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The Project for a Discourse of all Figures in Three Parts, previously unpublished and documented here in facsimile, is based on one of the blue school exercise books that Marcel Broodthaers (1924–76) worked on in Autumn 1970, after moving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.

Pierre Huyghe & Douglas Coupland: School SpiritPierre Huyghe & Douglas Coupland: School Spirit

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.

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.
