Worms #7 'Artists who Write and Writers who Art'
Clem Macleod (Ed.)
Worms Magazine - 24.00€ -

The ‘Artists who Write and Writers who Art’ Issue. For Worms 7 we’ve looked to our visual counterparts for some soil nutrients. We’ve wormed our way into the psyche of the artist, to bring you the ‘Artists That Write, and Writers That Art’ issue. Many of our subjects in the past have come into writing via non-traditional routes (filmmaking, curation, art, performance, podcasting, and so on), so it only felt right to cast a spotlight over those who have inspired our experimental literary practices so far. Not only those that use words within their visual practice, but those who use images to inform their writing. The reader, the writer, the artist, the activist, the poet and performer; they’re all here and they’re all worms. 

In this mega worm (which is fittingly pink, for the first time somehow) you are in for a feast. Clem interview Helen Marten, Martine Syms and Diamond Stingily, Caitlin interviews actual art-writing icon Olivia Laing, Pierce talks to the profound Dr. Joy James, Philippa Snow gives us her thoughts on the act of writing art criticism (spoiler: it’s out her ass), and we have enough Derek Jarman content to keep you going for the rest of the year. We have some hilarious/insightful/weird/wonderful contributions from some of your favourite regulars too; including Jess Cole, Isabelle Bucklow, Sam Moore, Haydée Touitou, Estelle Hoy and many others.

Spike #75 – Closed due to Colonialism, Elitism, and a Private Dinner – The Museum Issue
Rita Vitorelli (ed.)
Spike Magazine - 18.00€ -  out of stock

Spike #75 fêtes the museum in all its stuffy, messy, showy, old-timey glory, as a home-away-from-home, the address of solace and astonishment.

Featuring William Pope.L, Simon Wu, Louise Lawler, Ben Davis, Ann Demeester, Anthony Hudek, Meschac Gaba, Bernadette Van-Huy, Ghislaine Leung, Estelle Hoy, Tea Hacic-Vlahovic, and many more.

This issue is a guestbook to be leafed through at half-light, to be reminded among all the petitions to should of what the museum already is: a trove of our symbols and the histories they shift for; a stubborn beauty mark amid everything's turning smoother; an agora and a target and a legacy of timeless becoming. If it is a half-light of dawn, let it be a new chapter; and if dusk, then a eulogy of many voices.
Founded by the artist Rita Vitorelli in 2004, Spike (Spike Art Quarterly) is a quarterly magazine on contemporary art published in English which aims at sustaining a vigorous, independent, and meaningful art criticism. At the heart of each issue are feature essays by leading critics and curators on artists making work that plays a significant role in current debates. Situated between art theory and practice and ranging far beyond its editorial base in Vienna and Berlin, Spike is both rigorously academic and stylishly essayistic. Spike's renowned pool of contributing writers, artists, collectors and gallerists observe and reflect on contemporary art and analyse international developments in contemporary culture, offering its readers both intimacy and immediacy through an unusually open editorial approach that is not afraid of controversy and provocation.

Apocalypticotrashecocidocious - Censored 08
Apolline et Clémentine Labrosse
Censored Magazine - 20.00€ -

« Apocalypticotrashecocidocious », l’édition Censored 08, parle d’écologie et de luttes anticapitalistes, de vivant et d’humilité

Ses recherches, textes et productions artistiques mènent à une conclusion : l’urgente nécessité de faire front commun pour quitter les logiques d’exploitation hyperviolentes envers la terre, les espèces, les femmes, minorités de genre et personnes racisées. Politiser le rapport que nous entretenons à nos territoires mutilés, qu’ils soient urbains ou ruraux. Comprendre comment le capitalisme s’est érigé en culte quasi religieux fondé sur la dépossession des savoirs, le déracinement des émotions, l’anti-spiritualité et l’individualisme. Il est alors question de militances joyeuses et du refus de la fatalité, de relations inter-espèces, de spiritualités noires, d’écologie au quotidien, de culture white trash et de futurs possibles.

Comment penser l’écologie lorsque c’est notre propre mode d’existence qui parasite le vivant ? Qu’apprendre des mammifères marins ou des espèces invertébrées ? Quels arts, récits et spiritualités pour aller au-delà des imaginaires dystopiques féministes et engendrer l’action ? Comment s’organiser collectivement tout en apprenant à rester à sa place et sans hiérarchiser ?

F.R. David - Zeros And Ones
K. Bentele, A. Gritz, W. Holder, G. Leung (eds.)
uh books - 10.00€ -

Riffing off the title, this volume includes an interview with Carolyn Lazard – an artist whose conceptual and often spare videos, sculptures, installations, and performances explore the full amplitude of relation – by Catherine Damman, plus a feature on New York-based contemporary artist Tishan Hsu, whose practice examines the “embodiment of technology”, and contributions by time-based media artist Silvia Kolbowski, for whom political resistance, the unconscious, and structures of spectatorship are a central concern of all her projects; choreographer and dancer Yvonne Rainer; and science fiction author Octavia Butler.

Retroactively compiled from the curators*’ footnotes to the exhibition handout of the 2021 exhibition Zeros and Ones, at KW Berlin.

Dedicated to the Sadie Plant book of the same name (Zeros + ones: digital women + the new techno culture, 1997), the issue embodies a (cybernetic) reading & writing machine, as it co-authors artists’ work.

* Edited with Kathrin Benthele, Anna Gritz, and Ghislaine Leung - the edition has 180 pages, 4 colour plates, two bookmarks, an otherwise unavailable postcard donated by the Stanley Brouwn estate, and… SIXTEEN possible covers, reproducing a work by Lutz Bacher.

Girls Like Us #14 - Letters of Disappointment
Jessica Geysel, Sara Kaaman, Katja Mater, Marnie Slater (eds.)
Girls Like Us - 10.00€ -

Considered an ‘ugly feeling’ by society’s norm, we’re not supposed to vocalize what and who is letting us down. We’re supposed to stay positive, get organized and act, instead of lingering in negative emotions. We’re supposed to be productive. But making space for disappointment can be a strategy of dissensus. Instead of wallowing in impotence, to make explicit what is not meeting expectations for this world can be an act of renouncing and making cracks in the status quo, while not giving up allegiance that another world is possible.

In Living a Feminist Life, Sara Ahmed writes: ‘we might think of how becoming feminist put us in touch with all that sadness, all those emotions that represent a collective failure to be accommodated to a system as the condition of possibility for living another way.’

In this issue we hope to plant the seeds of this rebellion by collecting a larger body of letters of disappointment. No matter how vague, impersonal, unimportant, futile, banal, or contingent these memories may seem; when shared and brought into a wider collective context, political desire may slip out from between the lines and build a corpus of transfeminist inheritance.

While spending some time with a tarot deck in preparation for this issue we obviously pulled the card of disappointment. In this deck, the illustration shows a beautiful drought: five crystal cups, which in the other cards overflow with fresh water, are shown here empty and dry.

‘The Five of Cups stands for an emotional crisis. It might be that unconscious fears come true, it could tell that feelings are disrupted or wasting away, the soul is empty and unfulfilled. In the sequence of the cups, the Five is the logical consequence of the Four. The grey tristesse that was lurking behind the luxury’s glamour is now exposed, the ‘truth is out’. The Five of Cups implies the loss of illusion, the realization of a deception. It hurts, but is necessary when we don’t want to spend the rest of our lives with our heads in the sand.’

We leave it up to you to imagine the possibilities or boundaries of what spending time with disappointment can make happen, for you, in your community, in the world.

Girls Like Us #5 - Play
Jessica Geysel, Sara Kaaman, Katja Mater, Marnie Slater (eds.)
Girls Like Us - 8.00€ -

In a world with too many choices and too little time to explore, play is an excellent strategy. Objects, roles, bodies, settings – anything can be transformed in play. Playing across time, space, architecture, beds, houses, lives, papers. Suddenly a chair is a plane is a stroy is an animal is an avatar is a new reality. Making up worlds, filming them. Surfing warm and cold waves. Playing with identities. Playing en masse. Playing to be free.

A digital conversation with performance artist boychild, writer Chris Kraus on beer brewing and BDSM, music producer and artist Fatima Al Qadiri on her 1989 haircut, Californian surfers by Eve Fowler & Mariah Garnett, curator Annick Kleizen recapturing the artist residency circuit from a hammock in Brazil, artist Jesse Darling paraphrasing Drake, musicians The Knife dissecting their communal experiment ‘Shaking The Habitual’ through the eyes of their collaborators.

Featuring Boychild, Chris Kraus, Wu Tsang, Jesse Darling, Fatima Al Qadiri, Jam Rostron, Marit Östberg, Hanne Lippard, Kapwani Kiwange, Maroussia Rebecq, Kenji Minogue, Mariah Garnett, Eve Fowler, Lily van der Stokker, Rachel de Joode, Mademoiselle Yulia, Katja Mater, Sarah Forbes Keough, Annick Klezine, Emily Roysdon, Analisa Teachwroth, Jess Arndt, Martin Falck, Laura Davis, Mandy Pernell, Amy Sillman and Jesper Strombäch Eklund.

HOOT nr. 9 — Moyra Davey & Sophie T. Lvoff
Moyra Davey & Sophie T. Lvoff
GUFO - 8.00€ -

The 9th HOOT pops up for the winter 2022-23, but the conception of this issue started well over a year ago at our beloved Plage Avant (Traduttore, traditore’s studio, Marseille). 

We met Sophie T. Lvoff at many openings and art related events in Marseille these last few years, having a practice that appears mainly as photography, Gufo got curious about all the processes that she uses which involve sound, installation, writing… and more. She welcomed us in her studio of the city of Marseille where she recently settled.

We found out about the “trompe-l’œil” of this iconic checkered table, witnessed the installations of translucid and colored objects evolving on the sunny wall, and looked through her photographic chamber it’s called a large-format camera, but this is funny… For this issue, Sophie suggested to interview another artist, Moyra Davey, who also works in photography and writing, and appeared to have shared experiences too.

The topics of everyday life, intimacy that images embody in both their works, take another dimension as soon as their thoughts, voices and writing expand and express the entirety of their gestures.

This issue is the first interview between two native English-speaking artists, who have ties to the French language from childhood.

The penpals are the main characters of that encounter where we are very welcome to join in their very generous conversations. This is only an excerpt of a long and well referenced correspondence.

BRAIDS is a 130 pages-long publication that features both visual and written works of 20 young creatives. The desire of BRAIDS is to expand the idea of queerness beyond the borders of identity. The journal exists to host bodies that deny framing and dare to expose the vulnerability of their difference. The publication is thus a woven story of the contemporary globalised queer, insecure but daring, honey-glazed yet continuously aching.

The Afterimage Reader
Mark Webber (ed.)
The Visible Press - 30.00€ -

The independent British film journal Afterimage published thirteen issues between 1970 and 1987. International in scope, it surveyed the many forms of radical cinema during an extraordinary period of film history.

Having emerged in the wake of post-1968 cultural and political change, Afterimage charted contemporary developments with special issues on themes such as the avant-garde, Latin American cinema and visionary animation, and also looked back at early film pioneers. It published many of the leading critics of the period and vitally provided a forum for filmmakers’ writings and manifestos.

This indispensable collection includes texts by scholars Noël Burch, Roger Cardinal, B. Ruby Rich and Peter Wollen, filmmakers Jean Epstein, Jean-Luc Godard, Derek Jarman and Jan Švankmajer, plus extended interviews with Hollis Frampton and Raúl Ruiz, and more.

The Afterimage Reader is edited by Mark Webber and features new contributions from two of the journal’s editors, Simon Field and Ian Christie.

How to Become Irrésistibles
sabrina soyer (ed.)
Self-Published - 12.00€ -  out of stock

How to become Irrésistibles est une édition de l'école supérieure des beaux-arts de Bordeaux réalisée avec la maison d'édition How to Become.

Cette édition est née de l'énergie d'un groupe d'autrices étudiantes de l'école des beaux arts de Bordeaux. Elles (car il s'agit d'une majorité de femmes) se rassemblent dans les séminaires Irrésistibles – briser les cases (art-femmes-territoires) dirigés par Marie Legros, artiste et professeure. Ce séminaire a été créé par cette dernière en 2016 afin d'encourager les pratiques féministes dans l'écriture. Qu'est-ce que c'est ? Des façons autres d'écrire le genre (l'identité) et les genres (littéraires), la langue (nationale) et de faire entrer du commun dans l'écriture (en arrêtant d'en exclure les femmes, les homos, les personnes racisées, les prolos). Les étudiantes qui participent à ce séminaire, issues de nationalités différentes, s'en sont saisis pour tordre la généalogie poétique franco-française masculiniste. L'autrice et éditrice sabrina soyer (éditions How to become), invitée à prendre part aux recherches dans ce séminaire, a coordonné cet ouvrage en l'axant sur des échanges de traduction entre autrices et l'usage du français comme langue étrangère. Le livre explore – c'est à dire donne de la valeur à – différentes formes de contacts entre auteurices : traductions, réponses adressées, écriture sous influence ou fan fiction... Chaque langue et voix se tisse en écho à une autre, pas de poèmes isolés, un grand texte comme un grand corps amassé par rebonds et frottements.

Avec : Hani Yikyung Han, Nayun Eom, Charles Dauphinot, Layan Qarain, Viktoria Oresho, Samuel R. Delany, Seobin Park, Jie Liang, Rami Karim, Yu-Wen Wang, Ching-Chuan Kuo, Mélanie Blaison, Barbara Sirieix, sabrina soyer, Yan Tong Liu, Jessica Guez Karen Johanns, Marie Legros M, Esther Sauzet, Mira Mattar.

Spike #73 – Vulnerability
Rita Vitorelli (Ed.)
Spike Magazine - 18.00€ -  out of stock

To live means to be exposed, to be vulnerable, and seek safety. But what if we give up control and don't try to cover the wounds any more? Could we ultimately transcend to openness? This is one of the core questions Spike asks in its autumn issue. From the imperfections of the body to automated text generators, from poor images to pop stars. Spike #73 is about art's soft underbelly, why writing in first person is a risk, why humans fear each other, and grappling with grief, paranoia, and intoxication. Let's find out what happens if we take off our shells.

With contributions by: McKenzie Wark, Marlene Dumas, Tosh Basco, James Richards, Raimundas Malašauskas, Joanna Walsh, Kandis Williams, Mire Lee, Gustav Metzger, Rob Horning, Tea Hacic-Vlahovic, Constance Debré, Luca Lo Pinto, Simone Forti...

Robida magazine n. 8 — Isola Otok Island
Associazione Robida - 25.00€ -  out of stock

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.

Worms #5 'Impurity'
Clem Macleod (Ed.)
Worms Magazine - 24.00€ -  out of stock

In this issue, Worms explores New Narrative alongside writers working today that incorporate some of it’s themes. The cover star Saidiya Hartman talks with Rhea Dillon about the limits and processes of creating stories from the archive, while Camille Roy and Dodie Bellamy give insight into New Narrative from their experiences involved in the movement. Savannah Knoop tells about their life playing the character of J.T Leroy, while Calla Henkel delves into ideas of using other people’s narratives as our own. There’s lots of gleaning, lots of stealing and lots of hard truths coming from the human body. There is poetry and fiction and all of the usual bits, as well as an experimental cut up piece demonstrating the appropriation method that Kathy Acker (via William Burroughs) used in so much of her work. Many more worms to be found in these pages.

Saidiya Hartman, Camille Roy, Dodie Bellamy, Lynne Tillman, Estelle Hoy, Rhea Dillon, Savannah Knoop, Lauren Fournier, Madelyne Beckles, Joanna Walsh, Anne Turyn, Cristina Morales, Calla Henkel, Jenny Zhang


Press & Fold — Notes on making and doing fashion
Hanka van der Voet
Self-Published - 18.00€ -  out of stock

This Press & Fold issue on Resistance presents conversations, propositions and imaginations of fashion and resistance outside of fashion’s industrial context. For protest and resistance to become effective, it depends on community to generate, support and further it: with this issue we think further on these ideas of protest, activism and resistance in and around fashion, and not only in terms of clothing, and how it is portrayed in (fashion) imagery, but also in terms of how fashion is structured and organized: is fashion only able to thrive within a capitalist structure, or are there other possibilities as well? What ideas, initiatives and structures can be developed for fashion to become inclusive and generous to all participants? What needs to be resisted and what needs to be embraced? In that sense this issue of Press & Fold, as well as the previous issues, is a world-building exercise, and wants to show what we can do without, and what we need to move fashion towards becoming a generous to all participants involved?

Plant Magic - Poison∼Remedy
Elisa Pieper, Astarte Posch (eds.)
Hooops Magazine - 18.00€ -  out of stock

Plant Magic gathers writers, artists, poets, illustrators, plant-and-mushroom-lovers and ecological thinkers, to share their experiences, knowledges, and stories around plant and mushroom magic. Oscillating between poison and remedy, plants and mushrooms reconcile ambivalences. They are powerful agents that are unpredictable in their existence and effects. They hold potential for resistance, intelligence and knowledge beyond human understanding.

When we look at plants and mushrooms we see hope amongst ecological grief. Every day we witness this magic of growing organisms, transformation and resilience. We are looking to them for guidance while still learning to listen to their silent, sensual ways. Often, the act of listening itself can calm our buzzing minds and raging hearts and make meaning blossom in a wordless way. In this publication, you might encounter stories of creating relationships with plants and mushrooms, fungal intimacy, poetic love letters to plants, herbal spells, stories of becoming postcolonial mushrooms, tips for combating the disturbing presence of scorpions, an essay introducing you to psychedelic becoming and many visual contributions of more-than-human relations.
