Guanli de shou: The managed hand es una publicación que nace del proyecto homónimo expuesto en Barcelona entre septiembre y octubre del 2019. Se trata de una recopilación de textos sobre el cuidado (los cuidados), en concreto sobre el papel fundamental de las mujeres migrantes racializadas en los salones de uñas. Es un experimento en el que se mezclan las imágenes de las obras en sala con imágenes sacadas de internet, letras de canciones, corredoras afroamericanas y vapores tóxicos. Es un cuento contemporáneo sobre la explotación y el trabajo feminizado. Eso sí, teñido de rosa.

“Cada vez más, tendemos a externalizar también los cuidados sin pensar en las personas que los realizan por nosotros y mucho menos reflexionamos acerca de por qué lo hacemos o qué consecuencias puede tener. Simplemente, no nos queda tiempo. Como dice la Zowi “mi dinero es tu ocio” y el tiempo, tenga la forma que tenga, es siempre monetizable por la máquina del turbocapitalismo. Nuestras depresiones, nuestras desviaciones emocionales y nuestro cansancio es también productivo. Alexa, Siri, Cortana, Aura, Irene, Viv, Erika, Alice… hacen lo que sea por ti, están encantadas de ayudarte, nunca se cansan y esperan que tú tampoco lo hagas. Por eso nos hacen las uñas otras mujeres, para que desfallecer en el sofá mientras nos pintamos torpemente los dedos de los pies no pueda ser una opción de posibilidad, para que no nos miremos el cuerpo dentro de un espacio en el que nadie nos mira, para que no empleemos un tiempo monetizable en conocer nuestras propias necesidades y para que no dejemos de comunicarnos con el otro, para que no consigamos hablarnos con cariño a nosotras mismas.”

Based on the cross-over between sound and image, BOOKSCAPES documents a journey across Mexico through a series of short recordings of a blank book made in various locations. The idea of bookscape, formed by the combination of words book and landscape, was born in response to the practice developed by composer Murray Schafer to study the acoustic environment of various contexts (soundscapes). The bookscapes incorporate into the sound recording the visual element of such environment, which is reflected into the blank pages of an open volume.

Through this process, an expanded sense of reading emerges, unsettling the established forms of a practice that usually contemplates the literary and visual material rather than the sonorous component, which in this case becomes a central part of the reading experience, responding to a certain place where the context in which the reader is located provides and creates the narrative.

The blank page is an invitation to listen, rather than to see; it outlines a form of expanded literature where the reader participates as an active listener, in search of a book always open to another time and another space.

→ TAKE PART TO THE CONFINED BOOKSCAPES EDITION

The time and space where we all suddenly found each other is a state of quarantine.The soundscape that surrounds us has changed deeply, and the environment of our lockdown has become our shelter.

For this reason, we would like to create a diverse and collaborative edition for our second volume of BOOKSCAPES, collecting the recordings of what has become the reality of each of you and put it together as a memory of these uncertain times.

If you’d like to be part of it:

Find a sound and visual context of your quarantine that you’d like to share
Take a blank paper or a blank book
Record a one minute length video of it from above
Send it to hola@urbildeditions.com

We will collect the material and weave together the next publication

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!
