Lapham’s Quaterly’s Spies issue takes us into the history of espionage from the ancient world to the NSA, from informants to leaked information,from private detectives to mass surveillance, from disguise to tools.

Lapham’s Quarterly beliefs knowledge about the past is important for our understanding of the present. Each issue addresses a topic of current interest and concern – war, religion, money, medicine, nature, crime – and by looking at its history, at the creation of words, concepts and opinions we understand that what we often think of naturally given is actually socially created or what seems to be a new phenomenon roots back thousands of years.

Text in Deutsch & Englisch

What is no man’s land? Who owns battlefields? What about the land surrounding Raqqa? What are the consequences of war, annexation, lost territory, settlement and failed states? And what does it mean for people, for their belonging, identity and pride?
This issue of Granta features stories like “Propagandalands” about an online activist in Ukraine or a photographic reportage of what is left of Kobane after IS attacked the city close to the turkish border in 2014. “If black is the colour of the islamic state, then gray is the colour of destruction.” writes Clair Messud to Lorenzo Meloni’s pictures.

Text in Englisch

E.R.O.S. the biannual journal of Eros Press publishes a wide range of fields under each issue’s theme. VII – The Interior draws together theoretical approaches of the rooms we live in. Essays about the inner sanctum, glimpses through keyholes, empty book dummies and the new interest of the art scene in the domestic interior accompanied by Melanie Bonajo’s photographs of “Furniture Bondage” and drawings of “Modern Interiors” by Nathalie du Pasquier.
The editor’s note leads us into this nearly all-text interior issue:
“Behind theses walls lies the available volume of the world allocated to me. Within it are those possessions I desire to live with. They are mutable. They can be hidden or revealed; sold or exchanged. They are embodied histories as much as they are commodities.(…) I have pored over countless images of other people’s homes, and assumed countless things about them. The world within the world that is the domestic interior is of infinite interest to me.”

Apology is a magazine featuring literature, interviews, essays, reportage, humor, photography and art. In other words pretty much everything.

We all had to wait very long for this issue because, as you can read in the editor’s note, his dog ate his homework. So finally it is here and brings us, amongst others, its main section about nostalgia approached through interviews and conversations, a list of available answers to the question “How are you?”, short stories by Amelia Gray, Stephen Dixon and Sam McPheeters, a reportage about jazz pianist Jutta Hipp, microbial pornography and other vulgarity in conversation with cartoonist Sam Gross and photographs from Ryan McGinley of his friend Dash taking photographs.

Mac Guffin #2 – The Window
Text in Englisch
15,00 €

Mac Guffin features stories about the life of ordinary, anonymously designed things. Each biannual edition takes an object and explores the manifold stories it generates.
It shares this anti-showroom idea with London-based Dirty Furniture, but focuses more on interviews and philosophy.
Issue #2 looks at the window as object, connector, delimiter and showcase. Separated in different sections it features, among others, how British shopkeepers turned sticky brown tape into artistic patterns. The tape was given to everyone by the Air Raids Precaution to avoid broken glas becoming deadly projectiles during air strikes.

Further more we get insights into the pleasure of perfectly clean glas, a short story about fear of windows, a column about the ubiquitous plastic frame and thoughts on tassels, galloons and passementries. And of course the Papa-Mobile, the vitrine like care, which transports the pope through crowds is also not missing in the window issue.

We go to the gallery
Text in Englisch
13,50 €

“We go to the gallery”, set as a parody of the somewhat dusty and stiff Ladybird books from the 60′s, pokes fun at contemporary art, its perception as well as its commonplace analysis.
Mummy, John and Susan go to the gallery, where Mummy comments on the artwork: “There is nothing in the room. John is confused. Susan is confused. Mummy is happy. ‘There is nothing in the room because God is dead,’says Mummy. ‘Oh dear,’says John.”
Artist and comedian Miriam Elia draws in 44 pages a sarcastic approach through the simple pictures and conversations known from the 60′s classic – the willful nihilism of the modern art scene clashes amusingly with the postwar optimism embodied in the jolly Ladybird book learning system.
“We are leaving the gallery now. ‘Did you enjoy the gallery?’ says Mummy. ‘I feel strange,’ says Susan. ‘Me too,’ says John. ‘It is the modern condition,’ says Mummy.”

Text in Englisch

Coming with the subtitle “when design leaves the showroom”, “Dirty Furniture” draws the attention to design objects in their “natural habitat” and in use. The independent biannual design magazine uncovers the relationship between people and the things they live with, instead of showing new design pieces in sterile rooms or staged, sleek studio photography.
“Dirty Furniture” is conceived as a finite series of six, each taking a piece of furniture as its theme. Issue #2 is dedicated to the table – showing it as an instrument and communicator of power, a place where we come together, eat and share conversation and the favorite place of directors to stage sexual deceit.

Black Transparency – The Right to Know in the Age of Mass Surveillance

Text auf Englisch
€ 22,00

There is a fly constantly hitting the window. Though the fly can see right through – it is transparent – it still cannot pass. Metahaven is a collective from Amsterdam, uniting research on information (politics) and design; being sui generis in their intuition for visual syntax. In ‘Black Transparency’ the collective explores “involuntary transparency invoked on nation-states by whistleblowers.“ Cause and effect of the leak – splashed out in format and sources, which could not be more diverse: Ivanhoe tales & mail traffic, information maps & academics (among: dissertation by Gaddafi’s junior), cloud wear – an aesthetic gesture, a willfull statement in de-/re-/post-centralized information flows. MH once said: The aesthetics of totalitarian products are non-offensive and liberal; “apricot“ rather than “orange”, “yoga” rather than “martial arts”, completely smooth, with the actual abstract power that is at work. ‘Black Transparency’ comes as a dime-novel in neon-colors, stitched together with heavy black ink. A perfect thing to accompany your white nights.
