 Verena Mack 'Nonbinary Future'

Nonbinary Future // Verena Mack
Free gender expression: plausible option, hopeful aspiration or genuine need? In this experimental large-format publication at least, a colour-saturated, organic-looking Utopian vision is brought vividly to life. The world isn’t just made up of zeros and ones, black and white, A and B, man and woman. It is a diverse mix of different shades, of all which have equal rights. Hierarchical forms and gender dominance need to be called into question. It’s a work that celebrates the non-binary and visualises the breaking down of boundaries.

A four-piece ensemble translates radio news from the first spring of the pandemic into physical movement. They are transcripts of news reports, brief descriptions of stage settings plus commentaries and footnotes. If this dance and spoken word performance was a critical examination of current events via actual news bulletins and the body’s physical responses to them, then you could say the accompanying booklet explores the performative possibilities of the double-page spread, the two-dimensional stage as it were.

Aleksandar Žišković 'Was bleibt vom Opelaner ohne Opel-Werk?'

Was bleibt vom Opelaner ohne Opel-Werk? // Aleksandar Žišković
“The abiding impression is of a global corporation beating a surreptitious retreat.” GM’s axeing of its Opel plants in Bochum was a long and drawn-out saga, dragging on for several years before they were shut down completely in 2014, by which time demolition had already begun. This book sets out to explore the frame of mind of those who, after decades of loyal service, were left feeling disillusioned with their employer. A particularly key section is the interviews with former employees. Headed “Gartengespräche” (“Garden Conversations”) and accompanied by photographic portraits
