➔Putting Out @ Gavin Brown's Enterprise

Between 1760 and 1840 the Industrial Revolution put us in our place. In fact, it quite literally put us in queues, in boxes, on conveyor belts, up chimneys, living on the streets or in suburbia – it made us the cogs in the machines with the sole intention of profit for those born into wealth...

➔AGENDA @ INDEX, Stockholm, Sweden

Spanish/Argentinian artist and Iaspis resident Amalia Ulman presents the staged lecture Agenda at Index; A body trapped between the carpeted floors and ceiling tiles of her DTLA office, a dreamlike storyline of cons and scams, economies of appearances and the rise and fall of Bob The Pigeon. Agenda mixes academic formats with lowly language, hyper-feminine soft tones and songs to create semi-fictional worlds. The piece exposes the final narrative of the online performance Privilege by the artist.

➔Book Presentation: Inscription by Karl-Magnus Johansson

What conditions inscription? Why are certain statements allowed to emerge in archival substrates? These questions are asked in this publication as it explores the concept of inscription—the archival moment that is constituted by the materialization of statements. It does so by including approaches from a variety of academic fields such as media theory, philosophy and critical theory, as well as works by practitioners of contemporary art. The publication includes contributions by Akram Zaatari, Amalia Ulman, Anne de Vries, Cecilia Grönberg, D-M Withers, Hannah Quinlan, Jenna Sutela, Karl-Magnus Johansson, Lori Emerson, Martin Kohout, Martine Syms, Monira al Qadiri, Rosie Hastings, and Yuk Hui.

➔Elegance: Notes on Communism

"Needing to spend time by myself, without surveillance, I sat naked in front of the window and stared at the sun. I wasn’t allowed to leave the room, but that room was all I ever needed. The light coming in was one of the most beautiful things I’ve ever seen. The orange hues brought peace and pierced my body with a reminder of independence: the sun is and will forever be free. If I was ever given the choice to recreate any moment of my life, it’d be the intoxification of falling in love, or a sunrise in Pyongyang."
