Treating of matters is a collaborative project which aims to investigate how history influences our practice as designers.

It was produced in London, at the Royal College of Art’s Hockney Gallery. Product designers Will Shannon and Kieren Jones helped transform the gallery into an hybrid exhibition-production space that allowed the public to witness first hand the several stages in the making of a publication. Risograph was the printing technology of choice, for its cost efficiency in small print runs (250 copies) and user friendliness.

With works by Pedro Cid Proença, David Crowley, Alexandre Dumas de Rauly, Sara De Bondt, Sophie Demay, Afonso Duarte, Marine Duroselle, Sophie Dutton, Jules Estèves, Mick Farren, Maël Fournier-Comte, Lola Halifa-Legrand, Angelina Li, Will Holder, Richard Hollis, Yi Lin Juliana Ong, Savage Pencil, François Rappo, Adrian Rifkin, Marsha Rowe, Michel Wlassikoff.

On Friday, 29th of October, ‘This Week’ will be at Motto in Berlin, starting at 7pm.
We officially launch Issue #2 ‘Quarter Report I – Men With Ties’ by Alon Levin. There will be short presentations by each artist of all 3 issues made so far.

They say print and newspaper are an obsolete and dying form of media.
This Week is an art paper reanimating elements of the press. Reflecting on the conditions of this traditional industry This Week uses and abuses forms and issues of newspapers. Each issue is made by a different artist.
So far Felix Weigand and Kasper Andreasen have dealt with headlines and comic strips. ‘Quarter Report I – Men With Ties’ is the title for Alon Levins new issue of This Week.

The Last Dot Dot Dot
02.11.2010, 6pm
Forde, Geneva

20. in which Dot Dot Dot tries—finally—to be as direct
as possible about what it’s come to stand for and what it
thinks it’s gonna do about it.

The journal with the never-ending title (and always-changing subtitle) announces its end (with a full stop). Stuart Bailey and David Reinfurt from Dexter Sinister invite you to mourn the twentieth and final Dot Dot Dot Magazine at Forde. Drinks will be served and a film projected.

La revue au titre sans fin (et au sous-titre changeant) annonce sa fin (point final). Stuart Bailey et David Reinfurt de Dexter Sinister vous invitent à venir porter le deuil du vingtième et ultime numéro de Dot Dot Dot Magazine à Forde. Des verres seront servis, un film sera projeté.
