About 10 years ago, in 2008, we opened do you read me?! as a space fully dedicated to printed matter. Think of your favourite bookstore, with a well curated assortment of books and some magazines and newspapers on the side, but turned upside down. That’s about it. Fashion, photography and art, architecture, interior and design, illustration, graphic design and typography, cultural matters and society. We (almost) have it all!

I Fuck With Turrell

I Fuck With Turrell

Ne travaillez jamais (EN)
In 2011 the BBB Vocational School in Baden initiated an art department dedicated for students who are training to become polymechanics, computer scientists, electronics technicians, chefs or hairdressers. The purpose is to allow them to experiment with new aesthetic opportunities through engaging with artists and the arts´scene. Serving as a visual intervention to demonstrate the importance of arts no matter what our professional priorities are, stimulating sensitivity to the various ways art infiltrates our lives, from advertisements, to extravagant performances, technology design, fashion and video games, this little, resiliently build book is also the documentation of the first phase of the BBB art department project.

Power Mask

Power Mask

The Power of Masks - Walter van Beirendonck
In her book ‘Aveux Non Avenus, 1930, transgender artist Claude Cahun famously said ‘under this mask, another mask. I will never finish removing all these faces.’ Hers, are the deliberately shaped fragments of an identity, that of the writer, the artist and the transgender. But so are we all like Cahun striving on the power of our masks? How many of these one can, and needs to wear? And do masks hide or reveal us? In the Power of the Mask, Belgian designer Walter van Beirendonck makes a generous exposure to an avalanche of masks, beautifully pointing at their meanings and purposes throughout different cultures. Whether we like to wear masks for ritualistic, fetishistic or theatrical reasons, Beirendonck shows us that there are more to the mask than simply, hiding games. Buy
The Future Starts Here

The Future Starts Here

How would the future possibly look like? Especially in a world where things seem to be heading somewhere where design is playing a very important role in shaping such future! Touching upon issues like DNA analysis, artificial intelligence, synthetic biology and space exploration, The Future Starts Here explores cutting edge scientific research and innovative pursuits, taking them from the laboratories and the studios to the attention of the general public. This includes research which has an impact on the Self, the Public, the Planet and the Afterlife. In comparison to the first issue released by V&A (this book’s publisher) dating back to 1852 and which sought to make sense of the Industrial Revolution, the current issue presents technologies and products in order to make sense of the nascent digital revolution.

Apartamento Cookbook Launch and Signing

Apartamento Cookbook Launch and Signing

Friday, November 9, at 7 pm
Apartamento Magazine and do you read me?!, together with German artist Stefan Marx, warmly invite you to join us in celebrating the release of Apartamento’s latest cookbook on Friday, November 9, at 7 pm. Since 2016, Apartamento has invited the world’s best chefs, food lovers, and culinary taste makers to contribute to a series of annual cookbooks. Each edition is based around a specific theme, and this year the book provides a fresh take on a global staple: the humble grain of rice. Stefan Marx has accompanied each of the 16 recipes with his weirdly adorable drawings. Come around, hang out and grab your signed copy by artist Stefan Marx. Apartamento will be donating 20% of all profits made from sales of the book to a local charity in Barcelona, so the evening will also be in support of a good cause. We look forward to seeing you there! Buy
