Italo Modern 1 – Architektur in Oberitalien 1946 -1976
Text auf Deutsch
45,00 €

Italo Modern 1 beschäftigt sich mit der norditalienischen Architektur der Nachkriegszeit. 84 ausgewählte Bauten werden chronologisch mit zahlreichen Fotografien und Plänen dokumentiert und durch beschreibende Texte und Biografien der Architekten ergänzt.
Der Architekt Martin Feiersinger analysierte, der Bildhauer Werner Feiersinger näherte sich fotografisch den bauplastischen Qualitäten an. Otto Kapfingers Essay aus 13 ausführlichen „Notizen“ zieht sich als feiner roter Faden durch das Buch und setzt das visuelle Werk in den geschichtlichen Kontext.
Die Fotografien, die die Bauten im heutigen Zustand zeigen, dokumentieren unvoreingenommen skulpturale und radikale Silhouetten, Formen, Materialien und Farben genauso wie gescheiterte Visionen und Verfall. Der spezifische Blick der zwei Brüder veranschaulicht eine Zeit voller Umbrüche, Gegensätze und Strömungen. Künstler, Regisseure, Designer und Architekten setzen eine “lustvolle Verunreinigung und Umwertung der kulturellen Codes” dem aus der industriellen Beschleunigung der Wirtschaftswunderzeit geborenen mittelständischen Konformismus entgegen.

Die Ausstellung
Text in Englisch und Deutsch

Die Ausstellung is not the catalogue of an exhibition but the exhibition itself. Over four weeks the artists installed different artworks just to take them down again after they got documented. During this time it was possible to visit the KIT – Kunst im Tunnel in Düsseldorf but the visitor would find himself rather in the phase of set up, which was only aiming towards its final result – the catalogue, in which the exhibition is finally coming together, represented and reproduced. Die Ausstellung constructs and documents an exhibition that actually never took place and therefore provoking questions about exhibition-making and the differences between the actual exhibition and its recording. “Die Ausstellung is a simulation of an exhibition.”

“The Internet does not exist. Maybe it did exist only a short time ago, but now it only remains as a blur…”
Once seen as a bundle of servers and wires, we became eager to give the internet autonomy – “the internet is destroying real human interaction and relationship”, “the internet knows everything about you”. We talk about it as if it is a person or a place. So, what is it? And does it exist?

An essay by Carolin Höfler about Murkudis “Lab Collections” describes in-depth his usage of material, ornament and form.

Brownbook is a guide to the contemporary Middle East and North Africa focusing on design, travel and other culture. The falafel issue investigates the deep connection of tradition and food.

Next to its main theme with stories about falafel in the Sahara, illegal falafel in Sweden and a falafel drive-in in the 60′s, this issue features an interview with Rym Beydoum, a rising fashion designer in Addis Ababa, reports about the Bahrain Pavilion at the Expo and the largest Kurdish community in Nashville – because “there is nothing like a Kurdish barber”.

Welche drei Dinge würde man auf eine einsame Insel mitnehmen? Diese sattsam bekannte Frage setzt ja irgendwie voraus, dass man überhaupt auf eine einsame Insel möchte – und in diesem Sinne wird sie auch meistens beantwortet. Doch die einsame Insel ist ja mitnichten nur der stressfreie Sehnsuchtsort; sie birgt ja in ihrer Abgeschiedenheit gleichsam das Potential zur Vorhölle: Zum Ort der Verbannung, von dem man nicht fliehen kann, an dem die Zeitläufte vorübergehen, wo einen keiner hört. Deswegen ist das neue Heft voller politisch wichtiger Geschichten über Archipele, die nie vom Kolonialismus befreit wurden oder auf denen es sagenhaft ungemütlich ist. Dabei kommen die schönen Aspekte der Inselwelt aber nicht zu kurz!

The word clog can mean to block through an accumulation of a thick matter so that everything is forced to slow down and this is exactly what Clog Magazine does with their mono-thematic approach of picking one architecturally relevant subject and discussing it through multiple approaches rather than fleetingly giving many objects some attention.
This issues’ subject is the Guggenheim. Alongside conversations with, among others, the current director of the museum and members of the Guggenheim Helsinki jury are visually pleasing yet informative infographics of everything relating to the museum: a Guggenheim family tree, building comparisons between the various Guggenheims and a US as well as international museum comparison chart. Of course architectural drawings by the architect Frank Lloyd Wright aren’t missing as well as numerous photographs of all the Guggenheims.

It is provocative of the present-tense tensions that contribute to the new, embracing doubt as a starting point towards decision-making.” Features include an in depth interview with FKA Twigs alongside a shoot by Juergen Teller in which she dresses up as Willi Ninja, curator and writer Hans Ulrich Obrist in conversation with the co-founder of Instagram and Niklas Maak showing the reader Anti-Villa, a former GDR underwear factory that architect Arno Brandlhuber has transformed “into a thinking model for 21st Century living.”

Lars von Trier arbeitet im Skript zu seinem Film „Nymphomaniac“ mit vielen Verweisen auf unterschiedlichste Quellen, die sich assoziativ mit Themen wie z.B. Sadismus, Faschismus oder Botanik verweben. Der Fotograf Casper Sejersen versucht, die vielen Schichten zu entwirren: Im Zusammenspiel seiner Bilder mit narrativen Elementen der dänischen Kunsthistorikerin Cecilie Høgsbro erschafft er eine Kollektion vorsichtig konstruierter Anspielungen auf die Geschichte der Erotik. Sie fügen sich zu einem privaten Buch des Trosts, einer persönlichen Sammlung, ohne Titel, lediglich mit dem Verweis auf die Protagonistin des Films: „Belongs to Joe“.

For the film script of “Nymphomaniac” director Lars von Trier worked with numerous references from diverse sources such as sadism, fascism or botany and interwove these to create different associative themes. In his book the photographer Casper Sejersen tries to unscramble these copious layers: with his photographs and in collaboration with narrative elements provided by the Danish art historian Cecilie Høgsbro, he manages to create a collection of carefully construed insinuations towards the history of the erotic. Put together the photographs create a private book of solace, a personal collection, untitled with mere reference to the film’s protagonist: “Belongs to Joe”.

„Pop – Kultur & Kritik“ erscheint zweimal im Jahr, jeweils im März und September. Ein fester Autorenstamm, der sich großteils aus Literaturprofessoren und Journalisten zusammensetzt, beschäftigt sich mit der Analyse aktueller Popkultur in den Bereichen Musik und Mode, Politik und Ökonomie, Internet und Fernsehen, Literatur und Kunst. Die teils feulletonistisch, teils essayistisch verfassten Artikel bringen in der sechsten Ausgabe u.a. die Bedeutung und Ausprägung von „Billig-TV“, das abgekartete Zusammenspiel von „Fashion und Celebrities“ und den (Un)Sinn von Ausstellungen zu Popgeschichte und Popokultur zur Sprache. Anspruchsvolle Fragestellungen greifen dabei Tendenzen auf, die im Konsens aktueller Berichterstattung nicht beleuchtet werden und bieten einen Blick über den konventionellen Tellerrand hinaus.

“Pop – Kultur & Kritik” is published twice a year in March and September. A group of regular contributors, mostly made up of literature professors and journalists, concerns itself with the analysis of contemporary pop culture in the areas of music and fashion, politics and economy, internet and television, literature and art. The sixth issue, the partly feuilletonistic, partly essayistic articles deal, among other topics, with the meaning of “trash-TV”, the stitched-up interplay between “Fashion and Celebrities” and the (non)sense of exhibitions on pop history and pop culture. Challenging questions are asked and thus topics that are not talked about in current reporting are brought to light and offer content beyond the conventional.
