The Movement of Clouds around Mount Fuji – Photographed and Filmed by Masanao Abe
Text in Englisch
56,00 €

The Japanese physicist Masanao Abe built in the 1920s an observatory with a view of Mount Fuji for his study of air currents around the famous volcano. Over the course of fifteen years, he recorded the clouds that surrounded the mountain with film and photo. His scientific research fit unintentionally into a long iconographic tradition: the mountain and the clouds. The ever changing sky and the flat landscape surrounding Mt. Fuji leave the viewer full of fascination and lifts him up into the air.

The untouched archive was re-discovered in a garden shed by Helmut Völter due to his research on his book “Cloud Studies”.

With the expansion of the internet everything is now curated and everyone is a curator – curated playlists, curated outfits, curated menus, curated digital content… Once reserved for the arts, it became fashionable for bloggers, stylists, agencies, store owners to give themselves this lofty title. Through overuse and misuse its meaning became somewhat hazy and it seems that any activity that involves compiling and selecting can cary the caption “curated”.
It gets harder than ever to understand what it is a curator actually does. This book gives an insight into the practice of contemporary curating (in the arts of course) through interviews with different curators.

Unusual encounters with food really describes the subject-matter of this small, odd publication spot on. Through different kinds of contributions this first issue explores the connection of “food and…” – not necessarily a intuitive association – “bathrooms”. Next to a short fiction piece written from the perspective of the last burger Elvis had before his death (allegedly on the toilet) you will find strange illustrations of naked women preparing and consuming dishes, a collection of photos of people literally bathing in food and a recipe for some delicious “estroganoff”. But the centerpiece is without doubt an amazingly off-putting series of pictures taken of an eccentric elderly lady interacting with greens in a bathroom decorated with fruit and vegetables. If you are not hungry for issue #0 when closing this baby you are definitely reading it wrong…!

Tunica Studio is a New York based collaborative, multidisciplinary creative studio. The 5th issue of their always carefully curated and designed magazine might very well be the the culmination of their self-publishing practice so far. Described as a ‘receptacle of international culture‘ with the aim to combine disciplines, each issue is a beautiful piece of print as well as being chock-a-block full of content. Employing a different art director (and a very diverse group of contributors) for each issue, they all become unique gems rather than a repetition of the same aesthetics and content each time. They manage to be a bit offside the usual cultural lifestyle magazines – regularly featuring work by young creative producers just on the verge of popularity.
In this issue you can find not only their own SS16 apparel collection but also a fashion editorial featuring pieces of the young label Hardeman from Amsterdam and an in-depth conversation with Kevin Soh, the founder of ‘Le Roy’ another great genre-busting magazine from L.A. A little creative non-fiction by Swiss painter Laura Indorato leads to Gaspar Noe’s ‘LOVE‘ , a tour through Berlin with Ilja Karilampi, then finally ties in with the BB9 via an Interview with Alexa Karolinski, the artist behind the controversial video-piece ‘Army of Love’, still on view the the KW in Auguststraße.
Tunica is a multifaceted crystal of a magazine – staying coherent and harmonic throughout all its different contents.

Nightswimming –
Discotheques from the 1960s to the Present

Text in Englisch
25,00 €

This is a history of discotheques, told in a subjective, partial way, but always with a clear purpose in mind: the analysis of space. The history of dance clubs is undoubtedly an anthropological as well as architectural phenomenon. The cultural and economic evolution of society progressively transformed the idea of entertainment, and consequently the spaces in which it is formed and shaped. These places have been gradually adjusted to new requests and new fashions, modified and updated, until reaching the contemporary paradox: nowadays discotheques are hardly ever spaces designed by architects; they are rather temporary occupations of spaces dedicated to other functions. From the 1960s until today, through the photographs of Giovanna Silva, a selection of interviews and a collection of critical texts, Nightswimming takes you into the fascinating world of the night.

In Japan, the passing of the year is marked by festivals and rituals that have gone largely unchanged for centuries. Elaborate outfits, made from textiles as well as branches, straw, and other materials plucked from the natural environment, are donned in rural, agricultural, and fishing communities throughout Japan to celebrate seasonal rites of fertility and abundance. Yokainoshima (literally “island of monsters”) explores the extraordinary crop of masks, costumes, and characters that reappear with the return of each season.

The american author Jack London build his own sailboat in 1906, just to find himself on Hawaii where he experienced surfing. “A Royal Sport”, an excerpt of “The Cruise of the Snark”, is considered the first account of a man attempting to surf. He analyses the sea, the waves, the movement and man being one with nature. Part observant, part experience and part philosophical, he leads us into the powerful magic of surfing.”The face of that wave may be only six feet, yet you can slide down it a quarter of a mile, or half a mile, and not reach the bottom.”

Die aktuelle Flüchtlingssituation ist der Ausgangspunkt für die Ausstellung im Deutschen Pavillon auf der 15. Architekturbiennale 2016 in Venedig. Nicht nur der Status quo überfüllter Erstaufnahmeeinrichtungen oder notwendige Ad-hoc-Planungen für neue Unterkünfte sind das Thema des Pavillons. Was passiert danach, damit aus den Neuankömmlingen, die legal in Deutschland bleiben, Einwanderer werden, die sich in die deutschen Gesellschaft integrieren? Das Buch Arrival City des kanadischen Journalisten Doug Saunders hält dazu einige überraschende Antworten parat, sodass Saunders als Berater in das Team des Deutschen Pavillons aufgenommen wurde. Seine anhand von Recherchen in über 20 Städten auf 5 Kontinenten entwickelten Forderungen lassen sich auch auf die Situation in Deutschland übertragen. Einige von Saunders´ Thesen sind konsensfähig, andere provozieren.

Edmund de Waal is a potter. Edmund de Waal is an artist. Edmund de Waal is a writer. Whether he sculpts with words or with clay, what Edmund de Waal works with are concepts, ideas, and desires. In a body of work that is at odds with our times and yet oddly successful, his writings and objects overlap and integrate each other in an attempt to understand and transcend our complex relationship with objects and our surroundings. In an interview with mono.kultur structured like an A-Z of notes and ideas, Edmund de Waal talked about his rules of attachment, the impossibility of repetition, and why ‘doubt’ is the most beautiful word.

Formally published under the name “38 hours”, the “Lost In”-Series got a new edition: Los Angeles. The travel guide, structured by interviews with active and creative locals, give wonderful specific insights to the american city. Packed with tips, that rather seem like ones of good friends than tourist traps, it shows us the glamorous, the trashy, the underground art and the relaxed side of L.A. from modernist villas to a nightclub under a carpark, from seafood to moonlike landscapes in the surrounding national parks.
