From Miss Read online program 📖 👻 🎧

Book presentation by Iwalewabooks
"In defense of the sonic smear: hauntologic sounds"
The dimension of sound, especially recorded sound, as one of the ghost’s immaterial forms was central for our work with the concept of hauntology.  Central to the concept of sonic hauntology is the recording with its “uncanniness,” “intrinsically ‘hauntological’ dimension” and “spectral undercurrent.” The record-as-ghost promises a “kind of immortality, the possibility that our voices would be listened to by ‘the not yet born.’” “Like a spectre, a recorded musician is at once present and absent,” a “phonographic revenant.”
The speakers look at the genre of music in relation to hauntology through conversations about the bygone but reactivated medium of the cassette as well as in a reflection on the phenomenon of spectres and sprectrals in music. Here, the ghosts choose the medium of music to appear, and technology enhances their presence.

O Menelick 2º Ato as part of MISS READ Online Program 2021
------->>>>

O Menelick 2º Ato (Sao Paulo, Brazil, 2010) is an independent platform that makes Afro-Brazilian culture visible. Founded and directed by journalist and photographer Nabor Jr, it is the rebirth of the short-lived, first-ever black journal in Brazil, titled Menelick, launched by a poet in 1915. Although less than half of the population self-identify as white and most Brazilians are of mixed ancestry, people of colour have almost no presence in Brazilian media. The only journal for black culture in Brazil, O Menelick Act 2 gives Afro-Brazilian thinkers and artists a space to share their perspectives and project the concerns and creativity of the contemporary black community in Brazil. It is an avant-garde, non-profit, quarterly magazine published online and in print, distributed free through libraries and cultural events as well as in conflict areas of São Paulo. With its coverage of music, theatre, cinema, dance, fine arts, photography, fashion, literature, poetry and popular urban forms such as clowning and hip-hop, it introduces many individuals and collectives to a wider public.

Excerpts from the MISS READ Online Program 2021

-------
"The Journal Zamân"
by Zamân Books & Curating
Crossing through West Asia and the Mediterranean from Africa to Turkey, up until Iran and India, Zamân Books & Curating primary goal is the circulation of new cosmopolitan knowledge about art and images – driven by the efforts to shape the field of Southern modernities. Such new mappings of art histories develop through monograph and collective exhibitions, the research journal Zamân, textes, images & documents, and different kinds of publication (monographs, artists books, thematic and collective books), as well as reediting – or translanting – to-be-rediscovered and rare material.
Our role is generally to assist artists (and artists estates) with their exhibition and/or publication projects, including coproduction with public and private institutions, art centres, cultural institutes…
Zamân Books & Curating engages actively with different communities of cultural producers, researchers, curators, translators, archivists, writers and other narrators worldwide, sharing the same desire : to revive and celebrate their transcultural artistic heritages.

The Politics of Art Book Fairs

Can we decolonize the space of independent publishing? Art book fairs today are not only a venue for representing a separate, prior publishing scene, they are also a central forum for constituting and nurturing a community around publishing as artistic practice. A global phenomenon, these communities take the form of agile, adaptable, and wide-ranging networks.
This round table gathers some of the most interesting actors in the field in order to have a vibrant dialogue. How are space and narratives created, and who is taking a risk? Core themes to be discussed are: who is selected as exhibitor and who isn´t, gift economies, and the implicit and explicit politics of Art Book Fairs.

With: Sunny Iyer (Printed Matter Book Fairs), Qing Zhou (Shanghai Art Book Fair), Hedieh Ahmadi (Bazar Art Book Fair), Dan Mitchell (ASP London), Tokyo Art Book Fair (tbc), Noora Al Mualla (Sharjah Art Book Fair), Leon Muñoz Santini (rrreplica, Mexico City), JohannesWilli (I Never Read, Basel)
Moderated by Pascale Obolo (African Art Book Fair) and Michalis Pichler (MISS READ)

imagi-nation nwar – a PASS broadcast from Paris, 5-9 May 2021

Lavoir Moderne Parisien (35 rue Leon, Goutte d’or)

From 2pm daily. Listen at panafricanspacestation.org.za

Presented by Chimurenga with: Blaise N’Djehoya; Marie-Julie Chalu; DY Ngoy; Yebga Likoba; Cheikh Tidiane Fall; Fabienne et Véronique Kanor; Hamedine Kane; Pascale Obolo; Elom 20ce; Brice Ahounou; Wasis Diop; Roger Raspail; Julius-Amedee Laou; Jean-Jacques Dufayet; Mylène Mauricrace; Maboula Soumahoro; Elsie Haas; Amandine Nana; Franck Biyong; Hemley Boum; Christian Nyampeta; Christelle Oyiri; Célia Potiron; Anna Tjé; Annouchka de Andrade; Tommie McKenzie; R22 tout-monde and many more.

——-

From 5-9 May 2021, Chimurenga’s Pan African Space Station (PASS) will land at Lavoir Moderne Parisien in Goutte d’or, Paris, to imagine, re-examine and re-circulate sonic archives of black radicalism in the francophone world. This session will dig into the “soundtrack” (bande-son), an underlying container of information and ideas that seldom gets explored on own terms.

We depart from cinematic practice, specifically films/filmmakers (Julius-Amedee Laou, Elsie Haas, Med Hondo, Kanor sisters, Sarah Maldoror, etc) represented in the printed archive we recently installed in Centre Pompidou, and expand the soundtrack beyond the screen to other areas of knowledge production: the street, the club, recording studios, kongossa, live performances, noise, even the magazine page.

We imagine a live in-studio soundtrack that responds to and expands silent footage from the 2nd Congress of Black Writers and Artists in Rome 1959 – an event charged by the-then process of decolonisation and the unwelcome presence of younger, radical thinkers such as Fanon, Beti, Glissant, Beville and more. We follow cues from Fabienne and Véronique Kanor’s “La noiraude” and explore zouk as aesthetics of black transnationalism – a geography of unauthorised pleasure throughout the 1980s. We listen to Sarah Maldoror’s records collection and her use of music on film.

In Julius-Amedee Laou’s “Solitaire a micro ouvert”, the brother of a man killed in a racist murder in Paris of the 1980s takes over of a black radio station to address the “community”. In “La Vieille Quimboiseuse et le majordome” he highlights the dialectic between the seen and the heard. We listen to the oral history of “La coordination des femmes noires” that writer Gerty Dambury continually produces; or Gerard Lockel’s development of gro ka moden as decolonial praxis; or the Paris-based afro/astrosonic network documented in the music Jo Maka, Ramadolf, Cheikh Tidiane Fall, Yebga Likoba and more, which not only connects directly to Maldoror’s film “Un dessert pour Constance” but also puts sound to the immigrant struggles of the post-May 68 era. And brings us to the ongoing gentrification and structural violence in Goutte d’or.

We consider Frank Biyong’s retelling of the war of decolonisation in Cameroun in his album “Ibolo Ini”, and more broadly his use of music as site of memorialising; and explore black ecologies through sound.

We present “Act 2” of Christian Nyampeta’s acclaimed radio-play “The Africans”.

And live performances, talks, screenings, DJ sets. And more.

Lets listen together. Daily programme at: panafricanspacestation.org.za

Following on from the previous fairs, we are hosting ASP6 The Sixth

ASP6 will host 100+ UK and international independent artist self-publishers for the one-day fair. The fair will feature artist self-publishers only, and will continue to avoid the restrictions and market dominance of much of contemporary arts culture.

ASP 6 will be taking place 100% online due to the current situation; large indoor gatherings such as the ASP Fair have obvious and unwelcome consequences.

On Saturday the 26th September we will be hosting a day of readings & performance and a live stream gig with very special guests T.B.A.

The fair itself will take place on the Sunday the 27th of September 2 - 7pm

We will shortly begin announcing the artist self-publishers taking part in this year's fair.

With the generous help of the Art Council England, ASP seeks to celebrate and promote artist self-publishers and their work.

In addition to those selected by ASP, 15 places will be allocated via open submission

COVID-19 Update:

Dear Miss Read community,

We hope you are all fine. As you probably know the Corona epidemic has reached Europe and the Rest of the world a few weeks ago.

The German government forbade public gatherings that bring together more than 50 people. It’s likely that the situation will get worse in the near future and the government won’t allow any public gathering before the epidemic progression is reversed.
