Peter Cachola Schmal, Oliver Elser, Filipp Kurz, SOS BRUTALISM. A Global Survey, Park Books, 2017

The first-ever global survey of brutalist architecture from the 1950s to the 1970s, based on research project carried out collaboratively by Deutsches Architekturmuseum DAM and Wüstenrot Foundation.

"SOS Brutalism" is a distress signal. Since the 1950s, eminent architects around the world have realized buildings expressing an uncompromising attitude. Predominantly, yet not exclusively, they used exposed concrete, or béton brut (hence the term brutalism), for the construction. Today, many of these always controversially discussed buildings are in danger of demolition or, at least, of reconstruction that often may change their appearance beyond recognition. In recent years, an initiative to protect and preserve this significant global heritage of 20th-century architecture has gained momentum, mainly in the internet.

The result of this research to date is a global survey of brutalist architecture of the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s, presented in an exhibition at DAM in autumn 2017 and a coinciding and uniquely comprehensive book. Some 100 contributors document around 120 key buildings from this period, including many previously unpublished discoveries that are in acute danger of loss through neglect of intended demolition. Moreover, the book features overviews of brutalism in architecture in twelve regions around the world. Case studies of hotspots such as the Macedonian capital Skopje or New Haven, Connecticut, and essays on the history and theory of brutalism round out this lavishly illustrated book. The supplement collects papers of an international symposium on brutalism in architecture held in Berlin in 2012.

Elisabeth Lebovici, Ce que le sida m’a fait. Art et activisme à la fin du XXe siècle, JRP|Ringier, 2017

L'historienne et critique d'art revisite, avec sa mémoire de témoin, les liens entre art et activisme durant les « années sida » en France et aux États-Unis. Composé de textes monographiques, d'entretiens et d'essais thématiques, cet ouvrage rédigé à la première personne rend compte d'une créativité artistique et activiste née de l'urgence de vivre et du combat pour la reconnaissance de tous·tes.

Restituer la parole des ami·e·s de lutte, articuler les « je » et « nous » d'alors et d'aujourd'hui, faire retour sur des faits et affects peu connus du public français, analyser l'« épidémie de la représentation » consécutif à l'apparition du sida : telle est l'entreprise de cet ouvrage, conçu par Elisabeth Lebovici comme un véritable « discours de la méthode » où, toujours, le personnel est politique, le public et le privé s'intriquent. Engagée aux côtés des activistes français et américains de la lutte contre le sida, observatrice privilégiée, en tant qu'historienne de l'art et journaliste, des débats et enjeux des années 1980 et 1990, l'auteure analyse ce moment charnière des liens entre art et activisme, qu'elle revisite avec sa mémoire de témoin, en survivante affectée.

Ce volume propose ainsi, dans un va-et-vient constant entre les États-Unis et la France, une cosmologie élective : ACT UP, les « arbres téléphoniques », Richard Baquié, Gregg Bordowitz, Alain Buffard, Douglas Crimp, les « enterrements politiques », General Idea, Nan Goldin, Félix González-Torres, Gran Fury, L'Hiver de l'amour, Roni Horn, Eve Kosofsky Sedgwick, Zoe Leonard, Mark Morrisroe, William Ollander, le « Patchwork de noms », The Real Estate Show, Lionel Soukaz, Philippe Thomas, Georges Tony Stoll, Paul Vecchiali, David Wojnarowicz, Dana Wyse, les zaps, etc.

Coll., Hippie Modernism: The Struggle for Utopia, Walker Art Center, 2015

Hippie Modernism examines the art, architecture and design of the counterculture of the 1960s and early 1970s. The catalogue surveys the radical experiments that challenged societal norms while proposing new kinds of technological, ecological and political utopia. It includes the counter-design proposals of Victor Papanek and the anti-design polemics of Global Tools; the radical architectural visions of Archigram, Superstudio, Haus-Rucker-Co and ONYX; the installations of Ken Isaacs, Joan Hills, Mark Boyle, Hélio Oiticica and Neville D'Almeida; the experimental films of Jordan Belson, Bruce Conner and John Whitney; posters and prints by Emory Douglas, Corita Kent and Victor Moscoso; documentation of performances by the Diggers and the Cockettes; publications such as Oz and The Whole Earth Catalog; books by Marshall McLuhan and Buckminster Fuller; and much more.

While the turbulent social history of the 1960s is well known, its cultural production remains comparatively under-examined. In this substantial volume, scholars explore a range of practices such as radical architectural and anti-design movements emerging in Europe and North America; the print revolution in the graphic design of books, posters and magazines; and new forms of cultural practice that merged street theater and radical politics. Through a profusion of illustrations, interviews with figures including: Gerd Stern of USCO; Ken Isaacs; Gunther Zamp Kelp of Haus-Rucker-Co; Ron Williams and Woody Rainey of ONYX; Franco Raggi of Global Tools; Tony Martin; Clark Richert and Richard Kallweit of Drop City; as well as new scholarly writings, this book explores the conjunction of the countercultural ethos and the modernist desire to fuse art and life.

Lisa Robertson, Matthew Stadler, Revolution: A Reader, Paraguay Press, Publication Studio, 2015

Co-published with Publication Studio, Portland, Revolution: A Reader collects texts from across many cultures and times and organizes them roughly along a chronology of living, from “beginning,” to “childhood,” “education,” “adulthood,” and “death.” The book brings the embodied fact of revolution into the lived present by engaging readers with language that takes us there, no matter where we are to begin with. We are all in revolution, now. Reading can make this fact primary and conscious and shared. Heavily annotated throughout, the book is, quite literally, a conversation. The annotations, by Lisa Robertson and Matthew Stadler — composed simultaneously and in response to one another — stitch a web of argument that links the book into a single thing, a reader. The book also features a narrative bibliography of revolution by David Brazil.

With texts by Kathy Acker, Etel Adnan, Vivienne Westwood, Dodie Bellamy, David Brazil, Edmund Burke, Mina Loy, Mahmoud Darwish, Oscar Wilde, Guy Davenport, Angela Davis, Gertrude Stein, Stacy Doris, Hannah Arendt, Saskia Sassen, Frantz Fanon, Shulamith Firestone, Louise Michel, Eileen Myles, Jean Genet, Michel Ragon, Donna Haraway, Oscar Tuazon and many more.
