ABOUT ERIK VAN DER WEIJDE'S WINDOW INSTALLATION
Since 2003, photographer and book artist Erik van der Weijde has published more than 50 books and zines under his own 4478ZINE imprint or in collaboration with small presses including ROMA, Rollo and Camera Austria. For his NYABF installation in the window between the ARTBOOK @ MoMA PS1 Bookstore and M. Wells Dinette (on the ground floor of the museum), he has selected four books on seemingly disparate themes and hung them in an abstract, grid-like pattern so that only their monochromatic, linen-bound covers register visual connections. Relationships between the books' photographic subjects—Third Reich architecture in southern Germany, vernacular table design from around the world, German architecture in Brazil and a boy sleeping in his bed at night—are for the viewer to make intuitively. Van der Weijde will customize copies of one of the featured titles, Pomerode in the ARTBOOK @ MoMA PS1 Magazine Store Saturday, September 19 from 4-5PM. (See below.)
EVENTS & BOOK SIGNINGS
THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 17, 6-9 PM
FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 18
4-5:30 PM: Conveyor will launch issue 7, Time Travel in the Magazine Store. Exploring time travel by employing the camera as a time machine, Conveyor 7 features Matthew C. Lange, Jeremy Haik, Rachel Sussman, Susannah Saylor & Ed Morris of The Canary Project, Felicia Hokansalo, Jonathon Keats, Katie Paterson, Burkhard von Harder, Susan Dobson (of Pictured Past Preset Future), and more!
6-7PM: Mike Mandel and Christian Patterson will sign Good 70s and Bottom of the Lake in the Magazine Store, following their consecutive 4-5PM and 5-6PM talks in David Senior's Classroom series.
Good 70s is a boxed collection of new facsimile editions of Mandel's classic self-publications of the 1970s.
Bottom of the Lake is a facsimile of artist Christian Patterson's family telephone book with inserts by the artist.
SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 19
3-4 PM: Jesper Haynes will sign copies of his books, St. Marks 1986-2006, New York Darkroom, Shibuya Scramble and GIG, plus his zine, Haynesville, in the Magazine Store.
Haynes began documenting his life 41 years ago, at the age of 12. Since arriving in New York City in the early 1980s, he has photographed his life in the East Village, Bangkok, Stockholm and Tokyo and collected the images in these self-published books and zines.
4-5 PM: Erik van der Weijde will sign a range of titles in the Magazine Store while transforming copies of his newest book, Pomerode, into a unique new object with the help of scissors, colored paper and glue—materials that are not usually part Van der Weijde’s practice. This translation of a figurative series into an abstract work will mirror Van der Weijde's installation in the ARTBOOK @ MoMA PS1 Bookstore window.
8-9 PM: Foundations Magazine will launch issue 3, Genre, guest edited by Carly Mark and featuring Florine Mark on the cover, in the Magazine Store. Focused on removing genres like “Postinternet” and “New Media,” as well as larger-scale categories of classification relating to gender and social constructs, Foundations 3 features work by Bridget Donahue, Carly Mark, Guan Xiao, Jamian Juliano-Villani, Trudy Benson, Dwyer Kilcollin, Aria McManus and Maggie Lee.
SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 20
2-3:30PM: Capricious Magazine will launch issue 16, Ex, covering ex-lovers, ex-personas, ex-places, ex-lives and more. This issue features work by 40 photographers including Hervé Guibert, Linnéa Sjöberg, Rose Hartman,
Sunil Gupta, David Goldblatt and Lee Friedlander. Essays are by essays by Sophie Morner, Anika Sabin and others.
