Small Gods — Perspectives on the Drone
Alex Quicho
Self-Published - 15.00€ -

Since the first military drone strikes, the drone has been seen as emblematic of Western hegemony, emphasising the asymmetry of modern warfare. The military drone, whose combined surveillance and killing technology was first realised in the 1980s, has given rise to today’s consumer drone, even as drone warfare continues to incinerate civilians in areas of Asia and Africa. By exploring the use of the drone as medium in the works of three artists — Laura Poitras, Anne Imhof, and Korakrit Arunanondchai — Small Gods examines how the drone’s new, consumer format has not left this bloodied legacy behind, but instead imports it into everyday life. It presents a broad and detailed analysis of how socioeconomic and geopolitical concerns have shaped image-making practices, not only in concept but in form, and considers how this has changed our perceptions of humanity itself.

Meet Me In The Present: Documents and their Afterlives
Alex Quicho, Camilla Brown, Hatty Nestor, ao (eds.)
Self-Published - 15.00€ -

Meet Me In The Present: Documents and their Afterlives is an anthology of essays which examines the power of collective action. Spanning twenty-one acts of resistance — from letters exchanged between black power activists to the ethos of protest being brought into the Victoria and Albert Museum — and with an afterword by critic Orit Gat, these essays consider what it means to survive against all odds within a changing society. Drawing from the motives and experiences of those who have protected the right to access shared resources, Meet Me in the Present tells the stories of these diverse defenders. The book calls for public spaces, and for ideas to be made public in a time when ‘the commons’ is increasingly under attack.

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.

Printed in 2021.

Monique Wittig was a French author and feminist theorist particularly interested in overcoming gender and the heterosexual contract. She published her first novel, L'opoponax, in 1964. Her second novel, Les Guérillères (1969), was a landmark in lesbian feminism.

Collective Wandering
Lenn Cox
Self-Published - 28.00€ -

Collective Wandering, Hanging Out With Our Everyday Ecology, is not a manual in the traditional sense, with linear instructions or guidelines - rather, it is a hopefully engaging and activating collection of insights, moments and encounters, experienced during my continuing artistic research On Tour. What started out as a solo adventure consciously evolved into a collaborative and collective journey.

The intention of this manual is to inspire and support kindred individuals who are in search of an alternative rhythm of learning-working-living. Sharing multiform co-production processes and rituals of self-organisation concerning our common everyday lives.

Accompanying my own contributions, I have invited various practitioners who resonate with me on a personal and professional level to respond to our shared experiences, from and in relation to their respective practices. With contributions by Tigrilla Gardenia (Damanhur), Sepideh Ardalani (Massia), Jessica Gysel (Girls Like Us, Mothers & Daughters Bar), Tomboys Donʼt Cry, Lucas Meyer (Sanctuary Slimane), Katerina Tarnovska (Asgarda), Alya Hessy, Lucie Chaptal (we made together), Marlies van Hak, Aliki van der Kruijs, Guusje de Bruin, Melanie Bomans, Niki Milioni, Rosanne van Wijk, Sanne Karssenberg, Femke de Vries.

Flatland: A Romance of Many Dimensions
Edwin A. Abbot
Self-Published - 8.50€ -  out of stock

Flatland: A Romance of Many Dimensions is an 1884 satirical novella by the English schoolmaster Edwin Abbott Abbott. Writing pseudonymously as "A Square," the book used the fictional two-dimensional world of Flatland to offer pointed observations on the social hierarchy of Victorian culture. However, the novella's more enduring contribution is its examination of dimensions.

Several films have been made from the story, including a feature film in 2007 called Flatland. Other efforts have been short or experimental films, including one narrated by Dudley Moore and the short films Flatland: The Movie and Flatland 2: Sphereland starring Martin Sheen and Kristen Bell.

Boeing N° 737-800 in F#m
Gonçalo Lamas
Self-Published - 10.00€ -

Concurrently: ode, elegy, satyre, Boeing Nº 737-800 in F♯m awakes and takes off, lands and falls asleep, in between cold sweats and time zones. Triangulating the distance from ground to body, moving though still, to sun, blinding though eyeless, amidst a text searching for sense in an economy of simulations, value suspended 38000 feet above the ground. 

The anatomy of the world’s most popular commercial airplane serves as test tube to rehearse, under the common denominator of a possible fall, a motley set of anxieties, crossing borders, with and without passport. Mirror-play, annotated between the internal voice of a passenger, by the window, their dialogue with the Sun and a chorus of various interjections, from cockpit to exhaust pipe.

Rush Print 1 - Bad Type
Benjamin McMillan and Dong Bin Han
Self-Published - 20.00€ -

“May we want to reckon the time of the position ‘student’ not from the progressive aspect of amateur towards pro. Besides the fact that every step of life is an ongoing learning, there’s a clear physical(virtual) circumstance of school and an educational boundary for student, which makes student’s moment independent from any other vocations. Extra time of working on one subject with mistakenly expended deadlines, being experimental and anti-aesthetic by testing its performance, the growth on having own tone of (visual) voice while mumbling and simultaneously thinking the mumbling can be also a kind of voice. There are untamed beauties in this position.”

The inaugural issue of Rush Print focuses on the topic ‘BAD TYPE.’ A loose synonym of bad here is amatuer or ugly which is what contributors deliver as a student. The content ranges from interviews, workshops and anecdotes with 2020 participants of Grafisch Arnhem. The entire publication is typeset in student-made typefaces so the book also functions as a type specimen.

Rush Print is new magazine annually releasing out from the contributors of Grafisch Arnhem. Throughout spreads, it contains graphic design related subjects such as Types, Time, Talks, etc.

Time is an Arrow, Error
Katja Mater
Self-Published - 26.00€ -

Two clock-faces are staring at each other.
They are two sides of one thing, as different as they are the same.
They move as two bodies revolving around each other, into a tender embrace.
A kiss, made of time, in time.
Mirrored shape shifters, their hour-numbers climbing on each other's shoulders.
Running up against the limits of their own usefulness, clocklikeness.

A book by Katja Mater, with a text by Amelia Groom designed by Elisabeth Klement
79 clocks, 192 pages, open spine, 17 × 21 cm

Every Time I Am Away From The Internet, I wonder if I am loved
Gabriel Rene Franjou
Self-Published - 15.00€ -

You know the feeling : you’re online, right, and for no particular reason, you start to feel weird. Like something glorious is about to happen. And then, just like that, it fades, the glory has passed; now you feel sad. Did you miss it?

Oh, what a time to be alive. I love this life. I sometimes wonder whether it loves me back, but I try and convince myself that such things don’t matter. Nothing does, and that’s the best part.
Well, anyway, this is an exploration of some of the feelings that could crush us in the digital 21st century.
