Walter Benjamin – On Photography

Walter Benjamin – On Photography
edited and translated by Esther Leslie
Text in English
15,00 Euro

‘On Photography’ – in times of digital media, HD cameras or virtual reality we might seem to have enough material to read ‘on photography’ in contemporary literature. Walter Benjamin, German philosopher and critic of the 1920s was writing about photography as it slowly became commonplace – offering a fascinating critique as well as an uncompromising analysis of the new emerging visual culture. His writings have become not only an important source for contemporary aesthetics – they are a timely example of critical and engaging writing on media and culture overall. Edited by Esther Leslie (London), Walter Benjamin: On Photography is the collection of Benjamin’s work on the subject. This small book includes writings, which have never been published before or have been translated here for the first time. The small publication comes with an introduction into Benjamin’s work on photography by the editor herself, as well as 31 illustrations – some of which are the particular images Benjamin had been writing about. On Photography is a book about commercial studio photography, Germaine Krull and Eugène Atget, about postcards and shop windows, Grandville and Kafka ; for we “may know more of what those curling bits of paper are, now our image worlds are digitized.”

Facing Value – Radical Perspectives from the Arts

Facing Value – Radical Perspectives from the Arts
Edited by Maaike Lauwaert & Francien van Westrenen
Published by Valiz, Amsterdam
Text in English
€ 28,50

“We know what things cost but have no idea what they are worth.” British historian Tony Judt states in 2011, quoting Oscar Wilde. The equalization of value and economic worth, the measuring of value in quantitive terms of time and money is what Facing Value is set to tackle. Its goal: rethinking the concept of ‘value’ not as maximization, growth and financial benefit, but rather as plural values like love, care, reciprocity and support within our work and daily lives. As a collection of essays, photographs and artistic contributions, this book highlights concrete alternatives to dominant value structures, with contributions by artists, researchers and thinkers such as Julieta Aranda & Anton Vidokle, Franco ‘Bifo’ Berardi, Tony Judt, Bojana Kunst, Marcel Mauss, Jan Ritsema, Jan Verwoert and many more. Edited by Dutch researchers Lauwaert/van Westrenen and published by the young publication house ‘Valiz’ Facing Value is making the first step towards collaborative, meaningful, – valuable – reimagining.

Almost to the day 100 years ago, the strike of factory workers in St Petersburg led to one of the biggest revolutions in history: The Russian Revolution of 1917 marked the end of czardom and eventually led to the formation of the UdSSR five years later. Tracing urban structures, bus stops in particular CHRISTOPHER HERWIG draws a picture of the urban physiognomy of sowjet Russia – while FLANEUR’s last issue walks down Moscow’s Boulevard Ring. The ‘fragments of a street’ uncovers the multiple layers, stories and histories of Moscow’s most prominent street structure, visible and invisible. A lot has happened since 1917 and the concept of ‘revolution’ might seem outdated, idealistic or even an empty notion. REVOLUTION. A READER takes a spin on the word, reviving it with new meaning. If we look closer, micro-revolutions happen not only in the streets, but in conversation and our relation to others, everywhere, everyday.

Arthur Lubow: Diane Arbus. Portrait of a Photographer

Arthur Lubow: Diane Arbus. Portrait of a Photographer
Text in English
40,00 Euro

On this day in 1923 one of the most powerful and influential American artists of the 20th century was born: photographer Diane Arbus, known through her portrayal of marginalized people – dwarfs, giants, transgender people. In her work, Arbus would spent weeks, sometimes years to get to know her subjects. The 700 page biography “Diane Arbus. Portrait of a Photographer” by New York Times author Arthur Lubow takes on the same sensitivity and curiosity to one of the most complex and fascinating women artists in 20th century photography. Through interviews with friends and colleagues and previously unknown letters, Lubow traces Arbus’ journey from a successfull New York fashion photographer to the unique and hugely influential artist she is seen as today. But “Portrait of a Photographer” is not only a magnificent biography – it is also an important contribution to sweeping away the persistent clichés surrounding Arbus’ work and life. Lubow’s book portraits Diane Arbus not as a tortured soul or privileged exploiter, but as the complex, genious and contradictory woman and artist she was.

There is a drum solo in the 1969 song “Amen, Brother” by “The Winston’s” and even if you’ve never heard of the band before – you’ve probably heard the drum solo over a hundred times already. With over 2000 samples, it is by far the most sampled track in the history of music – and we couldn’t imagine Hip Hop or Drum’n'Bass without it. The Winston’s themselves never claimed any royalties and never received any compensation for the use of their song – something almost completely unimaginable in our decade of copyright, copyleft, infringement and lawsuits. In our digital age though, copyright becomes a tough decision between oldschool law and digital technology. The Art Culture Magazine ELEPHANT enquires into this gap in their latest issue “Copyright and its Discontents”. Copyright or wrong? With interviews, artist’s essays, collages and photo editorials by and with Ian Davis, David Evans, Joanna L. Creswell, Ruth van Beek, Neo Rauch, Henrik Vibskov and many many more, this 200 page issue is definitely something you might want to copy off, cut and paste and quote regularly. But please make sure to get the real deal; a real, beautifully designed paper magazine, not a poorly scanned pdf.

Jacobin #24
Text in English

“Reason in Revolt” – What started out as a translation error of the marxist anthem “Die Internationale” has since become the paradigm for progressive left theory – and the slogan of the New York based magazine JACOBIN. With democratic and left parties in disaray over the rise of fascism and conservatism, JACOBIN shines a bright (and consistent) light on left and socialist issues in the United States. Their winter issue is called “Journey to the Dark side”, and no, JACOBIN has not given up on their agenda. This issue is rather a journey into the inconvenient and sometimes troubling truths the left has to face in order to make a difference. With essays such as “Being Anti-Trump isn’t enough”, “How Pepe turned brown” or an insight into the failures and shortcomings of the Democratic Party, JACOBIN is presenting valuable reading material for the hard times to come. At the heart of it lies the conviction “We must organize around a positive, forward-looking program for real change – a program that gives people something to fight for, not just something to fight against.”. And if Donald Trump’s America is going to be the new Versailles, JACOBIN will be ready for the revolution.

Marion Kliesch: Ästhetik der Zensur
Text auf Deutsch
14,90 Euro

“Wo wird wem was und wie zu sehen gegeben , oder wo wird wem was und wie unsichtbar gemacht?”
Ästhetik der Zensur ist eine kleine, gelbe Publikation, die sich mit den ästhetischen Auswirkungen und Manifestationen der Zensur auseinandersetzt. Auch in der Gestaltung des Buches schlägt sich die detailverliebte Beschäftigung mit dem Sujét nieder, Teile des Texts scheinen durch verschiedenes Bild- und Textmaterial zum Teil überlagert, erst auf den zweiten Blick wird deutlich, dass der Textfluss darum nicht unterbrochen ist und der Leserin nichts verborgen bleibt. Die verschiedenen Methoden bewusster, professioneller und improvisierter Zensur als Kontrolle über Bilder werden in drei Kapiteln mit vielversprechenden Passagen wie ‚Das mediale Hymen und die Frage nach der Befreiung aus dem phallischen Repräsentationssystem‘ behandelt.
