BAT (Books, Art & Texts)

June 23rd, 2009

BAT éditions

BAT est une structure d’édition indépendante, associative et donc a but non lucratif, ayant pour objectif la publication d’ouvrages sur l’art contemporain, de livres d’artistes et d’éditions résultant de pratiques et de recherches liées à l’objet imprimé.
BAT vise à publier des travaux d’artistes et d’auteurs en leur permettant de concrétiser leurs recherches plastiques, historiques, théoriques, critiques ou scientifiques au sein d’éditions qui pourront être, selon les projets, singulières ou périodiques, gratuites ou payantes.
A noter que la multiplicité des formes et des contenus qui émerge des projets éditoriaux de BAT, ne relève pas de l’indécision mais d’une volonté assumée de modularité, qu’il convient à chaque fois de paramétrer avec tous les acteurs des publications.

BAT structure sa production autour de trois collections: la collection MAP (Mixed Art Pages: ouvrages sur l’art, l’édition et le graphisme contemporains), UFO (Unidentified Free Object: productions gratuites résultant de réflexion et de pratiques liées à l’objet imprimé) et LAB (Library of Artist’s Books: livres d’artistes).

BAT élabore la forme de ses ouvrages en fonction de problématiques liées à leur production et à leur diffusion: la maquette des titres de MAP est donc réalisée en fonction des principes détournés de l’économie de production et de flux tendu.

BAT part de la photocopie ou plus précisément de la duplicopie. Ainsi, le format, le papier, la reliure, la mise en page et la typographie sont conçues de mabnière à utiliser pleinement les qualités de ces modes d’impression: de ses possibilités de définition des images au rendu des noirs et des couleurs, en passant par la qualité de l’encre et le type de papier qui peut servir.

Les livres de MAP sont des ensemble de duplicopies. Seule la mise en forme (assemblage et reliure) sera réalisée par des prestataires extérieurs car, outre la production, BAT prend aussi en charge sa diffusion.
ce type de fonctionnement permet de diffuser autant d’exemplaires qu’il en est demandé, de ne pas avoir à gérer des stocks, d’être dans la rapidité et le flux tendu sans se préoccuper au départ du marché et de potentiels acheteurs. Sorte de Print On Demand autonome, où contrairement à l’offset, la qualité et le coût ne dépendent pas du nombre hypothétique de lecteurs ou de souscripteurs.

Publishing As Performance

June 16th, 2009

Book launch of ‘The Publications Project 2009’ by the Dutch Art Institute

The book launch event Publishing As Performance presents a new collection of 16 publications varying from magazines, essays, books, playing cards & artist editions to performance artifacts, all outcomes of the annual ‘The Publications Project’ by the Dutch Art Institute (DAI) edited by artist/curator Delphine Bedel.

The two-fold book launch event expands on the idea of performativity and the circulation of printed matters whereby a series of one-to-one encounters with the artists of the publications is made on a boat touring the canals in the vicinity of Casco. The journey or “a choreography of events” will involve story telling, games, scripted moments that will unwind from the publications.
Secondly, ‘Temporary Bookshops’, which is a traveling project by the Berlin-based distribution company Motto will be installed at Casco. Next to the DAI publications, various other publications by artists and designers worldwide will be available for viewing.

‘The Publications Project’ is an experimental annual research and production platform by DAI that aims to address the specific process of artist book production from concept and design to distribution. Since 2003, designers from the Werkplaats Typografie and artists from DAI (both master programmes of the ArtEZ Institute of the Arts) are invited to team up in couples and develop one project, in close collaboration with an author. This year ‘publishing as performance’ emerged as the overriding topic, as a concern central to many of the printed matter produced. Through very diverse perspectives and practices the artists and designers reflect upon publishing as a versatile medium.

Sunday 21 June 2009, 14.00—18.00

Typographical Tart Cards

June 15th, 2009

Typographical Tart Cards

London is not short of iconography. Red double-decker buses, black cabs, gherkins and wheels. But there is a more pervasive if ephemeral symbol of the city. Tart cards are the lo-fi promotional tools of many London prostitutes. Step into almost any central London phone box and you can contemplate any number of cards inviting you to be tied, teased, spanked or massaged either in luxury apartments, fully equipped chambers or the privacy of your own hotel room. All this and more is just ‘one minute’ away from the box in which you are standing.

Even if a police crackdown, the internet and the increasing use of mobile phones suggest their days must be numbered, tart cards are still so pervasive they are regarded as items of accidental art and have something of a cult following Once on the periphery of design, tart cards have influenced the work of many mainstream artists such as Royal Academician Tom Philips and Sex Pistols designers Ray and Nils Stevenson.

To coincide with the magazine’s first ever Sex Issue, Wallpaper* - in conjunction with Type LLP and St Bride Library – asked designers from students to superstars, to find the tart hiding in every type and provide their own graphic content. More than 400 cards will be on show at KK Outlet, from 22 June, including designs by Erik Kessels, Anthony Burrill, Neville Brody, NB:Studio, Value and Service, Fernando Guiterrez, Ian Wright and Noma Bar.

Exhibition runs from 22-29 June 2009

City Civic

June 15th, 2009

City Civic

The architect and city planner Miguel Miguel Robles-Duran, offered to Designer Ruedi Baur, a proposal to develop together a new city in Venezuela. This and other similar questions initiated the course, along with the basic question : What contributions can design, specifically the visual communication of architecture and urban development, achieve?

Apart from that which is mentioned above, these projects require a personal starting point, as city construction frequently strengthens after contributions from visual communication. The representatives of both disciplines stand behind the challenges, of both the projects and the emergence of public discussions. But that is not something natural : to vary the tasks and areas of expertise, perspectives and readings, functions and work processes, languages and conventions.

The CAS City Civic is created as a laboratory, where specialists from different disciplines, both theory and practice – designers, architects, urban planners, sociologists, anthropologists, researchers, historians, city administrators, politicians – come together to investigate new ways of shaping the city to further develop the practice. The course is open to anyone involved who would like to participate in „the other urban“.
