    RE: Manifestos-R-Us, Thursday, 3:00

    See: http://thirdfactory.wordpress.com/2011/09/28/attention-span-2011-vanessa-place/

    Third Factory/Notes to Poetry
    art is autonomous

    “Attention Span 2011” by Vanessa Place

    Riccardo Boglione | RITMO D feeling the blanks | gegen | 2009

    In a work of abstract literature Richard Kostelenatz would surely admire, in Ritmo D. Feeling the Blanks, Riccardo Boglione has stripped away every last bit of text from Giovanni Boccaccio’s contentious 14th-century body of 100 novellas, Decameron. All that remains is the rhythm, spacing and punctuation.

    François Fonteneau | L’Ethique du silence. Wittgenstein et Lacan | Seuil | 1999

    D’un côté, une éthique indicible (Wittgenstein), de l’autre, une éthique du mi-dire (Lacan). L’expérience éthique serait-elle liée à l’expérience de la limite dont le silence ferait partie ?

    Marcel Proust, trans. Mark Treharne | The Guermantes Way | Viking | 2004

    After the relative intimacy of the first two volumes of In Search of Lost Time, The Guermantes Way opens up a vast, dazzling landscape of fashionable Parisian life in the late nineteenth century as the narrator enters the brilliant, shallow world of the literary and aristocratic salons.

    Edgar Allen Poe | Poetry and Tales (The Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym of Nantucket) | Library of America | 1984

    Poe’s Narrative of A. Gordon Pym seems to me excellent art criticism and prototype for rigorous “non-site” investigations.

    Kenneth Goldsmith and Craig Dworkin, eds. | Against Expression | Northwestern | 2011

    Against Expression, the premier anthology of conceptual writing, presents work that is by turns thoughtful, funny, provocative, and disturbing.

    Marjorie Perloff | Unoriginal Genius | Chicago | 2011

    It is a virtue of Marjorie Perloff’s Unoriginal Genius that it leaves nothing settled. Rather, it provokes new questions that help to unsettle modernism and its artistic aftermath, and itself performs an important arrière-garde re-animation of neglected or taken-for-granted avant-gardes.

    JoAnn Wypijewski | Painting by Numbers: Komar and Melamid’s Scientific Guide to Art | California | 1998

    Wypijewki and Nation art critic Arthur Danto explain well the context of Komar and Melamid’s unique project and chart its odd, zigzag path between comedy and seriousness. . . . An im-portant reference point on the map of late-20th-century taste

    Eric Lott | Love and Theft: Blackface Minstrelsy and the American Working Class | Oxford | 1995

    As readers we come to understand for the first time how blackface performance imagined and addressed a national community and we realize the extent to which we still live with this legacy.

    Bruce Fink | The Lacanian Subject | Princeton | 1996

    The Lacanian Subject not only provides an excellent introduction into the fundamental coordinates of Jacques Lacan’s conceptual network; it also proposes original solutions to (or at least clarifications of) some of the crucial dilemmas left open by Lacan’s work.

    Andrea Fraser | Museum Highlights: The Writings of Andrea Fraser | MIT | 2007

    A stunning book—Andrea Fraser turns the art museum inside out, time and again, in her incisive and mercilessly witty deconstructions. A rare combination of committed artistic practice working hand-in-hand with the insights of cultural theory.

    Leo Steinberg | The Sexuality of Christ in Renaissance Art and in Modern Oblivion | Chicago | 1997

    After centuries of repression and censorship, the sexual component in thousands of revered icons of Christ is restored to visibility.

    BLANK
    a novel by Davis Schneiderman

    http://www.jadedibisproductions.com/BLANK.html

    “I received my copy of BLANK yesterday, and began reading it last night in bed. I am accustomed to reading a few pages from a book, then turning out the light as soon as I become drowsy. But BLANK was a different experience: I could not put it down until I had read it from cover to cover. And now it is burned in my memory. I feel certain it is a book I will read again and again.” – H. L. Hix, National Book Award poetry finalist
    ART: orginal art by Susan White

    SOUND: original music by Paul D Miller aka DJ Spooky (LISTEN NOW)
    Davis Schneiderman’s 206-page novel, Blank, contains only compelling chapter titles. The story is – as it always has been – up to the reader. White-on-white pyrographic images are by notable artist Susan White. The fine art edition is shrink-wrapped and enclosed in a wooden box that is fully encased in plaster and can be opened with a pull-tab. Once opened, the box cannot be re-encased. Music will be composed and performed by renowned experimental hip hop musician, Paul D Miller aka DJ Spooky. Learn more about Vanuatu Pacifica Project here.

    “A page turner…Electric.”
    –Alice Notley

    THE VICIOUS RED RELIC, LOVE
    a fabulist memoir by
    Anna Joy Springer

    http://jadedibisproductions.com/VICIOUS.html

    ART: Original art by Teresa Carmody & Maude Place; Rachel Carns, Aaron Cometbus & Cristy C. Road; Paula Cronin, Shelly Jackson, Kristie Fleming, beldAn Sezen, Annie Sprinkle & Beth Stephens (Love Art Lab), Rhani Remedes, Leon Mostovoy, Tara Jane O’Neil, Miriam Klein Stahl, Cristy C. Road & Aaron Cometbus, Anna Joy Springer

    SOUND: Original music by by Tara Jane O’Neil & Rachel Carns & Anna Joy Springer

    “There is only one Anna Joy Springer. Only one. Her words take me from kitten to monster and back again in a way only she can do. I love this book.”
    – Kathleen Hanna, lead singer of Bikini Kill and Le Tigre

    “How to describe the charm, wit, innocence and energy in AJS’s Red Relic? With intelligence and heart she enlarges a little the things a novel is capable How very lucky I am to have read it!”
    – Carole Maso, author of AVA and Break Every Rule
    “My god this book is beautiful. Each moment. A breath in a forest, a breathing beneath the bark of trees. A way to see that has remained shadowed, in shadows, under shadows, such sentence. each sentence a journey”
    –Doug Rice, author of Blood of Mugwump: A Tiresian Tale of Incest and A Good Cuntboy Is Hard To Find
    “A page-turner, fast and muscular, electric and sometimes “repulsive” (cf Rimbaud’s characterization of women’s writing-to-be as “delicate, repulsive, beautiful.”) Through the typography and collaging, you read a whole page incredibly swiftly, almost as if all at once. The handling of the Sumerian/Babylonian mythological material is superb. And you finally never know, as reader, if you are reading “myth” or autobiography.
    – Alice Notley, author of Disobedience and Reason and Other Women

    An Interview With Anna Joy Springer by David Hoenigman

    http://www.wordriot.org/archives/1411

    Anna Joy Springer is a prose writer and visual artist who makes grotesques. That is, she creates hybrid texts combining sacred and profane elements in order to prompt intensely embodied conceptual-emotional experiences in readers. Formerly a singer in the Bay Area bands, Blatz, The Gr’ups, and Cypher in the Snow, Anna Joy has toured the United States and Europe being a wild feminist punk performer, and she has also toured with the all-women spoken word extravaganza, Sister Spit. Author of the illustrated novella THE BIRDWISHER (Birds of Lace) and THE VICIOUS RED RELIC, LOVE (Jaded Ibis, forthcoming); she is currently making FEEDING THE DYING, a graphic novel. She received her MFA in Literary Arts from Brown University in 2002, and she is an Assistant Professor of Literature at University of California, San Diego where she truly loves teaching courses in Experimental Writing, Graphic Texts, and Postmodern Feminist Literatures.

    &NOW releases the second Plonsker Prize book, from our 2010 winner:
    Galerie de Difformité, by Gretchen E. Henderson

    ISBN-10: 0982315635 / ISBN-13: 978-0982315637

    “What a work! . . . The ‘book’ explodes across distributed platforms and media, with a digitally networked existence that simultaneously builds on and destroys the integrity of the print object.”

    —Johanna Drucker, author of The Century of Artists’ Books and The Alphabetic Labyrinth

    “Galerie de Difformité is a cabinet of curiosities of things deformed, disabled, reformed and enabled. . . . A book that combines the metacriticism of Tristram Shandy with the randomness of a complex video game, Henderson has created a unique work that aims at being extraordinary, arcane, and eminently accessible. A book you won’t forget.”

    —Lennard J. Davis, author of Enforcing Normalcy and Bending Over Backwards: Disability, Dismodernism and Other Difficult Positions

    At $15.00 (or, ahem, less on Amazon) this book is practically free. Once you see the lushly designed inside pages and the historical full-color marbled endpapers, you’ll get behind this fuzzy math.
    Did we mention that this book teaches itself. That’s right, you don’t even have to show up to class. Take a personal day, while your students learn like professionals.
    Need an exam or review copy—? Mention it on your blog?
    Write andnow@lakeforest.edu for a comp. Who loves ya, baby?

    Galerie de Difformité, by Gretchen E. Henderson
