The Time of Discretion' is an intimate, slow and relational time. It is also an artistic project, at its first chapter. Besides Italy, it has been developed in the remote areas on the south-east border of the Gobi Desert and in the Guizhou Province (South China), in search of rituals, ancient textile practices or together in one.0The research documented here crosses experience and representation, dramatically compares East and West, advancing a dense theoretical scenario in relation to globalization processes.

The textile art from northern Borneo, made by the Iban, Kantu, Ketungau, and Mualang tribes, is highly distinctive and extraordinarily rich. In this remarkable book, more than 150 full-page brilliant color photographs of textiles from one of the world’s outstanding private collections shed new light on this timeless tradition. The works are ceremonial textiles used in rites of passage—birth, marriage, death—dyed with natural colors and woven in traditional ikat techniques; many have never been published before. Clothing worn during those ceremonies is also represented. As unmistakable as it is colorful, this Southeast Asian textile tradition remains influential for contemporary textile artists and designers.

Description :


Points of view from different continents of the globe tell of the dynamics of identity in contexts that have struggled historically to find a pattern in which a land and a community can recognize themselves, to identify a codex marked by collective memory and common historical, sociological, and even psychological features. Today, this search for signs of belonging represents an experience of unprecedented urgency, taking place in an international landscape laden with appropriations, cultural influences, and hybridization that are spontaneous and not necessarily sought after, and that are perhaps due to commercial opportunism or to the unstable, fluid reality of the digital world.??Valentina Gensini 0Is it still possible to speak about identity in a strongly globalized context, marked by uprooting, mobility and migration? The re-emergence of nationalism reveals a new urgency concerning the sense of belonging that contradicts existing cultural hybridization. The international seminar and exhibition cycle, held at Le Murate. Progetti Arte Contemporanea in Florence in 2018, aimed to provide insights, analysis and reflections about global identity dynamics, with particular attention to cultural production, the hybridization of languages and postcolonial narratives. The publication is a collection of the essays and lectures by the speakers who took part in this crucial artistic and cultural event.

- Never-seen-before textiles with a wide appeal - Accompanies major exhibition of Greek Island embroideries at the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford - dates to be confirmed Embroideries from the Greek islands dazzle with their bright colors and charming motifs. This publication reveals little-known pieces from the Ashmolean Museum at the University of Oxford, newly photographed and published here for the first time. The embroideries include fragments of pillowcases, bed valances, tents and curtains, as well as items of dress. As with all collections of textiles, the story of the Ashmolean holdings is chiefly about their makers and their ingenuity. Once forming the bulk of bridal trousseaux, Greek embroidered textiles were produced and maintained by young and old women for themselves and the house using locally produced materials. A mark of their worth and a platform for self-expression, embroidered textiles also helped Greek women to negotiate their place in the community, signaling status and affiliation.

Description :


'Time' and 'world' are such familiar concepts that we rarely take their fragility into account. The rhythm of time and the feeling of the presence of a world provide us with a metaphysical landscape where we might be able to live – a place where reality makes enough sense to be existentially navigable. Several different worlds have emerged throughout history, each with its own range of what seemed possible and reasonable to do, to think and to imagine. Each of them has survived only as long as there have been voices singing out their metaphysical rhythm, and it has vanished together with the silencing of their world-song, leaving behind only ruins. At times, culture has to operate in a world that is about to exhaust its historical arc, speeding towards a horizon turned into a wall. What can a world say, when its only audience belongs to a time that will come after the end of the future? How can a world think about the cultural heritage of its own ruins? Throughout history, a tradition has been able to speak across time-segments. Its grotesque style of culture has carried forward a multi-dimensional cosmology, nestled within every speck of reality. A constant insurrection against the rule of mortality, which severs the solidarity between worlds, prophetic culture is a vessel sailing eternally over the boundaries between worlds. Perhaps, it might be possible also for us, today, to speak through its voice to those 'adolescents' who will inhabit a new world and a new time, somewhere beyond the approaching wall of the future.

Description :


We take for granted that only certain kind of things exist – electrons but not angels, passports but not nymphs. This is what we understand as 'reality'. But in fact, 'reality' varies with each era of the world, in turn shaping the field of what is possible to do, think and imagine. Our contemporary age has embraced a troubling and painful form of reality: Technic. Under Technic, the foundations of reality begin to crumble, shrinking the field of the possible and freezing our lives in an anguished state of paralysis. Technic and Magic shows that the way out of the present deadlock lies much deeper than debates on politics or economics. By drawing from an array of Northern and Southern sources – spanning from Heidegger, Junger and Stirner's philosophies, through Pessoa's poetry, to Advaita Vedanta, Bhartrhari, Ibn Arabi, Suhrawardi and Mulla Sadra's theosophies – Magic is presented as an alternative system of reality to Technic. While Technic attempts to capture the world through an 'absolute language', Magic centres its reconstruction of the world around the notion of the 'ineffable' that lies at the heart of existence. Technic and Magic is an original philosophical work, and a timely cultural intervention. It disturbs our understanding of the structure of reality, while restoring it in a new form. This is possibly the most radical act: if we wish to change our world, first we have to change the idea of 'reality' that defines it.

Our secular society seems to have finally found its new God: Work. As technological progress makes human labor superfluous, and over-production destroys both the economy and the planet, Work remains stronger than ever as a mantra of universal submission. This book develops a fully-fledged theory of radical atheism, advocating a disrespectful, opportunist squandering of obedience. By replacing hope and faith with adventure, The Last Night of our lives might finally become the first morning of an autonomous future.

Description :


Leading artists, theorists, and writers exhume the dystopian and utopian futures contained within the present “I am the supercommunity, and you are only starting to recognize me. I grew out of something that used to be humanity. Some have compared me to angry crowds in public squares; others compare me to wind and atmosphere, or to software.” Invited to exhibit at the 56th Venice Biennale, e-flux journal produced a single issue over a four-month span, publishing an article a day both online and on site from Venice. In essays, poems, short stories, and plays, artists and theorists trace the negative collective that is the subject of contemporary life, in which art, the internet, and globalization have shed their utopian guises but persist as naked power, in the face of apocalyptic ecological disaster and against the claims of the social commons. “I convert care to cruelty, and cruelty back to care. I convert political desires to economic flows and data, and then I convert them back again. I convert revolutions to revelations. I don’t want security, I want to leave, and then disperse myself everywhere and all the time.”

Gerhard Richter is one of the most famous painters of our time. Worldwide. His fascinating visual spheres are characterized by a unique originality and quality, in which the abstract and the figural intertwine and permeate each other. This extensive volume of pictures concentrates entirely upon the theme of landscape in Richter?s oeuvre. Through this genre, to which Richter has remained loyal for more than sixty years, it is possible to see more than a development in the artist?s painting style. There is also a perceptible, genuine independence in many of the works, which makes him one of the most remarkable artists of our day. This book adds to the understanding of the significance and pictorial essence of Richter?s art, opening up current insights into the theme of nature and landscape in the twenty-first century.00Exhibition: Bank Austria Kunstforum Wien, Austria (01.10.2020 - 24.01.2021) / Kunsthaus Zürich, Switzerland (05.03.-18.07.2021).

Back in print, the most authoritative overview on the beloved Bauhaus Renaissance man and pioneer of abstraction, the first artist to "take a line for a walk" The many books on Paul Klee (1879-1940) published over the years should not obscure the fact that there has been no new, comprehensive Klee overview since Will Grohmann's oft-reprinted 1954 monograph. With Paul Klee: Life and Work, the Zentrum Paul Klee has set out to fill this gap, drawing on a wealth of new resources including the Klee family's archives, much of which is published here for the first time. Life and work are truly integrated in this massive, 344-page volume: Klee's vast body of work is surveyed chronologically, as the book narrates his life alongside the abundant reproductions of drawings, paintings, watercolors, sculptures, puppets and numerous archival documents and photographs (500 reproductions in total, half of which are color). The book divides Klee's career into eight periods: "Childhood and Youth"; "Munich and the Encounter with the Avant Garde"; "World War I and the Breakthrough to Success"; "At the Bauhaus in Weimar"; "Master of Modern Art"; "The Move to Dusseldorf and the Nazi Rise to Power"; "First Years of Emigration in Bern"; and "Final Years." The result of many years of research and labor, this magisterial publication demonstrates conclusively why Klee numbers among the most influential and best loved artists of the past 100 years.

Luscious reproductions of more than 50 of Twombly's paintings, drawings and little-known sculptures, along with classical works of art, tell the story of an American abstractionist's poetical dialogue with antiquity Cy Twombly's first visit to Italy as a young man ignited a lifelong passion for classical culture that is everywhere present in his art. Painted canvases, works on paper and small-scale sculptures reveal the historical soul of Twombly's abstract compositions. Taking on myths and heroes as personal guides, he created a psychologically complex dialogue with the visual and literary art of antiquity. This sumptuously illustrated publication reproduces a carefully chosen selection of the artist's paintings, drawings and sculptures alongside works of classical antiquity, including a number from his personal collection. Illuminating essays by leading scholars and writers, including Anne Carson, Jennifer R. Gross, Brooke Holmes and Mary Jacobus, explore the often enigmatic engagement of Twombly's art with the world of the past. Cy Twombly(1928-2011) was born in Lexington, Virginia, and lived and worked in New York in the early 1950s and at Black Mountain College in North Carolina. After traveling around North Africa, Spain and Italy, he settled in Rome, where he remained for the rest of his life.

Description :


The exhibition 'Changing Difference' and the accompanying publication aim to explore the work of three New-York based artists, image-makers and underground cultural agents: Peter Hujar (1934-1987), Mark Morrisroe (1959-1989) and Jack Smith (1932-1989) all occupying that uncertain territory lying between the visibility and the assimilation of 'difference'. Their works follow a complex parable, from the '60s right up to the end of the '80s, underlining the risks inherent in mixing art and life, as well as formal research and political struggles. Their research will accompany the spectator along an itinerary ranging from highbrow to lowbrow art, from the banal to the elegiac, from the trashy to the refined, and from life to death, moving through both the various genders (male, female and transgender) and sexual orientations (heterosexuality, homosexuality and bisexuality), showing how they have been recounted through both underground and mainstream culture. 0Exhibition: Galleria Civica, Modena, Italy (20.10.2012-27.1.2013).

Full-page reproductions of paintings spanning Monet's career and styles, from one of the largest Monet collections outside France The Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, boasts one of the largest collections of the celebrated impressionist artist Claude Monet's work outside France. This book reproduces all 35 oil paintings by Monet in the MFA's permanent collection, representing nearly the full span of Monet's long career. An introductory essay presents a brief introduction to his acclaim in Boston during his lifetime, and entries for the thirty-five paintings provide an overview of his life and work. Early plein-air compositions from the 1870s, as well as Grand Canal, Venice (1908), a later example inspired by his travels abroad, mark his enduring fascination with watery surfaces, utilizing vivid color and varied brushwork to dazzling effect. A grouping of works related to his life-long appreciation for Japanese art and culture is anchored by La Japonaise (Camille Monet in Japanese Costume) (1876), a full-length portrayal of his wife Camille in a lavishly embroidered kimono. His 1875 composition, Meadow with Poplars, inspires another section, as its depiction of poppies, poplar trees and grainstacks foreshadows the recurrence of these themes in his painting throughout the decades to follow. Claude Monet (1840-1926) trained with the plein-air painter Eugène Boudin among others, continuing his studies from 1859 onward in Paris, where he met Pissarro, Bazille, Sisley and Renoir. At their first exhibition in Paris in 1874, Monet's painting Impression, soleil levant prompted critics to mockingly describe him as an impressionist.
