Graphic Design, Exhibiting, Curating. Giorgio Camuffo & Maddalena Dalla Mura. Bozen Bolzano University Press.

In recent years, graphic designers have become increasingly interested and engaged in the exhibition context as a space of production, mediation and dissemination. In June 2012, the international conference Graphic Design, Exhibiting, Curating brought together a number of graphic designers, curators and critics engaged in exhibition-making and curating. The proceedings feature contributions by Brave New Alps, Charlotte Cheetham (Manystuff.org), Mieke Gerritzen (Museum of the Image, Breda), Lungomare/Lupo&Burtscher, Prem Krishnamurthy (Project Projects), and Jon Sueda, as well as extracts from the discussions that followed each panel.

DADALENIN. Rainer Ganahl & Johan F. Hartle. Edition Taube.

DADALENIN reconstructs and speculates about how Dada and Lenin had more in common than is usually assumed. The book points to some of the tragicomic aspects of their parallel and overlapping artistic and political histories in order to question the unfulfilled legacy of the avant-garde.

In Rainer Ganahl’s voluminous series of works DADA and Lenin are abundant sources of historical imagination. To dive into the historical situation Ganahl uses a variety of artistic media and techniques––ranging from animation movies to theatre performances, from ink drawings to bronze sculptures, departing from a number of historical details and catch phrases, from the no-man’s land between porn, terror and the history of the avant-gardes.

Co-editor Johan F. Hartle’s text situates DADALENIN in the development of Rainer Ganahl’s work and reconstructs it in the context of current debates on the artistic and political avant-garde. DADALENIN thus appears as a reflection of numerous key motifs of contemporary cultural theory, indirectly haunting us in all kinds of monstrous alliances.

Edited by Rainer Ganahl and Johan F. Hartle
With contributions by Boris Groys and Jenny Borland
