Side Magazine: The Moped Rider
Yasmine d'O. (ed.)

What are you hiding under your helmet, dear Moped Rider? Where will your wanderings lead and what encounters might they bring?

The second issue of Side Magazine is dedicated to the manifold figure of the Moped Rider, which is approached differently by the seven contributors. These include the film critic Lars Ole Kristiansen, who follows Nanni Moretti’s vespa through Rome in the movie Caro Diario (1993), playing the role of a tourist in his own life. A reprinted chapter from Michele Bernstein’s autofiction novel All the King’s Horses (1960), tells the tale of late-night meanderings through Paris, and Kristian Vistrup Madsen addresses the changing intimacy between the musing figures in Caspar David Friedrich’s series of paintings Two Men Contemplating the Moon (1819–c. 1830). Side Magazine’s executive editor Yasmine d’O. is in conversation with curators Marcella Lista and Lou Ferrand about the place and movement of visitors in exhibition spaces.

The full list of contributors includes: Haci Akman, Michèle Bernstein, Lou Ferrand, Pierre-Henry Frangne, Patrick Jagoda, Yasmine d’O., Lars Ole Kristiansen, Marcella Lista, and Kristian Vistrup Madsen.

Side Magazine is conceived of as a site of research, each issue giving shape to one of the seven characters that will be staged at Bergen Assembly in 2022, convened by artist Saâdane Afif.

Stephanie Oursler
5 Cuts

Stephanie Oursler’s 5 Cuts, an artist book originally self-published in 1975 in Rome, comprises a series of black and white images accompanied by a handwritten text. The artist had found the displayed images – stills from unidentified silent films – and combined them with her autobiographical writing, creating both an intimate recollection and a literary construction of her own life. Stephanie Oursler’s artistic vocabulary tells of her active participation in women’s groups and networks in Rome, in which political issues were addressed via a distinctive articulation between memory, history and fiction. 5 Cuts weaves together the personal and the political to speak about something that lays beyond language and image.

Stephanie Oursler (*1938, Baltimore, USA, † 2018, Milan, Italy) arrived in Rome in the early 1970s from New York, where she had been an activist in the civil rights and in the women’s liberation movements. In 1976, together with Carla Arcadi, Suzanne Santoro and others, she co-founded the Cooperativa del Beato Angelico, an all-women exhibition space in Rome. 5 Cuts is here reprinted in its original form and expanded by a text by the art historian Giovanna Zapperi.

5 Cuts is the first title from Re:Re. This series of reprints aims to make available historical material that we consider relevant today in both political and artistic terms. Re:Re is co-edited by Verena Buttmann, Johanna Klingler, Jonas von Lenthe and Max Stocklosa.

Steffen Zillig
The Decolonization of America

In the not too distant future, having completed the genetic decoding of its population, the government of the United States of America decides to send those from elsewhere back out into the world. This is a remarkable attempt to re-establish society as it was before the devastating conquest of the American continent by European immigrants. Soon, convoys of “Euro-Americans” are migrating back to Europe, even though it has been decades since they had any contact with the cranky landmass beyond the Atlantic. Because Europe has long since cut itself off, wanting nothing more to do with the rest of the world. And then, all of a sudden, American refugee boats appear off the French coast...

In The Decolonization of America, Steffen Zillig creates a fictional future by collaging fragments of popular culture, combining excerpts from old and new adventure comics with washed-out photographs from the Internet. The result is a social fantasy whose bizarre fault lines and conflicts bear an uncanny resemblance to those of the present day.

Steffen Zillig makes art. He is part of Briefing Room, an artist-run space in Brussels, and he edits the underground magazine Intercity. He works in Hamburg and is a member of a union.

Steffen Zillig
Die Dekolonisierung Amerikas

In nicht allzu ferner Zukunft entschließt sich die Regierung der Vereinigten Staaten von Amerika, die zugewanderten Teile ihrer nun vollständig genetisch decodierten Bevölkerung zurück in die Welt zu schicken. Es ist der bemerkenswerte Versuch, eine Gesellschaft wiederherzustellen, wie sie vor der verheerenden Eroberung des amerikanischen Kontinents durch europäische Einwanderer herrschte. Also ziehen bald Konvois von „Rückwanderern“ nach Europa, obwohl seit Jahrzehnten kein Kontakt mehr zu dem schrulligen Erdteil jenseits des Atlantiks besteht. Denn Europa hat sich eingeigelt und will vom Rest der Welt schon lange nichts mehr wissen, als plötzlich amerikanische Flüchtlingsboote die französische Küste erreichen...

In Die Dekolonisierung Amerikas erzählt Steffen Zillig eine fiktive Zukunft aus kleinteilig collagierten Versatzstücken der Populärkultur. Dafür kombiniert er Ausschnitte aus alten und neuen Abenteuercomics mit verwaschenen Fotografien aus dem Internet. Dazwischen entspinnt sich eine Sozialfantasie, deren abenteuerliche Verwerfungen und Konfliktlinien denen der Gegenwart verblüffend ähnlich werden.

Steffen Zillig macht Kunst. Mit Kolleginnen und Kollegen betreibt er den Briefing Room in Brüssel und gibt das Künstlermagazin Intercity heraus. Er arbeitet in Hamburg und ist Mitglied einer Gewerkschaft.

Side Magazine: The Professor
Yasmine d'O. (ed.)

Side Magazine is conceived as a site of research for the fourth edition of Bergen Assembly convened by Saâdane Afif. Yasmine d’O., who has been invited as curator of the upcoming edition, will be the executive editor. Side Magazine is dedicated to the seven characters in The Heptahedron, a play written by the French poet, essayist, and scholar Thomas Clerc in 2016. In order of apparition these characters are the Professor, the Moped Rider, the Bonimenteur, the Fortune Teller, an Acrobats, the Coalman, and the Tourist.
The first issue of Side Magazine is dedicated to the figure of the Professor. It features seven articles, each of which explores the identity, role, and position of the Professor. Contributors include Uli Aigner, Lili Reynaud-Dewar, Jörg Heiser, Christian Nyampeta, Marjorie Senechal, and Vivian Slee.

Seven issues of Side Magazine will be released in the run up to the opening of Bergen Assembly 2022, opening September 8. A special eighth issue will be published after the opening days. This, combined with the existing seven issues as a collection, constitute the exhibition catalogue and guide.

Rejected. Designs for the European Flag
Jonas von Lenthe (Ed.)

The flag bearing twelve yellow stars on a blue background has become Europe’s most recognisable symbol. Since its introduction by the Council of Europe in 1955, it has stood for the unification of Europe’s nation states. It was precisely this yellow circle of stars that prevailed over more than 150 flag ideas sent to the Council of Europe by a host of diverse private individuals. These colourful designs are being now published in Rejected for the first time. They document the continent’s zeitgeist at a decisive period in the development of European unity. Alongside the flag proposals, the trilingual book (English, German, French) features a written contribution by the poet and writer Marie Rotkopf, who tackles the EU’s neoliberal political cynicism and Germany’s expansion of power with biting irony.

Verena Buttmann
Die Schlantz, die Kured, die Kon

"Hhhh Minne, off you go, she’s coming! The deadline is in 5 minuties. If the Mayonnage hears that I’m only just starting. Hoah my heart is catching fire. Close the curtain, yes."

As the mayonnage approaches, the excitement grows. Without ever taking on a tangible form, her presence in Verena Buttmann's audio piece "Die Schlantz, die Kured, die Kon" (The Slutch, The Khored, The Quee) lies above the scenario. The mayonnage is many things: the object of fear, the last salvation, a state of oppression, the bridge to a remote world or a dreamlike projection.
On her record, the artist Verena Buttmann creates a social cosmos between theatre-like staging and private space. A dialogical poem and a scenic piece of music reveal a narrative that follows a peculiar temporal dimension and linguistic logic. Verena Buttmann takes language to the edge of meaning, where its musical quality unfolds.

The publication contains a 7'' vinyl record, a brochure with the original text in German and the English translation, as well as a download link.

Kyrill Constantinides Tank
Janus Neinus Vielleichtus

Whilst working in a museum bookshop, artist and poet Kyrill Constantinides Tank draws on postcard-sized pieces of paper what he sees or comes to his mind. ”The New Colleague,“ ”How My Boss Sees Me, When I Am Angry,“ or ”Daniel Richter Loses Touch With the Youth“ show scenes of a work routine in the museum or ideas that arise in such a setting. They relate to a life between artistic creation and wage labour. But besides his subjective view, Constantinides Tank also brings the very common to paper: Garfield, Charizard and the Simpsons belong to everybody and have been drawn like this countless times. When there is a patch on the paper or the drawing itself becomes a technical experiment – as in ”Fidget-Spinner Drawing”: apparently the attempt to make a drawing with a fidget spinner – it becomes obvious that the author trained as a painter and constantly deals with the borders and possibilities of painting. By drawing them, Kyrill Constantinides Tank, in a Bavarian anti- bourgeois tradition, overcomes the daemons and banalities of labour, mass media and art history.
Kyrill Constantinides Tank is an artist and poet. He works in a Buchhandlung Walther König branch and is winner of the 26th Open Mike literature competition for poetry. He lives in Munich.

Franco Leidi
Return

The book Franco Leidi: Return is published on the occasion of the retrospective and first exhibition of the artist Franco Leidi in Italy. Born in 1933 in Milan and grown up in Genova, Leidi emigrated to Sweden in the 1970s, where he became an established artist. He never exhibited his work in his country of birth during his lifetime. The work of Franco Leidi, a self- declared communist who was profoundly influenced by his childhood experiences of World War II in fascist Italy, evolves from drawing, print and watercolour into sculpture and installation. While his late works – portraits in watercolour, often combined with collage – offer a complex iconographic reference system, his early production is characterized by multi-layered representations of power and oppression: men, women, furniture and tools are trapped in a hermetic system, in which they struggle against and exert violence upon one another. The erotic fantasies of a male subject, physical exercise and the simple beauty of a dialogue determine the play of these figures and objects; sometimes it is about life and death, sometimes about the banal being together.
Franco Leidi: Return takes the artist’s posthumous homecoming as an opportunity to examine his work through the lens of the present day and show its relevance to the current political and cultural context. Besides numerous black/white and colour images, the publication includes a foreword by Verena Buttmann and texts by Viana Conti, Leslie Johnson and Jörgen Svensson.
