Karel Martens
Reprint


This book is published on the occasion of an exhibition of work by Dutch designer Karel Martens at the Royal Academy of Arts in The Hague. Besides offering a closer look at his free work, it also covers his approach to the teaching of graphic design. Comprising a selection of both past work and more recent applied work, it also includes new essays by David Bennewith, who examines Martens’ approach to teaching through its history and accounts from students, and Robin Kinross, who offers a meditation on the artist’s free work, which demonstrates a consistent line of inquiry through his 54 years in graphic design. Martens was the recipient of the Gerrit Noordzij Prize in 2012.

Simon Denny
Secret Power

Simon Denny is known for his research-based art projects, which have explored such themes as technology obsolescence, corporate culture, national identity, and internet politics.
As the New Zealand representative at the Venice Biennale in 2015, Denny is going to present Secret Power. His starting point was how the world is imagined and depicted by powerful states today.
Secret Power will take two venues in Venice: the historic Marciana Library in the heart of the city, and the new terminal at Marco Polo International Airport.
The project addresses the way that complex intelligence-gathering systems are represented visually, whether in sixteenth century Venice or the present day.
Denny’s Secret Power explores the Biennale, the Library, and the Airport as frames, hinting at geopolitical imperatives that cross-reference and distinguish each of them.
Produced in collaboration with designer David Bennewith, this fully illustrated volume will offer a guide and commentary to this complex, layered project. With essays by curator Robert Leonard and art critic Chris Kraus, and an interview with Amsterdam-based graphic designers Metahaven.

Ruth Buchanan
The weather, A Building

With texts by Ruth Buchanan and Ian White

Libraries are generally perceived as storehouses, spaces of stable accumulation and containment. While the architecture may attempt to operate in this stable tone, the material contained within them is often far wilder. Histories, biographies, loose thoughts, detailed notations, bodies, and objects are all temporarily suspended, cataloged, and organized, creating relationships where perhaps previously there was none. An example of where the tension between what is contained in libraries and how it is contained emerges in a highly palpable way in the trajectory of the Staatsbibliothek Berlin. This new artist book by Ruth Buchanan charts three narratives associated with the life of this particular library. The anecdotes become both concrete examples and metaphors through which to interrogate the production, situating, and sharing of meaning.

Simon Denny
Envisaging Vocational Rehabilitation

Catalogue for the exhibition Envisaging Vocational Rehabilitation at the Westfälischer Kunstverein, Münster

Vocational rehabilitation is a term that refers to a process of compelling and enabling people to overcome disability so they can work. This social practice is the starting point for a collaboration between the Berlin-based artist Simon Denny and Joanna Fadyl, a PHD candidate from New Zealand who’s thesis focuses on this topic.

Exemplary documents originating from New Zealand’s social history have been compiled and processed by Denny and David Bennewith to form a central brochure from where the diverse parts of the project are accessed; including a video, Twitter feed and computer application.

This unique and limited edition brochure is structurally informed by Facebook’s new timeline protocol and Edward Tufte’s notions about the visualisation of information; which are also starting and reference points for the graphic design. As well as its concertina, a series of tipped in fold-outs act like interpolations – alluding to the contemporary [digital] archive, translated back into layered space. The brochure is explicitly designed as a resource for communicating Fadyl’s PHD research to the field and further; half of the edition is distributed within this context.
