100 paintings, the new publication by the LA based artist Michael Manning, features a selection of 100 digital drawings selected from four distinct series of paintings.

The use of this medium started with Manning’s regular contribution to phone-arts.net, a website dedicated to art made with smartphones, then continuously explored through many software’s possibilities, thanks to Microsoft 8 operating system and its touchscreen interface, together with FreshPaint, a finger painting app. The book features an essay by Brian Droitcour on the mobile practice of the Microsoft Painting series, a contribution by Gene McHugh, who summarizes the influence of Southern California sun on Manning’s palette, and the Amphibious Materiality essay, by Peter Amdam where he describes the gooeyness in Wild Fusion gestural affectivity. Finally, as Manning says in conversation with Lucy Chinen: “It’s like coconut bath wash, sandy hair, palm tree sunset vaped out pelican art lol”.

EDITO
SPANISH

Todas las Fiestas del Ayer
11 de enero – 28 de marzo de 2016
La resaca es un estado alterado, tan absorbente y alucinante como la embriaguez. Ambivalente e impredecible, puede producir depresión u optimismo irracional; puede liberarnos del temor y prolongar la euforia de una celebración, o simplemente aumentar la paranoia de Esta Inminente Fatalidad. A medida en que el mundo se vuelve cada vez más injusto, intolerante y amnésico, abordaremos preocupaciones relacionadas con los giros cada vez más conservadores de nuestras sociedades por medio de múltiples aproximaciones a los recuerdos borrosos de las fiestas del ayer.
Con esta edición celebramos un año de supervivencia en el mundo editorial independiente, permitiéndonos una cierta complacencia en este estado alterado de euforia culpable, anticipando el inevitable fracaso de algunos de nuestros planes y utilizando la resaca como metáfora de la desilusión generada por los ideales rotos. Si, como evoca Clarice Lispector, “La belleza de Brasilia son sus estatuas invisibles”, queremos enfatizar precisamente en el aspecto más real de la utopía: su dimensión imaginaria.
A través de una variedad de voces, historias y conversaciones que reflejan este bucle mental de placer y ansiedad, esta edición discutirá las posibles motivaciones que harán que valga la pena la próxima celebración, así nos produzca resaca una y otra vez.

EDITO
ENGLISH

All Yesterday’s Parties
January 18 — March 28, 2016
The hangover is an altered state, as absorbing and mind-bending as drunkenness. Ambivalent and unpredictable, it may depress you or, on the contrary, infuse you with irrational optimism. It can free you from fear, prolonging the euphoria of a celebration, or it might just increase the paranoia of this impending doom. As the world becomes increasingly more unjust, intolerant, and amnesiac we’ll address current concerns related to the conservative turn of society by means of manifold approaches to the hazy memories of yesterday’s parties.
With this issue, the magazine celebrates one year of survival in independent publishing by reveling on this altered state of guilty euphoria, anticipating the inescapable failure of some of its future plans–using the hangover as a metaphor for the disillusion brought by broken ideals. If, as Clarice Lispector evoked, “The beauty of Brasilia is its invisible statues”, we will emphasize the imaginary dimension of utopia, which is by definition it’s most real aspect.
Through a variety of voices, tales, and conversations reflecting on this mental loop of pleasure/ withdrawal the issue will discuss the possible drives that make the next celebration still worth it, may it have us wake up hung-over, time and again.

This book titled ‘The Cure’ is edited by the three curators Benjamin Jaubert, Sofie Van Loo and Stefaan Willems who programmed the year 2015 in Komplot. This book is the result of a collaboration in three chapters : ‘There Is No Cure’, ‘The Rape – Stiff Hip Gait – The Catwalk’ and ‘Passion and Romance’. This book is the affirmation of three subjectivities through their choices and thematics. The designers Uberknackig put together the contributions of artists, thinkers and poets invited by the curators in a kind of spiritual user guide like the one you find in the drawer of your hotel room to coach you through the night…

Reasons to Be Cheerful by Chloë Delanghe deals with the problematic of portraiture and the supposed weight of image making. The book is a fragmented portrait of the artist’s mother Sally Kovacsik. The first chapter, composed of portraits made by Sally’s husband Geert Delanghe, shows her just before and after childbirth. The second chapter, on the contrary, juxtaposes family portraits with objects, rooms, letters and notes. Each image of the book functions as contained gestures, seeking both remoteness and closeness. Moreover, photographs of Welsh castles repeat this conflicting movement. Reasons to be Cheerful is a disorientation of images, a fragmented portrait.

———————————————

Nicola Ratti holds a rich history in the world of experimental and minimalist composition, having released music under his own name on labels such as Kning Disk, Anticipate, Preservation, Holidays, and Senufo Editions and in recent times concentrating his energy into his collaborative project ‘Bellows’, work which has seen the light thanks to Entr’acte Records and most recently Boomkat Editions. His latest solo work ‘Pressure Loss’ finds Ratti at a potential turning point in his musical career, exploring rhythm and tonality with a new vigour, in a way which embraces the fluid and consistently evolving modern world of electronic music, yet still references a history of electronics, limiting his sound palette to work only using the Serge and ARP Modular Synthesizer.

Bass, rhythm and melody, those basic ingredients of musical composition, are always present throughout the 8 compositions Ratti presents here, although it is almost like this balance was only briefly explained to someone who had never heard a conventional music piece before and was then left alone to improvise with the recipe with deep curiosity. A devastating pulse runs throughout, acting as a basin for a world of strange syncopated rhythms caught amid sonar blips, ghostly serrated hi-hats and dripping stalactites. The fluttering melodies that creep around the compositions’ edges sound like a tentative and childlike version of grime’s simple but visceral paranoid hooks.

Jon Rafman: Nine Eyes. New Documents.

nineeyes_jonrafman_newdocuments_motto_1nineeyes_jonrafman_newdocuments_motto_2nineeyes_jonrafman_newdocuments_motto_3nineeyes_jonrafman_newdocuments_motto_4nineeyes_jonrafman_newdocuments_motto_5nineeyes_jonrafman_newdocuments_motto_6nineeyes_jonrafman_newdocuments_motto_7 nineeyes_jonrafman_newdocuments_motto_8nineeyes_jonrafman_newdocuments_motto_10

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.
