Alternative Iran : Contemporary Art and Critical Spatial Practice / by Pamela Karimi. - Stanford (CA) : Stanford University, 2022. - 445 p. : ill. ; 25,5 cm
Includes notes, bibliography, index
ISBN: 9781503631809
Alternative Iran offers a unique contribution to the field of contemporary art, investigating how Iranian artists engage with space and site amid the pressures of the art market and the state's regulatory regimes. Since the 1980s, political, economic, and intellectual forces have driven Iran's creative class toward increasingly alternative forms of artmaking not meant for official venues. Instead, these art forms appear in private homes with "trusted" audiences, derelict buildings, leftover urban zones, and remote natural sites. While many of these venues operate independently, others are sanctioned by the state. Drawing on interviews with over a hundred artists, gallerists, theater experts, musicians, and designers, Pamela Karimi throws into sharp relief the extraordinary art and performance activities that have received little attention outside Iran. Attending to nonconforming curatorial projects, independent guerrilla installations, escapist practices, and tacitly subversive performances, Karimi discloses the push-and-pull between the art community and the authorities, and discusses myriad instances of tentative coalition as opposed to outright partnership or uncompromising resistance.

Potential History : Unlearning Imperialism / by Ariella Aïsha Azoulay. - London ; New York : Verso, 2019. - 656 p. : ill. ; 23 cm  
Includes notes, bibliography, visual sources, index
ISBN: 9781788735711
The renowned scholar political theory and photography Ariella Aïsha Azoulay, argues that the institutions that make our world, from archives and museums to ideas of sovereignty and human rights to history itself, are all dependent on imperial modes of thinking. Imperialism has segmented populations into differentially governed groups, continually emphasized the possibility of progress while it tries to destroy what came before, and voraciously seeks out the new by sealing the past away in dusty archival boxes and the glass vitrines of museums. By practicing what she calls potential history, Azoulay argues that we can still refuse the original imperial violence that shattered communities, lives, and worlds, from native peoples in the Americas at the moment of conquest to the Congo ruled by Belgium's brutal King Léopold II, from dispossessed Palestinians in 1948 to displaced refugees in our own day.

Includes notes, essay and illustration credits
ISBN: 978-0-692-04225-0
A collection of essays by Slovenian curator, museum director, and scholar Zdenka Badovinac, who  has been an influential voice in international conversations rethinking the geopolitics of art after the fall of communism, a ferocious critic of unequal negotiations between East and West, and a historian of the avant-garde art that emerged in socialist and post-socialist countries in the last century. Badovinac has been, moreover, an advocate for radical institutional forms: museums responsive to the complexities of the past and commensurate to the demands of the present. Gathering writings from disparate and hard-to-find sources alongside new texts, this book offers a  portrait of a major thinker, and an interesting handbook of alternative approaches to curating and institution-building in the 21st century.

Continually questioning given forms of identity, Gupta offers artists and curators multiple strategies of resistance, carving out space for new ways of imagining what it might mean to live, love, and create.

ISBN: 9781736534625
The trailblazing Asian artist collective known as Godzilla, Asian American Art Network was formed in 1990 to support the production of critical discourse around Asian American art and increase the visibility of Asian American artists, curators, and writers, who were negotiating a historically exclusionary society and art world. Founded by Ken Chu, Bing Lee, and Margo Machida, Godzilla produced exhibitions, publications, and community collaborations that sought to stimulate social change through art and advocacy, confronting  institutional racism, Western imperialism, anti-Asian violence, the AIDS crisis, and representations of Asian sexuality and gender, among other urgent issues. For more than a decade, having grown from a local organization into a nationwide network, created an important social space for diasporic Asian artists and art professionals.
This publication offers a comprehensive anthology of writings, art projects, publications, correspondence, organizational documents, and other archival ephemera from this collective.

Take 'Em Down : Scattered Monuments and Queer Forgetting / by Simon(e) van Saarloos ; forew. by Pamela Sneed. - Guelph (CAN) : Publication Studio ; Musagetes, 2022. - 120 p. ; 24 cm
Includes notes, bibliography
ISBN: 9781989157152
Who determines what is remembered and commemorated, and why? How can we commemorate something that is both in the past and a daily reality? In ‘Take 'Em Down', Simon(e) van Saarloos is inspired by the historically almost invisible (made) existence of LGBT people and queers. They demonstrate the power of forgetting and wonder if and how it's possible to live without a past. At the same time, Van Saarloos criticizes the way that a ‘white memory'—including their own—treats some stories as self-evident while other histories are erased. Take 'Em Down was part of a project titled ‘the spread of a mo(nu)ment' in partnership with TAAK, Amsterdam. (also published in Dutch and available in this library under the title: ‘Herdenken Herdacht : een essay om te vergeten')

Women Looking at Women Looking at Women : Reclaiming Histories of Women in the Arts and Proposing Models to Facilitate Future Friendships / by Annemarie Wadlow ; design by Marijn van der Leeuw, Esther Vane, India Scrimgeour, Hannah Williams and Annemarie Wadlow. - The Hague : Page Not Found, 2022. -123 [34] p. : ill. ; 19 cm
ISBN: 978-90-832224-1-7
In what ways have women artists come together to investigate their own image? This publication delves into histories of feminist and queer collective practice, expanding on the various ways women claim agency of their identity, via collaborations that connect intergenerational and far-away friendships. In 2020 Wadlow won the first Page Not Found Thesis Award, celebrating this her thesis as a KABK graduate, which integrates most strongly its own dissemination. Each chapter features artistic and theoretical case studies that discuss images produced by women artists, about women artists; proposing that to gaze upon someone represented with care and autonomy provides more affirmative ways to relate to ourselves. According to the publisher: "Only by engaging in both roles can we unveil what is not taught in the mainstream and inspire a more inclusive, generous future.
Each aspect of the book's design is a collaborative endeavour, expanding the notion of individual authorship. It is with this sentiment that creating the publication became research in itself, via collaboration with both direct peers and an extended genealogy.

Sick Building Syndrome and the Problem of Uncertainty : Environmental Politics, Technoscience, and Women Workers / by Michelle Murphy. - Durham ; London : Duke University, 2006. - 264 p. : ill. ; 23 cm
Includes notes, bibliography, index
ISBN: 978-0-8223-3671-6
Before 1980, ‘sick building syndrome' did not exist, but the 1990s, it was among the most commonly investigated occupational health problems in the United States. Afflicted by headaches, rashes, and immune system disorders, office workers - mostly women - protested that their workplaces were filled with toxic hazards; yet federal investigators could detect no chemical cause. ‘Sick building syndrome' embodied a politics of uncertainty that continues to characterize contemporary American environmental debates. Murphy explores the production of uncertainty by juxtaposing multiple histories, each of which explains how an expert or lay tradition made chemical exposures perceptible or imperceptible, existent or nonexistent. She shows how uncertainty emerged from a complex confluence of feminist activism, office worker protests, ventilation engineering, toxicology, popular epidemiology, corporate science, and ecology. Murphy brings all of these histories together in what is a thorough account of an environmental health problem and am even deeper exploration of the relationship between history, materiality, and uncertainty.

"Simply put, feminism is a movement to end sexism, sexist exploitation, and oppression." So begins ‘Feminism is for Everybody', the accessible introduction to feminist theory by one of its most influential practitioners who passed away in December 2021. Designed to be read by all genders, hooks provides a primer to the question 'what is feminism?' but also gives an argument for the enduring importance of the feminist movement. Beginning with a broad survey of feminism's most important themes and concerns, hooks demystifies contentious concepts and turns apparent ideology into common sense. Providing a critical evaluation of the successes and failures of contemporary feminism, she looks at a wide variety of topics including reproductive rights, sexual violence, race, class and work. hooks encourages her readers to demand alternatives to patriarchal, racist and homophobic culture and thereby to seek out a different future.

solidarity, community and belonging that are disconnected from or even antagonistic to this form of governance and in which a migrant or otherwise marginalized position can be seen as one of power and resistance. ‘States of Statelessness' delves into the diverse manners in which people respond to their precarious relations to nation and nationality in practical, poetic and community-based ways.

Includes list of maps and figures, notes, bibliography, index
ISBN: 9780141991061
For generations, our remote ancestors have been cast as primitive and childlike - either free and equal, or thuggish and warlike. Civilization, was assumed, could only be achieved by sacrificing those original freedoms or, alternatively, by taming our baser instincts. David Graeber and David Wengrow describe how such theories first emerged in the eighteenth century as a reaction to indigenous critiques of European society, and why they think they are wrong. In doing so, they try to overturn our view of human history, including the origins of farming, democracy, slavery and civilization itself.

ISBN 978-94-93246-02-7
Creating a fair and vital social fabric inspired by mutual dependencies between living beings and all entities including fauna, flora, air, land and water, is fundamental for our collective existence. This reader is meant as a critical toolbox with intersectional perspectives to examine and reveal meaningful and inspiring narratives that can guide our future. The publication considers the agency that artists, collectives and art institutions have generated from the 1970s to today to build the radical imaginaries of care and solidarity, needed to transform the conditions of our collective existence in the face of local and global crises. Presenting new and historical material, it tells a series of stories of solidarity across geographies in relation to emergencies connected to ecocide, femicide, genocide, migration, neocolonialism, inter-religious conflicts, class divisions and heteronormativity, amongst others.

Bevat literatuurlijst
ISBN: 9789077794296
Publicatie waarin de artistieke ontwikkeling van de Haagse kunstenaar Bob Bonies wordt gespiegeld aan de ontwikkelingen in de beeldende kunst, en waarin zijn betekenis wordt geduid. Bonies is  bekend om zijn concrete kunst, een vorm waarvoor hij altijd een fel voorstander is geweest; hij heeft zich nooit iets van modes aangetrokken. Zo is een persoonlijk, sterk en consistent oeuvre ontstaan.
Bonies heeft zich ook altijd zeer maatschappelijk en politiek opgesteld. Ook voor het beeldende kunstbeleid is hij vanaf midden jaren zestig van bijzondere betekenis geweest. Zijn inbreng - onder meer als directeur van de Vrije Academie, was bepaald niet onomstreden.

ISBN: 1994034116
Catalogue accompanying the revolutionary exhibition ‘This is the show and the show is many things' curated by Bart de Baere at S.M.A.K., Ghent (Sep. 17 1994 - Nov. 27 1994), which one review described as "a fun palace, a rumpus room, a discount warehouse, a museum without walls, a wasteland and a Wunder-Kabinett of the marvellous and the inconsequential." Thirteen participating artists - Louise Bourgeois, Honoré d'O, Fabrice Hybert, Mark Manders, Jason Rhoades, Anne Decock, Suchan Kinoshita, Uri Tzaig, Henrietta Lehtonen (redesigned the museum café's mugs), Eran Schaerf (set up a work station in the space), Mark Manders and Maria Roosen - contributed physical works, ephemeral interventions, and installations, the presentation of which morphed and shifted throughout the duration of the exhibition. This show about process, collaboration, chance encounter, and whimsy was an exceptional example of a particularly intelligent and risky strain of experimentation exploring the limits of how the viewer - and artists themselves - might interact within an exhibition space.

What is ‘labour of love'? What drives us to accept jobs that forgo adequate monetary compensation for the work we do, only to be ‘paid' in exposure, experience, or emotional fulfilment? This issue focuses on labour and labourers of love; those whose jobs require the practice of care and compassion, those working fields that demand employing a repertoire of feelings, as well as those whose passion is also their job.
