“The actual distribution of the centers of wheat and rice production in the world can be seen to coincide fairly accurately with the areas of adequate rainfall. A temperate climate and rainfall adequate to the production of either wheat or rice provide the agricultural basis for the power of any state. A region which lacks these elements in any appreciable degree finds itself doomed to play a secondary role in the power relations of the world.”

— Spykman, Nicholas John. The Geography of the Peace. New York: Harcourt, Brace and Company, 1944.

Angharad Williams
Published by After 8 Books, Paris & Kunstverein für die Rheinlande und Westfalen, Düsseldorf, 2023, 80 pages (b/w ill.), 11 × 18 cm, English
Price: €10

Angharad Williams’ book Eraser, concludes a two-year process of writing and has existed in the form of an exhibition, a performance, and now a book. Eraser is as much about the categorical boundaries of our consensual reality—between self and other, human and non-human, waking and dreaming consciousness—as it is about an urge to overcome them. The book’s main protagonist undergoes multiple transformations via psychic and physical transferences with elementary forces—involving a trout and a magpie, among other things—that unsettle the idea of the “stable” self. Eraser proposes a perspective in which the categorical distinctions between individual self, others, and non-human life slowly begin to dissolve. Other worlds of consciousness—of animals, plants, and organic matter—here embody a form of social organization free from the hierarchies of tradition and liberal progress.

Designed by Dan Solbach.

Christopher D'Arcangelo
Published by Kunstverein, Amsterdam & Artists Space, New York, 2023, 232 pages (colour & b/w ill.), 21.7 × 28 cm, English
Price: €30

Despite having been active for only four years before passing away at the young age of twenty-four, Christopher D’Arcangelo (1955–1979) is a key, though lesser known, figure of 1970s Institutional Critique in New York City. Even generations later, D’Arcangelo’s singular approach remains wholly unique in its radicality and generosity. This first estate-approved monograph illuminates his momentous practice after many decades of limited access to the materials surrounding it.

The publication also includes new contributions from figures who have punctuated D’Arcangelo’s practice—such as Peter Nadin, Daniel Buren, Louise Lawler and Janelle Reiring—as well as photographic contributions by artist Heji Shin. Edited by Yana Foqué and Isabelle Sully. Designed by Marc Hollenstein.
