MZIN NEWS: BLOCK MAGAZIN #3 (D) —

BLOCK ist ein Magazin, das sich dem Relevanzgehechel, das in der Medienlandschaft vorherrscht, entzieht. Beiträge werden nicht aufgrund ihrer Aktualität, sondern aufgrund ihrer Qualität ausgesucht. Autoren, Künstler und Journalisten können über das Thema, die Länge und die Form ihres Beitrags selbst entscheiden. Dadurch ergibt sich eine wilde Mischung aus Essays, Reportagen, Gedichten, Fotografien und Kunst. Rezensionen, die hauptsächlich zur Positionierung des Magazins dienen, und katalogähnliche „Lifestyle“- Seiten überlassen wir getrost anderen Blättern.

Wir sind der Meinung, unserer Leserschaft diesen fröhlichen Eklektizismus durchaus zumuten zu können– die mediale Überforderung durch fehlende Strukturen wie Sparten oder Kolumnen ist im Internetzeitalter nur mehr eine schwache Erinnerung. Wir glauben nicht an den Grabenkampf zwischen gedruckten und digitalen Publikationen. BLOCK ist in allererster Linie ein Printprodukt, weil sich das Medium für unsere Zwecke besser eignet, und nicht etwa aus ideologischen Gründen.

BLOCK ist ein junges und unabhängiges Magazin und soll aus einer Mischung von Vorbestellungen und Anzeigenverkauf finanziert werden. Anzeigenpreis und Auflage sind gekoppelt, wie in der Branche üblich – jedoch mit dem Unterschied, dass wir den Prozess für unsere Leser nachvollziehbar gestalten. Insgesamt stehen sechs volle Seiten im Heft für Werbekunden zum Verkauf.

MZIN NEWS: KAARI UPSON — MY MOTHER DRINKS PEPSI (KOENIG BOOKS)



Kaari Upson beschäftigt sich in ihrer Praxis mit Fragen der Kontaminierung; sie richtet ihr Augenmerk auf den Raum zwischen dem eigenen Selbst und dem Anderen: die unbestimmte Zone, die "uns beide" einbezieht. Sie konzentriert sich auf das häusliche Umfeld und präsentiert uns mit einer Fülle emotionaler Materie, wie sie ein vertrautes Objekt oder familiäre Milieus enthalten können; wir verbreiten uns ständig über all das, was zu uns gehört. Im Gegenzug verströmen unsere Dinge ihre Dinghaftigkeit über uns. Die alltäglichen Objekte, wie sie uns aus einem typischen amerikanischen Haushalt bekannt sind, treten vervielfältigt auf und erlangen eine körperliche, beklemmende Qualität. In der Publikation präsentiert Upson ein Protokoll, in dem der Produktionsprozeß ihrer Skulpturen, der Pepsidosen und weitere Details festgehalten sind. Dem ist das Manuskript der Autobiografie ihrer Mutter gegenübergestellt, worin diese ihr Leben in Ostdeutschland und ihre Reise in die Vereinigten Staaten schildert. ***** Upson's practice is rooted in the question of contamination, unearthing the space between the self and the other, the indeterminable zone of "both." By investigating the domestic environment, Upson presents the wealth of emotional material that a familiar object or space can contain; we leak all over our things, and they, in turn, leak their thingness back onto us. The intimate and mundane objects of the American household become bodily, uncanny, and multiple. In the publication Upson presents a log-book that follows the process and ephemera of the Pepsi can's production, layered and juxtaposed with the manuscript of Upson's mother's autobiography, which describes her life in East Germany and her journey to the United States.

MZIN NEWS: WORKSHOP OF THE FILM FORM (STERNBERG PRESS)

Workshop of the Film Form provides an in-depth overview of the achievements of Warsztat Formy Filmowej (WWF; Workshop of the Film Form), a group of avant-garde artists who were working at the Leon Schiller National Higher School of Film, Television and Theatre in Lodz, Poland, between 1970 and 1977. WWF was founded by the students and graduates of the school, now known as the National Film School, and included: Wojciech Bruszewski, Paweł Kwiek, Andrzej Różycki, Józef Robakowski, Zbigniew Rybczyński, Kazimierz Bendkowski, Antoni Mikołajczyk, Janusz Połom, and Ryszard Waśko. As pioneers of video art in Poland and structural cinema in Central and Eastern Europe, the artists refused classical narrative and traditional film media, working instead somewhere between cinematography and contemporary art.

This publication examines all aspects of WFF’s activity, from their films, photographic experiments, video art, and performative actions to their teaching work, which includes previously unexplored pedagogical contributions to the National Film School. Drawing on the private archives and oral testimonies of the WWF, Workshop of the Film Form attempts to provide a full account of the group’s history as well as a comprehensive survey of each member’s practice. The writers who were invited to respond to the WWF for this book provide insightful new readings of the group’s output and activities, contextualizing their work in the history of the prewar Polish avant-garde and the politics of experimental filmmaking in Poland under the rule of the Polish United Workers’ Party (PZPR).

MZIN NEWS: JASPER MORRISON — A BOOK OF THINGS (LARS MÜLLER)

Jasper Morrison has the ability to bestow things with a distinctive style. His signature style is evident in many of the everyday objects that surround us.

Morrison works on a global scale and is one of the most influential product designers in the world today. A Book of Things is a collection of products and projects across the broad spectrum of his activities and demonstrates the continuity of his interests and methods, which he describes in succinct texts.

MZIN NEWS: THE EGYPTIAN POSTURES (THE EVERYDAY PRESS)

The Egyptian Postures
Dr. Otoman Zar-Adusht Ha’nish
The Egyptian Postures is a guide to the most advanced Mazdaznan exercises that Johannes Itten taught his students at the Bauhaus. Often performed while singing or humming the postures were intended to activate glands and re-channel internal energies, stirring the blood in ways that contributed to the perpetual evolution of humanity. They were also said to induce auto-illumination, the participant’s body generating an intense light from within.
This edition of Dr. Otoman Zar-Adusht Ha’nish’s original instructions has been newly edited and illustrated by Ian Whittlesea with images of actor Ery Nzaramba demonstrating the postures and an in-depth essay by Pádraic E. Moore that explores the relationships between esoteric movements, their racial theories and early modernism's embrace and eventual dismissal of the occult, Mazdaznan and Itten.

MZIN NEWS: DRESSED IN BLACK — SPECTRUM AND LOTHAR REHER (PRECINCT)

Dressed in Black extends out of the exhibition A Shelf for Lothar, staged in 2016 at the 27th Brno Biennial of Graphic Design. The book reproduces 115 jackets from the Spektrum series, the work of German designer and artist Lothar Reher. 

Spektrum, published in East Berlin by Volk und Welt from 1968 to 1993, embodied the ideals of accessibility and inclusiveness epitomised by the wave of mid-twentieth century paperbacks, in their inherent simplicity and usability. And yet, despite its mass readership, the series’ dense monochrome imagery has an uneasy air of mystery, with often oblique relationship to the books’ contents.

Reher designed all but one of the series’ 279 titles, producing the photographic montages more or less single handedly. Recurring motifs such as skulls, faces, museological artefacts and spherical objects reveal a long-term visual grammar, with later books in the series often echoing back to earlier designs. These taxonomies formed the basis of the shelf display in Brno, and aim to gain insight into Reher’s distinctive interpretation of this considerable body of literature. 

Alongside actual size reproductions of the jackets, Dressed in Black features essays by Regine Ehleiter and Roland Früh which further elaborate on the transactions between book and exhibition formats.

MZIN RESTOCK: TIM BARBER — HIGHSCHOOL (NIEVES)



Tim Barber (Vancouver, 1979), a New York based photographer and curator, started the tinyvices.com site more than a year and a half ago as an accessible showcase for his own and other photographers' work. Recently the project has evolved into a globe-travelling exhibition of more than 60 artists, which works Barber has first showcased on his website that is now functioning as a community publication, an editorial project, an art gallery and archive.

Highschool is the first Nieves publication of Barber’s own photographs from his last few years at high-school in Amherst, Massachusetts, released in conjunction with the tinyvices.com show at colette. Tim Barber's photographs are simply straightforward, and naturally attract the eye of the viewer for their raw and detailed vision.

Over the last few years, Barber has collaborated with many illustrious magazines worldwide and he has also worked as Photo Editor for Vice Magazine from 2003 to 2005. Amongst his previous publications is the acclaimed A Pile of Shit Has a Thousand Eyes, which was released for his solo show at the journal gallery (New York) last year.

MZIN NEWS: NEUBAU — FORST CATALOGUE (LARS MÜLLER)

Neubau Forst Catalogue is the 432-page print catalogue of a digital collection of tree silhouettes and sculptures seen at different seasons. Working by hand, the Neubau designers digitally removed the trees from their original Berlin surroundings and thereby crafted a body of visual material whose scope, outstanding quality of detail and excellent image resolution sets it clearly apart from conventional tree libraries compiled with autotracing tools. The trees, which were systematically photographed in summer and winter over several years, assume a timeless validity through Neubau’s process of selection and are thus universally applicable for future visualizations.


From the existing stand-alone tree objects, which can be placed against both dark and light backgrounds of all kinds, Neubau has furthermore derived individual “tree modules”. These modules can be combined with the ready-to-use trees in an endless number of ways. Alongside detailed information about tree species, size, location, year of planting and file format, the catalogue contains also numerous

MZIN NEWS: TARYN SIMON — PAPERWORK AND THE WILL OF CAPITEL (HATJE CANTZ)

Paperwork and the Will of Capital vereint Taryn Simon (*1975) – eine der originellsten und anspruchsvollsten Konzeptkünstlerinnen unserer Zeit – Geopolitik, Gartenbauwissenschaft und die Kunst des Stilllebens, um zu untersuchen, wie die Inszenierung von Macht erschaffen, ausgeführt, vermarktet und erhalten wird. Bei der Unterzeichnung politischer Abkommen, Verträge, Vereinbarungen und Dekrete, die einige der wichtigsten Belange unserer Zeit festlegen, werden mächtige Männer von Blumenarrangements flankiert, die dazu angetan sind, die Bedeutung der Unterzeichnenden und der von ihnen vertretenen Institutionen zu vermitteln. Simon stellte die Arrangements anhand von Archivaufnahmen bedeutender Ereignisse nach und fotografierte sie; dann trocknete und presste sie die Blumen für ein Herbarium. Dieses prächtige Buch, teils Naturstudie, teils Metapher, zeugt von einem kunstvollen und faszinierenden Prozess künstlerischer De- und Rekonstruktion.

MZIN NEWS: ERWIN WURM — ONE MINUTE SCULPTURES 1997-2017 (HATJE CANTZ)

Die ikonischen One Minute Sculptures von Erwin Wurm (*1954 in Bruck an der Mur) laden Ausstellungsbesucher ein, mit vorhandenen Objekten, den Anweisungen des Künstlers folgend, kurzlebige Skulpturen zu realisieren. Levitieren, Luft anhalten und an Spinoza denken, sich wegwerfen oder ein Terrorist sein ... für eine Minute. Kurz, aber doch lange genug, um die Banalität, die Lächerlichkeit und die Austauschbarkeit dieses Zusammentreffens von Individuen und Objekten auf eine philosophische Ebene zu heben und etwa Fragen über die Divergenz unserer Realitäten zu stellen. Diese Konstellationen sind soziale Plastiken, die durch verblüffende Einfachheit und Stringenz gleichzeitig verunsichern und verführen. Diese Publikation listet zum ersten Mal alle One Minute Sculptures auf, die Erwin Wurm in mehr als 20 Jahren international realisiert hat, und zeigt exklusiv die weiter-geführte Arbeit für den Österreichischen Pavillon auf der Biennale von Venedig 2017.

MZIN NEWS: JASMIJN FISSER — CONFLICT ATLAS (ARCHIVE BOOKS)



conflict atlas looks at history through the perspective of the falklands islands/islas malvinas. global events are mirrored to local proceedings on the archipelago. through this method it explores trade routes, colonial enterprises, patterns of migration, questions of identity, strategies in warfare and the role of the climate in social issues. conflict atlas comprises texts, maps and archival materials. starting from the case of the falklands/malvinas it aims to create a field of tensions by the multiplication and stratification of geographical sites, historical times and subjective views. within the tension field the atlas detects movements and events that are contingent in character and can reflect on human behaviour within conflicts.

jasmijn visser is a dutch artist who lives in berlin and utrecht. she works on the intersection of drawing, writing, research and design. a large part of visser’s practice is interdisciplinary collaboration and long-term on-site research: e.g. she undertook expeditions researching an open coal mine in siberia for the krasnoyarsk biennial, and spent four months studying the atlas van loon and related atlases in museum van loon for her solo exhibition bachelor’s delight, and went on a three-month expedition to the malvinas/falkland islands as the start of the falklands project.

THE WHITE REVIEW NO. 20 features interviews with the Canadian poet, artist and bookmaker Anne Carson, the French philosopher Jean-Luc Nancy, and Lebanese artist Mounira Al Sohl. Through the testimony of an ex-inmate, Felix Bazalgette considers state systems of control, dehumanisation, and imprisonment without trial, while J. S. Tennant describes life in Havana as Cuba adjusts to the normalisation of relations with the United States, the death of Fidel Castro and the influx of foreign investment. Tom McCarthy’s essay ‘The Wandering Bourgeois’ drifts through the history of twentieth-century art to consider how vanguard strategies of recording, mapping and marking are now embedded in digital culture. Alongside these essays, we are pleased to present poems by Nisha Ramayya and Heather Phillipson, who also contributes an exclusive new limited edition artwork. We also feature series of artworks by Nicholas Party and John Divola.

MZIN NEWS: A FIELD GUIDE TO THE SNOWDEN FILES — ARTS, MEDIA, ARCHIVES (DIAMOND PAPER)



a field guide to the snowden files is the first book to critically engage with artists responding to the nsa-files leaked by whistleblower edward snowden. considering the most relevant contexts in which the files have 'surfaced' (including media and archives), it reflects on how artists are deploying the files as raw material.
the book looks at the various civil society actors who have been appropriating the historic leak and orders their responses according to contexts in which the snowden documents have been published: media, art and archives. the different approaches share the common goal of rendering the documents accessible – to both present and future audiences. reaching out to the general public, they have also tasked themselves with reflecting on the complex political, social and technological realities that the snowden documents have helped to uncover.

Als solches ist das Magazin eine Manifestation der documenta, anstatt ein diskursiver Apparat zu sein, mittels dessen lediglich die in der Ausstellung behandelten Themen angekündigt würden. Das Schreiben und Publizieren, in all seinen Formen, wird ein integraler Bestandteil der documenta 14 sein, und dieses Magazin ein Vorbote dieses Prozesses. Die Online-Ausgabe von South As a State of Mind präsentiert neben einer Auswahl aus dem Printmagazin gelegentlich neue Beiträge, die eigens für die digitale Plattform konzipiert sind.

Birgit ist eine langjährige Verwaltungsangestellte, die ihre Arbeit und die Abläufe im Büro genau kennt. An diesem Morgen stellt sich ihre neue Vorgesetzte vor und verteilt Aufgaben. Birgit weiß, dass sie ihrer neuen Vorgesetzten überlegen ist und deren Aufträge mit links erledigen könnte. Doch stattdessen sitzt sie untätig vor dem Bildschirmschoner und wartet ab. Irgendwann packt Birgit einen Karton mit ihren Habseligkeiten und verlässt das Büro.

“Birgit” ist die grafische Momentaufnahme einer Figur, die unvermittelt, dabei aber behutsam aus ihrem bisherigen Alltag aussteigt. Wie in seinem Vorgängercomic “Röhner” (Rotopolpress) beweist Max Baitinger einen äußerst humorvollen Umgang mit überraschenden zeichnerischen Mitteln.

Liebevoll nimmt Anna Haifisch sich der Zumutungen, Peinlichkeiten und Ängste der Künstlerexistenz an – und macht Comics daraus, über die man lachen kann, die einen aber auch anrühren. Mit sparsamer, dabei äußerst präziser Linienführung verleiht Anna Haifisch ihren sprechenden Tierfiguren Eleganz und Zartheit.

MZIN NEWS: SLEEK #54 — ART AND CULTURE MAGAZINE (D)



This summer, SLEEK celebrates Comme des Garcons and Rei Kawakubo’s extraordinary solo exhibition at the Met Costume Institute with a special 30-page dossier dedicated to the brand. In order to fully understand Kawakubo’s enduring influence on fashion and art, we’ve spoken to members of the Comme family, including president Adrian Joffe, protégé Gosha Rubchinskiy and more. Our cover story continues this tribute to CDG with “This is Not a Retrospective”, a fashion editorial featuring archival and current season pieces photographed by Till Janz and styled by Toby Grimditch and Kamilla Richter. Elsewhere in the issue, the worlds of fashion and art collide once more with a behind the scenes photo diary of Anne Imhof’s Golden Lion winning performance of “Faust” at the 2017 Venice Biennale.

MZIN NEWS: RYAN MCGINLEY — THE KIDS WERE ALRIGHT (RIZZOLI)

he first book to examine Ryan McGinley's early photographs and Polaroids--raw, visceral portraits of his coterie of friends and artists
in downtown New York City.
Published to accompany an exhibition at Museum of Contemporary Art Denver, Ryan McGinley: The Kids Were Alright focuses on the photographer's early work from 1998 to 2003, the year of his solo exhibition at the Whitney Museum of American Art.
These early photographs and Polaroids--many of which have never been exhibited or published-- document his friends and collaborators in downtown New York City. In the process, McGinley created a powerful portrait of his generation and their often debauched lifestyle: gritty, daring, and focused on moments of both pleasure and tedium. McGinley's singular ability to capture the mood and emotional depth of a moment is evident even from the earliest years of his career.
Curator Nora Burnett Abrams offers the most comprehensive consideration to date of this important work in her essay, and other contributions-- including an interview with McGinley and artist Dan Colen and several short reminiscences from many of his subjects and social circle at the time-- will provide context and commentary on the more than 100 works in the volume.--- EURO 35.00
