Markus Karstiess, Claudio Abate, Roberth Smithson, With the Eyes of the Earth, Colli publishing platform, 500 copies, 38.5 x 28, 2018, produced for the exhibition With the Eyes of the Earth, 2018, Roma.

49 years ago Robert Smithson made his first earthwork Asphalt Rundown in October 1969 in an abandoned quarry near Rome with Galleria L’Attico. This publication brings together rare and previously unpublished material from the Archivio Claudio Abate  and Fabio Sargentini (Galleria L’Attico) documenting the iconic flow and the exhibition Smithson realized inside Galleria L’Attico, as well as sculptures and video works from Markus Karstiess who made a dig for the remains of the asphalt in 2014.

In the exhibition With the Eyes of the Earth, conceived by Markus Karstiess, the artist practices what in some places might be called artistic research. That is to say, rather, Markus Karstiess is following through in a personal quest in this exhibition, into what remains of Robert Smithson’s Asphalt Rundown (1969), located in Rome. Karstiess finds himself in the combined role of artist-curator. This already provides a glimpse into the complex nature of his artistic oeuvre, a lens to the exhibition itself, which in turn consists of diverse visible and invisible individual components.

SPORTIFICATION
Eurovisions, Performativity and Playgrounds

ss


SPORTIFICATION is a long term research and a set of cultural actions based on several archives about “historical” Eureopean TV casts or Eurovisions (Games without frontiers/Jeux Sans Frontieres/Spiel Onhe Grenzen). Sportification/società, agonismi e giochi senza frontiere (Sportification / eurovisions, performativity and playgrounds), analyzes, with an interdisciplinary approach, the issue of agonism in the public and game in contemporary cities/societies. Sportification  is an inter-disciplinary research focused on analyzing the subject of sport, of agon and of game nowadays. The basis of the work is a critical-comparative and sociological analysis dictated by a wide archive of images and videos of the famous tv-show Giochi Senza Frontiere / Jeux Sans Frontieres / Spiel Onhe Grenzen / It’s a Knockout, which constitues a master guide and a “true” archeology of the competitive action from the times of picturesque villages, to Eurovision, passing through the postpolitical era of European Community. The project deals both with the utopia of a playful society and with the social musculature leading to “sportification” of the collective body and to politicization of sport. It includes several text-contributions: David Robbins, Cesare Pietroiusti, Alexander Skidan (Chto Delat), Luisa Perlo, Claudio Cravero, Cecilia Casorati, Sven Luttiken, Valentin Torrens, Fabio Cafagna, Krzysztof Gutfrański, Gunnar Schmidt, Boris Nieslony, Tom Marioni, The Bureau of Melodramatic Research, Elena Volpato, Denis Isaia, Lisa Le Feuvre, Myriam Laplante, Armin Linke, Gianni Magrin. In the book you will find memorabilia, games, masquerade with critical contributions of experts and researchers on the connection between art, sport and society, european and community policies.

YES YES YES Alternative Press
'66-'77, From Provo To Punk

yy


The ultimate compendium of counterculture press in the United States and the Netherlands during the heady decades of the 1960s and ’70s, this volume is the definition of sex, drugs, and rock ‘n roll. From underground pornography, free love, anti-establishment anarchism, and Provo, to anti-war protests, spiritual empowerment, the Black Panthers, and women’s liberation, it’s all here. Page after page of magazine covers, articles, advertisements, and clippings encapsulate the era when academia revolted, gays marched in the streets, and hippies wondered if Jesus got high, too.
