We Learn at HomeWe Learn at Home

Published by DUNG BEETLE LTD.
By Miriam Elia.

In We Learn at Home, Miriam Elia’s follow-up to last year’s hit We Go to the Gallery, Mummy takes John and Susan out of their local school to be reeducated at home—though not before tagging the walls of St. James’ Primary with the words “Fascist Scum.” In order to introduce their young minds to a new, alternative worldview, Mummy will ground all learning in a feelings-based outlook, free of any actual facts or skills, and reevaluate core subjects such as mathematics, religion, philosophy and art. John and Susan burn the Union Jack, debate and learn to paint their inner children. Key vocabulary for young readers includes terms such as “Marx” and “Buddha.”
Pocket-sized, printed in bold colors and written in clear, simple English, the Dung Beetle Learning series pays tribute to and skewers the much-loved British Ladybird early learning children’s books of the 1960s, with our child protagonists learning about contemporary art and politics rather than helping their parents around the house. In We Go to the Gallery, Susan found that the decay of Western civilization smells like rubbish, John learned that some toys are only for venture capitalists and the siblings discovered that God is dead. What new lessons will Mummy teach?

Marcel BroodthaersMarcel Broodthaers

An Attempt to Retell the Story By Jürgen Harten

Published by Walther König, Köln.

The Project for a Discourse of all Figures in Three Parts, previously unpublished and documented here in facsimile, is based on one of the blue school exercise books that Marcel Broodthaers (1924–76) worked on in Autumn 1970, after moving from Brussels to Düsseldorf. Tucked away in each of these originals is an envelope containing a 100 mark note from which the eagle has been cut out. The project recalls the founding of the legendary Musée d’Art Moderne Département des Aigles in 1968 and formulates ideas which Broodthaers would go on to realize in 1972 in the Kunsthalle in Düsseldorf in the "Section des Figures" of his institutional fiction. Curator and art historian Jürgen Harten describes his collaboration with Broodthaers on this project in this unique artist’s book and narrative hybrid, addressing the artistic and art-critical questions with which Broodthaers’ project confronted us.

Anya Davidson: School SpiritsAnya Davidson: School Spirits

Published by PictureBox.

Chicago-based artist and musician Anya Davidson (born 1983) is the author of numerous zines and mini-comics and was a member of the cult favorite band Coughs. School Spirits is her idiosyncratic and captivating debut full-length graphic novel. Described by the author as “Beavis and Butthead meets James Joyce’s Ulysses,” it is the story of Oola, a high school student with an unusual connection to the supernatural. Comprised of four chapters, each deploying a different narrative technique, School Spirits is at once funny, sexy, mystical and, above all, utterly readable. Davidson’s crisp cartooning style makes even the strangest occurrences somehow seem plausible. This publication is sure to appeal to Davidson’s existing extensive underground following, as well as to fans of the farther reaches of contemporary graphic fiction.

Encounters

Published by Dis Voir.
In Collaboration with Douglas Coupland.

Dis Voir’s Encounters series invites a well-known contemporary artist to choose a subject for a book. The artist also selects a person with "elective affinities"--someone with whom he or she would like to share this exchange. The resulting collaborative volumes serve as an artistic and political laboratory of the present. For this first installment, French artist Pierre Huyghe choose Canadian writer Douglas Coupland, author of Generation X, for the influence that Coupland has had on his generation, and on Huyghe's own work. Using a high school yearbook as scaffolding for their meditations, they discuss the construction of character, narrative techniques based on chance and the political dimensions of Coupland's work--themes that are also fundamental questions for Huyghe's projects.

We Go OutWe Go Out

Published by DUNG BEETLE LTD.
By Miriam Elia, Ezra Elia.

In We Go Out, Mummy takes Susan and John out for an exciting day trip in London as part of their new reeducation program. Looking, thinking and reevaluating the world around them is a crucial part of any child’s core development, and John and Susan are no exception. A simple stroll down the local high street is magically illuminated by Mummy’s insights into the nature of society, religion, art and the various other forms of hierarchal or patriarchal oppression. In this volume, John and Susan—and their readers following along at home—learn about gender, homelessness, public sculpture, luxury redevelopments and property values, among many other valuable life lessons for today.
Impeccably dressed and well behaved, Mummy and her children have been ripped from their comfortable middle-class midcentury environment and deposited into the contemporary world, still speaking in the polite vocabulary that characterized the popular Ladybird series. The caricature is so pitch-perfect that the 2014 limited edition of We Go to the Gallery was threatened with a lawsuit by Penguin UK (owners of the Ladybird imprint), which was withdrawn following a change in UK copyright law allowing for parody and satire.

Blueprint for Counter EducationBlueprint for Counter Education

Published by Inventory Press.
By Maurice R. Stein, Larry Miller and Marshall Henrichs. Text by Paul Cronin, Adam Michaels, Jeffrey Schnapp.

Radical pedagogy from Bauhaus to Black Mountain: a defining document of '60s counterculture
Maurice R. Stein and Larry Miller’s Blueprint for Counter Education is one of the defining (but neglected) works of radical pedagogy of the Vietnam War era. Originally published as a boxed set by Doubleday in 1970, the book was accompanied by large graphic posters that could serve as a portable learning environment for a new process-based model of education, and a bibliography and checklist that map patterns and relationships between radical thought and artistic practices—from the modernist avant-gardes to postmodernism, from the Bauhaus to Black Mountain College, from Theodor Adorno and Walter Benjamin to Buckminster Fuller and Norman O. Brown—with Herbert Marcuse and Marshall McLuhan serving as points of anchorage. Blueprint for Counter Education thus serves as a vital synthesis of the numerous intellectual currents in the countercultural debate on the radical reform of schools, universities and ways of learning. To accompany this new facsimile edition of the book and posters, an 80-page booklet features a conversation with the original Blueprint creators, Maurice R. Stein, Larry Miller and designer Marshall Henrichs, as well as essays from Jeffrey Schnapp, Paul Cronin and notes on the design by Adam Michaels of Project Projects.
Marshall Henrichs is a painter as well as a graphic designer; he studied with Richard Lindner, Walter Murch, George McNeil and Fredrico Castellon at the Pratt Institute. After graduation, he worked for several major New York publishers including Doubleday, where he served as art director. Among his editorial projects were various mainstream projects but also counterculture outliers such as Blueprint for Counter Education and Ira Einhorn's 78–187880 (Doubleday, 1972).
Larry Miller, sociologist, was a member of the editorial collectives of the New American Movement newspaper and the journal Socialist Revolution/Socialist Review. He has written about major theorists and writers such as Marx, Gramsci, Althusser and Machiavelli.
Maurice R. Stein is an American sociologist and innovator in higher education. Stein is co-recipient of the 1987 Robert and Helen Lynd Lifetime Achievement Award bestowed by the American Sociological Association’s Community and Urban Sociology Section. Retired from Brandeis University since 2002, Stein resides in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
Paul Cronin is the editor of On Film-Making: An Introduction to the Craft of the Director (2004), a collection of writings by British director Alexander Mackendrick; Werner Herzog’s A Guide for the Perplexed (2014), an interview book with the German director; and Lessons with Kiarostami (2014), based on workshops conducted by Iranian director Abbas Kiarostami. His films include “Look out Haskell, it’s real!” The Making of Medium Cool (2001; re-edited 2013), Film as a Subversive Art: Amos Vogel and Cinema 16 (2003), In the Beginning was the Image: Conversations with Peter Whitehead (2006) and A Time to Stir (forthcoming, 2017), a 15-hour historical documentary about the student protests at Columbia University in 1968.
Adam Michaels is the cofounder of New York–based design studio Project Projects and the founder of Inventory Press. His work focuses on the active synthesis of typography and images—as well as editorial and design work—as a means of conveying significant content to diverse audiences. Project Projects works on books, exhibitions, identity systems and websites with clients such as the Canadian Centre for Architecture, MoMA, SALT Istanbul and Steven Holl Architects, and has been chosen twice as a finalist for the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Awards. The studio's work has been widely published, and its principals have lectured and taught both nationally and internationally. The third and most recent title in the Inventory Books series is The Electric Information Age Book: McLuhan/Agel/Fiore and the Experimental Paperback, by Jeffrey T. Schnapp and Adam Michaels, which was further elaborated upon as a full-length vinyl LP entitled The Electric Information Age Album.
Before moving to Harvard in 2011, Jeffrey T. Schnapp occupied the Pierotti Chair of Italian at Stanford University, where he founded the Stanford Humanities Lab in 1999. A cultural historian, designer and curator, he is the author of over 20 books and hundreds of essays. His most recent books are The Electric Information Age Book (Princeton Architectural Press, 2012); Modernitalia (Peter Lang, 2012); and Digital_Humanities (MIT Press, 2012), coauthored with Anne Burdick, Johanna Drucker, Peter Lunenfeld and Todd Presner. The Library beyond the Book, coauthored with Matthew Battles, was published by Harvard University Press in 2014. Schnapp is professor of romance literatures at Harvard, where he also teaches in the Department of Architecture at the Graduate School of Design, in addition to directing metaLAB and codirecting the Berkman Center for Internet and Society.

Great Expectations: Prospects for the Future of Curatorial EducationGreat Expectations: Prospects for the Future of Curatorial Education

Published by Koenig Books.
Edited by Leigh Markopoulos.

Almost 30 years after the founding of the first curatorial studies program (at the École du Magasin, Grenoble), with the curator remaining a figure of curiosity and fascination in the contemporary art world, a new question has emerged: how do we educate curators? Great Expectations: Prospects for the Future of Curatorial Education explores this question, focusing in particular on the challenges, opportunities and subjects that motivate educators and students. How has curatorial education changed in the past 25 years, and what will the next 25 years bring?
The product of a spring 2015 conference at the California College of the Arts, this volume, edited by Leigh Markopoulos, brings together contributions from Mark Beasley, Maeve Connolly, María del Carmen Carrión, Kit Hammonds, Matthew Higgs, Anthony Huberman, Prem Krishnamurthy, Mami Kataoka, Kristina Lee Podesva, Salwa Mikdadi, Julian Myers-Szupinska and Ulay, among others.

Notes on My Dunce CapNotes on My Dunce Cap

Published by Pioneer Works Press.
By Jesse Ball.

A text for those curious about education as a context for creativity and collaboration, and for teachers who want to reconsider hierarchy in their classrooms, Jesse Ball’s Notes on My Dunce Cap includes advisory material regarding the creation of syllabi and the manner in which groups may evaluate the work of an individual without harm. Ball is renowned for the unique courses he teaches at the Art Institute of Chicago, which are compiled in this volume along with extended notes on pedagogy. His meditations consider pedagogy in terms that are at once usefully broad and insightfully profound: "When it is possible for any of us to simply go and sit somewhere in the grass, and when it is such a delightful thing to do, to go and sit in the grass, whether by oneself or with others, then it is important to remember that anytime we think about teaching, or indeed, about any other activity—that we do it instead of sitting somewhere in the grass. We are passing up on the joy of solitude, and all its virtues and pleasures. Therefore, it is crucial that what happens when we teach be of the same value as time spent alone. And that is true both for ourselves and for those we teach."
Jesse Ball (born 1978) is the author of five novels, including The Curfew, Silence Once Begun and A Cure for Suicide, which was longlisted for the 2015 National Book Award, as well as several collections of poetry, including March Book. His work has appeared in numerous publications including The New Republic, The Paris Review, Oberon, Circumference and Guernica Magazine.

ArtCenter TalksArtCenter Talks

Graduate Seminar, The First Decade 1986–1995

Published by ArtCenter Graduate Press / David Zwirner Books.
Edited with introduction by Stan Douglas. Foreword by Diana Thater, Jason E. Smith. Contributions by Beth B, Rosetta Brooks, Luís Castro Leiva, Meg Cranston, Charles Gaines, Jack Goldstein, et al.

This collection of never-before-published talks at one of the leading art schools in the United States documents an exciting decade in the development of contemporary art and arts education, featuring interviews with renowned artists, curators and writers Beth B, Rosetta Brooks, Luís Castro Leiva, Meg Cranston, Charles Gaines, Jack Goldstein, Felix Gonzalez-Torres, Susan Hiller, Roni Horn, Kellie Jones, Mike Kelley, Justen Ladda, Thomas Lawson, Sylvère Lotringer, John Miller, Constance Penley, Brian Routh, Mira Schor, Allan Sekula, Robert Storr and Lynne Tillman.
Launched in 1986, the Graduate Art Department of the ArtCenter College of Design, in Pasadena, California, celebrates its 30th anniversary in 2016. This book documents the first decade of the department’s existence by presenting a selection from over 300 talks. Discussions between students and faculty members range from what it means to be an artist and the changing role of art in society, to how artists function within an academic setting.
Alongside the talks, this volume also includes reproductions of slides used by participants, offering a sense of the context and spirit of the original seminars.

Since the late 1980s, Stan Douglas (b. 1960, Vancouver) has created films, photographs, and installations that reexamine particular locations or past events. His works often take their points of departure in local settings, from which broader issues can be identified. Making frequent use of both analog and digital technologies, Douglas appropriates existing Hollywood genres and borrows from classic literary works to create ready-made contextual frameworks for his complex, reimagined narratives that pertain to specific places or historical events. Since 2009, Douglas has been a core faculty member of the Graduate Art Department of ArtCenter College of Design in Pasadena, California.

Jason E. Smith is currently associate chair of the Graduate Art MFA program at ArtCenter College of Design. His writing and research are largely concerned with contemporary art and aesthetics, philosophy, and political thought. He has published in Artforum, The Brooklyn Rail, Critical Inquiry, Parrhesia, Radical Philosophy, and South Atlantic Quarterly, among other journals and publications.

Diana Thater is a Los Angeles-based artist who has created pioneering film, video, and installation-based works since the early 1990s. Her primary emphasis is on the tension between the natural environment and mediated reality, and by extension, between tamed and wild, and science and magic. Thater earned her MFA from the ArtCenter College of Design. She now serves as chair of ArtCenter’s Graduate Art MFA program.

The ClassroomThe Classroom

From the Late 19th Century Until the Present Day

Published by Wasmuth.
Text by Thomas Müller, Romana Schneider.

Taking as its epigraph the architect Hans Scharoun's aphorism that "young people want to be inspired, not taught," The Classroom shows how furniture designers from the late nineteenth century to the present have strived to enliven the classroom experience for children, telling for the first time the history of this neglected area of furniture design. The book is based on the collection of the VS school museum in Tauberbischofsheim, which houses a unique collection of school furniture from Germany and abroad. Through this collection, it draws out the fascinating tale of educational theory and school architecture over the past hundred years, tracing the ascent of a child-centered approach to education and attendant developments in design, as well as such topics as the use of propaganda in Soviet- and Nazi-era schools. Chairs, desks, classrooms and entire schools by Alvar Aalto, Arne Jacobsen, Charles Rennie Mackintosh, Jean-Baptiste Mathon, Jean Prouvé, Eero + Eliel Saarinen and Bruno Taut are abundantly illustrated and examined. The Classroom looks back over this history and looks forward to possible future developments.
