Robida magazine n. 8 — Isola Otok Island
Various
Associazione Robida - 25.00€ -

Robida 8 is imagined and organised as a journey, that can explore aspects of island life along a narrative thread, as if developing the structure of an epic voyage: from the Embarkation – where introductory perspectives on islands are offered –, then into the Departure – which considers the islands from afar, as conceptual entities –, through the Tempest – representative of the turmoils and movement that island stand for –, passing from the Strandedness – where the island coincides with stillness –, to finally approach the Homecoming, and the island as repository of collective as well as personal memory. The aim is for this journey to enrich our understanding of islands, as fertile ground for exploring what it means to inhabit a place.

Robida is a multilingual cultural magazine. It is published yearly by the association Robida which is based in Topolò, a village of twenty inhabitants on the border between Italy and Slovenia. The magazine explores different topics – such as abandonment, silence, the relation between domesticity and wildness, forest etc. – which are connected to the place where the magazine comes to life, namely Topolò. The eight issue reflects on the island which is explored through essays, photography, art projects, academic texts, interviews and personal written by authors from all over the world, from Argentina to Poland, from US to Slovenia.

Trilingual edition: Italian / Slovenian / English

nY48 — onze moeders
Various Authors
Tijdschrift nY - 12.00€ -

nY48 richt zich tot onze moeders, en wil moederschap herwaarderen, opentrekken en herdefiniëren. Op welke manieren kunnen we nadenken en schrijven over moederschap als niet (enkel) biologisch, maar als een relatie waarin zorg en sociale reproductie centraal staat? Hoe kunnen we dit collectief dragen en delen? Maar moederschap kan ook draagmoederschap betekenen, en breder nog, intergenerationele overdracht, mentoraat, feministische geschiedschrijving, intertekstualiteit en vriendschap. En bestaat zeker niet alleen uit cisvrouwen. Wie zijn onze moeders, of kunnen dat zijn?

 

nY45 - Hip Hop
Various
Tijdschrift nY - 12.00€ -

Hiphop is voor sommigen van ons altijd al in de ether: hoorbaar, tastbaar en voelbaar. Vaak gonst hiphop op de achtergrond als een stuwende, vormgevende kracht, zoals Fred Moten stelt in het openingsessay van dit nummer. Aan de andere kant: er zijn waarschijnlijk weinig dingen met minder street credibility dan een papieren literair tijdschrift. In plaats van hiphop zogenaamd te valoriseren vanuit de Literatuur, beoogde dit nummer om als nY nieuwe institutionele verbindingen aan te gaan, interactie tussen genres uit te nodigen en uitwisseling tussen overlappende gemeenschappen te realiseren.

Tijdschrift nY - 12.00€ -

Publishing as Practice
Various Authors
Inventory Press - 35.00€ -  out of stock

Publishing as Practice centers on the work of three contemporary artists/book publishers who have developed fresh ways of broaching the political in publishing. 

This book documents a residency program at Ulises—a curatorial platform based in Philadelphia—that explores publishing as an incubator for new forms of editorial, curatorial and artistic practice. Over the course of two years, three participants (Hardworking Goodlooking, Martine Syms/Dominica, and Bidoun) activated Ulises as an exhibition space and public programming hub, engaging the public through workshops, discussions, and projects. 

Hardworking Goodlooking is a design and publishing imprint working primarily out of the Philippines. Dominica is an imprint run by artist Martine Syms dedicated to exploring Blackness as a topic, reference, marker, and audience in visual culture. Bidoun, a non-profit organization and magazine, focuses on art and culture from the Middle East and its diasporas. Each organization approached their residency at Ulises in a unique way, bringing a new understanding of what it means to practice publishing. 

Edited by Kayla Romberger, Gee Wesley, Nerissa Cooney, Lauren Downing, and Ricky Yanas, Publishing as Practice features a preface by David Senior, Head of Library and Archives at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, and Ulises Carrión’s 1975 publishing manifesto “The New Art of Making Books.” Publishing as Practice also includes writing from Clara Balaguer, Hardworking Goodlooking, Martine Syms/Dominica, Bidoun, Lauren Downing, Kayla Romberger, and Gee Wesley alongside interviews, excerpts, and documentation from each residency.

Borrowing Positions

Lugemik - 17.50€ -  out of stock

Borrowing Positions: Role-Playing Design & Architecture is a speculative book which reflects on the design- and architecture-centred LARPs (Live Action Role-Plays) organized by the Trojan Horse collective. The book is an exploration of Live Action Role-Play as a design and architecture research tool. By inviting the reader to try on different characters, switch roles and reconsider their everyday practices, the book explores issues such as identity, performativity, gender, colonialism, care responsibilities and fear in the context of architecture, design and urban planning.

The book consists of three parts: an overview of previous LARPs and their theoretical background; reflections (essays, visual essays and interviews) on LARP-related issues; and a practical (DIY) section – a step-by-step guide on how to organize your own design LARP.

Contributors to the book vary from architecture and design practitioners to performance artists working with role-play and fiction. The book will be of interest to anyone interested in inderdisciplinary practices in design and architecture.

Steve Paxton: Drafting Interior Techniques
Various
Culturgest - 26.00€ -  out of stock

This book was published on the occasion of the exhibition Steve Paxton / Drafting Interior Techniques, a retrospective exhibition, in Culturgest, Lisbon, March-July 2019, co-curated by Joao Fiadeiro and Romain Bigé.

American dancer, choreographer and improviser Steve Paxton (b. 1938) has continuously been shaping the face of dance for more than six decades. Starting his dance career in the 1950s, he danced with José Limon and the Cunningham company, contributed to found the Judson Dance Theater and post-modern dance, invented two dance techniques (Contact Improvisation and Material for the Spine), while writing extensively about movement (more than a hundred articles since 1970) and relentlessly performing improvisation around the world.

Drafting Interior Techniques is the first retrospective look taken at his work and legacy. It is built around one of Steve’s obsessive questions: what is my body doing when I am not conscious of it? This question is a mantra through the exhibition, which offers the visitors to wander into the dancer’s workshop, not only to see dance, but to look at movement with the eyes of a dancer.

Contributions: Delfim Sardo, Romain Bigé, João Fiadeiro, Julie Perrin, Daniel Lepkoff, Bojana Cvejić, Alice Godfroy, Nancy Stark Smith, Hubert Godard, André Lepecki Yvonne Rainer, Martin Nachbar, Ramsay Burt, Bebe Miller, Patricia Kuypers.

Klassen Sprachen/ Written Praxis

Archive Books - 12.00€ -  out of stock

In dictionary entries, after its first appearance the discussed word is represented by its initial: class, class struggle, class contradiction as well as crisis, catastrophe, or colonialism become C. Our C (K in German) stands for Class Languages, and thus for the question of the verbalization, translation, and inscription of those political and social conflicts that determine our contemporary moment. Instead of passing off art as a model for a better politics, we wish to test it for the signatures, the markers and forms of these deeply antagonistic relations of which art itself is a material part: we are concerned with art as a class language, as well as with class languages in art; with art’s room for maneuver as well as with its limits and restrictions, curatorially, in writing and debate.

How to Sleep Faster 3
Various
Arcadia Missa - 10.00€ -

How is survivalism mediated in contemporary culture? . . . For this issue we asked the semi-speculative question: is it possible that survivalism is our only remaining ideological position. This was in part to see how we might be able to understand a hyper, hysterical, hyperbolic moment of cultural production as either indicative of, or (more hopefully) creating the momentum for an escape from, an age of contemporary ‘cynical reason’.
