Palpable Language? Kasper Andreasen, Achim Lengerer & Annette Stahmer @ Motto Berlin. 3.12.2012
An evening with presentations and talks by Kasper Andreasen, Achim Lengerer and Annette Stahmer on Monday, December 3rd, 2012, 19 hours at Motto Berlin. The evening will be centered around 3 publications that investigate authorship and the materiality of language:
“Parole #2: Phonetic Skin / Phonetische Haut” (edited by Annette Stahmer) is the second issue of a series of publications investigating the materiality of language. It is concerned with skin and its relation to language. The term “skin” is used here as a metaphor. It represents the surface, the protective sheath of not only the human but also of other “bodies” like the walls of a house, a product’s packaging, the earth’s surface, and so on. Skin describes the boundary between within and without, and is simultaneously a sensitive instrument for communication, directing external information inwards, as well as outwardly expressing inner states. “Phonetic Skin” is a poetic term serving as a starting point for a discussion on the connection between communication/language and skin.

Weiss.
“Hope to Hear From You” (edited by Kasper Andreasen) is an artists’ publication where the contributors made text-based drawings inspired by a collection of misleading emails. Using the specific qualities of waterless offset, these texts were etched directly into the printing plates that were used to produce the book. The pages show how the gesture writing is closely related to authorship, and that this position is an act of mimicry.
With contributions by: Geela Eden, Johannes Markus Frerichs, Martha Gloyer, Ada Grull, Alice Kuczminski, Alexander Kurzhöfer, Marc André Offenhammer, Gönül Salgin, Hagen Verleger, Marina Veselova.
“Scripting” is a publication series that collaborates with artists, writers, graphic-designers, performers as well as publishers – all of which are working with the formats of “script” and “text” within their processes of production. The latest issue #27 Fragile Exhibition (edited by Achim Lengerer) explores the tentative and poetic relationship of objects and their translation into the printed form.
