MZIN RESTOCK: REM KOOLHAAS — DELIRIOUS NEW YORK (ARCH+)

Der Klassiker von Rem Koolhaas in deutscher Übersetzung
Manhattan ist der Schauplatz für das Endstadium der westlichen Zivilisation. Durch die Bevölkerungsexplosion und die Invasion von neuen Technologien wurde Manhattan von 1850 an ein mythisches Laboratorium für die Erfindung und Erprobung eines revolutionären Lebensstils: der Kultur des Staus.
Delirious New York, 1978 zuerst erschienen, ist eine polemische Erforschung dieses Manhattans: Es dokumentiert das symbiotische Verhältnis zwischen seiner sich ständig verändernden metropolitanen Kultur und der einzigartigen Architektur, die durch sie entstand – dennoch vertritt dieses Buch die Auffassung, daß nicht selten die Architektur die Kultur erzeugt.
Dieses Buch enthüllt die Beschaffenheit und den Zusammenhang der scheinbar beziehungslosen Episoden von Manhattans Urbanismus: Es interpretiert New York als das Produkt einer nie formulierten Bewegung, dem Manhattanismus, dessen wahres Programm so unerhört war, daß es, um verwirklicht zu werden, niemals offen ausgesprochen werden konnte.
Delirious New York ist das retroaktive Manifest für Manhattans Architektur. Es entwirft Theorien, Taktiken und Tricks, um die Sehnsüchte von Manhattans kollektivem Unterbewußtsein als Realitäten im Raster nachzuweisen.

MZIN RESTOCK: THE SPIRITED ART OF SISTER CORITA (FOUR CORNERS BOOKS)

Admired by Charles and Ray Eames, Buckminster Fuller and Saul Bass, Sister Corita Kent was one of the most innovative and unusual pop artists of the 1960s, battling the political and religious establishments, revolutionizing graphic design and encouraging the creativity of thousands of people – all while living and practicing as a catholic nun in California.

MZIN NEWS: FAQ #1 (EDITION DAMIANI)

The first volume will be published to coincide with the tenth anniversary edition of 'Le Dictateur', and will then be published annually. 'FAQ', or Frequently Asked Questions, references an attempt to synthesize a recurrent flow, a tenor, an ideal visual representation of a given and very subjective “now.” Born out of an acute image consumption disorder, 'FAQ' reflects the mental assimilation of a relentless roving within physical and virtual art spaces: from galleries to Tumblr accounts, museums, or artists studios. It can be seen as a portable exhibition, a show on paper, a project of restitution, a hybrid object that you can leaf and scroll through. Far from being a rational enterprise, its lack of rules, hierarchy, order—or concept for that matter—make it expressly and brazenly as personal and biased as possible. 'FAQ' reflects the obsessive mannerism of its authors.

The first issue includes works by Thomas Bayrle, Neil Beloufa, Caroll Dunham, Andra Ursuta, Jon Rafman, Kathy Grannan, Llyn Foulkes, Camille Henrot, Steven Shaerer, Korakrit Arunanondchai, and Judith Bernstein, among many others.

MZIN NEWS: LESS IS A BORE — REFLECTIONS ON MEMPHIS (SPECTOR BOOKS)

Enamoured of decorative ornament, posing a challenge to all-powerful modernism, and drawing inspiration from the realm of architecture, the provocative designs of Italian group Memphis (1981–1988) caused something of a stir. Less Is a Bore: Reflections on Memphis contextualizes the creative universe of the designers around Ettore Sottsass in relation to the works of artists Raymond Barion, Eva Berendes, Barbara Kasten, Graham Little, and Tobias Rehberger. The book outlines their shared stylistic history in design and art, which has been given impetus by the phenomena of mass culture as well as by fashion and the history of culture and is reflected in an obsessive enthusiasm for the expressive possibilities of surfaces. The book classifies Memphis in the context of the design, art, and pop culture of the 20th and 21st centuries. The Book is published in conjunction with the exhibition of the same name at KAI 10 | Arthena Foundation Dusseldorf (29 October 2016 – 11 February 2017).

MZIN NEWS: VIKTOR HACHMANG — BOOK OF VOID (LANDFILL EDITIONS)

Debut short-form comics publication by Dutch illustrator Viktor Hachmang. Book of Void deals with the romantic notion of destroying precious artworks and aims to explore its inherent logic – what is it like to live in a world ruled by fear in which a static work of art can become a harmful incomprehensible “Thing” that must be destroyed?

Book of Void is a fictionalized account of two subsequent slashings of monumental minimal artworks at the Stedelijk Museum and takes cues from The Book of Five Rings, Miyamoto Musashi’s classic handbook of samurai swordsmanship and philosophy. Book of Void poses the question if such acts of violence are truly pointless, or do they possess an innate spiritual beauty?

MZIN RESTOCK: THE HAAS BROTHERS — 1 (DAMIANI)

A 2014 Design Observer / AIGA 50 Books selection.
Texts by Laura Dern, Vincent Gallo, The Haas Brothers. 

ISBN: 9788862083737

In a meteoric rise to fame, the Los Angeles–based Haas Brothers have garnered international accolades for their set design and props for print and video, one-of-a-kind fashion works and their highly original furniture and object designs. Their exploration and mastery of materials—ranging from brass, bronze, porcelain and fur to highly technical resins and polyurethane—matched with their insatiable curiosity and remarkable visual intelligence, sets them apart as designers. This monograph—the first on the brothers—focuses on their projects, including their Hex series of handworked bronze tile pieces, their Accretion series of unique ceramic vessels, the Beast series of bronze and wool anthropomorphic furniture and a new body of works that engages ideas about arousal and eroticism in playful, sculptural forms. The book features color photographs as well as writings and drawings by Simon and Nikolai Haas that convey their humor and eloquence while illuminating the inspirations, theories and processes behind the works, plus images of the Haas Brothers’ studio and practice.

Twin brothers Nikolai and Simon Haas (born 1984), known as The Haas Brothers, got their start in design by studying stone carving and construction under their father in their hometown of Austin, Texas. In September 2010, the brothers were commissioned to collaborate on a project by renowned architectural firm Johnston Marklee, at Sony Studios in Los Angeles, and “The Haas Brothers” as a studio practice was born. In the two years since, the brothers have continued to grow their design studio and spend their time prototyping forms and experimenting with materials, surface textures and processes. In 2013 they created a limited edition furniture collection for Versace. In their current design works, The Haas Brothers explore aesthetic and formal themes related to nature, science fiction, psychedelia and color theory.

MZIN NEWS: HARVARD DESIGN MAGAZINE #43 — SHELF LIVE (US)

The more stuff we accumulate, the more space we need to store it all. Vast portions of the landscape are claimed and governed by spaces of storage, their maintenance, and the goods that move through them—or remain buried within them indefinitely.
This issue of Harvard Design Magazine investigates and unpacks the contents, containers, and systems of storage that organize our world. 
Storage is the aggregation and containment of the material and immaterial stuff of culture; but also the safeguarding—or hoarding—of energy and tools for some imagined future purpose. How does all this stuff mask or overcompensate for economic and ecological bankruptcy? Is storage about greed or need? Storage, perhaps, is everything we can live without but insist on living with.
“Shelf Life” explores what’s inside the box (shed, tank, urn, vault, crypt, crate, case, pot, bag, vat, morgue, safe, bin, archive, warehouse, cabinet, cellar, cemetery, depository, locker, freezer, landfill, library). Even as we attempt to reduce and recycle, the stuff that we dispose of also needs to be stored. Where do we put it? Our planet is now a saturated receptacle. This warehouse is full, and we’re all inside it.

MZIN NEWS: VESTOJ #7 — ON MASCULINITIES (UK)


Simone de Beauvoir once said that ‘one is not born a woman, but rather becomes one,’ and many would argue that the same could be said about being a man. The social nature of masculinity is a pattern of practice, and one rife with complexity and contradiction. Today, it seems more apt to talk about ‘masculinities’ in the plural, to underscore the many ways in which one can be a man, or become one. What we have thought of as ‘masculine’ has changed considerably during different historical periods and inside different cultures, and the social position of masculinity has helped shape not just the gender order by which we continue to define ourselves, but also a hierarchy of masculinities that encourages certain ways of being a man over others. What we consider masculinity is sustained by men, but also by women: how women interact with boys and men continues to have a considerable influence on what we regard as masculine. While the concept of the human mind as a tabula rasa is no longer fashionable, and most today agree that the answer to ‘what makes a man’ lies somewhere between the influence of nature and nurture, the society in which we live continues to have a considerable and ever changing effect on how we perceive ourselves.
There is of course no natural link between a garment and a certain gender, but nevertheless sartorial transgressions of our moral and social codes remain rare. A telling example of how we as a society and culture value symbols of masculinity is the adoption of trousers by women in the West in the early twentieth century. Though women had to face ridicule and resistant legislators (it took until 1993 for women to be allowed to wear trousers on the U.S. Senate floor) we have, after all, had an easier time adopting these, and other, masculine coded garments than men have had embracing potent feminine symbols. Women’s espousal of trousers may have represented an important readjustment of the definition of femininity, but it hasn’t necessarily led to a change in the existing balance of power. ‘Default man’ is still at the top of the food chain, and men in skirts should be prepared to field questions about their masculinity.
How to be the ‘right’ kind of man is a battleground for many, and some might say that when it comes to manhood, man is warden and prisoner alike. Hegemonic masculinity stipulates how to act, dress and talk ‘like a man,’ and men who don’t want to risk being shunned have to position themselves in relation to it. Redefining this masculine ideal, and the power, legitimacy and privilege that goes along with it, takes time and concerted effort. Alternative masculinities are regularly subordinated to uphold the type we have become used to thinking of as ‘heroic:’ stoic, tough and honourable – the type that wears the trousers, the type that doesn’t cry. Considering masculinities in the plural might be one way to better understand how dominant masculinity is constructed, and why alternatives are so often rejected in order to uphold its status as ‘the real thing.’
What, then, is the difference between maleness and masculinity? To the Romans, the separation between virility and manliness was crucial. To possess virilitas, a Roman had to display, not just shrewdness and strength, but also self-control. Being virile, as opposed to being male, was a learned quality. Today we no longer refer to an accomplished man as ‘virile,’ but in many ways we continue to think of male identity as a combination of discipline and force. Pick up a copy of any men’s magazine for further proof: every tip about how to get the right abs, money or women seems to hinge on the notion that successful men control others by controlling themselves.
Lately there have been cries about masculinity ‘in crisis’ and the emergence of a ‘new man’ – an idea that the fashion industry in particular has been quick to capitalise on. What should this new man wear? In a shifting landscape where masculinity is being supplanted by masculinities, surely another wardrobe is being called for? But while men try on pussy-bow blouses and extra-long sleeves, sceptics point out that the catalyst for this plethora of new looks might be more closely related to the ever-increasing commodification of everyday life and advances in marketing and advertising, than it is to any kind of new man.
Whether modern masculinity is a construct, and men’s fashion a tool intended to keep the wheels of consumption turning is one of the questions we would like to raise with this issue ofVestoj. But we also aim to explore the making of masculinities and the experience of men’s bodies, as well as how people who identify as masculine are portrayed along with how they choose to portray themselves, both in public and in private. We will look at how we express masculinity through appearance, and how changes in fashion have been influenced by a perception of gender constantly in flux. We will ask why blue is for boys, how machismo affects fashion and why it’s so hard to shake the whiff of absurdity that stubbornly clings to male pin-ups. Typically male coded garments will get a close reading, and we will apply an ethnographic perspective to how men shop. All the while, we will ask, in as many ways as possible: what do we mean when we say ‘the clothes make the man’?
In his Symposium Plato wrote that we were all hermaphrodites until the gods decided to split us in two. That men have feminine traits and women masculine ones has entered the mainstream by now, but even so, when it comes to our appearance we continue to favour convention. Curiously, even unorthodox displays of masculinity ultimately point to their deviation from the norm, and as such they reinforce the standard. Even the man in a skirt is always already not a man in a suit.

MZIN RESTOCK: TYPE PLUS (UNIT EDITIONS)

type Plus investigates the practice of combining typography with images to increase effectiveness, potency and visual impact. Today, graphic designers use type in partnership with graphic elements in ways that turbo charge meaning and impact.

Type plus image – or images – can greatly enhance typographic expression. And letterforms themselves, when redrawn, combined, distorted, or augmented with decorative embellishments, can enhance meaning and lend emotive qualities to all kinds of typographic communication.

By focusing on a host of contemporary practitioners from around the world, Type Plus creates a picture of a new dynamism in typographic expression. The era of type as a passive, semi-invisible holder of meaning is long gone.

Includes interviews with Non-Format, TwoPoints.Net and Erik Brandt.

MZIN NEWS: SLEEK #52 (D) — FASHION NOW, ART FOREVER

Welcome to the winter 2016 issue of SLEEK
SLEEK dedicates issue 52 to The New Native, a term that refers to people who look at home not as a geographic location, but rather as set of friends and relationships, as our EIC Jeni Fulton argues. With a hectic schedule of fashion weeks and travel, our cover star Virgil Abloh from the much-buzzed label Off-White encompasses this concept perfectly. Conversely, “Berlin Calling” focuses on six fashion designers who have chosen to call the German capital home for different reasons. Elsewhere in the magazine, stylist Tess Yopp revisits her childhood home of Moscow in the fashion editorial “On the Margins”; and Michelangelo Pistoletto discusses his career marked by 60 years of artistic rebellion.

MZIN NEWS: MERCE CUNNINGHAM — MUMOK KATALOG (CHARTA)

The central motif for this book is the work of Merce Cunningham and the theoretical and emotional response by writers, artists, dancers and musicians to the milestones in his creative development, from 1944 to 1999.

Born in Centralia, Washington in 1919, Merce Cunningham can be considered the founder of contemporary dance as “a moving image of life”. His innovations in the field of choreography and movement date back to the 1940s, when, after meeting John Cage, Cunningham proposed separating music from dance, then turned to a chance method involving a random montage of movements. His language harmonizes and meshes with the art of Rauschenberg, Johns, Warhol, Stella, Lichtenstein and Nauman. From the 1970s to the present, he has used film, video and computers, which continue to offer him new experimental possibilities.

Neben dem Bauhaus hat wohl keine andere Bewegung der ersten Hälfte des 20. Jahrhunderts unseren Alltag so sehr beeinflusst wie die De-Stijl-Gruppe um Piet Mondrian (1872–1944) und Theo van Doesburg. Mondrian, mit Wassily Kandinsky und Kasimir Malewitsch einer der Gründerväter malerischer Abstraktion, schuf streng geometrische Gemälde, die heute als Ikonen der Moderne gelten. Ihre charakteristische Struktur aus einem schwarzen Raster, in das Flächen in den Grundfarben eingepasst sind, führt längst ein reges Eigenleben in Kunst und Mode, Werbung und Populärkultur.

Sanitation in India is investigated, toilet paper unrolled, nappies reconsidered, and we interview a farmer and a toilet attendant. With Alex Schweder on pissing, Natalie D Kane on nappies, Alice Twemlow on graphic design, plus shitting monarchs, Superflex, and the poo emoji.

MZIN NEWS: ERIK VAN LIESHOUT — THE SHOW MUST EGO ON (WIELS / KOENIG BOOKS)

Structured like a cine-novel, this book uses numerous stills from Die Insel as a visual backbone, into which are inserted three newly commissioned texts:
Dangerous as hell, having that camera on: A conversation about changing the world and saving a cockroach
 – Fucking Good Art
(Nienke Terpsma & Rob Hamelijnck)
Drawing upon their own collaborative and conversation-driven practice, they discuss with Van Lieshout the way that he works together with his partner, with his editor and with the protagonists of his films, to make artworks that are simultaneously generous and egocentric.
I am a genius
(Adrian Searle)
Locating Van Lieshout’s practice at the intersection between art and life, The Guardian’s art critic Adrian Searle contemplates the artist’s ambition and its (at times catastrophic) collision with reality.
In Praise of Folly, or the Possibility of an Island
(Zoë Gray)
Examining his apparently contradictory desire to be politically engaged and to withdraw from society into the pure autonomy of art, Gray’s essay considers Van Lieshout as a satirist, unpacking his humorous exploration of weighty, often controversial topics.
