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.

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.

Chronicles of Radical Affection

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. Carolyn Strauss (US/NL) is a researcher, curator, and creative facilitator whose work traverses the fields of architecture, design, contemporary art, emerging technology, and social theory. She is the director of Slow Research Lab.


NEW Making Public Series Digital Art Curating Public Access

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.

CAPS LOCK

NEW Design and Society Design Theory and History Visual Communication Economics / Marxism

How capitalism took hold of graphic design, and how to escape from it

Our current economic system could not exist without the number systems, coins, banknotes, documents, advertisements, interfaces, typefaces and infor­ mation graphics that graphic designers have helped to create. Even speculative design and social design play their part in fueling the economic system. Capitalism has brought tremendous wealth, but it has not done so evenly. Extreme income inequality and environmental destruction is the price future generations have to pay for unbridled eco­ nomic growth. The question is if ethical graphic design is even possible under such conditions. CAPS LOCK uses clear language and visual examples to show how graphic design and capital­ ism are inextricably linked. By sharing examples of radical design practices that challenge the suprem­ acy of the market it hopes to inspire a different kind of graphic design.

AUTHOR AND DESIGN Ruben Pater, untold-stories.net

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.

Performing Mourning Laments in Contemporary Art Guy Cools

‘Each person’s grief is as unique as their fingerprint. But what everyone has in common is that no matter how they grieve, they share a need for their grief to be witnessed.’ David Kessler (2019) The pandemic has once again made us more aware of the fragility of life and the importance of being able to properly mourn the dead. Dramaturg Guy Cools has been researching laments and other rituals of mourn­ing. He is particularly interested in how the emotions of loss need to be externalized. The laments are a formal device, used in many cultures to express and contain the emotions of grief. In a poetic, meandering, personal way Cools explores cultural habits, traditions, rituals, and artists’ performances. His narrative looks into many forms of laments: literary, anthropological, philo­ sophical, and in contemporary art practices. The latter part delves into artistic strategies to address or embody mourning: dialogical strategies that deal with personal losses; collective mourning rituals and how they invite communities to witness these losses; contemporary examples of laments that are not only used to dialogue with the dead but also to communi­ cate with loved ones who are absent because of migration or exile; a very specific form of mourning that occurs when we grieve for the unrealized potential of a child’s unlived life, including that of an unborn child. And finally, the very recent phenome­ non of lamenting not just the losses of the past, but also the loss of a future.

Guy Cools is a dance dramaturg. He has worked as a dance critic and curator. He now dedicates himself to production dramaturgy and research/ writing. He regularly lectures and publishes internationally (In-between Dance Cultures, Valiz 2015; Imaginative Bodies, Valiz 2016; The Ethics of Art (co-ed.), Valiz, 2014, The Choreopolitics of Alain Platel’s les ballets C de la B, Bloomsbury 2019 (co-ed.)

Effigy hanging and burning, a specific theatrical form of political protest, has become increasingly visible in the news media, particularly in protests against United States military operations in Afghanistan and Iraq, in US domestic politics, and in the Arab Spring. Taking these events as points of departure, Göttke investigates the conditions of this visual genre of protest, its roots and genealogies in a number of countries, its aesthetics and politics. Effigy protests communicate communal outrage over perceived injustice. Hanging and burn­ ing effigies is an archaic and ritualistic form of protest, yet it is effectively communicated through global news media and social media, mediated, and used trans-nationally. The book contains two inter­ acting narratives: text (seven chapters) and a paral­ lel montage of images. It delves deeply into the different practices, iconologies, rituals, protest and media strategies, as well as into politics and con­ cludes with a reflection on how the effigy protests act as a symptom of fundamental conflicts at the limits of contemporary liberal democracy. With many images from the United States, Iraq, Egypt, Iran, Afghanistan, and many other areas.

Burning Images A History of Effigy Protests

Florian Göttke is a visual artist, researcher, and writer. He combines visual modes of research (collecting, close reading, and image montage) with academic research to investigate the functioning of public images and their relationship to social memory and politics. Göttke has exhibited internationally, and has written many articles.

Ingo Offermanns

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.

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.

Valiz is an independent international publisher and addresses contemporary developments in art, design, typography and urban affairs. Our books offer critical reflection and interdisciplinary inspiration in a broad-based and imaginative way, often establishing a connection between cultural disciplines and socio-economic questions. Our programme consists of three components: Theory and texts on visual culture in a broad sense (art and culture theory, art sociology, art and politics, critical art history, artists’ texts, design, daily visual culture and communication); Books that are conceived and elaborated in close collaboration with artists, designers and art institutes; Programmes, events, lectures that deal with urgent topics in contemporary culture.

Spring 2021 We would have loved to make a paper folder again, but in these times — no book fairs, no visits to booksellers, hardly any real-life exchange with our readers or authors — we chose to make a digital version. We hope you’ll keep going strong, go on reading and enjoying creative work by yourself or by others, and keep sane and healthy!
