On October 18, 2019, the Chilean people woke up and took to the streets to claim for 30 years of injustices and for profound changes to recover their dignity. The posters of this revolution begin to circulate around the world. Artists who have chosen anonymity to work today are mobilized for a change, printing and pasting their work in the streets of Chile. Today in our country printing is resisting.

Colorless Green Ideas Sleep Furiously

Jerónimo Rüedi
artist's book

You make rock candy by supersaturating boiling water with sugar, dropping a string into it, and letting it cool. This is what Jerónimo Rüedi (known best as a painter) has done in his books, but by dropping his mind into our world supersaturated with images and information. And instead of candy we get something sweeter than those crystals of pure sugar: books that —in how they shit on false prophets; in how they weaponize dark humor against globalism’s fatally accelerating greed; in how they damn the very foundations of how we make sense of our world— remind us to ground our lives in the parts of the world that haven’t been sold off yet, that still, in the face of it all, prioritize real attention. Colorless Green Ideas Sleep Furiously is a primer on how to break apart the platitudes of one’s time in order to piece them together again in a radically new vision, based on personal convictions rather than passive consumption. Whether you’re Steve Jobs or Aristotle, sleep with one eye open: you’re not making the sense you think you are.

Lara Konrad
artist's book
poetry

Mother, We All Have Been Lonely and Lovely Places serves as a trajectory of personal history, narrating the various stages of female dependency in a patriarchal landscape. As the book intimately examines emotional and sexual behavioral patterns of relationships that (re)formulate in accordance to the inevitable process of aging, its readers not only witness adopted gender performativities within society, but gradually begin to notice the universal longing to unearth purpose in hopes of outgrowing human loneliness.

PHOTOGRAPHY

"Since the early 2000s, I have been making daily photographs with digital cameras. Each day this archive of digital files would grow bigger. I had no intention to exhibit these.
In 2018, in a culture over-inundated and amassed with photographs (mostly digital) and with eroded attention spans, I decided to start erasing my photo archive. This erasure became an art-work I titled it NOSTALGIA. The passages in this book are descriptions of a selection of digital photographs that have
been deleted."

PHOTOGRAPHY

The photographs in this book are part of the photographer Alberto Flores Varela's archive and most of them were taken at the request of the Cuahtémoc y Famosa Society, an institution created in 1918 by Cervecería Cuauhtémoc, founder of the modern Monterrey. It should be remembered that the context of those years was one of revolution. The business elite was totally threatened by the addition of labor rights contained in the new constitution of 1917, and which included the right to strike.

Reunion are various acts that involve conversing, reading and writing; quotidian yet strange acts that always implicate being next to one another. Zelko writes down poems that others dictate to him. After completing his homework of how to listen and how to write, he edits the books within the next coming days. In a round of nine people, the writings are presented to the author’s neighbors, friends, and family. The writer reads his poems; he listens to himself while he is being heard by others.

The second part of the project consists of an extension of the first project, in other places. In a round of nine chairs, the writer’s poems are read by spokespeople, emissaries who lend their bodies, eyes and voices. It is a chain of situations and encounters: subjects dictating and reading, reading and writing; books and poems. All these are actions and proceedings in order to be together.

This edition, titled North Border, was realized between September 2017 and October 2018, taking place in Mexico, USA, and Canada (Tijuana, Veracruz, Texas, Florida, New York, Princeton and Toronto). The cover’s photograph was taken just before the presentation of Maritza’s book. Maritza read her poems aloud to her caravan friends. Then they gave away some books to people who passed by, and walked to the USA in order to seek political asylum.

MANIFESTO

Buildings are not empty containers awaiting their inhabitants. They are composed of a large and ever-changing array of objects. During construction, prioritizing certain objects — like walls, floors, roofs, etc. — limits appropriation itself. In order to increase the opportunities of appropriation, objects that are traditionally dealt with by architects to encompass the possibility of object — such as a wall, sink, chair —would need to be augmented.

In a landscape where the technologies governing our lives are increasingly obscured, this publication aims to reveal the underlying processes of a machine learning program. It seeks to mediate the “gaze” of the machine and human comprehension. The book documents the technical capabilities of an algorithm trained to analyze the formal patterns of the alphabet while it imagines other letters from that knowledge.

The resulting outputs — letters without semantic value — embraces and emphasizes the meaningless results of the machine: it is the human input and framework that imbues “sense” to these forms. Combining expository exercises with surreal typographic characters, Latent Space: Notes on Seeing Letters Like a Machine is a grounding text on the mechanics of machine learning and a visual celebration of formal possibility.

Domestic Orbits is a speculative essay that explores how the domestic space is configured around orbits of exclusion that shape the trajectories of domestic workers. How is the space articulated according to gender, class, or race? Organized through a series of case-studies that range from 1950s until today’s Mexico City, the book looks at the different scales in which domestic labor gets erased by architects and planners.

It reads the architectural plans of five well-known projects, giving a perspective that aims to highlight social and economical relationships. Domestic Orbits sketches a counter-history of modern architecture, questioning the duality that exists between the visible and invisible — those who count, and those who don’t.

When I had my daughter, I asked my boss if she could live with me and she said no because the house isn’t big enough. The room we sleep in is very small, so I haven’t been lucky enough to live with her.

Bouchra Khalili

poetry

In 1984, when Jean Genet was preparing the edition of his most important articles, he chose to start with a text that did not belong with the rest of the collection. The Declared Enemy — which would become the title of Albert Dichy’s reference edition of Genet’s articles and interviews from 1964 to 1986 — was written in Tangiers the same year that Genet was invited to encourage support and bear witness to the repression suffered by the Black Panther Party (1970). Bouchra Khalili’s The Radical Ally is a visual and textual investigation on the work she undertook in Twenty-Two Hours (2018).

She follows Genet’s traces during his stay with the Panthers, and questions what remains of the party’s political memory. Through other important voices, Bouchra interrogates the different layers of history that have engulfed the struggle for liberation to which the characters in her video have committed their lives to. In this publication, we explore the position of the radical ally as the reverse of the declared enemy. To become the radical ally, as Khalili reminds us in her interview with Jackie Wang, Genet had to destroy the white man in him.

It is a form of resistance,
reclaiming history from the power.

Nonverbal is a book of drawings in which animals, everyday objects and parts of the body serve as short narrations that communicate physical sensations without words. Employing a similar economy that is writing, the content considers the lyrical genre, paralinguistics and the overall language of cartoons. Due to such close proximity to literary creation, the drawings are read as poems, jokes or refrains.

And so what?What’s the problem? After all, national states are dysfunctional and outdated.

The line, the lie, and the lice is a book of divination that is governed by one idea: all complex ideas are composed of simple ideas.

Four ideas: error — neither the one or the other, but something much worse.

The book collects unpublished photographs that the American artist Zoe Leonard has taken along the Rio Grande (or Río Bravo) in 2017. As well, it includes commissioned texts by the Mexican poet and activist, Dolores Dorantes, who has been exiled to the UnitedStates for years.
  It is an immersion into the physical context, the actual barrier; the very heart of the border between Mexico and the US: the waters of the Río Bravo or Rio Grande. A number of figures appearing in the water recall something else though: skin, scars, wrinkles, genitals, the writing of an unknown language.
   It is a visual-textual attempt of conversationthat explores the tensions between thesimple, ever-changing but continuously-fluidflow of water, and all the terrible complexitiesaround, above and beneath it.

We were power, or we were once.
The water isn’t an attribute of your
circumstances. Crossing over isn’t
an attribute of your circumstances.

In more than 1400 laconic arguments, the Argentinian Malena Pizani describes an artist’s process of becoming. The statements— lacking verb in each sentiment — depict an artist that is petrified between two moments that for now does neither act, nor do, nor execute, nor intervene. It only thinks of itself, or sees itself through the gaze of the other.

An artist who looks out of the corner of his eye / An artist who looks out of the corner of his eye and also eavesdrops / An artist who looks out of the corner of his eye and makes comments in passing so that everyone else will hear / A mean-spirited artist / A dark energied artist / A dark-energied who has power / A dark-energied artist who has power and distributes it among other dark-energied artists.

manifesto

In this book, Doris Sommer, Director of the Cultural Agents Initiative at Harvard University, proposes an array of semantic neologisms in order to understand the new dynamics of our world that is in constant acceleration; how to create new ideas and new construction tools. It is a double invitation: on the one hand, it develops definitions that articulate an interdisciplinary lexicon. On the other, it suggests missing words. It is vital for the new lexicon’s intuitions to move into public discourse.

The Combahee River Collective Statement

Combahee River Collective
politics
manifesto

Combahee River Collective, an African-american feminist collective, presents a testimony of the reflective work since the1970s in the United States. The book discusses four major topics: the genesis of contemporary black feminism and the particularity of this very policy; the problems and the history of the collective; the black feminist practice and their issues. As feminists and lesbians, they know that sexual politics under patriarchy is pervasive in black women’s lives, as well as the politics of class and race.

We will discuss four major topics in the paper that follows: (1) the genesis of contemporary Black feminism;(2) what we believe, i.e.,the specific province of our politics; (3) the problems in organizing Black feminists, including a brief her story of our collective; and (4) Black feminist issues and practice.

Untitled Manifesto

Juan Caloca
Manifesto

Starting with the exclamation mark assumes that there is an exit on the other side. Untitled Manifesto asks: what is decomposition made off? In other words, does it take an exclamation mark in order to understand a question is taking form? For example, who can believe in the queries translated by Google? These are not questions without answers, but answers without questions. With his manifesto, the artist Juan Caloca shows how much knowledge we lack, and how little we know in order to imagine.

For the sake of humanity:
Burn this and all manifestos!
To see if someone remembers us
only with the oral memory.

Autoerotism Exercise:

1) Subjects were visited at the location they have chose to take the photographs.

2) The camera was mounted on a tripod and synchronized to work remotely: the camera shot photographs at fixed intervals of time.

3) Subjects were left totally alone with the camera and thus were able to direct, select wardrobe and choose the duration of their sessions. They also had the choice to stop the sequence and restart it as many times as they required.

4) When they were finished, the equipment was recovered.

A riddle book searching for answers in a hidden world defined through architectual landscapes in our mind. There are roads leading to secret treasures, inquiring the ultimate philosophical question of our origin and the self. Square by square, word by word, page by page, we are left to solve the riddle and its mystery. Or are the diagrams architectual maps of long forgotten places?

POLITICS

The deliberate use of merchandising strategies in presidential campaigns and governmental communications have in the past decade sought out ways to close the gap between the people and their candidates or government officials. The epitome of such strategies can be found in one section of the official web site of the Mexican presidency entitled “My picture with the President”. Now six years into his devastating presidency, it seems clear that the only thing president Enrique Peña Nieto has been interested in all along was looking his best with his fans.

On June 19th 2016 in the Nochixtlán community in Oaxaca, Mexico, a confrontation happened between the federal police and a group of people protesting against the educational reform deployed by the government of Enrique Peña Nieto. This confrontation left 8 people dead and over 108 people injured. Specialists concluded in their opinion that most of these deaths were caused by firearms.

This is the diary of a curious, unsettled Athenian. The daily register of an overworked documenta employee. The notes of a bewildered art enthusiast. This is a memoir—a documentary—an anecdote—a flashback. And a dissonant guide to a so-called «hot» city and its residents, as they encountered or reacted to a major art event. All photos and quotes presented in this book were found and collected from documenta 14 press material, exhibition reviews, online blogs, social media, and the streets of Athens and Kassel.

POETRY

"Something is moving beneath the surface of the land. It´s a rabbit digging rapidly a hole along the countryside. The bunny gets out of the hole and opens up a map to check his whereabouts. He says to himself: “Let´s see now. Through Azusa, turn left at Cucamonga… till you hit Los Angeles. The straight out Wilshire Boulevard to the La Brea Tar Pits. I knew I should of taken that left turn at Albuquerque.” It´s a Warner cartoon form the nineteen forties seen once too often in my childhood, dubbed in Spanish. The left turn at Cucamonga, or more precisely, the word Cucamonga scintillated like a strange jewel, pronounced once and again, nonsensical and bombastic. I didn´t know then that it was a valley in San Bernardino. It also explains why it was used in a Warner cartoon. You´re driving down a highway in southern California and you read a sign of the next exit. You read it out loud: “Rancho Cucamonga”, you use it in a Warner cartoon, you used as a title for a concrete poetry book as nonsensical and bombastic as the word. You say the word, you inhabit the word, you make a habit of the word -any word- you choose it at random, then you choose another and another, making a sound pattern that means one thing and the next. Words run along –never moving, never standing still- between content and expression, between Deleuze and Guattari: an abstract machine, an abstract monster, an abstract."

El que reina más allá es el dinero; es este el que se comunica, y lo que falta en la actualidad no es, por cierto, una crítica del marxismo, sino una teoría moderna del dinero que sea tan buena como la de Marx y la prolongue.

14 195 causas de muerte


politics

Exhaustive list of all causes of death registered by the Ministry of Health of México. Meticulous and exhaustive taxonomy of decease; classified by type, gender, family and circumstance. Instruments usually employed to produce a death certificate, an eloquent part of the bureaucratic codification of life and death, are here subordinated to a different aim. A critical purpose of denunciation in the context of a country, México, where over the last years people disappear by thousands —mainly as victims of necropolitical agents, corruption networks and necroeconomical agents— For these people, a registered cause of death is another stolen Right, and this book is a humble form of vindication and homage.

En Obra it is a graphic memory of Mexico City that portrays the rise and decay of its modernization project until the democratic and citizen awakening through the collection of the Museo Archivo de la Fotografía. What we see here is the material of a little explored, almost unpublished file, which was protected for several decades. In it you can find images that go from the registration of infrastructure works such as water, drainage, paving, and lighting, to the transformation of public markets. It offers a look at reformatories, prisons, hospitals, fire stations, driver education programs and traffic police actions. It also shows many of the symbolic elements of power, its monuments and civic rituals. This book thus constitutes a self-portrait of the State and in it the history of the governments of the city, the birth and evolution of the urban trace intersect with the transformation of the daily life of its inhabitants.

Reunión is composed of various acts that involve conversation, reading and writing: daily actions –though at the same time out of the ordinary- that always involve being face to face. Dani Zelko writes down poems that others dictate to him. They dictate to him as the conversation develops and then finally ceases. After fulfilling his task as a listener and copyist, he edits and prints the books the following day. The books are presented to neighbors, family and friends of the writer in a circle of nine people. The writer reads his poems out loud, he listens to himself and the others hear him for the first time.The second part of the project consists of an extension of the first acts in other places. Writers’ poems are read out loud by spokespersons, emissaries and people who lend their body, eyes and voice to read in a round of nine chairs the poems of people who are absent. A chain of actions, subjects dictating and reading, a scribe and a listener, spokesmen and listeners, books and poems. Actions and procedures for being with others.

There is a physical city and a lived city, transited. Each step in it names the individual as a plural being, A wall, a camera, and a gaze inhabiting the space. Between public and private is the description of those who set up and shape a city. That transit reveals the individual states of who in front of the camera tells us about himself and who looks at them, selects and builds his own narrative of the city. Series of photographs taken in 2007 in front of the wall of the Supreme Court of Justice, Mexico City.

Written in braille, Tercera Persona is a discussion that takes place between ‘him’ and ‘her.’ The reader witnesses a conversation of misunderstandings, the impossibility that is communication and everything quotidian.

Veronica Gerber Bicecci (MexicoCity, 1980) reduces language into a less complex framework, so everything we cannot understand — but that which haunts us everyday — becomes again what it actually is and always was.
