Transparenzen/Transparencies : The Ambivalence of a New Visibility
Simone Neuenschwander, Thomas Thiel (Eds.)


Edited by Simone Neuenschwander, Thomas Thiel

With contributions by Emmanuel Alloa, Neïl Beloufa, Clare Birchall, Juliette Blightman, Ryan Gander, Calla Henkel and Max Pitegoff, David Horvitz, Metahaven, Simone Neuenschwander, Katja Novitskova, Yuri Pattison, Manfred Schneider, Thomas Thiel

The globalized world seems at once transparent and opaque. The exhibition project “Transparencies” examined the cultural facets and atmospheres of these (non-)transparencies. The two-part, joint exhibition project in Bielefeld and Nuremberg was dedicated to developments in “transparent society,” asking how these are reflected in the current work by contemporary artists. The paradigm of transparency and the ambivalence of the term was addressed by participating artists in multiple, diverse ways. This book documents both exhibitions and outlines all of the contributions to this substantial project. Conceptually designed by Metahaven, it contains artistic statements and scientific essays that encourage an ongoing discussion of the subject.

HYBRIDIZE OR DISAPPEAR
João Laia (Ed.)

João Laia, ed.
Texts by Stephanie Bailey, Paulo Cunha E Silva, Attilia Fattori Franchini, João Laia, João Ribas, Alex Ross, David Santos, Andrey Shental, Eleanor Ivory Weber, Rósza Zita Farkas

This publication has been produced in the framework of “Hybridize or Disappear”, a group exhibition with works by Cécile B. Evans, Neïl Beloufa, Antoine Catala, Diogo Evangelista, Oliver Laric, Shana Moulton, Katja Novitskova, Laure Prouvost and Magali Reus at the Museu Nacional de Arte Contemporânea – Museu do Chiado, Lisbon, and at the Paços do Concelho, Câmara Municipal do Porto. Edited by João Laia, this book aims to expand on the universe of the show, posing a wide set of questions that shape contemporary visual culture, rather than serving as a document or an archive. Through the lens of the “hybrid”, the commissioned texts look at different dimensions of our current condition, addressing ideas related to the circulation of identity and meaning in our mediated environments.

Life Itself
Edited by Daniel Birnbaum, Stefanie Hessler, Carsten Höller & Jo Widoff

Anyone undertaking a study of the concept of “life” in our culture will observe that it never gets defined as such, writes Giorgio Agamben. Instead, he claims, this indeterminate thing – life itself – gets articulated and divided time and again through a series of oppositions that give it a function in the sciences without ever being defined as such. These theoretical and literary articulations are what this book is about, and what the 173 texts by authors, scientists and philosophers from all times and all disciplines will try to answer.
Ernst Haeckel, speculative biologist and naturalist, coined key concepts as phylum and ecology. In the years 1899-1904 he published Kunstformen der Natur (Art Forms of Nature), one hundred prints depicting organisms many of which were first described by Haeckel himself, who with this project took an unusual step from science to art. His sketches thus create a bridge between this book and the exhibition at Moderna Museet, appearing in the margins of both. Otherwise there is no art in this publication and the division of labor strict: the exhibition is art?s chance to answer the topic spelled out in the subtitle to Life Itself: “On the question of what it essentially is; its materialities, its characteristics, considering that attempts to answer this question by occidental sciences and philosophies have proven unsatisfactory.”

Exhibition featured the work of Giovanni Anselmo, Olga Balema, Hicham Berrada, Joseph Beuys, Karl Blossfeldt, Constantin Brancusi, Victor Brauner, Nina Canell, Lygia Clark, Trisha Donnelly, Monica Englund, Valia Fetisov, Dirk Fleischmann, Katharina Fritsch, Ernst Haeckel, Barbara Hauser, Tamara Henderson, Eva Hesse, Damien Hirst, Tehching Hsieh, Pierre Huyghe, Carsten Höller/Rosemarie Trockel, On Kawara, Josh Kline, Hilma af Klint, Edward Krasinski, Mark Leckey, Helen Marten, Henri Michaux, Barnett Newman, Otobong Nkanga, Katja Novitskova, Philippe Parreno, Giuseppe Penone, Leo Reis, Ulf Rollof, Rachel Rose, Anri Sala, Sebastian Stöhrer, Sturtevant, Paul Thek, Rosemarie Trockel, Rosemarie Trockel/Günter Weseler, Christine Ödlund.
