Lawrence Schwartzwald: The Art of Reading

The Art of Reading presents the first retrospective of Lawrence Schwartzwald’s candid images of readers, made between 2001 and 2017.

Partly inspired by André Kertész’s On Reading of 1971, Schwartzwald’s subjects are mostly average New Yorkers—sunbathers, a bus driver, shoeshine men, subway passengers, denizens of bookshops and cafes—but also artists, most notably Amy Winehouse at Manhattan’s now-closed all-night diner Florent.

In 2001 Schwartzwald’s affectionate photo of a New York bookseller reading at his makeshift sidewalk stand on Columbus Avenue (and inadvertently exposing his generous buttock cleavage) caused a minor sensation: first published in the New York Post, it inspired a reporter for the New York Observer to interview the “portly peddler” in a humorous column titled “Wisecracking on Columbus Avenue” of 2001.

Since then Schwartzwald has sought out his readers of books on paper—mostly solitary and often incongruous, desperate or vulnerable—who fly in the face of the closure of traditional bookshops and the surge in e-books, dedicating themselves to what Schwartzwald sees as a vanishing art: the art of reading.

Lawrence Schwartzwald: Born in New York in 1953, Lawrence Schwartzwald studied literature at New York University. He worked as a freelance photographer for the New York Post for nearly two decades and in 1997 New York Magazine dubbed him the Post’s “king of the streets.” Books and literature have shaped several of his photo series including “Reading New York” and “Famous Poets,” both self-published in 2017. Schwartzwald lives and works in Manhattan.

Ulrike Almut Sandig: Thick of It

The poems of Ulrike Almut Sandig are at once simple and fantastic.

This new collection finds her on her way to imaginary territories. Thick of It charts a journey through two hemispheres to “the center of the world” and navigates a “thicket” that is at once the world, the psyche, and language itself.

The poems explore an urgently urban reality, but that reality is interwoven with references to nightmares, the Bible, fairy tales, and nursery rhymes—all overlaid with a finely tuned longing for a disappearing world. The old names are forgotten, identities fall away; things disappear from the kitchen; everything is sliding away.

Powerful themes emerge, but always mapped onto the local, the fractured individual in “the thick of it” all. This is language at its most crafted and transformative, blisteringly contemporary, but with a kind of austerity, too.

By turns comic, ironic, skeptical, nostalgic, these poems are also profoundly musical, exploiting multiple meanings and stretching syntax, so that the audience is constantly kept guessing, surprised by the next turn in the line.

Rachel Feder: Harvester of Hearts. Motherhood under the Sign of Frankenstein

In the period between 1815 and 1820, Mary Shelley wrote her most famous novel, Frankenstein; or, The Modern Prometheus, as well as its companion piece, Mathilda, a tragic incest narrative that was confiscated by her father, William Godwin, and left unpublished until 1959. She also gave birth to four—and lost three—children.

In this hybrid text, Rachel Feder interprets Frankenstein and Mathilda within a series of provocative frameworks including Shelley’s experiences of motherhood and maternal loss, twentieth-century feminists’ interests in and attachments to Mary Shelley, and the critic’s own experiences of pregnancy, childbirth, and motherhood.

Harvester of Hearts explores how Mary Shelley’s exchanges with her children—in utero, in birth, in life, and in death—infuse her literary creations. Drawing on the archives of feminist scholarship, Feder theorizes “elective affinities,” a term she borrows from Goethe to interrogate how the personal attachments of literary critics shape our sense of literary history.

Feder blurs the distinctions between intellectual, bodily, literary, and personal history, reanimating the classical feminist discourse on Frankenstein by stepping into the frame.

The result—at once an experimental book of literary criticism, a performative foray into feminist praxis, and a deeply personal lyric essay—not only locates Mary Shelley’s monsters within the folds of maternal identity but also illuminates the connections between the literary and the quotidian.

Rachel Feder is an assistant professor of English and literary arts at the University of Denver. Her scholarly and creative work has appeared in a range of publications including ELH, Studies in Romanticism, and a poetry chapbook from dancing girl press.

Tori Telfer: Lady Killers. Deadly Women Throughout History

Author Tori Telfer’s “Lady Killers,” a thrilling and entertaining compendium, investigates female serial killers and their crimes through the ages.

When you think of serial killers throughout history, the names that come to mind are ones like Jack the Ripper, John Wayne Gacy, and Ted Bundy. But what about Tillie Klimek, Moulay Hassan, Kate Bender?

The narrative we’re comfortable with is the one where women are the victims of violent crime, not the perpetrators. In fact, serial killers are thought to be so universally, overwhelmingly male that in 1998, FBI profiler Roy Hazelwood infamously declared in a homicide conference, “There are no female serial killers.”

Lady Killers, based on the popular online series that appeared on Jezebel and The Hairpin, disputes that claim and offers fourteen gruesome examples as evidence.

Though largely forgotten by history, female serial killers such as Erzsébet Báthory, Nannie Doss, Mary Ann Cotton, and Darya Nikolayevna Saltykova rival their male counterparts in cunning, cruelty, and appetite for destruction.

Patti Smith is a singer and poet. As the ‘Godmother of Punk’, she protested against social conventions, mindless factory labour and the commercialised world with her powerful and controversial music. She grew up with the music of Bob Dylan, lived together with photographer Robert Mapplethorpe and became a familiar face in the turbulent art scene of New York City. In 1974 Smith started performing with guitarist Lenny Kaye, forming the core of The Patti Smith Group. Her debut album Horses (1975) is considered to be one of the most influential albums in the history of rock music. With Bruce Springsteen she wrote Because the Night, her biggest hit. In addition to many albums, Smith also published poetry and books, including Just Kids (2010), her award-winning autobiography on life in New York in the seventies and her relation with Mapplethorpe.

Patrick Tudoret: Fromentin. Le roman d’une vie

De La Rochelle, sa ville natale — où il revint sans cesse — à Paris, de la Côte d’Azur à la Vallée du Loir, de Venise à la Belgique et à la Hollande, de l’Algérie à l’Égypte, la vie romanesque d’un écrivain et peintre — un des plus grands orientalistes — parmi les plus admirés de son temps.

Entre 1820 et 1876, le siècle défile, riche en convulsions politiques, en bouleversements économiques et sociaux, en révolutions artistiques. C’est dans cette France en ébullition — il vécut deux révolutions, un coup d’État signant les débuts du Second Empire, les guerres coloniales, la guerre de 70, la Commune de Paris, enfin l’avènement de la IIIe République — qu’Eugène Fromentin mène son destin d’homme libre et d’homme de foi, aussi fiévreux et amoureux que sage, d’une exigence égale dans ses deux arts.

Auteur de Dominique, encensé par George Sand, Flaubert, Sainte-Beuve et bien d’autres, modèle pionnier de l’« écrivain voyageur », découvreur d’un certain Orient, il s’en fera le chantre par sa plume et son pinceau. Écrivain, son œuvre est entrée dans La Pléiade. Peintre, il est représenté dans le monde entier : au Louvre, à Orsay, La Rochelle, mais aussi Londres, New York, Boston, Philadelphie, Saint-Pétersbourg ou Doha.

C’est une figure unique de l’histoire artistique que ces pages font renaître. D’une plume brillante, quasi fraternelle pour son sujet, Patrick Tudoret brosse ici le roman d’une vie.

Comme Fromentin, Patrick Tudoret a longtemps vécu à La Rochelle où il garde de solides attaches. Il est l’auteur d’une quinzaine d’ouvrages parus notamment aux éditions de La Table Ronde (groupe Gallimard), chez Grasset ou aux Belles Lettres, et de pièces de théâtre jouées à Paris et en province.Docteur en science politique de l’université Paris I Panthéon-Sorbonne, il a aussi étudié la philosophie et l’esthétique. Ses livres lui ont valu plusieurs prix dont le Grand Prix de la Critique, en 2009. Son dernier roman, L’homme qui fuyait le Nobel, paru fin 2015 chez Grasset, a connu un vif succès, obtenanten 2016 le Prix Claude Farrère et le Prix des Grands Espaces.

Detlef Siegfried: 1968. Protest, Revolte, Gegenkultur

Hinter der Zeitenwende von 1968 steckt mehr als nur eine politische Revolte: Männer ließen sich die Haare lang wachsen, Frauen wollten endlich die Pille nehmen dürfen, Drogen wurden konsumiert, Musikfestivals, Kommunen und neue Zeitschriften stellten das vorhandene Weltbild auf den Kopf.

So unterschiedliche Heldenfiguren wie Twiggy, Rudi Dutschke, Che Guevara, Jimi Hendrix und Mao Tse-Tung traten auf den Plan, während die deutsche Politik noch mit dem Vermächtnis der NS-Zeit zu kämpfen hatte.

Es wäre jedoch ein Irrtum zu glauben, alles habe erst 1968 begonnen. Detlef Siegfried zeigt, welche gesellschaftlichen Veränderungen und politischen Ereignisse schon im Vorfeld nötig waren, damit die Revolte der Schüler, Studenten und Lehrlinge Fahrt aufnehmen konnte. Dabei lässt er nicht nur die Gegenkultur in Großstädten wie Berlin oder Frankfurt am Main wieder aufleben, sondern rückt auch Schauplätze aus der bundesrepublikanischen Provinz ins Rampenlicht. Doch wie viel revolutionäre Dynamik ließ sich in die »roten« Siebzigerjahre hinüberretten? Und was wurde eigentlich aus all den Linken?

Detlef Siegfried, geb. 1958, ist Professor für neuere deutsche und europäische Geschichte an der Universität Kopenhagen. Er hat mehrere Bücher zu Alltagskultur, Pop und Linksradikalismus in der Bundesrepublik veröffentlicht, darunter Time is on my side. Konsum und Politik in der westdeutschen Jugendkultur der 60er Jahre (2006) und Sound der Revolte. Studien zur Kulturrevolution um 1968 (2008).

Willem van Toorn: De jongenskamer. Een gedicht

W is de hoofdpersoon in de gedichten van De jongenskamer die samen één verhalend gedicht vormen.

Het begint in de jaren voor de Tweede Wereldoorlog en eindigt in de onherkenbaar veranderde wereld van nu – maar wel met een liefdesgedicht.

De kamer achter de werkplaats van W’s vader, een kleermaker, is de plek waar onder invloed van de tijd en de geschiedenis de eerste ideeën van W en zijn broers ontstaan over liefde, vriendschap, kunst en sport – én over de politieke en sociale werkelijkheid en de rol die het individu daarin kan spelen.

Al de liefdeservaringen, de vriendschappen, de boeken, de reizen die het leven van W bepalen, lijken toch altijd met onzichtbare draden verbonden met de eerste waarnemingen uit de jongenskamer.

Willem van Toorn (Amsterdam, 1935) is dichter, schrijver en vertaler. Hij publiceerde een groot aantal romans en verhalen- en gedichtenbundels, en was redacteur van het literair tijdschrift Raster.

Patti Smith: The New Jerusalem (Nexus Bibliotheek – Tweetalige uitgave)

Het besluit van president Trump de Amerikaanse ambassade in Israël naar Jeruzalem te verhuizen inspireerde Patti Smith tot het schrijven van een gedicht, The New Jerusalem.

Dit nieuwe, nog ongepubliceerde werk van de beroemde punkpoëet verschijnt exclusief bij Nexus als tweetalige uitgave in de Nexus Bibliotheek. Naast The New Jerusalem zal deze uitgave ook een drietal eerdere gedichten bevatten. De vertaling van de gedichten wordt verzorgd door Onno Kosters. The New Jerusalem wordt gepresenteerd bij het Nexus-symposium ‘An Education in Counterculture’, 26 mei in Amsterdam.

. . .these things we saw written on the immense screen once known as sky. And these things we heard as prophecy’s lullaby. The mountain is the mountain. The Lord is the Lord. The holy city belongs to none. The mountains of Judah belong to none. The yielding seed belongs to none. And we are the new Jerusalem.

Patti Smith, USA 1946, is zangeres en dichteres. Als ‘Godmother of Punk’ protesteerde zij met krachtige, controversiële muziek tegen de gevestigde orde en wezenloze fabrieksarbeid in de vercommercialiseerde wereld. Ze groeide op met de muziek van Bob Dylan, leefde samen met fotograaf Robert Mapplethorpe en werd een bekend gezicht in de turbulente New Yorkse kunstscene.

In 1974 begon Smith op te treden met gitarist Lenny Kaye, met wie ze nog steeds de kern van de band The Patti Smith Group vormt. Haar debuutalbum Horses (1975) wordt gezien als een van de invloedrijkste albums in de geschiedenis van de rockmuziek. Samen met Bruce Springsteen schreef ze Because the Night, haar grootste hit. Naast vele albums schreef Smith ook dichtbundels en boeken, waaronder Just Kids (2010), haar bekroonde autobiografie over het leven in New York in de jaren zeventig en haar relatie met Mapplethorpe.

As a result, we have been able to make our selection from a body of remarkable and varied novels. In our longlist, we have attempted to represent different styles – from lyrical to experimental, and from epic to intimate.

“All human life is here, from outlaws making a living forging coins in Yorkshire’s badlands, to post-war London theatre society. We hope that in representing such a richness of styles and diversity of settings, the Walter Scott Prize can bring to public attention new work, while at the same time rewarding writers at the top of their game. We’re looking forward to bringing the best of these forward to shortlist in April.”

Schlecky Silberstein: Das Internet muss weg. Eine Abrechnung

Eine fundamentale Abrechnung mit dem Internet von einem der einflussreichsten Blogger der Republik

Ausgerechnet Schlecky Silberstein, Kultakteur in der Netzgemeinde, propagiert diesen Leitspruch: »Das Internet muss weg.« Der Blogger und Online Comedian kennt das Netz wie seine Westentasche. Und gerade deshalb warnt er davor. Dank Fake News, Filterblasen und Social Bots erlangen Konzerne, politische Entscheidungsträger und Kriminelle zunehmend Kontrolle über weite Teile der Menschheit. Schlecky Silberstein analysiert den »Daten-Kasino-Kapitalismus«, in dem unsere Daten als Handelsware gezielt eingesetzt werden, um unser Verhalten vorherzusagen und zu beeinflussen. Nicht nur Donald Trump wusste ihn auf seinem Weg zur Macht zu nutzen, auch unsere eigene Gesellschaft droht von programmierbaren Propaganda-Maschinen gelenkt zu werden. Können wir einen verantwortungsvollen Umgang mit dem Internet lernen oder hilft nur noch die sofortige Abschaltung?

Schlecky Silberstein, geboren 1981, ist einer der wichtigsten Blogger Deutschlands. Sein gleichnamiger Blog hat über 600.000 regelmäßige Leser, rund 130.000 folgen ihm auf Facebook. Die von ihm produzierte Comedy Show »Bohemian Browser Ballett« ist fester Bestandteil von »funk«, dem jungen Online-Medienangebot von ARD und ZDF. Schlecky Silberstein lebt in Berlin.
