No Time to Fly Deborah Hay

Published by CasCo, Utrecht, 2013, 18 pages (colour & b/w ill.), 11.7 × h cm, English

Price: €5

Casco’s issuing of renowned American dancer and choreographer Deborah Hay’s solo dance score No Time to Fly (2010) publicly addresses delay in our lives and work. The experience of delay in our lives and work. The experience of delay indicates the notion of time particular to the contemporary condition of production and communication. It is even more palpable in the practice of publishing. The publication No Time to Fly is motivated by the delayed Casco publication the Grand Domestic Revolution Handbook. Hay’s score prompts one to rethink how to see, respond, behave, and act, especially with respect to our habitual works, sense of disjointed time, and disturbed perception.

With texts by Ruth Buchanan and Ian White

Libraries are generally perceived as storehouses, spaces of stable accumulation and containment. While the architecture may attempt to operate in this stable tone, the material contained within them is often far wilder. Histories, biographies, loose thoughts, detailed notations, bodies, and objects are all temporarily suspended, cataloged, and organized, creating relationships where perhaps previously there was none. An example of where the tension between what is contained in libraries and how it is contained emerges in a highly palpable way in the trajectory of the Staatsbibliothek Berlin. This new artist book by Ruth Buchanan charts three narratives associated with the life of this particular library. The anecdotes become both concrete examples and metaphors through which to interrogate the production, situating, and sharing of meaning. Designed by David Bennewith.

I Can No Longer Drink Tea Paul Elliman

British artist Paul Elliman (born 1961 in London, GB) has consistently engaged with the production and performance of language as a material component of the socially constructed environment. In a world where objects and people are equally subject to the force fields of mass production, Elliman explores the range of human expression as kind of typography.

Published as a contribution to David Bennewith’s exhibition Latent Stare at CasCo, Utrecht, Netherlands, 2012.
