Mara Züst, Simone Koller, Doris Stauffer: A Monograph, Scheidegger & Spiess, 2015

In addition to her contributions to art criticism, Doris Stauffer has produced an impressive body of artistic work that consists of photography, sculpture, and collage. The subject of exhibitions in her native Switzerland, Stauffer is among the founders of the F + F School of Experimental Design, and her explorations of form and color have long been recognized for engaging with feminism and the existing conventions and hierarchies within society.

With more than three hundred illustrations, Doris Stauffer documents for the first time the life and work of this important twentieth-century artist with a focus on her political engagement. Essays place Stauffer’s work in historical and political context, including her involvement with the Swiss women’s liberation movement and an interview in which the artist imagines alternative forms of feminism and art education. Additional essays look at the influence of Stauffer on other female artists, as well as some of the recurring themes in her art, including fairy tales and other forms of narration.

François Peraldi, Polysexuality (Semiotext(e) #10), Semiotext(e), 1995

Originally conceived as a special Semiotext(e) issue on homosexuality at the end of the 70s, “Polysexuality” quickly evolved into a more complex and iconoclastic project whose intent was to do away with recognized genders altogether, considered far too limitative. The project landed somewhere between humor, anarchy, science-fiction, utopia and apocalypse. In the few years that it took to put it together, it also evolved from a joyous schizo concept to a darker, neo-Lacanian elaboration on the impossibility of sexuality. The tension between the two, occasionally perceptible, is the theoretical subtext of the issue. Upping the ante on gender distinctions, “Polysexuality” started by blowing wide open all sexual classifications, inventing unheard-of categories, regrouping singular features into often original configurations, like Corporate Sex, Alimentary Sex, Soft or Violent Sex, Discursive Sex, Self- Sex, Animal Sex, Child Sex, Morbid Sex, or Sex of the Gaze. Mixing documents, interviews, fiction, theory, poetry, psychiatry and anthropology, “Polysexuality” became the encyclopedia sexualis of a continent that is still emerging. What it displayed in all its forms could be called, broadly speaking, the Sexuality of Capital. (Actually the issue being rather hot, it was decided to cool it off somewhat by only using “capitals” throughout the issue. It was also the first issue for which we used the computer).
 
Includes work by Alain Robbe-Grillet, Félix Guattari, Paul Verlaine, William S.Burroughs, Georges Bataille, Pierre Klossowski, Roland Barthes, Paul Virilio, Peter Lamborn Wilson, and more.

Öyvind Fahlström, Essais choisis, Les presses du réel, 2002

Connu principalement comme artiste visuel, Öyvind Fahlström (1928-1976) était également poète, dramaturge, happening-maker, cinéaste, critique d'art et critique littéraire. Sa recherche d'un art total explique son intérêt pour les formes d'art hybrides, et éclaire la grande variété des sujets abordés dans le présent recueil, dans lequel figurent de nombreux inédits en français : Sade, Céline ou W. S. Burroughs y croisent la poésie concrète et le Nouveau Roman, les artistes du Pop Art les réalisateurs de la Nouvelle Vague et les pionniers de la musique électronique, et les considérations sur la contre-culture hippie se mêlent aux commentaires de Fahlström sur son propre travail.
« L'artiste est comme un agent, comme un espion ou un membre d'une organisation clandestine. Auparavant je pensais que je pourrais peindre à certains moments, et me distraire à d'autres. Mais dernièrement j'ai réalisé que, en tant qu'artiste, l'on n'est jamais au repos, que la chasse et la pêche continuent perpétuellement, et comme un membre de la résistance, on ne peut jamais se détendre, dès lors que l'on sait qu'on pourrait venir frapper à votre porte à tout moment pendant la nuit ». Les observations réunies dans cette anthologie forment ainsi comme autant de rapports de cette activité ininterrompue, celle d'un artiste entendu comme agent double, ou espion, tour à tour savant fou (Benway) et explorateur (Livingstone).
