Showboat: Punk/Sex/Bodies explores sex in punk and punk in sex. Punk is often thought of as an almost asexual movement, in part because of its charged aversion to romance (see Johnny Rotten’s notorious description of love as “2 minutes and 52 seconds of squelching noises”). Yet, its raw street sound triggered an exuberant, primal physical release among its youthful followers.

For many punks, sex was used as a necessary shock tactic against the orthodoxies that held sway in conservative 1970s Britain. The status of punk as a radical subculture meant that it could freely explore sex without mainstream censorship; and this ability to openly express sex and sexuality provided punk with so much of its essential rawness and immediacy.

Beginning in 1972 and spanning right up to the present day, Showboat provides a chronological survey of the relationship between punk and sex as seen through original posters, flyers, record covers, photographs and ephemera drawn from the editor’s punk archive, The Mott Collection. Alongside written contributions from Julie Burchill, Paul Cook, Vivien Goldman, Eve Libertine, Bruce LaBruce, Amos Poe, Richard Prince and Will Self among many others. Designed by Jamie Andrew Reid.

One of the most influential photographers of our time, Nobuyoshi Araki is known for his diaristic style or “shi-shashin” (I-photographs) through the publication of over 500 books throughout his career. His work has become practically synonymous with Japanese photography; closely associated with his work on bondage, his late wife, Yoko, as well as still lifes and nudes.

In 1986 at Cinema Rise in Tokyo, Araki staged a live performance entitled Tokyo Monogatari (Tokyo Story). Using two projectors, Araki and his assistants, Nobuhiko Tokyo Monogatari became the first in a series of live performances entitled Arakinema, which he staged until the mid-2000s in The majority of the work is derived from Shashin Jidai, the important underground sub culture magazine of the 1980s museums and art institutions around the world. in Japan.

As a special case excited about our film work. As Araki also explained at our initial meeting in Shinjuku last year, “The two films should be seen as a set, since Blue Period is about the past and This project is just (a future). It is an act of subtraction (past), whereas adding color to the images in the images in Last Summer is about an act of addition (future). like life itself. ”

Working directly from the 140 original slides used for both projections, the book successfully offers a fresh review of the photographer’s hidden oeuvre and regains the true spirit and atmosphere of the original Arakinema performances

PUD III is the last book in a trilogy conceived and photographed by Jason Nocito, designed by Camilla Venturini of Ordinary Books and published by Dashwood.   Originally released at the LAABF in January 2014 PUD(I) consisted of a series of sixteen photographs of New York City street debris and puddles interspersed with images from a road trip across the US all shot on an 8×10 view camera recording extremely high detail.    The final book produced in an identical trim size and cover design, in alternate colors, uses the debris and puddles as its’ main subject once again but this time juxtaposed with studio and darkroom images. Asking more questions than are being resolved; the PUD series has evolved as an exercise in conceptualizing, editing and design – the practice of bookmaking itself. – See more at: http://www.dashwoodbooks.com/pages/books/15498/jason-nocito/pud-iii#sthash.SRogeVRp.dpuf
