Ausbruch & Rausch: Frauen

Ausbruch & Rausch

Frauen, Kunst, Punk 1975-1980
The questioning of gender roles, the creation of completely new self-concepts, punk music, feminist performances, theatrical installations, a cabinet of intimacy, rebellion, New Wave - a "creative-feminist" collective of 35 professional and amateur artists challenged Swiss society and the cultural establishment in Zurich during the turbulent 1970s and 1980s. This book examines the powerful cultural revolt that did not want to be interpreted but experienced. Buy
Sculptures - Oda Jaune


Oda Jaune
Within the large format canvas of Bulgarian artist Oda Jaune nude body parts tumble around without any gravity, immersed in mystical light. Lately, the widow of German painter Jörg Immendorff got her hands around a different medium: porcelain sculptures. Her raw, organic torsos are brought into remote and yet, highly tangible constellations presented next to the softness of a female body, often spotlighted by a single light. The artist book Sculptures starts and ends with Jaune – French for yellow and the favorite color of Immendorff. Buy
Revue Faire special issue - Artists Posters

Revue Faire

Special issue: Artists Posters
After a visit at the artist poster exhibition Honey, I rearranged the collection from the Lempert Collection, Thierry Chancogne and Jérôme Dupeyrat kept on wondering: Why Graphic Design and art appear for most people still as apples and oranges? Art posters, artists posters, posters made by artist, posters made from artists...In four acts – before somebody is catching a train, at the water edge, during another follow up and after the plane has landed – Revue Faire's special issue takes you on a delightful voyage through the last 50 years of art – and of course, Graphic Design.
Onomatopee #151: The Trouble with Value

Onomatopee #151

The Trouble with Value
One of the most difficult questions in the art world. What makes a work of art valuable? From spreadability, meaning the frequency a piece circulates as image or text, to the creation of importance through affect and experience, to laziness being the only true art, to auctioning single words of a story - The Trouble with Value investigates how an artwork gains value in times when art is not necessarily rare or singular and the artist as master craftsman seems to be an outdated notion.

Ettore Sottsass and the Social Factory

Ettore Sottsass and the Social Factory

Ettore Sottsass monumental yet playful furniture challenged the very way we live with objects. Expressive forms, vivid colors, playful patterns, radical shapes - his approach of intersecting design with art and concepts was visionary and is still to this day. Interested in pushing the potential of architecture and design, a lot of works of this imaginist stayed at a prototype level while he already moved on to the next idea. This catalogue gives a deep inside to the conceptual mind of the man behind the infamous Memphis movement.⁠⠀ Buy
Kein falsches Wort jetzt: Gespräche - Christoph Schlingensief

Nur kein falsches Wort jetzt!

Christoph Schlingensief
Gerade jetzt, wo die Welt einer Reality Freak Show gleicht, ist wohl eine der berechtigtsten Fragen, die einem in den Sinn kommen kann: Herr Schlingensief, sind Sie hier irgendwo? Für viele galt er lange Zeit als ewiger Provokateur, der sich einen Spaß daraus machte, anderen ans Bein zu pinkeln. Zu laut, zu makaber, zu respektlos seien seine Filme, Kunstaktionen oder Theaterinszenierungen. Adolf Hitler neben Helmut Kohl, Sozialhilfeempfängern und Asylanten? Unbedingt! Schweigen können schließlich die anderen. Und das recht gut. Bei Filmen wie Menu Total, Die 120 Jahre von Bottrop oder Das deutsche Kettensägenmassaker war es nicht unüblich, dass der Großteil des Publikum – empört bis verstört – den Kinosaal verließ, während Schlingensief noch am Tonregler rumhantierte. Die Devise: Laut kann es nie genug sein! Seine Kunst, eine auf Dauer gestellte gesellschaftliche Versuchsanordnung, getrieben von Angst und Zweifel. In welcher Reihenfolge bleibt uns überlassen. Provozieren ja, aber eigentlich nur sich selbst. Allein deshalb wird dem vor 10 Jahren verstorbenen Apothekersohn der Ruf des deutschen enfant terrible bei Weitem nicht gerecht. Das beweisen, Wort für Wort, die wunderbaren Interviews, die seine langjährige Weggefährtin und Ehefrau Aino Laberenz nun zusammengestellt hat. Sibylle Berg, Benjamin von Stuckrad-Barre oder auch Alexander Kluge und immer wieder Schlingensief. Das hilft! Auch auf die Frage, wie diese Welt noch zu retten sei, hatte er schon damals eine Antwort:  Ch. S.: Es gibt da so eine komische Sekte, die sagt, wenn 6000 Menschen auf Knien durch die Gegend hüpfen, wird die Welt gerettet. Ich würde mitmachen, wenn dadurch wirklich die Welt gerettet wird. Wie würde diese Welt denn aussehen?  Ch. S.: Alle Leute stellen erstmal diese Frage. Ich würde es einfach probieren und dann gucken, was passiert. Vielleicht gibt's dann den Kaffee umsonst. (aus dem Interview mit Gerd Diez und Anke Dürr in: Spiegel, Kultur Extra 11) Buy
Mirage # 5 2020

Mirage # 5 2020

Voyage Lumière
While temperatures dropping and leaves already start to fall, we got gifted with a printed never ending summer! After years Mirage Magazine is back with a fifth issue and we could not be more excited!⁠ There is something about the hedonistic lifestyle of the 60s and 70s: The French Riviera, Brigitte Bardot, Gunter Sachs, a seemingly never-ending fun, unfussy, intellectual but easy, moonlight baths, parties, naps in the hammock, artists, musicians, driving a classic car along the coastline, sailing, dancing on the terrace, reading by the pool - and everything in front of a backdrop of modernist architecture and eclectic interiors. ⁠Mirage Magazine, the brain child of Henrik Purienne, mixes nostalgic pictures from this wild era and contemporary photoshoots of beautiful woman with the same easiness into a bohemian futurism of glistening skin.⁠ Btw we still have some of the mirage books Jamais Vu left.⁠⠀ Buy
Honey Fingers - Beehives


Honey Fingers
When would be a better time to think about what beehives look like in other countries than while enjoying your Sunday roll with honey. Anyway, if you thought hives were these wooden boxes all over the world, you couldn't be more wrong. There are small houses with straw roofs, fully carved wooden soldiers with open mouths as entrances, vertical clay hives and baskets hanging in trees. And all this so that you can enjoy your bread with honey. And butter. Buy
(K)ein Idyll Das Einfamilienhaus - Stefan Hartmann

(K)ein Idyll Das Einfamilienhaus

Stefan Hartmann
Das Einfamilienhaus - Eine Wohnform in der Sackgasse.⁠ Das Buch hinter diesem wunderbaren Titel schaut genauer auf das größte Glück des deutschen Mittelstandes. Denn obwohl das Einfamilienhaus ein soziologisch hochinteressantes Thema ist, gibt es kaum Literatur zum architektonischen Bastard, dessen Vater das proletarische Siedlungshaus und Mutter die bürgerliche Villa ist, wie Benedikt Loderer scharf analysierte.

Some trips are too short for bad meals!⁠ From a Ceviche recipe for exciting summer nights that leave you no time to cook to a romantic roasted pig's head dinner for the non faint-at-heart couples to a dish that feeds the desire for the smell of salt on your skin even when the sea is far away - 11 chefs from iconic restaurants let you into their secrets, each sharing one recipe so you can travel without leaving home. For what better way to teleport to a place than through smells and tastes. Buy
The Plague - Albert Camus

The Plague

Albert Camus
The townspeople of Oran are in the grip of a deadly plague, which condemns its victims to a swift and horrifying death.⁠ Fear, isolation and claustrophobia follow as they are forced into quarantine. Each person responds in their own way to the lethal disease: some resign themselves to fate, some seek blame, and a few, like Dr Rieux, resist the terror.⁠ Sounds familiar? It is no surprise that The Plague by Albert Camus got a "second wave" in Covid-19 times. However the deadly plague in this story is an allegory of France’s suffering under the Nazi occupation. But with the uprising of fascist voices all over the world also this aspect of the novel from 1947 couldn't be more current. Unfortunately for this kind of plague we will be waiting long for a vaccine.⁠ Buy
The End Of Everything - Katie Mack

The End of Everything

Katie Mack
We know the universe had a beginning. But what happens at the end of the story? Our universe could collapse in upon itself, or rip itself apart, or even – in the next five minutes – succumb to an inescapable expanding bubble of doom. With lively wit and humor, astrophysicist Katie Mack takes us on a mind-bending tour through each of the cosmos’ possible finales: the Big Crunch, Heat Death, Vacuum Decay, the Big Rip and the Bounce.⁠ This captivating story of cosmic escapism examines a mesmerizing yet unfamiliar physics landscape while sharing the excitement a leading astrophysicist feels when thinking about the universe and our place in it. Amid stellar explosions and bouncing universes, Mack shows that even though we puny humans have no chance of changing how it all ends, we can at least begin to understand it. The End of Everything (astrophysically speaking) is a wildly fun, surprisingly upbeat ride to the farthest reaches of all that we know.⁠ Buy
