“I have something for you, I’ll send it over. You know for four years now I have been trying to propagate shiso and it hasn’t grown. I tried everything: freezing and thawing the seeds, leaving them in the dark for a year, different temperatures and humidity… The seeds Taro sent me in February came up no problem, just in fine soil with a sheet of paper over the pot outside, no special equipment or lights. Crazy. The kitchen garden at home is now being taken over by green shiso plants with huge leaves everywhere. We have a glut, as the English call it. Fearful of it not reseeding and growing next year I’ve been stripping the leaves and producing shiso sugar syrup and shiso-infused vodka. The vodka is unbelievably good! I thought of proposing it to ABSOLUT as a new flavour. We’ll see. Anyway, I have a bottle for you! ”

Attention Economy
Jahresring #60: Jahrbuch für moderne Kunst

Edited by Brigitte Oetker and Nicolaus Schafhausen
Interviews with Saâdane Afif, Thomas Bayrle, Michael Beutler, Monica Bonvicini, Mike Bouchet, Ulla von Brandenburg, Angela Bulloch, Andrea Büttner, Keren Cytter, Simon Denny, Thea Djordjadze, Ólafur Elíasson, Harun Farocki, Dani Gal, Katharina Grosse, Eberhard Havekost, Florian Hecker, Christian Jankowski, Susanne Kriemann, Antje Majewski, Olaf Metzel, Carsten Nicolai, Olaf Nicolai, Marcel Odenbach, Silke Otto-Knapp, Willem de Rooij, Cornelia Schleime, Michael Stevenson, Hito Steyerl, Haegue Yang, Tobias Zielony

The 60th Jahresring takes the form of a compilation of artist interviews and offers a snapshot of a highly active art scene that stretches from Berlin, as a new international center for art. Nicolaus Schafhausen put a series of questions to thirty-one art practitioners, less geared toward the artists’ respective praxis and more toward the conditions under which it arises.

Art’s presence in the field of new media has never been more pronounced; access to media images and Internet-based possibilities for research have significantly altered contemporary art production. The art market too has changed, gaining influence in the field of contemporary art as even art institutions take a different approach today than they did twenty years ago.

The focus in these interviews is on the respective self-positioning by the artists in an era shaped by such far-reaching changes. What emerges are temporally fixed positions within an activity that is, for the most large part, associated with precarious working conditions and the logistics of the market more than ever before. This book offers insight into this “other” dimension of an artist’s existence and registers attention economy as a central component of contemporary art production.

Markus Weisbeck
Surface

With texts by Daniel Birnbaum, Adam Budak, William Forsythe, Anselm Franke, Liam Gillick, Christoph Keller, Albrecht Kunze, Andrej Kupetz, Zak Kyes, Aram Lintzel, Stephan Mathieu, Michaela Melián, Lars Müller, Vanessa Joan Müller, Carsten Nicolai, Christine Peters, and Georg Schöllhammer

By its very nature, graphic design is primarily concerned with giving shape to ideas and information generated by others. For the last decade, Markus Weisbeck has been redefining this prevailing client-designer relationship and subsequently challenging what constitutes a graphic design practice today. This pocket book presents a selection of seminal graphic design projects developed by Weisbeck and his firm, Surface, over the last ten years; projects that strongly reveal Surface’s experimental approach and conceptual dexterity, contributing to and informing contemporary graphic design.

As the designer of the Lukas & Sternberg Pocket Book Series, Weisbeck has implemented his graphic strategy with twenty distinct titles, the twenty-first of which he is both designer and author. This book presents select projects by Weisbeck and Surface, each illustrated by the graphics themselves, short descriptions, and texts by Weisbeck’s clients and collaborators.
