Audiosphere: Sound Experimentation 1980-2020 (2020)

“By way of a selection of hundreds of sound works, Audiosphere. Sound Experimentation 1980-2020 looks to cover an historical and cultural void in terms of the recognition, exhibition and analysis of a key part of the recent changes that have taken place in the artistic conception of sound creation.

In the following catalogue, the curatorial discourse that articulates the exhibition is displayed along with some texts that affect the relevance of sound art in contemporary art and, with it, in the social field.”

Martina Griesser-Stermscheg, Nora Sternfeld, Luisa Ziaja (eds.): Sich mit Sammlungen anlegen. Gemeinsame Dinge und alternative Archive (2020) [German]

“Wie lässt sich die Idee der Commons im Kontext von Museen, Archiven und Sammlungen denken? In welchem Spannungsverhältnis stehen alternative Sammlungsstrategien und die Reproduktion eines etablierten Kanons? Welche Rolle spielen künstlerische Praxen für die Demokratisierung und Zugänglichmachung von Sammlungen?

Gegen den Trend einer zunehmenden Ökonomisierung und Kanonisierung des Sammelns gibt es immer lautere Stimmen, die Leerstellen in Sammlungen kritisieren und Diskussionen über neue diverse Sammlungsstrategien befeuern. Versteht man die Schaffung von Commons auch als eine soziale Praxis für die Formulierung alternativer Formen der Wissensproduktion und des Wissensaustauschs, so eröffnen sich für öffentliche Museen, Sammlungen und Archive herausfordernde Fragestellungen hinsichtlich Zugänglichkeit, Eigentum und Öffentlichkeit. Ausgehend von dem kürzlich erschienenen Band Sich mit Sammlungen anlegen. Gemeinsame Dinge und alternative Archive entwickeln die Beitragenden neue Perspektiven auf die Verknüpfung etablierter institutioneller Infrastrukturen und alternative Methoden des Sammelns.

Mit Antonia Alampi, Stefan Aue, Filipa César, Knut Ebeling, Martina Griesser-Stermscheg, Belinda Kazeem-Kamiński, Vera Lauf, Cornelia Sollfrank, Nora Sternfeld, Luisa Ziaja, Franciska Zólyom u. a.”

Fábrica de Conocimiento / Factory of Knowledge (2016) [Spanish/English]

“This book is published on the occasion of the 15th Regional Exhibition, center area, Garage School: Knowledge Factory, produced and curated by Laagencia, from June 30 to September 19, 2015.”

“La estructura editorial del libro se divide, sin ninguna jerarquía, en tres partes: Teorías varias, una selección de textos existentes relevantes —tanto en la concepción como realización de la curaduría— y otros inéditos, comisionados de manera abierta a agentes participantes. La sección Hágalo con otros, ejercicios que traducen los formatos de la Escuela para que puedan replicarse, hacerse con otros y transformarse. Las respuestas de todos los invitados a las preguntas ¿Qué quiere aprender? ¿Qué quiere enseñar?, a manera de presentación. Y por último un anexo en formato de carteles, un glosario como un ejercicio de especulación donde se resignifican una serie de términos que fueron nominando las jornadas de cada semana, que en su totalidad componen un diagrama de la Fábrica. Este es solo un documento parcial y subjetivo, una visión de las tantas posibles que se despliegan entendiendo el arte y la educación como territorio, desde la curaduría, la visibilización de la producción inmaterial y las prácticas instituyentes en Colombia a principios del siglo XXI.”

Legacy Russell: Glitch Feminism: A Manifesto (2020)

“Simone de Beauvoir said, “One is not born, but rather becomes, a woman.” The glitch announces: One is not born, but rather becomes, a body.

The divide between the digital and the real world no longer exists: we are connected all the time. What must we do to work out who we are, and where we belong? How do we find the space to grow, unite and confront the systems of oppression? This conflict can be found in the fissures between the body, gender and identity. Too often, the glitch is considered a mistake, a faulty overlaying, a bug in the system; in contrast, Russell compels us to find liberation here. In a radical call to arms, Legacy Russell argues that we need to embrace the glitch in order to break down the binaries and limitations that define gender, race, sexuality.

Glitch Feminism is a vital new chapter in cyberfeminism, one that explores the relationship between gender, technology and identity. In an urgent manifesto, Russell reveals the many ways that the glitch performs and transforms: how it refuses, throws shade, ghosts, encrypt, mobilises and survives. Developing the argument through memoir, art and critical theory, Russell also looks at the work of contemporary artists who travel through the glitch in their work. Timely and provocative, Glitch Feminism shows how an error can be a revolution.”
