Published on the occasion of Carla Filipe’s show da cauda à cabeça (from tail to head), this monograph, the first ever dedicated to the artist, focuses on the project presented at Museu Coleção Berardo, with an essay by the curator Pedro Lapa, and a comprehensive documentation of the show. It also refers to a number of previous projects selected or especially created by Carla Filipe. The book features additional texts by Vít Havránek and Pedro G. Romero, and an interview with Stephan Dillemuth, contextualize both the artist’s work and this project in particular, which summarises to some extent the artist’s investigation into Portuguese railroads. The publication was conceptualised by Carla Filipe in close collaboration with Gonçalo Sena, who also designed it.

Presentation of Anabases and conversation between
Eric Baudelaire and two of the contributors of the book, Morad Montazami and Pierre Zaoui. Conceived in the aftermath of a series of projects by Baudelaire, all dealing with the particular form of thought process and time structure of the “anabasis,” the book gathers in-depth essays by Homay King, Jean-Pierre Rehm and Pierre Zaoui, and calls the figures of Michelangelo Antonioni, Masao Adachi and Xenophon. This “ocean crossing”—as Montazami introduces the book—may sound like holidays, or crisis, depending on your mood.

“This book is not for reading but for wandering. Its lines do not roll out continuously but superimpose each other to infinity, creating not a compendium of knowledge but a web of prescience. It does not follow a logical framework but unfurls a grid with multiple entries. It does not assert a set subject or conclusive postulate. At most it invites us to probe the recesses of a mind in motion, and steeps us in the driving material that brings it to life. It reflects the works it exhibits, the documents it discloses and the commentary it gener- ates: it aspires to ubiquity. Anabasis, the very real linking thread that stitches it together, serves not just as an archaeological enigma, but also as an allegorical force. The main author of this ocean crossing, Eric Baudelaire, is both a collector of vestiges and a sketcher of wandering lines who has surrounded himself with other meticulous voices (Pierre Zaoui, Homay King, Jean-Pierre Rehm), fellow-travellers in this library secret. Readers will be able to enjoy the grad- ual unfolding of the story of war and politics whose underlying intellectual and poetic adventure this book enables us to recall—that of its repetitions, ramifications and hybridisations: the story of Anabasis after Anabasis (or from Xenophon’s Anabasis to that of Paul Celan by way of Alain Badiou’s), from an ancient narrative to its modern reappropriation.” (Morad Montazami)

Der Standpunkt der Aufnahme — Point of View
The Psychopathologies of  Cognitive Capitalism: Part Two
The ongoing program “Der Standpunkt der Aufnahme — Point of View”, launched at the cinema Arsenal in Berlin in 2010, is dedicated to the diversity with which artists and activists work politically with film and video today. The book by the same title, edited by Tobias Hering, is a direct outcome of the program. It aims to extend and perpetuate a debate whose urgency, while bearing on changing conditions and shifts in media agency, has never lost momentum. The contributions represent a variety of aesthetic and intellectual styles as well as different approaches to the questions at stake.

The Psychopathologies of Cognitive Capitalism: Part Two is the second volume in a series which maps out the complex terrain of cognitive capitalism as an ontogeny in which its earlier phase has transitioned into a later phase that we are now beginning to experience. This volume collects together papers from a conference of the same name held at the Institute of Cultural Inquiry, Berlin, in the spring of 2013

The first part of the book delineates the recent emergence of characteristic psychopathologies of cognitive capitalism, which have resulted from the unique concatenation of social-political-psychological-economic relations that have produced distinct stresses and forms of derangement upon the factory of the brain. This leads to the second stream, referred to as “the cognitive turn” in cognitive capitalism. For example, as a result of the necessity for an efficient brain-mind to labor in the advanced and constantly accelerating conditions of the knowledge economy highly sophisticated and nuanced forms of attention have become compulsory well beyond what was considered essential in the older regimes of the modern. As such new dispositifs of normalization and governmentalization have arisen to, on the one hand, diffuse the attention necessary for multi-tasking, and on the other, to enhance the production of a hyper-attention. It is upon these and other similar conditions that this book concentrates. It calls for the identification of the causative factors of these psychopathologies as well as attempting to invent the counter conditions with which to thwart their emergence.

This book is the beginning of an antidiscursive discourse with which to create an emancipatory materialism produced not only in the world but in the brain as well.

As part of her ongoing research and residency at Archive, Caitlin Berrigan invites Randa Mirza to discuss her photographic series, Beirutopia. The two artists share a commitment to creating work around questions of art and feminism within public space, geopolitics, fictions, and speculative futures.
Since the end of the Lebanese civil war in 1990, Beirut has been striving to regain its glamor and splendor, with the goal of reconstructing the myth of a city commonly referred to as the Paris of the Middle East. Beirutopia is a portrait of Beirut’s urban future through speculated representations. It aims to raise questions about the devenir (becoming) of Beirut, and the projected future of the city.

Randa Mirza is an artist who seeks to transgress the normalization of social practices and to subvert the status quo. In the Lebanese context of a society under re(construction), her practice tends to give a voice to what is not represented.  

Caitlin Berrigan works as an artist across video,
performance, photography, sculpture, text and participatory public interventions to engage with the intimate social dimensions of power and politics.

The Psychopathologies of Cognitive Capitalism:
The Cognitive Turn

Organized by Mark Fisher
and Warren Neidich

We are currently transitioning from an economic system dominated by artisanal and industrial production to one ruled by information with its emphasis on communication, affect and cognition. Not without controversy, the term cognitive capitalism has been coined to describe these new sets of conditions. This symposium continued to pose many of the same questions asked in Part 1, held in Los Angeles in collaboration with California Institute of the Arts and Art Center College of Design, and Part 2, hosted by the ICI-Berlin but with special emphasis on what has been referred to as its ‘cognitive turn’.

Participants: Amanda Beech, Franco “Bifo” Berardi,
Bronac Ferran, Mark Fisher, Matthew Fuller, Scott
Lash, Lambros Malafouris, Warren Neidich, Dimitris
Papadopoulos, Luciana Parisi, Alexei Penzin, Andrea
Phillips, John Protevi, Kerstin Stakemeier, Steven
