Under the Sign of {sic} Sturtevant’s volte-face

Sturtevant was a visual artist, who was based for the longest part of her career in New York. In the 1960s Elaine Sturtevant began operating an art practice in which she meticulously copied selected works of her male colleagues. Her practice was a critique of the culture of the art world in which she was working, one that was dominated by the concept of the lone genius, autonomous, white male creator. From the beginning she dropped her first name to subvert the concept of the identity of a female artist. In Hainley’s study he recalls the early performances by Sturtevant including The Store of Claes OldenburgPicabias’ Ballet Relache and the ambiguous reception of her work at the time.

On a rug a number of balls formed out of clean white snow are placed very orderly in relation to their size. One of them David Hammons holds in his hand. The others are in front of him displayed for sale on the ground. This performance was staged in 1983 in New York on a corner of Cooper Square amongst other street sellers. Elena Filipovic gathers material documenting this iconic piece, part of an oeuvre that has only recently become well known. She places Hammon’s work, purposefully elusive and hard to grasp, in the context of his critique of questions of race in the United States and in the mechanisms of the Art World.

This book is a collection of essays by Teju Cole, an American writer and photographer. These essays reflect on his experience of being black and living a cosmopolitan lifestyle in an (only sometimes) cosmopolitan world. It’s an analysis of writing, music, conversations, places and images that he loves or that have disturbed him. When Cole considers each of these he translates his responses into a kind of personal archive, that counteracts rootlessness and condenses them into something that has shared meaning.

Testo Junkie – Sex, Drugs, and Biopolitics in the Pharmacopornographic Era – published 2007 in Spanish and French, translated into English in 2013, is an uncompromised document of the nearly year-long self experiment with synthetic testosterones and its lasting effects. The writer and philosopher Paul B. Preciado shares the intimate radical shifts he undergoes while becoming ‘man / male’ and juxtaposes this document of his political performance with an analyses of how concepts of gender in society are shaped by the pharmaceutical and pornography industries. Preciado continues where Michel Foucault left with The History of Sexuality.

Read Thread is an artist book by Cecilia Vicuna, a writer and visual artist, that invites us to follow the thread beyond the western linear idea of time towards an endless movement of celestial patterns and its reflection in the human and landscape body. Vicuna, who left Chile 1973 during the dictatorship first for London, lived then in Bogota and after in New York, refers back to different indigenous concepts and techniques, which she poetically and politically interprets and places in tension with the current ecological and economical disaster.
