Just in case you don’t know him, Rosa von Praunheim (he took the artistic name of the pink triangle that homosexuals had to wear in Nazi concentration camps) is a prolific German film director and gay rights activist, became a cult figure in the early 70s. He was one of the initiators of the homosexual rights movement in Germany and an early advocate of AIDS awareness. A Queer Cinema and films focusing on LGBT+ issues pioneer, but he has been a controversial figure even within and out the gay community too.

And this is the book about his film ‘Death magazine: or how to be a flowerpot’. A film that was accompanied by a major scandal because the productor didn’t want the audience to see it. The film and the book are a documentary about “Death” magazine, founded by “Screw” Magazine founder and publisher Al Goldstein, and its eventual failure. Images about death, the tabooed part of life, like to sex, because we try to ignore both. The book shows living death as an important part of our life.

The photobook ‘Gibt es Sex nach dem Tode?’ Rosa brings death to life: trivial, banal, disrespectful, undignified, serious, sexy, happy and punk. From different supports we can meet face-to-face with the dead and all the clichés of the television and newspeper feature are gathered: interviews, statements, archive material, reportage with accidental deaths, mountains of corps from the concentration camp, executions, impaled heads, traffic fatalities…

A raw and different book with a great use of colour in this collage design!

NXS issue #3 Viral Bodies investigates the changing concepts of gender and identity norms in the digital space, and open the discussion to many possible speculations and to their real world implications. Kicking off the issue with a starting piece by Reba Maybury, over 20 fellow contributors explore social conventions, share intimate moments and experiences of pain, love, hate and fear. They delve into authenticity in the non-human sphere, they code accidental bigotry on the internet. Science fiction writer Alan Dean Foster blurs the lines of reality, transmitting what is real and what not in a dystopian society. Political art critic Penny Rafferty unravels the minds of tech giants while artistic researcher Addie Wagenknecht questions the diffusing lines between virtual technology and working bodies in reality.

This book could be an ode to nineties fashion. It includes more than 115 photographies from Juergen Teller earlier and iconic work, featuring candid portraits of Vivienne Westwood, Kate Moss, Patti Smith, PJ Harvey, Chloë Sevigny and Harmony Korine, Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love, Kristen McMenamy and more!

This monograph shows an uniform style of raw emotion that has become his recognizable aesthetic. Teller ‘play’ with spontaneity and his models to unflattering angles, uses a bright and hard flash, and never retouches his photographs, exposing the myth of idealized beauty that fashion images offers.

In addition, an interesting conversation, in interview format, to get closer to his work, his life, as well as his creation process.

NXS #4 Algorithmic Anxiety explores the spectrum of algorithmic authority over our lives (whether perceived or not). The contributors question or reveal the inconspicuous influence of algorithms, in their various forms, on our behavioral patterns, emotions, and self perceptions of our position in the world.

Are algorithms really rational and only virtual? Are they better than we are in drawing up a reflection of ourselves? Can they predict our future selves? The intangibility and unclarity of the effects of algorithms on our lives can lead to the uncanny feeling of a loss of control, a sense of frustration and anxiety. Are we at risk of losing our agency to act and think, of being increasingly controlled and programmed through social credit systems, surveillance, and Big Data rankings? Are we on the path towards digitally structured totalitarianism? Control, as well as influence, over future decisions and actions, are after all the goal of pre-emptive algorithmic systems and forms of government. What does that mean for the conception of the autonomous self?

BORSHCH is a magazine for electronic music on and beyond the dancefloor. Founded in Berlin in 2017, it’s a space to provoke open dialogues and challenge established ideas about making, listening, and dancing to music. Through physical and digital formats, BORSHCH discusses the artistic, social, and political impact of electronic music on contemporary culture in and outside the club settings. The print edition of the magazine is published biannually.

In BORSHCH #5, we enter sweaty basements and concrete cathedrals and explore the culture of darkness born out of protest. In unsettling environments, we embrace the shadows and challenge our senses with obscure electronic music. When do you feel comfortable with your discomfort? What happens when the lights go off, and the only source of illumination you’re left with is blurry haze or an abrupt stroboscopic pulse? Conversation with Deena Abdelwahed, Lucrecia Dalt, and Alessandro Adriani question the ambiguity of ‘dark’ sound and psychological impact of unpolished music. Artist portraits of Animistic Beliefs, Rrose, Klein, Ziúr deconstruct the dark areas where sins, injustice, and disquiet are as human and real as pleasures and joy. This issue of Borshch considers entering the dark as an act of coming home, to the cave where the primary source of life is hidden.

TAMBOURINE is an online platform established for the promotion and distribution of the independent magazine scene. Its aim is to decipher the role of printed matter in contemporary culture, as well as provide its readers with the latest magazine releases, connecting the digital community with the highest quality printed matter goods.

NXS#5 Virtual Vertigo examines the challenges of the digital extension of reality and its shadowy underbelly for the self.

Daily digitally mediated interactions have made human perception more and more relative. Engaging with your friend’s avatar lookalike, FaceTime’s video chat applying its attention correction function, or talking on the phone with eerily human sounding virtual assistants literally make our senses deceive us.

Virtual Vertigo investigates questions such as: what emotional effects might a computer-communicated reality precipitate? How is the user’s behavior influenced after returning to the physical world from those layers of lifelike experience? Which ethical pillars should be kept high? And: are we able to restore our understanding of the structure of reality in a new form of find ways to resist manipulation?

As an excerpt as well as a continuation of her show “No habrá servicio los domingos ni en el cumpleaños de la Reina Victoria” at the Academy of Media Art Cologne (2016), Nieves de la Fuente Gutiérrez collages landscape photography, mars rover selfies and screenshots of game engine generated images, blurring the distinctions of their physical and digital origins, addressing the materiality of virtuality. Superimposed by text fragments on the anthropology of precious metals and the ethics of terraforming mars, fictional and nonfictional merge into a state of immediate fuzziness, questioning perceptions as well as the possibilities to communicate within contemporary imagery and content.

Nieves de la Fuente Gutiérrez, born 1988, lives and works in Cologne and Madrid.
