SCREENING  |  BOOK NOTES 1998-2012 video by Christoph Schifferli Zurichcurated by Rio Grande  'I started using a digital camera in the late 90s, mostly in art exhibitions were I took pictures of the artwork together with the small tags on the side stating the name of the artist, etc. I later started using the camera also for books, taking a quick picture of the cover with some spreads and the impressum (and possibly of the price if it was a rare book). Since the date is automatically registered when you take a digital picture, I still had to take note of the location (these were pre-GPS times). So I started taking pictures of the gallerist, artist or bookdealer to keep a record of the place or context. Anyway - I still do this all the time. Finally these pictures also became a visual diary - but this happened more coincidentally and as a side effect, and I became aware of the diary effect much later in the process. Anyway, the small MPG-video I sent you is just a small selection of images from the ca. 5,000 book-related notes I showed at Christophe Daviet-Thery’s gallery in Paris.' Christoph Schifferli   |  29.11/01.12  non-stop ↝ Galleria Ostrakon

SCREENING  |  SLIDE SHOWS by Charlotte Cheetham ⟨Paris⟩ — Slide Shows, a series of self-portraits, offers one possible landscape of a newly emerging scene of independent and contemporary art publishing. Curated by Charlotte Cheetham and produced by Fillip — the initiative began in 2012 in conjunction with Fillip’s Institutions by Artists conference in the fall of 2012 in Vancouver, and took the form of a series of videos hosted on Tumblr. With the sequential rhythm of the pages of a book, the slideshows depict portraits of publishers, artists, designers, booksellers, and other leading figures of contemporary independent and art publishing. Through the familiar ⟨nostalgic⟩ format of consecutive captioned images, these slideshow videos are mobilized in the service of these characters, whose images and texts speak to a still developing horizon of practice, as if they anticipate the transmission of a still moving memory, thus captured for a moment. This partially decontextualized narrative space in which information is displayed in a state of silent diffusion ⟨such as the book⟩ can be freely visited alone, on a computer, or with others as when the videos were first presented. ⟨A wink to the noxious zapping rhythm of information online, but here presented so that its stories may be savoured, its collected archive is unpacked.⟩ After a pocket guide that was printed and inserted into the Fillip #18, the project will culminate in a printed volume that will document each slideshow,available in 2014. Enjoy!  |  29.11.13  4pm6pm | 30.11.13  3pm6pm | 01.12.13  1pm3pm ↝ Teatro Verdi
