Panorama (The Right of View), Istanbul 2010. Amt _ project (ed.) Sputnik Editions

panoramapanorama 3panorama 5 panorama 4 panorama 2 panorama 1

A panorama of the city, a public platform, a dysfunctional lookout, blocking the actual view but confronting the viewer with textual observations of the city and the condition of the view in Istanbul, „Panorama (The Right of View)“ was a traveling attraction and an architectonic sculpture. After standing in Kadiköy, on the Asian shore from october-december 2010, looking across the Bosporus onto the city, it was moved to Eminönü for the spring of 2011, into the middle of the city, on the shore of the Golden Horn, next to the Galata bridge, the Spice Bazaar and the New Mosque.
The publication documents the project and presents the full length of the panorama’s text panel in a 3,5 meter printed leporello.

About author: Andreas Fogarasi (born 1977 in Vienna), studied architecture and fine arts in Vienna and Paris, lives in Vienna. His work has been exhibited widely, including Museo Tamayo, Mexico City; GfZK Museum of Contemporary Art, Leipzig, Museum Haus Konstruktiv, Zürich; Grazer Kunstverein; Mücsarnok Budapest; Kunstverein Düsseldorf; Museo Reina Sofia, Madrid; MSU, Zagreb; Georg Kargl Fine Arts, Vienna; Lombard-Freid Projects, New York; Ludwig Forum, Aachen; Palais de Toyko, Paris and at the 52nd Biennale di Venezia 2007, where he was awarded the Golden Lion for best national participation. In his works, Fogarasi uses forms of display that are reminiscent of minimalism and conceptual art to explore questions of space and representation. Located between documentary and sculptural practice he critically ana- lyses the aestheticization and economization of urban space and the role of architecture and culture in con- temporary society. Incorporating video, sculpture and installation in wide-sweeping discursive webs, Fogarasi deals with fault lines in historiography, imagineering and cultural identities. Solo exhibitions (selection): GfzK. Museum of Contemporary Art, Leipzig; Museum Haus Konstruktiv, Zurich (2014); Galerie Cortex Athletico, Paris (2013); Prefix Institute of Contemporary Art, Toronto; Trafó, Budapest (2012); Museo Reina Sofia, Madrid; CAAC, Sevilla (2011); Ludwig Forum, Aachen; Georg Kargl Fine Arts, Vienna (2010); MAK, Vienna; Ernst Museum, Budapest; Lombard Freid- Projects, New York (2008).

Yasutaka Kojima’s Coming back compiles a series of photographs of cityscapes in Tokyo since 2008. Kojima’s beautiful selection of photographs, which shift effortlessly between monochrome and colour, and past and present, observe cities existing in a time during which our identity and subjectively has been somewhat lost in the urban environment, evoking a sense of evanescence. This beautiful publication arrives courtesy of the amazing Superlabo (Tokyo).

DNA Semantics. Gregor Mobius (ed.)

DNADNA2DNA1DNA3DNA5 DNA4

The “DNA Semantics” is a book about an interpretation of DNA/RNA as visual structures with specific formal properties and relationships. Instead of existing alphabet representation U, C, A, G and T, all the
bases are expressed as five discrete values of the gray-scale: T=white, G= light gray, A= gray, C= dark gray and U= black. Arranged in 3×4 matrices DNA strands as linear structures consisting of alphabet letters are converted in 2D images with distinct visual properties. In this representation we could learn more about DNA/RNA, not only as biological(functional) structures but also as a specific language that
can be expressed visually.

First edition. 2015

Gregor Mobius is a theoretician of languages that are expressed visually. His early work was in the field of Graph Theory developing an algorithm for visual representation of all planar and regular graphs. As a Fulbright scholar he received master of Science in Visual Studies at MIT with the paper “Discrete Visual Structure – Elements of Visual Grammar” (1984). A few years later, based on his thesis paper, Mobius proposed a specific representation of DNA and RNA that converts linear alphabet DNA structure into a 2D image. This work was presented to the public at the exhibition Gene(sis) that traveled through some West Coast universities: Washington University(2002), University of California, Berkeley (2003) and University of Minnesota, Minneapolis (2004). It is now for the first time presented in a comprehensive way in the book “DNA Semantics”.
