Cutting Out Reading the New York Times Lorraine O’Grady

Published by Unbidden Tongues, 2022, 12 pages (b/w ill.), 21.7 × 28 cm, English

Price: €4

Produced on the occasion of the event Unbidden Tongues #6: Cutting Out Reading the New York Times, Saturday, April 9 from 4-6pm. The event unfolded over a newly conceived spoken-word version of Lorraine O’Grady’s collage series Cutting Out the New York Times. The initial work consists of 26 “cut-out” or “found” newspaper poems that O’Grady made on consecutive Sundays from June to November in 1977.

It is the sixth title from Unbidden Tongues, a series edited by Isabelle Sully that focuses on previously produced yet relatively uncirculated work by cultural practitioners busy with questions surrounding civility and civic life—particularly so in relation to language.

Myths and Manifestos Studio for Propositional Cinema

Published by Verlag der Buchhandlung Walther König, Köln & Kunstverein München, München, 2021, 244 pages, 12.2 × 18.3 cm, English

Price: €20

Myths and Manifestos is a compendium of dramatic and polemical texts written and released, by the artist entity Studio for Propositional Cinema between 2009 and 2021. Scripts for a play, a libretto, and an epic poem are punctuated by manifestos and public speeches that act as bridges between them. Together they reflect and warn of an encroaching ideological dark age in which our culture’s communicational forms are becoming increasingly endangered and alienated from our collective control, while making some modest proposals for how we can make space to relearn and retain them, if there is still enough time to do so.
