Antonin Artaud – Le Visionnaire Hurlant par Laurent Vignat

Breton, Eluard, Aragon, Cocteau, Picasso, Chanel, Abel Gance, Anaïs Nin, Colette, Diego Rivera, Lacan, Desnos, Van Gogh, Sartre et Beauvoir, plus tard Jim Morrison et Patti Smith…

Ces noms jalonnent la trajectoire d’Antonin Artaud, comète colérique qui a irrigué l’avant-garde artistique et littéraire de l’entre-deux-guerres et irrigue encore notre époque.

Par-delà le cliché de l’aliéné, du mythe du poète fou auteur d’une oeuvre monumentale, cette biographie s’attache à souligner le caractère novateur, toujours d’actualité, de son message : Artaud a imaginé le cinéma en relief, oeuvré à un profond renouvellement de l’art théâtral, rejeté le colonialisme européen, remis en cause les idéologies mortifères du XXe siècle, dénoncé le capitalisme et ses impératifs productivistes, esquissé l’altermondialisme.

Après neuf ans d’internement, il est aussi celui qui a fait vaciller la psychiatrie, ses catégories et sa thérapeutique des électrochocs. Plus que jamais, dans notre époque incertaine, Antonin Artaud est une voix à faire entendre. Une biographie à lire comme un roman.

Né en 1970, Laurent Vignat poursuit des études de lettres à la Sorbonne et devient professeur de français. Il publie son premier roman en 2006, après quelques textes épars publiés dans des revues.
Sur des carnets, il saisit les bizarreries d’une société qu’il juge de plus en plus folle, ses contemporains, des sourires, des tics de langage et des bribes de vie qui deviennent, à force de travail et d’obstination, des histoires.

Quand il n’écrit pas, il fait la classe ; il pédale en côte chalonnaise ; il lit ; il observe ; il regarde ses enfants grandir ; il écoute son épouse ; il suit les doigts graciles de son fils lorsqu’ils filent une impro sur le piano du salon ; il prépare un osso bucco, il s’endort avec Bach ou Jarrett dans les oreilles…

Leonard Cohen: The Flame

The final collection of poetry from Leonard Cohen’s body of work, introduced by son Adam Cohen. Plumbs the depths of humanity’s darkest questions with a sense of yearning. Illustrations and notes throughout

The Flame is a stunning collection of Leonard Cohen’s last poems, selected and ordered by the author in the final months of his life. Featuring lyrics, prose pieces and illustrations, the book also contains an extensive selection from Cohen’s notebooks, which he kept in poetic form throughout his life, and offers an unprecedentedly intimate look inside the life and mind of a singular artist and thinker.

An enormously powerful final chapter in Cohen’s storied literary career, The Flame showcases the full range of Leonard Cohen’s lyricism, from the exquisitely transcendent to the darkly funny. By turns devastatingly sad and winningly strange, these are the works of a poet and lyricist who has plumbed the depths of our darkest questions and come up wanting, yearning for more.

Leonard Cohen began his artistic career in 1956 with the publication of his first book of poetry, Let Us Compare Mythologies. He went on to publish 12 more books, including two celebrated novels and gained worldwide recognition as an iconic singer-songwriter.

He released 14 studio albums, including three in the last years of his life when he also became one of the most acclaimed arena performing artists in the world.

Among his numerous honours, he is the recipient of the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award 2010, the Prince of Asturias Award for Literature 2011, the inaugural New England PEN Award for Excellence in Lyrics 2012, the 2016 Juno Awards for Song of the Year and Album of the Year, and he has been inducted into the Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and the US Songwriters Hall of Fame. He died in November 2016.

Dennis Whitehead: SHELL SHOCK. Twin Sisters Struck Down by the Horrors of World War I

 

The true story of twin sisters, Dorothea and Gladys Cromwell, born into New York’s Gilded Age, living lives of wealth and privilege, as told by Dennis Whitehead.

Amid the fervor of America’s entry into the First World War, the sisters volunteered for service with the American Red Cross in France, a country they knew and loved. To French soldiers seeking refreshment and solace in the Red Cross canteen, the identical twins were known as anges jumeaux, the twin angels.

Witnessing the non-stop horrors in the worst fighting in the war, the sisters were utterly exhaustion, both mentally and physically, when they boarded the SS La Lorraine for the return journey home. They had wished to continue their service to the people of France after the fighting stopped but were convinced to return to New York by their brother.

What happened on that ship, on that frigid January 1919 evening, almost one-hundred years ago, is one of the great untold stories of World War I, and the impact that modern warfare had upon not just the men in the trenches, but upon its women and other non-combatants, as well as civilians, that remained unrecognized until the Vietnam War.

Dennis Whitehead: A native of Cincinnati and a graduate of Ohio University, Dennis Whitehead is a writer, photographer, and media producer in Arlington, Virginia.

David Bowie. The Oral History by Dylan Jones

Dylan Jones’s engrossing, magisterial biography of David Bowie is unlike any Bowie story ever written.

Drawn from over 180 interviews with friends, rivals, lovers, and collaborators, some of whom have never before spoken about their relationship with Bowie, this oral history weaves a hypnotic spell as it unfolds the story of a remarkable rise to stardom and an unparalleled artistic path.

Tracing Bowie’s life from the English suburbs to London to New York to Los Angeles, Berlin, and beyond, its collective voices describe a man profoundly shaped by his relationship with his schizophrenic half-brother Terry; an intuitive artist who could absorb influences through intense relationships and yet drop people cold when they were no longer of use; and a social creature equally comfortable partying with John Lennon and dining with Frank Sinatra.

By turns insightful and deliciously gossipy, David Bowie is as intimate a portrait as may ever be drawn. It sparks with admiration and grievances, lust and envy, as the speakers bring you into studios and bedrooms they shared with Bowie, and onto stages and film sets, opening corners of his mind and experience that transform our understanding of both artist and art.

Including illuminating, never-before-seen material from Bowie himself, drawn from a series of Jones’s interviews with him across two decades, David Bowie is an epic, unforgettable cocktail-party conversation about a man whose enigmatic shapeshifting and irrepressible creativity produced one of the most sprawling, fascinating lives of our time.

Dylan Jones is the multi-award winning editor of GQ magazine. He has been an editor at i-D magazine, The Face, Arena, the Observer and the Sunday Times. He writes for the Mail on Sunday, is a Vice President of the Hay Festival and a board member of the Norman Mailer Foundation. He has written ten books and is currently working with U2 on a book celebrating their record-breaking 360° tour.

Antonin Artaud: Anthology

“I am the man,” wrote Artaud, “who has best charted his inmost self.” Antonin Artaud was a great poet who, like Poe, Holderlin, and Nerval, wanted to live in the infinite and asked that the human spirit burn in absolute freedom.

To society, he was a madman. Artaud, however, was not insane, but in luciferian pursuit of what society keeps hidden. The man who wrote Van Gogh the Man Suicided by Society raged against the insanity of social institutions with insight that proves more prescient with every passing year. Today, as Artaud’s vatic thunder still crashes above the “larval confusion” he despised, what is most striking in his writings is an extravagant lucidity.

This collection gives us quintessential Artaud on the occult, magic, the theater, mind and body, the cosmos, rebellion, and revolution in its deepest sense.

The War of the Worlds by H.G. Wells

H. G. Wells was born Herbert George in Bromley, Kent, England, on September 21, 1866. His father was a professional cricketer and sometimes shopkeeper, his mother a former lady’s maid.

Although “Bertie” left school at fourteen to become a draper’s apprentice (a life he detested), he later won a scholarship to the Normal School of Science in London, where he studied with the famous Thomas Henry Huxley. He began to sell articles and short stories regularly in 1893.

In 1895, his immediately successful novel rescued him from a life of penury on a schoolteacher’s salary. His other “scientific romances”—The Island of Dr. Moreau (1896), The Invisible Man (1897), The War of the Worlds (1898), The First Men in the Moon (1901), and The War in the Air (1908)—won him the distinction as the father of science fiction.

Henry James saw in Wells the most gifted writer of the age, but Wells, having coined the phrase “the war that will end war” to describe World War I, became increasingly disillusioned and focused his attention on educating mankind with his bestselling Outline of History (1920) and his later utopian works. Living until 1946, Wells witnessed a world more terrible than any of his imaginative visions, and he bitterly observed: “Reality has taken a leaf from my book and set itself to supercede me.”

The War of the Worlds (1898) conjures a terrifying, tentacled race of Martians who devastate the Earth and feed on their human victims while their voracious vegetation, the red weed, spreads over the ruined planet. After the novel’s hero finds himself trapped in what is left of London, despairing at the destruction of human civilization, he discovers that life on Earth is more resilient than he had imagined. Adapted by Orson Welles for his notorious 1938 radio drama and subsequently by many filmmakers, H. G. Wells’s timeless story shows no sign of losing its grip on readers’ imaginations.

Cyrille Offermans: Dagboeknotities. Een iets beschuttere plek misschien

Heel 2017 schreef Cyrille Offermans aan wat je nog het beste zou kunnen omschrijven als een intellectueel journaal: een verzameling notities, beschouwingen, herinneringen, observaties en essayistische commentaren op gelezen boeken en gebeurtenissen in de wereld.

Dat de barre werkelijkheid voortdurend zijn plaats op de voorgrond opeist, zegt genoeg over onze tijd. Het boek (en dus het jaar) begint en eindigt met de doffe ellende in Syrië.

Daartussen presenteert zich een baaierd aan onderwerpen – van de Franse verkiezingen en de afnemende tekenvaardigheid van de schooljeugd tot en met uiteenzettingen over bibliomanie, de betekenis van carnaval, de eerste woordjes van een kleinkind of de ziekte van een vriendin.

Er is alles in de wereld. En er is alles in dit boek.

Cyrille Offermans (Geleen, 8 april 1945) is een Nederlandse schrijver, essayist en criticus. Hij publiceert met name in De Groene Amsterdammer, Vrij Nederland, De Standaard en Raster. Bij het laatste literair tijdschrift werkte hij tevens als redacteur. Hij publiceerde meer dan twintig boeken in uiteenlopende genres, vooral essayistiek in het grensgebied van literatuur, filosofie, cultuurgeschiedenis en politiek. Zijn werk werd diverse malen met prestigieuze prijzen bekroond.

Die 70. Frankfurter Buchmesse von 10.-14. Oktober 2018

Universelle Menschenrechte, internationale Vielfalt, boomendes Lizenzgeschäft und ein Fest für Autoren

Ein Blick auf die Themen der 70. Frankfurter Buchmesse

Die 70. Frankfurter Buchmesse (10.-14. Oktober 2018) fällt in eine bewegte Zeit: Während die Idee eines geeinten Europas in die Defensive gerät, gewinnen populistische Gruppierungen in vielen demokratischen Ländern an Zulauf.

Das politische Klima in Deutschland ist aufgeheizt – nicht zuletzt wegen der bevorstehenden Landtagswahlen in Bayern und Hessen. Gleichzeitig verändern sich die wirtschaftlichen Voraussetzungen der Buch- und Verlagsbranche grundlegend: Immer weniger Menschen beziehen ihre Informationen aus etablierten Medien; „alternative Fakten“ sind längst Teil der Berichterstattung. Den demokratischen Meinungsbildungsprozess durch gut recherchierte Inhalte zu ermöglichen, hat für Branchenakteure oberste Priorität und ist mit Blick auf eine immer kleiner werdende Zahl von Lesern und Buchkäufern zugleich die größte Herausforderung.

„Angesichts der drängenden Themen, die unsere Gesellschaft heute beschäftigen, ist die Frankfurter Buchmesse eine wichtige öffentliche Plattform“, sagte Juergen Boos heute auf einer Pressekonferenz in Berlin. „Die internationalste Buchmesse steht seit ihrer Wiedereröffnung nach dem Zweiten Weltkrieg 1949 für Meinungs- und Publikationsfreiheit, für internationale Vernetzung und Dialog. Auch die 70. Frankfurter Buchmesse wird unter politischen Vorzeichen stattfinden. Und für uns, wie für alle anderen internationalen Buchmessen, gilt: Diskussionen zuzulassen – auch und gerade zu kontroversen Themen.
Polarisierende Autoren und Meinungen auszuhalten und argumentativ zu widerlegen, sind Errungenschaften einer demokratischen Gesellschaft. Diese Grundsätze sind Teil unserer DNA.“

An fünf Tagen im Oktober werden in Frankfurt Geschäfte gemacht, wirtschaftliche Tendenzen analysiert, gesellschaftliche Phänomene diskutiert und kulturelle Trends präsentiert. Die Frankfurter Buchmesse bezieht mit einem Veranstaltungsprogramm im Zentrum Weltempfang (Halle 4.1 B 81) und im neuen Frankfurt Pavilion selbst Stellung: Hier geht es um Kunst im Spannungsfeld von Macht und Moral, um Strategien gegen antidemokratische Tendenzen, um Grenzbereiche politischer Kommunikation. Auf der Eröffnungs-Pressekonferenz am Dienstag, 9. Oktober 2018, spricht die nigerianische Autorin Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, deren Manifest „We Should All Be Feminists“ eine Diskussion über Feminismus ausgelöst hat. Hochrangige internationale Vertreter aus Politik und Gesellschaft haben ihr Kommen angekündigt, darunter Federica Mogherini, die Hohe Vertreterin der EU für Außen- und Sicherheitspolitik, Prof. Monika Grütters, Staatsministerin für Kultur und Medien, und Mamuka Bachtadse, Ministerpräsident Georgiens, dem Gastland der Frankfurter Buchmesse 2018.

Die Frankfurter Buchmesse ist mit über 7.300 Ausstellern aus 102 Ländern, rund 286.000 Besuchern, über 4.000 Veranstaltungen und rund 10.000 akkreditierten Journalisten und Bloggern die größte Fachmesse für das internationale Publishing.

Darüber hinaus ist sie ein branchenübergreifender Treffpunkt für Player aus den Bereichen Bildung, Filmwirtschaft, Games, Wissenschaft und Fachinformation. Einen inhaltlichen Schwerpunkt bildet seit 1976 der jährlich wechselnde Ehrengast, der dem Messepublikum auf vielfältige Weise seinen Buchmarkt, seine Literatur und Kultur präsentiert.

Die Frankfurter Buchmesse organisiert die Beteiligung deutscher Verlage an rund 20 internationalen Buchmessen und veranstaltet ganzjährig Fachveranstaltungen in den wichtigen internationalen Märkten.

Der Business Club, mit Premium Service, Networking-Formaten und Konferenzen wie THE MARKETS, ist ausschließlich zugänglich mit dem Business Ticket, der Premium-Option für B2B-Besucher.

Das 2016 entwickelte Format THE ARTS+ ist Messe, Business Festival und ein internationaler Treffpunkt der Kultur- und Kreativindustrie. Ziel ist es, die Potentiale der Digitalisierung für kreative Inhalte zu nutzen und neue Geschäftsfelder zu erschließen.

Frankfurt EDU, das internationale Bildungsformat der Frankfurter Buchmesse, präsentiert innovative Konzepte, Inhalte und Technologien für die Zukunft des Lernens.

Das Campus Weekend ist das Wochenende für Studierende auf der Frankfurter Buchmesse. Die Frankfurter Buchmesse ist ein Tochterunternehmen des Börsenvereins des Deutschen Buchhandels.

Forum of Live Art Amsterdam 2018 in Arti et Amicitiae

FLAM (Forum of Live Art Amsterdam) 2018 is een jaarlijks terugkerende tentoonstelling in Arti et Amicitiae, waarin de grote verscheidenheid aan uitingen binnen de hedendaagse performancekunst ruimte krijgt.

FLAM VIII
Look at me, then look at me again
FLAM LIVE: 4 – 7 SEPTEMBER
FLAM ENCOUNTER: 12 – 30 SEPTEMBER

 

De achtste editie vangt aan met FLAM Live: een intensieve week van live-kunst, waarin het lichaam met diens vele betekenissen het medium is. Deze editie wordt uitgebreid met FLAM Encounter: een tentoonstelling met installaties die op verschillende manieren hun oorsprong vinden in een performance. Middels deze transformatie biedt FLAM VIII een podium voor zowel de efemere als de materiële kant van diverse artistieke praktijken.

Om verschillende perspectieven op de werken te activeren hanteert FLAM VIII een metaforisch kader. De performances in de live-week worden opgevat als elementen van een wilde tuin; de toeschouwers worden uitgenodigd door de wilde tuin te dwalen, en samen met anderen de live-ervaring te delen.

De tentoonstelling wordt opgevat als een cruise-tuin, waarin objecten een beweging aansporen. FLAM Encounter nodigt het publiek uit om met een cruisende attitude de tentoonstellingszalen te betrekken, verschillende gezichtspunten in te nemen en een persoonlijke relatie aan te gaan met de objecten en andere lichamen in de ruimte. Het programma is ontworpen om onverwachte kruisbestuivingen te genereren tussen de kunstenaars, hun werk en het publiek.

Walter Benjamin: Deutsche Menschen – Eine Folge von Briefen

Von Ehre ohne Ruhm, von Grösse ohne Glanz, von Würde ohne Sold

Die 1936 in einem Schweizer Verlag erschienene Briefsammlung “Deutsche Menschen” ist Walter Benjamins letzte Veröffentlichung zu Lebzeiten.

Siebenundzwanzig Briefe von Kant bis Goethe, von Droste-Hülshoff bis Büchner aus den Jahren zwischen 1767 und 1883 hat er zusammengestellt und kommentiert, um seinen Landsleuten das bessere Beispiel eines aufgeklärten und humanistischen Bürgertums vorzuhalten.

Das Private und das Objektive der Briefe sind durch den Abstand des Betrachters nicht mehr Gegensätze: Beides vermischt sich, gleicht sich an. Die Personen mit ihren Bedürfnissen gehen auf in ihrer Epoche, ihre Freuden und Schmerzen zeigen sich als Zeichen ihrer Zeit und Herkunft.

Chinese Authorities Razing Ai Weiwei’s Studio Part of Larger Attack on Artistic Expression

_____________________________________________________________________________

August 7, 2018
NEW YORK – The unannounced demolition of Chinese artist Ai Weiwei’s studio in Beijing is symptomatic of a larger attack on human rights and artistic expression in China, said PEN America today.

On August 6, Artist and activist Ai Weiwei announced on social media that authorities had demolished his Beijing artist studio. Ai stated that he had received no advance notice prior to the demolition. Although several of his works were damaged in the studio’s demolition, the artist explained that he is more preoccupied with the effects of China’s “urban development” projects on artists and migrant populations, saying: “Since last year, a policy was enacted to clear out migrant workers from Beijing . . . Those who do not belong to the establishment, including artists, are always the first to be discriminated against and sacrificed.”

Within the past few years, artist colonies including Songzhuang and Caochangdi—the latter an arts district that Ai helped develop—have been targeted for eviction and demolition. Artists have cited both runaway economic development and political disfavor as rationales for authorities’ hostile attitudes. More broadly, an urban development policy conceived last year to push migrant workers out of Beijing has empowered local authorities to take unannounced action to demolish property, a policy that has led to thousands of migrant workers losing their homes.

“Regardless of the government’s motives, the unannounced demolition of an artist’s studio is a demonstration of a lack of appreciation or even acknowledgment for the role of the artist in society,” said Julie Trébault, Director of PEN America’s Artists at Risk Connection. “Around the world, artist studios and communes are spaces to be cherished, not discarded.”

PEN America leads the Artists at Risk Connection (ARC), a program dedicated to assisting imperiled artists and strengthening the network of organizations that support them. If you or someone you know is an artist at risk, contact ARC here.

PEN America stands at the intersection of literature and human rights to protect open expression in the United States and worldwide. They champion the freedom to write, recognizing the power of the word to transform the world. Their mission is to unite writers and their allies to celebrate creative expression and defend the liberties that make it possible.
