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

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.

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?

DAISYWORLD MAGAZINE is a seasonal art publication on perception, the sensory, the non-human, ecology & erotica with an emphasis on interconnectedness.

Spike #71 – Couples
Rita Vitorelli (Ed.)
Spike Magazine - 15.00€ -

For the latest Spike – #71: Couples—we're seeing double. This one is dedicated to partnerships in life, love, law, and labour. Whether you're a serial monogamist, married to your job, or sublimating your crushy feelings into all that you create, it's tough to deny the role that romance—or its absence—plays in shaping our subjectivities. 

Might coupling be key to seeing beyond the self, opening us up to a more expansive, collaborative (co)existence? And do relationship breakdowns parallel wider social strife? Can the dusty old dyad be reconceived as radical? What happens when art-world couples blend business and pleasure?

Curl up with your soul mate—or settle into singledom—and grab a copy to read about the uses of love beyond love; the motivation posed by muses and rivals; psychoanalytic takes on partners' promises; along with artist-couples, curatorial duos, rom-com heroes, spectres, fembots, and beyond. 

With Chris Kraus, Asa Seresin, Whitney Mallett, Alenka Zupančič, Johanna Hedva, Sam Kriss, Calla Henkel & Max Pitegoff, Genesis & Lady Jaye Breyer P-Orridge, Darian Leader & Jamieson Webster, Eva & Franco Mattes, Tea Hacic-Vlahovic, and many more.
 
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.

Top Stories
Anne Turyn (ed.)
Primary Information - 30.00€ -

Top Stories was a prose periodical published from 1978 to 1991 by the artist Anne Turyn in Buffalo, New York, and New York City. Over the course of twenty-nine issues, it served as a pivotal platform for experimental fiction and art through single-artist issues and two anthologies. The entire run of Top Stories is collected and reproduced here across two volumes.

Top Stories primarily featured female artists, though in Turyn’s words a few men “crept in as collaborators.” Although primarily “a prose periodical” (as its byline often stated), the issues varied in form and aesthetics, pushing the boundaries of what prose could be and, from time to time, escaping the genre altogether. In fact, the only parameters required for participants were that the periodical’s logo and issue list be included on the front and back covers, respectively.

A great deal of the works are short stories by the likes of Pati Hill, Tama Janowitz, and Kathy Acker, whose Pushcart Prize–winning “New York City in 1979” appeared for the first time in book form as part of the series. Constance DeJong contributes “I.T.I.L.O.E.,” a widely unavailable work that features the artist’s trademark prose and is sure to please fans of her novel, Modern Love. The largest issue of the periodical is undoubtedly Cookie Mueller’s “How to Get Rid of Pimples,” which consists of a series of character studies of friends interspersed with photographs by David Armstrong, Nan Goldin, and Peter Hujar altered with freshly drawn blemishes.

Top Stories also celebrates less conventional literary forms. Issues by Lisa Bloomfield, Linda Neaman, and Anne Turyn take the form of artists’ books, juxtaposing image and text to construct tightly wound, interdependent narratives. Jenny Holzer and Peter Nadin present a collaborative work in copper ink comprised of truisms by Holzer on corporeal and emotional states and drawings by Nadin of abstract bodies. Janet Stein contributes a comic, while Ursule Molinaro provides a thorough index of daily life (and the contempt it produces) consisting of entries that were written just prior to lighting a cigarette.

Top Stories remains vitally defiant, an essential witness to what was the downtown literary and art-world underground.

Primary contributors include Kathy Acker, Laurie Anderson, Sheila Ascher, Douglas Blau, Lisa Bloomfield, Linda L. Cathcart, Cheryl Clarke, Susan Daitch, Constance DeJong, Jane Dickson, Judith Doyle, Lee Eiferman, Robert Fiengo, Joe Gibbons, Pati Hill, Jenny Holzer, Gary Indiana, Tama Janowitz, Suzanne Johnson, Caryl Jones-Sylvester, Mary Kelly, Judy Linn, Micki McGee, Ursule Molinaro, Cookie Mueller, Peter Nadin, Linda Neaman, Glenn O’Brien, Romaine Perin, Richard Prince, Lou Robinson, Janet Stein, Dennis Straus, Sekou Sundiata, Leslie Thornton, Kirsten Thorup, Lynne Tillman, Anne Turyn, Gail Vachon, Brian Wallis, Jane Warrick, and Donna Wyszomierski.

David Armstrong, Nan Goldin, JT Hryvniak, Peter Hujar, Nancy Linn, Trish McAdams, Linda Neaman, Marcia Resnick, Michael Sticht, and Aja Thorup all make appearances as well, contributing artwork for the covers or as illustrations.

Anne Turyn (b. 1954) is a photographer based in New York. Turyn’s work has been exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Kunsthalle Bern, Denver Art Museum, Walker Art Center, and Los Angeles County Museum of Art.

OEI #92-93 Lettrist Corpus: The Complete Magazines (1946–2016)
Frédéric Acquaviva; Jonas J. Magnusson, Cecilia Grönberg (eds.)
OEI editör - 40.00€ -

“Un livre qui fera date. Deux ans de recherches, 512 pages, 1.361 illustrations en quadrichromie, 119 revues lettristes parues de 1946 à 2016 pour un total de 1.200 ouvrages décrits (avec la couverture et le sommaire de chaque numéro). Qui d’autre que les éditeurs suédois de OEI (Jonas J. Magnusson et Cecilia Gronberg) aurait pu sortir ce travail anthologique? Personne!” — www.mauricelemaitre.org

“The ‘unreasonable’ idea for this ‘catalogue raisonné’ came to me as an attemps to draw up a complete inventory of all the journals and periodicals of the Lettrist group, from its birth until today. Because the lifespan of the Lettrist movement has exceeded that of all the other avant-garde movements, we are undoubtedly in front of the most immense corpus ever produced in terms of magazines, coverin a period from 1946 to 2016. It presents more than a hundred different titles with more than one thousand items and hundreds of authors. . . . I hope that this comprehensive work will give the reader an opportunity to understand the different paths of the Lettrist groups and the many areas addressed, if not shaken, beyond the books of Isidore Isou and Maurice Lemaître. Since other Lettrists have published relatively few monographic books, and very little outside their own magazines, OEI #92-93 is a unique database for most of the Lettrist texts that we can access, also making it possible for new readers to come across Lettrism.”

OEI #90/91 Sickle of Syntax & Hammer of Tautology
Jonas J. Magnusson; Cecilia Grönberg; Tobi Maier (eds.)
OEI editör - 30.00€ -  out of stock

OEI # 90-91: Sickle of Syntax & Hammer of Tautology offers the first English language overview of the history of concrete and visual poetry production in socialist Yugoslavia between 1968 and 1983.

By focusing on mass-produced examples of concrete poetry, this publication presents these poetic experiments as organically linked to social movements, critical theories, and youth cultural revolutions. In his extensive introduction, Sezgin Boynik, the guest editor of this special issue of OEI, discusses concrete and visual poetry in socialist Yugo-slavia as an uneven and combined development, and emphasizes its confrontational and organizational aspects.

By means of interviews, translations, reproductions, and theoretical and historical statements, OEI # 90-91 offers a picture of a very lively scene of concrete and visual poetry in Yugoslavia, which unfortunately is not as recognized interna-tionally as it would deserve.

Hoping that OEI # 90-91 could contribute to this task in a substantial way, we present episodes from the early years of OHO formation and its complex theories of words and things; an interview with Rastko Močnik on programmed art and political formalism; militant polemics of Goran Babić; Signalist contradictions; subjective structural devices of Judita Šalgo; zaum experiments of Vojislav Despotov; detective meta-texts of Slavoj Žižek; poetic self-management studies of Vujica Rešin Tucić; a feminist historicisation of Ažin school for experimental poetry; democratisation of visual poetry by Westeast; selections from special issues of the journals Pitanja, Problemi, Ulaznica, Dometi, Delo, Koraci, Vidik, Pegaz, and many other materials translated here for the first time and presented in one publication.

OEI #86/87 Publishing Practices, Publishing Poetics
Jonas J. Magnusson; Cecilia Grönberg; Tobi Maier (eds.)
OEI editör - 40.00€ -

Once more, an astonishing issue of OEI – a thrilling, compelling, stimulating feast of ideas regarding publishing and the book: the perfect big companion to read and hug in bed while the virus spreads outside.

Bringing together contributions from circa 130 publishing structures, publishing communities, magazines, small press endeavors, artists, poets, writers, editors, theoreticians, curators, scholars, and art bookstores, OEI # 86–87 reflects upon the challenges, pressures and possibilities of publishing and creating publics in different contexts and places in a time of far-reaching – economical, medial, political, social, technological – transformations.

The potential and the versatility of publishing open it to a diversity of practices and approaches in the arts, but as an eminently social form of art, a collective or micro-collective work with shared responsibilities, it is also a never-ending process of “crafting a variegated approach to how you create, publish, distribute, and build a social ecosystem around your efforts”, of trying to “build up and strengthen the community around these printed forms” (Temporary Services).

It is the conviction of OEI #86–87 that print has the power to play an important part in the construction of social spaces, of a social world. As Benjamin Thorel puts it in one of the essays in the issue, “conceiving of the dynamics of publishing as making publics as well as making things public is not a pun – insofar as the artists/publishers encompass, beyond the book itself, its possible ‘lives’, imagining the different spaces, and the different people, amongst whom a publication will circulate.” This is what Michael Warner has called “a public [as] poetic worldmaking”, implying “that all discourse or performance addressed to a public must characterize the world in which it attempts to circulate, projecting for that world a concrete and livable shape, and attempting to realize that world through address.”

This is also, as stressed by Annette Gilbert and others, what can make publishing such an active force, a force co-constituting texts and publications and publics. Indeed, with Michalis Pichler, it is tempting to say that in publishing as practice – perhaps more than in any other art field – “artists have been able to assert the aesthetic value of their own socio-politically informed concerns and to engage, often under precarious conditions, in cultural activities fully aligned with their political values.”

OEI #86–87 also includes sections on and with contemporary poetry from Canada; Fluxus publishing; Krister Brandt/Astrid Gogglesworth; Kalas på BORD (Öyvind Fahlström); Lars Fredrikson; Claude Royet-Journoud’s poetry magazines; Carl Einstein; Gail Scott; Ållebergshändelser; OEI #79: edit/publish/distribute!; “det offentligas försvinnande” and many many other things.

OEI #80/81 The Zero Alternative
Jonas J. Magnusson; Cecilia Grönberg; Tobi Maier (eds.)
OEI editör - 35.00€ -

OEI #80-81 is not an anthological publication, and has no representative ambition. It is a montage-based publication trying, in as material a way as possible, to register, prolong, transform and reflect upon energies from the work of Portuguese artist Ernesto de Sousa and his fellows (Alberto Carneiro, Túlia Saldanha, Álvaro Lapa, Fernando Calhau, Lourdes Castro, Ana Vieira, Ana Hatherly, E.M. de Melo e Castro, António Barros...).

Ernesto de Sousa and his fellows defined themselves as aesthetic operators and worked as filmmakers, photographers, curators, critics, writers, folk art researchers, multimedia artists... OEI #80-81 also gathers texts on magazines such as Poesia Experimental, Operação, Nova, A Urtiga, and Alternativa; and works by artists from younger generations such as Isabel Carvalho, Paulo Mendes and Mariana Silva, in dialogue with that of de Sousa.

OEI #66 Poema/Processo (Process/Poem)
Jonas J. Magnusson; Cecilia Grönberg; Tobi Maier (eds.)
OEI editör - 35.00€ -

“We were not claiming European influences, as concrete poetry did. Europe would not accept a visual culture born in Brazil, so this claiming was necessary for concrete poetry, but not for poema/processo as it had pan-Latin-American connections” (Wlademir Dias-Pino)

Already a classic, this issue of OEI presents the Brazilian avant-garde movement Poema/Processo through a huge selection of images, poems, and short essays, showing the different strategies this movement used between 1967 an 1972 in order to survive and develop under the pressure of the militarian regime. Are also featured three other less-known Brazilian movements from the 60s, 70s and early 80s: poesia práxis, poesia marginal, pornismo.

HOOT nr. 6 — Vir Andres Hera
Gufo, Clément Faydit et Rozenn Voyer (eds.)
GUFO - 8.00€ -

Été 2021, Vir Andrès est à Marseille, en résidence aux ateliers Triangle-Astérides. Nous somme aperçu-e-s furtivement à un banquet intilué "Le temps que l'huile se colore" que nous avons préparé avec les différent-e-s membres de l'ateliers Vé. Il y avait des bols de glace qui fondaient, des soupes et des préparations fruitées, à la coriandre, aux abricots, au fenouil, des brioches et des chapeaux en pain. Vir était accompagné d'ami-e-s. Il a demandé "Où est Gufo?" alors je lui ai proposé de nous rencontrer bientôt, dans son atelier. Nous avond regardé quelques vidéos: pendant l'une d'entre elles, j'ai fermé les yeux. Les voix étaient plurielles, avec des inclinaisons, des nuances, des accents. Nous avond alors discuté de la nécessité des oralités ondoyantes et multiples. L'invitation pour des conversations au sein de la revue était alors lancée.

HOOT nr. 5 — Grégoire Devidal
Gufo, Clément Faydit et Rozenn Voyer (eds.)
GUFO - 8.00€ -

Cet été j’ai rappelé un ami, Grégoire Devidal, pour lui demander de ses nouvelles depuis que nous sommes chacun·e parti·e d’Amsterdam où nous y avons partagé quelques années. Il m’a parlé d’un projet de podcasts avec Agathe Boulanger et Gwendal Raymond.

Ayant partagé des moments de vie, de création, de tension, de doutes et beaucoup de moments de travail, il m’est apparu comme une nécessité de proposer ce nouveau numéro de HOOT à ces trois artistes. La parole et l’écriture sont au centre de leur pratique et de leurs recherches. Je leur ai alors confié mon questionnaire habituel pour m’effacer de la trame de ces conversations et laisser place à une nouvelle forme de dialogue : celui qu'iels se partagent sans que je ne les écoute, sans que je n'intervienne. Iels parlent entre-elleux, se questionnent et se meuvent comme autant d’échos infinis sur des parois fluides. Leurs échanges m’ont évoqué ceux des personnages des Vagues de Virginia Woolf dans la manière dont ils s'interpénètrent, dont l’identité des orateur·rice·s valse et les échanges se relaient plutôt que se répondent.

HOOT nr. 4 — The Soft Protest Digest
Gufo, Clément Faydit et Rozenn Voyer (eds.)
GUFO - 8.00€ -

The Soft Protest Digest centre ses recherches sur l'histoire de l'alimentation, de l'agriculture et des liens sociaux et politiques qui constituent une culture alimentaire. Le collectif croit en l'utilisation de la narration comme moyen de créer ou d'adapter des traditions alimentaires, des recettes et des façons de se nourrir qui tiennent compte de l'héritage culturel et des liens émotionnels entre celleux qui mangent et la gastronomie locale, dans une quête de résilience alimentaire.

Gufo a souhaité rencontrer les membres de ce collectif afin d’explorer les nécessités alimentaires dans lesquelles s’inscrit The Soft Protest Digest. Et puis, très vite, une intrigue s’est créée autour du nom de ce collectif : qu’est-ce qu’une douce manifestation ? Quels sont les liens avec l’alimentation ? Pouvons-nous doucement contester ? C’est-à-dire sans frustration ni violence ? Ce nom a fait écho à une édition dont j’ai imprimé le titre il y a quelque temps, il s’agit de “Radical softness as a boundless form of resistance”* ( dont la traduction pourrait être Une douceur radicale comme forme infinie de résistance). Pouvons-nous associer douceur, résistance, radicalité et alimentation ? Gufo vous invite alors, à lire nos conversations qui divaguent mais surtout à imaginer des banquets partagés dont la joie et les ventres pleins seront les témoins d’onctueuses révoltes.

Fantomas - Filmkritisch Tijdschrift #2
Bart Versteirt, Bjorn Gabriels, Inge Coolsaet (eds.)
Fantomas - 12.50€ -

Sex sells, heet het. Maar wat is er te koop? In de verstrengeling van intimiteit en professionaliteit staat meer op het spel dan de uitwisseling van lichaamssappen en valuta. Schaamte loert om het hoekje, terwijl het verlangen naar vrijheid ons roert. Film raakt dat allemaal aan, van verzuchtingen naar het ongrijpbare tot afbeeldingen van nog louter geprojecteerde wensdromen. Kijklustig tot in de kern vinden makers én toeschouwers in film een voorgespiegelde wereld, bestemd om te blijven bewegen.

Vijf essays en een beeldbijdrage van fotograaf Julie Scheurweghs vormen het thema ‘(not) suited for work’, waarin we het erotische beeld her-bekijken. Daarnaast koppelen tien niet-thematische artikels hun zoektocht naar vrijheid en utopie aan recente stromingen en ontwikkelingen.
