Kim Gordon, Is It My Body? Selected Texts, Sternberg Press, 2014

Throughout the 1980s and early ’90s, Kim Gordon—widely known as a founding member of the influential band Sonic Youth—produced a series of writings on art and music. Ranging from neo-Conceptual artworks to broader forms of cultural criticism, these rare texts are brought together in this volume for the first time, placing Gordon’s writing within the context of the artist-critics of her generation, including Mike Kelley, John Miller, and Dan Graham. In addressing key stakes within contemporary art, architecture, music, and the performance of male and female gender roles, Gordon provides a prescient analysis of such figures as Kelley, Glenn Branca, Rhys Chatham, Tony Oursler, and Raymond Pettibon, in addition to reflecting on her own position as a woman on stage. The result—Is It My Body?—is a collection that feels as timely now as when it was written. This volume additionally features a conversation between Gordon and Jutta Koether, in which they discuss their collaborations in art, music, and performance.

Magali Jourdan, Mathilde Sobottke, Elfriede Jelinek: Gesammelte Gedichte / Poésies complètes, Westphalie:, 2014

Gesammelte Gedichte / Poésies complètes is the first anthology of the complete poetry of Elfriede Jelinek. It contains 56 poems mostly written between 1964 and 1969 (at the exception of 3 of them, written respectively in 1980, 1981 and 1991) and includes one previously unpublished poem (“beginning young love”, read by the author at the 20. Österreichen Jugendkulturwoche, Innsbruck, 1969).
 
This book is in the first place a translator’s project. Magali Jourdan and Mathilde Sobottke have written the first biography of Elfriede Jelinek in French (Qui a peur d’Elfriede Jelinek ?, Paris: Editions Danger Public, 2006) and have translated into French Prinzessinnendramen: Der Tod und das Mädchen I-III und IV-V (Drames de Princesses / La Jeune Fille et la Mort I-V, Paris: L’Arche Éditeur, 2006) before having published seven translated poems in the literary magazine Avant-Poste (Avant-Poste n°7, Paris, 2009). Jourdan and Sobottke have decided then to go on and to translate all Jelinek’s poetry with her agreement.

Edited and translated by Magali Jourdan and Mathilde Sobottke.

Angie Keefer, Stuart Bailey, David Reinfurt, Bulletins of The Serving Library #5, Bulletins of The Serving Library, 2013

Conceived while in residency at the library of the Goethe-Institut New York, this issue of Bulletins of The Serving Library used the context of the hosting institution as a thematic starting point. 
 
Contemplating this theme as both foreigners and German citizens, many of the contributors present theses that reach deep into the realm of the personal. Jan Verwoert, for example, discusses the communication within his family as a lexicon “somewhere between speech and speechlessness”; while Leila Peacock, as a native English speaker learning German, explores the liminal space between language and translation. Diedrich Diederichsen, together with a list of editors and translators, co-translates his essay “Hören, Wiederhören, Zitieren,” published in the 1997 January issue of Spex. Diederichsen’s discussion of the pop quotation in music highlights the genre’s proximity to language, as the pop quotation “refers to what is absent in the present, and therefore points towards the semiotic nature of any music.”

Contributions by Michael Bracewell, Diedrich Diederichsen, Isla Leaver-Yap, Philip Ording, Leila Peacock, David Reinfurt, Mike Sperlinger, Jan Verwoert.

The Boston Women's Health Book Collective, Our Bodies, Ourselves: A Book by and For Women, Simon and Schuster, 1973

Sharing their experiences with one another, The Boston Women's Health Collective discovered that there was an imperative need for women everywhere to learn together about their bodies in order to have control over them, and over their lives.
Our Bodies, Ourselves is written by women for women, to communicate their excitement about the power of shared information, to assert that, in an age of professionals, women are the best experts on themselves and their feelings, to begin the collective struggle for adequate health care.
It seeks to stimulate women to discussion and to action, always making room for new ideas and for continuing change and growth.

Alan Kane, The Trongate Codex, The Modern Institute/Toby Webster Ltd., 2012

The Val D’Oro restaurant Glasgow has been decorated over many years by the proprietor Luigi Corvi with framed black and white copies and ephemera documenting a history of Glasgow and the generations of the Corvi family who have run the establishment. 
 
The book is a vehicle to record and disseminate an original human local story as well as to effect and illustrate the fluid nature of cultural significance and, in an analogue historic form, mirror questions around who has ownership of culture and history more commonly associated recently with digitally powered networks and communications.

Simone Weill, Note on the Abolition of All Political Parties, Semiotext(e), 2014

Almost everywhere - and often for purely technical problems - the operation of taking sides, of taking position for or against, has replaced the obligation to think. This leprosy of the mind began in political circles then spread throughout the country to almost all thinking. It is doubtful that we can cure this disease, which is killing us, if we do not start by abolishing political parties.

Chris Kraus, Lost Properties, Semiotext(e), 2014

Everyone wants to be an artist. The number of under- graduate students completing fine arts degrees at US colleges doubled in the years between 1985–2010, according to the Digest of Education Statistics. But being an artist doesn’t necessarily mean making drawings or paintings or sculpture or even installations or videos. The desire to pursue a life in “fine art” simply means a desire to respond creatively to the present, just as the disciplines of “poetry” or “rock & roll” were ciphers for countercultural lifestyles in other eras.
