Boxhorn #24 LEICHT ENTFLAMMBAR

Unter dem Titel »LEICHT ENTFLAMMBAR – Funke kann überspringen« präsentiert sich die 24. Ausgabe der Boxhorn aus dem Fachbereich Gestaltung, FH Aachen.
Folgende Denkanstöße standen dabei im Raum:

Du brennst für eine Idee?
Schonmal durchgebrannt?
Immer abgebrannt?
Ausgebrannt, Burn-out?
Was passiert eigentlich wenn das Feuer ausgeht?
Wie hält man die Flamme am Brennen?
Was ist das Geheimnis der Profis?
Du hast Dir die Finger verbrannt?
Fehler gemacht? Was ist daraus geworden? Ist aus dieser verbrannten Erde etwas neues gewachsen?

Themen wie »Zeitplanung«, »Überforderungen«, »psychischer wie auch physischer Stress« bis hin zum »Burn-out« sind derzeit medial allgegenwärtig.
Die 24. Ausgabe der Boxhorn behandelt diese Thematik mit Augenmerk auf den kreativen Schaffensprozess.
Eine Burn-out Betroffene schildert ihre Erfahrungen mit der Krankheit und es werden unterschiedliche Modelle zur Zeitplanung vorgestellt.
Die Erfinderinnen des Boxhorn-Magazins berichten im Interview, wie es war die Nullnummer tatsächlich zu realisieren und geben Einblick in ihren beruflichen Werdegang. Darüber hinaus finden sich in der aktuellen Ausgabe freie Fotografien, Illustrationen und Texte.
Den Leser erwarten spannende Beiträge aus dem Fachbereich, sowie von nationalen und internationalen Designern und Künstlern.

SPECULATIVE REALISM! Collapse VII: Culinary Materialism (Urbanomic)

Editors: Reza Negarestani and Robin Mackay
Paperback 115x175mm, 631pp. Limited edition of 1000 numbered copies

Collapse VII: Culinary Materialism brings together work that explores, from many different perspectives, the multifaceted question of cookery. In this volume, a range of contributors - scientists, philosophers, chefs, anthropologists, artists - explore how philosophy and proto- scientific theory and experimental practice was linked at its outset to the culinary arts; and chart the consequences of the contemporary return of cookery to scientific precision, in the rarefied world of haute cuisine as in the world of mass- manufactured confections. Along the way we discover that the question of cookery is bound up with some profound and enduring issues in the history of philosophy, and can also suggest new approaches to contemporary philosophical problems.

2 New Books by Publication Studio

1. The Buddhist by Dodie Bellamy

While ending an affair with a Buddhist teacher, Dodie Bellamy wrote about it simultaneously on her blog. This experiment in writing in extremis explores nuances of public shame, the vagaries of desire and rage, and Bellamy's confusion over the authenticity of group and individual spirituality. What is personal, what is public? In the electronic age, can anybody tell the difference?

the buddhist celebrates marginalized subjectivity as enacted in the work of female artists from Bessie Smith to Eva Hesse and Carolee Schneeman, to Bhanu Kapil and Ariana Reines. The Allone Co. Edition contains the essence of the blog, as well as more extended narratives too explicit to post on line. Designed by Wayne Smith.
ISBN: 9781935662471
Price: 26,50 Euro

2. A History of New York by Matt Keegan

Artist Matt Keegan used Ric Burns's PBS documentary, New York, as the foundation for this dense visual history of New York City. The film was billed as a "seven-part, 14 ½ hour television event [that] explores New York City’s rich history as the premier laboratory of modern life. A sweeping narrative covering nearly 400 years and 400 square miles..." The same chronology and stories are found within Keegan's image-based iteration, but without Burns's omniscient narrator. Readers make their way though four centuries of New York City history with only themselves and their experience as guides. Printed in digital color and black-and-white.
ISBN: 9781935662396
Price: 45,00 Euro
