Published on the occasion of Carla Filipe’s exhibition 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 carefully selected or especially created by Carla Filipe. 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 book was conceptualised by Carla Filipe in close collaboration with Gonçalo Sena, who also designed it.
The work of Carla Filipe is one of the most significant projects to emerge in Portugal towards the end of last decade. She undertakes an archaeology of the lifestyles and the attendant questions raised during the course of modernity: certain forms linked to expectations of a new world, one whose realisations proved to be extremely diverse. Many of her works expose an autobiographic vein; some deal with episodes in micro-narratives, others with history itself. Constituting all of Carla Filipe’s works is a narrative structure whose mediums are, recurrently, objects, drawing, words and installation.

Der Standpunkt der  Aufnahme — Point of View
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.

Clemens von Wedemeyer Film material n°4: The Cast
This book was published on the occasion of Clemens von Wedemeyer solo show
at MAXXI in Rome. A film exhibition that discusses memory, the mechanisms
of cinematographic fiction and the themes of contemporaneity. Props and extras referencing the giants of the Rome film industry; the relationship between statue and actor, but also between these two and the spectator’s gaze; the history of film and its hidden aspects; the political struggles of the cultural sector workers of yesterday and today; the Greek myth of rebirth after destruction — these are the themes of The Cast. The show is composed of three new works conceived for the museum (
Afterimage; The Beginning: Living Figures Dying and Procession) and an installation composed of diverse forms and sculptures (Remains: The Myth of Deucalion and Pyrrha). The title The Cast alludes to diverse meanings including the production of sculptures (the casting of forms), the process of selecting actors (casting) and the gesture of throwing (casting a stone). The exhibition is born out of the research conducted by von Wedemeyer over the last year spent in Rome and deals with a number of its symbolic, historic and contemporary sites such as the Cinecittà Studios and the Teatro Valle Occupato.

Alex Martinis Roe
A story from Circolo
della Rosa
Exhibition organized
by Fiona Geuss

Opening on Friday, 21 February Alex Martinis Roe will show her new film A story from Circolo della Rosa, and a sculpture in Archive Kabinett front window, both of which continue her work on feminist genealogies. The film is narrated by the artist’s voice and is addressed to a close colleague in the form of a letter, telling a story about two women. The film weaves together fragments from her recent oral history research with members of Libreria delle donne [Milan Women’s Bookstore Collective] and her experiences of their collective activities, as well as her exploration of related spaces, archives and texts.

On the occasion of the show Alex Martinis Roe selected a series of books from both her personal library and the Milan Women’s Bookstore. The collection takes the form of an open access reference library at Archive Kabinett inviting users for individual or collective reading, serving as site for sharing resources and ways of thinking. Excerpts from this collection will also be made available on

This show is organized by Fiona Geuss and will be on display from February 22 through March 22, 2014,
open Wednesday to Saturday from 2pm – 6pm.

REcent Collaborations
Constellations of One and Many
24.01.2014 — 22.03.2014

Falke Pisano
in collaboration
with Archive Books

Curated by Emanuele Guidi

ar/ge kunst hosted the first Italian solo show by Falke Pisano in collaboration with Paolo Caffoni (Archive Books). Pisano’s artistic practice focuses on the relationship between opposing and complementary poles such as language and body.
Archive Books has been developing editorial research on the notions of the ‘visible’ and the cinematic image, with all their socio-political implications, since 2009.
The outcome of this artist-publisher collaboration at ar/ge kunst is an investigation entitled Constellations of One and Many. It focuses on the relationships of power and affect that exist between subject and collectivity. It takes its cues from a series of sources and case studies in the fields of literature, philosophy and political science.
