Techno Casa
by Riccardo Benassi (Doormats No. 5)

Mobile phones have replaced design in mediating our relation to the surrounding space, writes Italian artist and composer Riccardo Benassi (born 1982). “All the tools that surrounded us were dematerialized. To stay alive – and to survive the digital – objects have become invisible, and are often processed in their own narratives.” Equal parts essay, diary and critical pamphlet, ‘Techno Casa’ is the fifth publication in Errant Bodies’ Doormats series.

The School Of Public Life
by Fred Dewey (Doormats No. 4)

 


Drawing on two decades of interventions in politics and culture, Fred Dewey’s The School of Public Life records the author’s efforts to revive and rethink public space from Los Angeles to Berlin and beyond. From his work in neighborhood councils and directing Beyond Baroque in Los Angeles, Dewey reexamines community life, art, history and self-government against the abyss of economics, parties and constructed powerlessness. The book explores the works of thinker Hannah Arendt, the poet Charles Olson, artist Joseph Beuys’ Office for Direct Democracy, experiments at Black Mountain College and Beyond Baroque, and Rosa Parks and the Montgomery bus boycott.

DIARY OF AN IMAGINARY EGYPTIAN
by Brandon LaBelle (Doormats No. 2)

“Writing comes up from under my skin,” writes Brandon LaBelle. “It creeps into my sleep, to tense my fingers; I am plunged into it, as a space for capturing a new voice, for figuring a new body: to take an empty page and to fill it, with the day to day.” LaBelle’s work as an artist and theorist focuses on the interrelation between the sonic arts, popular culture and theory. The second volume in Errant Bodies’ Doormats series is LaBelle’s attempt to engage the events of the Arab Spring through the diary form, in which personal memories are conjoined with broader cultural reflections on American imperialism and revolution.
