About Jane Dickson and Maximilian Klawitter. Maximilian Klawitter. Bauer Verlag.

“In a house you wanted to intrude, searching for a narrative you’ve detected between a character, images and photographs. I remember bumping against a floor lamp, causing its glow to waver briefly. Trying to ascertain the transmissions while already standing in front of objects that demand to be looked at.”

‘At the window’, ‘out there on the street’, ‘here in the room’ are three perspectives from which two protagonists are portrayed on a stage in the format of one publication. Illuminated by the screen of its own projection, ‘About Jane Dickson and Maximilian Klawitter’, in 18 chapters, comprises image based as well as textual documentation of an encounter.

“If it is somehow identifiable as part of a referential system, we immediately understand the meaning of a line on a piece of paper. A horizontal line will be easily read as a minus, an em dash or a way on a map, no matter how sloppily it is written or drawn.”

‘Resisting Exactitude’, a short text by Yara Feghali and Iulia Nistor, leads the reader through cases where the line, transferred from the abstract to the physical, turns out to be different than intended, and can be both problematic or productive. Chapters include ‘City, plot, land demarcation’, ‘Room, wall, corner’, ‘Paper, hand, drawing’ and ‘Mind, thinking, definition’.

The Fine Art Of Living. Ina Wudtke. Archive Books.

Gentrification is not a law of nature, it is a war against the low-income. It is planned for the long term and sustainably supported by political actors. Between 2008 and 2018, Ina Wudtke’s work focused on the de-housing of low-income households in city centres. The Fine Art of Living sheds light on the dark side of post-reunification policies that reorganised a debt-ridden household at the expense of low-income tenants through legal instruments such as modernisation and owner-occupancy claims, among others.

With contributions by Andrej Holm, Elke Krasny, Dieter Lesage, Ursula Maria Probst, Ina Wudtke and Florian Wüst.

Simulacrum – Jrg. 30 #1 Intimacies. Various authors. Simulacrum.

“Our first issue of the year is an inquiry into intimacy in its many forms. We decided on this topic the last week of summer, the first time we sat down with our new editorial team. ‘We don’t share intimacy yet,’ said one of our editors, `intimacy needs time to grow.’ Yet, looking back, that first meeting was perhaps as intimate as it gets; nervous introductions, how-was-your-summer’s, testing waters, sharing ideas, enthusiasm, and doubts as well. ‘How do we define the intimate?’ Won’t it be too much like Simulacrum’s Love issue?’ What’s the difference between love and intimacy anyway?’ 
From these questions, ideas of intimacies started to take shape: those on the threshold between public and private, in languages between lovers, those differing from the hetero-and homonormative, the intimacies shared with oneself. Through touch and writing, poetry and myth, economic systems and modes of play, the subconscious and the attentive; the divergent approaches the eleven contributors of this issue have taken give us a glimpse of the endless ways in which the spectrum of intimate experience can be explored, exercised, and rethought.”

15 Horror Stories by Women Workers is an artistic documentary project by Kristina Bozhurska, consisted of 15 testimonies by women workers accompanied by drawings made by the author herself. The book is with dimensions of 11×16 cm and 64 pages representing a pocket edition that can fit in the upper pocket of a worker’s coat. In this sense, design and content-wise, this book becomes a sort of a symbolic pamphlet that disseminates the voices of these women and develops a method for the artistic engagement to gain a new, re-elaborated form and realistically contribute to the issue it thematizes. In the book design we are using the Harour font from Alias Collection, designed by Gareth Hague, as well as the strong blue Pantone – two elements that contribute to the atmosphere from the title itself and the stories told by the women.

Discipline is a Melbourne-based contemporary art journal. It has a focus on longer, research-based essays, interviews and artist pages.

While based and published in Melbourne, the writers and artists who have contributed to Discipline are both local and international. In presenting longer-form essays, the journal aims to ground a new body of sustained intellectual writing about contemporary art that does not merely fall back on the crutch of ʻpluralityʼ as a means for theorising art after postmodernism and globalisation.

Edited by Nicholas Croggon and Helen Hughes, Guest edited by Maria Fusco
Design by Annie Wu and Ziga Testen
Language: English
Pages: 176
