Tools for Radical Study: A Collection of Manuals

edited by KUNCI Study Forum & Collective

"For Tools for Radical Study: A Collection of Manuals, KUNCI have invited education practitioners from diverse learning spaces to share their tools, which have been developed through collective learning practices. At least for those who reside amid the proliferation of collective practices in the Global South, talking about and sharing tools means talking about and performing the redistribution of power – a power that is most likely derived through the process of knowledge accumulation. Talking about tools also means talking about things one finds in places like public kitchens, village meeting halls, slaughterhouses, and residential gardens – places where theory and its methods are rarely found, whether on the ground or in quotidian conversation.

Building on their educational initiative the School of Improper Education, KUNCI uses cross-referencing as a framework to provide a grounded understanding of local study contexts while also engaging in the mobility and connection of people, ideas, tools, and institutions that, in turn, multiply the frame of references in each implicated study practice. Inhabiting the space of sharing and collectivity, this multiplication creates a commons-based production of knowledge rather than a centralized accumulation of intellectual property. All contributors to this publication offer alternative forms of studying that are fundamentally practiced as a mode of sharing and nurturing alternative publics or counterpublics."

Contributors include Al Maeishah, Fawaz, Feminist Search Tools, Sanchayan Ghosh, Moelyono, S. Soedjojono and Sindhusiswara, Sima Ting Kuan Wu, and Chen Yun.

KUNCI Study Forum & Collective experiments with methods of producing and sharing knowledge through acts of studying together at the intersections between affective, manual, and intellectual labor. Since its founding in 1999 in Yogyakarta, Indonesia, KUNCI has been continuously transforming its structure, ways, and medium of working."

The Long 1980s: Constellations of Art, Politics and Identities

"The Long 1980s considers the significance of the 1980s for culture and society today. It revisits this pivotal decade via a collection of microhistories from across Europe that span the fields of art, culture, and politics. Central to the stories in this book is the changing relationship between ideologies, governments, and their publics, the effects of which have come to shape the contemporary condition of Europe and beyond. Artists, writers, and activists were responding to and articulating these changes in myriad ways: in the streets, through words, images, objects, and actions. At the same time, new subjectivities were emerging at the intersection of race, class, gender, and sexuality, all voices that were demanding to be heard.

The publication is divided into four thematic chapters: 1. No Alternative? (on counter cultures, alternative forms of self-organization and art as activism); 2. Know Your Rights (on civil liberties, the rising planetary consciousness and new ecologies); 3. Processes of Identification (on anti-colonial positions and the drive for sexual and gender equality through culture); 4. New Order (on the far-reaching effects of the neoliberal regime and, finally, the significance of the year 1989). Comprising newly commissioned essays by leading thinkers alongside seventy case studies, including images and archival material published for the first time, this reader offers an invaluable and alternative reading of the recent past. A constellation of over seventy micro-histories, ranging from significant exhibitions or events to publications or key essays are presented across the four sections, spanning the different contexts out of which the research developed: Belgium, Catalonia, the Netherlands, Slovenia, Spain, Turkey and the UK. These case studies are presented through a rich combination of archival material, reproductions or reprinted texts with introductions by curators, historians, and theorists."

Tactical Publishing: Using Senses, Software, and Archives in the Twenty-First Century

by Alessandro Ludovico

"How to level up to the next transformative phase of publishing—with a critical methodology that transcends the dichotomy of paper and digital media production.

Publishing is experiencing one of the most transformative phases in its history. In Tactical Publishing, a sequel to Post-Digital Print, Alessandro Ludovico explores the forces driving this historical phase, highlighting the tremendous opportunities it presents. Our task, he believes, is to develop an alternative publishing system that transcends the dichotomy between paper and digital media. He focuses first on the two activities on which publishing is premised—reading and writing (with an emphasis on writing machines and post-truth in the latter)—and then deconstructs the concept, proposing alternative strategies inspired by recent practices and unconventional uses of technology.

Ludovico shows how the radical and strategic use of print in the past can serve as the basis for our transition to the next phase of publishing. He argues that the new ecology of publishing should be based on three main elements: the stimulation of our senses, the role of software in forming the publishing infrastructure, and the importance of archives. During this transition from the current post-digital phase to the next phase, independent publishers and artists, as well as readers and machines, will enable new structures and actions that realize the potential of publishing and the preservation of content, thereby enriching social practices. The author also considers the crucial social role played by new forms of libraries, as artists and publishers shape the coming publishing world in its various manifestations. Combining analytical accounts of tactical strategies with examples from artworks and experimental practices, the book concludes with a manifesto for publishing in the twenty-first century and an appendix with a selection of one hundred publications representing the “periodic table” of future publishing."

Lindgren Jacob ed Extra-curricular 2018.jpg

edited by Jacob Lindgren

"Extra-curricular is a reader of texts on and around the topic of self-organized learning, curriculum, experiments, and alternatives in graphic design education. Occurring both within and separate from existing institutions, these other forms of learning and organization question how such learning takes place, for whom, and the ideologies inherent in existing models, among many other things. An (admittedly) incomplete inventory inspired by the widespread activity and educational turn (or shift) in the field, this book aims to serve as a point of departure for further discussion and experimentation."

Messe 2ok : ökonoMiese machen

Edited by / Herausgegeben von Alice Creischer, Dierk Schmidt, Andreas Siekmann

A reader from a fair for political initiatives and art groups, organised by Alice Creischer, Andreas Siekmann, Birger Huebel, Michaela Odinius and Dierk Schmidt. Took place parallel to Art Cologne 1995.

"Ein nahezu legendäres Buch im Großformat. Ein umfassendes Resümee zur politischen Diskussion autonomer Künstlergruppierung der 90er. Die Schwerpunktthemen sind:
Autonomie, Sponsoring, Stadtplanung und Ökonomie.
Die Messe 2ok war ein selbstorganisiertes und selbstfinanziertes Treffen von ca. 30 Gruppierungen aus dem Kunst-, Polit-, und Musikbereich aus der BRD, den Niederlanden, Dänemark, Italien, Ungarn, Österreich und der Schweiz parallel zur Art Cologne im November 1995.

Inhaltliche Schwerpunkte sind . . .

der politische Anspruch von nichtinstitutioneller Organisationsarbeit, deren Entscheidungsprozesse und deren ökonomische und politische Konsequenzen. Daran schließt sich eine ausführliche Behandlung des Themas Sponsoring an. Im Reader werden, neben zahlreichen Recherchen, Quellenmaterial und einer kritischen Bestandsaufnahme des bisherigen Standes der Diskussion in der Feuilletons (in denen Sponsoring seit dem vergangenen Jahr zum bevorzugten Thema avanciert), Vertragsentwürfe und die Diskussion von Strategien gegenüber Finanzierungsangeboten von politisch fragwürdigen Firmen (z.B. Siemens) vorgestellt.

und weiterhin: . . .

Autonomie: der Abgleich zwischen künstlerischen und politischen Autonomieverständnis Stadtplanung: der öffentliche Raum als privatwirtschaftliche Disposition: Strategien, Gegen-Projekte Ökonomie: kritische Diskussion der Paradigmen der politischen Ökonomie bzgl. der Aktualität der repressiven wirtschaftlichen Machtverhältnisse: Waren-, Geld-, Tausch- und Vermittlungsproblematik.

Der Reader bietet mit Beiträgen von über 20 AutorInnen einen umfassenden Überblick über den aktuellen Stand der politische Diskussion im Kunstbereich, den damaligen Strategien und dem daraus resultierenden Selbstverständnis autonomer künstlerischer Gruppierungen. Der Reader enthält Projektbeschreibungen, Interviews, Diskussionen, Aufsätze und Essays und vielfältige Materialien zu den einzelnen Themenschwerpunkten. Er enthält zahlreiche Abbildungen und gehört mit seinem bemerkenswerten Layout zu den diesbezüglichen Highlights der 90er Jahre." [1]
