A free publication edited by Romana Schmalisch during her residency at Les Laboratoires d’Aubervilliers.
“The first issue analyses the conjunction of dance with Labour Movements of the 1930s (New Dance Group) as well as its use in the industry to enhance efficiency (Laban/Lawrence); it looks at the vague image that we have from various professions, researches the value of the performance of a work and its equivalence in the wage, and considers different forms of abstractions (notations and graphics) and training methods.”
“The second issue focuses on the question of education. In an interview, sociologist Anne Querrien discusses social norms and the school system. In her text, the London-based writer Marina Vishmidt revisits an earlier essay which considered the relationship between contemporary dance and the de-materialization of labour. What changes about this relationship as all employment becomes more and more of a brutal hypothesis in our post-crisis conditions?”
“The last, third, issue deals with what is at stake when one learns a job, with relationships between teachers and students, with various methods of education, and with the way these systems reflect certain social norms.”

“BÏF§ZF+18 Simultaneità e Chimismi lirici [BÏF§ZF+18. Simultaneity and Lyrical Chemistry] is a poetry book and artist’s book published in 1915 by the Italian futurist Ardengo Soffici. Despite its rarity, the book has become famous as one of the finest examples of futurist ‘words-in-freedom’, and has been described as ‘absolutely the most important book that came out of Florentine Futurism’.
The book is divided into two roughly equal halves; the first, Simultaneità, contains 12 ‘simultaneous’ poems laid out in standard typography; the second section, Chimismi lirici, contains 10 poems that use multiple fonts, signs, adverts, brand names, repetition and onomatopoeiac devices that are contemporaneous to Marinetti‘s similar experiments in Zang Tumb Tumb, and prefigure Marinetti’s later, more abstract Les mots en libertés futuristes, 1919.” (Wikipedia)
