Jan Hoek, fashion designer Duran Lantink and trans sex worker organisation SistaazHood present ‘Sistaaz of the Castle’, published by Art Paper Editions, an ongoing project about the colorful looks and lives of transgender sex workers that roam the streets of Cape Town, South Africa.

Most of the girls are homeless, living under a bridge near Cape Town’s castle. The Sistaaz are eager activists, proud to be trans, proud to be a sex worker, and even prouder of their stunning sense of style. And they want it to be acknowledged.

A series of photographs and a fashion collection based on the girls’ appearance and their ability to turn whatever they find into the most exuberant outfits was created. This has already resulted in a fashion show at Amsterdam Fashion Week (a show in Cape Town in still on the wish list) and a photo exhibition in Foam Amsterdam.

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.

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.

El “Ferviente Manifiesto” de Mercedes Villalba, define el momento actual como tiempos de resistencia. Villalba utiliza el ejemplo de resistencia de la naturaleza como inspiración para nuestra propia resistencia. Observando la fermentación y los hongos, ejemplos de cómo cada superficie “rebosa de vida y tiempo”, admira la negativa de la naturaleza a quedarse quieta.

Los patrones de conducta se perpetúan diluyéndose en diferentes ámbitos sociales. Este ejercicio se fija en como se reproducen los esquemas de comportamiento y praxis en el cristianismo y en el turismo a través de una analogía visual a partir de fotografía de archivo. Planteando una aparente coincidencia, el dialogo que se establece pretende analizar lo intrínseco del vínculo entre estos dos sectores.

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?

Escrito originalmente en inglés para la revista The Plant, esta edición bilingüe incluye una traducción al castellano.

Manifiesto Ferviente es el primer número de la colección A Sketch For The Future, una serie inspirada por Muriel Cooper que trata temas urgentes que pensar hoy para habitar el futuro.

Puedes ver el vídeo completo en español aquí y en inglés aquí.

Mercedes Villalba es una escritora y antropóloga argentina que actualmente reside en California, donde investiga sobre la mercantilización de los paisajes geotermales, ha escrito para revistas como Too Much y Compost. Dicta una clase que incluye un módulo llamado “los hongos son raros”.

This publication is based on a conversation between Félix Navarrete, Sun Chang and Sara Santana López. While talking, the conversation was visualised in a collective thought mapping centered around the question – “What is the essential feeling of being together?”. Without being comprehensive, we hope for this publication to work as a bridge between us three and those who are reading, so that the conversation we held might keep on growing through your interpretation.

////////////////////////////////

Esta publicación está basada en una conversación que mantuvieron Félix Navarrete, Sun Chang y Sara Santana López. Las reflexiones que surgían mientras hablaban se iban plasmando al mismo tiempo en un mapa visual alrededor de la pregunta “¿Cuál es la esencia del sentimiento colectivo? [¿Cuál es el sentir esencial cuando sentimos estar juntos?] Sin ánimo de ser totalmente comprensibles, esperamos al menos que esta publicación sirva como puente entre nosotros tres y aquellos que nos leen y así, aquella conversación que tuvimos pueda seguir creciendo a través de su interpretación.

Travelling es un libro de dibujos sin palabras. Es un recorrido visual a través de 9 historias encadenadas en las que se hace especial énfasis en la representación del lenguaje y de sus sonidos a partir de elementos gráficos. Y donde también la representación del entorno se convierte en materia prima de los mensajes.

Es un libro en el que el tono y el color de la comunicación son más importantes que lo que se dice.

Y es también un experimento de exploración del lenguaje gráfico. Una búsqueda de una escritura y lectura universales.

Esta edición de 300 ejemplares está numerada y firmada y cada ejemplar tiene una portada con un dibujo original y diferente.

Cada uno de los dibujos de las portadas es lo que llamo sonogramas. Cada sonograma encierra una posibilidad. Puede ser un discurso, o  una voz, o un ruido, o una melodía, o una historia. Y cada lectura es un significado nuevo.


Precio: 40 € / España; 50 € Europa, Canada y Estados Unidos (gastos de envío incluídos)

Do:mi:no
Illustration
Anaïs Rallo

Fascinated since childhood by snails, and the way they challenge ideas about sexuality in today’s society, Rosza threw herself into writing, merging two of her biggest interests. Questioning questions, her stylish style shouts and simultaneously whispers the bim bam bam of the streets in the cities of this world, that always runs a little too fast. Thrown around, tossed between bodies and lines in the metro, Rosza is as interested in words as in the absence of them.

Do:mi:no is a co-disciplinary collective that strives to rethink and question the interactions between artistic and musical fields through graphic and musical support, through encounters, collaborative events and crossed glances.

Anaïs is a graphic designer – illustrator with an approach situated at the crossroads of art and design. She plays on double-entendres and on the interpretation of the observer/reader. Her minimalist line, generally black and white, is sometimes punctuated by a few coloured notes, oscillating between a naive-poetic aesthetic and a sometimes disturbing look.”

It’s 2020 and our bodies are still political.

The 21st century still drags on with the same beauty standards of the last century. Those of a young, white, thin, ethereal and heterosexual woman. Beauty, or rather a  woman’s first commercial asset; is a passport to a happy marriage, professional success and social recognition. Both women and men are bombarded with an infinite amount of photoshopped images, which has alienated them and also driven them on a search for ideal beauty. This claustrophobic and impossible standard has only lead us to eternal comparison, frustration and levels of self-hatred. A blinded population starved by its regimes, which becomes terribly tractable and obedient.

Refusing the norm is to choose, as from the vulnerable side as the enthusiastic one, to be incorruptible, faithful to oneself, honest, punk in front of a capitalist system that fathers monstrous children of uniformity and consumerism, all made from the same postcolonial and patriarchal mould.

The artist refused the norm. She cherished and desired bodies of all ages, sizes, genders and colours, with intent to deconstruct beauty standards, beginning a quest for honesty, empowerment, acceptance and self-confidence, while gathering the words of her peers and taking a tender look at them.

These incorruptible bodies are a celebration of the diverse, the unlikely, the ambiguous, the androgynous, the non-obvious and the non-binary.

Les corps incorruptibles is a feminist, queer and anti-racist declaration of love.

Selling bricks and exposing architectural avant-garde es un proyecto de archivo audiovisual desarrollado desde 2018. Hasta la fecha, ha tomado forma de feed de Instagram (@kellycorbusier) y publicación. Selling bricks captura arquitectura de vanguardia y casos de especial relevancia representados en videoclips de música urbana en España.

200 páginas, casi 100 videoclips y planos inéditos de una arquitectura transformada en escenario. Edificios y calles recorridos a ritmo de hi-hats, autotune y perreo como ningún fotógrafo o revista especializada lo ha hecho jamás. Una mirada desplazada que, sin embargo, muestra y descubre detalles o edificios a un público que solo puede contarse con millones de visualizaciones. Un texto de la periodista y crítica musical HJ Darger se encarga de introducirnos en este imaginario de planos contrapicados y frames de Youtube.

This book could have been called Groundhog Day, yet it doesn’t, its title is: Maison Voiture Chien Fleurs.

En 1964, un profesor de ciencias de Zambia llamado Edwuard Makuka decidió entrenar a la primera tripulación africana para viajar a la luna. Su plan era usar un cohete de aluminio para llevar a una mujer, dos gatos y un misionero al espacio. Primero la luna, luego Marte, usando un sistema de catapulta. Fundó la Academia Nacional de Ciencia, Investigación Espacial e Investigación Astronómica de Zambia para comenzar a entrenar a sus Afronauts en su sede ubicada a solo 20 millas de Lusaka.

Querido Amarelo: (Dear Yellow:) arises from the correspondence between Joseph Hooker and T. N. Mukharji, which describes the origin and the method used in the production of a substance know as piuri. Not only does it integrate some of the material that the artist was researching and compiling on this subject during the last two years, but also objects and photographs of his personal archive. The ensemble is organized by analogies based on formal, chromatic or conceptual relations. It seeks to build an atlas where images from different times and origins coexist, allowing both synchronic and diachronic readings.

Viaje iniciático que descubre la libertad o la desilusión. Huída imposible de la mente creadora enfrentándose a los límites del sistema.

Entrevista de Kike Infame a J.F. Vaquero en 13 millones de naves

«Persecución es tan sorprendente como inclasificable. Un objeto imposible que nace de pensamientos sincopados, de extractos de ideas, de fragmentos de obras…, componiendo una huída hacia delante de inesperada coherencia. Único.» Álvaro Pons en Twitter

«Menuda sorpresa ha sido PERSECUCIÓN, de J. F. Vaquero Mata, un libro poético sobre urbes deshabitadas y espacios naturales que se vuelven abstractos. No he podido evitar relacionarlo con la situación que vivimos.» Gerardo Vilches en Twitter

Me parece muy sugestivo tu propósito de buscar en la abundancia de la casa Cerralbo los errores más interesantes, las incongruencias, lo ausente, precisamente lo que falta. Ese interés lo asocio a un vago y antiguo deseo tuyo de desaparecer. Deseo paradójicamente asociado a tu hiper-presencia: cuanto más desapareces, más estás. El anhelo de la desaparición era una forma tuya de estar, de super-estar… de superstar.

Si en lugar de ir a París, finalmente, al estilo de Herzog, vas caminando al Cerralbo a ver las obras de Santomá, yo te acompañaré, tenlo por seguro. A ti te cae a la vuelta de la esquina. Y a mí más lejos, pero desde mi poblado, puedo llegar a caballo, buscando el ritmo del Jinete de Moreau.

Guillermo Santomà is an artist based in Barcelona. In a few words, he could be described as being interested in how a space is affected by the production of elements vaguely similar to furniture as well as by chromatic interventions. It seems that the force that motivates his interest in the house of the marquis is driven by the question: how does the social space of a reactionary mind look? The question is a sensitive one because we tend to ascribe the practice of art to liberal values, even though there are plenty of historical examples of artists who by no means share such principles. Yet Santomà’s intervention adds another twist: the artist is not only interested in how politics shapes character and how character shapes taste, but also how, then, taste shapes the body. Do ultra-conservatives sit in chairs similar to the liberals’?

I read his insistence on placing his work there as act to study the nature of transformation, of the relation between human agency and power, as well as nature (present in all the materials) and technology (as in all of us in relation to the space and its objects). The different works he decided to introduce in the palace act as the containers of the main problem the house and its past poses to us and our time: the importance of the simultaneous representation of existing and non-existing phenomena. How can art or an artwork sustain a double vision between the tangible and the intangible?

Does anybody know if the toilets at the palace of Cerralbo are gender neutral?

 

Un conjunto de capas y capas de literatura oblicuas y entrelazadas a cargo de Chus Martínez, Ignacio Vidal-Folch, Enrique Vila-Matas así como del propio Guillermo Santomà. Todo ello acompañado de las fotografías de José Hevia y Rafa Castells que documentaron la intervención que tuvo lugar durante 2019 en el Museo Cerralbo de Madrid producida por Side Gallery y Etage Projects.

🇬🇧 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.

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.

the way you look at yourself in a store window. a small dish by night. how do you steady a table? not saying “slow fuck” or “strong loving” but this doesn’t mean you feel things less than the others do. any decision is an aesthetic act and that’s this book’s subject. photographs, short stories, tags and annotations by @_VRDT_ . living and not trying to make everything look like something.

Javi era yonki, y también una persona amable y delicada. Le conocí hace más de 20 años, al inicio de mi trayectoria como fotógrafo. Generosamente me dejó fotografiarle un día, en un acto íntimo en el que su fragilidad quedaba al descubierto para el resto.

Hace unos meses me topé de nuevo con estas imágenes, y sentí que debía hacer una publicación con ellas; pero ahora mi interés ya no reside tanto en la acción que representan las fotografías, sino en la morfología de los volúmenes y los juegos de luces que las habitan.

Ojalá que Javi disfrute de este pequeño recuerdo, allá donde esté.

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
