NICE #2
Text in English
€ 28,00

NICE Magazine turns the spotlight on areas of fashion which are not the most familiar to a European audience: stories about talents in contemporary urban Africa. Published by KLAYM which runs workshops across the African continent on photography, graphic and media design workshops, NICE is a rare title, that intends to support and introduce the rising generation of photographers, designers and writers. This issue is in French and English and it focuses on Abidjan, Ivory Coast. NICE also shows the eagerness of ordinary people in the Ivorian capital for selective wear, which is perhaps best captured in this quote “I am not much of a model, but I often pose for pictures just for the pleasure of it. I love jeans and sportswear. I really enjoyed this photoshoot.”

Entkunstung
- Felipe Duque & Maximilian Mauracher

Text in English
€ 28,00

Entkunstung is an independent journal with a bold reflective attitude on the contemporary art scene. It was launched online exactly one year ago, and since then four issues were published before being compiled into this book. With 34 contributions in English and German, it is more of an artists’ intellectual forum in the form of a yearbook. The first of the four issues puts “art” as a notion into perspective and brings up the non-self-evidentiality of the power of artworks. Art, cannot thrive in isolation from the work of the philosopher, the academic or the theoretician. The second issue ponders on the relevance of knowledge and intelligence to the aesthetics of an art creation. The third issue basically tries to figure the extent to which artists should stay engaged in political matters pertinent to human rights and climate change. Whereas the last issue digs even deeper and explores the different meanings of power through analysis of everyday “power-ful” moments.

F.R. David
- Flurry, Spring 2018

Text in English
€ 10,00

Edited by Will Holder, this Spring 2018 edition of the bookish journal F.R. David assembles an exquisite collection of ‘best-of’ texts extracted from original works of arts and literature. Published by uh books in collaboration with the KW Institute for contemporary Art, this edition is entitled ‘Flurry’, in reference to the little turbulent moments that sometimes surround the making of an artistic or curating performance. Holder explains that this issue came about after a request to propose ten books for acquisition by the Gerrit Rietveld Academy Library in Amsterdam. A back and forth reading led to the reproduction of the original material which was also kept in its typographical format.

The Future Starts Here
Text in English
€ 29,00 each

How would the future possibly look like? Especially in a world where things seem to be heading somewhere where design is playing a very important role in shaping such future! Touching upon issues like DNA analysis, artificial intelligence, synthetic biology and space exploration, The Future Starts Here explores cutting edge scientific research and innovative pursuits, taking them from the laboratories and the studios to the attention of the general public. This includes research which has an impact on the Self, the Public, the Planet and the Afterlife. In comparison to the first issue released by V&A (this book’s publisher) dating back to 1852 and which sought to make sense of the Industrial Revolution, the current issue presents technologies and products in order to make sense of the nascent digital revolution.

Texte zur Kunst
- Art without rules, #109

Text in English
€ 16,50

How does the arts look like under the influence of rules and how is it meant to look like when rules are broken? Especially these days when so much is done in the name of freedom of speech, but is judged as being abusive. And which breaking of rules do we exactly talk about when the traditional rule-driving hierarchies like class, gender, race and sexuality continue to be a major source of power production and therefore of art making? Texte zur Kunst, the left-leaning publication focusing on the aesthetics, arts and politics raises these questions in lengthy texts produced in English and German. This issue is based on the premise that art necessarily emanates from some transpassing of the rules, and from this premise goes on to inspect the actual rules, or regulations, or norms that arrange the art scene.

Venets.
- Welcome to the ideal

Text in English
€ 28,00

Released on the occasion of fifty years since the October Revolution of 1967, a year that also coincides with Vladimir Lenin’s centenary, Venets retraces fragments of soviet history in the premises of the Hotel Venets in Lenin’s hometown: Ulyanovsk. Kirill Gluschenko, author of the book, stayed in the hotel’s different rooms, from the cheapest -still Soviet decorated- to the most expensive with the outstanding view. This book delves into the archives of the 23-storey building, showing photographs, newspaper articles, administrative and secret police documents, in addition to a fictional story which is based on a found diary of a Moscow journalist.

Spike Art Quarterly
Spring 2018, #55

Text in English
€ 9,50

Spike Art Quarterly, issue 55 covers the latest work of avantgarde labels like Vetement, Y/Project and Telfar, which are currently looking at the nineties fashion trends, picking up some of the period’s idiosyncrasies. This is done by ways of borrowing techniques and strategies from the arts, with which they seem to be stretching the boundaries of fashion to new extremities, proving that fashion is succeeding where art has failed. Featuring a talk with Emily Segal and Alessandro Bava about how the contemporary is taking over the timeless in today’s art, an essay by Rob Horning on how fashion makes us accept a consensual reality without much reflection, even if that reality seems absurd, a portrait of the New York collective Bernadette Corporation, and a Q/A with Jack Self about why there’s no criticism in fashion.

Parallel Encyclopedia # 2
- Batia Suter

Text in English
€ 65,00

Artist Batia Suter puts together what seems like an infinite collection of photographs into one comprehensive Parallel Encyclopedia, #2. Taken out of their original context the photos function in thematic clusters with occasional break of the black and white pattern with coloured photos. People, nature, people in nature, microscopic organisms, sculptures and artifacts intercommunicate as their narrative unfolds from one page to the next. Sometimes there is a common logic underlying the image clusters, for instance when they are visibly about anatomical parts of the human body or about sculptures, but it isn’t that evident, since there’s always an image that is a bit of an outcast to the grouping. With some common traits, it looks like it can somehow belong to it, but there’s something about it that pleads for difference.
