Alexander R. Galloway introduces Spike’s network-themed issue with an essay about the asymmetric nature of networks and the hyper-regulated space of the Internet. Curator and activist Ben Vickers discusses the difference between networks and institutions, new community-based social models, and the London post-Internet scene; and New York–based artist Bjarne Melgaard talks about being an artist who writes, the death drive in homosexual culture, and his contribution to the Whitney Biennial. Boris Groys writes a profile of artist and ZKM director Peter Weibel, and Daniel Baumann analyses the Russian performance group and media phenomenon Pussy Riot. In addition, the issue features articles on the relationships and interconnections within the Italian art world, the paradigmatic anti-gallery American Fine Arts, Co., the Vienna Secession as an artist-run institution, Spike Jonze’s new film Her, and how the website Contemporary Art Daily has supposedly changed our view of art.

The City as a Project
Text auf Englisch
€ 22,50

The city is often depicted as a sort of self-organizing chaos. This collection of essays, edited by Pier Vittorio Aureli, makes the case for the opposite hypothesis: The city is always the result of political intention, often in the form of specific architectural projects. Cities are shaped not only by material forces, but also by cultural and didactic visions. This thesis is substantiated by eight thoroughly researched essays scrutinizing a fascinating line-up of urban conditions across more than two thousands years of history: from the political theology of the Islamic city to the political economy of Renaissance architecture; from the rise of public architecture in 17th-century France to the laissez-faire development of the contemporary Greek city; from the exemplary teachings of Jean-Nicolas-Louis Durand to the collaborative work of Hannes Meyer; and from the plan of the Mesoamerican metropolis to that of the Fordist factory floor. In challenging the split between theory and practice, The City as a Project reveals the powerful ways in which the city arises from the constant interaction between ideas and spatial conditions.With contributions by Pier Vittorio Aureli, Fernando Donis, Hamed Khosravi, Amir Djalali, Maria Shéhérazade Giudici, Christopher C. M. Lee, Francesco Marullo, Bernardina Borra, Platon Issaias.

Text auf Englisch

Seitdem sich Michaël Borremans Ende der 1990er-Jahre der Kunst zuwandte, hat er ein erstaunlich reifes Werk geschaffen, mit dem er international Aufmerksamkeit erregte. Den disparaten Räumen, die er in seinen Gemälden, Zeichnungen, Skulpturen und Filmen entwirft, liegt ein unheimliches Gefühl der Entwurzelung und häufig verstörenden Schönheit zugrunde. In komplex aufeinander abgestimmten Farben und exquisiter Technik ausgeführt, berufen sich seine Werke auf die künstlerische Vorläufer und sind doch fest in der Gegenwart verwurzelt. Der Band präsentiert mit mehr als 100 in nur 14 Jahren entstandenen und teils erstmalig reproduzierten Werken den bisher umfassendsten Überblick über das Œuvre des Künstlers. Neben einem ausführlichen Interview über Arbeitsprozesse, Einflüsse sowie philosophische und kunstkritische Fragen bietet er über 50 höchst individuelle Beiträge von namhaften Schriftstellern, Kuratoren, Regisseuren und Musikern zu ausgewählten Werken von Borremans.

Curated by forward-thinking Dutch fashion designer Iris van Herpen, this edition of the magazine explores the experimental, often surreal, aesthetics that drive her work, from 3D-printed costumes to hyper-futuristic objects that play with new materials, techniques and technologies. She is especially recognised for her interdisciplinary take on the world of fashion today, and pushes her own inspiration beyond those boundaries to encompass disciplines like physics, chemistry, sculpture and architecture. Among the many contributors chosen by Van Herpen to assist in expressing this ethos are Tilda Swinton, Karl Lagerfeld, Benjamin Millepied and Daphne Guinness.

Der Winter ist vorbei. Lang lebe Winter Magazin. Der Schreck des langen Winters 2012/13 saß allen noch tief in den Knochen, als drei Berliner letzten Herbst beschlossen, dem nächsten Winter etwas Schönes zu entlocken. Das Ergebnis ist das Magazin “Winter”, in dem Autoren, Fotografen und Künstler aus aller Welt ihren vielfältigen und oft gegensätzlichen Gefühlen über die dunkle Jahreszeit Ausdruck verleihen. Warum veröffentlicht man im März ein Magazin über den Winter? Weil es nicht für den Winter gemacht, sondern aus dem Winter heraus entstanden ist. “Winter” verwandelt etwas Dunkles und Deprimierendes in etwas Schönes – und wie ein Souvenir erscheint es am letzten Tag des kalendarischen Winters. Der Winter ist die Jahreszeit der Extreme. Eiseskälte kollidiert mit gemütlicher Wärme, Verzweiflung mit Freude, Einsamkeit mit Nähe und Familie.“Winter” ist zwar aus dem Berliner Winter heraus entstanden, doch die Beiträge stammen aus aller Welt. Der britische Autor Warren Ellis trug einen Text zur Elektrizität bei, die deutsche Schriftstellerin Elisabeth Rank schrieb eine Kurzgeschichte über den Wald. Der amerikanisch-nigerianische Schriftsteller Teju Cole führte ein Wintertagebuch. Die Künstlerin Emma Grün verfasste einen Beitrag zur Melancholie. Der Illustrator Luis Mendo zeichnete die Menschen in der verschneitesten Woche, die Tokio in 40 Jahren gesehen hat. Der Brite Hamish Robertson sucht in seiner Wahlheimat Los Angeles nach dem Winterlicht seiner Kindheit.

Jan Verwoert: Cookie!
Text auf Englisch
€ 18,00

Edited by Vivian Sky Rehberg and Marnie Slater.
This new volume brings together a selection of Jan Verwoert’s most recent writings. COOKIE! is a sequel to Verwoert’s Tell Me What You Want, What You Really, Really Want, and third in a series of books published with the Piet Zwart Institute. If we don’t merely reduce art to clever code play in the arenas of representation, how do we speak about what is at stake? In response to this question, Verwoert addresses the forces at the heart of the tragicomedy that making, showing, and critiquing art implicates us in. He honors the basic joys of turning one thing into another, and the miracles of rhythm and rhyme that characterize the residual level of mimetic magic in art. In this key, the unverifiable is practiced daily: bodies are remade, feelings transfigured. As Alina Szapocznikow wrote, the mouth chews and out comes sculpture. Verwoert’s COOKIE! renders visible the endless emotional labor of setting the stage (for others), poses the thorny question of whether there could ever be a labor union for con-artists (like us), and gestures toward an ethics of disappointment to battle false expectations and as a way to come to terms with the fact that, no matter how you look at it, criticism hurts.

This is the first comprehensive survey of the designer’s work. Edited by connoisseur historians Suzanne Demisch and Stephane Danant of Demisch Danant gallery, this 325-page volume traces the innovations and output of Pergay across time, geography, and materials. Having begun in silver, Pergay is most renowned for her use of stainless steel, which she first explored in 1968 with the now-iconic Flying Carpet Daybed and the Ring Chair. That same year, her first full group of stainless steel furniture was exhibited at Galerie Maison Jardin and achieved instant acclaim. Always pursuing an original design canon, Pergay concurrently worked on commissioned projects and custom pieces for many noted figures, from fashion legend Pierre Cardin to the Saudi Royal family. In the late 1980s and through the 1990s, she produced several important commissions in Russia and continued to develop her pathbreaking work in stainless steel, combining it to striking effect with mother of pearl, lacquer, and precious woods.

How Robots Change Architecture

Text auf Englisch

As the connection between data and building materials grows ever closer, with digital information not just informing plans but actually being used to create the material that will construct a building—robots are necessarily playing a large role in architecture. Yet the use of robots in architecture has not been treated comprehensively until now. The Robotic Touch features thirty-three research projects on robots in architecture originating at the Chair for Architecture and Digital Fabrication at ETH Zurich, documenting various methods and concepts relating to the use of robots in architecture. In particular, The Robotic Touch offers the first full analysis of the material and constructive aspects of robot-based building projects—and draws out the implications for architectural design on the growing use of robots. The volume is rounded out by five topical essays on broader aspects of the subject, along with technical data-sheets.
