Infinite Possibility 1974 – 2014
Monir Shahroudy Farmanfarmaian

Published on the occasion of the first museum survey of mirror works and drawings by Iranian artist Monir Shahroudy Farmanfarmaian (Qazvin, 1924), this book offers a critical and art historical view on a singular body of work produced over a career of more than 40 years.

Essays by curator Suzanne Cotter, cultural historian Shiva Balaghi, and art historian and critic Media Farzin examine Monir’s oeuvre and its development from the 1970s to the present in relation to the decorative and architectural traditions of Islamic art and the cosmopolitan contemporary art world of which she has always been a part. A detailed timeline situates the artist’s personal and artistic trajectory within the broader context of contemporaneous historical, social and cultural events worldwide.

Plassein is a collection of short stories, told through a series of sequential drawings that intertwine to create unsettling, dissonant dreamscapes. The stories observe the forms and textures of the built world and trace their strange, melancholic entanglements.
Set out like a storyboard for a speculative film, with a single frame per page, the images accumulate into fleeting scenes and shifting narratives at once familiar and otherworldly.

About the author
Joji Koyama is a filmmaker, animator and graphic artist. His short films and animations have screened internationally. In 2015 he published his first book of short visual stories Plassein, and an illustrated colouring book Elsewhere, for Penguin books. He is currently working on a film in collaboration with musician and songwriter Tujiko Noriko.

Graphic design: Dan Solbach with Katerina Trakakis

Jean-Luc Manz Notebooks (1989–2014). Julie Enckell Julliard (Ed.). Musée Jenisch, JRP Ringier

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.
