CURA. 28 — The Ultimate Body Issue

CURA. 28

CURA. 28
The Ultimate Body Issue

Our yearlong investigation into the body continues
CURA. 28 is devoted to different artistic experiences and practices—crossing generations, time, space, and media—revolving around the boundaries, powers, forms and interpretations of the body that exist within the present world.

What’s more

Bodies on the cover
A double cover by artists Amalia Ulman and Hannah Levy is presented by texts from Travis Diehl and Kat Herriman. In Ulman’s work the body—her body—is both the protagonist of a relentless re-enactment and a means to question the boundaries between illusion and truth. Levy’s sculptural installations and performances explore the figure and its politics through the objects we surround ourselves with.

Body of Work
Vincent Honoré’s conversation with Lynn Hershman Leeson provides an opportunity to delve into the artist’s multiform production, capable of creating a bridge between the political movements of the ’60s and the most contemporary themes of technology and science. Prem Sahib and Celia Hempton have been invited to reflect visually on their “body of work,” creating links between their own artistic production and the images which shape their personal imaginary: their visual essays are introduced by Huw Lemmey and Kathy Noble.

Political Bodies
Three essays reflect on the body from different perspectives: the dancing body, the loving body, and the collective body. Manuel Segade writes about the practice of voguing and radical performance, analyzing, amongst other examples, Charles Atlas’ major work Butchers’ Vogue and Glenn Ligon’s Condition Report; Fiona Alison Duncan talks about her project Pillow Talk, intended as a platform to discuss sex, gender, and love in our discomforting, novel, and wild time; finally Penny Rafferty interprets a selection of artistic collectives, examining their modes of production and communication tactics.

The Conversations
Anna Gritz enters into a dialogue with Sidsel Meineche Hansen about her ongoing research on sex dolls and robots; Piper Marshall’s 25 questions are this time addressed to Madeline Hollander, who explains the processes and concerns at the heart of her choreographic performances; while Margot Norton retraces with Anna K.E. the pivotal moments of the artist’s production, from her early video works to her most recent installations.

What’s HOT!
The HOT! section is devoted to a series of artists who—using different media and working in a variety of contexts—focus on the body as a subject, a theme, a key to understand the structure and the mechanisms of the surrounding world: Aria Dean is presented by Attilia Fattori Franchini; Louis Fratino by Alex Bennett; Young Joon Kwak by Ceci Moss; Julien Ceccaldi by Whitney Mallett; Stine Deja by Alice Bucknell; Paul Mpagi Sepuya by Nikki Darling; Yu Ji by Todd Von Ammon; D S Chapman by Micol Hebron; Nabuqi by Loïc Le Gall.

You can find CURA. 28 “The Ultimate Body Issue” in the best international bookshops in Italy and abroad, order your copy on CURA. website or find it at Art Basel (June 14–17). Or… stop by BASEMENT ROMA and buy one.

032c Issue #34 — Summer 2018: “The Big Flat Now”

032c Issue #34
Summer 2018: “The Big Flat Now”

We regret to inform you that there is no future. Nor is there a past. music, art, technology, pop culture, and fashion have evaporated as well. There is only one thing left: the big flat now.

For 032c’s Issue 34, we offer 12 theses for consumption and creativity in the infinite present, rendered by Peruvian graphic designer JONATHAN CASTRO. An expert at the multi-disciplinary, rapper TRAVIS SCOTT expounds his love of fans and fatherhood from the driveway of his Texan Lamborghini horse ranch. Gucci’s creative director ALESSANDRO MICHELE explains the origin of his magic mushroom and the meaning of time, while performance artist and WorldWideWitch community creator JOHANNES PAUL RAETHER introduces us to his many selves. Nonagenarian and artist LUCHITA HURTADO, who once had her feet massaged by Marcel Duchamp, looks back on a century of modern art in conversation with HANS ULRICH OBRIST, while London-based art and car collector KENNY SCHACHTER takes us on a tour of his home / art studio / garage. Photographer WOLFGANG TILLMANS sends in personal dispatches from his debut exhibition in Kinshasa, and we visit the COSMIC COMMUNITIES who used outer space and psychedelia as tools for sexual liberation. Elsewhere, Alyx’s MATTHEW WILLIAMS and NIKE test the post-human frontiers of apparel design, documented in an editorial by NICK KNIGHT. Italian supermodel MARIACARLA BOSCONO lives out fetish fantasies, and PETRA COLLINS and PIERRE-ANGE CARLOTTI pledge themselves to one another “Forever.” Anti-heartthrob actor VOLKER BRUCH gets bloody-eyed while considering his transatlantic fame. We speak to RICH THE KID about his perfect day, and hang with BROCKHAMPTON, TREVOR PAGLEN, BRIA VINAITE, and TAKAHIRO MIYASHITA.

ARCH+ 231 — The Property Issue

ARCH+ 231: The Property Issue

ARCH+ 231: The Property Issue

ARCH+ collaborated with Arno Brandlhuber and Olaf Grawert (station+, DARCH, ETH Zürich) to edit the volume “The Property Issue. Ground Control and the Commons.” The issue, which is the outcome of their research on property, aims to help change how we view urban land, and encourage land law reform to return land governance to the local level. Brandlhuber, who is a professor at the Department of Architecture at ETH Zürich, contributed with a series of interviews he conducted for the feature film “The Property Drama.” The film was realized together film director Christopher Roth as part of the “Legislating Architecture” series, which explores the rules and laws of architecture.

“Who owns the land that we are building on?” is a question central to all societies, because space is as vital a resource as air and water. And yet architects seldom explicitly address the question of land ownership. “The Property Issue” establishes a connection between rising land prices and the disintegration of urban communities. Interviews with architects, urban planners, and politicians address the ability of planning, politics, and society to affect change on a political, economic, and spatial level. Many other contributions on politics and economics reveal not only prevailing lines of conflict, but also the potential to redefine policy with the long-term aim of establishing land, and thus the city, as a commons.

Further contributors include Oana Bogdan, Arno Brandlhuber, Anina Brisolla, Dogma/Realism Working Group, Egbert Dransfeld, Silvia Federici, Michaela Friedberg, Renée Gailhoustet, Olaf Grawert, Marisa González, Dolores Hayden, Florian Hertweck, Markus Hesse, Naomi Klein, Dirk Löhr, Christian Schulz, Niklas Maak, Marija Marić, Oksana Mironova, Peter Mörtenböck, Helge Mooshammer, Joseph Nevins, Raquel Rolnik, Christopher Roth, Wolfgang Scheppe, Trebor Scholz, Patrik Schumacher, Manuel Shvartzberg Carrió, Robert Thum, Milica Topalović, Harald Trapp, Douglas Spencer, and Hans-Jochen Vogel.

Frieze — Issue 196

Frieze - Issue 196 Cover

Frieze – Issue 196

“The human race has always clung to notions of borders, be they mental or physical. In recent years, though, welcome cracks are appearing—and that, as the great Leonard Cohen once sang, is how the light gets in.” –Jennifer Higgie

Marking 80 years since the invention of LSD and 200 years since Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, the new issue of frieze is themed around “Altered States” — cultural eruption, artistic experimentation and transformation. Featured artists, writers and designers include Sonia Boyce, Lawrence Abu Hamdan, Lantian Xie, David Lynch, Misheck Masamvu, Nick Mauss and Linda Stark among many others.

Face to Face

“Through the eyes of algorithms, our portraits no longer ‘resemble’ us.” Christy Lange looks at how artists including Adam Broomberg & Oliver Chanarin, Dries Depoorter, Adam Harvey and Trevor Paglen are researching the creative and ethical potential of facial recognition technology.

Lantian Xie: Origin Myths

“Citizenship is only one way of belonging. There are many others.” Dubai-based artist Lantian Xie talks to Amy Sherlock about his work that mobilizes people, objects and symbols to question notions of authenticity.

Also featuring:
A new short story by Roy Scranton, with photography by Matthieu Lavanchy, imagines the disastrous effects of climate change; Jonathan Griffin encounters feminist symbolism and practical magic in Linda Stark’s paintings; Jennifer Higgie interviews Sonia Boyce about her 30-year career, opening up public discourse on gender, race and class; Nick Mauss explores queer histories of dance, as part of our “visual essay” series; and in the face of Zimbabwe’s “hyena politics,” Sean O’Toole reflects on the defiantly expressive paintings of Virginia Chihota, Misheck Masamvu, Gareth Nyandoro, Gresham Tapiwa Nyaude and Portia Zvavahera.

Columns and Reviews

From ketamine to leaky realities, Mark Pilkington discusses the inspiration for Paddy Chayefsky’s hallucinatory novel, Altered States; one year on, Ismail Einashe looks at cultural responses to the Grenfell Tower tragedy; on the eve of the World Cup, Harry Thorne reflects on the relationship between art and football; Michelle Orange discusses Iranian films that challenge the stereotype of movie-making in a repressive state; and designer and building scientist Mae-Ling Jovenes Lokko reveals her influences.

Plus: 29 exhibition reviews from around the world, including reports on Gallery Weekend Berlin and two shows on 20th-century Italian art: Post Zang Tumb Tuuum. Art, Life, Politics: Italia 1918–1943 at Fondazione Prada, Milan, and Dawn of a Nation: From Guttuso to Fontana and Schifano at Palazzo Strozzi, Florence.

Answering our questionnaire is David Lynch, whose television show Twin Peaks: The Return aired last year.

CURA. 27 Issue is out now!

A brand-new yearlong investigation aims to bring us into the sinuous folds of the body: body as a revolutionary field, as a space for antagonism and freedom, as an area of self-definition, questioning new identities, gender, race, and humanity. Body/antibody dichotomy expresses the relation between presence and absence, disclosure and concealment, materiality and virtuality.

Featuring a cover by George Henry Longly, launched for the event of his solo show at Palais de Tokyo in Paris, the curator Adélaïde Blanc investigates the strategies by which Longly questions presentation systems and visual codes; while Milovan Farronato focuses upon the artist’s work on epidermal surfaces, Lucia Pietroiusti initiates a discourse on implosion, collapse, and fall. All texts explore the complexity of Longly’s work, creating an intense dialogue with a series of enigmatic masks, created especially for the occasion.

Starting his new section, Mathieu Copeland talks about anti-bodies within the body of art institutions; in dialogue with Hans Ulrich Obrist, Barbara Hammer explains how the human body can become a space of freedom, action, and disruption; Vincent Honoré speaks with Eleanor Antin about her seminal work, CARVING: A Traditional Sculpture (1972), and her recent CARVING: 45 Years Later (2017); Ellen Blumenstein’s seven exemplary artworks, here accompanying Kate Cooper’s images, reflect upon the body as “an interface in which subject and collectivity meet and the scenario in which the relationship between the two elements is negotiated”; Ben Vickers’ conversation with Kenric McDowell extends their dialogue on the AI and the broader impact and cooperation between human and machine; Marianna Simnett, introduced by Maitreyi Maheshwari, presents a visual essay of bodies and their relation to abjection, horror and monstrosity.

The series of conversations continues with Donna Huanca and Venus Lau, discussing the skin and body as sculpted, painted and performed; Chris Sharp examines the corporeal materiality and flexibility of ektor garcia’s work; Piper Marshall’s 25 questions to Eric N. Mack help us identify the main interests of his research on tactile assemblages; fabrics are also the focus of the young artist and designer, Lou Dallas, interviewed by Fiona Alison Duncan; Manuel Solano is the protagonist of an intimate dialogue with João Mourão and Luís Silva, in which he reveals the profound reasons behind a performative work where body is exposed, transformed, and reimagined.

The new series of portraits introduce four different approaches to themes of racial, sexual, and anatomical identities: Wu Tsang—by Noemi Y. Molitor—Christina Quarles—with Claudia Mattos—Andrea Crespo —with Alise Upitis—and Tabita Rezaire—by Oulimata Gueye.

The HOT! section is devoted to three hot artists: Cooper Jacoby (introduced by Annie Godfrey Larmon), Carly Mark (by Katja Horvat), and Nicholas Cheveldave (by Lennart Wolff).

The first issue of CLUBBING fanzine, guest-edited by Martha Kirszenbaum, is also launched on the occasion of CURA. #27, including Dick Jewell with Jesse McKee, Fleur Breteau’s extract, Samuel Kirszenbaum photos, and an original downloadable mix by Palestinian DJ SAMA. The fanzine is available for the international distribution and subscribers only.

Underscore Vol. 1 – Jessica Walsh

Underscore Vol.: 1 Jessica Walsh

Pre-Order Underscore Vol.: 1 Jessica Walsh

Meet Underscore, our premium, perfect bound quarterly monograph packaged with an extra-special accompanying zine.

After two issues of Not For Print, our thematic quarterly magazine, we wanted to go deeper. It can be hard picking just a few pieces to feature in the magazine from each artist, so we said: “fuck it, let’s make an entire book about a single artist.” The only downside: we would only get to feature one artist. To address this, we selected an additional 9 artists and featured them in an accompanying zine.

Underscore features the work of world-renowned graphic designer Jessica Walsh, of Sagmeister & Walsh, as well as an exclusive interview.

The zine features artists Tizian Baldinger, Beata Szczecinska, Marica Martella, Amber Vittoria, Sky Pape, Mete Yafet, Carson Lynn, Mariano Pagella, and Olga Urbanek.

Issue 33
Winter 2017/18 “Berlin Kidz”

How do you write in an age of anger? By using text as a weapon to deface the establishment.

This is lesson number one of this issue’s dossier BERLIN KIDZ, which follows the anonymous group of graffiti writers, videographers, and train-surfers to the highest points in the German capital. Meanwhile in New Jersey, FRANK OCEAN lives out his exile on Main Street and receives a fresh glow from PETRA COLLINS and ALEX NEEDHAM. In two 032c archeological expeditions, MARIO TESTINO explores the shores of Pompeii, while KATERINA JEBB visits BALTHUS’s Grand Chalet for an editorial posthumously narrated by a conversation between the late painter and DAVID BOWIE. We delve into the psyche (and country home) of artist JORDAN WOLFSON and escape a Parisian hospital with JACKIE NICKERSON. Writer PANKAJ MISHRA explains why embarking on modernity was such a risky project and how we ended up in an “Age of Anger.” In a chilling personal essay, CEO MATHIAS DÖPFNER recounts his travels to the Nazi Death Camps in Poland. DANIEL RICHTER and LUDWIG LUGMEIER perform a séance on Jewish exile, Al Capone bodyguard, and lost modernist JACK BILBO, while PIERRE-ANGE CARLOTTI imagines the death metal cowboys of Botswana in Berlin. We speak with ABRA, BJARKE INGELS, TACO, and JULIANA HUXTABLE, and last but not least, KRIS VAN ASSCHE, who tells us what it means to be an Homme on the occasion of his ten year anniversary as artistic director of Dior.

Also included with the issue are sticker pages featuring designs by AMBUSH, Geoff McFetridge, J.W. Anderson, SSS World Corp, Wes Lang, and Virgil Abloh c/o OFF-WHITE.

In Volume’s 10+ years of existence money became so ingrained in our neoliberal world, that societies have lost sight of almost any other form of value; like fairness, trust, equity, beauty, rest and uselessness. Values that we think need to get back to the surface, but by just going beyond we might loose sight. Powerful and highly interconnected managing systems are ruling that world that yet nobody seems to steer or fully understand. We as cultural agents have to go to the edges of the system we cannot leave, to scratch at some backdoors, that have no door-handle and put some wrenches to work; to dig and excavate, to unfold and rewrap.

The pressing social, political and urban questions of today cannot be dealt with from within the familiar bounds we are comfortable operating, by just one form of knowledge, one discipline, one type of practice, one approach or one cultural background. To get a grip we need to learn: to re-learn, unlearn, experiment, test, research, play.

And that is what Archis/Volume will do the coming years through research, debates, workshops, exhibitions, online publications and (at least) two issues of revamped Volume Magazine per year. The latest issue is redesigned at Irma Boom’s office with ongoing creativity, professionalism and enthusiasm.

Volume #51: Augmented Technology, represents the first step of a long-term research program undertaken by Archis/Volume and its partners. The program responds to the urgency not only to connect or re-connect the world of architecture to the tech community, but also to acknowledge the reality of design as inherently political. In this framework, the issue exposes core elements of the technological reality we live in and makes propositions for the present.

The digital space is inhabited by multiple, synthetic versions of ourselves and other agents, like bots and artificial intelligences interacting on privately owned platforms that acquire an increasingly political dimension—that is where the difference between user and citizen starts blurring. Those platforms represent a new ground of interaction that organizes life also beyond their digital boundaries into the physical world. Therefore, risks and impacts on the digital or the physical reality affect both, generating often unexpected outcomes, raising questions on the resilience of those very systems. More than that, these technologies have become the very tools through which we perceive reality and through which it is narrated to us. What world we want to live in becomes a question of design.

With: Sigrid Johannisse, Charles Landry, Clement Valla, Florence Okoye, Tamar Shafrir, Felix Madrazo, Adrien Ravon, Ben Schouten, Martijn de Waal, Adam van Heerden, Nick Land, Fred F.J. Schoorl, Doma, Victor M. Sanz, Sever, Leonardo Dellanoce, Liam Young, Nicolay Boyadjiev, Benjamin Bratton, Keiichi Matsuda, Stephan Petermann and Sander Pleij

The issue includes: Deconstruction, a 32-page insert produced with the Jaap Bakema Study Centre and designed by Loraine Furter. It investigates the deconstruction and re-use of modernist building components as researched by Rotor.
