Peter K. Bichsel, Silvan Lerch, Autonomie auf A4. Wie die Zürcher Jugendbewegung Zeichen setzte. Flugblätter 1979–82, Limmat Verlag, 2017

Züri brännt – auf Papier
Mit einer für die Schweiz radikal neuen visuellen Sprache sorgten sie für Aufsehen: die Flugblätter der Zürcher Jugendunruhen Anfang der 1980er-Jahre. Sie entwickelten sich zum zentralen Medium der Bewegung, transportierten die autoritäts- und konsumkritische Haltung der Protestierenden mit einer provokanten, aber auch poetischen und tiefsinnigen Bildsprache. So brachten sie das Lebensgefühl einer ganzen Generation zum Ausdruck – und schockierten etablierte Kräfte in Gesellschaft und Politik. Der Band vereint über 200 Flugblätter zu einer qualitativ wie quantitativ einmaligen Sammlung und wirft einen facettenreichen Blick auf eine Zeit an der Bruchstelle zum heutigen Zürich.

Mit Texten von Heinz Nigg, Roland Fischbacher, Robert Lzicar.

Annwen, Herbal Abortion, Godhaven Ink, 2002

Since before recorded history women have been able to control their own fertility using plants. Whether it be for increasing the chances of conceiving, contraception, abortion or starting delayed periods, women have known how to listen to their bodies and affect them. It’s only fairly recently that we’ve given over all knowledge of our bodies to medical professionals.

Ed Sanders, The Family: The Story of Charles Manson's Dune Buggy Attack Battalion, E. P. Dutton, 1971

In August of 1969, during two bloody evenings of paranoid, psychedelic savagery, Charles Manson and his dystopic communal family helped to wreck the dreams of the Love Generation. At least nine people were murdered, among them Sharon Tate, the young, beautiful, pregnant, actress and wife of Roman Polanski. Ed Sanders' unnerving and detailed look at the horror dealt by Manson and his followers is a classic of the true-crime genre. The Family was originally published in 1971 and remains the most meticulously researched account of the most notorious murders of the 1960s. Using firsthand accounts from some of the family's infamous members, including the wizard himself, Sanders examines not only the origins and legacy of Manson and his family, but also the mysteries that persist.
"One of the best-researched, best-written, thoroughly-constructed, and eminently significant books of our times…. A masterpiece."

Great book.

Kirsten Grimstad, Susan Rennie, The New Woman's Survival Catalog, Berkeley Publishing Company, 1973

The New Woman's Survival Catalog is a guide book for what was the burgeoning feminist movement. The editors concieved the catalog as a tool for developing an "alternative woman's culture." The book is similar in style to the Whole Earth Catalog and numerous other movement builing tools published at this time, but it is directed at specifically feminist infrastructure projects. The editors highlight women-run presses, bookstores, law firms, credit unions, and media outlets, as well as books and art made by and for women. Chapters include: Communications, Art, Self-Health, Self-Defense, Work and Money, Building the Movement, and Getting Justice. In each chapter, descriptions with addresses and contact information are included so that a reader may contact their desired resource. Today this provides an historical document of the reach, diversity and scope of the second wave feminist movement. For instance, there are a handful of feminist women's health centers in operation today, but the Self-Health chapter includes addresses and descriptions of feminist health initiatives in several parts of the United States.

Manuel Herz, African Modernism, Park Books, 2015

African Modernism. The Architecture of Independence. Ghana, Senegal, Côte d'Ivoire, Kenya, Zambia

In the 1950s and 1960s, most African countries gained independence from their respective colonial power. Architecture became one of the principal means by which the newly formed countries expressed their national identity. Parliament buildings, central banks, stadiums, convention centers, universities and independence memorials were built, often to heroic and daring designs. At the same time, these buildings exemplify also the difficulties, contradictions and dilemmas these countries experienced in their nation-building process.

Fabrice Stroun, Lionel Bovier, AIDS RIOT NEW YORK 1987–1994: Artist Collectives Against AIDS, Magasin, 2003

The rise of AIDS in New York during the '80s caused and unprecedented social crisis. Catastrophic management of the epidemic by public authorities and the media magnified the scale of the tragedy. In reaction to the stigmatization and discrimination of the groups affected by the disease, strategies of resistance sprung out from various levels of civic society. AIDS RIOT focuses of a series of collective responses originating from the field of contemporary art. From the appropriation of advertising campains by Gran Fury to the virus-like circulation of General Idea's AIDS logo, and from Group Material's pedagogical exhibitions to the 'guerilla' videos by Testing the Limits, artist collectives reestablished the proactive role of art – as a vector for social change – and profoundly changed the shape of cultural activism. AIDS RIOT concentrates on the period from 1987 to 1994, when questions of efficient methods and modes of addresses were debated with an unprecedented clarity. 
This publication gathers a selection of texts and documents central to the debates of the era, notably by Douglas Crimp, David Deitcher, General Idea, Gran Fury, Group Material, as well as new interviews with Julie Ault, Gregg Bordowitz, AA Bronson, Donald Moffett and Marlene McCarty.
The positions highlighted in AIDS RIOT question the forumula for a successful articulation of theory and practice from and within a given cultural scene. In a time of growing estheticization of the political and increasing nostalgia for social commitment, this anthology points towards the kinds of discourses and relation to power and dominant representations cultural practices should develop in order to be truly active today.

AIDS RIOT is a research project conceived and edited by the 12th Session of the École du Magasin, Curatorial Studies Program of the Centre National d'Art Contemporain de Grenoble: Caroline Engel, Nicolas Fenouillat, Aurélie Guitton, Benedetta di Loreto, Flora Loyau, Ivana Mestrov and Ana Olszewska, supervised by Lionel Bovier and Fabrice Stroun.

Aby Warburg, L'Atlas Mnémosyne, L'écarquillé, 2012

Si Aby Warburg a été le premier à définir une méthode d’interprétation iconologique, s’il a créé une bibliothèque des sciences de la culture unique au monde, l’innovation décisive qu’il a introduite dans le champ épistémologique de l’histoire de l’art est bien Mnémosyne: œuvre absolument originale et unique, dont l’ambition n’est rien moins, que de poser les fondements d’une grammaire figurative générale, et qui ouvre des perspectives dont la portée n’a pas encore été totalement mesurée. Par la complexité des problèmes auxquels s’est confronté Warburg face à cet immense corpus d’images, c’est l’attention de l’ensemble des sciences humaines qu’il a attirée sur son œuvre.

Resté inachevé à la mort de l’auteur, ayant mobilisé l’énergie intellectuelle et physique de ses dernières années, Mnémosyne peut être considéré comme l’aboutissement de toutes ses recherches. Il constitue le plus ambitieux corpus d’images jamais réuni, dont la genèse et l’évolution sont liées à une pratique discursive et à un mode de transmission du savoir que préconisait Warburg, mais qu’il convient aussi d’examiner sous l’angle de ses relations avec le problème de la mémoire et avec sa bibliothèque. L’essai de Roland Recht se propose de replacer ce work in progress dans son contexte intellectuel.
