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.

MZIN NEWS: ERIC VAN DER WEIJDE — THIS IS NOT MY BOOK (SPECTOR BOOKS)



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.

MZIN NEWS: ÄSTHETIK DER ZENSUR (NIGGLI)



Diese Publikation der in Berlin ansässigen Autorin und Gestalterin Marion Kliesch wurde mit dem „Wilhelm Braun-Feldweg-Förderpreis für designkritische Texte 2016“ und dem „Förderpreis für junge Buchgestaltung“ der Stiftung Buchkunst ausgezeichnet.

Bilder haben das Potential, Macht auszuüben, weswegen sie, früher wie heute, zurückgehalten und manipuliert werden. Die Gestalterin Marion Kliesch untersucht, wie Informationsunterdrückung bildhaft in Erscheinung tritt, also wie Bilder zensiert werden und was das für deren Rezeption bedeutet. Wie wirken diese Bilder und was lässt sich über ihre Ästhetik sagen? Und wie beeinflussen verdeckte, verpixelte oder unsichtbar gemachte Bilder unsere visuelle Wahrnehmung?
Im ersten Teil des Buches wird die Vielschichtigkeit des Themas aufgefächert und beschrieben. Im zweiten Teil werden stichprobenartig verschiedene Fälle von visueller Zensur aus den Bereichen Zensur des Körpers, Zensur des Raumes und Zensur des Gedächtnisses analysiert. Die Beispiele spannen einen Bogen vom Verpixeln von Körperteilen über das regelrechte Verschwinden von Landesteilen auf Satellitenbildern bis hin zu Zugangsblockaden zum Wissen der Welt im Internet.

MZIN RESTOCK: NO INTERNET, NO ART (ONOMATOPEE)

Today it has become increasingly difficult to find a person or an object without some kind of connection to the internet. No Internet, No Art is dedicated to exploring what this situation entails with respect to one cultural field in particular: art. This anthology forms both the culmination and a continuation of a series of public events titled Lunch Bytes – Thinking about Art and Digital Culture, held in Washington, D.C., which invited artists and experts from different fields to discuss their work in relation to this overarching theme.
By opening up the often narrowly-defined discursive field of “post-internet,” artistic practices are examined thematically within the larger context of digital culture. As such, this anthology offers valuable new contributions to the fields of art history, media studies, philosophy, curatorial studies, and design.

With contributions by:

MZIN NEWS: LOOK INSIDE — CUTAWAY ILLUSTRATIONS AND VISUAL STORYTELLING (VERLAG DIE GESTALTEN)

Looking at the outside of things such as architecture, anatomy, or vehicles does not usually reveal much about their internal structures and functions. To learn more, we need to see inside them. Look Inside features infographics that cut up or take apart their subjects and make them transparent. The resulting cross sections and interior views present precise detail in multiple layers.

Look Inside starts with a discussion of Arnhem Land, the earliest known cutaway illustrations, showing that even 28,000 years ago, humans had a fascination with how things internally work: the processes that are hidden from the human eye. Including work from both centuries past and the cutting-edge present, Look Inside is an unparalleled compendium of cutaway techniques and their wide-ranging applications. Works from Jewish-German physician Fritz Kahn’s imagine the human body as a mechanized factory; Kahn’s visual metaphors show conveyor belts and offices instead of veins and valves. Exploded images of classic sports cars allows Fabian Oefner to show every piece of the automotive puzzle from the body shell to individual tiny screws. Richard Orr’s scientific pieces represent the natural world and continue in the genre’s traditional thread of handmade illustrations; whether a beaver lodge or an arctic circle landscape, Orr presents a vivid natural world or layers and scientific hierarchies. The luxurious collection within Look Inside was curated by renowned information designers and creative directors, Samuel and Juan Velasco. The Velasco brothers have provided invaluable and inspirational insight in the history and theory of cutaway illustrations and visual storytelling.

Juan Velasco worked as Art Director at National Geographic for many years, has won multiple awards from the Society of News Design and Malofiej, and has served as the Graphics Art Director at the New York Times. He is the founder and creative director of 5W Infographics, a company based in Madrid, New York, and Washington, D.C. A detailed portrait of the information designer can be found in Gestalten’s A Life in Illustration.

Samuel Velasco is an original founder of the daily newspaper El Mundo, the second largest daily newspaper in Spain. After solidifying the role of El Mundo within the European infographics rise, he relocated to the US and became a graphic designer at Fortune magazine. He is now the creative director at 5W Infographics.

MZIN NEWS: SASAKI MAKI — DING DONG CIRCUS AND OTHER STORIES 1967-1974 (BREAKDOWN PRESS)

This collection presents, for the first time in English, the best of Sasaki Maki’s work, mainly from alt-manga super magazine Garo. Drawn between 1967 and 1974, the fifteen stories here follow Sasaki’s groundbreaking exploration of collage methods in comics storytelling, weaving through references to R&B, rock ‘n’ roll, the Vietnam War, Andy Warhol, the Summer of Love, the Beatles, British humour, and the wacky world of Japanese consumerism. Ding Dong Circus demonstrates what manga fans already knew: that in Sasaki Maki, Japan can claim not only a pioneer in experimental comics, but one of the world’s masters of Pop Art and a trenchant avant-garde critic of the Sixties.

MZIN RESTOCK: UP UP — STORIES OF JOHANNESBURGS´ HIGHRISES (HATJE CANTZ)



The publication Up Up—Stories of Johannesburg’s Highrises presents a selection of buildings in the inner city of Johannesburg. The focus lies on tall modernist towers that stood out at the time they were constructed. Witnesses to profound shifts in the political history of the metropolis, the buildings have gone through immense changes. They are documented in two distinct sections: One the one hand the formal architecture is presented with facts, floor plans, archival discoveries and contemporary images of the interior and the exterior. On the other hand each building is accompanied by a reportage or subjective essay on the inner workings of the building. Interviews with residents, research based texts on contemporary issues and independent contributions from invited writers, artists and photographers allow brief insights into the old and new lives of these towers.

MZIN NEWS: KALEIDOSCOPE #29 — VISUAL CULTURE NOW (IT)

We are delighted to announce the release of KALEIDOSCOPE’s new issue #29 (spring 2017), premiering in New York during Armory Week.
This issue comes with a set of three collectable covers dedicated to our MAIN THEME survey, Dancing After All, exploring the riveting relationship between dance and contemporary art. This themed survey offers a fresh and in-depth perspective on the revolutionary possibilities of the body in movement, analyzing its aesthetic power, political charge and social impact—from the stage to the club, from the street to the gallery. The section is comprised of three interviews with cover artists Anne Imhof (by Susanne Pfeffer), Ligia Lewis (by Martha Kirszenbaum) and Alex Baczynski-Jenkins (by Kathy Noble); an essay by Francesca Gavin on dance in pop culture; case studies on British creative force FKA Twigs and American dance pioneer Merce Cunningham; a round table with performers/choreographers Maria HassabiWill Rawls and Cally Spooner moderated by Charles Aubin; and a visual insert by artist Cécile B. Evans.
To follow, this issue's MONO section is dedicated to New York painter Peter Halley. One of the most theory-aware artists of his generation, here Halley talks at length with Fredi Fischli and Niels Olsen about how his practice transforms the language of geometric abstraction into a commentary on our post-industrial, technologically-governed society; while writer Wendy Vogel brings up back to the INDEX years (1996–2006), when Halley was the publisher of the cult magazine of indie culture. The feature is accompanied by an exclusive photo shoot by iconic New York fashion and celebrity photographer Roxanne Lowit.
The site for radical, specially-commissioned contributions by artists and creators, the VISIONS section includes: an insight into Loretta Fahrenholz’s new film, Two A.M., a fantasy tale on surveillance and social control; a conversation with curator Neville Wakefield (by Alessio Ascari) about the legacy of legendary 1970s magazine Avalanche; an intimate look to Talia Chetrit's pictures by fellow artist Sahra MotalebiSpyros Staveris’ photographic testament to the ‘90s queer and underground scene in Athens; an exclusive meet-up between Japanese photographer Nobuyoshi Araki and Mexican artist Abraham Cruzvillegas; a sneak peek of Bjarne Melgaard's new clothing line, violently embracing the obsessive and self-destructive aspects of fashion; an interview with American artist George Condo by his Italian colleague Maurizio Cattelan; and finally, an introduction to Lou Dallas, the rag-tag collective of NY artists, designers and self-styled debutantes, with photography by Oto Gillen and a text by Alexander Shulan.
In the opening section of HIGHLIGHTS, twelve profiles account for the best of the season: Augustus Thompson (by Samantha Gregg), Juan Antonio Olivares (by Allison Fonder), Caroline Mesquita (by Elisa Linn & Lennart Wolff), Ghetto Gastro (by Anicée Gaddis), Cibelle Cavalli Bastos(by Germano Dushá), Nico Young (by Myriam Ben Salah), Miao Ying(by Xin Wang), Derya Akay (by Jesse McKee), Enterprise Projects(by Stamatia Dimitrakopoulos), Flash Flash Flash (by Christopher Schreck), Jill Mulleady (by Franklin Melendez), and Diamond Stingily(by Hanna Girma).
Finally in our closing section of REGULARSVenus Lau joins the ranks of our columnists with “New Order,” a story-telling from a different time zone; Fiona Duncan looks at the photographic work of John Edmonds as part of her “Pro/Creative” series; Piper Marshall meets American artist Rachel Rose for some “Cheap Talk” on sound in film; in “Futura 89+,” Hans Ulrich Obrist and Simon Castets (with Katherine Dionysius) interview Ghanaian theater artist Elisabeth Sutherland; Alessio Ascaricontinues to probe the blurred lines of the visual reign in his series “Visualize,” interrogating the relationship between fashion and populism; and lastly, in “What’s Next,” we look forward to the season with Mohammed Al-Thani, the Founding Director of the New York-based Institute of Arab and Islamic Art.
This issue is accompanied by Biblical Brutalist Bauhaus Bakersfield, a special zine conceived and designed for KALEIDOSCOPE by visionary designer Rick Owens on the occasion of his exhibition “Furniture,” on view at MOCA Pacific Design Center in Los Angeles through 2 April.

The Militant Image Reader versammelt acht sehr verschiedenartige Texte von TheoretikerInnen und KünstlerInnen aus Europa und Nordamerika, die über das gegenwärtige Verhältnis von künstlerischer Repräsentation und sozialen Veränderungen spekulieren. Die Publikation lässt sich auf das militante Bild ein, ohne es definieren zu wollen – möglicherweise vergänglich, flüchtig, flüsternd und am Rande der Sichtbarkeit zirkulierend, zeigt das militante Bild dennoch, dass neue Voraussetzungen der Bilder auf die radikal ungleichen Voraussetzungen der Gegenwart reagieren müssen.

MZIN NEWS: HUSSEIN CHALAYAN (RIZZOLI)

Hussein Chalayan (*1970) ist der Konzeptkünstler unter den Modeschöpfern. Seine Entwürfe haben gleichermaßen mit dem Erzählen von Geschichten zu tun wie mit Stoff, Schnitt und Linie. Philosophie, Politik, Psychologie beeinflussen seine Kollektionen ebenso wie Farbe und Material.

Die Publikation versammelt seine bekanntesten und bedeutendsten Arbeiten: Etwa ein Kleid, das als Briefumschlag zusammengefaltet werden kann oder ein hölzerner Tisch, aus dem ein Rock wird. Alle Kollektionen tragen Titel und transportieren eine Leitidee. So befasst sich die in den Möbelkleidern gipfelnde Kollektion "After Words" mit Heimatlosigkeit und Vertreibung und die Designs der Serie "Airborne" thematisieren den Klimawandel.

Neben seinen Arbeiten im Bereich des Modedesign zeigt der Band auch seine Installationen, Videos und Fotografien. Texte erläutern Chalayans Vorgehensweise sowie die Funktionen und Bedeutungen seiner Kunst.

MZIN NEWS: IN PROGRESS — THE IID SESSIONS (AA PUBLICATIONS)

This book is the first to document the remarkable history of the International Institute of Design (IID), an independent school of architecture founded and directed by Alvin Boyarsky from 1970 – 72, and highlights a pivotal episode in the career of Boyarsky, best known for his subsequent role as chairman of the Architectural Association (1971 – 90). Launched in the wake of the institutional upheavals that had swept schools of architecture during the late 1960s, the IID introduced an alternative model of architectural instruction: one that brought together a range of teaching methods, design strategies, theories and projects alongside an international assortment of protagonists. In Progress details this short-lived experiment through a trove of previously unpublished material, and reveals how three informal architectural gatherings, held over three successive summers, can be seen to have established not only a network of architects and discourses, but a new model for architectural education.

In seinem Atelier legt Tillmans zur Übersicht Bilder auf langen Tischen aus, bevor sie an der Wand oder im Buch ihren Platz finden. Diese Arbeitsweise wird hier zum Konzept, das Buch zur Installation: In Manual ordnet er eigene Photographien, malerische Arbeiten und Texte sowie vorgefundene Zeitungsartikel zu einer assoziativen Gesamtschau an. Das Material verdichtet sich so zu einer komplexen künstlerischen Auseinandersetzung mit unterschiedlichen sozialen und politischen Themen, die der Künstler seit Jahren verfolgt. Tillmans schafft damit eine überzeugende Ergänzung zu seinen rein photographischen Arbeiten. Für Wolfgang Tillmans sind Installation und Präsentation seiner Arbeit ebenso wichtig wie die Arbeit selbst. Mit Manual assoziiert er ein "Handbuch" für die Erforschung der sichtbaren Welt. Es versteht sich aber auch als "Anleitung" zu Tillmans' Oeuvre, als Kompendium, in dem der Künstler seine persönliche Sicht auf die eigene Arbeit vorstellt.

MZIN NEWS: MIRABEL MAS — INTERFERENZEN, ZEICHNUNGEN UND GRAFIK (MMKOEHN)

In den Zeichnungen und Grafiken von Maribel Mas treten die Interferenzen zufällig auf, an den Berührungspunkten der Linien. Unter Verwendung von Schablonen aus Papier kann die Künsterin straffe Linien ziehen, die dann wie die Saiten eines Musikinstrumentes in Schwingung versetzt werden können. Tatsächlich haben die Wiederholungsmuster serieller Musik einen bemerkenswerten Einfluss auf ihre Arbeit, besonders die minimalistischen Kompositionen von Steve Reich und das Streben nach einer „phase music“, in der identische Klangphasen aufeinander gelegt werden mit minimalen Umstellungen. Mit einem ähnlichen Ansatz spielt die Künstlerin mit der Möglichkeit einer „phase drawing“. Dafür verwendet sie nur die einfachsten Materialien: Papier und Tusche.


Das Papier, mehr als eine tragende Oberfläche, wird zum aktiven Element. Den einzigartigen Charakter eines nicht industriellen, nicht standarisierten Materials zu verstehen und entdecken war ein langsamer Prozess, ermöglicht durch die Zusammenarbeit mit Handwerksmeistern in Japan, die die verschiedenen von ihr verwendeten Papiersorten aus Ganpi-, Mitsumata- und Kouzofasern herstellen.


In ihrer Barcelonaer Werkstatt und der Leipziger Spinnerei hat Maribel Mas an diversen Grafikprojekten mitgewirkt, in denen sie neue Möglichkeiten der Linie entdecken konnte. Ausgehend von diesen Erfahrungen mit Lithografie, Cliché verre und Photopolymer konzentriert sie ihr Werk auf sich wiederholenden Linien als konstruktives Element. Die Interferenzen, die auf natürliche Weise in einem Arbeitsverfahren ohne vorherige Skizzen entstehen, laden zum Nachdenken ein: über die Vielfältigkeit und Unbeständigkeit der Dinge – oder aber sie eröffnen einen Spielraum, in dem der Blick mit den Linien frei spielen kann.


Die Zeichnerin und Lithografin Maribel Mas ist 1967 in Caracas geboren. Im Jahr 2000 ließ sie sich in Barcelona nieder, wo sie sich auf Lithografie spezialisierte und 2005 die Druckwerkstatt „Taller Esquina“ gründete. Heute arbeitet sie gemeinsam mit Museen und Kunsthochschulen an verschiedenen grafischen Projekten. Ihre Werke sind bereits in vielen Städten ausgestellt worden – Barcelona, Madrid, Paris, Osaka und Leipzig, wo sie seit 2015 lebt.

MZIN NEWS: CANDIDA HÖFER — IN MEXICO (DISTANZ)

In 2014, Candida Höfer (b. Eberswalde, Germany, 1944; lives and works in Cologne) traveled to Mexico, visiting the eight cities Ciudad de México, Guadalajara, Guanajuato, Oaxaca, Puebla, Tepotzotlán, Tlacochahuaya, and Tonantzintla, where she photographed old and new libraries, theaters and opera houses, churches and museums, poorhouses and palaces. Most of the pictures are organized by symmetry along a central axis, a characteristic feature of her art. If these works suggest her training with Hilla and Bernd Becher, who taught photography in Düsseldorf—she is now the best-known of their students—others show a “new” Candida Höfer: old-fashioned offices, weather-beaten walls, and simple stores as well as a few expertly captured details of façades, floors, and interiors.

"In 1978 as the school year drew to a close two of my high school students who had tickets to a Rolling Stones Concert approached me and asked if I would like to go with them to the concert. After discussing it with my wife Nancy, who thought it was a good idea and promising photo opportunity, I was enthusiastic to go for the experience. My students were delighted that I’d be joining them. Besides they needed me to drive us to Philadelphia from Long Island, New York. So off we went for whatever adventure might lay ahead. And I carefully packed my three 35mm cameras and plenty of b&w film to record the event. Recently, I was inspired to revisit the contact sheets from that one day and choose images that still spoke to me after so many years. Here are some of those photographs I took on June 17th at JFK Stadium surrounded by 90,000 Rolling Stones fans who were so open to my camera. One footnote... Bill and Chris, my two students, are still in touch and we are good friends to this day. I am forever grateful to them for our trip to that Rolling Stones Concert."

Zurich Artist Noël Fischer started to collect these posters a few years back and has now — together with design studio Hammer — published them in this whimsical A3-sized book. This collection might as well be Jan Tschichold’s worst nightmare.

MZIN NEWS: TAIYO ONORATO / NICO KREBS — CONTINENTAL DRIFT (EDITION PATRICK FREY)

Im April 2013 begaben sich die Fotografen Nico Krebs und Taiyo Onorato – sie arbeiten seit zwölf Jahren zusammen – in einem Toyota Landcruiser Jahrgang 87 auf eine Reise in Richtung Osten. Die ungefähre Route war mit dem Finger auf der Landkarte abgefahren, ebenso der erhoffte Endpunkt der Reise bestimmt: Ulaanbataar, Hauptstadt der Mongolei. Eine richtige Expeditionsreise: ein Aufbruch ins mystische Reich des Ostens, Eurasia, Zentralasien, die Ausläufer des Himalajas, die Wälder Sibiriens, die Stan-Republiken, die gigantische Weite der ehemaligen Sowjetunion. Ein riesiger Kontinent, eine Landmasse, von der nur sehr wenige Bilder in unseren Köpfen verankert sind, zumindest keine klaren, definierten, eher ein Nebel aus Historie und Weltpolitik. Krebs und Onorato begaben sich auf die Suche nach diesen Bildern, sie wollten sie reproduzieren, sie selbst kreieren.

Continental Drift ist ein Trip entlang der Grenzen der Dokumentation und Fiktion eines unbekannten Terrains und seiner möglichen Vergangenheit und spekulativen Zukunft. Zentral waren die Momente des absolut Fremden, Unzugänglichen, Bizarren gepaart mit einer beeindruckenden Offenheit und Gastfreundschaft, die sie noch nie so ausschweifend erleben durften und in spürbarem Gegensatz zu ihrer letzten Reise durch die Vereinigten Staaten steht (The Great Unreal, bereits in dritter Auflage in der Edition Patrick Frey erschienen).

Viele der durchquerten Länder und Regionen befinden sich in einem Wandel: Irgendwo zwischen Jahrtausend alter Tradition und Historie, post-kommunistischer Standortbestimmung, religiösen, territorialen, ethnischen Wirren und dem dringenden Wunsch nach Anschluss an den globalen Turbokapitalismus – die Suche nach Identität ist spürbar. Diese Suche und auch Verwirrung widerspiegeln sich in Continental Drift

MZIN NEWS: APERTURE MAGAZINE #226 / SPRING (US) — AMERICAN DESTINY

“In this contentious moment in history, the stories we tell are a social responsibility.” —Sandra Cisneros
How does the photographer navigate our new national order? As debates about the economic future of the United States continue into a controversial presidential administration, the spring issue of Aperture, “American Destiny,” offers an urgent reflection on photography, labor, and community. From agricultural workers to those toiling on the factory floor, from regional cities weathering years of postindustrial decline to refugee populations assimilating into the heartland, the photographers featured in this issue are bound by a desire to reveal how lives are shaped by the ebb and flow of the economy. “American Destiny” maps geographies of economic promises unfulfilled, weighing how the interrelated factors of class, sexism, education, shifting demographics, racism, and stagnant wages have influenced social life in the United States.
“American Destiny” features LaToya Ruby Frazier and Kellie Jones on the enduring images of the civil rights movement; Katy Grannan on the communities of California’s Highway 99; Rebecca Bengal on activist Chauncey Hare’s 1970s chronicle of American workers; Brian Wallis on the union hall agitator Fred Lonidier; plus contributions and portfolios by Garnette Cadogan, David Campany, Sandra Cisneros, Carolyn Drake, Jim Goldberg & Donovan Wylie, Gregory Halpern, Kathya Maria Landeros, Mark Neville, Alessandra Sanguinetti, Brian Sholis, Stanley Wolukau-Wanambwa, and much more.

MZIN NEWS: DÄCHERSTREIT — STEILDACH/FLACHDACH (ADOCS)

Markus Grob erzählt die Geschichte der Architektur im 20. Jahrhundert entlang einer Reihe von Einfamilienhäusern. Ihre entweder steilen oder flachen Dächer analysiert er als aus dem 19. Jahrhundert hervorgegangene Formen, deren Gegeneinander in einem „Dächerstreit“ mündet. Damit wirft er einen bisher nicht dagewesenen, neuen Blick auf die Baugeschichte des vergangenen Jahrhunderts und auf seine Siedlungsformen von Vorstadt, Speckgürtel und Agglomeration.

„Merkwürdig, wie diese beiden Dachformen im vergangenen Jahrhundert gegeneinander ausgespielt wurden, [...] entsprachen [sie] folglich zumindest anfangs verwandten Lebensvorstellungen, bevor sich diese zu gegensätzlichen gesellschaftlichen Programmen auseinanderentwickelten und die Dächer zu Zeichen im Streit um die Vorherrschaft machten, der im Entsetzlichen mündete. Die Scham danach wollt nichts mehr wissen von allem, was darunter ausgeheckt worden ist: so blieben Dächer schließlich als leere Formen zurück und dem jeweils eigenen Kalkül der Bewohner, Entwerfer und Kreditgeber überlassen. Und doch gibt es noch beide Formen, weiterhin sind sie von den Vorlieben getragen, ist ihre Wirkung nicht aufgehoben, nur ist diese unbestimmt geworden.“ (Markus Grob)
17 auf Spaziergängen selber gemachte Fotografien bilden den Auftakt einer ersten Untersuchung. Diese Reihe wird begleitet von ausführlichen Legenden, die den jeweiligen Anspielungszusammenhang skizzieren. Auf den letzten 16 Seiten findet der Leser ein Resumée der Beobachtungen und Recherchen als Erzählung. Mit der Frage nach flach oder steil und dem Form- und Lebensgefühl des 20. Jahrhunderts dokumentiert das Buch die Suche nach der geeigneten Bauform der damaligen Architekten und Bauherren dieses aufreibenden Jahrhunderts.

MZIN NEWS: DAN GRAHAM — ROCK MUSIC WRITINGS (PRIMARY INFORMATON)

Rock/music writings collects dan graham’s influential writings about rock and roll music and its cultural impact. first published in 2009, rock/music writings includes thirteen essays written between 1968 and 1988, most of which were originally printed in small magazines or journals, including extensions, fusion, real life, and zg. graham was a friend and supporter of many musicians active in the no wave scene that was centered around new york city in the late ’70s. in addition to collaborating with musicians during this period, graham created “rock my religion,” a video that demonstrates parallels between rock music culture and religious rituals, such as shaker dances and revivalist meetings. the work’s related text, also titled “rock my religion,” is included in rock/music writings, along with texts such as “the end of liberalism,” “new wave rock and the feminine,” “mclaren’s children,” and “artist as producer.” these texts examine the lyrics and backgrounds of bands like the beatles, the kinks, devo, the ramones, the patti smith group, the sex pistols, and bow wow wow, relating them to consumerism and visual art movements, including abstract expressionism and pop art. dan graham is an artist based in new york. since the 1960s, he has produced a wide range of work and writing that engages in a highly analytical discourse on the historical, social, and ideological functions of contemporary cultural systems. architecture, popular music, video, and television are among the focuses of his investigations, which he articulates through essays, performances, installations, videotapes, and architectural/sculptural designs.

MZIN NEWS: AA FILES #73 — JOURNAL OF ARCHITECTUAL ASSOCIATION LONDON (AA)

AA Files is the Architectural Association School of Architecture’s journal of record and the successor to a long line of AA house journals (including titles such as AA Notes, AA Journal, Arena and AAQ) that began with the school’s founding in 1847. Launched in 1981 by the AA’s then chairman, Alvin Boyarsky, the journal appears twice a year and is sent out to members of the Architectural Association, individual subscribers and is distributed to a global network of bookshops. Since 2007 AA Files has been under the editorship of Thomas Weaver, the fourth of its editors, following Mary Wall, Mark Rappolt and David Terrien, who, with issue 57, initiated a redesign that saw the introduction of a new graphic design template, developed and still produced by the John Morgan studio, and a shift of focus in terms of its content towards more writerly models of scholarship, criticism and investigation, prompted not only by work, exhibitions and events from within the school, but by a rich and eclectic mix of architectural enquiry from all over the world.

MZIN NEWS: F.C. GUNDLACH — THE PHOTOGRAPHIC WORK (STEIDL)

Dieser Band ist die definitive Monographie zum Werk von F.C. Gundlach (*1926), einem der bedeutendsten deutschen Modefotografen der Nachkriegszeit. Vier Jahrzehnte lang hat Gundlach in seinen Bildern Mode in Szene gesetzt und damit selbst ein Stück Modegeschichte geschrieben – die Geschichte der Kleidung, aber auch der Posen und Gesten, Requisiten und Locations, der Schönheitsideale in ihrem Wandel.

Daneben entstanden einfühlsame Porträts und Reportagen, Aufnahmen im Stil der subjektiven Fotografie sowie Reiseaufnahmen. Seinem Selbstverständnis nach war F.C. Gundlach stets Fotograf im Auftrag. Tätig für auflagenstarke Zeitschriften, hat er die Wahrnehmung von Mode geprägt. Umgekehrt reflektieren seine Arbeiten in Schwarzweiß und Farbe den Geist ihrer Zeit – vom Optimismus der kargen Nachkriegsjahre über die Op- und Pop-Ästhetik bis hin zur anbrechenden Postmoderne.
Dass seine Bilder auch isoliert bestehen können, belegt ihren ästhetischen Rang. Besichtigt wird ein Lebenswerk zwischen Dokument und Erfindung, Dienstleistung und künstlerischem Anspruch.

MZIN NEWS: ANDREAS MÜHE — ABC (DISTANZ)

Quickly peek inside, and the scene that’s taking place there gets stuck on your mind”—that’s how the 32-year-old photographer Andreas Mühe (b. Karl-Marx-Stadt, 1979; lives and works in Berlin) describes the effect he hopes his pictures will have. Like the photograph of Helmut Schmidt’s office he chose for the cover of this book. In fact, he leaves nothing to chance, staging each setting down to the smallest detail. Deliberate selection of the space and precise lighting have become his trademark.

His unconventional style has made Mühe the shooting star of the German photography scene and a sought-after portraitist of prominent politicians and celebrities such as Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg, the Italian ambassador Antonio Puri Purini, Christiane zu Salm, and Gerhard Richter.

MZIN RESTOCK: ALICE RAWSTHORN — HELLO WORLD (PENGUIN)

Design is one of the most powerful forces in our lives. when deployed wisely, it can bring us pleasure, choice, strength, decency and much more. but if its power is abused, the outcome can be wasteful, confusing, humiliating, even dangerous. none of us can avoid being affected by design, whether or not we wish to. it is so ubiquitous that it determines how we feel and what we do, often without our noticing. hello world explores design’s influence on our lives. written by the renowned design critic alice rawsthorn and designed by the award-winning book designer irma boom, it describes how warlords, scientists, farmers, hackers, activists and designers have used design to different ends throughout history: from the macabre symbol invented by 18th century pirates to terrorise their victims into surrender, to one woman’s quest for the best possible prosthetic legs and the evolution of the world cup ball. at a time when we face colossal changes, unprecedented in their speed, scale and intensity – from the deepening environmental crisis, to giant leaps in science and technology – hello world explains how design can help us to make sense of them andto turn them to our advantage. ‘hello world is a new book by alice rawsthorn, the one and only, the best design critic in the entire world. she keeps the banner of design flying high. irma boom designed it, and irma is simply the best book designer alive’ paola antonelli, senior curator of architecture and design at the museum of modern art, new york praise for alice rawsthorn’s yves saint laurent ‘as gripping as a thriller, packed with plot, character and atmosphere’ the times ‘rawsthorn’s excellent biography isn’t merely a story about clothes, but of crises, comebacks and drug clinics, and as a document of the time it is compulsive’ evening standard ‘the best book i have ever read about the mesmerising cruelty of fashion’ the spectator ‘intelligent and pragmatic… this is a page-turner of a book’ new statesman ‘what a story! a skilful interweaving of the artistic, business and emotional life of a great couture house’ mail on sunday alice rawsthorn is the design critic of the international herald tribune, the global edition of the new york times. her weekly design column is syndicated worldwide. a trustee of arts council england and the whitechapel gallery in london, she is chair of trustees at the chisenhale gallery and the author of an acclaimed biography of yves saint laurent.

_Renaissance analoger Druckverfahren
_Fundierter einführendender Überblick 
_Fokus auf die aktuelle Risographie-Szene
_Mit umfangreicher Dokumentation risographischer Erzeugnisse 

Die Risographie, benannt nach der japanischen Firma Riso, ist ein Schablonendruckverfahren nach Art der Siebdrucktechnik, welches in der Übergangsphase vom mechanischen zum digitalen Drucken entwickelt wurde. Obwohl die Druckmaschine aussieht wie ein Kopiergerät, wird die Farbe ohne Anwendung von Hitze und Chemie auf das Papier gebracht, also energiesparend und ökologisch. Heute haben Grafiker und Designer aus der ganzen Welt den Risographen – und die entsprechenden Maschinen für ähnliche, schon fast vergessene Techniken wie die Mimeographie– für sich entdeckt und eine unerwartete Renaissance des analogen Druckens in Gang gesetzt. 
Auf eine sorgfältig recherchierte Einführung über Vergangenheit, Gegenwart und Zukunft folgt ein Beitrag über wichtige Pioniere der aktuellen Risographie-Szene. Im Kapitel Risoworld werden besondere risographie-affine Verlage, Druckereien und Designstudios aus der ganzen Welt vorgestellt. Das Herzstück des Bandes sind wunderbare, ganz unterschiedliche Arbeiten wie Postkarten, Magazine, Poster, Flyer und experimentelle Druckerzeugnisse, die allesamt durch die Kraft der Farben der ganz eigenen Textur und vor allem der perfekt unperfekten Authentizität der Risographie begeistern.

it is also to become preparation, plastic or machine, since within our planetary

the world. Such impure transformations are nevertheless production, processing
and birth, for the process of creation is necessarily filthy, whilst, as Radomir
