The Dynamic Archive 01 (thedynamicarchive.net) has been an online platform since 2018. The Version Room as physical gallery space is known as The Dynamic Archive 02.

It compiles various margin notes and contexts related to the components of the online platform and the themes of collaborative work in the context of art, which were presented, performed or heard at certain points within the context of the artistic-scientific research project The Dynamic Archive, and are now the starting points for contributions to this book. The archive’s various framings are interrupted by numerous, very different Definitions of The Dynamic Archive written by invited artists, designers, and scientists who have had experiences with The Dynamic Archive, all of which demonstrate that The Dynamic Archive is a great many things simultaneously. Contributions range from artists who worked with us in our Artist in Residency programs, such as Ho Tzu Nyen and Antonia Baehr, to artists and designers who were invited to give a lecture like Susanne Kennedy, MPA, Emma Hedditch or Sven Jonke from Numen / For Use as well as many others who contributed with their components or within the program Version Room with The Dynamic Archive. This publication is as well an overview of how it has developed until now and a starting point for further thought on what The Dynamic Archive can be.

The Propeller Group—an artist team made up of Phunam, Matt Lucero, and Tuan Andrew Nguyen, and based in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam—blurs the boundaries between fine art and media production, in much the same way that this publication blurs the boundaries between a traditional exhibition catalogue and an artist book. The catalogue features expository essays by curators Naomi Beckwith and Cesar Garcia, as well as contributions by each of the members of The Propeller Group: Tuan pens an obituary for the group that pays homage to Vietnamese funereal celebrations, Phunam shares an astrological reading that similarly honors the cultural legacy of Vietnam, and Lucero creates a travelogue that records the group’s recent exploration of the natural beauty of Papua New Guinea.

This is the first scholarly treatment on The Propeller Group, published on the occasion of the group’s exhibition at the MCA. The exhibition presents a number of multipart projects, comprised of videos and related objects, from the past five years for the first time since the group was formed in 2006.

Fieldnotes Issue 1 – the third thing – spring 2021

A quarterly print journal publishing new writing and artworks with a focus on practices that work between disciplines and against type. There is always a third thing between two things that are known; we are interested in whatever there is between translations/transitions, things-in-progress, converging genres, methods of excavation and formal innovation. The purpose of the journal is to provide a test site for ideas and research; a space for experimental modes and new prototypes.

The first issue of Fieldnotes contains new work by Lauren Berlant & Kathleen Stewart, Wytske van Keulen, Zara Joan Miller, Estelle Hoy, Rob Halpern, Ana Vaz & Ben Rivers, Matthias Connor, Wythe Marschall, Sarah Mangold, Patrick Keiller, Helen Marten, Lulu Wolf, Emily Hunt Kivel, Amparo Dávila trans. Audrey Harris & Matthew Gleeson, Ulrike Almut Sandig trans. Karen Leeder, Malcolm Bradley & Juliette Pépin, David Manley, Eloise Lawson.

This book was published on the occasion of the exhibition “Echos” at Fondazione d’Arte Erich Lindenberg, Museo Villa Pia, Porza – 27 October 2019 — 5 April 2020.

Fondazione d’Arte Erich Lindenberg is pleased to present Marion Tampon-Lajarriette, a French artist who explores the borders of memory and imagination, often referring to and using materials coming from the history of cinema, science and art. At Museo Villa Pia, Marion Tampon-Lajarriette has shown a selection of works from the past ten years, dating back to her arrival in Switzerland, in Geneva. Through video works created from 2D images, installations and furtive shots taken from performances, Marion transforms her love for cultural heritage, both old and contemporary, into a vision that verges on the fantastic, creating suspended atmospheres, between real and imaginary dimensions.

Rosie Ruiz was a non-professional runner who cheated during the 1979 New York City Marathon and the 1980 Boston Marathon.

This book relates the nine days of investigation and doubts which took place between april 22, the day of her victory in Boston, and april 30, the day her disqualification. During these nine days we discovered the testimonies of the protagonists of the case: Rosie, runners, winners, losers, the direction of the marathon and family. This story was a big buzz in the media. The reader gradually discovers all the elements of the story, like an inspector interviewing witnesses. Step by step, links and evidences are made and after 9 days of investigation the reader can determine whether yes or no Rosie Ruiz cheated during these two marathons.

Universities and art schools alike have been subjected to the pressure of recent austerity politics and the ongoing attempt to transform higher education according to the demands of reigning neoliberals. In this context, it is urgent to conceive of alternative frameworks and methodologies of study–whether within, outside or at the margins of academic institutions.

This book examines the current interest in education through a series of conversations with artists, theorists, activists and educators -including Suhail Malik, Brian Holmes, Ruth Sonderegger, Gerald Raunig, Judy Chicago, Gal Kirn, Mohammad Salemy, Melissa Gordon, Marina Vishmidt and Andrea Fraser-who are all actively involved in developing new models of study. Ranging from self-organized learning to critical teaching methodologies, the alternatives gathered here offer a resource for those interested in the renewed politicization of education, new modes of knowledge production and teaching methodologies.
