B.Wurtz works from a basement studio in his home on Manhattan’s Lower East Side.
This local fact is attested to by the plastic shopping bags and newsprint circulars that appear in his work. As formal objects, they don’t make loud claims about their origins but nonetheless transmit street addresses and places of business from the bottom of this long thin island. Like plenty of artists, Wurtz is affected by what is local and what is consumed. His work is underpinned by this ethic. It often speaks from a neighborhood or reads like the contents of a hamper:
“BLACK PLUMS $1.29 lb.”
“USDA Whole Pork Shoulder Picnic 99c lb.”
“RITE AID Pharmacy, with us it’s personal.”
“H. Brickman & Sons.”
“Sweet Yams 59c lb."
Most of the work in this exhibition was made while the artist was in residence at Dieu Donne, a workshop dedicated to paper craft in Midtown. Here Wurtz fabricated assemblages with paper and objects that are relatively lightweight, with the intention that they would be easily transportable to Australia. This consideration isn’t absolute in Wurtz’s work, but was prescriptive for making the current exhibition light and cheap. Packed in two boxes, these works were sent from a USPS post office on the Lower East Side and delivered to North Melbourne by Australia Post.
Wurtz appears courtesy of Metro Pictures, New York.

“...It contained seven objects. The slender fluted bone, surely formed for flight, surely from the wing of some large bird. Three archaic circuitboards, faced with mazes of gold. A smooth white sphere of baked clay. An age-blackened fragment of lace. A fingerlength segment of what she assumed was bone from a human wrist, grayish white, inset smoothly with the silicon shaft of a small instrument that must once have ridden flush with the surface of the skin - but the thing’s face was seared and blackened.”

"Autumn Projects Archive"
Curated by Liza Vasiliou
March 6 - March 15, 2014
World Food Books, in conjunction with the Virgin Australia Melbourne Fashion Festival 2014, presented the Autumn Projects archive, consisting of a selection of early examples in Australian fashion with a particular interest in collecting designers and labels from the period beginning in the 1980’s, who significantly influenced the discourse of Australian Fashion.
Curated by Liza Vasiliou, the exhibition provided a unique opportunity to view pieces by designers Anthea Crawford, Barbara Vandenberg, Geoff Liddell and labels CR Australia, Covers, Jag along with early experimental collage pieces by Prue Acton and Sally Browne’s ‘Fragments’ collection, suspended throughout the functioning World Food Books shop in Melbourne.

In a career spanning more than 30 years, encompassing such internationally renowned exhibition events as documenta (1997 and 2012) as well as the German Pavilion at the Venice Biennale (1999), and which has led the way to the world’s major museums, the artist has succeeded in creating new work complexes, objects and images that are continually surprising.
There had already been a great furor in the 1980s surrounding the reception of her wool works, machine knitted woolen fabrics attached to stretchers and then displayed as pictures. In a second group of works she assembled ordinary hotplates on shiny, white, enameled metal panels.
Objects with gender specific connotations were again re-contextualized, as had already occurred in the knitted pictures. These abstract works mainly originate from the 1990s and were the ones that secured Trockel’s place in the history of 20th century art.
This catalogue contains contributions by Johanna Burton, Yilmaz Dziewior, and Beate Söntgen that shed light on Trockel's art historical significance as well as her position in contemporary art. In his contribution, the American artist and author Sam Pulitzer takes an unconventional look at the work of Rosemarie Trockel.
Published for the exhibition at Kunsthaus Bregenz, 24 January – 6 April 2015.

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.

Built around a series of photographs by Andreas Laszlo Konrath taken over the course of multiple visits to Carol Bove’s studio in Brooklyn, this catalogue offers a behind-the-scenes look into her practice. Through the photographs, the reader experiences not only the development of her most recent body of sculptures—referred to by the artist as “collage sculptures”—but also the materials and conditions that contribute to their creation. They are constructed from square steel tubing that has been crushed and shaped at the studio, found scrap metals, and shallow, highly polished discs. Painted in vivid colors, the sculptures appear lightweight and improvisational despite their heavy materiality. In addition to Konrath’s rich and intimate photographs, also included are images of individual works shown silhouetted out of their original context, an attempt by the artist to draw the viewer away from typical ways of experiencing sculpture.
Created by the artist in close collaboration with designer Joseph Logan and published on the occasion of her eponymous show at David Zwirner, New York, in November 2016, Polka Dots features an essay by Johanna Burton that charts Bove’s fascination with process and commitment to disrupting traditional ways of seeing. A chronology provides a summary of Bove’s exhibitions and installations in major museums and private institutions around the world, offering a thorough resource for those interested in the artist’s development across time.

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.

The multiple platforms of the digital era have not diminished the role of the magazine for artists as an alternative medium and experimental space. Whether printed on paper or electronically generated, the artist’s magazine continues to be a place where new ideas and forms can be imagined as well as a significant site of artistic production. Intrinsically collaborative, including readers’ active engagement, the magazine is an inherently open form that generates constantly evolving relationships. It was integral to the emergence of art criticism in the Enlightenment period and to the development of artistic dialogues around notions of culture, politics, and the public from the modern era avant-gardes to the present.
This collection contextualizes the current condition and potential of the artist’s magazine, surveying the art worlds it has created and then superseded; the commercial media forms it has critically appropriated, intervened in, or subverted; the alternative DIY cultures it has brought into being; and the expanded fields of cultural production, exchange, and distribution it continues to engender. In addition to surveying case studies of transformational magazines from the early 1960s onwards, The Magazineincludes a wide-ranging archive of key editorial statements, from eighteenth-century Weimar to twenty-first century Bangkok, Cape Town, and Delhi.
Artists surveyed include
Can Altay, Ei Arakawa, Julieta Aranda, Tania Bruguera, Maurizio Cattelan, Eduardo Costa, Dexter Sinister, Rimma Gerlovina, Valeriy Gerlovin, Robert Heinecken, John Holmstrom, John Knight, Silvia Kolbowski, Lee Lozano, Josephine Meckseper, Clemente Padin, Raymond Pettibon, Adrian Piper, Seth Price, Raqs Media Collective, Riot Grrrl, Martha Rosler, Sanaa Seif, Rirkrit Tiravanija, Scott Treleaven, Triple Canopy, Anton Vidokle

In placing us at a remove from our relationships to familiar, domestic objects and environments, Robert Goberʼs labor-intensive work defies our understanding of accepted conventions and draws attention to the movement of meaning between materials and across personal histories.
Part of the 2000 Words series, conceived and commissioned by Massimiliano Gioni, and published by the Deste Foundation, Robert Gober: 2000 Words presents the entirety of the sculptorʼs works in the Dakis Joannou Collection and includes an essay by Johanna Burton that examines how the artistʼs work alloys personal histories with collective experience.

In this issue:
Lawrence Abu Hamdan, Art and Literature, Darja Bajagić, Walter Dahn, Fiction in Reality, Have We Become the Internet?, Lynn Hershman Leeson, The History of Exhibitions, Intimacy in Art, Nicholas Mangan, Park McArthur, The Multiplication of Moving Perspectives, Opening up to the Unexpected, Philippe Parreno and Paul B. Preciado, Systems Prosthetics, Time as Material, The Withdrawal of the Artist, Betty Woodman, Steina and Woody Vasulka.
Driven by the energy of art writing and artists' writing, contemporary literature seems to be consciously migrating into the art world. Some artists exist halfway between the two worlds and are evolving the most innovative characteristics of the literary canon. Brian Dillon attempts to analyze this type of writing, its practice and its potential.
Philippe Parreno and Paul B. Preciado, a philosopher, writer and activist at the helm of the Independent Studies Program of the MACBA, raise ground-breaking questions ranging from the coercion of the public by the institution to processes of disidentification from dominant sexual identities, in a conversation conducted by Hans Ulrich Obrist.
Starting in the 1990s, the history of exhibitions has taken on greater resonance in art writing. One precursor of this fundamental type of research was Bruce Altshuler, with his The Avant-Garde in Exhibition. Altshuler, Jens Hoffmann and Elena Filipovic engage in an extensive conversation on the history of exhibitions and the role artists have in organizing them.
Chus Martínez analyzes the beauty of an ecology of events of little interest for the market, but driven by an energy that might pressure the system to open to the unexpected, to balance out the impulse to guarantee results before any attempts have been made to break new ground.
The work of Lawrence Abu Hamdan reveals how the forensic linguistics applied to test the accents of political asylum applicants is often unreliable, on a par with the many audio charlatans hired to ascertain the origins of individuals. The artist discusses all this with Mihnea Mircan.
Youthful transgressions, previously fueled by romantic literature, have been transformed into desire for extreme self-assertion modeled on "first-person-shooter" video games and action movies. Ingo Niermann wonders about how it might be possible to reverse this trend, through the introduction of a positive kind of transgression.
What does it mean to be human in the light of increasingly pervasive technological developments? Omar Kholeif moderates a conversation between Constant Dullaart, Zach Blas and James Bridle, artists who have reflected at length on the impact of the integration of software and algorithms on everyday life.
Michael Wang explores the aesthetics of an art that actively engages with different systems, and the perspective of artists as they consider the objectives, limits and structure of a work that is no longer a matter of objects, but nimbly moves through the folds of these systems as energy.
A handful of artists over the last 50 years have "self-absconded" from the public eye and the social whirl of the system. Martin Herbert discreetly tracks several of them to formulate a hypothesis that reflects an increasing schism between the needs of artists and those of the art world.
Lynn Hershman Leeson's work is an incessant exploration of the nature of consciousness and its extension via technology. Kathy Noble gives an exhaustive overview of her versatile output, from the early pieces to films on identity, cloning and feminist politics featuring Tilda Swinton.
Confession in art can lead to works plagued by egocentric attitude or can bring results of genuine "alongsideness," where the social becomes visible without recourse to reconstruction. Lauren Cornell and Johanna Burton analyze works and artists that have been able to make critical use of intimacy.
Nice to Meet You:
The theme of access and the tensions involved in its possibility are the fulcrum of Park McArthur's production and the focus of this interview with Daniel S. Palmer.
Natalia Sielewicz talks to Darja Bajagić whose work recontextualizes saucy images seen as stereotypes by Western eyes, granting them a sort of liberating ambiguity.
Steina and Woody Vasulka are leading exponents of the video experimentation that began in the late 1960s. Elyse Mallouk analyzes their works from various decades in the light of our growing relationship with the inorganic systems that nurture our relationships of feedback.
Joan Jonas, Ken Okiishi, Jennifer West, and Lucy Raven meet on the common ground of work located at the intersection between visual arts, moving image and performance. In a conversation introduced and moderated by Filipa Ramos they share their ideas and discuss their practice and its relation to time, history, popular culture, theater and narrative.
Australian artist Nicholas Mangan talks to Mariana Cánepa Luna about his work that investigates the troubled relationship between man and the natural environment, and analyzes contexts and objects capable of freeing up narratives that take stock of reality.
Andrew Berardini visits the big clay-dusted studio-vase of Betty Woodman. Her chubby ceramic odalisques, with their alluring forms, covered with fragments of precious stones, embroideries and miniatures, tug him into a grand theater of forms and colors, wild things and aquatic creatures.
Walter Dahn indicated a path for art after conceptualism with his new way of thinking about painting. Daniel Schreiber met with the artist in his home in Cologne to talk about the artist's story and recent works, a series of silkscreens linked to the revolutionary power of music.
After the linear perspective of the Renaissance, new perspectives have been explored, starting with chronophotography and the overturning of vertical or bird's-eye perspective. Jennifer Allen investigates these various perspectives in relation to a number of contemporary artists who have reached multiple, mobile and fragmented visions.

“Art vs. Image”—this opposition refers to recent changes and conflicts in the academic field and in artistic and curatorial practices. They correspond with symptomatic developments, like a growing interest in images that lie “beyond,” or “outside” of art; a steady increase of writing in the fields of image studies and philosophy; or proclamations of an age “after art” in which images assume art’s legacy. While shifts in technology are changing art production, the contemporary criteria for success seem increasingly contingent on iconic potency and the optimized potential for circulation as image. The necessity of distinguishing between two different concepts is clear: numerous artistic practices would, in fact, disappear if art were predominantly located in the sphere of image production.
And whereas a critical analysis of art is well put in place, there still seems to be a lack of comparable attempts when it comes to analyzing images. The questions raised in the field of image studies often pertain to the ontology of the image, not to its politics, production, or economy.
In this issue, we call for a critique that does not dwell on surface phenomena, but poses questions as to how images come into being. We consider the often underdeveloped differentiation in the discourses on art and image; questions of status attached to the two concepts; and the operational logics of image production inside and outside the art context.
The issue also features a statement by the late Harun Farocki, as well as a commemoration of the filmmaker’s and author’s life and work by Diedrich Diederichsen.
Plus a picture spread by Marlie Mul and reviews from Basel, Berlin, London, Los Angeles, Munich, New York, Oslo, Pittsburgh, Sørbråten, and Venice.
