DIAPHANES Issue 3
Time Probe Zero Synthesis
Where is the present? How is the past changing? What will become of the future? In the third issue of DIAPHANES MAGAZINE, authors, artists, and discursives try out their respective time probes in images, voices, texts, and assemblages.
With Things in a Room DIAPHANES presents the rarely seen photographic work of Manuel Franquelo, who shows himself to be an artist of pioneering radicalism in an in-depth interview. In After This Comes That Before That Comes This Wolfgang PlÃ¶ger works with the results of Google searches and Penelope Umbrico with the structures of the Flickr platform. Dietmar Dathâs text âYour Sprache Never Wasâ tells of the loss of faith in language, and MaÃ«l Renouard speaks of the âpsychopathology of digital life,â while Stephen Barber pursues the prophetic force of J.G. Ballardâs last draft novel World versus America. Dieter Mersch pleads for a critique of âAlgorithmic Reasonâ in the face of an all-embracing algorithmization of life, and Marcus Quent, in his essay, seeks a way out of the âabsolute presentâ following the loss of âbelief in the world.â
The magazine also includes Corporate Love, paintings by Gilles Rotzetter, and Substation, a joint installation by Lucy McKenzie, Markus Proschek & Philip Topolovac, along with poems by Luc Meresma and the legendary butoh dancer Ko Murobushi, and an essay by Elena Vogman on âAndrei Belyâs Rhythmic Gestureââand distributed throughout the issue are Jso Maederâs images with time codes and several texts by Alexander Kluge.
NO W HERE, the double page in the middle of DIAPHANES, shows Inseparable Angels, by Esther Shalev-Gerz, and with Futur Pluperfect Christine Tauber opens a new rubric that visits the relics of visions of the future in the image spaces of the past.
The Questionnaire is compiled this time by performance artist Nicole Bachmann; Friederike MayrÃ¶cker has sent in a text for I Remember, while The Artful Flaneur visits a street in Sao Paulo; and as usual youâll find Barbara Bastingâs Facebook column, the rubrics Listmania, The Transversal Shelf, Dear Paul, and much more.
