SEPT 26—28, 2014





SEPT 26—28


Now in its sixth year, this curated series of informal conversations, workshops, readings and other artist-led programs is also an informal venue for artists, writers and publishers to feature new releases and present their publications. The Classroom is organized by David Senior, Museum of Modern Art Library.


6:30-8:30 pm

Performance as Publishing

                Performance as Publishing is an artist-led research project, which investigates overlaps between performance practice, events, discourse and writing. The project explores the work of contemporary artists who use text and writing/speaking as a basis for their performance. This opening event in the Classroom includes performances by artists Rita Sobral Campos, Jeanine Oleson, Nicole Bachmann and Ruth Beale, poster works by Anna Barham and Fiona Banner, and a table with publications by past participants. The works will consider the flow between live and static, spoken and written, whilst questioning the qualities of performance and performativity. With kind support of Arts Council England and Pro Helvetia.


1:00-2:00 pm 

Lives and Videotapes launch, with Jon Ippolito and Marit Paasche 

                In conjunction with the launch of the book Lives and Videotapes: The Inconsistent History of Norwegian Video Art by Marit Paasche, artist, writer and curator Jon Ippolito presents his research on new media preservation, arguing that drastic change in technologies, institutions and laws is needed to prevent historical records of our era from becoming irretrievable. Marit Paasche will present Lives and Videotapes, which reveals how, why, and under what circumstances many of the early Norwegian video artworks came about – and what makes them important for posterity. The book, published by Feil forlag, is an integrated part of the archival project by Videokunstarkivet (The Norwegian Video Art Archive), which is carrying out an ambitious plan to preserve and make accessible a part of Norwegian art history threatened with oblivion. Presented by Feil Forlag. (Norway Focus)

2:00-3:00 pm

The Innermost, by Kurt Johannessen

                Kurt Johannessen will present a performance/lecture, “The Innermost,” based on the book with the same title. With the help of simple drawings, he tells about the innermost, the three spaces and the two movements of the universe, and how these movements and the innermost effect the different spaces. “The Innermost” is one of 7 performance/lectures/books in the series “About something.” (Norway Focus)

3:00-4:00 pm

Mark von Schlegell, Ickles, Etc.

                To celebrate the release of Mark von Schlegell’s new collection of theory-fictions, Ickles, Etc., the art writer and SciFi author will be in conversation with editor, architect, and curator Nikolaus Hirsch. In this book, the fifth installment of the Critical Spatial Practice series edited by Hirsch and Markus Miessen, info-architect Henries Ickles attempts to inject the ideals of Robert Heinlein’s supermodernist Quintus Teal into a yawning twenty-second century of augmented reality and peculiar eyewear. Fiction finds itself surviving past the death of theory, in a “sit-down comedy” of total speculation. With artwork by Louise Lawler. Presented by Sternberg Press.

4:00-5:00 pm

Mitre Marrows, by Pedro Gómez-Egaña

                In this performance Pedro Gómez-Egaña imagines being possessed by two automata that have fused together. Together they go over ideas of death, family and bicycles. This talk is part of the launch of the twin publication Dublett, dedicated to the work of Pedro Gómez-Egañ, commissioned by the Hordaland Art Centre. (Norway Focus)

5:00-6:00 pm

OHO and the Korean Avant-Garde Association by Ištvan Išt Huzjan

                OHO and the Korean Avant-Garde Association is a compilation of images from works of two neo-conceptual artistic movements from the late 60’s and early 70’s that have, despite geographic distance and no knowledge about each other, produced formally similar work. The publication is an artistic study of these similarities. As stated in the book’s colophon, the new owner of this book (in this case, MoMA Library) can request Huzjan to perform his piece OD TU DO TU, during which he will talk about the context of his research and his work in general. Huzjan’s performance is a simple gesture where the artist enters the chosen location and barefooted measures the distance between two random architectural elements chosen together by the artist and the person in possession of the book. Presented by MER. Paper Kunsthalle.

6:00-7:00 pm

Dorothy Iannone: You Who Read Me With Passion Now Must Forever Be My Friends with Trinie Dalton and Lisa Pearson

                The often-censored, self-taught octogenarian American artist Dorothy Iannone has been making exuberantly sexual, taboo-shattering and joyfully transgressive image+text works for over five decades, often drawing on autobiography and incorporating lovers and friends into her hybrid narratives. Siglio publisher Pearson will talk with critic and writer Trinie Dalton about Iannone’s provocative and pioneering work—now collected in the new publication as well as featured in an exhibition of her artist’s books in the Dome at PS1 during this year’s New York Art Book Fair. Presented by Printed Matter and Siglio Press.


12:00-1:00 pm

Here and Now by Ishiuchi Miyako

                The 2014 recipient of the Hasselblad Award for excellence in photography, Ishiuchi Miyako has been photographing artifacts from the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum archive since 2007. PPP Editions has published Here and Now, a limited edition artist’s book, presenting the most comprehensive survey of this on going project to date. To discuss this book and Ishiuchi’s Hiroshima project, the artist will be interviewed by Christopher Philips, Curator of Photography at ICP in New York. They will be joined by translator Linda Hoaglund, who produced Things Left Behind in 2013, a documentary film about the photographs Ishiuchi has made at the Hiroshima archive. Presented by Andrew Roth and PPP Editions.

1:00-2:00 pm

How to Hack an Abstraction: Google Warhol, a conversation with McKenzie Wark

                For the launch of a very special October issue of e-flux journal dedicated to Elizabeth Povinelli’s Quasi-Events, Brian Kuan Wood sits down with McKenzie Wark to discuss how the consolidation of finance and art asks for an update to the task of what Wark has termed the hacker class. If we take art as an expanded notion of design, how can we then intervene into the way contemporary capitalism steals our intellectual labor under the auspices of some mythical form/content divide? And how is that impossible when, after all, I am my own money? Presented by e-flux journal.

2:00-3:00 pm


                A group of special guests (TBA) will read/perform Deliverance: Writings on Postal Relations, a book chronicling Marc Fischer’s committed but fraught bond with Chicago’s Logan Square Post Office. The performance will convey the frustration, the anguish, the periodic and unexpected joy, and the frequent sorrow of Fischer, a man who mails a lot of stuff. A habitual letter writer and collector, Fischer started the initiative Public Collectors and is a member of Temporary Services, a group which makes and distributes publications as well as Half Letter Press, a publishing imprint and web-store; all of this necessitates frequent trips to the post office. Many will be able to commiserate with Fischer’s difficult postal relations, but for people in the audience who have never waited on line at the Post Office, well… this will be their moment to learn in a classroom setting. Presented by Soberscove Press.

3:00-4:00 pm

Visiting Heat Island with Isla Leaver-Yap

                Isla Leaver-Yap and friends present readings and interpretations of “Heat Island”, Issue #7 of The Happy Hypocrite, published by Book Works. “Heat Island” seeks to understand how our hands (as both digital and analogous devices) and our bodies physically traverse and negotiate knowledge. This event comprises a temporary assembly of individuals who are acutely and intelligently aware that what we choose to do with our bodies, how we express it alone or with others, can provide valuable cultural openings and resistances to bodily regulation, whether self-imposed or via external legislation. Presented by Book Works.

4:00-5:00 pm

True Laurels Live

                Using rap music as a foundation, True Laurels embraces the genre’s boundless trajectory where electronic and punk have began expanding its soundscapes.

8:00-9:00 pm


                Created by Norwegian artists Eline Mugaas and Elise Storsveen, Album is a Xerox magazine of found images precariously juxtaposed to tease out heavy themes such as the innocence of dream hunks, the arousing potential of nature, man’s journey down the trees, and the invention of the sleeping bag. Primary Information and Teknisk Industri AS will launch the first ten issues, which has been compiled into a massive and tantalizing 440 page tome. (Norway Focus)


11:15-11:45 am

PEE ON PRESIDENTS by Melanie Bonajo. Screening and Conversation with Melanie Bonajo and Bruno Ceschel

                Pee on Presidents is a collection of more then 500 photographs of peeing girls taken by Melanie Bonajo during 1998-2013. The series depicts in a humorous way empowering vulnerable moments of females searching for a hide out (or not) while peeing in public. Little fountains, turn into sculptures, into small gestures of reclaimed female freedom in urban space. The music is a protest song by ZaZaZoZo (Melanie Bonajo & Josep Marzolla) and released as a bonus track on their album Inua. In the song and video patterns of hierarchy, sexism, bureaucracy and patriarchal structures in our society are being ridiculed. It got banned by youtube.

12:00-1:00 pm

Ray Johnson: Nothing vs. Nothing, with Mark Bloch and Elizabeth Zuba

                Multi-media artist Mark Bloch and writer/editor Elizabeth Zuba, in conjunction with Zuba’s publication Not Nothing: Selected Writings by Ray Johnson, 1954-1994, bring together their distinct visual and literary perspectives to explore Ray Johnson’s innovative interpretations of “the book” and its relationship to his concept-practice of Nothing. Mail-, Pop-, Conceptual-artist Ray Johnson began making small, dense artists books in the 1950s; over the next 40 years the books went through a dimensional transformation that transcended the limits of space-time into simultaneously ephemeral and eternal ouroboroi of endless pages of return. “This third paragraph (…) has been cut out because it did not have the element of surprise like seeing the moon in the sky.” (Ray Johnson, 1967) Presented by Siglio Press.

1:00-2:00 pm

Printed Web #2, with Paul Soulellis

                Printed Web #2 presents 176 pages of web-to-print work by artists who use screen capture, image grab, search and site scrape.

Printed Web #2 contributors include James Bridle, Tan Lin, Angela Genusa, Daniel Temkin, Brian Droitcour, Cory Arcangel, Olia Lialina, John Zissovici, Constant Dullaart, Cheryl Sourkes and Rafaël Rozendaal. Presented by Library of the Printed Web.

2:00-3:00 pm

David Evan Frantz, Marie Høeg meets Klara Lidén and FRANK

                FRANK is an Oslo based platform run by the Norwegian artists Liv Bugge and Sille Storihle, established to nurture art and critical discourse revolving around gender issues, desire, and sexuality.

“Borrowing, Poaching, Plagiarising, Pirating, Stealing, Gleaning, Referencing, Leaking, Copying, Imitating, Adapting, Faking, Paraphrasing, Quoting, Reproducing, Using, Counterfeiting, Repeating, Cloning, Translating” with The Piracy Project

                The Piracy Project is an international publishing and exhibition project exploring the philosophical, legal and practical implications of book piracy and creative modes of production and circulation. Eva Weinmayr and Andrea Francke discuss The Piracy Collection as well as some of the cases that inspired the series of essays compiled in the Piracy Project’s new book – flexible by nature, it will respond to the path of the debate and be launched in consecutive versions.

5:00-6:00 pm

David Reinfurt on Bruno Munari, circa 1962

                Thus we can speak of ‘programmed’ art, and admire the kinetic sculptures that a man of a coming future will install in his house, in place of the old prints of the modern masterpieces reproduced. And if someone should observe that this is not painting, nor even sculpture, it should be of no concern. One could then start a contest to find a new name, but let us not be frightened by a question of names.

6:00-7:00 pm

Versions, by Max Stolkin

                Printed Matter marks the launch of the latest release in their Emerging Artists Publication Series with Versions, by Max Stolkin. Stolkin’s book is a concise treatment of infinite regress that pairs Hubble telescope deep-field imagery with found images of modernist stacking tables and several versions of the same story.

12:00-1:00 pm

The Art Book Review

Publishing as Research & Development

                Three web-based magazines meet to discuss online publishing as a research & development platform, as an impetus where need pushes technology in new ways. The conversation will grow from the specificities of building new publications to the development of new content such as collection and annotation features and user participation systems. Rather than focus on primarily on content or on the technical, this exchange will try and see how the two lead each other in new directions. With East of Borneo, Triple Canopy, and WdW Review. Presented by Witte de With.

5:00 – 6:00 pm


                Dirty Looks NYC, a platform for queer experimental film and video, celebrates the release of their first publication – CHECK YOUR VERNACULAR – with a performance and screening event featuring work by Dynasty Handbag, Narcissister, Colin Self and Chris E.

Printed Matter proudly presents an exhibition of Dorothy Iannone‘s artists’ books, with support from Air de Paris, Peres Projects and Siglio Press. The American-born, Berlin-based artist is famous for her whimsical, colorful and, perhaps most importantly, explicit depictions of female sexuality – which have, since the 1960s, often fell prey to censorship. This exhibition, in the Dome at PS1, showcases a selection of Iannone’s artist books and printed ephemera, and Printed Matter and Dorothy Iannone have also produced a Fundraising Edition to support the NY Art Book Fair.  

Andrew Roth in association with PPP Editions presents two new books: Watanabe Katsumi’s Rock Punk Disco 1960s – 1980s including black-and-white photographs shot at night in dance and strip clubs in Shinjuku, along with excerpts of Watanabe’s writing from Discology, published in 1982. Here and Now: Atomic Bomb Artifacts, ひろしま/Hiroshima 1945/2007—is a new limited edition artist book by Ishiuchi Miyako printing 230 color photographs of clothing and personal effects that survived the blast and were gifted to the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum Archive by the families of the deceased.

Boo-Hooray presents The Tattooed Dragon Meets The Wolfman – the science fiction fanzine collection of Lenny Kaye, member of The Patti Smith Group, legendary compiler of Nuggets, music historian, and a once-teenage SF fanzine editor/publisher/contributor.
Ranging from 1941 to 1969, these fanzines represent ground zero for the zine explosion that was to come years later in rock, punk, skate, fashion, and art. Primarily published on mimeograph machines, science-fiction fanzines were initially small-run circulars traded amongst fans that offered criticism, letters to the editor, and gossip from the 1930s up until digital. This visionary amateur art is outside the realm of anything we’ve ever seen.
Bruce Silverstein Gallery presents Book by Book: 2nd Edition, an installation by the renowned book artist, Keith A. Smith. The exhibition will be comprised of unique and editioned books, prints, and photographs from the 1960s-2014. Additionally, Smith has created three images to be released as special editions in conjunction with the fair. Smith’s earliest books from the 1960s set the bar for the possibilities within this art form. Additionally, his influence as a teacher and author on the subjects of alternative bookbinding and structure is widespread; this exhibition will be an opportunity to view his acclaimed methods and process that have inspired artists over the decades.

Norwegian platform FRANK, run by the artists Liv Bugge and Sille Storihle, presents Marie Høeg Meets Klara Lidén. In the 1980s a box of glass negatives was found in a barn in Eastern Norway; the person behind these rediscovered images proved to be Marie Høeg (1866-1949), a Norwegian suffragist and photographer. In this exhibition, FRANK pairs Høeg’s photographs, challenging normative notions of gender in the late 19thand early 20th century, with work by contemporary Swedish artist Klara Lidén. The pairing suggests dislocating the narration of history as linear progression through humor, play, and sly performativity.  
Iván Navarro and Hueso Records presents The Music Room, a site specific installation allowing fairgoers to listen to the work of non-musicians who maintain an audio practice as an extension of their body of work. The sounds that emerge out of these collaborative recordings are informed by the diverse visual and conceptual experiences from a range of artists, architects, graphic designers and thinkers.

Nieves is celebrating 10 Years of Nieves Zines. All 200 zines published since 2004 are shown together for the first time. Aaron Rose writes: “Nieves could possibly be considered the world’s first “zine” publishing company. Never before has one person and a black and white photocopier been responsible for such a prolific body of work spanning such a diverse group of artists”.


A lively selection of international artists, zinesters, and small presses will represent independent publishing at its most innovative and affordable in the MoMA PS1 courtyard. Exhibitors include:
