Annika Larsson’s project The Discourse of the Drinkers is exploring the bar as a social and political space. It borrows its title from a chapter in François Rabelais’s 16th Century comic novels on The Life of Gargantua and of Pantagruel. Interested in acts of transgression (identities and borders), the project sets out to explore the political and social potential of the body, its capacity of overturning our habitual course and to change the order of things (through intoxication, poetry, music, movement, performance and laughter).
Gestalten is a publisher and creative agency mostly known for their 600 books on art, architecture, design, photography and typography. The company has staff members through offices in Berlin, London, New York and Tokyo. Gestalten’s books are unique in the industry as all are edited and designed by designers. They typically document and anticipate vital trends in visual culture, the results of which Print Magazine has called “timeless” and “a perfect expression of our time.” With their extensive range of titles, they do not only seek to enhance and to enrich their reader’s lives, but to continually engage with the surrounding creative landscape. Their origin story began with a focus on the aesthetic, particularly that of graphic design and, over the last two decades, the scope of both their content and expertise has widened. Today, using a myriad of observations of culture, people, art, and other intimate inspirational informants, they document and anticipate vital movements in architecture, visual culture, design & fashion, escapism, food & beverages, travel, and contemporary art.
