The Happy Hypocrite 10 - Tolstoyevsky

Publisher: Bookworks
Subject: Periodicals 
Stock: 

‘Tolstoyevsky is not a Russian writer; it is a monster of sorts – a chimera, a composite of two and true to neither one nor a sum. It can make jokes (and threats) fly so fast they skip the funny parts. Here it lends its name to an issue that is about how humour is often not humour, or about how it sometimes doesn’t work, and how half our lives are filled with things that don’t work. Which probably means they work, right?’ – Virginija Januškevičiūtė, from the Outro

The Happy Hypocrite – Tolstoyevsky is, ideally, like a room full of high-spirited people playing a game, trying to do or say some nonsense, folding embarrassment and losses in translation into part of the exchange. The main portion of the journal is made up of responses to an open call; submissions picked up on cues within two short stories: ‘Moles & Mice’ by Candice Lin, and ‘Tolstoyevksy’, written by Virginija Januškevičiūtė about a hospitable man with a house full of books who exclaimed ‘Oh I have read all your Tolstoyevskys!’ when asked what he had read.

With contributions and new work by ateate, David Bernstein, Monika Kalinauskaitė, Zoe Kingsley, Erika Lastovskyte, Michael Lawton, Candice Lin, Elena Narbutaitė, Nick Norton, Kim Schoen, Isabel Waidner, and Jonas Žakaitis. Complemented by old work (images, illustrations) from Pierre Bonnard, Giovanni di Paolo, Felix Vallotton, and Edouard Vuillard.

Carolee’s is the second issue of The Magazine of the Artist’s Institute.

Spike Art Quarterly #56 - Summer 2018

CULTURE WARS The culture wars are raging. Neoliberalism and right-wing populism have co-opted the critique of the 1960s and turned it against art, science and the democratic public sphere, while the left is consumed by infighting. This issue is about the return to battle, strategies of (dis-)engagement, and the question of what art is capable of in the aftermath of the great weirding.

Along with pieces on Christoph Schlingensief, Sandra Mujinga, Marianna Simnett, new American rappers, and the influence of the right on culture across Europe, Spike #56 features an essay by Alison Gingeras and Jamieson Webster on the failed experiment of Otto Muehl’s commune and what it can tell us about our own time.

e-flux journal. Art Without Death: Conversations on Russian Cosmism

Author: Julieta Aranda, Brian Kuan Wood, Stephen Squibb, Anton Vidokle (eds.)
Title: e-flux journal. Art Without Death: Conversations on Russian Cosmism
Publisher: Sternberg Press
Subject: Essays & Non-fiction, Theory & Philosophy

Contributions by Bart De Baere, Franco 'Bifo' Berardi, Boris Groys, Elena Shaposhnikova, Marina Simakova, Hito Steyerl, Anton Vidokle, Brian Kuan Wood, Arseny Zhilyaev, Esther Zonsheim 

According to the nineteenth-century teachings of Nikolai Fedorov—librarian, religious philosopher, and progenitor of Russian cosmism—our ethical obligation to use reason and knowledge to care for the sick extends to curing the dead of their terminal status. The dead must be brought back to life using means of advanced technology—resurrected not as souls in heaven, but in material form, in this world, with all their memories and knowledge. 

his book of interviews and conversations with today’s most compelling living and resurrected artists and thinkers seeks to address the relevance of Russian cosmism and biocosmism in light of its influence on the Russian artistic and political vanguard as well as on today’s art-historical apparatuses, weird materialisms, extinction narratives, and historical and temporal politics. This unprecedented collection of exchanges on cosmism asks how such an encompassing and imaginative, unapologetically humanist and anthropocentric strain of thinking could have been so historically and politically influential, especially when placed alongside the politically inconsequential—but in some sense equally encompassing—apocalypticism of contemporary realist imaginaries.

The Happy Hypocrite 8 - Fresh Hell

Author: Sophia Al-Maria (ed.)
Title: The Happy Hypocrite 8 - Fresh Hell
Publisher: Bookworks
Subject: Periodicals
Stock: 

‘What fresh hell is this? There’s an inferred question in the title of this issue. But it’s a rhetorical one. Because we know exactly what fresh hell this is. Fossil Fuel – that paralytic drug – has leeched into our collective bloodstream. It’s difficult to recognize the beasts that are eating us in this very moment.’ – Sophia Al-Maria, from the Editor’s note, The Happy Hypocrite 8

The Happy Hypocrite – Fresh Hell treats in different ways the subject of oil. Adopting an exploded methodology for intake, image and text contributions, this issue takes a hoarding, brutally accelerative approach and considers reading, too, as an unsustainable activity. Guest editor Sophia Al-Maria’s archive acts a sort of proto-Tumblr composed of school notebooks, war games and oil industry pamphlets scattered as a series of identifying clues. All windows are open, all browsers are burning: The Happy Hypocrite asks what happens when reblogged information is translated into paper-based print.

With contributions and new work by Abdullah Al-Mutairi, Monira Al Qadiri, Stephanie Bailey, Alex Borkowski, Judy Darragh, William Gibson, Navine G. Khan-Dossos, Malak Helmy, Raja’a Khalid, Omar Kholeif, McKenzie Wark, Simon Sellars, Francesco Pedraglio and Lena Tutanjian.

According to editor Will Holder, ‘Flurry’ came about after being asked to propose ten books for acquisition by the Gerrit Rietveld Academie library in Amsterdam. He gave a talk about that selection, for which he preferred reproducing original material over commentary, and wanted to allow others to speak. The outcome was a reading back and forth between the ten books. It soon became clear that this reading would readily lend itself to an issue of ‘F.R. David’. Associated material came up in the process of transcription.

Spike Art Quarterly #55 - Spring 2018

FASHION Brands such as Y/Project, Telfar and Vetements have found new ways to pick up where the designers of the 90s left off. Aided by strategies borrowed from art, they are transforming the fashion system from within and widening its boundaries beyond recognition. Fashion is succeeding precisely where art is not, wresting autonomy out of enormous political and social shifts. Is it now art’s turn to learn from fashion?

With Emily Segal and Alessandro Bava discussing art, fashion and the contemporary; Ella Plevin on Bernadette Corporation and Elsa Schiaparelli's "The Tears Dress"; Matthew Linde on the origins of the fashion show; Sylvie Fleyry in conversation with Dean Kissick; our Questions answered by Jack Self, Andra Dumitrascu and Youths In Balaclava; Natasha Stagg on Micro-Influencing; Dominikus Müller on painter Lukas Duwenhögger and Marina Fausr on the Margiela retrospective in Paris.

Devouring an artwork by Laure Prouvost is to swallow the seductive elements that fathom and stick the audience through lactation, smell, secretion, and corpulence; curator Natasha Hoare explores in what way Laure succumbs to a state of lush and allurement.


Daring a view of Aaron McElroy’s crude and delicate photographs, meanwhile sucking a toe, and pulling out the tang; artist Sarah Anne Johnson blows up sparkles of abstract paint on your bed, beyond the surrealist nudes; photographer Nikolay Bakharev brings a sweltering and delicate worlds of affection through his lens; artist Sam Samiee composes posters for your bedroom, sensibly depicting boys’ voluptuousness when asleep. Do you want to play with Extra Extra writer Fatos Ustek? Her Musings piece is a philosophical emulation about the sensuality of play, and what elapses an encounter.


Biting, chewing words, performer Michael Portnoy explores the unity between sex and language in diverse societies and intriguing rituals, and how the rhythm of thoughts unfolds through prose-poetic in our feature Some Thoughts On. Do you ever night walk?

Title: Volume #51 - Augmented Technology
Subject: Periodicals & Reprints, Architecture
Stock: 

As recent technological advancement became more and more pervasive and sophisticated, its consequences became more dramatically evident. In this context, design takes on a new relevance, in organizing and managing spaces, individuals, relations and ultimately societies. But if this is clear, several questions have to be answered: Who is driving it, who are the participants, who are sitting around the table? Does spatial design currently have a say in this, and if not, how can it participate and intervene?

Volume #51: Augmented Technology includes ‘Deconstruction’, a 32-page insert produced with the Jacob Bakema Study Centre and designed by Loraine Furter. It investigates the deconstruction and reuse of modernist building components as researched by Rotor.

It’s 2017. The millennium is in its teenage years—and it shows.

The world is acting out—making rash, impulsive decisions whose repercussions may be irreparable. The body politic is moody, volatile, and uncompromising. We were born into Y2K and 9/11; our youth is part of a string of crises and rapid evolutions. Can the physical landscape weather our collective turmoil? Adolescence may be 'just a phase,' but architecture, infrastructure, and policy are hard to undo.

What does it mean to be 17 in 2017? This issue of Harvard Design Magazine checks in with teens of all sorts—humans, buildings, objects, ideas—and their impact on the spatial imagination. Like a bildungsroman for the built environment, 'Seventeen' dives into the treacherous, exhilarating limbo of the teen years to understand and reclaim this global adolescence.

Terremoto 10 - FAYUQUERXS

Title: Terremoto 10 - FAYUQUERXS
Subject: Periodicals & Reprints
Stock: 

A fayuquero, in Mexican colloquial Spanish, is a person 'who is dedicated to selling the merchandise acquired through smuggling.' While the free market, with NAFTA-type or the Pacific Alliance regulations, recommends the effective and fluid circulation of objects and goods, its vision limited by capitalism, does not contemplate the plurality found in the diversity of human beings to also include marginalized bodies, identities and ideas. The real fayuca to be threaded to the mainstream in our time, beyond screens and microwaves, would not be the progressive ideals that have drowned in the slow shipwreck of the modern left? Or also, those initiatives that challenge the hegemonic order?


In this issue of Terremoto, we will talk about the ability of the art to move away from secrecy to openly criticize the reality, a dangerous right that has been conquered throughout history. We will recognize the ambiguity of the relationship we have with the systems of power that make us visible (at their convenience), that provide us with the resources to operate, or on the contrary, try to disappear us, both in relation to the institution and the market. We will honestly assess our aspirations of independence from the economic to the conceptual and ethical, considering dissent, disguise and trap as possible and perhaps still desirable resources.

Publisher: Uh Books, KW Institute for Contemporary Art
Subject: Periodicals & Reprints

Texts by Mason Leaver-Yap, Scott Rogers, Reza Negarestani, Ian White, Eileen Myles, Ayesha Siddiqi, Marcel Broodthaers, Donna Haraway and more !

'Recognition' is concerned with bodies, ecology, empathy, gazing at the world, and reading (environments) from non-anthropocentric POVs—nonetheless described and written by humans. Animals, birds, and trees feature heavily.

Copernicus told us that the earth was not the center. Darwin told us that man is not the center. If we listened to the anthropologists we might hear them telling us, with appropriate indirectness, that the White West is not the center. The center of the world is a bluff on the Klamath River, a rock in Mecca, a hole in the ground in Greece, nowhere, its circumference everywhere. Perhaps the utopist should heed this unsettling news at last. Perhaps the utopist would do well to lose the plan, throw away the map, get off the motorcycle, put on a very strange-looking hat, bark sharply three times, and trot off looking thin, yellow, and dingy across the desert and up into the digger pines.

THE REAL doesn’t exist in a vacuum but is shaped by desire and ideology, fiction and art. Its borders are indistinct, its appeal dubious, its essence elusive. Maybe we live in a simulation. When’s the last time you experienced a glitch? Sometimes another reality intrudes into the one we thought we knew and changes us forever. This issue of Spikelooks at the real as a fault-line of art and a utopian horizon of its agency. Welcome to the oasis of the real!

Modeled after the iconic French film journal Cahiers du cinema, The Exhibitionist has served a critical role in examining current curatorial practices by focusing specifically on the exhibition format as a site of experimentation and inquiry.

Title: Culinary Materialism
Publisher: Urbanomic
Subject: Theory & Philosophy, Periodicals & Reprints
Stock: 

Cookery has never been so high on the agenda of Western popular culture. And yet the endlessly-multiplying TV shows, the obsessive interest in the provenance of ingredients, and the celebration of ‘radical’ experiments in gastronomy, tell us little about the nature of the culinary. Is it possible to maintain that cookery has a philosophical pertinence without merely appending philosophy to our burgeoning gastroculture? 

Drawing on resources ranging from anthropology to chemistry, from hermetic alchemy to contemporary mathematics, Collapse VII: Culinary Materialism undertakes a trans-modal experiment in culinary thinking. A wide range of contributors including philosophers, chefs, artists, historians, and synaesthetes examine the cultural, industrial, physiological, alchemical and even cosmic dimensions of cookery, and propose new models of culinary thought for the future.

Collapse VI brings together philosophers, theorists, eco-critics, leading scientific experts in climate change, and artists whose work interrogates the link between philosophical thought, geography and cartography, in order to create a portrait of the present state of ‘planetary thought’.
