🇬🇧 Printed on a light-box or on a billboard, taking flight atop a vehicle, hand drawn, painted, as a sticker or a neon sign, letters are everywhere in the public space and their representations are multiple. A group of graphic designers and artists specialize in creating signs that take on the allegorical potential of the alphabetical letter; substituting it with a figurative element, to over-signify the context the letter indicates.

The book presents a collection of 350 letters-images collected in the public space between 2016 and 2019 indexed and classified into 13 themes.

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.”

This project seeks to take a new approach to traditional user manuals based on sampling, a musical production technique that is very common in hip-hop. Sampling (and resampling) is a working process that takes pieces from different elements and combines them to create a unique and new item. This technique extracts these pieces from their natural habitat to de-contextualise them; it chops them up, changes, deforms, serialises and combines them with a view to generating a new message.

We live in a world bloated with data, images, videos, news, messages and constant inputs. We live in a world where collective forms of sharing knowledge generate a massive amount of information that is constantly doing the rounds. And just like hip hop lifts portions of audio to compose, this user manual has been scanned and compiled with these elements that do the rounds, such as photos, articles, chats or illustrations, which redefine or complement the content. The outcome is a sampled manual.

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.

And with every tour comes its accompanying merchandise (even the uncomfortably apocalyptic science-fiction ones). In the hopes of producing something positive from a situation so negative, and of coming together in times that pull us apart, this t-shirt – now available on @everpresshq – was designed in collaboration with Pedro Mata Nogueira 31,00 €.

THE TREE AS AN ANTENNA TO A SPIRITUAL REVOLUTION – Mantraste

“I wanted to pay homage to all the trees for a long time, so I picked sticks in my village, drew the memories of my childhood by sight and crumpled the paper pulp that shaped the fruits of my spirit. How many have found enlightenment through a tree?” 190 × 250 mm 32 pages 2 color risography printing on Fedrigoni Arena Rough 90g paper. 2 color silkscreen cover printed by Telmo Chaparra (Stolen Prints) on Pop Set Fawn 170g paper.

SOLIN SALA RA – Manuel Donada

It is not talking about the origin of this book, because this book, infinite, varied, diverse, always similar and always different, perpetual and changing, has existed from all eternity. Nothing has been discovered, everything has been found. But in the heart of this artifact everything changes, everything is transformed, everything evolves. These pages have not existed at any time or any place, the message itself has an origin and the magic emanating from each of its pages can never be trained. At this point, there is nothing to do. It would be lovely to wait for the revolution of an admirable science. This book is dedicated, in part, to all those punks of sectarian mentality and false morals, those who feed the annihilation of the individual and those who are part of a camouflaged class, who die of fear and grief with the idea of being isolated. To all those who do not violently reject the supporters of an absurd and pestilent elite. To the loose dogs of abstract camaraderie that obstructs the spiritual, individual and cosmic revolution. To the victims of the revolution block, accomplices of permanent repression, duck-faced corpses and wild manners, all obstacles of the universal protest. 245 x 310 mm, 96 pages 978-989-54589-2-9 Stolen Books
