Superstructures (Notes On Experimental Jetset / Volume 2) Experimental Jetset

Published by Roma Publications, Amsterdam, 2021, 424 pages (colour & b/w ill.), 11 × 18 cm, English

Price: €24

Experimental Jetset’s second volume in its self-reflective series is an inquiry into the role of the city as an infrastructure for language and vice versa, seen through the lens of four significant movements: Constructivism, Situationist International, Provo, and Post-Punk. Emerging from a research project and exhibition by the design studio, the book features extensive footnotes by 20 guest authors, including Linda van Deursen, Owen Hatherley, Adam Pendleton, Simon Reynolds, Lori Waxman, Mimi Zeiger, and others. An added bonus: it comes with a 26-page zine, zooming in on the design typology of the original exhibition.

Price: €50

Zeichnungen is an artist book with a compilation of drawings – or rather, ‘sketches of drawings’ by Marc Nagtzaam. He combined his material by printing it in different layers on a Riso duplicator at the Charles Nypels Lab in Maastricht. The result is a careful composition of previously unpublished drawings that became a new work in itself. Printed in a limited edition of 200 copies, numbered and signed.

In this book, recent work by Marc Nagtzaam is shown together with installation views and some of his older drawings. As a result, the previous works can be viewed from the perspective of the new, and vice versa. Nagtzaam sees exhibitions and books as single works. The same compositional approach used when making the drawings is also reflected in the structure of this book. In this manner, Nagtzaam reveals the link between the hard-edge abstraction of the drawings, which can be read as architectural plans, and his spatial installations in which they function as elements in a larger composition, suggestive of an obscure organising principle. Designed by Marc Nagtzaam in collaboration with Roger Willems.
