ongoing Set Margins' publications – personal readings @ the table

‘I can see that’
The extensive research ‘Can you feel it?’ dove into the reality of tactility in printed matter by means of various authors exploring the reality of the concept and artist practices exploring the material. The book became a rather classic source of reference  and debate within scenes of  publishing and printmaking. The podcast set-up at VOLUMES allows for a more close engagement with the project.

3 - 5pm Zhaoyuefan – a chinese name workshop

A Chinese name workshop is zhaoyuefan’s ongoing practice since 2020. Based on the difficulty of pronouncing and remembering Chinese names most non-Chinese speakers have, which the artist observed a lot in her daily life,  the workshop is aimed to provide its participants with a glimpse of Chinese language and Chinese naming culture in an interactive way. During Volumes 22, the workshop will take place in the zentralwäscherei Café at a table stand in the form of an individual session. Each session (per person) is about 10-15 minutes long, in which the participant will create their own name in Chinese using the Chinese characters they chose corresponding to the pronunciation of their original names. Alongside the name workshop, the stand will also offer drinks with anecdotes, small talks about big issues, fortune telling, and a little zine about Chinese naming rules for the visitors to take and read.

About zhaoyuefan
zhaoyuefan was born in Wuhan, China and grew up in Beijing, China. She has been working and living in Germany and Switzerland since 2016.
zhaoyuefan's artistic practice revolves around her experience of living as a legal alien in foreign countries. Through video, installation, performance, and writing/storytelling, she uses lightness to touch on themes related to shaping of identity and collective memories. Often starting with collecting images, texts and objects from daily life situations, her works are a series of translations, transformations and transpositions based on the transcultural context.

Artist renames herself with 16 Chinese names which all have the same pronunciation as her real name while varying in written form and meanings.

ongoing Stéphanie Gygax - Friction Friction

Stéphanie Gygax is a Swiss artist, photographer and educator based in Zurich. Her work spans from photography, publishing, installation, sculpture to moving image. By looking into industrial objects, natural materials or fragments of the everyday life that she repeatedly assembles into new constellations, Stéphanie Gygax shifts their identity and reimagines their active presence in our lives.

For VOLUMES, she produced large prints associated with a zine that explores the various connections between the tire and the drift. Through a twilight remix of images borrowed from engineering, astronomy or agronomy videos and publications, she weaves a cosmic narrative around the shape and matter of the tire, its interaction with gravity and its effect on the Earth and our bodies.

ongoing A Living, Breathing Manifesto for Publishing the HumDrum Way By HumDrum Press

HumDrum Press presents "A Living, Breathing Manifesto for Publishing the HumDrum Way". A constant-work-in-progress textual manifesto which has formed the basis for the Press’ ongoing research process into methods of publishing that hold the potential to reach and attract broader reader-and-writer-ships, and that understand publishing as a “communal” and “commons” activity.

The manifesto began as a transparent, shareable exploration of the internal working methods and developing publishing practice of HumDrum Press, before then circulating among friends, colleagues, fellow publishers, peers, and strangers, all of whom were invited to edit, comment, remove, add to, and grow the manifesto into a textual companion that could be useful, and usable for as many as possible.

Through this next exhibited iteration of the manifesto, the wish is to activate the text as a basis to encourage public consideration, conversation, exchange, (dis)agreements, and future thinking towards processes of publishing.
All who wish to, are welcomed to interact with the current text in any way they desire over the course of the VOLUMES weekend. The results of installation will be uploaded daily to a “master” digital version, which, at the end of the exhibition will act as Snapshot One of the Living, Breathing Manifesto for Publishing the HumDrum Way and circulated among all those who contributed, as well as being made freely and publicly available online.

1 - 3pm Lina Ehrentraut – Workshop

Wir machen jeder und jedem ein Heft – vom falzen zum binden zum zeichnen zum schreiben. Ich liebe ja Hefte, weil die so unkompliziert einen kleinen Rahmen bieten, eine Idee oder Gefühl einzufassen.
Gerne ein-zwei-drei Zeitschriften und Schere und Kleber mitbringen (wenn du gerne bastelst) und deine Lieblingsstifte schaden auch nie. Falls du zufällig letztens ein Gedicht geschrieben hast – auch toll.

3.30 – 5.30pm Boni Joi – poetry workshop

This poetry/bookbinding workshop is in two parts. First, participants will learn how to make a small booklet using a 3 hole saddle stitch bookbinding. They can bring their own paper if they have something in mind or paper will be provided. In part two we will generate writing using experimental techniques such as incorporating specific words into poems, using model poems as inspiration, or practicing different poetic forms. Then we will use collaging methods to glue, stitch, stamp, or write text into the finished booklets. At the end of the workshop, participants can choose to read their finished pieces.

3 - 5pm Engy Mohsen & Gabriel Hensche – how to love in many ways

Starting from the claim that one can intentionally perform falling in love (and subsequently fall out of love), How to Love Many in Many Ways is a set of exercises that playfully invite you to enact various rituals with many options of potential players. In this case, _____ can be one of three players: Yourself, Other/s, and Other Other/s. Every question can start by loving and caring for Yourself as a core nucleus for the process of relating. Moving on, you experience connecting with the Other/s in ways that you may or may not have attempted before. And eventually you can push further and extend this awareness to become more attentive to different bodies and Other Other/s around you. How to Love Many in Many Waysis largely based on games and exercises already familiar since childhood. Yet it tries to make your experience strange and unfamiliar, and to weird the ways you interact with Yourself, Other/s, and Other Other/s. Love here is thought of as a wide spectrum of emotions that allow us to relate to ourselves, everyone, everything, and anything. These can include, and are not limited to, empathy, humor, embodiment, affection, annoyance, fondness, attachment, absurdity, attraction, desire, yearning, intimacy, patience, and reverence.
