Description

The second edition of VOLUMES – Independent Art Publishing Fair – returned on Friday 27th and Saturday 28th of November at «Kunstraum Walcheturm» in Zürich. The fair presented a fine selection of local and international artists and art books, zines and magazines. This hybrid event also featured a range of performances, exhibitions, screenings, readings and work-shops. After a successful first edition in November 2014 at the now defunct off-space Perla - Mode, VOLUMES took place at «Kunstraum Walcheturm», an independent art space in the heart of Zürich that opened its doors to the only fair of its kind in the city.

VOLUMES 2015 featured a unique exhibition entitled «FOCVS ON ITALY», curated by that year’s special guest BOLO PAPER, who presented a selection of current independent publications from the buzzing Italian scene. Visitors also got a chance to discover publishers and artists from Switzerland, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Greece, Spain and England, who showcased their production in person. The open call international exhibition acted as a sort of snapshot of an even more global production.

7pm - 10pm Performance by Hospiz der Faulheit

Leben statt Arbeit - Ekstase statt Disziplin - Umarmung statt Distanz.

Wir suchen aus der kollektiven Mitte ein Schreiben gegen die Einsamkeit der Vereinzelung in der Erwerbsarbeit. Dazu begeben wir uns aus der kalten Arbeitsknastzelle in das einladende Kabinett, das rettende Hospiz. Wir gliedern uns nicht in das politische Spektrum ein, sondern schaffen in unserer Praxis selbst einen Zwischenraum des Politischen. Wir wollen gegen ein lineares Verständnis von Rezeption eine Kartographie des kollektiven Begehrens und Wahnsinns erstellen. Wir finden den Rausch des Gemeinsamen in der Schreibbewegung, damit alles was darin Platz nimmt, das Entstehen neuer Ströme fördert. In dieser Praxis wird deutlich, was Schreiben eigentlich sein sollte: Leben statt Arbeit, Ekstase statt Disziplin, Umarmung statt Distanz.
