Liu Heung Shing: A Life in a Sea of RedLiu Heung Shing: A Life in a Sea of Red

Published by Steidl.
Text by Pi Li, Christopher Phillips, Geoff Raby, Liu Heung Shing.

This book contains the two most important bodies of work by Pulitzer Prize–winning photojournalist Liu Heung Shing (born 1951): photos that document pivotal decades of Communism in China and Russia, made between 1976 and 2017. A Life in a Sea of Red presents scenes of hope, hardship and change under—and in the aftermath of—Communist rule.

Liu arrived in Beijing in 1978 on assignment for Time magazine to photograph the country at a moment of momentous transition—from the withdrawal of Mao’s portraits from the public realm, to the increase in free commercial, artistic and personal expression, to the violence in Tiananmen Square in 1989 and, more recently, the rise of Chinese yuppies.

In contrast, Liu’s photos of Russia, taken between 1990 and 1993, document the collapse of a Communist state. The most enduring of these shows Gorbachev throwing down the speech he delivered on December 25, 1991, announcing his resignation and signaling the end of the Soviet Union and Cold War.

Paul Chan: Selected Writings 2000-2014Paul Chan: Selected Writings 2000-2014

Published by Schaulager, Laurenz Foundation/Badlands Unlimited.
Edited by George Baker, Eric Banks with Isabel Friedli, Martina Venanzoni. Introduction by George Baker.

The work of Paul Chan (born 1973) has charted a course in contemporary art as unpredictable and wide-ranging as the thinking that grounds his practice. Paul Chan: Selected Writings 2000–2014 collects the critical essays and artist’s texts that first appeared in Artforum, October, Texte zur Kunst and Frieze, among other publications, as well as previously unpublished speeches and language-based works. From the comedy of artistic freedom in Duchamp to the contradictions that bind aesthetics and politics, Chan’s writings revel in the paradoxes that make the experience of art both vexing and pleasurable. He lays bare the ideas and personalities that motivate his work by reflecting on artists as diverse as Henry Darger, Chris Marker, Sigmar Polke and Paul Sharits, and grapples with writers and thinkers who have played decisive roles in his practice, including Theodor Adorno, Samuel Beckett and the Marquis de Sade.

Rolling the R'sRolling the R's

Published by Kaya Press.
By R. Zamora Linmark.

Illuminated by pop fantasies, Donna Summer disco tracks and teen passion, the fiercely earnest characters in Rolling the R’s come to life against a background of burning dreams and neglect in a small 1970s Hawaiian community. In his daring first novel, R. Zamora Linmark treats the music of the Bee Gees and schoolyard bullying as equally formative experiences in the lives of a group of Filipino fourth-graders living in Kalihi, Honolulu, who call themselves the "Farrah Fawcett Fan Club." The characters’ stories unfold largely in the documentary detritus of their lives—their poems and prayers, book reports and teacher evaluations—all written in carefully observed, pitch-perfect vernacular. Now back in stock, Linmark’s tour-de-force experiments in narrative structure, pidgin and perspective roll every "are," throwing new light on gay identity and the trauma of cultural assimilation. Rolling the R’s goes beyond "coming of age" and "coming out" to address the realities of cultural confusion, prejudice and spiraling levels of desire in humorous yet haunting portrayals that are, as Matthew Stadler writes, "stylish, shameless and beautiful." This special twentieth anniversary edition includes a new essay by the author, introducing one of the most original and iconic stories of the Asian diasporic experience and an essential work of fiction in the Asian American literary canon.
R. Zamora Linmark (born 1968) is a writer and poet currently based in Honolulu and Manila. He has published three poetry collections, two novels and adapted Rolling the R’s for the stage in 2008.

So Many Olympic ExertionsSo Many Olympic Exertions

Published by Kaya Press.
By Anelise Chen.

Named one of 5 Writers Under 35 by National Book Foundation, 2019

Blending elements of memoir and sports writing, Anelise Chen’s debut novel is an experimental work that perhaps most resembles what the ancient Greeks called hyponemata, or “notes to the self,” in the form of observations, reminders and self-exhortations. Taken together, these notes constitute a personal handbook on “how to live”––or perhaps more urgently “why to live,” a question the narrator, graduate student Athena Chen, desperately needs answering. When Chen hears news that her brilliant friend from college has committed suicide, she is thrown into a fugue of fear and doubt. Through anecdotes and close readings of moments in the sometimes harrowing world of sports, the novel questions the validity of our current narratives of success.

Anelise Chen earned her BA in English from UC Berkeley and her MFA in Fiction from NYU. Her fiction, essays and interviews have appeared in The New York Times, Gawker, NPR and elsewhere. She currently teaches writing at Columbia University.

Sarah Sze: CentrifugeSarah Sze: Centrifuge

Published by Walther König, Köln.
Edited with text by Okwui Enwezor. Text by Damian Lentini, Julie Mehretu, Zadie Smith.

Centrifuge is a new site-specific installation by New York–based artist Sarah Sze (born 1969) in the Middle Hall of the Haus der Kunst in Munich. The piece commences from a fixed point and dynamically morphs outward into the surrounding space, shifting in scale and density as its various components unravel. Both constructed and off-the-shelf objects and materials—ranging from mirrors, wood, salt, bamboo and stainless steel to archival pigment prints, projectors and ceramics—are arranged into a series of sculptural groupings. On her approach to sculpture, Sze states in an interview with Okwui Enwezor (curator of the show), "a work should be constantly in a state of flux in terms of how it exists in space, how it exists in time; it should be unclear whether it's in a process of becoming or a process of entropy."

The Incarceration of Japanese Americans

Edited by Evan Backes. Foreword by Pico Iyer. Introduction by Nancy Matsumoto.

"This sorry episode has been illuminated in books and documentaries. But I've never felt its emotional texture—the unexpected mix of dereliction and upstanding hopefulness—so vividly as in this set of photographs taken by Ansel Adams and Dorothea Lange and five others, among them an artist incarcerated at Manzanar." –Pico Iyer

Sarah Sze: TimekeeperSarah Sze: Timekeeper

Published by Gregory R. Miller & Co..
Text by Christopher Bedford, Hal Foster, Katy Siegel, Renata Salecl, Hito Steyerl.

For over 20 years Sarah Sze (born 1969) has produced celebrated works of art, synthesizing a near boundless range of everyday materials into intricate constructions that are both delicate and overwhelming. Sze's latest site-specific installation at the Rose Art Museum, Timekeeper, combines sculpture, video and installation into a sprawling experiential work that approaches some of the most complex themes of her career: time's passage and its marking in mechanical and biological forms.

The Timekeeper installation was a catalyst for a book which explores major new ideas in Sze's work and practice. The ambitious work is extensively documented here alongside significant new texts on Sze, her work and the experience of time.

WaylaidWaylaid

Published by Kaya/Muae.
Text by Lin, Ed.

Waylaid is the story of a Chinese American boy who struggles to grow up in the grip of an overcharged sexual environment. With a daily routine that involves renting out rooms to johns and hookers at his parents' sleazy hotel, the narrator loses his grip on concepts of friendship, family and childhood. As he pursues his all-consuming quest to lose his virginity, issues of race, class and sex cripple his sense of self-worth. It is a story told with a Gen-X-style bleak humor that doesn't pander to conventional notions of immigrant narrative. Waylaid doesn't cut a wide swath through Asian American literature. It is a switchblade in the gut to stories of over-achievement and success in America that ignore the human cost.
