    Camera Work in Artistic and Ethnographic Research

    This book introduces camera-based practices at the intersections of artistic and ethnographic research that critically examine the means of their own production and social embeddedness. In shared practices such as recording in the field, editing in post-production and modes of presentation, the camera is involved as an agent rather than an inno-cent device. How does the camera grapple with the invisible and how does it reveal what the camerawoman is unable to see? How do films, videos and photographs provide access to vulnerable knowledges and what presentation formats can extend the linearity of narration?

    The digital version contains links to audiovisual examples.

  • Design Struggles. Intersecting Histories, Pedagogies, and Perspectives | Claudia Mareis, Nina Paim (eds.) [E-Book PDF]

    Design Struggles. Intersecting Histories, Pedagogies, and Perspectives | Claudia Mareis, Nina Paim (eds.) [E-Book PDF]

    Design Struggles critically assesses the ways in which the design field is involved in creating, perpetuating, promoting and reinforcing injustice and inequality in social, political, economic, cultural and ecological systems. This book shows how this entanglement arose from Eurocentric and neoliberal thinking. The voices and practices represented here propose to question and disrupt the discipline of design from within, by problematizing the very notions of design. They aim to do so by generating new, anti-racist, post-capitalist, queer-feminist, environmentally conscious and community-based ideas on how to transform design. In this way, Design Struggles strives to forge sustainable, new practices within the design field that challenge the status quo and amplify underrepresented voices, both in the world of design, as well as beyond.

  • Narrative Mechanics. Strategies and Meanings in Games and Real Life | Beat Suter, René Bauer, Mela Kocher (eds.) [E-Book PDF]

    Narrative Mechanics. Strategies and Meanings in Games and Real Life | Beat Suter, René Bauer, Mela Kocher (eds.) [E-Book PDF]

    What do stories in games have in common with political narratives?

    This book identifies narrative strategies as mechanisms for meaning and manipulation in games and real life. It shows that the narrative mechanics so clearly identifiable in games are increasingly used (and abused) in politics and social life. They have »many faces«, displays and interfaces. They occur as texts, recipes, stories, dramas in three acts, movies, videos, tweets, journeys of heroes, but also as rewarding stories in games and as narratives in society – such as a career from rags to riches, the concept of modernity or market economy. Below their surface, however, narrative mechanics are a particular type of motivational design – of game mechanics.

    Die fragmentierte Stadt | Jürgen Krusche, Aya Domenig, Thomas Schärer, Julia Weber (Hg.) [E-Book PDF]

    Exklusion und Teilhabe im öffentlichen Raum

    Wo Menschen eng zusammenleben, gibt es Konkurrenz und Verdrängung. Beinahe selbstverständlich nehmen wir hin, dass viele öffentliche Räume nicht mehr von allen Bevölkerungsgruppen gleichermaßen genutzt werden. Dies geschieht ganz unbemerkt und widerspricht dem Ideal einer demokratischen, offenen Gesellschaft mit gleichberechtigten Mitgliedern. Wie erleben Menschen, die am Rande der Gesellschaft stehen (oder sich dort sehen) öffentliche Stadträume? Wo fühlen sie sich willkommen, wo nicht? Wo, wie und warum entstehen Nutzungskonflikte? Diesen Fragen geht das Projekt Die fragmentierte Stadt nach.

    Das Enriched E-Book enthält Videoarbeiten von Aya Domenig und Thomas Schärer.

    Aesthetics of the Commons | Cornelia Sollfrank, Felix Stalder, Shusha Niederberger (eds.) [E-Book PDF]

    What do a feminist server, an art space located in a public park in North London, a ‘pirate’ library of high cultural value yet dubious legal status, and an art school that emphasizes collectivity have in common? They all demonstrate that art can play an important role in imagining and producing a real quite different from what is currently hegemonic; that art has the possibility to not only envision or proclaim ideas in theory, but also to realize them materially.

    Not at Your Service. Manifestos for Design | Björn Franke, Hansuli Matter (eds.) [E-Book PDF]

    Not at Your Service: Manifestos for Design brings together the broad spectrum of beliefs, subjects and practices of designers at Zurich University of the Arts. It offers different approaches and insights on the present-day role and impact of design. It is not conceived as a finished project, but as a fluid document of its time. Collaborative design, interaction within complex systems, attention economics, the ecological shift, visual literacy, gender-neutral design, “quick and dirty” design ethnography, social responsibility, the value of ugliness, death futures, immersive technologies, identity and crises, design as a transformative discipline – all of these topics are presented for debate with passion, conviction and professional expertise.

    Curating Contemporary Music Festivals | Brandon Farnsworth [E-Book PDF]

    A New Perspective on Music’s Mediation

    Contemporary music, like other arts, is dealing with the rise of “curators” laying claim to everything from festivals to playlists – but what are they and what do they do anyway? Drawing from backgrounds ranging from curatorial studies to festival studies and musicology, Brandon Farnsworth lays out a theory for understanding curatorial practices in contemporary music, and how they could be a solution to the field’s diminishing social relevance. The volume focuses on two case studies, the Munich Biennale for New Music Theatre, and the Maerzmusik Festival at the Berliner Festspiele, putting them in a transdisciplinary history of curatorial practice, and showing what music curatorial practice can be.
