NEW — Art & Humanities MAGIC An interesting light is shed on this by a famous insight of the Jewish-German philosopher Walter Benjamin. He sensed the turning of the tide when photography and film made it possible to reproduce artworks mechanically. Without the need for human hands, pictures could now be infinitely copied and shared. The human factor was taken out of the production process, paradoxically right at the time when art, thanks to the new technical possibilities, could, for the first time, show real life. In a brazen tribute to transience ‘the movies’ set still lifes in motion, as if by magic. And in front of the camera newlyweds no longer flirted with eternity, like the Arnolfinis, but with the flash of the moment. At last, the here and now could be captured in images. Or so it seemed. Because in spite of all this newly gained dynamics, Benjamin observed, something was also lost in this technical reproduction: the aura of the artwork. In his 1936 essay on the artwork Benjamin described the aura as ‘the unique phenomenon of a distance, however close it may be’. To him, that distance was linked to the origin and particular history of the artwork and the tradition to which it belongs. As a human artefact, the art object confronts us with the here and now of its originality, but it

Eind maart ontving ik een opmerkelijk bericht van een collega: ‘Ik gebruik geen Teams of Skype. Ik zou het overleg liever uitstellen.’ Heerlijk! Klein verzet in vreemde tijden. Aan de universiteiten loopt nu alles digitaal, van administratie tot lesgeven en vergaderen. Uiteraard is het fantastisch dat het onderwijs in volle crisis kan voortdraaien. Toch deel ik met veel collega’s de hoop dat deze crisis en haar digitale oplossingen niet het begin inluiden van een nieuw tijdperk. Want met het vooruitzicht dat ook volgend jaar nog veel online zal worden lesgegeven, lijkt de lang gevreesde coup van het afstandsonderwijs plots erg dichtbij. Er valt namelijk veel winst te boeken met de digitalisering van onderwijs, zowel op het financiële als op het praktische vlak. Minder inzet van personeel (eenmaal opgenomen gaat dat ene college gerust wel een tijdje mee) en minder verplaatsingen. Hoewel ik voor het ecologische aspect van dat laatste argument niet ongevoelig ben, vrees ik dat de menselijke prijs in dit geval te hoog is. Digitalisering raakt aan de kern van het onderwijs. Online lesgeven is geen leven.

Tijdens het coronahoogtij stuurde een vriendin een filmpje van haar vader achter de piano. Hoewel ik niet zoveel met klassieke muziek heb, greep het me naar de keel. De melancholie van het opgevoerde stuk, Sergej Rachmaninovs Lilacs, had daar zeker iets mee te maken, maar het was toch vooral het gestuntel van de al wat oudere concertpianist dat raakte. Begrijp me niet verkeerd. Voorzover ik dat kan inschatten was de uitvoering feilloos. Aandoenlijk was de onbeholpenheid waarmee de man een smartphone installeerde om zijn eigen concert te filmen. Maar het was toch vooral de onbeholpen blik frontaal naar de camera na zijn opvoering. Toen brak er iets. Wat zei die blik? Wie miste deze pianist? Zijn naasten? Zijn kinderen, kleinkinderen? Een publiek? Het moet bevreemdend voelen om voor zo’n levenloos ding te spelen. Jongeren – en eigenlijk allang niet meer alleen jongeren – doen nochtans niets anders dan zichzelf te portretteren. Creatief of niet, hun reëel bestaan lijkt van hun online verschijning af te hangen. Levende kunst – of het nu om een theater-, muziekuitvoering of een beeldendekunsttentoonstelling gaat – valt echter morsdood zonder livepubliek. De uitvoerende kunstenaar blijft verweesd achter wanneer die niet met levende lichamen kan resoneren. Een kunstwerk hangt er maar verloren bij wanneer het niet in een zaal kan vibreren. Covid-19 raakte dan ook het hart

ENG: The Covid-19 crisis teaches us how priceless human nearness is. Art and education can’t do without it either. Like works of art, people lose their aura when kept at digital arm’s length. Art is lifeless when it can’t resonate with bodies. In Nearness, Marlies De Munck and Pascal Gielen diagnose a new reality. Only culture marks the difference between surviving and living.

Shame! and Masculinity Ernst van Alphen (ed.)

ERNST VAN ALPHEN is a cultural analyst and professor of Literary Studies at the Leiden University Centre for the Arts in Society. He is the curator of the exhibition ‘Shame! and Masculinity’ at H401 in Amsterdam, opening in October 2020.

Since the MeToo movement, masculine exercise of power, and sexual abuse have been widely brought under close scrutiny. The focus on ‘toxic’ masculinity impacts our perception of male sexuality, which substantially influences the self-image and self-esteem of men. Men are being shamed by others for their transgressive and contemptuous attitudes; and they feel intrinsically ashamed of their own wrong-doings or of the virulent patterns and traditions of Western manhood. This book explores both positions. It looks at the representation of male sexuality, nudity, fatherhood, male violence, rape, fascism and virility, men and war. It shows works of art that deal with the intricacies and contradictions of these socio-cultural constructs and realities. Shame! and Masculinity is hybrid in terms of genre, combining scholarly essays with short stories, personal testimonies, and provocative and intimate artist’s contributions. It stimulates reflection on shame in collusion with masculinity, from male as well as female perspectives. Thus it encourages us to reimagine these issues that simultaneously play a role in society, in our own experience, in our history, and in our own bodies and being.

SHAME! and Masculinity Ernst van Alphen 1. Eve Kosofsky Sedgwick, Touching Feeling: Affect, Pedagogy, Performativity. Durham 2003, Duke University Press, p. 36

Recent Me-Too scandals have inflicted two powerful affects on people: anger and shame. Those two affects are intimately related, because anger is often expressed by inflicting shame on the person to whom the anger is directed, as in “shame on you!” We punish people by making them shameful. Whereas the former affect of anger and “shame on you!” is directed against the perpetrators, the affect of shame is much more difficult to locate. It can be experienced by victims, bystanders, as well as perpetrators, and people who identify with one of these positions. But because of the fact that Me-Too perpetrators are most often male, the affect of shame is especially felt by men. In order to broaden this and better understand how masculinities have been shaped by feelings of shame, this book as well as the exhibition in the context of which this book is published, will explore the different manifestations of shame, in intimate relation with its repercussions on masculinity. Cultural analyst Eve Sedgwick has explained the nature, origin and effect of shame most clearly: The shame response, when it appears, represents the failure or absence of the smile of contact, a reaction to the loss of feedback from others, indicating social isolation and signalling the need for relief of that situation.1 Because of the fact that the relationality with the other person is broken or no longer under control, a painful individuation is the outcome. This implies that shame

The PLURAL series focuses on how the intersections between identity, power, representation and emancipation, play out in the arts and in cultural practices. The volumes in this series aim to do justice to the plurality of voices, experiences and perspectives in society and in the arts and to address the history and present and future meaning of these positions and their interrelations. PLURAL brings together new and critical insights from cultural and social researchers, theorists, artists, arts professionals and activists.

This tradition has become standard, so that this pose or gesture has become completely ‘normal’ and naturalized. As a result, one does not recognize it anymore as a specific pose or gesture: it seems natural. The question that arises is: how is femininity constructed by means of this gesture, since this gesture is not at all natural? As I already said, in Western art the female nude has a much later origin than the male nude, a discrepancy of four centuries. The differences between the male nude and female nude are striking. From the archaic period we know the so-called kouroi, athletic young men. These idealized figures depict men as young, naked and heroic. The corresponding korai, in contrast, are dressed in elaborate draperies. Salomon formulates the difference between kouroi and korai as follows: The male figure is portrayed as coherent and rational from within; the female figure is portrayed as attractive from without; the male body is dynamically explored as an internal logic, organic unity, the female body is treated as an external surface for decoration. (71)

5. See Norman Bryson, “Géricault and masculinity”, in Norman Bryson, Michel Holly and Keith Moxey, eds.,Visual Culture: Images and Interpretations. (Hanover NH 1994: Wesleyan University Press), pp 228-259

The fact that an idealized notion of youthful nakedness was exclusively reserved for the male subject has a lot to do with the Greek definition of beauty. Beauty was an exclusively male attribute and has an important role in male homosexual desire, which was privileged. So, men are depicted fully naked, their penises are exhibited without any restrictions, not covered as the venus pudica does with her pubic area. But what characterizes the Greek and Roman traditions of the male nude, is that the penis is slightly reduced in size. This is of course a difficult issue, because of the underlying norm: what is the standard size of a penis? Unstable as penises are, opinions about what the standard size is can differ. But in art history the established idea is that classical penises are reduced in size. In general, that is correct, because in the tradition of the Greek male nude impressively big penises do not exist in idealized depictions of men.5 Of course, also in classical art men are sometimes depicted with a grotesquely big penis, but those representations are not idealized, rather, comical. In order to represent male beauty convincingly the penis has to be reduced in size.

CLAUDIA MAREIS is a design researcher and cultural scientist with a background in design practice. She is professor for design history and theory at the FHNW Academy of Art and Design in Basel. NINA PAIM is a Brazilian curator, researcher, designer, and educator, based in Basel. Paim holds an MA in design research from HKB Bern. She has taught and lectured worldwide.

Design Struggles critically assesses the complicity of design in creating, perpetuating and reinforcing social, political, and environmental problems—both today and in the past. The book proposes to brush the discipline against the grain, by problematizing Western notions of design, fostering situated, decolonial, and queer-feminist modes of disciplinary self-critique. In order to reimagine design as an unbound, ambiguous, and unfinished practice, this publication gathers a diverse array of perspectives, ranging from social and cultural theory, design history, design activism, sociology, anthropology, critical and political studies, with a focus on looking at design through the intersections of gender, culture, ethnicity and class. It combines robust scholarly insight with engaging and accessible modes of conveyance and storytelling by bringing together an urgent and expansive array of voices and views from those engaged in struggles with, against or around the design field.

Forces of Art investigates the way in which artists, artworks and cultural organizations affect people and their social environments, and explores how cases of creative practice have been operational in empowering people, communities, and societies in their given contexts. It is a dense, multi-layered, polyvocal compendium of current thinking about the impact of art on civil society and social change, and contains a large number of essays and case studies located all over the world, from Central Asia to Meso and Latin America, from Africa to Central Europe, from South and South-East Asia to the Middle East. The driving force is the shared concern and responsibility for societies worldwide, with regards to culture and the well-being of its communities. Considering the question of how art can be consequential, the book challenges the reader to think beyond art as representation, as merely aesthetical, or as simply an object or commodity. Instead, it stirs thinking of art in terms of a force that has the ability to transform.

Social matter, social design challenges the way we look at, think of, and interact with the social world by emphasising the role of materiality. This enlarged field for engagement demands that design incorporates a more nuanced and complex reading of how the social is intertwined with the material, which confronts the often reductive or simplistic notion of ‘social design’, and offers novel forms of critical and meaningful engagement at a time of mounting social contradictions. The essays in this book explore and unveil uncanny, disconcerting or discordant connections, bricolages, assumptions or breaches at critical junctures for transformation. They are centred around four major themes: the body; earth; the political; and technology.

GABRIELLE KENNEDY is an Amsterdam-based design journalist. She is currently editor-inchief of DAMN° Magazine and has contributed to many publications on design, and education.

Solid research skills are crucial for artists and designers if they are to contribute viable and alternative ways of thinking to counter the dangerous and pervasive neoliberal forces influencing the globe. How can research in art academies find a wider context? How to select topics, how to build up processes and find results, how to reflect on the work and how to relate to the wider world? Many of the projects presented here change the angle, alter the understanding, and open up new possibilities in the hunt to discover what is not yet known or understood. These ways of exploring, thinking, making, and reflecting provide feedback to the real world of culture, industry, housing, education, politics, public space, advertising, and science. This embrace of research strives for a more transdisciplinary way forward, outside the bubble of graduation shows, gallery openings, peer feedback, and funding cycles. This approach both contributes to and advances knowledge in a complex, networked environment. The projects are structured into twelve topical themes and each is embedded in a recent news story that positions how that topic is being discussed in the mainstream press. Each chapter ends with a response from an academic who was invited to reflect on how the research fits with their own thinking.

The global outbreak of what is commonly called ‘the coronavirus’ has shaken and thrown up plenty of dust. The idea is to put a finger on a moment where neoliberal restructuring and accelerating mediatisation starts to sink in, for those previously too comfortable, distracted, or busy to notice, that they are subjected to neoliberal and terrestrial forces outside of their control (be it the climate, the stock market, viruses, or complex supply chains that rely on a myriad of taken-for-granted material conditions that can be disrupted), and that the agency we have for changing our world for the better requires creativity and courage outside of traditional notions of politics. A new form of political power is emerging, as Adam Curtis explains in “Hyper Normalisation”.

Toen ging ik ertegenin.” Dat ging niet goed. “Mijn broer zei dat ik moest oprotten, en dat hij zich ervoor schaamde dat ik onderdeel was van ‘hun’ familie.

ENG: Who are you, who do you want to be, and what do you need to do to get there? We are constantly pushed to lead the perfect life. The media present us with a picture of an existence in which we’re rich, beautiful, happy and successful. Our identities used to be shaped by our communities, families, and friends, but today, in the online era, we’re expected to write our own success stories on social media platforms. We design our own identity, create our own image and present ourselves in the way we want to be seen. The various imaginative methods and ideas for upgrading oneself—by dieting to achieve the perfect body, transforming your talents into a successful business, or finding bliss by meeting a new love—are seen as new forms of creativity, or Self-Design. Help Your Self is an inspiration book to design your perfect self and shows you how to get started. At the same time, it reflects on the self-help industry as a relatively new phenomenon.

No School Manifesto opens up possibilities to start experimenting. It is not an exhaustive analysis of the approach, as No School is constantly evolving. Key concepts, values and attitudes such as ‘Curiosity’, ‘Magnetism’ and ‘Zigzag’ are explored through an A-Z Lexicon, and are complemented by illuminating examples of students’ work. An explanation of the urgency of No School, and an essay on the fundamental value of creativity provide introductory context to the book. The overarching Manifesto summarizes what the No School movement and the book stand for. No School Manifesto is a book that serves as a key reference and inspiration for people working in (creative) education, ranging from teachers and school leaders at informal, secondary and vocational education and academies to museum educators, artists (in the broadest sense of the word), policy makers, and everyone who supports education and has an interest in developing new perspectives through creativity.

A Movement of Creative Education

No School is a movement that wants to open up the meaning of learning and fundamentally questions traditional education, through creativity. Curiosity, experimentation, unrestricted thinking, making and developing are basic elements of all forms of learning and living together. In the current educational system these values are regularly overshadowed by rules, legislation, bureaucracy, a unitary approach, and little attention to the intrinsic inquisitiveness of both the student and the teacher. No School is a growing movement that together with the creative field wants to provide space for experiment, flexibility, cooperation, ‘wild’ thinking, looking ahead; experimenting off the beaten track with different forms of learning, in which creativity is the key concept.

Interview by Sanne Kersten

What relation do arts assignments have to your design practice?

Who are your ar ‘heroes’ or sour

I really strive to elicit critical thinking, and to bring social, political, and environmental discussions into the realm of design and the classroom. Therefore, my assignments usually revolve around problematizing the role of design and its entanglements with larger power structures, and systems of oppression. In my experience, design education in Europe, and especially in Switzerland, tends to happen as if design existed in a vacuum, dangerously disconnected from the world at large. In my teaching practice, I try to counter to this.

Phone Sculptures Make a phone sculpture with your class.

Breaki Bounda

Jen Delos Reyes Chicago, IL, USA

In 2016 I began to institute a new activity at the start of my classes to address the increasing use of cell phones by students. I found a creative, fun, and participatory solution to this problem: the phone sculpture. At the beginning of each class I would share a Fluxus inspired ‘score’ that we would create together by using our cell phones. The sculpture would remain until the end of the class. A selection of these instructions: #5 Exquisite Corpse: Each person is assigned a part of the body so that the total number of people equals the necessary parts to construct a figure. Each person searches an image for their assigned part, and the phones are arranged to make an exquisite corpse. #6 After Mondrian: Class selects a Mondrian painting to recreate. Each person is assigned either primary red, blue, yellow, or white, and fills their screen with that colour. Phones are placed together to recreate the painting. #8 After F�lix Gonz�lez-Torres: Introduce the class to the work of F�lix Gonz�lez-Torres. Search images of his candy spills and enlarge a detail on each phone. Stack phones in corner to create a spill. #9 Sculpture Garden: Each person searches an image of their favourite example of public sculpture. Class goes outside and arranges the phones as a mini outdoor sculpture garden. 252

Wicked Arts Assig


NEW — Arts, Creativity and Education

Emiel Heijnen, Melissa Bremmer (eds.)

Wicked Arts Assignments are bold, unusual, contrary, funny, poetical, inspiring, socially committed, or otherwise challenging. Everyone who teaches the arts knows them: the assignment that is seemingly simple but which challenges participants, students and pupils to the max. Many artists and arts teachers have that singular, personal, often-used assignment in which everything comes together: their artistic vision, their pedagogical approach and their love for certain techniques or methods. The almost hundred arts assignments collected here connect to the visual arts, performance, theatre, music and design, but more importantly: they encourage cross-disciplinarity. They reflect themes and ways of working in contemporary arts, offering opportunities to learn about ourselves, the arts and the world. The assignments can be carried out in various contexts: from primary schools to higher education, from home to the (online) community, and from Bogotá to Istanbul. They are meant to spark the imagination of both teachers and students, contributing to new, topical educational and artistic practices. Complemented by a theoretical framework and interviews with experts in contemporary arts and education.

Multiculturalism is defined in relation to monoculturalism. Multiculturalism and pluralism presuppose a shared culture with shared values and convictions about, for example, openness, democracy, equality, and so on. Multiculturalism assumes a monoculture of views and attitudes. Being able to deal with ambiguities, differences and incertitudes is the outcome of a learning process and thus of cultivation. And for this cultivation of deviations and paradoxes art has played a pivotal role since modernity. In this book, we want to give stage to artists, thinkers and institutional practices that are navigating this border, who dare to play with the rules of a broader society and thus generate ambiguity ‘at large’.

Antennae-Arts in Society Series

This series maps the interaction between changes in society and cultural practices. It looks upon the arts as ‘antennae’, feelers for the cultural interpretation and articulation of topical political, economic, social, technological or environmental issues. It is a peer-reviewed book series that validates artistic, critical, speculative and essayistic writing as an academic publishing method. Publications in the Antennae series contain essays, theoretical explanations, socio-cultural explorations, activist calls, practice-based research, and artist's contributions.

↑ Demolition of the Robin Hood Gardens housing estate, by Alison and Peter Smithson (completed 1972), London, © Amy Frearson

Architecture has always been found in a space between its economic and cultural values. As distinct from the intrinsic values attributed to the visual and performing arts, literature and music, architecture's values are often seen to be compromised by, or contingent upon, forces outside of the discipline—on property prices, real estate markets and the vicissitudes of local and global economies. Such intersections of cultural and economic values are especially conspicuous in architectural heritage where conflicts between values are most publicly and passionately contested. Valuing Architecture is not concerned with arguments for or against the cultural value of architecture and heritage per se but, rather, with the different sites and occasions where such values are bestowed, exchanged and come into conflict. It brings together a collection of essays that tackle concrete cases, both historical and contemporary, to explore how the values of architecture intersect, and what is at stake for architecture in the economics of culture.

Context in architecture • Innovative and engaged design • Urban interventions • Interdisciplinary design

ALREADY ANNOUNCED — Urban and social fabric

Rewriting Architecture explores the potential of place, and considers the creativity of inhabitants and users, the power of the existing social and urban fabric — the Tabula Scripta condition— to respond to needs and urgent topics. It poses questions that deal with the multi-layered facets of our time: How can the existing context be reinterpreted, understood, appreciated and further developed? What does architecture mean in times of scarcity? How can architecture anticipate new developments based on the existing situation, from the ageing population and social segregation to climate change? It also challenges the role of the contemporary architect in a field of players and powers, who is faced by urgent existing issues as a starting point in design research. The 11 Actions show compelling examples from various places and design practices worldwide (from Asia to Africa, to Europe and the US). The editors relate these challenges to a wide array of makers and thinkers: architects, other design professionals, and specialists working in art, biology, fashion, ecology, pop culture and philosophy. 10 + 1 Actions refer to the book chapters and actions: Reimagine; Eliminate; Obscure; Overlay; Restart; Copy; Continue; Reconfigure; Repurpose; Densify; Abstain Richly illustrated with many images in colour and b/w.

The People’s Action against the Nordic Áltá-Guovdageaidnu Waterway (c. 1978–82, Sapmi, Norway) radically shook the course of history in the region. Let the River Flow takes this eco-Indigenous rebellion as its starting point reflecting upon events at the time and their correlations with international artists’ eco actions today. It is conceived as a source book, addressing the most important political, cultural and artistic reverberations at the time, including innovations in political organizing, new influences of Indigenous thinking on contemporary politics, and the centrality of artists within the constellation of these activities.

Neighbourhoods for the Future is based on the conviction that the current ecological crisis will change the face of the city. The neighbourhood is situated at the scale between the home and the city. It has the potential to turn our cities into more humane environments and add to their resilience and social capacity. This book provides a new perspective on the relationship between participants, resources and systems so that urbanites and policymakers are inspired and empowered to change their own communities into neighbourhoods of and for the future.

Maar wát is het waar iedereen aanspraak op zou kunnen of mogen maken? En vooral ook, wáár dan? Wat is rechtvaardig bij de bepaling van wie wat krijgt in de stad en waar? ‘De rechtvaardige stad’ wordt ten onrechte vaak gezien als een concept dat voor slechts één uitleg vatbaar is. Voortdurend worden verschillende perspectieven nagestreefd die strijdig met elkaar zijn. Vier van die perspectieven – de welvarende stad, de egale stad, de voorzienende stad en de vrije stad – worden in dit essay uitgewerkt en doorgeredeneerd op hun toepassing in stedelijk beleid.

Kiosk in de stad Oktober 2020

Iedereen kent ze en je komt ze overal tegen: kiosken. Oorspronkelijk waren dit kleine, open paviljoens in stad, dorp of tuin om een glas thee te drinken of een ijsje te eten. Inmiddels kennen we de krantenkiosk, de snackkiosk, de bloemenkiosk, informatiekiosk, en zien we de kiosk steeds vaker een buurtfunctie vervullen in de publieke ruimte. In Kiosk in de stad vertellen de auteurs over de ontstaansgeschiedenis, architectuur en verscheidenheid en wat de kiosk voor de stedelijke en sociale samenhang betekent. Dit verhaal wordt afgewisseld met ‘kioskportretten’, over uitbaters en klanten, over plek en functie, gelardeerd met prachtig beeldmateriaal.

Visual art is conceived as a practice, able to generate encounters, ways of life, and historical narratives. This book seeks to trace a genealogy of trans-local practices, with histories and methods that link to networks of friendship and solidarity, and of the visual arts as participating in a longer history of contact between individuals motivated by shared interests and struggles.
