Nochmal Morgen: "Ich kann so nicht arbeiten."

23. Februar 2007 / Eingestellt von thw um 12:00 /

Das ist ein nachvollziebarer Titel, denn wir wohl alle mal geäussert haben. Bei der kommenden Veranstaltung im unitednationsplaza ist das genau der Titel, auf englisch, der Veranstaltung, die gleichzeitig die Veröffentlichung eines Heftes aus der Serie 'Printed Project' vorsieht. Das Heft, diesmal herausgegeben von Anton Vidokle und Tirdad Zolghadr, fasst fast alle Beiträge, die bis dato im unitednationsplaza gehalten wurden, im Heftform zusammen. Es lohnt sich also wirklich, das Heft, das Kommen, das Kaufen, das Reden, in welcher Reihenfolge auch immer.

Das Cover wurde gestaltet von Natascha Sadr Haghighian und ist einfach Klasse.

24 February at the unitednationsplaza, Platz der Vereinten Nationen 14a, 8–10 pm.

“The decision to invite Anton Vidokle to edit of Issue 6 of Printed Project arose out of events that took place in June 2006, when the city of Nicosia cancelled Manifesta 6 and terminated the curators' contracts, a move that is virtually unheard of on this level. In July, during a heat wave in Dublin, in the casual banter that precedes this type of meeting, Printed Project's editorial panel shared our disbelief, relaying to one another various sources of speculation. The idea arose to use the next issue of Printed Project to document this controversy, in hopes that this would allow some public entry into the decision. However, this approach would contradict our editorial mission: to support guest editors through an open platform in the form of a printed publication with no prescribed theme. We decided that an appropriate response to Manifesta's cancellation would be to invite one of the curators to do anything they wanted. In effect, to offer a platform where one had been stripped away.

Anton invited Tirdad Zolghadr to co-edit the issue. It is important to mention that many of the contributions here are based on the opening conference called ‘Histories of Productive Failures: From French Revolution to Manifesta 6’, which took place at the unitednationsplaza, Berlin in October of 2006.”
