Fair Arts Almanac 2019
Self-Published - 10.00€ -

In 2019 SOTA finished the first Fair Arts Almanac. The content of the book was generated during a week long summer camp in 2018 with about 70 contributors. The result was a bundling of tips & tricks, statements & demands, visions & ideas, dates & data, testimonies & voices, addresses & announcements on fairness within the complex relationships between the artistic, political and economic sphere. The compilation of various contributions in this first edition was deliberately associative and open for debate, full of contradictions, loose ends and inconsistencies.

Deleuzine Vol. 1 - Sprouting In All Directions
Lilly Marks, Sabeen Chaudhry (eds.)
Deleuzine - 15.00€ -  out of stock

Deleuzine: A Zine for Nobodies Without Organs is an experimental publication inspired by the writings of French philosopher Gilles Deleuze, as well as figures whose life or work can be said to exemplify aspects of Deleuze’s philosophy of life, including Antonin Artaud, Ezekiel Mphaphele’s Wanderers and Kathy Acker among others. Encompassing the fields of literature, philosophy, ethnography, archaeology, and the arts, the publication aims at a radical exploration (and exploitation) of word, image, and printed matter towards beauty, but also aesthetic and political freedom.

With contributions by: Egle Ambrasaite, Alex Aspden, Edoardo Biscossi, Sabeen Chaudhry, Ruby Conner, Genevieve Costello, Andrew Culp, Anna Luisa Di Lauro, Sophie Fitze, Roxman Gatt, Helena Grande, Rose Higham-Stainton, Sevana Holst, Patrick McAlindon, Geiste Kincinaityte, Michele Muraca, Holly Rowley, Katie Shannon, Natalie Stypa, Katarina Sylvan, Elaine Tam, Haydée Touitou, Samuel White, Romy Day Winkel.

Ventoline #3 – été 2021
Felicité Landrivon (ed.)
Brigade Cynophile - 8.00€ -  out of stock

Pourquoi faire un fanzine de musique entre filles? Pour contrer l’hypocrisie et la vacuité d’une presse dite «féminine», en réalité capitaliste et aliénante; pour réagir soit à l’insipidité d’une presse culturelle stérilisée par les discours de l’industrie, soit à la morgue de rédacteurs qui confondent authenticité et beaufitude, panache et insulte, et prennent encore la «meuf» pour une catégorie musicale.

Pour se rencontrer physiquement ou virtuellement, soulever des cailloux ensemble, échanger nos habits, éclairer les doutes autant que les évidences, se sentir moins seules. Pour se sortir un peu d’un flux digital qui nous rend malades, s’affranchir des likes, tanguer entre passé et futur (c’est quoi l’«actualité»? ça commence quand, ça finit quand?). Pour ne pas se rouler dans les formules toutes faites ou les bons sentiments, mais bâtir un truc concret, qui muscle la cervelle autant que les bras. Pour essayer de dresser des équations musique—texte—image dans sa tête, puis dans une surface rectangulaire. Et puis déconstruire des mythes, comme celui qu’il y a des gens qui peuvent écrire sur la musique et d’autres pas. Ça veut pas dire qu’on fait n’importe quoi, on se surprend même à redoubler d’une vigilance parfois épuisante: est-ce que je raconte pas trop ma vie? Est-ce qu’on voit que je fais du second degré? Est-ce qu’emploie le bon vocabulaire?

Dans ce 3e numéro de Ventoline, on déterre des reliques d’enfance, des histoires de migrations et de construction identitaire quand on est à la fois blanche et noire; on discute encore et toujours des relations entre le propre et le sale, le design et l’underground, le travail et l’amatorat; on parle de nos exigences et de ce que les autres attendent de nous; et puis parfois, forcément, on parle des relous.

Faute de temps, on n’a pas réussi à vous concocter de mots-croisés pour la plage, mais on vous souhaite quand même une agréable lecture et un été bien moelleux.

When Carrying Becoming Caring
Karolina Rybačiauskaitė
Self-Published - 8.00€ -

“In this recent publication (to be printed January 2021) created as a part of my residency at Artist-in-Residence 2020 Petrohradska kolektiv in Prague, I wanted to share a few thoughts on how ‘matter matters’ within artistic practices, but at the same time, it was my attempt to experiment with the ways of presenting research and let the reader trace it as it was evolving – through various forms of notes, readings, writings, and conversations.”

Karolina Rybačiauskaitė (b. 1992) is a researcher currently living between Vilnius and Prague. She studies Ph.D. in Philosophy at Vilnius University, also graduated in History and Theory of Art at Vilnius Academy of Arts. Her research is motivated by the instability of knowledge-making and by searching for the ways to take care of the complex patterns it creates. This involves studying the speculative account of ‘ecology of practices’ proposed by Isabelle Stengers, but also adding to it through various practical engagements with artistic and curatorial reworkings of their matters. 

Spring Brakers
The Sludgehead Contingent
Kraak - 12.00€ -

An account of Spring Brakers, a project launched during the so-called First Wave. Spring Brakers was an online platform hosting video performances by a different artist each week alongside podcasts on various topics focusing on other labels or musical persuasions.

For this publication, all of the musicians who participated in the project are profiled, resulting in a grounded and oddly inspiring collection of testimonies of how artistic practices are shaped by an era that is still ongoing.

Artists include locals such as Bear Bones, Lay Low, Quanta Qualia, Vica Pacheco, KRAMP, Orphan Fairytale, and more, as well as far-out friends like Ka Baird, MSHR, Jung An Tagen, Eric Frye, and so on.

Each profile has a handy QR to redirect to each artist's video, and each copy includes a code to download a compilation made especially for the publication.

The Films of Doris Wishman
Peggy Awesh (ed.)
Inpatient Press - 12.00€ -  out of stock

Some thirty years ago, the artist Peggy Ahwesh began to cultivate a fascination with the films of Doris Wishman, the prolific director behind grindhouse gems like Nude on the Moon (1961), Bad Girls Go to Hell (1965), and Let Me Die a Woman (1977), among many others. By that time, a number of Wishman titles had been released by VHS label Something Weird, and she had been profiled by Andrea Juno in the RE/Search compendium Incredibly Strange Films, granting her a small but fervent cult following. In the early ’90s, Ahwesh heard from musician Tom Smith that the elusive auteur was working at a sex shop in Florida. Determined to meet the doyenne of the skin flick in the flesh, Ahwesh flew down from New York with fellow filmmaker M.M. Serra in 1994 to surprise Wishman at the Pink Pussycat Boutique in Coconut Grove, Miami.

The fruits of this encounter would go into the making of The Films of Doris Wishman, a one-issue zine produced by Ahwesh in 1995, featuring collages drawn from Wishman ephemera given to Ahwesh in Florida, and writings on Wishman by Blossom Lefcourt, programmer Joel Shepard, filmmaker Keith Sanborn, and Ahwesh herself. “The films,” Ahwesh notes “offer the prerequisite weirdness of the genre, but they have a seedy underlying resonance of the fear of and hostility toward women in our world, which Doris describes in her own profound and tawdry way.”

Inpatient Press and Light Industry's new publication includes a complete facsimile of the original zine—long unavailable—as well as the heretofore unpublished transcript of Ahwesh, Serra, and Smith’s 1994 video interview with Wishman at the Pink Pussycat, plus a brief essay on Wishman by Ahwesh, which first appeared in the Village Voice. Experimental cinema and exploitation pictures would seem to exist at opposite ends of film's outer reaches, but every so often, as with Ahwesh and Wishman, their stars align.

Forms of Public Privacy
Sophia Holst
Self-Published - 5.00€ -  out of stock

Forms of Public Privacy is part of the larger FORMAT 2019 exhibtion ‘Changing Attitudes’ in Z33, Hasselt. As a critique on the current urban trend to overpragram and overdesign Belgium cities, and Western cities in general, a reasearch is done into five cases of abandoned and un-maintained spaces in Brussels. In the exhibition a series of sculptural models show architectural elements of the investigated spaces that provide a certain spatial intimacy and public privacy. These models, together with photographs of Axel de Marteau and a publication, argue for the value of these abandoned and un-programmed spaces within an urban setting. Their informal programs such as hangout spots, living spaces and meetings spaces form a vital part of the social spaces and commons of our cities.

This is the publication to that research.

Notes on The School For Temporary Liveness
Lauren Bakst (Ed.)
University of Arts School of Dance - 8.00€ -  out of stock

This publication gathers reflections on and responses to the School for Temporary Liveness, a week-long event that brought performances, workshops, talks, conversations, and new formats for study together within the poetic frame of a school. All who participated were invited to consider themselves students of the school, and to move through several zones of encounter —the Classroom, the Library, Study Hall, and Night School— each of which engaged different modes of viewing and participation, thereby generating radically different choreographies of assembly for the practice of study. The contributions in this publication, all written by students of the school, animate the matter of betweenness that became, upon reflection, the most essential part of the school’s pedagogy. What these generous contributions make clear is that knowledge is not produced by school, rather, it emerges from our experiences of moving through school. Such knowledge becomes tangible to us through what we notice, what we remember, and most crucially, how we weave these experiences together.

Contributions by: Lauren Bakst, Rebecca Schneider, Jon Baldwin, Thomas F. DeFrantz, Andrew J. Smyth, Connie Yu, VK Preston and Donna Faye Burchfield.

Nat Marcus, Zoe Darsee
Tabloid Publications - 5.00€ -  out of stock

The poems of TABLOID (Zoe Darsee's Sympathies & Nat Marcus' Interview) reflect the position of its writers as actors and interpreters, as participants in pop and club culture, and as agents within a community. TABLOID is a relic of a social scene (Berlin, 2014), as such, its effects are intended to be both social and literary. The texts are brash, heartfelt, retributive and performative - they place the form of a poem alongside a conversation, rumor, or Facebook message.

Favoring this state of disposal over delicacy, the everyday over the elevated, TABLOID is produced on newsprint. The poems are scaled to the size of a column of gossip or current events; unbound, the pages will wear, shift, and possibly have a falling out. TABLOID is a newspaper founded in Berlin in the late spring of 2014. All poetry included in the first issue was written during that time and through the summer.
