They are:


Annette Wehrmann
Serpentine streamer texts

72 pages, ISBN 978-3-9817229-4-9

Annette Wehrmann’s thoughtful and funny diary style texts. Originally conceived to be performed by reading these texts, typed on serpentine streamers and blown through the space, while following these interweaving lines. On the occasion of Annette Wehrmann’s exhibition at KW Institute for Contemporary Art the texts were translated into English by Carrie Roseland, and now are published by Starship Verlag and Ort des Gegen e.V.

 


Hans-Christian Dany
Ode to Routine

An English-language compilation of essays by Hans-Christian Dany, author of several books in German, and many contributions to international art-journals. Ode to Routine  brings together seven recent essays, wandering off the streets into demonstrations, exhibitions or gambling parlors. This translation is also done by Carrie Roseland.

grass curtain for facade / Swallow, Vilnius, 2020

The work consists of several long bunches of locally grown sweetgrass, suspended from a metal ring structure outside in ten meters height on the facade of the building where Swallow art space is located. While the fresh cut grass leaves are drying in the weeks after the opening, and changing their colour from green to yellow, the installation emits a distinct and pleasant scent, possibly to be percieved even from within the exhibition. At the same time it will constantly be exposed and reacting to the current wind situation around the house, sometimes appearing turbulent and exaggerated, sometimes calm and barely moving.
Sunlight will pass through the moving leaves and animate the floor and walls inside. At darker, calmer days the grass will dim the outside light and create a transparent threshold, with the possibility to be put aside and opened like a curtain.

Martin Ebner and Ariane Müller, Arms Will Get Longer, 2020

 

The lack of any predictable future that defines this situation as being as far from normal as possible is embedded in the feeling that there has to be some difference to how the world has been before we went home.

The sky is extra blue these days.
I take long walks.

Longing. The vast studio of an artist friend, located two meters underneath the thin asphalt of empty Alexanderplatz, invisible for the outside. It is night, but lit by sunlight. She is rehearsing with an object, present and absent at the same time, smiling to her inside. An old indian conceptual artist sits at the table and writes. I accidentally cause remote music by scratching frozen snow on the wall with a long stick.

But this is a dream, and I don’t remember mine anymore.

·Worng· was written on a shirt which I once saw for a second, or was it.

But today brought a big change. The first person wanted to come by and see us. In social distancing mode he said, to drink a glass of wine. This is information. Check, and re-check. Let’s get updown.

Dear friends,
However much previous iterations may have joyfully detoured, escaping the suggestion of an introduced preoccupation, slipping into other orbits, we did not enter into this issue with a central theme. #19’s prefered entry into this nominally new decade is with a de-centred face—including a slight shift/glitch in our format that’s been around since Henrik and Nikola set re-start on the magazine. Borrowed from the new or old, or projecting an altogether non-face, this might be a mask if we’re to take Jack Smith’s lead. If it has organs that better sense the world around it differently, these might be submerged, sensing other spaces, as Nora Schultz’s cover and contribution reminds us. Swimming throughout these pages, fragments of surfacing whales make contact with a conversation between women who talk about women; confront the social deviations of a (dis)behaving inside outsider; locate the violence of a cage designed for a worker’s optimized productivity from a distance… & even senses a lamenting allegory about dogs in a desert without language. Before returning to what lies beneath the surface, leaving it for the activities of painters and poets.
