When Europe Speaks with One Voice
Will Holder
Wednesday, 22.7.2010, 8 pm
Vortrag in englischer Sprache

During this evening, designer, editor and writer Will Holder presents the seventh issue of de Appel’s “F.R.David”, dealing with “the compression of letter-writing as cybernetic translation – vs. redundant delivery of intention – from one form to another, ‘With Love,”. Including contributions from Alison Knowles, Tine Melzer, Esperanza Rosales and others…

“An Attempt to Evolve, XXIV: Berkeley the circling dog”

Two dogs sit in a room, furnished by a nurturing hand (cut flowers, floral curtains, labelled storage pots). Actually, one of them doesn’t sit, nor lie on the plainly up holstered chaise-longue. His ears hang down, as do the corners of his mouth and the brow above the eyes that
stare desperately into an unseen space. His head is propped up by the wide back of the chaise-longue, which also ensures that he won’t see – only hear the questions from behind his right shoulder, of – the other dog with the pointed ears, sitting: wide-eyed, upright and smiling in
a straight-backed chair; he supports a pad on his right leg (crossed over left), and pen, in hand, to take down the response to

“And if you ever did catch your tail, are you sure it would make you happy?”

Die Veranstaltungsreihe untersucht die strategische Verwendung von historischem Material im Rahmen künstlerischer Praxen. Anhand von Vorträgen soll thematisiert werden, wie bildende Künstler gegenwärtig historisches Material benutzen um aktuelle Diskurse zu befragen oder
zu unterminieren, und welche narrativen Modelle von (Kunst-)Geschichte dieser Beschäftigung zugrunde liegen.

“When Europe Speaks with One Voice” wird veranstaltet vom Master of Fine Arts (ZHdK), unter der Leitung von Lucie Kolb und Romy Rüegger.

F.R. DAVID – The “Iditorial” issue
Dieter Roelstraete

“The bizarre order in which the seven days of the week appear in the current issue of F.R.DAVID is modelled after the sequence of KarlHeinz Stockhausen’s opera cycle ‘Licht’, starting with “Donnerstag am Licht” (work on which began in 1977) and ending with “Sonntag am Licht”, the part with which the composer finally concluded the series in 2003. In Stockhausen’s cycle, the subject matter of each opera mirrors (however opaquely at times) the traditional mythological attributes ascribed to the various days of the week—not a concern that exerted any influence on F.R.DAVID’s appropriation of this structure, which is no more than a homage in passing. Each editorial was conceived and written, however, within the space of a day, with various elements recurring, echo-like, throughout the week that was. So far, ‘Licht’ has never been staged in its entirety, and it is not known whether Stockhausen ever meant it to be.”
