As part of Speelplaats, a parallel program of Werkplaats Typografie, participants challenged what was being offered in the school’s curriculum by introducing improvements or suggesting alternatives. Reader, aantekeningen exemplaar brings together these contributions made to the Speelplaats program alongside other like-minded initiatives by participants, guests and tutors in the shape of examples as well as reference texts.

Texts Elizabeth Newman

Published by Discipline, Melbourne, 2019, 192 pages, 10.8 × 17.6 cm, English

Price: €9

Elizabeth Newman is best known as a visual artist whose practice encompasses a variety of media including painting, drawing, sculpture, and installation. Writing, too, is central to her art. As indicated by the twenty-five or so texts compiled in this book, all dating from the last fifteen years, Newman’s literary output extends beyond her studio practice. Many of these texts are about artworks and exhibitions—her own as well as those of other local artists: they serve a critical rather than an aesthetic function. As such, these writings offer valuable insight into Newman’s artistic intentions and motivations, and her commentaries on the art of her peers constitute a compelling partial survey of art produced in Melbourne over the last decade and a half.

Onion Walk and News Animation (Rehearsal) Simone Forti

Published by ReadingRoom, Melbourne, 2018, two sided card (b/w ill.), 14.8 × 21 cm, English

Price: €4

Produced on the occasion of Onion Walk and News Animation (Rehearsal), 24 January–17 February, 2018 at ReadingRoom, Melbourne.

Simone Forti is a dancer, artist, writer based in Los Angeles. She came of age artistically in the 1960s, a time of rich dialog between poets, musicians, dancers and visual artists. Her early Dance Constructions were influential to the reinventing of dance in New York that happened in the 60s and 70s. Forti has collaborated extensively with musicians Peter Van Riper and Charlemagne Palestine, basing her dancing on studies of animals’ movements and on the dynamics of circling.
