One Year at Ludlow 38
Clara Meister (Ed.)
Each year, New York’s Ludlow 38 exhibition space hosts the MINI/Goethe-Institut Curatorial Residency, highlighting the work of an emerging German curator. This publication gives an overview of the 2012 resident, Clara Meister. Meister’s program focused on different concepts of translation; she brought together an interdisciplinary exhibition program based on the assumption that artistic ideas can be translated into disparate forms and can take on varying modes of expres- sion. Meister organized four solo exhibitions with Natalie Czech, Bo Christian Larsson, Saâdane Afif, and Maria Loboda, a collaborative project called A Dog Republic, and several small poster publications which constitute the individual chapters of the book. Writers, artists, and thinkers were invited to contribute playful essays that were either a source of inspiration for the exhibition or linked to its ideas.

Timewave zero, then what?
Fabian Marti & Cristina Ricupero (Eds.)
The doomsday phenomenon of “2012” refers to eschatological beliefs predicting transformative events on December 21, 2012. By now, not only spiritual seekers have the conviction that something has to change. Still, there are different interpretations of the meaning of that specific date. Beyond the lunatic fringe views regarding the end of the world, a more constructive reading of the phenom- enon is found in New Age circles, claiming that 2012 might be the beginning of a higher consciousness in humanity upon the realization that, in fact, Western systems have not brought mass prosperity and fulfillment as once imagined. Texts by Gary Lachman and Ana Teixeira Pinto.
