one page to the next. A visual narrative flow emerges with unexpected turns that reformulates the question of the origin of images.

/

Andreas Schulze hielt sich 2011 mit einem Stipendium in Paris auf. Irgendwann besuchte er den Louvre, ließ sich vom Strom der Touristen mitreißen, schaute sich Bilder an, traf einen alten Freund und begann seine Serie „Louvre“ zu fotografieren. Eine Reflexion zum Bildermachen vor Bildern, deren Bedeutung durch den berühmten Ausstellungsort verbürgt ist. In „Text“ schreibt er, wie es sich anfühlt, zwischen Folterbildern, Zärtlichkeitsbildern und all den dazwischenliegenden Witzbildern herumzustolpern. Im Kapitel „Image“ übernimmt er die Regie: Er dekontextualisiert Medienbilder, um sie zu Bildpaaren zu sortieren. Er entwickelt eine eigene Grammatik, die Muster und Formen von einer Seite zur nächsten vorantreibt. Es entsteht ein visueller Erzählfluss mit unerwarteten Wendungen, der die Frage nach der Herkunft der Bilder neu stellt.
