Anri Sala’s series Untitled (Maps/Species, 2018-2022) consists of diptychs which create a dialogue, within the twenty-four windows of the Passage de la Bourse de Commerce, between an an eighteenth-century zoological engraving with an ink and pastel drawing by the pastel by the artist. This cycle echoes the immense canvas marouflaged on the shoulder of the Rotunda. In the form of a leporello to be unfolded recto-verso, this book gives an account of this project in the context of its project in the context of its presentation.

Fraustellungen is a non-collaborative publication by the artist Kasia Fudakowski and gallerist Jennifer Chert. This two-sided leporello presents the artist’s four exhibitions from her Fraustellungen series: Enthusiastinnen (2012), Pessimistinnen (2013), Stoikerinnen (2014) and finally Sexistinnen to be presented at Art Basel Statements 2015. Each side is designed respectively by artist and gallerist, demonstrating two opposing aesthetic approaches to the work, the tug of war of forced collaboration, and reinforces the blatant destructive nature of self-sabotage.

Texts by Jacob Fabricius and Paul Haworth.
