Please join us for the unpacking of two new publications by German-born, Paris-based Bauer Verlag. Lines and stories that might and might not cross, intermingle, and tie a knot...
No. 1: Resisting Exactitude by Yara Feghali, Iulia Nistor
"If it is somehow identifiable as part of a referential system, we immediately understand the meaning of a line on a piece of paper. A horizontal line will be easily read as a minus, an em dash or a way on a map, no matter how sloppily it is written or drawn."
'Resisting Exactitude', a short text by Yara Feghali and Iulia Nistor, leads the reader through cases where the line, transferred from the abstract to the physical, turns out to be different than intended, and can be both problematic or productive. Chapters include 'City, plot, land demarcation', 'Room, wall, corner', 'Paper, hand, drawing' and 'Mind, thinking, definition'.
No. 2: About Jane Dickson and Maximilian Klawitter by Maximilian Klawitter
"In a house you wanted to intrude, searching for a narrative you've detected between a character, images and photographs. I remember bumping against a floor lamp, causing its glow to waver briefly. Trying to ascertain the transmissions while already standing in front of objects that demand to be looked at."
'At the window', 'out there on the street', 'here in the room' are three perspectives from which two protagonists are portrayed on a stage in the format of one publication. Illuminated by the screen of its own projection, 'About Jane Dickson and Maximilian Klawitter', in 18 chapters, comprises image based as well as textual documentation of an encounter.
