High concept and high fashion collide in the 11”x 17” Reader, a compilation of texts and images that examine and challenge the fashion industry’s prevailing value system while proposing new working methods. Through the reuse of samples, stock and archive items donated by various fashion brands, van Joolen developed two new series of products that are both conceptual and wearable: a series of unique 11”x 17” Sweaters and hybrid “inside-out” sneakers and sandals titled Invert Footwear. Bringing together the ethical components of production with intellectual property in our hyper-branded society, the project asks what constitutes a clothing collection? To whom does a piece of clothing really belong? Merging this with a hands-on approach, Van Joolen dares to challenge and rethink the current fashion system, proposing new models of production and presentation in a time when sustainability and cost efficiency are powerful forces. For this project, van Joolen collaborated with brands such as Converse, O’Neill, G Star, Nike and Monique van Heist. She asked the brands to deliver sample pieces and a crew neck sweater from which she cut a tabloidsized, 11 x 17-inch swatch. By mixing the pieces of different brands to create a new “collection”, the concept of branding is challenged. High-end sneakers get a similar treatment, turned inside out with dollar store flip-flops added as souls, and the rubber souls of those turned into sandals. The exposed stitching details reveal the hand of the craftsman—a nameless factory worker. Through conversations with Lynn Berger, Pascale Gatzen, Ruby Hoette, Alexandra Landre and José Teunissen, all noted experts in the field, and model-worn photographs from renowned Dutch fashion photographers Blommers / Schumm, van Joolen explores these questions that lie at the heart of this project.—Onomatopee

Alan Reid: Warm Equations Add to Cart Information

$ 50.00

1234567/7

Warm Equations is a monograph that’s not a monograph but more of a chorus of voices on the mercurial new collage paintings by New York–based artist Alan Reid. The concept of this substantial book pivots around the artist’s deferral of authorial closure, shifting the emphasis from his work to multiple contributors. Edited by independent curator Rachel Valinsky, Reid’s paintings are interleaved with writings and poems by eight authors including Matthew Brannon, Corinna Copp, Jill Gasparina, Kristen Kosmas, Ella Kruglyanskaya, Lisa Robertson, Chris Sharp, Rachel Valinsky and Jamieson Webster, who pronounce their own concerns and set textual tempos and rhythms that run amok non-hierarchically, latching onto Reid’s metaphors or installing their own. Valinsky’s multi-voice concept is the perfect response to Reid’s mixed-media collaged portraits of androgynous models. Sketched over with references to music, poetry, sex, clothing, dresses and decorations, they hover aloof, between kitsch and the elegantly sublime.

Bauhaus News: Contemporary Remarks Add to Cart Information

12345/5

As its 2019 centenary approaches, we are reminded that the Bauhaus was not only a new school type but an entirely new approach to knowledge acquisition. To what extent is the Bauhaus tied to its place and history? Can it guide critical practice in today’s globalized world? Inspire alternative educational models? Gathered in this dense and intelligent reader are discussions, stories and statements from an international group of over 50 Bauhaus experts, including original texts by Walter Gropius and Moholy-Nagy and texts by curators, historians, philosophers, artists and architects who met in 2014 to discuss the school’s history and future relevance. Organized into three sections addressing Bauhaus location, history and character, the book highlights its open-ended curriculum, workshop-based combination of research and design, theory and practice, and its structural inte- gration of artistic disciplines that make it a model for the future. And it’s a good thing, too, as we face the imperative to sustain our exploding population in the next hundred years.

Some 70 years after the death of Oskar Schlemmer, bauhaus magazine casts a light on the achievements of the Bauhaus theater and dance legend. The new issue is published in conjunction with Human-Space-Machine, an exhibition at Bauhaus Dessau of products, designs and concepts examining the Bauhaus stage and its major protagonists—Schlemmer, Walter Gropius and László Moholy-Nagy—whose inventiveness led to the symbols and images of a new, modern subjectivity. It provocatively delves into questions about the relationship between human and machine, the industrialization of human beings and the humanization of the machine, among other topics, considering progress in the fields of genetics, neurobiology and communications technology and bringing forward Schlemmer’s innovations and experiments to the present moment.

After 80 years it’s back! BAUHAUS—the Bauhaus Dessau Foundation’s magazine, anyway. Everything from the Bauhaus world: essays, interviews and more. The first issue of bauhaus magazine was published in December 1926 to coincide with the opening of Walter Gropius’s classic Bauhaus building in Dessau. For five years, it reported on the most important modern trends, with Gropius, László Moholy-Nagy, Ernst Kallai and Hannes Meyer contributing as editors and texts from iconic figures such as Paul Klee, Wassily Kandinsky, Marcel Breuer and Ludwig Hilberseimer. The current Bauhaus Dessau Foundation is now publishing a new magazine under the old name—to cultivate the legacy of the historic Bauhaus and, given the ideas and approaches of the historic Bauhaus, to address issues of design in the present-day environment. The biannual magazine aims to focus not only on activities in Dessau, but also on those of an international network exploring issues of design. The magazine itself provides a platform for contemporary design, choosing a new graphic designer each year to produce two issues and making it extra-covetable for lovers of the printed word.

In this issue: Parallel to the foundation’s retrospective of designer Marcel Breuer, this issue seeks out objects that may at first sight appear banal, but which permit the analysis of utopia and its emancipatory effects, of fetish and consumer behavior—from teaspoon to cactus, from price tag to mirror, from casing to timetable.

Camille Henrot: Elephant Child Add to Cart Information

In this beautifully designed and sensuously illustrated hybrid artist book / exhibition document, New York–based French artist Camille Henrot reconsiders source material and ideas from her Artist Research Fellowship at the Smithsonian, her 2013 video Grosse Fatigue and her installation The Pale Fox (2014–15), which was shown at several museums throughout Europe. The accompanying text by Henrot, in collaboration with Clara Meister and Michael Connor, forms the core of the book, and is in keeping with Henrot’s characteristic approach to knowledge production and organization. An interview between the artist and social anthropologist Monique Jeudy-Ballini offers further insight into Henrot’s mode of thinking and her fascination with anthropology. A natural continuation of her artistic practice, Elephant Child combines Henrot’s research materials, photographic fragments, preparatory notes and sketches alongside color photographs of the artist’s sculptures, video stills and installation images.

123456/6
The furniture and objets d’art of “Frasier,” as selected by the series’ writers and production designers, demonstrate a curatorial process based on the comedic merit of each piece—its suitability for humor in reference. The art world, perceived by most as recondite, thriving on exclusion, and reserved only for the elite has been turned on its head and repurposed, through comedy, for the audience’s inclusion. By making us laugh, the show brings art and design to a mass audience, redelivering one of civilization’s most cumbersome topics as something joyous, appealing, and fascinatingly accessible. - Cooperative Editions

Composite / Jan Kempenaers Add to Cart Information

$ 67.00

1234/4

Jan Kempenaers has been photographing urban and natural landscapes for over two decades. For this series of images, he applies the formal language of the documentary style, with its detached viewpoint emphasising the isolation and desolation of the strange structures in the frame. This causes a heightened sense of inaccessibility in the viewer, a sense of alienation exacerbated by the alien nature of the structures themselves. What are these objects, who built them, and why? Interspersed are composite photographs Kempenaers has made by cutting details from the images and overlapping them, thereby creating darkly idiosyncratic renderings of the same subjects.

Flaka Haliti: Speculating on the Blue Add to Cart Information

$ 30.00

123/3

For the Kosovo Pavilion at the 56th Venice Biennale, artist Flaka Haliti created the installation Speculating on the Blue, reflecting on the meaning of borders, democracy, freedom and mobility. The skeletons of barrier-like objects in the space are a reference to the aesthetics of the concrete walls that are erected between nations as a materialization of conflict. Haliti’s installation aims at demilitarizing and decontextualizing this specific aesthetic practice by stripping the columns down to their material essence and juxtaposing them with elements that are by nature resistant to the concept of borders. In this scenario, the horizon and the blue pictorial ground, which directly references the blue-painted barriers in front of the Kosovo UN, create a counter image to the concept of borders as a tool to raise new perspectives. In addition is an artist’s conversation with Markus Miessen and an essay by curator Vanessa Joan Müller.

Gestalt is an overview of the diverse artistic practice of Fos, who’s works explore how the language of objects and space define us as social beings. The book sits somewhere between a monograph and an artist book, with 12 years of works collected into an organic flow which document but also re-interpret and re-contextualise the objects and spaces which accumulate to form his practice. The book is made up of an indexed flow of works punctuated by a series of commissioned texts from curators, scientists and theorists. It includes numerous foldout pages and employs an eclectic range of papers and print finishes. Gestalt was made from early-2016 to mid-2017 between London and Copenhagen and is the result of a close collaboration between the artist and OK-RM.

Gloom Add to Cart Information

$ 35.00

12345/5

Gloom addresses the difficulty in telling someone that you are having a hard time, or that you are sad. These conversations usually require someone to present their situation in a comical manner so that they can disarm the overwhelming task of saying, “I am sad.” Ideal male stereotypes have been presented to me via the super-hero cartoons I grew up watching. By making photographs, I am reconciling these stereotypes with my own identity. The work is a Frankenstein of nostalgic memories, stitched to the tragedy of becoming an adult. My obsession with fantasy doesn’t necessarily equate to a lack of interest in reality, but it does cultivate a unique loneliness.

This densely illustrated book presents the collaborative graphic design studio of Randoald Sabbe and Jan W. Hespeel, tracing a line from 2008 through 2012, beginning with their pictorial, print and typographical work and ending with their more recent investigations into the production of objects. With elaborate and clearly delineated presentation, each aspect of the duo’s work is thoroughly documented, from nationalist slogans paired with cultural references and posters for various organisations to psychedelic expanses of colour, wayfinding graphics and technical diagrams for construction. Ostensibly simple, the book is, in fact, a font of creativity and imagination.

123/3

A poisonous teen-lit sensation drifts through a new-years-eve party on the brink of 2028. A chance encounter at the party leads to a multi-year road trip through fantasies, fears and disappointments. D is for Desire. Paradise has its price.

I'm moving
I'm coming
Can you hear, what I hear
It's calling you my dear
Out of reach
(Take me to my beach)
I can hear it, calling you
I'm coming not drowning
Swimming closer to you
—All Saints, Pure Shores

For over 3 decades, John Shahidi has been dispensing an eclectic mix of printed matter from his unassuming storefront in West Philadelphia.

Stocking publications of every topic and persuasion, Avril 50 is an unexpected delight to those who happen upon it, and for others it’s a regular destination to find the printed matter they can’t find elsewhere.

Announced to his followers via Avril 50’s Facebook page, Shahidi’s inventories read like strange run-on poems, their nonsensical syntaxes recalling Dadaist techniques employed to “[free] the unconscious from the domination of reason and tradition.”

The following content was posted by Avril 50 between 2014 and 2016.
