Tobias Madison, Drawings, 9783906011, 2012

«Drawings» is a collection of digital drawings created between 2008 and early 2012 by the young Swiss artist Tobias Madison. The works are based on the gestural application of software chains of command – Madison uses this formal language as work material for exhibitions, textile applications and performances. 
Pop, a love-hate relationship with abstraction, emptied design codes of the past decades, as well as fragments and ruins of the digital culture are interwoven into the iconography of the images. Influenced by the fast, almost spastic transition into the digital culture, Madison continually questions authorship, medium and distribution. Without ever lapsing into the prevalent cultural pessimism, Madison, in his maximum aesthetic, articulates a biting commentary on the present.

Hal Foster, The Minks' Cry, Bay Press, 1982

Children book by Hal Foster, with picture by Milo Mottola

Bay Press is the most significant independent press in Seattle's history. The only local rival to Bay Press may be Fantagraphics Books, which has been publishing comics and graphic novels from its offices in Lake City since 1976.
Bay Press was born in New York City, when Thatcher decided to publish Hal Foster's book, A Mink's Cry, a children's story.

"And then," Thatcher says, "Hal had this other idea." That idea was the book The Anti-Aesthetic: Essays on Postmodern Culture. "The children's book," explains Hal Foster, "was more of a lark. I mean, I think he [Thatcher] wanted to get into publishing, and it was an easy enough first book to attempt. I'm very grateful that he did it, but it's funny, I don't think many people know that I ever did a kids' book."

Stephen Willats, Control Magazine #18, CONTROL MAGAZINE, 2009

Despite the forwarding of new forms of socially based and engaged art practice by artists, a feature of culture in the last decades has been the ethos surrounding the possession of art objects. Art as property has not only persisted in our culture but has been celebrated and projected as adominate emulative icon.
What cannot be ignored at the time of producing Control Magazine, Issue Eighteen, is the sudden collapse of the financial markets that supported an inflated bubble. A bubble, which fostered the art object as financial investment.
Control Magazine Issue Eighteen presents texts by artists that offer a vision, a way forward which connects with people, to externalise their work into the real world today. 
In this new issue of Control Magazine a group of texts are presented by artists that are considered to have responded to recent cultural events and are offering strategies for the expression of social and community values in art practice.
