With its presentation of ten young British artists, the Stadthaus Ulm has initiated a sequence of national and international photography exhibitions that is to carry on the photographic and cinematic tradition of the former Ulmer Hochschule für Gestaltung.

The current interest in British culture is an outgrowth of the flourishing cultural activity in metropolitan centers such as London or Glasgow, which finds its expression a variety of areas, including fashion, music and the visual arts. Many of the artists introduced here have lived for many years in this cultural environment, taking inspiration for their photographic work from everyday life in these metropolitan landscapes. They represent a young generation of artists who use photography to reflect upon the mechanisms of big-city life that enable the diverse ethnic and social urban populations to live together. The issue central to all of their work is the manner in which groups and individuals relate to their environment and to one another within it.

The artists:

Suky Best, Zarina Bhimji, Henry Bond, Don Brown, Martin Cole, Rut Blees Luxemburg, Sophy Rickett, Helen Robertson, David Shrigley

This book presents 123 calling cards of artists (painters, sculptors, photographers, architects, graphic designers, illustrators etc.) from the 18th century to the present day. The facsimiled cards are slipped like bookmarks into a book by several authors on the history of the use of calling cards, the social context in which they were produced, and related historical and fictional narratives. The often unexpected graphic qualities of these personalized objects, each designed to capture an individual identity within the narrow confines of a tiny rectangle card, implicitly recount a history of taste and typographic codes in the West. But this calling card collection also lays the foundations for a microhistory of art, inspired by the Italian microstoria, or a looser narrative that breaks free from geographic contexts and historical periods. We can imagine how social networks were formed before the advent of Facebook, and how artists defined themselves in the social sphere, whether they were students or teachers, dean of the art school or museum curator, founder of a journal, firm, restaurant or political party, and so on. Superimposed on this imaginary or idealized network formed by chance encounters is a living network of students of art or history, historians or anthropologists, librarians, archivists, gallerists, museum curators and artists themselves, the network upon which this pocket museum is constructed. The sheer variety of perspectives and stories brought together here makes this book a prodigious forum for discussion. The carded artists include: Absalon, Anni and Josef Albers, John Armleder, Iain Baxter, Larry Bell, Joseph Beuys, Joseph Binder, Max Bill, Pierrette Bloch, Rosa Bonheur, Irma Boom, Aglaüs Bouvenne, Constantin Brancusi, Marcel Broodthaers, Antonio Canova, Caran d’Ache, A.M.

45 graphic designers, 90 photographs, 10 years of books on contemporary art. This book is based on an invitation to graphic designers to choose two books on contemporary art from the past decade whose design they think is particularly pertinent to the content, to photograph one double-page spread from each book and, if they wish, to comment on their choices. Double Page provides a selection of recent art publications as viewed by graphic designers who are internationally known for their contribution to that field, and offers a glimpse at the role of book design today in our knowledge and understanding of contemporary art. Shedding light on this prevalent relationship between art and graphic design by means of photography, Double Page constitutes an unprecedented document of how graphic designers see the work of their peers and their own practices as an essential part of the editorial process.

SPBN is a book about love/sex/desire/lust/intimacy created with the help of Self Publish, Be Happy’s extended network of contributors. In the spirit of SP,BH’s collective ethos, a call for submissions for “naughty” pictures was launched in March 2011. More than 5,000 photographs from around the world were submitted, by both established artists and young up-and-coming practitioners. SPBN showcases 122 of these photographs by 75 different artists. The photographs, presented in a continuous flux, offer a powerful and uncompromising exploration of contemporary approaches to the themes of sex, desires and taboos within photography. From the surreal to the mundane, from the allusive to the graphic, the images challenge the tradition of erotic photobooks and their very ghettoised approach to desires. Printed in a limited edition of 1,000, each copy of SPBN is unique; art director Antonio de Luca has designed a beautiful ever-changing book, a collection of A4 posters (in the manner of Playboy centrefolds), bound together with a removable elastic band. Each copy will have an accidental sequence of pages, an echo of the fragmented and subversive nature of desire. SPBN will also include a selection of texts (from Plato’s Phaedrus to erotic stories anonymously posted online), and, like an old porn newsletter, will come in a discreet black envelope.

No Waveis the first book to visually chronicle the collision of art and punk in the New York underground of 1976 to 1980. This in depth look at punk rock, new wave, experimental music, and the avant-garde art movement of the 70s and 80s focuses on the true architects of No Wave from James Chance to Lydia Lunch to Glenn Branca, as well as the luminaries that intersected the scene, such as David Byrne, Debbie Harry, Brian Eno, Iggy Pop, and Richard Hell. This rarely documented scene was the creative stomping ground of young artists and filmmakers from Jean-Michel Basquiat to Jim Jarmusch as well as the musical genesis for the post-punk explosions of Sonic Youth and is here revealed for a new generation of fans and collectors. Thurston Moore and Byron Coley have selected 150 unforgettable images, most of which have never been published previously, and compiled hundreds of hours of personal interviews to create an oral history of the movement, providing a never-seen-before exploration and celebration of No Wave.

A coloring book with 28 portraits of Americans who spoke out about the injustices that they say in society,and were persecuted for doing so. As well as a fine portrait to color in, there’s a quote from each notable, and a brief bio; making this informative, as well as entertaining, for all ages (and artistic abilities!)Even better, 50% of all proceeds are being donated to Books To Prisoners, who supply free literature for those incarcerated. The 28 include names you’ll probably know (John Brown, Henry David Thoreau, Geronimo Lucy Parsons, Eugene Debs, Emma Goldman, Ricardo Flores Magon, Margaret Sanger, Helen Keller, Paul Robeson, Fannie Lou Hamer, Audre Lorde, George Jackson, Angela Davis, Assata Shakur, Judi Bari), and some more (unjustly!) obscure (Sylvia Rivera, Fred Hampton, Harvey Milk, Genora Johnson Dollinger, Ned Cobb, Kiyoshi Okamoto, Marian Anderson, Lucy Stone) and well, several more!

accolta di saggi sull’acido lisergico firmati, tra gli altri, da Tim Leary, William Burroughs, Alan Watts. Questo libro fu scritto anni prima che l’LSD diventasse una sostanza illegale e massicciamente consumata dalle giovani generazioni dell’era hippie. Nel 1964, quando La Droga che Dilata la Coscienza fu pubblicato in USA, ad occuparsi dell’LSD erano infatti prevalentemente psichiatri e chimici in ambito accademico. Questa edizione italiana uscì alla fine del 1967; in quei tre anni, in un clima da caccia alle streghe, l’America benpensante era passata al contrattacco, le ricerche accademiche erano state interrotte e studiosi come Tim Leary e Richard Alpert erano stati isolati e privati delle cattedre. Nel volume, gli studiosi (psichiatri, filosofi e scienziati) affrontano il potente allucinogeno dal punto di vista filosofico, antropologico e terapeutico mettendo anche in guardia – lo fa Grinker in special modo – da un uso indiscriminato ed irresponsabile. Sommario: – Ringraziamenti – Prefazione del curatore – Introduzione di Timothy Leary – Cultura e individuo di Aldous Huxley – Gli allucinogeni: giudizio obiettivo di un cronista di Dan Wakefield – Un viaggio nello spazio interno di Alan Harrington – Come modificare il comportamento di Timothy Leary – L’esperienza psichelica: fatto o fantasia? di Alan Watts – Analisi degli effetti clinici degli agenti psicotomimetici di Humphry Osmond – Droghe e religione di Huston Smith – Differenze tra droghe sedative e droghe dilatatrici della coscienza di William S.

Henri Cartier-Bresson is one of the finest image makers of our time. Born in 1908, he studied painting before embarking on a career in photography in the 1930s. In 1940 he was captured by the Germans and spent three years in prisoner-of-war camps before escaping to join the Paris underground. With Robert Capa, David Seymour and others, he founded the photographic agency Magnum in 1947. Since then his work has taken him all over the world – from Europe to India, Burma, Pakistan, China, Japan, Indonesia, Bali, Russia, the Middle East, Cuba, Mexico, the United States and Canada. This new collection of work by Cartier-Bresson, created on the occasion of his ninety-fifth birthday, provides the ultimate retrospective look at a lifetime’s achievement. It includes the first photographs taken by him, a significant number of which have never been published, rarely seen work from all periods of his life, classic photographs that have become icons of the medium, and a generous selection of drawings, paintings and film stills. The book also features personal souvenirs of Cartier-Bresson’s youth, his family and the founding of Magnum. Cartier-Bresson’s extraordinary images are shaped by an eye and a mind legendary for their intelligent empathy and for going to the heart of the matter. This definitive collection of a master photographer’s work will be an essential book for anyone interested in photography – indeed, for anyone interested in the people, places and events of the last century.
