‘The Beheading of the Fruit Fly (How will I know if you are truly a sentient being?)’ Antye Guenther

A vinyl publication dealing with seductive, nevertheless problematic computer-brain-analogies while acknowledging potential other-than-human intelligence/intelligent behavior. It unfolds a poetic narrative of the machine that is talking back, questioning human thinking and perception of the world in restrictive (binary) categories while at the same time expressing its longing for connection and for merging with its surrounding. The vinyl of THE BEHEADING OF THE FRUIT FLY contains electromagnetic sound emission of JUQUEEN, initially the fifth most powerful supercomputer in the world, located at the Forschungszentrum Jülich in Germany.

‘Polder VIII, Tuindorp Oostzaan, Amsterdam 1920-2020’ Raimond Wouda

Tuindorp Oostzaan was the first real garden village in Amsterdam, intended to offer working-class families light, air and space and a decent accommodation. Each family has its own front door and a garden at the front and back. Located near the shipyards, but far from the city center. The village grew and the world changed. The Vegabuurt was added and in the 1950s Tutti-Fruttidorp and Tuindorp Oostzaan-West. New residents moved to Noord, thousands of people worked on the yards. Now heavy industry has disappeared, North is trending and the houses are popular with young city dwellers. Publishing date: September 2021

‘Centurion’ Brian Ulrich

The title ‘Centurion’ refers to an urban legend of the 1980s that became a reality in 1999. The legend held that American Express issued, by invitation only, a special charge card to ultra-wealthy individuals, who could use it to purchase anything and everything that they wanted, from private planes to private islands—as long as they did not disclose the existence of the card. The company fielded hundreds of calls from people requesting to be considered for the card. Articles were written claiming that the card truly existed (one such article appeared in the Wall Street Journal in 1988), while others were written debunking the claim. Finally, in 1999, American Express launched the Centurion, an actual charge card program with features and benefits resembling those attributed to the elusive 1980s version.
An artist drawn to exploring the visual landscape of America’s consumption economy, Ulrich has spent the last several years photographing sites and people associated with extreme wealth. The allure of material abundance is among the most powerful forces driving contemporary culture, and it permeates contemporary advertising and popular culture. This, despite the old saw (and solid evidence) that money cannot buy happiness, is the contradiction powering the myth that resulted in the reality of the Centurion. Publishing date: Autumn 2021
