Event #7

February 5th, 2011 at 7.00 pm

An evening of casual conversations organized
by Robert Okuda Fitzpatrick at Archive Kabinett.
Dieffenbachstrasse 31. 10967 Kreuzberg-Berlin
Starts at 7pm

Simon Denny will screen an episode from the hit ‘90s sitcom, ‘The Fresh Prince of Bel Air Episode’ – the content of which was used for a recent body of work by Denny. In this episode the main character, played by Will Smith, has an idea to publish a photo book of Bel Air celebrity mansions to impress his girlfriend, that although intended for book publication, never makes into page form. The screening will be followed by a light conversation between the artist, Nicolas Ceccaldi (a contributor to Denny’s recent publication ‘Video Aquarium Broadcast’), and musician, Dan Bodan, who will discuss issues concerning the distribution of online image, text, media and knowledge content.

Jean-Michel Wicker, founder and editor of Le Edizioni Della China, will present new and recent artist’s fanzines and publications. Founded in 2006 in Nice under the name Le Edizioni Della Luna, the publishing house has been based in Berlin since 2009, and publishes irregular and random editions of fanzines, posters, cards, maps and xeroxes.

Karl Holmqvist will present a collection of new cds and vinyls, artist’s books and copy publications to look at, talk about, listen to, trade, sell and maybe even give away.

Lara Favaretto,
Momentary Monument I (The Swamp)

Momentary Monument is Turin-based artist Lara Favaretto’s first artist’s book,
an extension of her project of the same title, which was shown as part of the exhibition “Making Worlds / Fare Mondi” in the 53rd Venice Biennial, curated
by Daniel Birnbaum. Including texts by Daniel Birnbaum and Chris Sharp, this publication expands the project shown at the Venice Biennial. It is divided into three parts: the first is a prologue, explaining how a swamp is created; the central part tells the stories of twenty disappeared individuals, characters such as Dutch artist Bas Jan Ader, who was lost in sea in 1975; and an epilogue describing the change in the surrounding landscape of the swamp, which doesn’t quite look
the same.

Lara Favaretto (born Treviso, Italy, 1973) lives and works in Turin. Her works have been featured in the Sydney, Sharjah and Venice Biennials, the Torino Triennial, and exhibited in Castello di Rivoli, MOCA Los Angeles, and Palais de Tokyo, Paris.

The Exhibitionist

The Exhibitionist is a journal focusing solely on the practice of exhibition making.
Its objectives are to create a wider platform for the discussion of curatorial
concerns, encourage a diversification of curatorial models, and actively contribute
to the formation of a theory of curating. Issue No. 1, for example, includes texts
by curators on historical exhibitions; assessments of the 11th Istanbul Biennial
from four different viewpoints; texts reconsidering the idea of the solo show;
and texts by curators who discuss the curatorial process of recent exhibitions
they have worked on.
