Rosa Barba: In Conversation With.

This book was published in conjunction with the exhibition “Rosa Barba” at Kunstverein Braunschweig and the CCA – Center for Contemporary Art Tel Aviv.
It collects four conversations between the artist and Sergio Edelsztein (Director CCA Tel Aviv), Hilke Wagner (Director Kunstverein Braunschweig), and writers and curators Kirsty Bell and Gil Leung.

Rosa Barba (*1972 in Agrigent, Italy; lives in Berlin) is an artist working extensively in the area of film. Besides narrative works on film, Barba also produces sculptural orchestrations that ultimately open up into a conceptual practice. Works such as Enigmatic Whistler (2009) or Invisible Act (2010) develop an almost multisen-sorial effect due to their special treatment of material, form, surface, light, and sound. The absence of a projected image causes the focus to shift to the material, thus heightening the sculptural effect.

THE OTOLITH GROUP – Thoughtform, La forma del pensiero

Published on the occasion of the exhibition at the MAXXI, a co-production with the MACBA, Thoughtform wants to try to give a key to penetrate deeply into the complex set of references, themes and motifs that inform the Otholith Group’s engaging videos. The London-based group draws from history, personal archives, and the cinéma d’auteur imagery to compose a narrative for their works. And the publication, by reproducing scripts and frames from the artists’ films, tries to reflect this constant, intense interplay of flowing voices.

Allan Kaprow, A Bibliography

This bibliography catalogues and illustrates, with a wide selection of images, Allan Kaprow’s entire body of published work: from his first artist´s book in 1962, to his last anthological projects in the 1990s. This lesser-known side of his oeuvre unfolds through 32 books, booklets, and pamphlets produced over a period of 40 years. Kaprow’s work moved along two parallel tracks: Happening – of which he was an unchallenged poineer, starting in the 1950s – and Activity Booklets, which functioned as a tool to help people understand and experience these perfomances.
The layout of his books, the originality of their structure, the literary stature of their texts, and their aesthetic quality as objects shifted his exploration of print into a higher realm, where the book became a fully-fledged work of art.

Drawing Room Confessions #3 / #4 – Mousse Publishing

Made of words and exchanges, with no images, Drawing Room Confessions is open to diverse practices and voices. It is named after a game played at the end of the nineteenth century in England and France, which consisted of a fixed questionnaire answered by players to reveal their tastes, aspirations and personalities. For every issue of the journal, we invite one artist to play the serious and playful game of conversation. Each section follows a set of rules, only the players change, as interviewers from a wide range of fields contribute to a portrait of the artist at a certain time.

Kilobase Bucharest A-H, Ioana Nemes and Dragos Olea (Eds.), Mousse Publishing

A-H is part of a project connected to “Image to be projected until it vanishes,” a group show curated by Mihnea Mircan. This book, published by Kilobase Bucharest, a fictitious art gallery dreamed up by Dragos Olea and Ioana Nemes (the exhibition is dedicated to the latter, who passed away suddenly last April), is the first of three publications aimed at describing Bucharest through a sort of experimental primer: for each letter, eight artists and collectives have chosen a key term that represents a sliver of the Romanian capital.

The resulting portrait conveys the essence of Bucharest from a subjective standpoint that captures the infinite facets of the city’s life and culture.
