Taking the work of Sanja Iveković as a point of departure to discuss urgent matters in feminism today, Sanja Iveković: Unknown Heroine – A Reader gathers commissioned essays by key feminist voices who contributed to a conference titled ‘23%’*, which was held on the occasion of the exhibition Sanja Iveković: Unknown Heroine, curated by Lina Džuverović at Calvert 22 Gallery and the South London Gallery (December 2012 – February 2013). The conference took place at the Royal College of Art, London and was organised in collaboration with the Courtauld Institute of Art’s Research Forum.

Sanja Iveković: Unknown Heroine – A Reader is edited by Helena Reckitt, and includes essays by Ivana Bago, Katy Deepwell, Lina Džuverović, Silvia Eiblmayr, Elisabeth Lebovici, Suzana Milevska and Milica Tomić. Designed by Rafaela Dražić.

This is the first in a new series of publications published by Calvert 22 Foundation.

*The conference title, ‘23%’, was drawn from a research report compiled by the Fawcett Society, the UK’s leading campaign for women’s equality and rights. On average, women in the UK earn 15% less than men. In London, in January 2013, the pay gap stood at 23%.

Two independent publishers from Taiwan, Shen Shen Books and nos:books, have arrived in Berlin to showcase their exceptional works and publications at “The Calabash Show”, to take place at Motto Berlin from July 31 to August 30.

At The Calabash Show, the two publishers come to Berlin together with several of their artists. The show takes inspiration from an ancient mythical story about people entering the calabash for one day for spiritual practice. They left the calabash after many ordeals, without achieving immortality. When returned to the real world, one year had passed. At Motto Berlin,  the two mortal publishers and their artists present their latest works and publications, and share their thoughts behind the many ordeals of art and publishing.

Participating artists include Chihoi, Eva Lin, Ling Yu Tai, Pei Yu Shen, Son Ni and Ting Cheng.

The show is supported by the National Culture and Arts Foundation, Taiwan, and The Arts Development Fund of the Home Affairs Bureau, the Government of Hong Kong SAR.

Book Launch with Stefan Sulzer: The day my mother touched Robert Ryman

The artist book The day my mother touched Robert Ryman by Stefan Sulzer tells the story of a visit to the Dia Art Foundation in Beacon, New York, during which the mother of the artist felt so irritated by the elegant simplicity of Ryman’s paintings that she slowly let her hand slide over one of the paintings. Stefan Sulzer combines this story with statements and information about the work of Ryman and thereby creates a selective and poetic narration about the reception of art.

The reading, which comes on the 40th anniversary of Ryman’s first institutional solo in Switzerland—at Kunsthalle Basel, of course!—is followed by a talk in German with the curator Samuel Leuenberger (SALTS, Birsfelden).

The first 17 copies of The day my mother touched Robert Ryman were published as a special edition by Edition Taube, numbered, signed, and touched by the mother. Stefan Sulzer’s exhibition of the same title at Galerie Bernhard has just been extended until July 25.
