Discipline 2 + Institute Zagreb 1986 / The Air of Conquerors – DUAL PUBLICATION LAUNCH
w/ music performance by LAKES (Australia)
Discipline 2 ↓
176 p. for € 20
The second edition of Australian art magazine Discipline has been guest edited by London-based writer Maria Fusco. Maria is editor of The Happy Hypocrite, author of The Mechanical Copula (Sternberg Press, 2010) and Director of Art Writing at Goldsmiths, UK.
Discipline is completely independent: 176 pp, full colour, ad-free and designed by Amsterdam-based designers Annie Wu and Ziga Testen.
Institute Zagreb 1986 / The Air of Conquerors ↓
208 p. for €15
Two new novella-length works of fiction by the Melbourne-based writer S.T. Lore that are presented in a flip novel designed by the Amsterdam-based artist and designer, Annie Wu.
The stories pivot around characters immersed in scenes of claustrophobia, obsessive archiving, impossible architectures, image-saturation and delusion.
Institute Zagreb 1986 intertwines two narratives about a religion conceived by a pair of demographic analysts on the rooftop of an abandoned building, and a rock-collecting character named The Saxon. The narrative is collated through a process of uncovering archived audio recordings retained by an 'explosion proof' telephone. Institute Zagreb 1986 is interspersed with a series of graphic elements created for the publication by Joshua Petherick.
The Air of Conquerors is a piece of surreal detective fiction set against a backdrop of the South Australian Desert scattered with ruined Parisian monuments. It chronicles two investigators' search for a lonely telephone operator who has disappeared into a subterranean hotel. The narrative was written in reference to a series of photographs that were taken by Nicholas Mangan in Paris in November 2011 and sent to the author as part of a project exploring the fictionalisation of images – both historical and the everyday.
Published in Australia and Designed by Ziga Testen & Annie Wu both based in Amsterdam.

HALLO GALLO – pre-SOTU night
DIAMOND CATALOG (US)
Diamond Catalog is the duo of Lala Conchita and Pat Maherr out of Portland, Oregon. Their music is a concoction of cross-bred dance music and mutated, swirling noise bricolage. Factory-booming beats creating a mechanical-yet-organic framework for devious sonic chatter to wind its way through. Imagine the sound of a distant rave in the midst of a disorienting drug spell, wading your way through the infinity of your mind's own dark matter.
Rhode Island print & noise artist Lauren Pakradooni performs solo as PAK, where she manipulates scratchy four track tapes & contact-mic'ed machines into a loopy bliss - sometimes like salt on a margarita glass, sometimes like grit in a canvas shoe. She likes hair, crooked things, zombies and oil slick. There's some pretty incredible posters she's made out there, plus her sonic output is grippable from the indomitable Breaking World Records.

Walking along, but more importantly, looking down while walking along. The ground that you see when you are on your way --- home (from a night out), or the other way – to work perhaps? You might be interested in letters, the things that usually [seem to] go back on themselves. You are always looking for things that remind you of them, things that change your conception of them – things that will lead to new designs, new formal solutions, or simply comforts making you feel less bad about yourself. Sometimes these things are best found by chance, or better, by detritus. Detritus with limits. These things you might want to collect, carry around with you; in your phone's memory.
'Hey Now!', assembled by Jens Schildt and designed together with David Bennewith, is the second booklet in a series of publications dedicated to the typographical 'And'. Published by Silver Fern Press/Colophon.

Julio Reyes Montesinos
– five performance-lectures
In 1979 Bettina Köster and Gudrun Gut opened the Eisengrau store in Berlin, a meeting point for the local underground and venue for exhibitions, concerts, super 8 films, machine knitted sweaters and a cassette label of the same name, which released recordings of "genius dilettante" groups Einstürzende Neubauten, Die Tödliche Doris, Frieder Butzmann and Köster and Gut's own band Mania D (with Beate Bartel of Liaisons Dangereuses). All these groups were at the time pushing the definition of music to its limits, creating new forms and unheard sounds within a self-organized network. Mania D later became Malaria!, who's song "Kaltes Klares Wasser" got covered by Chicks On Speed. In recent years Bettina has played with New York's The Vanishing and Autonervous. In 2009 she released her first solo album "Queen Of Noise". Don't miss this very special performance!
Mittland och Leo
Mittland och Leo is a duo consisting of Antwerpian Joke Leonare and Milan Warmoeskerken. They create instrumental songs with melancholic organ and Casio sounds, echoes and a rhythm box. The music sits seemingly simple in another, perhaps the reason why this psychedelic organ exotica sounds so refreshing. Their debut 7” has been released on Ultra Eczema.

BERLIN SUPER 80 - Music & Film from West Berlin 1978 - 1984 (presented by Jeffrey Babcock)
– Once upon a time Berlin was a furnace of intense creativity. A no-man's land stuck in the middle of East Germany, it was an island where anyone who wanted to escape the West German military draft or who wanted easy welfare money could go. This formed a subculture of riffraff, anarchists, drug abusers, squatters, political activists and subversive artists that became the creative drive behind the city. There was no place even remotely like it. A far cry from the stylized ghost of such a movement that Berlin is today. Much like Amsterdam, it is another city that is living off its past reputation.
BERLIN SUPER 80 is a documentation of the early 80s Berlin subculture, featuring works from the cityís vibrant underground cinema scene which embraced the home movie format of Super 8 as a viable low-budget outlet for their creative expression. Ranging from punk to the ingenious dilettantes, this is a retrospective of audio-visual Berlin featuring ìDie tˆdliche Dorisî, ìEinst¸rzende Neubautenî, ìMalariaî amongst many others.
The super-8 playlist:
01. Brand & Maschmann: E Dopo (1981)
02. Christoph Doering: 3302- Taxi Film (1979)

Blue (Derek Jarman) + lecture by Dimitris Mylonas (colour researcher, UCL, London)
– In his last film, Blue, Derek Jarman inspired by the monochromatic work of Yves Klein and his own personal experience of cyanopsia (also referred to as blue vision), produces an infinity of visual representations using a single shot of cobalt blue and a collage of sounds and poetic narration, uniquely constructed in each viewerís brain. We will ëstep into a blue funkí to make a conjecture about how Jarman saw colours through this transient visual effect. From this purely subjective experience, we can understand a bit more about colour vision and how the brain acquires knowledge about the world we live in. I will then introduce a web-based study, in which we ask participants to name, in their language, what colour they see, with the aim of developing a novel colour-naming application that facilitates colour communication across cultures.

13 Screen tests (presented by Jeffrey Babcock)
– Between 1964 and 1966, Andy Warhol shot nearly 500 screen tests, beautiful and revealing portraits of hundreds of different individuals, from the famous to the anonymous, he recorded all of the visitors to The Factory. Subjects were captured in stark chiaroscuro by a strong spotlight, and filmed by Warhol with his stationary 16mm Bolex camera on silent, black and white, 100-foot rolls of film. The resulting two-and-a-half-minute film reels were then projected in slow motion, resulting in a riveting collection of four-minute "portraits". Here are 13 of the 'screen tests'; presented in a crisp black and white photography. The subjects included are Paul America, Susan Bottomly, Ann Buchanan,Nico, Jane Hozler, Lou Reed, Billy Name, Edie Sedgwick, Richard Rheem, Dennis Hopper, Ingid Superstar and Mary Woronov. The Screen Tests are presented with newly commissioned soundtracks by Dean Wareham and Britta Phillips (formerly of the band Luna).
