MZIN RESTOCK: THE SPIRITED ART OF SISTER CORITA (FOUR CORNERS BOOKS)

Admired by Charles and Ray Eames, Buckminster Fuller and Saul Bass, Sister Corita Kent was one of the most innovative and unusual pop artists of the 1960s, battling the political and religious establishments, revolutionizing graphic design and encouraging the creativity of thousands of people – all while living and practicing as a catholic nun in California. This lavishly illustrated book is the first to examine her life and career and contains more than 90 illustrations, some never before published.

MZIN NEWS: NOMAD #2 — MAGAZINE FOR NEW DESIGN CULTURE (D)

nomad ist ein Design- und Gesellschaftsmagazin. Es interpretiert Design als Zukunfts­gestaltung und somit als Katalysator für gesellschaftliche Entwicklungen und individuellen Lifestyle.
In nomad wandelt sich die Sichtweise auf Design vom Status des Besonderen hin zum Alltäglichen und erfährt genau dadurch eine selbstverständliche Wertschätzung. Über die Perspektive auf das gestaltete Ergebnis und seinen Designer kommen Aspekte hinzu, die unter einem erweiterten Design­verständnis die Wirkung und die Zukunftspotenziale einer neuen Designkultur für den Einzelnen und für die Gesellschaft untersuchen.
nomad vermittelt so in der Suche nach neuen Positionen. Das Magazin bietet Ansichten auf unterschiedliche Standpunkte, auf persönliche wie auch auf wirtschaftliche, kulturelle oder globale Aspekte und spannt damit einen Bogen über ein weites Feld, auf dem sich Themen zu Design, Gesellschaft und Lifestyle sowie Fragen zur Zukunftsgestaltung inspirierend gegenüberstehen.

MZIN NEWS: ERIK VAN LIESHOUT — THE SHOW MUST EGO ON (WIELS / KOENIG BOOKS)

Structured like a cine-novel, this book uses numerous stills from Die Insel as a visual backbone, into which are inserted three newly commissioned texts:
Dangerous as hell, having that camera on: A conversation about changing the world and saving a cockroach
 – Fucking Good Art
(Nienke Terpsma & Rob Hamelijnck)
Drawing upon their own collaborative and conversation-driven practice, they discuss with Van Lieshout the way that he works together with his partner, with his editor and with the protagonists of his films, to make artworks that are simultaneously generous and egocentric.
I am a genius
(Adrian Searle)
Locating Van Lieshout’s practice at the intersection between art and life, The Guardian’s art critic Adrian Searle contemplates the artist’s ambition and its (at times catastrophic) collision with reality.
In Praise of Folly, or the Possibility of an Island
(Zoë Gray)
Examining his apparently contradictory desire to be politically engaged and to withdraw from society into the pure autonomy of art, Gray’s essay considers Van Lieshout as a satirist, unpacking his humorous exploration of weighty, often controversial topics.

On 5 March 2014, Juergen Teller photographed the eagerly anticipated first collection by Nicolas Ghesquière as the new artistic director of Louis Vuitton. In his inimitable style, Teller visualizes the designer’s ambitious manifesto for the luxury house: “Louis Vuitton is a land of contrasts. A time-honored and noble legacy is kept alive by a yearning for discovery and exploration. Coursing boldly and imaginatively through the decades, Louis Vuitton refreshes the world of fashion with an untiring ebb and flow of retrospective and fresh perspective …

MZIN NEWS: PALAIS #24 (FR) — THE MAGAZINE OF THE PALAIS DE TOKYO

Around the Lasco Project, the Palais de Tokyo’s programme dedicated to urban art, PALAIS magazine is devoting its latest issue to artists whose work has been developed in the street.

The Lasco Project was initiated in 2012, and stands as one of the most astonishing successions of urban art in a cultural site, reaching into the slightest nook and darkest cranny of the Palais de Tokyo. For it, almost sixty international artists have produced interventions, some of them monumental, others secret, which confront the Palais de Tokyo’s plain architecture, and infiltrate into its interstices.

Interviews, encounters with artists, special contributions, theoretical essays and original texts

MZIN RESTOCK: PUBLISHING AS ARTISTIC PRACTICE — ED. ANETTE GILBERT (STERNBERG PRESS)

What does it mean to publish today? In the face of a changing media landscape, institutional upheavals, and discursive shifts in the legal, artistic, and political fields, concepts of ownership, authorship, work, accessibility, and publicity are being renegotiated. How the traditional publishing framework has been cast adrift, and which opportunities are surfacing in its stead, is discussed here by artists, publishers, and scholars through the examination of recent publishing concepts emerging from the experimental literature and art scene, where publishing is often part of an encompassing artistic practice.

MZIN NEWS: MONOKULTUR #41 (D) — SOPHIE CALLE

If anything, the work of Sophie Calle might be best described as elusive. Whether it marks a moment of distant intrusion (following strangers on the street, working as a chambermaid examining the traces and left-overs in anonymous hotel rooms), of controlled self-exhibition (giving a break-up letter to 107 specialists for analysis, displaying unopened birthday presents) or of sheer curiosity (asking the blind to define beauty, inviting strangers to spend time in her bed), it describes in meticulous detail instants of intimacy and vulnerability, of possibility and loss. Treading the edge between private and public, between structure and chance, Sophie Calle builds her ‘performances’ around rigorous rules and rituals that allow for moments of the unexpected, for questions to remain unanswered, for quiet wonder within the mundane.

Sophie Calle has exhibited her work at the Centre Pompidou in Paris, the Whitechapel Gallery in London and the Venice Biennial, among countless others. She lives and works in Paris.

In a casually and enigmatically meandering conversation with mono.kultur, Sophie Calle talked about starting her career by being lost in Paris, the pleasure in abandoning control and buying her own grave in California.

Visually, the issue borrows from Sophie Calle’s penchant for structure, dividing the issue between the public in a highly aesthetic display of selected works, and the personal with a very frank conversation in a different shade of grey.

MZIN NEWS: DROP OUT #POSTPOLITICS BY LODOWN MAGAZINE (D)

And here’s a little sneak peek on what’s happening in our DROPOUT issue… 

- ASH THAYER... the celebrated photographer/filmmaker/activist might be located in Los Angeles these days, but she spent her formative years in the squatting scene in New York’s Lower East Side - a place that basically felt like a different planet in the 90s compared to the frozen yoghurt fantasies it fulfills these days.

- JAY ADAMS... passed away in 2014, and the (skateboarding) world lost one of its true pioneers. Not only was he one of the originators of what eventually became the most powerful youth culture movement in human history- he was also the tragic figure, the badboy, the dropout of an art form he cofounded.

- ADAM FREELAND... the acclaimed DJ/producer and one third of The Acid has been a lil’ bit off the radar lately - because he’s put into action what others will fantasize about their whole life: exchanging the safe side of what you know in favor of embracing the unknowns: living off-grid in the Californian desert.

 - JUNCTION 48... the movie already won major awards at festivals like Tribeca and the Berlinale, as it took critics and audiences by storm via a story that isn’t too interested at all about notions of the good and the bad - instead it tells a multi-layered underdog tale with a pumping hip-hop score set within the heavily complex cultural system of modern Israel.

 - more eloquent statements and visual awesomeness about “DROPOUT“ from the likes of: JASON LEE, DARIA WERBOWY, BRUCE STEWART, MULTI KULTI, CHAD MUSKA, JAY NELSON, BONOBO, JOE HOLBROOK and many others.

MZIN NEWS: THE HAPPY READER #8 (UK) — BOOKISH QUARTERLY

Exciting news. A new issue of THE HAPPY READER is ready to meet the world.
We are thrilled to welcome actress KRISTIN SCOTT THOMAS as our cover star for autumn. Scott Thomas has pulled off the rare trick of gaining national treasure status in not one but two countries, having reached the top of her profession in both Britain, her nation of birth, and France, the country she now calls home. She is also a voracious reader, et voila — the perfect impetus for two wide-ranging Happy Reader interviews in London and Paris.
Then, after our new best friend provides us with a list of recommended reads, the issue travels west and then west some more, with Willa Cather’s O PIONEERS!, a bittersweet novel that evokes the fearful glory of the American frontier. Horseback preachers, prairie chickens, and pickled gherkins all make appearances in our special Nebraska-tinged section, with contributions from notable Great Plains-based writers Amanda Fortini and Clancy Martin, comic book artist Dash Shaw, and many others besides.

MZIN NEWS: ACTION TIME VISION (UNIT EDITIONS)

Few of the sleeves showcased here are beautiful in the normal sense of the word. But they all have an urgency and an exhilarating disregard for design conventions that makes them exceptional. They are all clarion calls for independence and freedom from pop industry norms.

The work in this book is culled from the record collections of designer (and Unit Editions co-founder) Tony Brook, and leading punk scholar Russ Bestley. As one of the world’s leading authorities on punk and post-punk music, Russ has contributed an insightful essay to the book.

The book also features interviews with designer Malcolm Garrett, Mute founder Daniel Miller and Sniffin’ Glue editor and musician Mark Perry.

MZIN NEWS: EP #2 — DESIGN FICTION (STERNBERG PRESS)

Contributions by Paola Antonelli, The Atlas Group  (1989–2004), Alex Coles, Anthony Dunne, James Dyer, Umberto Eco, Experimental Jetset, Vilém Flusser, Verina Gfader, Huib Haye van der Werf, Will Holder, Sophie Krier, Carrie Lambert-Beatty, Lucas Maassen, Valle Medina, Philippe Morel, Rick Poynor, Fiona Raby, Benjamin Reynolds, Hiroko Shiratori, Bruce Sterling

After the first EP volume on the activities of the early Italian avant-garde, the second volume in the series identifies the current fascination with fiction across art, design, and architecture. Practitioners and theorists explore this strategy by pushing the debate into both speculative and real-fictitious terrains. Newly commissioned interviews, artist projects, and essays shed light on topics such as parafiction and algorithmic ambiguity. Included in the volume is one of the final interviews to be published with novelist and semiotician Umberto Eco; a conversation with Bruce Sterling, in which the science-fiction author responds to designers who reference his writings; and design theorist Vilém Flusser’s 1966 essay “On Fiction,” in its first English translation.

The EP series fluidly moves between art, design, and architecture, and introduces the notion of the “extended play” into publishing, with thematically edited pocket books as median between popular magazines (“single play”) and academic journals (“long play”).

MZIN NEWS: THE TRAVEL ALMANACH #11 (D/US)

Dear Fellow Travelers,

we would like to thank you for your kind feedback on our anniversary Issue 10 earlier this Summer, and we were humbled that the issue was selected as the winner of the prestigious German Design Award 2017. So finally, to conclude our 5th anniversary celebrations this year, we’re excited to share with you this very special new release.

For the first time ever we feature an all female cast of outstanding representors of various cultural fields. We follow the exceptionally imaginative fashion designer Simone Rocha on a road trip to Ireland; we meet the legendary French architect Odile Decq for a studio visit, where she discusses the cultural differences in approaching building projects in varying countries; we speak with this year’s Turner Prize nominated artist Helen Marten, about how a childhood passion for collecting souvenirs might have an influence on her work; and we discuss the upsides and downsides of style appropriation with the intrepid promoter, boutique owner and famed dj Venus X. Our two covers this time around are graced by the celebrated model and songwriter Kacy Hill, who stars in a vibrant fashion editorial shot by Jenny Hueston in LA; and lastly by the queen of Cannes herself, the actrice extraordinaire Isabelle Huppert, who allows us a glimpse into her unique and relentless work process and explains some cultural differences in French and American film direction.

More then ever, we are determined to push our cultural exploration through the means of physical travel and metaphysical expeditions even further. 2017 will mark a next step on our journey with TTA, and we can’t wait to share it with you.

MZIN NEWS: NATHALIE DU PASQUIER — BIG OBJECTS NOT ALWAYS SILENT (STERNBERG PRESS)

Nathalie Du Pasquier was one of the founding members of Memphis, the groundbreaking Milanese design and architecture collective. During her time with the group she designed patterns for textiles and carpets as well as objects and furniture. Since 1987, however, her main focus and passion has been painting. The title of this publication describes the main focus of her work: the still life. Her distinct influences are visible here: travels to Africa, the ornamentation of the Wiener Werkstätte, the art of Le Corbusier and Amédée Ozenfant, and Novecento painting by Giorgio de Chirico and Giorgio Morandi.

This publication consists of an artist’s book by Du Pasquier with drawings, photographs, and reproductions of her paintings, and a book with photographs by Delfino Sisto Legnani of works from the past decades. Texts by writers and artists and an interview with Du Pasquier provide an informative and subjective view of her artistic practice.

Wie unser Cover nahelegt, ist diese Figur inhärent tragisch, muss sie doch, um autonome Einzelperson zu sein, immer auch ein Programm verkörpern und verinnerlichen, unter dem sie leidet. In unserer Ausgabe geht es darum, zu fragen, wie es dem Individuum, als durch die Form seines Regiertwerdens bestimmten Modus des Selbst, nach 15 Jahren „neuem Geist des Kapitalismus“ geht, die es als Künstler/in, Unternehmer/in und als „produktives“ zeitgenössisches Selbst geformt haben.

(Deutsche Ausgabe). Göttingen 2011. 26 x 31,5 cm. mit zahlr. Abb. Broschur. Text in deutscher Sprache. Steidl, [art-12813] ISBN 9783869304106

Über ein Jahr lang hat Juergen Teller für das ZEITmagazin eine Kolumne verfasst. Jede Woche hat er eines seiner Fotos ausgesucht und einen Text dazu geschrieben. Die Redaktion hat ihm dabei völlig freie Hand gelassen. Bild und Text zu kombinieren, war für Juergen Teller eine ganz neue Erfahrung: 

„Das ZEITmagazin brachte mich dazu, mich Woche für Woche wieder mit meiner Arbeit zu beschäftigen und auf Deutsch zu schreiben, was ich seit der Schule nicht mehr gemacht hatte.“ 

Die so entstanden Texte sind wie seine Bilder: unverblümt, oft kontrovers und typisch Teller. Von Beginn an stieß die Kolumne auf begeisterte Zustimmung, aber auch auf heftige Kritik. Hunderte von Briefen trafen in der Redaktion ein. Verstörte Leser wollten wissen, was solche Bilder und solche Texte in ihrer Zeitung verloren hatten. Literatur, das zweite Buch dieser Ausgabe, enthält die besten dieser Leserbriefe.

Dieses Künstlerbuch wurde von der Herausgeberin Vera Ida Müller, in enger Zusammenarbeit mit dem in Berlin lebenden Fotografen Wolfram Hahn und der Gestalterin Krispin Heé konzipiert. Hahn fotografiert seit Jahren weggeworfene Plastiktüten, die sich durch die Zeit nach ihrem Gebrauch zu einzigartigen Objekten entwickeln. Die Farbe, die Form und das Volumen verändern sich durch Schmutz, Witterungseinflüsse, Abnützung und durch die Bewegung im öffentlichen Raum. Die Tüten entwickeln sich durch ihr Ausgesetztsein zu lebendigen, skulpturalen Wesen. Diese Plastizität beschreibt die Philosophin Catherine Malabou im Buch, als „Tödliche Belebung des Seins“.

MZIN NEWS: HYBRID MODERNISM — MOVIE THEATRES IN SOUTH INDIA (SPECTOR BOOKS)

In the period from the 1950s to the 1970s, a large number of cinemas were built in both the urban and rural areas of South India. Their architecture is an unusual mix of Western influences and local building styles. The brightly coloured façades resemble stage sets and provide a foretaste of the film experience in the auditorium, where the extravagant forms and embellishments are continued, getting the audience in the mood for the cinematic world before the opening credits roll. One might call this architectural language a kind of hybrid modernism. Many of these cinemas have been maintained in their original state. However, in the big cities, the process of converting them into multiplexes has already begun. Haubitz+Zoche’s photographs from the period 2010 – 2013 document a piece of cinema culture that has already for the most part disappeared in Europe and the USA and is being increasingly displaced in India by commercial interests.

MZIN NEWS: NOON #06 — AW16 (UK)

The issue features fresh fashion stories from regular contributors Zoë Ghertner, Mel Bles and Robi Rodriguez, still life and fashion newcomer Chris Rhodes’ incredible cover story, a beautiful black and white portrait series by Mark Peckmezian, and a portfolio of unseen Mapplethorpe images accompanied by an exclusive interview with Juergen Teller and David Croland.

A bumper 176 pages, Issue 06 holds true to its reputation as a magazine which challenges and exceeds the status quo.
Noon is a magazine that explores the space between art, commerce and digital culture, investigating what it means to live in an Altermodern world. Thematically focused, each issue features a collection of fashion, photography, visual art, short stories, profiles and critical text.
It has been described as “the magazine that knits together art and fashion with the same subversive strength of vision that Juergen Teller brought to the genre - an organic, hazy and candid aesthetic that Noon are out on their own in achieving” (MagCulture) and a publication that "quickly established itself as a beautifully produced magazine that subverts tradition and places innovative collaboration at its forefront” (Dazed Digital).
Noon rejects standard editorial models and instead aims to cultivate a true creative exchange between editor and contributor. Celebrating the luxury of print, paper and ink, the magazine combines a large format with an experimental approach to aesthetics and material, challenging the politics of mass production.

MZIN NEWS: SOUTH (GR) — DOCUMENTA 14 #3

Ecology has as its Greek root oikos, meaning the entire habitat, house, or family—an interdependent ecosystem. (Economy has the same root.) We know it now as the study of the relationship between organisms and their environment, the interdependence of humans and their institutions. As Chickasaw poet Linda Hogan notes: “Here is a lesson: what happens to people and what happens to the land is the same thing.” And this is what the work that follows weighs. The third volume of the documenta 14 South as a State of Mind concerns the constant correlation among nature, capital, power, and language. The contributions that follow are documents of language, or hunger, or both. Why “language or hunger”? Consider the mouth a border, a boundary, a threshold: to swallow or to speak. Emptiness or language (or their meeting). On one side, inside, one feels physical hunger, a void; on the other side, outside, one puts forth language (into another void, perhaps). Hence language—being born with one, or finding it again, or creating one anew, a kind of lexicon—can be a means of nourishment, while hunger can be a form of resistance. Indeed, the new essays, poems, scripts, artists projects, and older manifestos and parables that together constitute this issue of South articulate the necessity of language, while considering consumption and hunger as political and aesthetic facts and fields that determined our past and will construct our collective future. “In contemporary times,” Nabil Ahmed writes, “emergent ecological crisis is a paradigmatic negative moment with regard to the unresolved dark twinning of capitalism and colonialism.” And it is this dark twinning that is our focus. If, as Ahmed declares, attentiveness to environmental violence is necessary for the “formation of an anticapitalist political ecology at once structural, social, psychic, and environmental,” we believe that an awareness of the role that language plays in this formation, as complicity or resistance, psychic or structural, is equally important. Language or hunger—a kind of border. A question (for you), also.
