MZIN NEWS: MARK TERKESSIDIS — KOLLABORATIONEN (SUHRKAMP)



Die Proteste der letzten Zeit haben die Unzufriedenheit der Bürger offenbart: Politiker scheinen weit weg vom Alltag und mit Großprojekten wie Bahnhöfen oder Flughäfen überfordert. Im Gegensatz dazu sind die Menschen eigensinnig wie nie. Nach Jahren der neoliberalen Predigten sind sie in Eigenverantwortung geübt: Gemeinsam erschaffen sie die Wikipedia, renovieren Klassenzimmer oder gründen gleich selbst Schulen. So werden sie im positiven Sinne zu Kollaborateuren. Anknüpfend an seine Überlegungen aus Interkultur (es 2589) entwirft Mark Terkessidis eine Philosophie der Kollaboration, die beim wütenden und suchenden Individuum ansetzt. Eine Gesellschaft der Vielfalt, so Terkessidis, kann nur funktionieren, wenn viele Stimmen gehört werden und unterschiedliche Menschen zusammenarbeiten.

MZIN RESTOCK: GIRLS LIKE US #9 (NL) — DANCE AND DANCING



It has been a longstanding wish to expand Girls Like Us beyond the editorial team, to use this platform for different voices and disciplines and to experiment with pushing the publication to another plateau. Horizontally — not vertically. When New York-based artist and writer Emma Hedditch approached us in fall of 2016 to work together on a special issue themed around DANCE & DANCING, the opportunity for this expansion arose. DANCE AND DANCING explores the New York dance scene – past, present and future.

MZIN NEWS: A PUBLIC CHARACTER — SHANNON EBENER (ROMA)



This book was published after Shannon Ebner's exhibition A Public Character, held at the Institute of Contemporary Art, Miami. Ebner's work is an extended mediation of language that often takes the form of photography. Certain aspects, especially seen in the ongoing series 'Black Box Collision A', represent her efforts to reflect upon our experience of language at the intersection of landscape and architecture, looking to the social world as a realistic, concrete location of poetics found and made; observed and constructed. Also included are the works A Hudson Yard, A Self, and A Singular, as well as the title work A Public Character. Essays by Alex Gartenfeld, Bruce Hainley, Laura Hoptman, Eileen Myles and Ellen Salpeter. Design: Julia Born.

MZIN RESTOCK: BATIA SUTER — PARALLEL ENCYCLOPEDIA #2 (ROMA)



Batia Suter's work intuitively situates found images in new contexts to provoke surprising reactions and significative possibilities. This volume follows on from the first Parallel Encyclopedia, published in 2007. Underlying themes of Suter's practice are the "iconification" and "immunogenicity" of old images, and the circumstances by which they become charged with new associative values. "In my work, I collect groups of images based on various themes and characteristics, and I investigate how they can manipulate each other, depending on where and how they are placed. In the process of making this book, narrative lines unfolded before my eyes as I shifted images around." Design: Roger Willems.

MZIN NEWS: SHOBO SHOBO (POPPER PUBLISHING)



Popper Magazine is the first Latvian illustration magazine, established on 2012 and made by enthusiastic artists, passionate about the visual form of illustration. If it’s said that picture or photograph can speak a 1000 words for itself, then we believe that an illustration can speak and reveal much more than that. Therefore, our goal is to communicate with people through visual language and also to make a contribution to the Latvian cultural life.

From 2014 our concept has changed a bit and now we are Popper Publishing. We are going to be a platform for books, artzines and other projects about illustration, graphic design, photography and fine art. Our main focus will still be on illustration with good old original Popper Magazine publishing.

Popper Publishing has published artists such as Shoboshobo, Ian Stevenson, Zosen, Ekta, 108, Moneyless, Tellas, Dem, Aleksandra Waliszewska, Laurent Impeduglia, Pakito Bolino, Tommi Musturi, Brecht Vandenbroucke, Raymond Lemstra, Malarky, Hell’O Monsters, Escif, Okuda San Miguel, Low Bros, Luke Ramsey, Gary Baseman, Ted Parker, Nick Mann, Elzo Durt, Stéphane Blanquet, Ohta Keiichi, Grimes & many more.

MZIN NEWS: JONAS MEKAS — I HAD NOWHERE TO GO (SPECTOR BOOKS)



Jonas Mekas has worked together with Andy Warhol, George Maciunas, John Lennon, and many others. In New York he was an influential figure in the New American Cinema, although he came to film-making relatively late. In 1944 Mekas and his younger brother Adolfas had to flee from the Nazis for copying leaflets. They were interned for eight months in a labour camp in Elmshorn. The Soviet occupation prevented him from returning to his native Lithuania after the war and, classed as a “displaced person”, he lived in DP camps in Wiesbaden and Kassel. Towards the end of 1949 he and his brother emigrated to New York. In his autobiography I Had Nowhere to Go he describes his survival in the camps and his arrival in New York. Mekas tells a universal story, that of an émigré who can never go back, whose loneliness in his new world is emblematic of human existence.

MZIN RESTOCK: VOLUME #50 — BEYOND ARCHITECTURE (NL)

When 'Volume' started as "magazine to go beyond architecture" in 2005, the world was a different one. There was a lot of attention for the spectacular in architecture, for instance, and little for where society was going in relation to architecture: the urgencies and opportunities architecture could and should engage with. Since, Volume explored a wide variety of topics and terrains, each time looking for the added value of architecture. So, what is the situation today? in this issue 'Volume' focuses on current dilemmas (young) architects are confronted with, both in education and in setting up their office. It’s less about ‘going beyond’ as such, and more about impact and repercussions.

MZIN NEWS: KARL-HEINZ ADLER — KUNST IM SYSTEM. SYSTEM IN DER KUNST. (SPECTOR BOOKS)



At the end of the 1950s Karl-Heinz Adler began to reinvent himself as an artist: he arranged fanned layerings of the same geometric elements, constructivist collages of interpenetrating rectangles, and laminations of transparent film, later followed by large-scale “serial linear forms”. His art was rejected in the GDR, even if it had a direct influence on the everyday life of many people in the new housing developments. In 1968, together with his artist colleague Friedrich Kracht, he had developed the “concrete/breeze block programme”, a construction kit of twelve basic modular forms that shortly afterwards went into production and from then on shaped the look of satellite towns. The book includes an interview conducted by Hans Ulrich Obrist on the occasion of the artist’s ninetieth birthday. Exhibitions at the Albertinum in Dresden (April – June 2017) and at the Kassák Museum and Kiscelli Museum in Budapest (both May–August 2017).

MZIN NEWS: SPACE COLONIES — A GALACTIC FREEMAN´S JOURNAL (SPECTOR BOOKS)






At the beginning of the 1970s US American physicist Gerard K. O’Neill developed the first ideas for colonizing space. Shortly thereafter, Stewart Brand, cybercommunard and editor of the Whole Earth Catalog, took up these ideas and published the book Space Colonies. In this and in other editions of the CoEvolution Quarterly, the issue of whether space might already be colonized in the year 2000 is discussed. Fabian Reimann’s Space Colonies. A Galactic Freeman’s Journal refers to these publications. In his photo essay he assembles historical, present-day, and speculative material, which he combines with fictional and factual stories to create a composite of different images of the world.

MZIN NEWS: ELEPHANT #31 — BEYOND GENDER (UK)



“If there was a clearly defined place for me to go, where I would be welcomed and at peace, I would surely have gone there many years ago.” Justin Vivian Bond is one of a growing number of artists who explore gender identity in non-binary terms.

In this issue, we look around the world to find the artists who are redefining gender for the twenty-first century and, in many cases, doing away with such definitions altogether. Chinese photographer Ren Hang, who tragically died in February, is central to our investigation as we trace his journey beyond gender to capture a world of giddy, boundary-defying freedom. “Genders can be attached and detached from the body. Like dildos, you can have many,” according to US artist A.L. Steiner. In Ghana we speak to Eric Gyamfi, whose work investigates universal concepts of gender but is strongly rooted in the local, while in Japan we meet Yoshiko Shimada, one of the first artists there to use the f-word—feminism.

In our Journal section, Maki Hakui investigate the cultural phenomenon of “Boys’ Love” manga in Japan while Andrew Spyrou reveals the art of Athens when Documenta isn’t in town. Columnists Mel Byars discusses psychedelic design and Ben Eastham hails the return of the art object.

There’s also a Paper Gallery dedicated to the lucid illustrative dreaming of Klaus Kremmerz, in addition to Encounters with Jose Dávila, Marcel Dzama, Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster, Kahlil Joseph, Santiago Sierra and Fabienne Verdier.

MZIN NEWS: PICTURE NEWSPAPER #1 (US)

Newspaper was started in 1969 by Steve Lawrence, and it ran for nine issues till 1971. It was a small press publication that spotlighted work by figures of the Downtown NY scene. A pivotal publication for the time, Newspaper was a product of the conceptual art movement and an emphasis on media systems and subversion. In 1970 it was part of the Information show at MoMA -- widely acknowledged as the first large survey on conceptual art. Over the years and after the AIDS crisis, Newspaper was lost and Steve Lawrence's work faded into obscurity.

In researching the original, NEWSPAPER has been inspired to make a call for the return of the transgression of earlier queer forefathers — an intellectual awareness, openness and love deeply informed by countercultural thinking. It is an exercise of looking back in order to move forward. As particular queer images of beauty, body, consciousness, and identity have emerged in mainstream visual culture and media, damage has been done. Over time they have established themselves in most media. This will be a space for artists, living and dead, that loudly or quietly promote an investigation or redefinition of these images in order to express their own sensibility.48 pgs, 42 × 29 cm, Softcover, 2016,

MZIN NEWS: JEFF HAHN — PORT YARIN (—)


Addressing ideas of ethnicity and identity, Port Yarin serves as a visual documentation of a fictional town, a home to the wandering souls of the racially ambiguous, third culture kids of the world. In and around the collated cityscapes and landscapes are the subjects, swathed in the glow of dusk and neon lights, haunted by a sense of foreboding; in many ways reflecting the feeling of unrest faced by minority groups in the political world today. Port Yarin is about embracing the melting pot of influences that form our construct of ethnicity, forging a new future identity.

MZIN NEWS: 032C — MANUAL FOR CREATIVITY, RESEARCH AND FREEDOM #32 (D)



How do you find truth in an age without facts? The answer: wake up and stick together. In this issue’s dossier “US vs. THEM,” creative director RICHARD TURLEY explores how the Global Right Wing’s blatant disregard for reality has given us all a license to become Nonsense Warriors. Turning away from “them” and towards “us,” CATHERINE OPIE, NICOLAS GHESQUIÈRE, and STEFANO PILATI take us into their inner circles of friends, while COLLIER SCHORR turns BELLA HADID into Lisa Lyon. We revisit the work of MICHAEL SCHMIDT, and how his community workshops turned Berlin into a cauldron of contemporary photography. JACKIE NICKERSON shows us what Robert Longo looks like with a faster Internet connection, while CARSTEN HÖLLER takes us into his kitchen to explore the post-digital nature of food. We speak with VIRGIL ABLOH as he plots a fashion industry coup d’état and follow JASON DILL on a skate odyssey to hell and back to Fucking Awesome. And, last but not least, we make a pilgrimage to Santo Sospir, the villa on the Riviera where JEAN COCTEAU created his greatest Gesamtkunstwerk.

Also included with the issue, our “HEAT UP HADID” TRANSFER KIT which allows you to create your own t-shirt emblazoned with this issue’s BELLA HADID cover.

In the last ten years, the Dutch photographer Erik van der Weijde has been responsible for over fifty publications: these include not only slim photozines and simply produced brochures but also voluminous cloth-bound books — many of them distributed via his own publishing house 4478ZINE. This Is Not My Book provides for the first time an overview of his work, which constitutes one of the most important artistic positions at the interface between photography and independent publishing. The book uses large-format representations to show the lines of connection between the individual publications. It also contains van der Weijde’s 4478ZINE publishing manifesto and other texts as well as five conversations with the publishers Anne König and Jan Wenzel. This Is Not My Book indicates a full stop, an act of punctuation set down by the author with his published work.

MZIN NEWS: HANK SCHMIDT IN DER BEEK / FABIAN SCHUBERT — UND IM SOMMER TU ICH MALEN (EDITION TAUBE)



Wir finden einen Künstler in malerischen Landschaften, Kunstinteressierte erkennen die Orte, an denen schon die bedeutendsten Maler der letzten Jahrhunderte gemalt haben. Dort, wo der Blaue Reiter, Monet oder Van Gogh gewirkt haben, steht Hank Schmidt in der Beek im karierten Hemd vor seiner Leinwand, die auf einer Staffelei ruht. Seine Hand hält den Pinsel, er malt. Jedoch erkennt man auf der Leinwand nicht die Motive, die die berühmten Vorgänger hier malten: Die Leinwand zeigt das selbe karierte Muster, das auch das Hemd des Malers ziert.

Seit 2009 arbeitet Hank Schmidt in der Beek an der fortführenden Reihe „Und im Sommer tu ich malen“. Gemeinsam mit dem Fotografen Fabian Schubert reist er durch ganz Europa, um an den Wirkungsorten berühmter Maler seine Kleidung zu malen.
