After a fabulous long hot summer it’s time to go back to school. Come on then, grab your new pencil case and blazer and let’s get ready for Autumn.
We’ve got some great new titles coming up (too many to mention here) so don’t forget to sign up for our newsletter to receive regular updates. You can also follow us on Twitter (@CornerhousePubs), Facebook and Instagram (@cornerhousepublications)
Here are just a few from the Autumn collection…
Criminal Ornamentation, from Hayward Publishing. Curated by Yinka Shonibare MBE. Using the Starting point of Adolf Loos essay Ornament and Crime, it’s a fascinating read, looking at work from the Arts Council collection that use pattern to explore race, gender, class and elitism. Works to surprise us and make us think. This accompanies a touring exhibition (hopefully) coming to a town near you.
Yoko Ono: Everything in the Universe Is Unfinished combines never-before-published texts and invitation pieces written in 2016–2018 with drawings from the Franklin Summer series she started in 1994. It looks rather lovely.
Did you know that a bummock is the part of an iceberg beneath the water and hidden from view? I’ll bet not. Flipping the Bummock Press are looking to investigate, research and use unseen parts of archives as catalysts for the creation of new artworks. Bummock: The Lace Archive explores the Lace Archive in Nottingham. This title is the first of a series of books exploring the hidden archives.
Created by French author and artist Perrine Rouillon Little SomeOne was Rouillon’s ink-drawn alter ego. It’s not just a scribble, it’s a someone … Intrigued? Then look no further than, ME AND THE OTHER LITTLE SOMEONES WOULD LIKE TO KNOW WHY WE’RE NOT IN THE BOOK NOT TO MENTION IT’S THE FIRST TIME I PUT MY ARMS LIKE THIS.
Next up, one of our own HOME Publications, One Day The Sadness Will End. Created by Sarah Perks and Declan Clarke, this work featured in last year’s Return of Memory exhibition here at HOME. Each day a name of a person, group, or place believed to have been betrayed by revolution was projected on a screen. The book is sure to be as fascinating as the exhibit.
Finally, not a new title but a re-print of a beautiful book. Robby Müller: Polaroid will be available again soon. Known as the ‘Master of Light’, celebrated cinematographer Müller worked alongside directors such as Jim Jarmusch and Wim Wenders. This book features his polaroids, often taken between his work on set and showing his amazing use of light.
Well, that’s it for now but there will be plenty more to follow so do keep in touch.
