La colección de Panther = Panther’s Collection
ed., texts, interviews and photogr. by  Mirjam Wirz ;
designed by Urs Lehni & Pascal Alexander

Zurich : Rollo Press, 2014
191 p. : Ill. ; 30 cm
Bilingual German Spanish.

This book is part of Mirjam Wirz’s Master thesis in Transdisciplinary Studies at the Zurich University of the Arts (ZHdK).

This book is the 3rd in a series. To date, the following have been published: Vol. 1 - Sonidero City: sound system and DJ culture in Mexio and Colombia (publ. in August 2013); Vol. 2 - Black and white bootleg ed. of volume 1 (publ. in Nov. 2013).

José Luis Lugo Hernández, owner of Panther Publishing in Mexico City, which specialises in printing flyers for the „sonidos“ - dance parties featuring deejays, immense sound systems and flashing light shows – has amassed a sizeable collection of these flyers since the movement’s beginnings in Mexico and Central America in the 1960s and ‘70s. The standard for the flyer and poster design of the sound system movement was set by Jaime Ruelas, an independent graphic designer who drew many of the 300 pieces selected from the collection to be featured here. Others are based on his style, which became highly influential in the movement’s visual presence.

Keith Boadwee : 1989-2013

ed. Julien Gremaud ; graphic design Pierre Girardin

Zürich : Hacienda Books, 2014

This publication is issue 5 (June 2014) of Micronaut.

Published on the occasion of the exhibition of same name, in Hacienda Zürich, June 12-July 5, 2014.

Keith Boadwee was born in Mississippi in 1961 and studied at UCLA in the late 80s where he worked with Paul McCarthy and Chris Burden who have both been influential on his practice. Boadwee’s work achieved some notoriety in the early-to-mid-90s when he was grouped with other artists who were working in the arena of “identity politics.” Works of note from this period include his “anal targets” and enema paintings. Boadwee’s works have been included in the Venice Biennial, the New Museum’s “Bad Girls” exhibition, MOCA Los Angeles’ Portfolio of Photography, curated by Cindy Sherman, PS1’s “Into Me/Out of Me” and Bay Area Now 3. Recent exhibitions include solo shows at White Columns, New York, Rocksbox, Portland, OR and Good Children Gallery, New Orleans, LA as part of Dan Cameron’s PROSPECT series. Boadwee’s work has been reviewed in numerous publications including Artforum, Art in America, The Village Voice, The New York Times and The LA Times.

Boadwee now produces photo-based works, drawings, paintings, and sculptures that address his continued fascination with actionism, the every day, and the abject.

Waska Tatay
by Raphaël Verona and Thomas Rousset (photographs)

Text: Raphaël and Vilma Verona
Design: This is not

IDPURE éditions, 2014

Thomas Rousset and Raphaël Verona’s Waska Tatay is fairly ambiguous at first glance. The cover is a simple yellow-to-blue fade with the title placed inconspicuously on the spine; but the content is altogether more arresting. Using a mixture of reportage and staged portraiture the photo book documents the pair’s trip to the Altiplano region of Bolivia and their encounters with witch doctors, spiritual healers and medicine men; uncovering the rites and rituals of these ancient orders and illuminating some of their extraordinary mythologies.

What’s particularly engaging about this study is the counterpoint between traditions that date back millennia and their modern setting. We see a witch doctor up a tree, in ceremonial dress but clutching her cell phone to her face, a pair of women in costumes and masks sat next to a TV/VCR and surrounded by stuffed toys and shoes, and a man dressed head-to-toe as a fish in a modern room that could easily be a theatre green room. This balance between old and new, good and evil, spiritual and physical creates a delicious tension in the book, particularly for a Western reader, whose secularised view of the world will find the unification of these seemingly contradictory worlds fascinating. (It’s Nice That)
