Frans Jacobi launching Aesthetics of Resistance
On 1 November 2018 Frans Jacobi launched his book Aesthetic of Resistance at SixtyEight Art Institute, home of RSS Press, reading from the book a non-linear selection of his performance texts, forming their own, fresh narrative specifically for the context.
The texts compiled in the book include performance scripts and commentaries, in addition to an extended glossary of terms that investigate the topics of these performances. Together they expand on contemporary forms of demonstration culture and political activism as performativity.
Liv Schulman at Alt_Cph 2018: Over-Existing
RSS Press was launched for its local Copenhagen public through the participation of Liv Schulman on 26 and 27 May in this year’s Alt_Cph alternative art fair, and the simultaneous publication of her book Infinite Bet. Liv Schulman gave the lecture performance Formal Economy, which builds on themes she addresses both in The Empathy (her contribution to the Cut the Gap seminar at SMK the National Gallery of Denmark in November 2017) and the newly published Infinite Bet.
An extract from the performance:
Infinite Bet was launched at Alt_Cph at a Release and Book Launch Party on Sunday 27 May, and is currently available from our online shop and our bookstore at SixtyEight Art Institute.
