The Publications Project PERFORMING REALITY

June 28th, 2010

THE PUBLICATIONS PROJECT is a collection of artist’s books issued by the Dutch Art Institute and designed in collaboration with the Werkplaats Typografie. International in its scope, this collection is a unique blend of printed matter. The 2010 edition consists of 12 publications edited by artist and curator Delphine Bedel. In close collaboration with one or more guest authors, artists and designers teamed up to produce an artwork in the form of printed matter. From very diverse perspectives the artists and designers reflect on publishing as a versatile medium. The publications vary from artist books, essays, poster series, performance artefacts and documentary investigations, to autofiction and collages.

Better Mjstakes

June 25th, 2010

Better Mjstakes

“In this moment you’re closer than anybody else to our brainchild, the ‘Better Mjstakes Magazine’. We want this platform to be understood as a rising collection of thoughts and talks; a processual protocol of our growth as young designers and inevitably: modern romantics. Having chosen Switzerland to be our point de départ.
Graphic Design these days is mostly documented without bigger aspiration or depth, which (if anything) banalises a proper discussion. For this reason we aim to provide the – in our eyes – lacking insight into the thoughts and approaches of modern graphic designers, building a ground for discussion and challenging the exchange.
The name ‘Better Mjstakes’ reflects our philosophy and purpose: to just start making something; really enter a profound relationship with our beloved subject. And on top of it all: not fearing the mistakes that line our path of enlightment.”
Johannes Breyer & Hugo Hoppmann, editors

With Sam De Groot, James Goggin, François Rappo, Jörg Koch, Mark Kiessling

BOOK SHOW

June 22nd, 2010





Book Show is an exhibition of artworks, objects and structures that address the physical form of the book. The starting point for the exhibition is Ulises Carrión’s provocative series of aphorisms ‘The New Art of Making Books’ (1975). Carrión was the founder of Other Books and So in Amsterdam, a gallery and bookstore that during its short life (1975 to 1979) became the first major centre for the flourishing international artist-led publishing scene.

Carrión’s text establishes the specific conditions of the book as a display device:

A book is a sequence of spaces.
Each of these spaces is perceived at a different moment—a book is also a
sequence of moments.
A book is not a case of words, nor a bag of words, nor a bearer of words.
A writer, contrary to the popular opinion, does not write books.
A writer writes texts.

Carrión’s perspective on the form of the book de-emphasises any inherent union between the material form of the book and its printed contents, and implies that each body of material to be made into a book must somehow be addressed to the display conditions that the book offers.

With Nina Beier + Marie Lund, Ulises Carrión, Daniel Eatock, Martino Gamper, Nina Katchadourian, Moritz Kung + Richard Venlet, Kelly Large, John Latham, Fraser Muggeridge Studio, Rollo Press, Katerina Šedá + Radim Peško, Yann Sérandour, Simon Starling, Werkplaats Typografie, Keith Wilson

DAF est une invitation pour que des plasticiens, graphistes, architectes, scénographes interviennent dans la halle située au 15 rue La Noue Bras de Fer à Nantes.

Le projet DAF ne manifeste rien, il propose.
Il se glisse dans une halle industrielle en attendant les pelleteuses et les grands projets urbains, il se confronte à une échelle, il n’est pas une galerie, il n’est pas commercial, il dure un peu, il est éphémère, il n’est pas un espace d’exposition, il est un espace de travail, il a un regard quotidien (celui de ses usagers).
Il n’expose pas, il installe.

TOOLING AROUND

June 22nd, 2010

TOOLING AROUND

How would you interpret the digital stamp tool manually?
What do you do with the magic wand on a piece of paper?
How could you apply the pipette to a real document?…

Today most graphic creation is produced with the same Adobe tools, on the same Apple computers. Tooling Around invites you, graphic designers from Berlin, to challenge the use of these digital tools and to explore together their transposition into our physical world.

During one day, this project is the rare opportunity to design and collaborate in a dedicated space. Our source material will be the things YOU designed, so bring your books, flyers, posters, albums… everything that can be cut and reused for this collective project!
This event will also take place in Paris in July and the result of both projects will be published.

Project Parallel school aims to think about parallel ways of self-education, to share interests, point of views and make projects, by using the Web. The main statement is that students can learn while initiating projects, outside the academic school context, and invite, organize, meet people in a working process. The label «parallel school» is copyleft, and can be used by anyone who wants to organize learning and working contexts. The activities of its students are shared on the blog, and would like to generate and spread work emulation.

“We propose to create an ephemeral public space as an exchange area for work and experimentation around graphic design, art, education and learning processes. These exchanges will lead to a publication, which
will relate the activities of the workshop and thus consider a certain approach of publishing (in situ & limited short time) as a strong part of the workshop. Each participant of the workshop had to think, shape, design, and bind a collective self-published outcome in the particular context of 5 days. It was a good opportunity to share knowledges, cultural interests, ideas on art, design and education.

“The story of pedagogy is more a story of love than a story of didactic materials”. Question the expected positions on learning processes and experiment parallel ways of working and exchanging.
Activities were to generate ephemeral experiences of learning and publishing (in a large sense), including the production of a collective self-published outcome (editorial concept / contribution / design / printing / binding) that will correlate the workshop’s activities and questions.
People involved was asked to bring their ignorance and curiosity, as well as books, texts and questions around design and education; to propose a way of exchanging/learning/teaching that can take any form (lecture, common reading, screening, playfull activity, performance, drawing, writing, etc.) and that was shared and/or experienced with every participant.”

MANYSTUFF, MOSCOW – OFFICEABC WORKSHOP, DAY 2&3

June 18th, 2010

Officeabc (Catherine Guiral & Brice Domingues) workshop

“We’d like to bounce back on the idea of «sensorium». Sensorium is, by its greek ethymology aistheterion, the place of all sensations. Aristotles described it as a region in the brain centralizing the datas provided by all human senses. In a way a movie could be a sensorium. A physical and virtual organ of sensations. You see and hear but also smell. Touch and taste, if you extend the movie experience to eating popcorns, associates the three major senses to more tangible experiences. Cinema is also, as described by Jean Epstein, an «hypnosis-machine», something in between dream, sleep and attention. Suddenly when the end credits roll, do you really believe you are back in reality? We’d like to work with the notion of end credits and what French call «générique». Again the ethymology is quite interesting. It comes from the latin genere which means to create. A générique is also a list. Words appearing at the end. This is where we will start from. The End.”
