Texte zur Kunst No. 97

Exile and marginality, network availability, mass- versus subcultural identities, privilege, opting (versus dropping) out – these are elements this issue takes on. The fading of bohemia’s appeal is no doubt linked in part to a growing preference for the web’s promise of total-connectivity. Though could another factor be at work here too: an underlying sense that perhaps the real displacement and disenfranchisement after which romantic notions of “bohemia” were later formed may again be a very real threat?

TEXT-Revue, Heft Nr. 12, "Characters"

“Characters“, die 12. Ausgabe der Zeitschrift TEXT, dekliniert den Modellbegriff, ausgehend vom Buchstaben – dem Wortbild, der typographischen Gestalt, der Arbeit an Begriffen – über das Genre des Porträts zu utopisch-existentiellen Entwürfen.

Das Heft versammelt Beiträge aus der Op-Art (Bridget Riley und Peter Sedgley), der klassischen Konzeptkunst (Hanne Darboven) sowie der zeitgenössischen, am feministischen Rollenspiel orientierten Performance (Geneviève White); zudem programmatische Statements zum Design (Werner Aisslinger) und eine Hommage an einen Virtuosen des Nonkonformismus: Sun Ra.

Herausgegeben von Andreas van Dühren

This issue enacts the term "model" in a variety of applications: the mere letter, the idea of literality, typography and terminology – shifting to portrait, shapes of the human to come, design and utopian ways of living. It gives examples of Op-Art (Bridget Riley and Peter Sedgley), classical conceptualism (Hanne Darboven) as well as an updated understanding of performance (Geneviève White) and mind game installations (Paulo Bottarelli) ; finally there is a tribute to Sun Ra, the master of nonconformism.
