Teaching for People who Prefer Not to Teach
Edited by Marjam Bayerdörfer & Rosalie Schweiker IBSN 978-1-907840-12-8.

A manual that fits in your pocket. “It’s a messy collection of ideas: contributions our friends and colleagues sent us, our own learning experiences and rumours we heard. You might ask yourself who this manual is for. Is it for teachers? Is it for students? Is it only relevant for teaching art? The answer is: Yes and No. We don’t know. Probably both. As self-employed artists, we have become used to performing our...

Comprising a series of twenty conversations conducted by Thorne with the artists, curators, and educators behind these schools, the book maps a territory at once fertile and contested.

Supersurfaces by Sophia Vyzoviti
ISBN 978-90636912-1-9 (2006) BIS Publishers, Amsterdam.

In the form of a pocket diary, this booklet makes clear how the new technique of folding can be applied not only in architecture, but also in industrial, product or textile manufacture. Vyzoviti uses paper as an empirical model. She investigates and systematically describes how flat paper is transformed into volumes when creating prototypes. Supersurfaces is filled with hand-folded, twisted, wound and woven forms. This ‘other’ manner...
