Glotzt nicht so romantisch! On Extralegal Space in Belgrade. Dubravka Sekulic

In the extra-territory of the Belgrade roof extensions, things are not quite what they appear to be at first glance. This book, which starts from the enigmatic extensions of the so-called Russian Pavilions, scrutinizes this extra-territory. Not only are the pavilions not Russian, but more importantly the act of extending them in the 2000s follows particular shady negotiations between inhabitants, developers and municipal authorities, which placed the extensions beyond simple (il)legality.
“Glotzt Nicht so Romantisch!” delves into the political and legal origins of this extra-territory, through which the housing policy of socialist Yugoslavia is traced, during the 1990s with property turning from “ours” into “mine”, and the 2000s when the attitude of transgressing urban regulations became the norm, which explains much of the vast extra-legal urban interventions that shape the city today.

Parallel Presents – The Art of Pierre Huyghe. Amelia Barikin. The MIT Press

Parallel Presents – The Art of Pierre Huyghe. Amelia Barikin

Over the past two decades, French artist Pierre Huyghe has produced an extraordinary body of work in constant dialogue with temporality. Investigating the possibility of a hypothetical mode of timekeeping–“parallel presents”– Huyghe has researched the architecture of the incomplete, directed a puppet opera, founded a temporary school, established a pirate television station, staged celebrations, scripted scenarios, and journeyed to Antarctica in search of a mythological penguin. In this first book-length art historical examination of Huyghe and his work, Amelia Barikin traces the artist’s continual negotiation with the time codes of contemporary society. Offering detailed analyses of Huyghe’s works and drawing on extensive interviews with Huyghe and his associates, Barikin finds in Huyghe’s projects an alternate way of thinking about history–a “topological historicity” that deprograms (or reprograms) temporal formats.

Another Earth Catalog. Fabian Reimann

Posted in art, books, distribution, history, photography on December 24th, 2012
Tags: , , , , ,

Fabian Reimann uses the „Whole Earth Catalog“, first published in 1968 as a concise reference of tools for the improvement of the world and the self, as the starting point for the final issue of his own, visual-essay style Egozine „freeman’s journal“, now in its tenth year. His „Another Earth Catalog“, only interrupted once by a personal essay, consists of a continuous stream of images: reproductions of the Utopian visions of the late 1960s — including not only material published in the „Whole Earth Catalog“, but also of other visionary projects from the Cold War period and the dawn of Postmodernism. Fabian Reimann loosely maintains the five categories of the „Catalog“ (Understanding Whole Systems, Shelter and Land Use, Industry and Craft, Communications, Community, Nomadics and Learning) and connects the visions of the late 1960s with current images that show developments which can be traced back to the fantasies of these earlier times.

Discipline #2

Tags: , , , , , , , ,

Discipline is a Melbourne-based contemporary art journal. It has a focus on longer, research-based essays, interviews and artist pages.

While based and published in Melbourne, the writers and artists who have contributed to Discipline are both local and international. In presenting longer-form essays, the journal aims to ground a new body of sustained intellectual writing about contemporary art that does not merely fall back on the crutch of ʻpluralityʼ as a means for theorising art after postmodernism and globalisation.
