ARTPIL / Prescription .133
The Summer's End

 

The summer’s end is upon us, the respite from a life on pause now rounded out. For many, the pandemic is in the rear view, and wars, now classified, or de/re-classified.

Pack up the beach bags and the picnic baskets. Count the incoming votes, with or without incident. Back to school, return to work, live the new normal….

On this day, August 22, The first Geneva Convention is adopted and signed by 12 nations – its plural form composed of four treaties and various protocols that establish international legal standards for humanitarian treatment in war and define the basic rights of wartime prisoners as well as establishing protections for the wounded and sick, including civilians in and around war-zones (1864).

On this day was born the American poet and writer Dorothy Parker (1893), French composer Claude Debussy (1862), and Henri Cartier-Bresson (1908), one of the founding members of Magnum Photos.

Welcome to the .133rd edition of Prescriptions. Here is our review of the week in the arts.

In this year’s edition of Rencontres d’Arles titled Visible or Invisible, A Summer Revealed, artists are there to remind us of what we want to neither hear nor see. “It is to the visible, to images, that man turns for a radical testimony of his own being, his own nature.” Through September 25, 2022, Arles.

  • Zhanna Kadyrova: Border Memory
    Feb 17 – May 5, 2024
    Uppsala Art Museum
    Uppsala, Sweden

The artist works in a post-minimalist tradition, and the spatial installations refer both to utopian movements and to how abstraction in art is linked to the modern project. Since Russia’s full-scale invasion in 2022, Kadyrova’s art has focused entirely on psychological and sociological aspects of the war. (more…)

  • Lars Harmsen: Collision
    Publication
    Slanted
    International

    Collision by Lars Harmsen is the collision of intuition and the human experience. A visual journey of photographs, design, and ideas. With this publication, the author mercilessly settles accounts with the last 10 years of his creative work. Numerous pieces and creations, from Slanted, PosterRex and 100for10 to freelance works and other projects have been destroyed, cut up and reassembled. A maximum of carnage. With a minimum of diplomacy. (more…)

    Tipi Photo Bookshop

    Anarene is a book that was born from an eight-year photographic project made by Mikel Bastida in the United States. In the spirit of referencing the ghost town in Archer County, Texas, portrayed in Peter Bogdanovich’s film adaptation of Larry McMurtry’s novel The Last Picture Show, the author has traveled the country looking for images and stories that cinema has left behind.
