Wir Ungestalten
Peter Fischli
Published by Verlag der Buchhandlung Walther König, Köln, 2022, 52 pages (colour & b/w ill.), 24.7 × 26.8 cm, German
Price: €18

This publication is released in conjunction with Peter Fischli’s exhibition 12 Arbeiten ohne Titel at Galerie Buchholz Cologne. It presents collages based on photographs taken throughout Zurich. For the past three years, the artist has documented peculiar “remnants of nocturnal revelry”: cars, park benches, and building façades sprayed with shaving foam—easily removable vandalistic interventions into the urban fabric, gestures of infinitesimal subversion. The foam figments are formless, lacking both definite shape and durable substance.

*Please note this publication is secondhand and has some traces of previous ownership.

Gay Betrayals
Hannah Quinlan and Rosie Hastings
Published by Afterall Books, London, 2022, 102 pages (colour & b/w ill.), 15 × 21 cm, English
Price: €13

In 1997, during a symposium at Centre Pompidou, Leo Bersani presented a prescient critique of the assimilative tendencies that made ‘gays melt into the very culture they like to think of themselves as undermining.’ Mired in micropolitics, for Bersani, queer activism had relinquished the radical task of reconfiguring the horizon of the possible. Later published as ‘Gay Betrayals’, Bersani’s intervention champions a truly disruptive vision of homosexuality, one that betrays the relational, identitarian and communitarian foundations of bourgeois heterosexual respectability through ‘antimonogamous promiscuity’. Building on extensive artistic research into the politics of queer spaces and culture some 20 years later, artist duo Hannah Quinlan and Rosie Hastings revisit Bersani’s polemic with a response in three acts. Through a kaleidoscopic array of drawings, preparatory sketches and egg tempera paintings, a narrative of everyday (homo)sociality comes into view. A series of statuesque figures are caught as they feel the outlines of existing power structures, try out new strategies of inclusivity and, ultimately, wrestle with the blurred lineaments of identity and community.
