Extra Extra 11

 

Turn your senses upside down. Extra Extra’s issue 11 transforms a tender gesture into a dance of stirring desire. Seeing bodies as monsters, Lucrecia Martel talks about unruly desires, suffering, and the geography of the body on the left bank of the Paraguay river in a candid talk with with Manuel Betancourt. The light of Tim Etchells’ neon signs flickers in Samuel Saelemakers’ head. Together they talk about the eroticism of semantic, phone sex, and ventriquolism. Anicka Yi’s conversation with Rosa de Graaf has a flavour that can spur longing, form sense memories, and reconfigure the sensuous politics of taste. QUINN LATIMER wonders how to live in another body by unmasking the erotic relationship between the performer and the audience. Out of sight, Fatos Ustek elaborates an exciting reading of Alain Badiou’s In Praise of Love in the essay titled Event Horizon. Cruising for discretion, Richard John Jones unravels the history of poppers, shares glimpses of Vito Acconci, amongst other provocative sparks. Nathalie Hartjes imagines the unnamed archetypal city inspired by the pathways and crevices of the Extra Extra archive. The sultry sound of the Paris suburbs by Tshegue uplifts our bodies beyond the fusion of vivid afros rhythm, garage rock, electro trance, and club-culture music. Through the eyes of ADOMAS NARKEVIČIUS ❤️, we witness the breakthrough of the hidden sensuality of VILNIUSand its liberation from the constraints of the past.

Subject: Periodicals and Reprints

The Blind Man and rongwrong were seminal New York Dada magazines edited and published by Marcel Duchamp, Henri-Pierre Roche, and Beatrice Wood in 1917. This facsimile edition, introduced by Sophie Seita, celebrates the 100th anniversary of their publication. The box set also includes a two-color offset reproduction of Beatrice Wood’s poster for The Blind Man’s Ball (1917) and a letterpress facsimile of Man Ray’s The Ridgefield Gazook (1915). Translations of the French texts by Elizabeth Zuba accompany the facsimile reprints. 

The Blind Man and rongwrong were part of a network of little magazines that introduced audiences to avant-garde movements in art and literature; they featured contributions of poetry, prose, and visual art by Mina Loy, Louise Norton, Robert Carlton Brown, Erik Satie, Walter Arensberg, Francis Picabia, Alfred Stieglitz, and others. The Blind Man was the first print publication to circulate an image of Duchamp’s (OR MOST PROBABLY NOT - SEE: Baroness Elsa von Freytag-Loringhoven) 'Fountain'  (photographed by Stieglitz) after its rejection from the first annual exhibition of the Society of Independent Artists, presenting a public challenge to the accepted definition of art during this time.

The PROVENCE REPORT AW 18/19 focal point is Art in the service of... We look at moments when artists use their practice and skills in the service of something or someone else. In the backdrop, we are confronted with an artistic field triggering 'descriptions' and suggestions like the Content Industrial Complex’s false sublation of art into life or—on the other end of the spectrum— the self-abolition of all art and art workers. While the former is some sort of Kulturindustrie takeover, the latter is drafted as a left political practice. Paradoxically, with both comes the end of the art world. In this highly volatile period of criticism, how might a re­newed interest in services comment on art’s relative autonomy? As thoughts without content are empty, primary research forms the basis for this issue of PROVENCE REPORT: where possible, we have elected for conversations held or reports written by practitioners in the field.

Spike Art Quarterly #57 - Autumn 2018

'THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS SOCIETY', Margaret Thatcher said in 1987. The dismantling of the welfare state, careerism, selfishness and lobby renovations. A rabid free-for-all for those with something; a big betrayal for those who would be left with nothing. It ushered in the political predicament we are still mired in today. But there was also a growing sense of community. In England workers took to the streets, in New York there were protests against the cynicism of the government’s response to the AIDS crisis. And for part of the art world, political collective engagement was more important than the market. This issue is about the 80s.

Title: The Legend of Barbara Rubin: Film Culture 60
Publisher: Spector Books
Subject: Essays & Non-fiction, Artists' Writings, Periodicals & Reprints

Having entered the New York underground in the 1960s while still a teenager, filmmaker Barbara Rubin quickly became one of its key figures. Her pioneering 1963 double-projection film Christmas on  Earth was both sexually provocative and aesthetically innovative. She worked regularly with Jonas Mekas and Andy Warhol, introduced Bob Dylan to Allen Ginsberg, and connected Warhol with The Velvet Underground. During an intense period of activity and travel, Rubin wrote passionate letters about film and the underground to Mekas. This special eightieth issue of the magazine Film Culture features her previously unpublished letters to Mekas. It also includes interviews and Rubin’s script, Christmas on Earth Continued, a planned sequel to her notorious film.

The Happy Hypocrite 10 - Tolstoyevsky

Title: 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.

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.

Publisher: Bookworks
Subject: Periodicals

‘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.

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?

'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.

This special volume of Speculations explores the ramifications of what could be termed the new speculative aesthetics.

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 Volume VI

Author: Robin Mackay (ed.)
Title: Geo/Philosophy
Publisher: Urbanomic
Subject: Theory & Philosophy, Periodicals & Reprints
Stock: 

Real and imaginary geographies and cartographies have played a dual role in philosophy, serving both as governing metaphor and as ultimate grounding for philosophical thought; but urgent contemporary concerns introduce new problems for geophilosophy: planetary political, technological, military, and financial mutations have scrambled territorial formations, and scientific predictions now present us with the apocalyptic scenario of a planet without human thought.

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’.

Contributions by Charles Avery, Angela Detanico, Rafael Lain, Stephen Emmott, Renee Green, Gilles Grelet, Manabrata Guha, Owen Hatherley, Nicola Masciandaro, Timothy Morton, Greg Mclnerny, Reza Nagerastani, Drew Purves, F.W.J. Schelling, Eyal Weizman, Rich WIlliams.
