The theme of this issue – The New New Left – is not entirely “new new,” as indeed it relates to the old anti-capitalist Left in its insistence on a theoretical analysis of capitalism and the price paid by many in such a system. But as the discourses and strategies long associated with the Left (workerism, identity politics, or the mode of the avant-gardist troll) have been adopted by anti-progressive outlets, it has become increasingly complex to locate a Left stance from which to effectively speak and act. This issue explores the affective mechanisms and media strategies – from the rise of viral content (memes) to the harvesting and right-wing politicization of emotions – that are producing our post-millennial, post-financial crisis, post-Brexit/Trump present.

MARCH 2017 “THEY ARE US"
ISSUE NO. 105 / MARCH 2017 “THEY ARE US / WIR SIND IHR”
With Issue #105, TZK considers the nationalist, conservative, and racist ideologies that have recently become more visible across Europe and the US, giving particular focus to questions of border politics and migration — of humans, of data, of patrimony, of signs. Advised by Helmut Draxler, Isabelle Graw, and Susanne Leeb, this issue was conceived prior to the US presidential election as a cooler reflection on present political debates. And yet having been produced amid the chaos of the Trump administration’s first weeks, it also necessarily stands as a reflection of political-aesthetic thinking during markedly volatile times: Wir sind Ihr? They are us? We are them?

In 2016 Helen Marten is shortlisted for both the Turner Prize and The Hepworth Sculpture Prize.
Parrot Problems was Turner Prize nominated British artist Helen Martenʼs first institutional solo exhibition in Germany. Close to an artist book, 40 pages within the catalogue are designed by Helen Marten herself, featuring unique collages.
In insightful and precise essays Diedrich Diederichsen and Johanna Burton focus on the ‘artist of the hour’, who through processes of manipulation, abstraction and shifting resembles recognisable elements anew; piercing the patina of familiarity covering the density and complexity of our everyday material lives.
Frozen at full speed in vibration between two and three dimensions, the objects and images by Marten proliferate with models and motifs, which define physical and linguistic limits of everyday life.
In acts of jigsaw and camouflage, the recognizable is often shifted into a sense of immediate fuzziness. Both delicate and programmatic, the relationship between image and concept is therefore dependent on a sense of unfolding logic.
Through this emulation and repetition of ubiquitous gestures, expressions and objects the resultant differences between mimicry and metaphor are made productive: as Parrot Problems. Whether composed of leaves, glazed ceramic, cast aluminium, coins or timber, Marten’s assemblages distill the customary order of things to arrange it afresh.
Published retrospectively after the exhibition Helen Marten: Parrot Problemsat Fridericianum, Kassel, 6 September – 2 November 2014.
Texts by Diedrich Diederichsen and Johanna Burton.

Cosima Von Bonin
HIPPIES USE SIDE DOOR. THE YEAR 2014 HAS LOST THE PLOT
HIPPIES USE SIDE DOOR. THE YEAR 2014 HAS LOST THE PLOT, includes more than 100 works by Cosima von Bonin, ranging from her earliest to completely new works.
This retrospective exhibition also shows how von Bonin’s work has moved more and more in the direction of installations that increasingly come to take possession of the space they are placed in.
Another typical feature of her work is a complex network of relations between the fine arts and music that she has established, including longstanding colleagues and friends in her exhibition projects.
At mumok Vienna, Tocotronic and Phantom Ghost accompany the exhibition with concerts, and two further new formations from von Bonin’s circle of friends and acquaintances, The 3 Ypsilons and The Ypsilon Five, perform at the exhibition. The mumok museum facade gains a new balcony for this exhibition, with a figure standing on it and retching.
Appearances by Isa Genzken, Mike Kelley, Carl Andre, Martin Kippenberger, Christophe Verfaille, Okka-Esther Hungerbühler, Cady Noland, Helmut Baar, Colin de Land, Paul Thek, Michael Krebber…
Published on the occasion of the exhibition Cosima von Bonin: HIPPIES USE SIDE DOOR. THE YEAR 2014 HAS LOST THE PLOT at mumok, Vienna, 4 October 2014 – 18 January 2015.
