    American author Kathy Acker was one of the most influential writers of the 20th century. Working through an experimental and avant-garde tradition, she wrote numerous novels, essays, poems, and novellas from the early 1970s to the late 1990s. As a postmodernist, plagiarist, and post-punk feminist, she continues to inspire generations of writers, philosophers, and artists. The book GET RID OF MEANING, edited by Anja Casser and Matias Viegener, is the first comprehensive publication on Acker’s work from an artistic and literary perspective. It includes previously unpublished material from Acker’s personal archive and other collections. The publication is the compilation of a multipart research project including an exhibition and a symposium at Badischer Kunstverein in Karlsruhe

    Centered in a 1:1 format on Acker’s notebooks for Blood and Guts in High SchoolGET RID OF MEANING allows readers and researchers to immerse themselves in a conversation between Kathy Acker’s work and her readers, commentators, and heirs

    Terre Thaemlitz writings from between 1996 and 2015. The overall theme uniting the texts is a defense of pessimism and a critical rejection of the incessant optimism lurking at the core of virtually all media – even in the ‘critical fields’ themselves, where it reflects our conformity to those First World humanist and capitalist practices we wish to critique. Terre Thaemlitz explain why the texts sometimes still fraudulently use positive terminology, and break the linearity of the reading process – thus incorporating the theme of ‘nuisance’ throughout the book

    “The United States has long congratulated itself on being the world’s melting pot, but during a long, hot summer in coastal North Carolina, three young people will put that theory to the test. Our protagonist is Tillmann, a German vacationing in the States and corresponding with both his ex-girlfriend about the genesis of techno and an African American colleague about their research into the evolution of blues music. Over the course of the season, the trio’s discussions range from Mariah Carey to Ronald Reagan, from the Black Power movement to the legacy of Nazi Germany. And as a hurricane churns across the Atlantic, their exploration of how ethnicity, race, and gender are defined—particularly for America’s African and Jewish diasporas—will culminate in revelations about their own ethnic identities. Through the eyes of our three narrators, readers will explore the ideas of ethnicity and multiculturalism in our world, illustrated by humorous and poignant anecdotes woven into a single compelling narrative. Thomas Meinecke’s groundbreaking writing style is on full display here, as the writer-DJ has crafted this insightful novel with the same uncanny skill with which jazz and blues musicians create their improvisational styles”

    “Tillmans’ photographic explorations of human connection and tangibility in dialogue with our new virtual present: The observation of people—their bodies, movements, relation to surroundings—lies at the core of the diverse oeuvre that German photographer Wolfgang Tillmans (born 1968) has amassed over the past three decades. Today, these haptic relations and interactions are undergoing massive shifts in light of the COVID-19 pandemic and technological change, as the necessity of social distancing and the migration of everyday life into virtual space transforms how we interact with one another. Wolfgang Tillmans: Sound Is Liquid reflects on the photographer’s oeuvre against the backdrop of these societal developments. Accompanying an exhibition at the Museum Moderner Kunst Stiftung Ludwig (MUMOK) in Vienna, Austria, this catalog features a wide selection of Tillmans’ work from his early photographs produced in the pop-culture milieu of the 1990s to his acclaimed photographic abstractions, his high-resolution images of the globalized and digitalized reality of the early 21st century, and photos taken shortly before and during the coronavirus pandemic.”
