Model Christopher Williams

Published by David Zwirner, New York, 2020, staple-bound, 25 pages (b/w ill.), 15 × 23 cm, English

Price: €14 (Temporarily out of stock)

Produced on the occasion of the exhibition Christopher Williams: Footwear (Adapted for Use) at David Zwirner, New York, 2020.

In the 1970s, Christopher Williams studied at the California Institute of the Arts under the first wave of West Coast conceptual artists, including John Baldessari and Douglas Huebler, only to become one of his generation’s leading conceptualists. Williams’s work is a critical investigation of the medium of photography and more broadly the vicissitudes of industrial culture, in particular its structures of representation and classification. Using the process of reproduction as a point of entry, the artist manipulates the conventions of advertising, the superficiality of surface, and ultimately the history of Modernism.

I love it when translation can be found to agree with our weird desires Ulufer Çelik and Alaa Abu Asad

Published by Jan Van Eyck Academy, Maastricht, 2020, unpaginated (b/w ill.), 10.3 × 14.5 cm, Palestinian Arabic, Turkish, English

Price: €30

From the authors: “Do you know what şemsiye means? Do you use the word kırbaç for a whip? For around three years, we have been asking each other about identical words used in both our languages: Turkish and (vernacular) Palestinian Arabic. It is a process that can last for good – as long as our friendship lives. We spend time together uttering words that are held in common and draw them, discovering whether they carry the same meaning, are slightly different, or are false friends.”

Introverse Arrangements Ruth Wolf-Rehfeldt

Published by Unbidden Tongues / Publication Studio, Rotterdam, 2020, 28 pages (b/w ill.), 11 × 18.5 cm, English

Price: €6

Introverse Arrangements is centred on the work of German artist Ruth Wolf-Rehfeldt who, despite only recently garnering attention for her work, is most known for a period of geometric and poetic typewriter drawings produced between the 1970s and 1990 while employed as an administrator for the German Democratic Republic.

Unbidden Tongues is a series edited by Isabelle Sully that focuses on previously produced yet relatively uncirculated work by cultural practitioners busy with questions of civility and civic life—particularly so in relation to language.
