Lili Reynaud Dewar, My epidemic – texts about my work and the work of other artists, Paraguay Press, 2015

My epidemic (texts about my work and the work of other artists) is the first anthology of writings by French artist Lili Reynaud-Dewar. The oldest text in the book dates back to 2003 – but was until now unpublished – whereas the most recent one is still to appear in the forthcoming issue of the art journal May of the summer 2015. The rest of the compendium has been disseminated during the last twelve years between as many exhibition catalogues and magazines editions in France but mostly abroad. They are sometimes essays on fellow artists (Lothar Hempel, François Curlet, Caroline Mesquita, John Smith, among others), exhibitions reviews, scripts from her artist talks, or can even take the form of a treatise on teaching. The provocative variety of subjects and ideas addressed by Reynaud-Dewar in My Epidemic stresses the anti-generalizing approach she’s now famous for in her sculpture and installation work, her obsession with how much difference differences make. My epidemic also retraces how her writing style has built up during these twelve years, gaining in visibility and distinctiveness, and it demonstrates the centrality of the role writing has come to play in her artistic practice. This book in this sense reads almost like a biography.
As often the case in her projects, Reynaud Dewar has collaborated with a number of close artist friends and colleagues for this book: Verena Dengler wrote the foreword; Marina Faust created the cover; Ramaya Tegegne designed this volume and inserted two new visual essays of her Bzzz Bzzz Bzzz series within; Paraguay Press published it.

Ramaya Tegegne, Make Your Own Life: Artists In & Out of Cologne, 2014

Bootleg of the catalogue for the 2006 exhibition curated by Bennett Simpson at the ICA Philadelphia, which brought together over twenty-five artists of three generations—centering from Cologne but also including Los Angeles, New York, London, and Berlin—to explore themes of autonomy, artistic collectivity and social relationships, and the privileging of the artist's life and context as a basis for understanding creative practice. 
 
In the 1980s and early-90s, the German city of Cologne was one of the most important centers for contemporary art in Europe, if not the world. With its many galleries, artist run-spaces, and artist bars, the city assumed a kind of mythological dimension, a place where artists came to show, sell, socialize, and distinguish themselves and their work on levels symbolic and real. The open question of how one makes one's art in relation to a set of communities, histories, market conditions and social attitudes was at the core of the Cologne scene. It was fiercely debated, dramatized in exaggerated behavior, art works and exhibitions alike, and it contributed greatly to the impression that Cologne was a place of extreme self-consciousness and audacity.
 
Featuring Bernadette Corporation, Cosima von Bonin, Merlin Carpenter, Stephan Dillemuth, Michaela Eichwald, Andrea Fraser, Kim Gordon, Charline von Heyl, Gareth James, Mike Kelley, Martin Kippenberger, Jutta Koether, Michael Krebber, Louise Lawler, Hans-Jorg Mayer, Lucy McKenzie, Nils Norman, Albert Oehlen, Christian Philipp Muller, Stephen Prina, Josephine Pryde, Blake Rayne, Reena Spaulings, Josef Strau, Rosemarie Trockel, Filmgruppe West, Christopher Williams, and Christopher Wool, among others.

Ramaya Tegegne, Bzzz Bzzz Bzzz, Marbriers 4, 2014

Bzzz Bzzz Bzzz is a visual essay looking at groups groups, networks and the phenomenon of gossip in an artistic context from a sociological point of view. Gossip is here understood as a relational model allowing to understand how groups emerge and define themselves through a mutual speculative knowledge and through some kind of difference to an outside. Gossip is considered as a productive virtue capable of creating intimacy, trust and a stimulating network allowing the emergence of common values, convictions and knowledge among the group.

Within the art world, as an informal mode of communication, it also plays a decisive role in the formation of a critical opinion on an artist's reputation: his personality, his work and consequently his career.

Compiled by Ramaya Tegegne on the occasion of her show Respektive at Marbriers 4, May 29 – June 14, 2014.
