BOOK TV #05: Luca Beeler – Children Books, 2015

Luca Beeler presents a selection of children’s books. In Beeler’s view, children’s books carry a specific set of expectations and aspirations: the romantic concept of the primordial, the “childishly naive”, as well as enlightenment models of education, or the discovery of the child as utopian matter. Children’s books demonstrate rather explicitly how much those narratives are subject to the ideals and ideals of childhood and society. Beeler’s presentation traces the stories and didactics of several examples, from the historical avant-gardes until today.

BOOK TV #01: Alex Freedman on Eau de Cologne, 2013

– ARBEITEN MIT ANDEREN ENTRÄGEN. DOLLARS TO DEUTSCHMARKS. ABUSE OF POWER COMES AS NO SURPRISE. WOLLEN FRAUEN UND MÄNNER EIGENTLICH DAS GLEICHE? GENDER AND LANGUAGE. THE LEFTOVERS OF COMMUNICATION. WHAT'S LOVE GOT TO DO WITH IT? ARE WE HAVING FUN YET? –
 
Published as three serialized editions by Monika Sprüth from 1985-1989, Eau de Cologne brought together a pantheon of female art world arbitrators laid between Rosemarie Trockel-styled endpapers. Appropriating Andy Warhol’s Interview Magazine, the publication manifested as an elusive melange of feminist journal, who’s who trade magazine, and intervention with Cologne's then-infamous machismo. In a conversation with Alex Freedman, APNews presents all three iterations of this regularly cited, yet seldom seen, fabled cult artifact.
