Abstract

The things sought after here are apparitional: they appear and disappear at will; they perfect the art of materialization and vanishing. Such is the nature of living dangerously, and with it the short duration of enchantment. This collection tracks provocative ideas, artifacts, and phenomena rising and fading across different territories of the contemporary world. Through a constellation of powerful thought-images, the authors uncover spaces of an ephemeral and fugitive nature in order to generate a fractal vision of our time and beyond. A former communist prison island in the Adriatic Sea, now abandoned and overgrown with wild plants; the stone garden of a deaf Iranian peasant who dances ecstatically among his geological formations; a Belgian sculptor who combines wax and flesh to depict human and animal forms in states of half-manifestation, incompletion (missing limbs), or branching (morphing into other organisms); a cultural movement in Brazil that takes the discarded debris of urban centers and transforms their splintered wood pieces into massive labyrinths and underground caverns; a blacksmith poet in Afghanistan who alternates between tasks of hammering metal and writing lyrical verses amidst the smoke-clouds of his forge; a Cuban writer whose delirious fixation with the sea compels him to invent a language of pure untimeliness. There are countless sites of disturbance within the postmodern landscape, and yet far too often these disruptive “scenes” remain untheorized and misaligned, treated as random deviations and thus afforded no surpassing consequence or philosophical complexity. Such micro-trajectories necessitate an archive and conceptual matrix that will steal them from their false obscurity and decipher them instead as the passcodes to an imminent global turn. For this, one must return to the amorphous outlook of “the marauder” or “the wanderer.” This book, then, aims to devise an ever-expanding configuration of radical outsides: elemental fronts that lead to unforeseen principles; alternative profiles of experience (intense becomings); incendiary, ominous, or vitalistic signs in circulation across the epochal horizon.

Abstract

More&More is an art and research project that explores the language and mechanics of global trade, container shipping, and the exchange of goods. It questions a mercantile structure that by necessity disallows the presence of ocean as a real space in order to flatten the world into a Pangaea of capital. The project is presented in two volumes, released in conjunction with an exhibition of Marina Zurkow’s work (with collaborators Sarah Rothberg, Surya Mattu, and others) at bitforms gallery in New York City in February 2016. This book, More&More (A Guide to the Harmonized System), is an experimental “brick” of a book that intervenes in the Harmonized Commodity Description and Coding System (also known as the HS Code). The HS Code is the internationally accepted standard of product classification, which codifies the way nations conduct import/export. All legal trade products (and illegal ones that find loopholes) are shipped using this system. More&More (A Guide to the Harmonized System) lists the astonishing variety of items that are shipped around the world, and includes instructions for using the code to ship items (both legally and illegally). It also includes poetic, personal, and scholarly annotations by Stacy Alaimo, Heather Davis, Kathleen Forde, Dylan Gauthier, Elena Glasberg, Calliope Mathios, Steve Mentz, Astrida Neimanis, Chris Piuma, Elspeth Probyn, Sarah Rothberg, Phil Steinberg, Rita Wong, and Marina Zurkow. Its companion book, More&More (The Invisible Oceans), is a catalog of the exhibition, featuring many full-color images of the art on display (including video stills, bespoke bathing suits, and fungal sculptures), as well as an introduction by Marina Zurkow and a conversation between Zurkow and international curator Kathleen Forde.

Abstract

Fünf bedeutende Konvolute von Architekturzeichnungen und –reproduktionen aus den Beständen der Göttinger Universitätskunstsammlung und der Niedersächsischen Staats- und Universitätsbibliothek Göttingen werden in der Ausstellung „Gilly – Weinbrenner – Schinkel“ erstmals gemeinsam gezeigt. Eine besondere Entdeckung bieten dabei Friedrich Gillys Entwürfe für ein Theater in Stettin: Es sind die frühesten überhaupt bekannten, überdies brillant in Szene gesetzten Zeichnungen des früh verstorbenen Lehrers von Karl Friedrich Schinkel. Weitere Einblicke in die Architektenpraxis um 1800 vermittelt eine Mappe mit Zeichnungen für ein Theater in Königsberg, die vermutlich Carl Ferdinand Langhans nach Entwürfen Gillys angefertigt hat. Von der Mittelalter-Faszination dieser Zeit zeugt Friedrich Fricks ebenfalls nach Vorlagen Gillys gedruckte Aquatinta-Serie „Schloss Marienburg in Preußen“. Für einen pragmatischen, aber nicht minder bemerkenswerten Umgang mit mittelalterlicher Bausubstanz stehen Friedrich Weinbrenners Entwürfe für den Umbau der Göttinger Paulinerkirche zur Universitätsbibliothek. Und schließlich belegen Karl Friedrich Schinkels druckgraphisch reproduzierten Entwürfe für einen Königspalast auf der Akropolis in Athen, wie lange man im 19. Jahrhundert an einer schöpferischen Erneuerung des griechischen Altertums arbeitete. Die im Katalog erfassten Zeichnungen und Drucke laden dazu ein, Umbrüche und Leitmotive in der Architekturdarstellung um und nach 1800 nachzuvollziehen. Fünf einleitende Aufsätze eröffnen zusätzliche Forschungsperspektiven. So wird die Möglichkeit geboten, Motive, Funktionen und Wirkungsweisen von Baukunst auf Papier zwischen Klassizismus und Gotikrezeption anhand besonders attraktiver Werke zu verfolgen.
