A Wikipedia Reader #2

by Mylinh Trieu Nguyen & David Horvitz

A diverse group of artists were asked to conduct a Wikipedia search, and then to continue onto other articles through linked words, creating a “string” of ideas. The final form is a reader containing these articles …

Design projections

September 29th, 2009

Pour cette première édition de Design projections, la typographie a été retenue comme thème principal : projection du documentaire Typeface qui trace le portrait de la dernière manufacture de caractères typographiques de bois en Amérique du Nord, aujourd’hui devenu le musée Hamilton Wood Type Museum, à Two Rivers au Wisconsin. Le film explore l’héritage laissé par les artisans et ouvriers de cet art disparu et permet de découvrir comment les designers et artistes d’aujourd’hui intègrent la typographie de bois et de plomb dans leur travail.

Surveying a wide range of independent local, national and international publishers of magazines, fanzines, journals, diaries and periodicals, Publish and Be Damned celebrates publishing as a creative and critical space for presenting artists’ work. As with previous years, the fair celebrates experimental approaches to making and distributing the work of artists, writers and musicians outside of the commercial mainstream.

Publish and Be Damned is taking place in parallel with the London Art Book Fair, 25 Fri – 27 Sun at the Whitechapel.

Werktage

September 18th, 2009

Werktage

We, the students of the Burg Giebichenstein University of Art and Design Halle, Germany, are inviting other students to discuss with them and guests about the current situation and future development of the academic training in our disciplines. The agenda of the werktage comprises workshops, lectures and an Open Space meeting. It will take place from the 21st until the 25th of October 2009.

Recently universities in Germany changed massively. The Bologna Process, the debate about the introduction of tuition fees and the global economic crisis are just a few of the things that have a big impact on the future of our education.

How are we going to deal with that? How does it influence our present situation? How do we want to study in the future? We have to talk about projects that are self initiated, interdisciplinary, sustainable and have a big social interest. So all in all werktage is supposed to be more then a meeting – an event which connects people and their ideas in order to create something new.

Werktage is organized by Anja Kaiser and Christoph Knoth

Art dans la rue: Livre à vous!

September 18th, 2009


Art dans la rue: Livre à vous!


Fanette mellier
, avec Betty Bone pour l’écriture et Grégoire Romanet pour la scénographie, propose au habitants de Gentilly de suivre par étapes l’émergence d’un livre, tout au long d’une année.

Chaque mois, de septembre 2009 à juin 2010, sera imprimée en sérigraphie une partie du livre dans une couleur différente (10 passages au total). Même si le protocole est bien défini au départ, l’écriture, le graphisme et l’impression seront réalisés au fil des mois, ce qui induit une certaine liberté dans l’évolution de l’ouvrage (intrigues fictionnelles et matérielles entremêlées!).

La planche d’impression recto/verso sera exposée à chaque étape de l’impression dans des présentoirs conçus spécifiquement et placés dans des lieux publics de la ville.

À l’occasion du lancement du projet, une exposition du travail de Fanette Mellier aura lieu au Service culturel de Gentilly, de septembre à novembre 2009.

Vernissage vendredi 18 septembre à 19h au Service culturel de Gentilly

Featuring: AIDS-3D, Raphaël Bastide, Jacob Broms Engblom, Ludovic Burel, Michelle Ceja, Petra Cortright, Clôde Coulpier, Caitlin Denny, Nicolas Djandji, Aleksandra Domanovic, Constant Dullaart, Roc Jiménez de Cisneros, Martin Kohout, Parker Koo Ito, Dennis Knopf, Oliver Laric, Tobias Leingruber, Abigail Lloyd, Guthrie Lonergan, Fanette Muxart, Peter Nowogrodzki, Nicholas O’Brien, Ilia Ovechkin, Angelo Plessas, Isabelle Prim, Anna Ramos, James Shaeffer, Harm van den Dorpel, Sarah Weis, Math Wrath, Damon Zucconi

The works displayed on mybiennialisbetterthanyours.com are not subversive because they are trying to deconstruct established systems of dot.capitalism. They are subversive because they are referring to these systems through the use of amateur “original” content production standards set up by meta-producers of online containers, which are radical in their mass popularity and ease of use…

Stadtstaat. A Scenario for Merging Cities — Episode 2

September 11th, 2009

Stadtstaat. A Scenario for Merging Cities is a project by Metahaven in two episodes, co-produced and presented by Casco and Ku?nstlerhaus Stuttgart. Following episode 1 on view until 12 September at Ku?nstlerhaus Stuttgart, the opening of episode 2 takes place on 25 September at Casco where the story of ‘Stadtstaat’ evolves.
Stadtstaat. A Scenario for Merging Cities projects a mise-en-scene of an urban experiment not city twinning, but city merging. Going beyond the conjectural scenarios of place-branding that have inflected their recent work, Metahaven invents models for a regional ‘city-state.’ With a programmatic reflection on the homogeneity that might befall to European ‘unification,’ we are invited to imagine a policy decision by two mid-level Northern European cities that bid to weather the economic downturn and enhance their networking capacities by becoming one – Utrecht and Stuttgart (…)
Stadtstaat. A Scenario for Merging Cities generates forms that render the role of design in a managed and technocratic European reality more tangible and debatable (…)

On the last day of ‘Stadtstaat. A Scenario for Merging Cities’, a public forum with international thinkers and practitioners will be organized in order to discuss the issue of urban governance and politics in the light of network power and the thrust of participation.

Opening: Friday 25 September, 17.00-20.00
26 September-15 November 2009
Casco, Office for Art, Design and Theory, Utrecht, The Netherlands

Symposium
Networked Cities: Governance, Trust, Design
Sunday 15 November 2009 13.00-18.00

Integrated2009

September 10th, 2009

Integrated2009 is a biannual international design conference that will take place in deSingel Antwerp on Thursday 22 & Friday 23 October 2009.
Integrated2009 will focus on the crossover between contemporary graphic design, illustration, typo- graphy, new media, technology & art.
Can we talk about a new research attitude, or not? And what does ‘design’ actually mean these days?
Up to 24 speakers – Stefan Sagmeister, Annelys de Vet, Wesley Wolkman, Mevis & Van Deursen, David Shrigley … – from different countries are expected (award-winners and young participants side-by-side); the intention is to get some answers and to create a unique interaction of ideas, thoughts and expectations related to the immediate future.
