Donna Haraway, The Companion Species Manifesto: dogs, people, and significant otherness, Prickly Paradigm Press, 2003

The Companion Species Manifesto is about the implosion of nature and culture in the joint lives of dogs and people, who are bonded in "significant otherness." In all their historical complexity, Donna Haraway tells us, dogs matter. They are not just surrogates for theory, she says; they are not here just to think with. Neither are they just an alibi for other themes; dogs are fleshly material-semiotic presences in the body of technoscience. They are here to live with. Partners in the crime of human evolution, they are in the garden from the get-go, wily as Coyote. This pamphlet is Haraway's answer to her own Cyborg Manifesto, where the slogan for living on the edge of global war has to be not just "cyborgs for earthly survival" but also, in a more doggish idiom, "shut up and train."

Henri Chopin, Les Mirages des 27 / Visioni dei 27 Segni, Edizioni Morra, 1995

Henri Chopin (18 June 1922 – 3 January 2008) was a French avant-garde poet and musician: he is widely considered to be a pioneer in the recognition and distribution of sound-poetry. Besides poetry and music, his practice includes paining, graphic design, typography, independant publishing and filmmaking; Chopin's work is a barometer of the shifts in European media between the 1950s and the 1970s. 

In 1964 he created OU, one of the most notable reviews of the second half of the 20th century, and he ran it until 1974. OU's contributors included William S. Burroughs, Brion Gysin, Gil J Wolman, François Dufrêne, Bernard Heidsieck, John Furnival, Tom Phillips, and the Austrian sculptor, writer and Dada pioneer Raoul Hausmann. 

Chopin spent a lot of time in Naples from the beginning of the 1980s due to his collaborative projects with Peppe Morra, founder of Fondazione Morra, one of the most renowned spaces for contemporary art active within the city. Morra and Chopin worked closely together up until the final years of the French artist’s life. During this time they produced numerous publications, a large number of which were based on his stunning production of “typewriter poems”. Chopin found a new possibility for poetry both within sound and the written form; with a formal approach he constructed a new alphabetical narration that actually had no responsibility for communication.
His personal production — consisting of typewriter-poems and sound performances — is an inspired attempt to open the medium of poetry into a form described by Chopin as ‘a poetry of spaces’: demonstrating ‘the sensory superiority of sound as opposed to normal speech, and [...] free man from the straightjacket of words and letters and from his obedience to didactics.’

This book contains a text by Stelio Maria Martini.

Colette Thomas, one of Antonin Artaud’s “daughters of the heart” flashed briefly before an unsuspecting Parisian literary world after the war... then vanished. The book she published in 1954, under the pseudonym René, comprised letters to Antonin Artaud, accounts of her own early incarceration and suffering, along with tales wrenched from her tortured being. Despite some attention and knowledge of her book there has been no new French edition of Le Testament de la Fille morte.

Lutz Bacher, The Gift, Secession, 2016

This artist’s book is published on the occasion of the exhibition ‘More Than This’ at the Secession, Vienna, and features the heterogeneous oeuvre of American artist Lutz Bacher. Over her 40-year career, Bacher has produced conceptual works that defy classification in a variety of formats, including videotapes, photographs, and other mixed media. Described as eclectic, rough, open-ended, and disturbing, many works incorporate elements from pop culture, personal artefacts, and found objects, and address questions of identity as expressed through sexuality and the human body. The book is filled with newspaper clippings, personal communications, and many images.

Stephen Barber, Pierre Guyotat: Revolutions & Aberrations, Vauxhall&Company;, 2016

From his first books of the 1960s – such as Tomb for Five Hundred Thousand Soldiers and Eden, Eden, Eden – to his recent books such as Coma, 2006, Pierre Guyotat’s seminal work has deeply marked and transformed that of innumerable artists and writers in many countries beyond France itself. With its focus extending from his novels to his work in film, art and performance, this illuminating collection of seven texts – drawn from encounters and conversations with Pierre Guyotat over a period of close to thirty years – explores his driving preoccupations and experimentations, with corporeality and vision, conflict and warfare, sex and the entity of language, activism and revolution, hallucination and aberration.

Daniel Buren, Les Écrits (1965-1990), CAPC, 1991

"En 1985 le capc Musée d'art contemporain de Bordeaux prit la décision de publier les écrits complets de Daniel Buren. Le travail s'est engagé avec l'ambition quelque peu déraisonnable de viser à l'exhaustivité. Le musée et Daniel Buren en ont accepté l'enjeu car il ne s'agissait pas d'assouvir quelque besoin de compilation maniaque, mais de donner à comprendre comment s'étaient écrits et dits au jour le jour, à côté ou autour du travail proprement esthétique, un discours et des textes dont la fonction s'est avérée indispensable." (extrait de la préface du livre par Jean-Marc Poinsot).

Textes réunis et présentés par Jean-Marc Poinsot. Publication préparée par Marc Sanchez. En trois volumes. Tome I : 1965-1976 ; Tome II : 1977-1983 ; Tome III : 1984-1990.

Hervey de Saint-Denys, Les rêves et les moyens de les diriger, Tchou, 1964

Professeur émérite de tartare-mandchou au Collège de France, Hervey de Saint-Denys, se place ici à l'opposé de toutes les prétendues «clefs des songes» et autres théories fumeuses qui avaient cours à son époque. Forgeur de merveilles, adulé par les surréalistes, il tente d'expliquer certains comportements par l'analyse des rêves, n'en faisant pas un autre monde, mais une part intime et complète de l'individu, de ses actes et motivations, en multipliant les expériences les plus inattendues.

Peter Dreher, Just Painting, Occasional papers, 2014

This book brings together, for the first time in English, a selection of texts written about the work of German artist Peter Dreher. It focuses primarily on his remarkable series of over 5,000 paintings of the same empty drinking glass, produced since 1974. These texts identify a broad variety of approaches to Dreher’s work, including realist, formalist, conceptual, psychoanalytical, philosophical and spiritual interpretations of a practice that, as writer Lynne Tillman has suggested, addresses the entire ‘history of the problems in painting.’

With essays by Michael Archer, Peter Dreher, Stefan Kraus, Hans Ulrich Obrist, Anthony Spira, Dirk Teuber, Lynne Tillman, Franz Joseph van der Grinten, Beat Wismer and John Yau.
