“Looking back at you to see if you are looking back at me” (2021)
28 mins 12 secs
A,D,E,G,M,P,V (Araiz Mesanza, Daniela Müller, Eva Funk, Gabrielle Paré, Maria Gordana Belić, Per Westerlund and Vika Adutova) go on a virtual dérive through gathered sounds, images and games. A multilayered collage made through Google Docs and OBS, where Archipelagic thinking meets Office Tools. It can be seen as an extension of their artistic contribution “looking back at you to see if you are looking back at me” to the publication, “Don’t rest, narrate”, but it also shifts the focus from inside the book to the hands holding it. The video work “looking back at you to see if you are looking back at me” lets A,D,E,G,M,P,V circle the content of the book while welcoming a new beginning.

Don’t rest, narrate - A book about art, publishing and collaboration is both a resource and an art object. Join its contributors for playful and illuminating exchange in celebration of its launch alongside Printed Matter’s Virtual Art Book Fair 2021.
There is a long history of artists using publishing as a site for collectivisation. The publication Don’t Rest, narrate looks at this history and brings new artwork, text and experiments together with inspiring texts on publishing, collaboration, licensing and archiving.
This book - this object - is intended as stimulant for further inquiry.
It is an unusual object – non-linear, three-sectioned. In this unique form it renders visible, tactile, the performative dimension of our relationships with books.
Edited by PRAKSIS founders Nicholas John Jones and Rachel Withers, Don’t rest, narrate has been developed in dialogue with, and features contributions from; Vika Adutova, Maria Gordana Belić, Eva Funk, Araiz Mesanza, Daniela Müller, Iz Öztat, Gabrielle Paré and Per Westerlund. Also featured are writings and ideas from Guttorm Guttormsgaard, Hannah Hiaasen, özgür k, Maria Lind, Martin Berner Mathiesen, Ellef Prestsæter and Eva Weinmayr. The design was developed with Eller med a. It is published by Torpedo Press. A big thanks to Kulturrådet and Stiftelsen Fritt Ord for supporting production.
Don’t rest, narrate evolved from research carried out during PRAKSIS’s seventh residency, For a rainy day – Publishing as a site of collectivisation, held in Autumn 2017 in collaboration with the publisher Torpedo and designers Eller med a.

I am excited to be part of the project Nachsendeauftrag / Redirection Berlin.
It is a public art project that actively examines the concept of public space – against the backdrop of an ongoing pandemic that alters our perception of public and private spheres, while challenging our use thereof.

Don't rest, narrate
Historically, publishing has been an essential platform for artists to disseminate their works, concepts and aims. It is also – as Norwegian artist Guttorm Guttormsgaard powerfully argued – a paradigmatic model for any form of collective, distributed, discursive production. The publication Don’t rest, narrate addresses the interrelationship of art, publishing and collectivity. It was evolved from research carried out during PRAKSIS’s seventh residency, For a rainy day – Publishing as a site of collectivisation, held in autumn 2017 in collaboration with the publisher Torpedo and designers Eller med a.
Don’t rest, narrate constitutes both a resource and an art object. Containing commissioned artworks and new texts, brief studies of key experiments in art and radical publishing, reprints of texts on subjects ranging from collective production to licensing and archiving and a bibliography giving pointers for further reading, the book is designed to inform and to stimulate further discussion and study. Its unusual, non-linear three-section format renders visible and tangible the performative dimension of our interactions with books. Edited by PRAKSIS founders Nicholas John Jones and Rachel Withers, it features contributions from residents Vika Adutova, Maria Gordana Belić, Eva Funk, Araiz Mesanza, Daniela Müller, Iz Öztat, Gabrielle Paré, and Per Westerlund, as well as Guttorm Guttormsgaard, Hannah Hiaasen, özgür k, Maria Lind, Martin Berner Mathiesen, Ellef Prestsæter, and Eva Weinmayr. It is designed with Eller med a.

„A Novel“ – Lets read together
3pm – 9pm
@ Apartment Project
To write a novel is seen as a monumental undertaking to accomplish in one’s lifetime. None of us has written a novel before and to take on this task together, forming a temporary writing society means something new to all of us. Believing in realising a novel in a timeframe of one month introduces already a form of possible failure. Embracing this defeat we will work ’til the end.
