NEW Arts and Knowledge Indigenous Wisdom Connections Governance Holistic Approaches

Catnosat Indigenous Art, Knowledge and Sovereignty

For the first time Sámi artists will present their art and world­ views at the Biennale Arte in Venice, 2022, as a sovereign call representing Sápmi (Sámi homeland that spans Scandinavia and the Kola Peninsula). The Sámi Pavilion is a Čatnosat (= connections, networks) project that revolves around three key elements: trans-generational relations, holistic Sámi knowledge and learning and Sámi spiritual perspectives. This book serves as a project in its own right to provide further reflections on Sámi art and knowledge, considering Sámi notions of non-linear time and the centrality of story-telling, sound and the spoken word. The core of Čatnosat features the art works of The Sámi Pavilion’s artists Pauliina Feodoroff, Máret Ánne Sara and Anders Sunna. Around this are two sections, neither beginnings nor ends. In one, we find an experimental short play and poems, as well as stories bringing political, and Sámi spiritual and philosophical perspectives. The other section includes a dialogue with the artists; an essay high­ lighting the centrality and span of Sámi knowledge creation across the ages, and a glossary of Sámi words pivotal to Sámi ways of being, doing, seeing and thinking, also highlighting the Sámi philosophical relationship to their language. The book is an exercise in Sámification, that highlights the importance today of Indigenous holistic perspectives, and that centres Sámi Indigenous wisdom in all fields of art and living.

This the first time that Sámi artists exclusively represent Sápmi, their Sámi homeland, in a national pavilion at La Biennale di Venezia, and the first time the Sámi are recognized as a nation in a pavilion bearing their name. The project transforming the Nordic Pavilion into the Sámi Pavilion is an act of Indigenous sovereignty that highlights the relationship of the artists to their homeland Sápmi, an area that pre-dates the concept of the Nordic region. It is a symbolic reversal of colonial claims that have sought to erase Sámi land and culture. Their art emphasizes the urgent situation experienced today by many Indigenous people worldwide, concerning self-determina­ tion, deforestation, land and water governance. Following the Sámi custom of learning from elders of the community, the artists received guidance of the following Samí elders: Pauliina Feodoroff by Sámi educator Asta M. Balto; Máret Ánne Sara by reindeer herder and Sámi knowledge bearer Káren E. M. Utsi; and Anders Sunna by juoigi (practitioner of joik, the Sámi musical practice) Ánde Somby.

Solidarity has re-entered the global zeitgeist with resounding force in the last decade, driving new thinking to counter the systemic failures and abuses of our society. The Art and Solidarity Reader considers the agency artists, collectives, and art institutions have in building the radical visions of care and solidarity needed to transform the conditions of our collective existence. Presenting new and historical material, the Reader narrates various micro-histories of artistic solidarity globally from the 1970s to today, in relation to the multiple crises of migration, neo-coloni­ alism, rising radicalization, inter-religious conflicts, class divisions, new technology, heteronormativity, and the environment. It empha­ sizes the centrality of artist-led empathy and personal connectivity in building networks of solidarity and concrete actions that gener­ ate profound transformation in society. Whilst addressing the relevance of the Non-Aligned Move­ ment of the Cold War in generating new forms of artistic solidarity globally, the Reader points towards its successors and, significantly, centres Indigenous perspectives rarely considered when discussing the history of artistic solidarity.

Mix & Stir New Outlooks on Contemporary Art from Global Perspectives

Mix & Stir presents new outlooks on contemporary art from global perspectives, in the challenging format of a cookery book. It intends to encourage studying art beyond national constraints, cultural dominances, and hierarchies: a voyage similar to that of culinary discovery. We bring a variety of tastes and flavours to the table, and break new ground by allowing contrary, queer, idiosyncratic practices and discourses, theories and topics, methods, and concerns to access art in its global dimensions. Researchers, curators and artists with a special interest in this topical issue were invited to present, develop, outline, and contemplate distinct frames of reference, both theoretical and artistic, in order to arrive at a true ‘world art studies’. Their contri­butions are structured in seven thematic fields: Undecidability and Spectatorship, Collectives, Circu­­­lations, Exhibitions, Artists at Work, Postcolonial Perspectives, and Deep Art History. We invite the reader to explore the vast supply of dishes, to taste and test the aromas and to feast. Like cooking prompts chefs to use their creativity and imagination, this book encourages readers to try out new dishes for themselves.

The concern for material existence on our planet is more pressing than ever. Making Matters spells out various roles that visual artists and designers play facing these issues. Col­lective action is necessary and inevitable. Collective action often changes the artist’s identity and ways of working: from individuality and autonomy to collectivity and collaboration, both locally and globally. This has given rise to new kinds of collective art and design practices, based on changed ideas about the meaning of making. Artists work together with nonartists, make products for their local environment and take on multiple identities, such as researcher, community activist, computer hacker, or business consultant. The boundaries between art, design, research and activism become blurred or are dissolved entirely. Making Matters gives insight into art practices that are taking place on all continents. These practices do not conform to a Western concept of art nor to traditional distinctions be­tween art, design, research and activism. The entries in this vocabulary experiment with concepts and keywords of current art practices that may no longer be recognizable as art.

In een competitief bestaan verbergen we onze zwakke plek­ ken. Evaluatiedrift en de voortdurende dwang tot innoveren duwen mensen steeds verder weg in een bolster. Hoe dan ook gaan we allen als knoeiers door het leven, vindt Marlies De Munck. Ze roept daarom op tot openheid en mededogen. Want dat bolsteren hindert je om te raken. En om geraakt te worden. Pascal Gielen houdt een warm pleidooi voor een esthetische kunde: het vermogen via al onze zintuigen een rammelende en fragiele werkelijkheid toch als een same­ nhangend geheel te ervaren. Dat is de potentie van kunst en cultuur: om ons te verzoenen met een chaotisch en kwets­ baar leven.

In a competitive existence we hide our weak spots. Evalua­ tion madness and the constant urge to innovate push people back further and further into a virtual shell. Anyway, we are all just messing about, says Marlies De Munck. She therefore pleads for openness and compassion. Because all this sheltering keeps you from touching. And from being touched. Pascal Gielen warmly advocates an aesthetic skill: the ability to experience, through all our senses, a ram­ shackle and fragile reality and still see it as a coherent whole. Art, theatre, dance, or music can touch us deeply and unexpectedly, show us new connections, and change rigid opinions. That is the power of art and culture: to recon­cile us with life, which can be disjointed and fragile.

Marlies De Munck teaches aesthetics and philosophy of music at the University of Antwerp an she is a member of ARIA. Pascal Gielen is professor of cultural sociology at the Antwerp Research Institute for the Arts (ARIA), University of Antwerp.

AUTHOR/EDITOR Carolyn F. Strauss

Slow Spatial Reader offers a collection of essays about ‘Slow’ approaches to spatial practice and pedagogy from around the world. Its contributors are from twentyfour countries on five continents. Each one brings distinct philosophical and disciplinary approaches— from ‘spatial’ fields like architecture, sculpture, and installation, but also performative, somatic and/or dramaturgical practices—, exploring how we think about and engage with space at a range of scales, tempos, and durations. The essays chronicle projects and processes that amplify tangible and intangible qualities of spatial experience: reaching into the cracks of the body, probing the fuzzy borders of atmospheres, and extending out across both geo­ graphical and epistemological coordinates. The term ‘radical affection’ was coined to unite those diverse approaches in a call for tender acts of individual and collective imagination through which new forms of caring and resilience might emerge. Like its predeces­ sor, Slow Reader (Valiz 2016), this new publication is intended to spur meaningful dialogue between disci­ plines and cultures, inspir­ing not only a different velocity of engaging the world but also critical shifts in consciousness.

Curating Digital Art From Presenting and Collecting Digital Art to Networked Co-Curation

Annet Dekker (ed.)

AUTHOR/EDITOR Annet Dekker

What is the role of the curator when organizing digital art exhibitions in offline and online spaces? Analyzing the influence and impact of curating digital art, the book focuses on how the experi­ ments of curators, artists and designers opened the possibility to reconfigure traditional models and methods for presenting and accessing digital art. In the process, it addresses how web-based practices challenge certain established museolog­ ical values and precipitate alternative ways of understanding art’s stewardship, curatorial re­s­pon­sibility, public access and art history. Through more than twenty interviews with artists and curators in the course of the last ten years, and flanked by an extensive timeline, the reader of this publication is given an insight into the discourse on digital art and its curation today.

Annet Dekker is a curator, researcher and Assistant Professor Media Studies at the University of Amsterdam, and Visiting Professor and co-director of the Centre for the Study of the Networked Image at London South Bank University. She has been Researcher Digital Preservation at Tate, London, core tutor at Piet Zwart Institute, Rotterdam and Fellow at Het Nieuwe Instituut, Rotterdam.

Another internet is possible: how can we rebuild the internet as a decentralized, public infrastructure

The series ‘Making Public’ investigates ‘the public’, the civil domain where space, knowledge, values and commodities are shared. What does this notion of ‘public’ mean? How does this domain change under the influence of technological, political and social tendencies? Where are the boundaries of ‘the public’ and how are they determined? What forms of responsibility and solidarity does ‘the public’ invoke? And how do artists and culture critics shape the debate on these issues?

CAPS LOCK How capitalism took hold of graphic design, and how to escape from it Ruben Pater

Capitalism could not exist without the coins, bank­ notes, documents, information graphics, interfaces, branding, and advertising made by graphic designers. Even strategies such as social design and specula­ tive design are easily appropriated to serve eco­ nomic growth. It seems design is locked in a cycle of exploitation and extraction, furthering inequality and environmental collapse. CAPS LOCK is a reference work that uses clear language and visual examples to show how graphic design and capitalism have come to be inextricably linked. The book features designed objects, but also examines how the professional practice of designers itself supports capitalism. Six radical graphic design collectives are featured that resist capitalist thinking in their own way, inspiring a more sustainable and less exploitative practice of graphic design. Free educational toolkit available, look for CAPS LOCK at www.valiz.nl

Ruben Pater (b. 1977, NL) was trained as a graphic designer and works in journalism, activism, education, and graphic design under the name Untold Stories. His work received several international prizes and he has participated in many exhibitions worldwide.

Graphic Design Is (…) (…) (…) (…) (…) (…) (…) I (…) (…) (…) (…) Innocent

Graphic Design Is (…) Not Innocent questions ingrained approaches, values and assumptions of graphic design in globalized societies. The publica­ tion initiates dialogues between designers, scholars, critics and commissioners, who inquire responsibili­ ties, potentials, politics, limits and risks of designing visual communication. How innocent is graphic design? Whom is it addressing, whom is it in/exclud­ ing? What does it bring about? When defining the role and impact of visual communication, what future questions lie ahead? Graphic Design Is (…) Not Innocent combines case studies and academic reflections, trying to sketch a common ground for basic research into the parameters and value systems of graphic design. It is a road trip between various conceptual challenges and praxis. It is a temporal inventory, without the claim of completeness. It is a question mark, as well as an exclamation mark. And it wants to stimulate critical thinking in graphic design.

An intersectional approach to design that incorporates one’s context and self. The auto-ethnographic turn in design is emerging from a growing recognition of design’s capacity to make sense of one’s world while at the same time to express and convey this personal insight or knowledge through rich, layered, and ultimately meaningful processes or objects. Auto-ethnographic design seeks to come to terms with one’s context and self—as well as the materiality that mediates these two. In doing so, it offers a vision of design that is free of commercial commissions, assumed users’ needs, or well-intentioned do-goodism, and reveals a sincerity and genuine commitment in the process of design that is too often missing. The book is divided between ‘Ideas and Dialogues’ (reflections and conversations between critics, theorists, educators, and practitioners), which ground conceptions of auto-ethnography and the ‘self’ and explore how experiences can be relevant and meaningful starting points for design and visual art; and ‘Projects and Practices,’ which embody auto-ethnographic qualities—whereby design objects and practices are embedded with personal sentiments, experiences, desires, fears, and more.

On the Necessity of Gardening tells the story of the garden as a rich source of inspiration. Over the centuries, artists, writers, poets and thinkers have each described, depicted and designed the garden in different ways. In medieval art, the garden was a reflection of paradise, a place of harmony and fertility, shielded from worldly problems. In the eighteenth century this image tilted: the garden became a symbol of worldly power and politics. The Anthropocene, the era in which man completely dominates nature with disastrous consequences, is forcing us to radically rethink the role we have given nature in recent decades. There is a renewed interest in the theme of the garden among contem­ porary makers. It is not a romantic desire that drives them, but rather a call for a new awareness of our relationship with the earth. Through many different essays and an extensive abecedarium, On the Necessity of Gardening reflects on the garden as a metaphor for society. From Arcadia to Guerilla Gardening, Bomarzo to Little Sparta, Roberto Burle Marx to Fritz Haeg, the Anthropocene to Vibrant Matter: a brilliant and radical A–Z of garden history and garden politics.

Laurie Cluitmans (1984, NL) works as a curator of contemporary art for the Centraal Museum in Utrecht and is also an independent art critic. In 2016 she received the Prize for Young Art Criticism for her essay on the garden by Derek Jarman and Ian Hamilton Finlay.

Neighbourhoods for the Future A Plea for a Social and Ecological Urbanism ‘One of the 10 Best Architecture Books 2021.’ – Harm Tilman, de Architect

Neighbourhoods for the Future is based on the conviction that the current ecolog­ ical 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. ‘This book argues that if our cities are to cope with the challenge of climate change, they will need to be reinvented from first principles, with ecological urbanism in mind.’ – Foreground.com.au

Betaalbaar wonen is in Nederland nagenoeg onmo­ gelijk geworden. De ongelijkheid neemt op allerlei vlak toe; tussen generaties, tussen wie vermogend is en wie niet, tussen de reële dagelijkse economie en de huizenbubbel. De oplossingen voor het gebrek aan betaalbare woningen die markt en politiek voorstellen, pakken de symptomen aan, maar laten de achterliggende mechanismen ongemoeid. Dit boek stelt de ‘wooncoöperatie’ als een inspirerende factor tot structurele verandering, een alternatief tussen koop en huur. In de wooncoöpe­ ratie wordt wonen de uitdrukking van een collectief proces. Niet de individuele vraag ‘hoe wil ik wonen?’, maar het gezamenlijk vormgeven aan de vraag ‘hoe willen wij samenleven?’ bepaalt deze gemeen­ schappelijke inspanning, waarbij de bewoners zelf weer het heft in handen nemen. operatie wooncoöperatie vertelt de geschiedenis van ons wonen; waarom de coöperatie uit beeld verdween en waarom inmiddels steeds meer mensen een steeds groter deel van hun inkomen kwijt zijn aan huisvesting. Het documen­ teert tien bijzondere projecten uit Wenen, Zürich en München en legt uit hoe deze projecten konden ontstaan door bewuste keuzes vanuit het lokaal bestuur. Op inspirerende wijze toont het boek hoe we in Nederland een andere weg kunnen inslaan door wonen te verbinden aan gemeenschapseco­ nomie en gemeenschapsvorming.

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, techno­ logical or environmental issues. It is a peerreviewed book series that validates artistic, critical, speculative and essayistic writing as an academic publishing method. Publications in the Antennae series contain essays, theoretical explanations, sociocultural explorations, activist calls, practicebased research, and artist’s contributions.
