Koreografi (NO)
A magazine initiated and edited by Solveig Styve Holte, Runa Borch Skolseg and Ann-Christin Berg Kongsness. The magazine consists of texts written by Nordic artists within the field of dance and choreography. Currently in its second edition.

This Container (SE/BE)
Edited by Maia Means and Chloe Chignell
This Container is an open host for texts and documents that come through and alongside choreographic thinking. It’s a recipe, but not for eating; a sequel to everything up until now; horizontal tourism; many feminists’ elegy; opinions weakened with time; an inaudible lesbian opera; a future ballet manifesto; dances and desires; cheating discipline; purposely misplaced; only poems; statements and speculations; a diagram for artistic research; and an incomplete encyclopaedia of random knowledge and dear dances. This Container takes shape according to its content, without organising through prominent narratives or figures, this container wants to weave, leaving holes and threads between the forms of writing.

Engagement Zine (BE)
In its first edition, the zine made an open call to artists and activists to submit material for publication. The zine is edited through a collective zine atelier designing by hand the contributions and the publication for print.

Hosted by Engagement Arts and rile*.

Joshua Simon (ed)Being Together Precedes BeingArchive Books18 eurosBeing Together Precedes Being offers a text book for the project “The Kids Want Communism,” which was initiated towards the 99th anniversary of the Soviet Revolution of October 1917 as a series of exhibitions, symposiums and conferences, screening programs, publications and a summer camp. In this textbook, communism does not merely describe an “us versus them” relation, but also offers that we are becoming the future. This trajectory of communism runs parallel to us at every single moment and its guiding principle is that being together precedes being.
Reba MayburyDining with Humpty DumptyArcadia Missa15 eurosMistress Rebecca is approached by a 34-year-old Tory who works in a corporate field of creativity with a feeding fetish. Such mundanity is outrageous – until he declares himself as a female supremacist. Over the period of two evenings and one afternoon in three different chain restaurants in central London, Mistress Rebecca explores Humpty Dumpty’s beliefs then pushed his adoration of humiliation and his facade of female empowerment to its limits.
Manual LaboursThe Complaining BodyCultural Decomcracy Editions10 eurosManual Labours Manual #3 is the third publication from the project Manual Labours. Entitled Manual Labours: The Complaining Body the publication presents the process, findings and analysis of an 18 month long investigation into the physical and emotional affects of complaining, receiving complaints and not being able to complain in the context of work. Research has involved a series of workshops with call centre workers in a London Borough Council, commuters on a train station platform in Worcester and staff dealing with student complaints in a UK University.
Holly ChildsDanklandsArcadia Missa12 eurosSet in Melbourne’s infamous Docklands area – a former swamp turned shipping dock turned artificial business district – Australian writer Holly Childs’ novella folds together poetry, prose and experimental language in a literary negotiation that ‘enfolds art criticism, post-internet discourse, out-of-bounds spaces and characters that dissolve’.
Emily Wardill & Ian WhiteWe are behindBook Works17 eurosPresented as the blueprints for three public lectures, We are behind proposes alternative routes through Emily Wardill’s work and represents three different attempts at embodying and dissembling knowledge. Using different formal textual devices, from which they also deviate – a standard lecture, the subject of which becomes something felt, not taught; an a-chronological conversation; and the transcript of a play rendered as a formal essay – each section describes the different facets of an ongoing dialogue between the authors.
