Jon Rafman: Nine Eyes. New Documents.

In The Nine Eyes of Google Street View (2008–), Jon Rafman employs a new approach to the strategy of artistic appropriation, extracting screenshots from Google Street View’s vast online archive to create singular photographs that range from the lyrical to the abject. Selected from the larger collection of images that comprise his ever-expanding project, the images in this volume illuminate in multiple dimensions our mutually constitutive relationship with images and testify to the importance of Nine Eyes in an increasingly codified, image-saturated world.

Rafman’s photographs appear alongside essays on the work by editor Kate Steinmann, Joanne McNeil, Sohrab Mohebbi, and Gabrielle Moser, as well as a text by the artist himself, written in collaboration with Sandra Rafman.

Edited by Kate Steinmann. Designed by The Future.

Railway Flora. Ernesto Schick.
Third Edition published by Florette and Humboldt Books.

Schick devoted a decade of his life (1969-1978) to observing, classifying and illustrating the wild vegetation that infests the grounds of the international railway marshalling yard in Chiasso. First published in 1980, Railway Flora has maintained all its original charm. Its bond with the territory and with the history of one of the symbols of its economic development, the painstaking research of an all but common man and his scrutiny of the complex relationship between human beings and their environment offer a testimony which remains as intriguing as it ever was.
The new edition features writings and original illustrations by the author, as well scientific updates by Nicola Schoenenberger and a literary contribution by the poet Fabio Pusterla.

Bellissima: Italy and High Fashion 1945-1968 presents the complex and ever-changing story of Italian fashion through a contemporary lens. It is a symphonic account of the many creative components that continue to interact and shape the success and enormous appeal of the “Made in Italy” brand. This catalog showcases the amazing garments chosen for the exhibition and designed by creators such as Simonetta, Valentino, Roberto Capucci, Irene Galitzine, among many others: the spectacular dresses that illuminated ball rooms and theater galas, as well as cocktail dresses of restrained elegance or tantalizing embellishments inspired by fantasized designs or the leading postwar art movements – the Zero Group, Pop art and Op art.

Alexandra Leykauf. Roma Publications @ Motto Berlin. 17.03.2016

Alexandra Leykauf, in conversation with Dominikus Müller about her new book published by Roma Publications
from 7pm

Book excerpt:
Caroline Soyez Petithomme: … the reproduction of your own work is always at stake, and even more so here in the context of the current book: an artist’s book and an autonomous work playing with the publication format as opposed to a conventional exhibition catalogue or a classical artist’s monograph. Was this a way for you to ‘get around’ the reproduction of your works?

Alexandra Leykauf: … I consider installation views not only as documents of a past situation, but as something like shards, pieces of a whole — to stay with the metaphor of the kaleidoscope you introduced. You’ve suggested earlier that there is an “elsewhere” that arises within the various layers of reproduction in my work; maybe here that’s located between the pages of this book.

CSP: And is it also a way to mirror your own process of creation — where the book remains the initial vehicle and source of your work, here to return again as a form, as in the current book …?

AL: … yes, at the end of our conversation we return to the book, but also to the beginning: an observation of the act of looking and of our own position towards that at which we look.

Infrastructure Canada Book Presentation, Daniel Young & Christian Giroux, with graphic designer Katja Gretzinger, interviewed by AA Bronson @ Motto Berlin 14.03.16

infrastructurecanada_danielyoung_motto_1

Bridges, tunnels, pipelines, hydroelectric lines, public transit, dams, ports, navigational aids for waterways and
airspace, communication towers—infrastructure is the foundation of our economy and society. Filmed using a
35mm motion picture camera, this project provides a core sample of infrastructure interventions in Canada’s
landscape. Drawing on statistical information on expenditures since 1947 in order to proportionally represent
investment in different sectors, the artists chose these one hundred objects and locations as a subset reflecting diversity
of region and type. Presented in random order, they function as a rigorous dérive through nodes in the network of a material body that can be thought of as comprising a single piece of architecture.

Project book includes essays by Jonathan Shaughnessy, Richard William Hill, and Carlotta Daró
