Spaces of Uncertainty
- Berlin Revisited
€ 39,95

Edited by Kenny Cupers and Markus Miessen, Spaces of Uncertainty (all texts in german) critically examines the urban development trajectory which Berlin took after the fall of the wall. The contributors in this book demonstrate how the city’s urban transformations since then didn’t effectively succeed in removing the sense of division that long characterized its spatial composition. Photographs taken in 2001 and 2006 show how large deserted areas turned into lively residential neighborhoods and how underground meeting venues became business hubs. In the midst of it all, Berlin still preserves rich pockets for innovative culture having little interest in business or the quiet of residential neighborhoods, hence this book’s call to consider these pulsing reserves in future planning and development.

Suspira #1

Suspira #1
- The Monster Issue
€ 14,-

Suspira, The Monster Issue, is a brand new title about the unsettling freakishness of horror. The things that we don’t get on first sight, the images that are able to suscitate fear in us and make some stomachs turn. Published by Dreadful Press, Suspira observes attitudes toward the peculiar and the macabre and brings it under the spotlight of feminist interpretation. In this issue, it’s the monstrous, or rather, the monstrous as a social construct which undergoes scrutiny. Instead of ceding to public panic and the commonly trapped cultural fears, Suspira embraces the horrific, and challenges the foundations upon which we become weary and repulsed by it.

Real Review #6
€ 12,-

Real Review urges the reader to think what it means to be alive today. Created and edited by Jack Self, this curiously shaped piece is dedicated to the subject Just-in-Time, which is a relevantly recent production-strategy first developed by Toyota in the 1980s. The aim of Just-in-Time is to replace the Fordist Just-in-Case model that built set numbers of cars in the hope that they are eventually sold. Just-in-Time attends to a different logic where production is only executed once orders are placed. Nothing is produced unless there’s a clear need for it. Real Review explores the possibilities of using this specific mode in our relationships to the material world through commentary on the metrics of innovation, robots, racism and artificial hymens —to a level our human species is spared extinction.

Radical Matter is an essential introduction for professionals and students to the latest cutting-edge design ideas which are on their way to shape not just the future of design, but the entire ‘design-make-consume’ chain.

It calls attention to ten ‘big ideas’ coping with materials including extreme waste material like shit and dust, through fully illustrated case studies and testimonies from global industry experts.

In Japan 30% of single women and 15% of single men in their twenties have admitted to having fallen in love with a meme or a character in a game. According to Adbusters this is emblematic to humanity’s increased detachment from reality. Or is the virtual, real enough already?! All things considered, Adbusters’ biggest share of criticism on the matter is reserved to Western capitalist ideals and the West’s determination to drag the rest of societies to modes of living strange to their inner selves. From an uncompromising standpoint against banks, politicians and corporations, Adbusters also takes aim at celebrities who have previously shown exceptional goodwill, like Bono of U2, who engaged in efforts to relieve developing countries from debt, or Madonna, who’s enthusiasm for charity work is widely celebrated, but have both evaded millions of tax assets in offshore havens.

So for example the first volume by Emily Berry, Anne Carson and Sophie Collins is about female experience in the present, and all the way back to ancient Greece. Whereas in the second issue it is the humorous style which distinguishes the writing of the three poets…etc. With six volumes issued to date, and a new volume coming up every three months, the series is potentially unlimited.
