Verities N°3 – An Issue of Class

January 3rd, 2014

Verities is an independent biannual publication of thought, observation and reflection, giving equal focus to visual arts and literature. Verities explores new ways-of-seeing the most ordinary and overlooked situations, revealing the arresting and irrational in the everyday.
Verities N°3, An Issue of Class: “The irony of covering the subject in the medium, so often used to sell the inaccessible lifestyles of the few to the masses, does not elude us. So here is our attempt to discuss class in a time when class-consciousness has declined, inequality has become the norm, and disempowered people everywhere are invisible within their own national cultures”. With David Harvey, Dick Hobbs, Allan Sekula, Simon J. Charlesworth, Jonathan Olivares, Sut Jhally, Otto Snoek and Matthieu Lavanchy, Zaynab Dena Ziari, Kate O’Brien, Helen Cocker and Ziella Bryars.

Royal Garden 5 – Vegetal Passion

December 13th, 2013

Royal Garden is an on-line shaggy magazine, a multidisciplinary production environment, a critical, theoretical and artistic exquisite cadaver…

Vegetal Passion sees the exhibition space as the natural milieu of works of art.
It’s Our Playground has imagined this 5th installment of Royal Garden as an ambiguous jungle in which visitors will find artists’ pieces, archival photographs and images gleaned from the internet, all shown side by side without any obvious hierarchy. Deftly mixing plants and works of art, works that involve plants and “exhibition plants,” this curatorial project takes a new look at gardening practices in institutional settings, which is increasingly a part of today’s reality. Indeed, while blogs are replete with images of plants, which are adopted for their graphic qualities, they have also invaded art galleries, for artists appreciate their formal values as well as their reference to both a domesticated nature and a questioning of the decorative function of artworks…

The Artist as Curator

December 10th, 2013


© Motto

The Artist as Curator, edited by Elena Filipovic, is a serial publication that examines a profoundly influential but still understudied phenomenon, a history that has yet to be written: the fundamental role that artists have played as curators. Taking the ontologically ambiguous thing we called “the exhibition” as a critical medium, artists have often in the process radically rethought the conventional form of the exhibition as such. This project is about precisely those exhibitions.
Two essays will appear in a loose booklet in each edition of Mousse Magazine over two years, before being published in book form at the end. Collectively, they will address twenty seminal artist-curated exhibitions, spanning a period from the postwar to the present.

How to Get a CYPRIEN GAILLARD Edition for Under $20

December 5th, 2013

Coinciding with the 125th anniversary of National Geographic magazine, french artist Cyprien Gaillard has produced a pop up art edition as part of 032c #25. Assembled from images that span more than 40 years of the publication, Gaillard’s sculpture can be constructed by making three simple folds from left to right into the inside hinge of the magazine. This anachronistic monument is held together by tension alone; no glue is required.

GAGARIN – the Artists in their Own Words

November 28th, 2013


© Simon Casier & Petra Fieuws

GAGARIN, the Artists in their Own Words, is an artist’s magazine, entirely dedicated to the publication of especially written and unpublished texts by artists who are now working, anywhere in the world. Each issue contains a number of artists’ writings, if possible from an equal number of countries. The texts are published in their original language and alphabetical writing, with unabridged translations in English added. Advertising and visual material are deliberately kept out. GAGARIN is aimed at those who do not tend to wait until everything is accepted and synthesised and those who are prepared to leave the road to search for stimulating art and ideas while they are still fresh. GAGARIN does not restrict itself to a particular period or import and runs trough the codes that are applied in the world of art. Its orientation is artistic, documentary and historical. GAGARIN also aspires to provide an accurate source of information about the collaborating artists, using their own words.

Re: The Fox

November 16th, 2013

The Fox was a short-lived critical journal and magazine published in New York in 1975 and 1976 by the American chapter of British conceptual art group Art & Language; only three issues were ever published. The Fox was primarily text based and rooted in recent experimental conceptual practices. It also had a highly critical and articulate voice on a number of art- and society-related problems: education, the power of money and value in art, institutions and their functions, and autonomy.
Re: The Fox, a curatorial project by Arnaud Desjardin and The Everyday Press, with John Slyce, November 15 to December 21, 2013, UNIT/PITT Projects, Vancouver, proposes a limited facsimilé reprint of the three issues of The Fox, accompanied by a number of historical documents, ephemera and other printed matter belonging to the period. Using some of the texts originally published in The Fox, a series of readings and group discussions will be staged in order to test and argue the relevance, resonance and acuity of those ideas today.
The Fox was originally printed with metal type on cheap newsprint, for this reissue the text was completely re-typeset and the layout design recreated digitally for all three volumes. This was done in order to be able to produce cheap printed copy through the current digital presses and/or office printing technologies.
The ultimate aim of Re: The Fox is to produce as a form of live historical bootlegging where authenticity is not a marketable gimmick but a political problem of transmission from one generation to the next.

The Social Life of the Book / Record

August 27th, 2013

The Social Life of the Book is a collection of commissioned texts dealing with books, and how they engage with the circulation of ideas and the agency of social situations. It brings together artists, publishers, writers, designers, booksellers, etc. who consider books less as finished objects or forms but for their disruptive potential and their ability to produce new relationships, new publics and new meanings.
It develops as a series of 16-page, saddle- stitched signatures. In its contents as well as its distribution, the series aims to entice readers into a particular attention not only to printed material as such, but also to the ecosystem of knowledge writing, publishing and distributing form together.
The last issue, SLOB (The Social Life of the Book) #4: Kinesics of the Page, by Avigail Moss, is now available.

Addressing parallel questions, SLOR #01 – Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere plays off its format and inaugurates the new series The Social Life of the Record, a series of original texts by musicians, fans, critics, collectors, dealers, label owners etc. — reflecting on recording, releasing, listening to, filing, flipping and DJing records today.

Audimat Numéro 1

June 19th, 2013

Les Siestes Electroniques élargissent leur champ d’intervention en éditant une revue baptisée Audimat. Une vraie revue, pas un magazine ni un programme du festival : des articles long format sur la musique, écrits par des contributeurs français ou étrangers, pas forcément issus de la presse spécialisée. L’idée est d’ébaucher en langue française un discours critique exigeant, sans être abscons, sur la pop music, son histoire, son écoute, sa diffusion dans le monde. Design: Maximage Société Suisse.

HANS LE MALIN

June 18th, 2013


©World Press Photo

HANS LE MALIN est une publication qui questionne les pratiques de production d’éléments narratifs et leur déploiement dans l’espace médiatique. Pour ce faire, des méthodes d’investigation associées à la conception d’outils orientent l’écriture d’articles. L’enquête est un moyen d’accumuler et de réunir des indices mais aussi de formuler des hypothèses.
Les postulats en études sont confrontés lors d’entretiens avec des personnalités évoluant dans les champs de la recherche, du design, de la photographie ou du journalisme. Rassemblés en ligne, les contenus sont susceptibles d’être édités, imprimés, reliés et distribués lors d’un événement dédié à cette étape.

Initiales n° 02 – Initiales J.B.

June 12th, 2013

La revue Initiales, produite et éditée par l’Ecole nationale supérieure des beaux-arts (ENSBA) de Lyon, esquisse les contours d’une galerie de “portraits en creux” en s’organisant autour de “figures-source”, existantes ou fictives.

Pour son deuxième numéro, la revue Initiales se penche sur une figure solaire qui irradie depuis les années 60 la côte Ouest des Etats-Unis : John Baldessari.
Conçue comme une “monographie augmentée” avec son architecture en trois chapitres qui s’intéresse aussi bien au contexte de production dans lequel travailla John Baldessari, qu’aux échanges qu’il orchestra, et aux méthodes (collage, montage), toujours d’actualité, qu’il initia ; avec sa voix off aussi, qui vient commenter après coup les choix parfois audacieux des contributeurs – critiques d’art, historiens, écrivains, artistes et même juriste – la revue Initiales procède par encerclement progressif et poursuit un seul objectif :réinitialiser cette figure qui a fait école dans son domaine et au-delà.

À l’occasion du lancement au Palais de Tokyo, le 5 juillet, 19h, Palais de Tokyo, Paris, la revue Initiales, en partenariat avec la galerie de Multiples, propose un accrochage de multiples de John Baldessari, dont le poster inédit inséré dans chaque numéro d’Initiales J.B. Ainsi qu’une table ronde qui réunira Emmanuel Tibloux et Claire Moulène, directeur de la rédaction et rédactrice en chef de la revue, les historiens de l’art Marie de Brugerolle et François Aubart ainsi que l’écrivain Fabrice Reymond.

4TH INDEPENDENT PUBLISHERS AND ZINE FAIR VIENNA

June 11th, 2013

The 4th Independent Publishers and Zine Fair Vienna will be hosted June 28-30, 2013, by Kunsthalle Wien at Museumsquartier, with more than sixty local and international exhibitors and artists exhibiting, selling, and exchanging their works.

Alongside the exhibitors, ten artists (including Matthew Brannon, AA Bronson, Kerstin Cmelka, Sture Johannesson, David Jourdan, Stefanie Sargnagel, and others) will punctuate the fair with editions and interventions—some in the form of performances, some as prints, others as t-shirts. As a special exhibition, Hubert Winter, the Viennese gallerist, will curate a selection of art books and ephemera from his vast collection of works from some of the best-known ’60s and ’70s conceptualists. Parallel to the fair, a series of talks and discussions by a selection of expert speakers will touch on emerging practices and debates within zine culture, and will illuminate issues relating to independent publishing today.

FIGURE: The Possibility Of A New Name In 64 Pages

June 10th, 2013

FIGURE is a Paris-based cultural journal featuring art, design, music, architecture, nature, photography, medias, gastronomy, style, sport and art de vivre investigations.
A year ago, editors Côme de Bouchony & Vincent de Hoÿm received a letter saying that they would trespass trademarks rights with the name Figure. They entered into negotiations for keeping their beloved name but the opposing party was not willing to agree to any compromises.
So they decided to make a clean sweep and get a fresh new name, and they have 51 possible new ones: 51 French words and expressions used by English speakers, compiled in this newspaper, a very limited collectors special edition, currently showed at Laurent Mueller gallery in Paris.

Young, Fresh and Relevant

June 7th, 2013

Young, Fresh and Relevant is a yearly open submission journal with the aim of carving a space for writing within the visual arts. YFR hopes to be accessible for a new generation of young (in their practice rather than age) artists who may never have had their writing published, as well as aiming to attract practitioners who are more familiar with the Art Writing / publishing scene.
