Markus Miessen - Crossbenching Toward a Proactive Mode of Participation as a Critical


Spatial Practice
Sternberg Press 2016 ISBN 9783956792205 Acqn 26095
Pb 12x19cm 108pp 11.75
With a preface by Armen Avanessian, an introduction by Hannes Grassegger and Markus
MIessen, and a postscript by Patricia Reed
At the heart of this book is a simple and profound proposition: to do' architecture is to immerse
oneself in a conflictual process of material productionparticipation is not a productive encounter
of multiple practitioners and stakeholders, but a set of conflicts, negotiations, manoeuvres, and
swindles between and within a multiplicity of agents, human and nonhuman alikeequally
including architects, clients, financiers, and builders, say, but also silicon, plastic, concrete, each
with its conflicting aims and different material means to achieve them. Every building is thus the
materialization of such encounter. So, despite the hubris of the field, none of the parties to such
an encounter can ultimately control that the resultarchitecture (unlike real estate), according to
Miessen, belongs to no one but affects and is affected by everyoneand this proposition asks
that we reframe questions of ethics and politics. They can no longer be the property of an
individual but a collective set of interrelationsit is through such profound departure from the
terms of architecture that Miessens new book demands nothing less than to re-imagine how we
might finally become citizens.

Architecture, Goldsmiths, University of London.

Roee Rosen - The Blind Merchant


Sternberg Press 2016 ISBN 9783956791864 Acqn 26094
Pb 22x28cm 312pp 145ills 19.95
Foreword by Joshua Simon
An artist book juxtaposing text and image, history and its revision, The Blind Merchant was
produced from 1989 to 1991. The work is composed of three elements: the complete text of
Shakespeares The Merchant of Venice; a parasitical text written by Roee Rosen that runs
alongside the play, adopting the perspective of the principal antagonist Shylock, the Jewish
moneylender; and 145 drawings that present an alternative approach to the dramas staging and
casting of charactersShylock is depicted as the blind merchant with drawings made by the artist
while blindfolded.
The book is also telling of its time, produced at the moment when the idea of originality was up for
question, the subaltern was asked to speak, and just before Silicon Valley took over our
imaginations. A compelling superimposition of Shakespeare, The Blind Merchant shows that
classic stories are still open for new angles of approach that reflect the times of its reading.

Hannah Hoch - Life Portrait


The Green Box 2016 ISBN 9783941644847 Acqn 26017
Hb 23x23cm 96pp 40col ills 30
The Life Portrait is the last art work by Hannah Hch made between July 1972 and March 1973.
The photographers Liselotte und Armin Orgel Khne encouraged the artist to create the selfportrait in form of a collage and provided her with the original photographs.
The Life Portrait, with the dimensions 130 x 150 cm, is the biggest collage Hch has ever made.
It marks the final point in her full and active life that spanned almost 100 years. The viewer gains
an insight into the story of the extraordinary and self-confident woman who went through all the
highs and lows and in the same time gets an impression of life during the last century.
Hannah Hch defined 38 sections of the image, gave detailed explanations on them and told
about her personal experience in connection with these. These 38 parts are pictured in the book
alongside the overview of the entire collage. The accompanying text, together with the original
quotes, takes a closer look at Hannah Hch, her artistic work as well as at the political and social
events of her time. Based on the stories and anecdotes, the text reflects the life of the artist and
completes the collage with the additional biographical information.
The book covers a wide range of interest: art fans, scholars and historians as well as young
people interested in art can get an insight into the life of the artist Hannah Hch.

'Hacking Habitat' presents a pressing, topical theme that appeals to a wide audience: the way we
are controlled by technological systems and the way counterforces are organized. Innovation
goes hand in hand with control: surveillance cameras observe us and inimitable Google
algorithms manipulate our behaviour. We risk losing control over our lives. Worldwide, people are
waking up to the fact that they need to regain control of their lives and reclaim their living
environment (habitat). In a collection of essays, this book makes us aware of the high-tech
systems that have control over our society, and provides tools to use to escape the regulation
and control.

Palais De Tokyo 2016 ISBN 9782840668145 Acqn 26098
Pb 16x24cm 96pp 54ills 42col 14.95
Conceived as an emotional structure, , Mlanie Matranga's exhibition at the Palais de Tokyo
is intentionally equivocal. Its very titlein Mandarinputs us in an awkward situation, just as
when we need to ask a stranger our way in an unknown city, or when we have to admit our
inability to understand a message before being even able to start a conversation. Mlanie
Matranga combines in her exhibition signs that reflect upon interiority with elements linked to
social attitudes and habits. We find ourselves amid familiar objects and generic forms, in
situations where self-expression, paradoxically, is possible only once identity is lost. They are
places to be alone with others.

With each piece, Patrick Neu turns traditional technique on its head and embarks on new
experiments, which he extends for as long as required. The artist works with materials not often
found in the art world: bees' wings, lampblack on glass, crystal, wax, blocks of Chinese ink,
butterfly wings, sloughed snakeskin, eggshells, charred paper, etc. For 30 years, Patrick Neu has
been developing his art discreetly. The works selected for his exhibition at the Palais de Tokyo
are a nod towards this perilous dialogue with the materials and the memory of the world.

Ragnar Kjartansson's singular work is a cross between performance and cinema, sculpture and
opera, plein air painting and music. He often produces large-scale multidisciplinary projects and
the production of his works often requires the collaboration of several participantsactors,
musicians, friends and family members. Experimenting the mechanisms of theatre and the
dramatic impulses of tragedy, Ragnar Kjartansson succeeds in bringing emotions out of
melodramatic actions and in revealing the reality on which relies every interpretation. Through
repetition, which is genuine motif in his work, Ragnar Kjartansson enlightens the theatricality and
efforts at work in everyday life.

Jean-Michel Alberola
Palais De Tokyo 2016 ISBN 9782840668596 Acqn 26104
Pb 16x24cm 96pp 57ills 52col 13.95
Political, poetic, committed, profound: Jean-Michel Alberola's oeuvre is an artist's reaction to
reality, human feelings and the state of the world. His exhibition at the Palais de Tokyo triggers a
voyage that stimulates the eye and the mind as it maps the under appreciated diversity of his
work. Associating bodily and geographical fragments with ambiguous statements and injunctions,
this major and utterly distinctive figure on the French art scene shapes rebuses that challenge
both our way of seeing and the role of art in society. And yet, in its intermingling of artistic
speculation and political questioning, and of conceptualism, abstraction and figuration, Alberola's
unique, hard-hitting oeuvre is never without its touch of humour.

Florian & Michel Quistrebert


Palais De Tokyo 2016 ISBN 9782840668602 Acqn 26105
Pb 16x24cm 96pp 71ills 65col 13.95
In their works, mingling colours, light, mass and illusions, Florian and Michael Quistrebert play
back the main motifs of modern art, while perverting them, through a particular approach to
matter. At the Palais de Tokyo, they are deploying a vast optical theatre in which experience of
their paintings and videos is disturbed by the glittering and internal motions of objects. The
Quistrebert brothers' ambiguous pieces evoke the impossibility of grasping a painting. Their
pictures are never what they show or, rather, never stabilize themselves around their subjects.
The artists explore perception by handling it in various ways, which can be intellectual, optical,
symbolic or else occult.

Michael De Plaen - Mode Muntu


Prisme Editions 2015 ISBN 9782930451183 Acqn 24768
Hb 25x30cm 256pp 170ills 150col 47.95
Growing up in Lubumbashi, Michal De Plaen came into contact with many artists, one of whom
in particular left a great impression on him. After moving to Belgium, he became a photographer
in 2009, producing reportages about lost traditions, urban demography, and identity. Yet he had
not forgotten Mode Muntu. This extensive monograph reveals a painter whose humility in no way
restrains his work. With thorough documentation and research, De Plaen points to the dynamism
and originality of artistic activity in the Congo during the 1970s and 80s. There, outside any kind
of conformism, Mode Muntu paved the way for a distinctive, expressionist pictorial art rooted in
his culture.

Carolein Smits world is that of the grotesque, imperfect, suffering, and maligned. Her ceramic
works are exuberant in their figuration and vivid colours, and portray frequently recurring themes
in art history, combined with a scientific fascination that is nothing short of macabre. Flayed and
broken figures, their muscles glistening and bones protruding, stand and stare defiantly. Wild,
hair-covered men strike ithyphallic poses, their bestial attributes invoking an unrestrained, savage
nature. Women couple with skeletons and animals, while symbols of power and religion bejewel
the seemingly omnipresent decay. With texts by Frits Achten and Aenout Hagen.

Towards Visibility - Exhibiting Contemporary Drawing 1964-1980


Roven 2015 ISBN 9782918450276 Acqn 26039
Pb 18x23cm 160pp 35ills 21
Drawing is the entry point for this books examination of a crucial moment in the recent history of
exhibitions. It is a vital piece of research, at a time when the medium of drawing has never been
so omnipresent, indeed has become one of the most often-displayed mediums in contemporary
art spaces. At the same time, drawing surprisingly borrows the format of history painting, the
aesthetics of photography and its mechanisms from those of large installations. Thus at a time
when the age- old distinction between drawing and other forms of art is tending to disappear or
be forgotten, and drawing is displayed and viewed on an equal footing with other artworks, a
number of questions need to be addressed.

Abonnenc takes as a departure point the ethnographic and entomologic collections that his
grandfather gathered in Gabon and French Guyana in 1931 while working as a health officer.
Such practice inevitably raises questions about the ways in which modern scientific knowledge
was closely tied to and facilitated by colonialism. This book, based on a series of discursive
events organised in the framework of Abonnencs project, fosters and continues critical
conversations between artists, researchers, activists, and theorists. With contributions by Lotte

Amateur is the first comprehensive publication about Wendelien van Oldenborghs moving image
works, and their accompanying installations. Developed over the past ten years of her practice,
these works explore communication and interaction between individuals, often against the
backdrop of a unique public location, in order to cast attention on repressed, incomplete, and
unresolved histories. Through the staging of these encounters on film, van Oldenborgh enables
multiple perspectives and voices to coexist, and brings to light political, social, and cultural
relationships and how they are manifested through social interactions.
The publication is generously illustrated and brings together a wealth of texts by artists, curators,
and writers who have been key interlocutors with van Oldenborgh, and who each offer in-depth
observations and reflections on a work from her oeuvre. These authors include Nana AduseiPoku, Ricardo Basbaum, Frdrique Bergholtz, Eric de Bruyn, Binna Choi, David Dibosa, Denise

L'Image Volee - curated by Thomas Demand


Fondazione Prada 2016 ISBN 9788887029666 Acqn 26083
Hb 21x28cm 300ills 50
Limage vole, includes more than 90 works produced by over 60 artists from 1820 through the
present day. Demands idea for the exhibition is to explore the way we all rely on pre-existing
models, and how artists have always referred to existing imagery to make their own. Questioning
the boundaries between originality, conceptual inventiveness and the culture of the copy, the
project focuses on theft, authorship, annexation and the creative potential of such pursuits. The
exhibition presents three possible investigations: the physical appropriation of the object or its
absence; theft as related to the image per se rather than the concrete object itself; and the act of
stealing through the making of an image. The exhibition has been conceived as an eccentric,
unconventional exploration of such topics through empirical inquiry. Rather than an encyclopedic
analysis, it offers visitors an unorthodox insight into a voyage of artistic discovery and research.
