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.

Coll., Black Mountain: An Interdisciplinary Experiment 1933 –1957, Spector Books, 2015

The interdisciplinary and experimental educational ideas espoused by Black Mountain College (BMC), founded in North Carolina in 1933, made it one of the most innovative schools in the first half of the twentieth century. Visual arts, economics, physics, dance, architecture, and music were all taught here on an equal footing, and teachers and students lived together in a democratically organized community. The first rector of the school was John Andrew Rice, and Josef Albers, John Cage, Walter Gropius, and Buckminster Fuller were among the many adepts to give courses here. In consequence, BMC witnessed the development of a range of avant-garde concepts. This richly illustrated book appears in conjunction with the Black Mountain exhibition. It is the first comprehensive publication on BMC in the German-speaking world and traces the key moments in the history of this legendary school.

Edited by Eugen Blume, Matilda Felix, Gabriele Knapstein, Catherine Nichols.

Jonas Mekas, Scrapbooks of the Sixties: Writings 1954–2010, Spector Books, 2015

Scrapbook of the Sixties is a collection of published and unpublished texts by Jonas Mekas, filmmaker, writer, poet, and cofounder of the Anthology Film Archives in New York.

Born in Lithuania, he came to Brooklyn via Germany in 1949 and began shooting his first films there. Mekas developed a form of film diary in which he recorded moments of his daily life. He became the barometer of the New York art scene and a pioneer of American avant-garde cinema. Every week, starting in 1958, he published his legendary “Movie Journal” column in The Village Voice, writing on a range of subjects that were by no means restricted to the world of film. He conducted numerous interviews with artists like Andy Warhol, Susan Sontag, John Lennon & Yoko Ono, Erick Hawkins, and Nam June Paik. Some of these will now appear for the first time in his Scrapbook of the Sixties. Mekas’s writings reveal him as a thoughtful diarist and an unparalleled chronicler of the times—a practice that he has continued now for over fifty years.

Clarice Lispector, Complete Stories, Penguin Modern Classic, 2015

Clarice Lispector was one of the most blistering and innovative twentieth-century writers of the short story. This collection, gathering all her stories together for the first time in English, shows us abandonments and dependencies, animals too deeply loved and then eaten, the smallest woman in the world, moments of madness and passions that have the ferocity of a fork plunged into a good friend's neck. Together they follow the evolution of a writer capable of capturing all the incredible heat and wonder of existence.

Jack Hirschman (ed.), Artaud Anthology, City Light Books, 1965

“I am the man“, said Antonin Artaud, “who has best charted his inmost self“. To society, Artaud was an addict and a madman. He was by nature a visionary poet and incendiary, and this book brings together for the first time in English a sufficient and representative quantity of Artaud's (non-theatrical) writing to explain that particular attraction he has for many today – a fascination which lies only partly in his embodiment of the alienated individual in society (as in Artaud's own interpretation of Van Gogh, in whom he could not help but see himself). Here one can hear – in very faithful and beautiful translations, done mostly by contemporary poets – Artaud's whole voice as it has not been heard before in English – his drug pleas, his prophecies, his castigations and condemnations, his tribal chants and poems.“

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.

Statement and Counter-Statement: Notes on Experimental Jetset, Roma Publications, 2015

The first publication on the work of Experimental Jetset features almost two decades of graphic design praxis. Rather than a monolithic monograph, it is a very loose, personal archive, with essays by Linda van Deursen, Mark Owens, and Ian Svenonius, plus two photographic chapters with a selection of work by the studio, covering both printed matter and the documentation of site-specific pieces and installations. To conclude is a glossary-like anthology of texts (fragments of interviews, lectures, correspondence, etc.) previously written by Experimental Jetset, selected, edited, and structured by Jon Sueda. Design: Experimental Jetset.

Genesis P-Orridge, Thee Psychick Bible, Feral House, 2009

“It has been a revelation and become very thrilling for me to see 30 years+ of social, ritual and communal explorations consensed into what we feel may become the most profound new manual on 'practical magick' taking from its Crowleyn level of liberation and empowerment of the Individual to a next level of realization that magick must then give back to its environment, its community, become about liberation and empowerment to change this 'world' and evolve our humanE species.“
                    – Genesis Breyer P-Orridge        


THEE PSYCHICK BIBLE: Thee Apocryphal Scriptures ov Genesis Breyer P-Orridge and Thee Third Mind ov Thee Temple ov Psychick Youth is 544 pages in length, with basic texts, documents, illustrations, photographs and new commentaries  regarding Thee Temple ov Psychick Youth (TOPY), the most influential magickal commune of the '80s and '90s.

TOPY will be remembered for its crucial influence on youth culture throughout the ’80s and ’90s, popularizing occult investigations, tattooing, body piercing, acid house raves, and other ahead-of-the-curve cultic flirtations and investigations. Its leader was Genesis P-Orridge, co-founder of Psychick TV and Throbbing Gristle, the band that created the industrial music genre.
