Green Light – An Artistic Workshop
Daniela Zyman & Eva Ebersberger (Eds.)
Green Light is a project initiated by artist Olafur Eliasson in collaboration with Thyssen-Bornemisza Art Contemporary, Vienna. Conceived as a field of production and mutual learning, Green Light works with refugees, asylum seekers, migrants, and NGOs to fabricate an unlimited edition of fully functional lamps, which are geometric, stackable modules made from recyclable materials that are fitted with a welcoming green light. Providing fundraising and education opportunities, Green Light workshops first took place in Vienna in 2016, and have since been hosted at the Moody Center for the Arts (Houston) and the 57th Venice Biennale. The publication seeks to question and reflect on the project through testimonies, stories, and memories by the participants and founders as well as reflect on the relationship between culture and migration today. With more than twenty contributors including Atif Akin, Anas Aljajeh, Tarek Atoui, Tawab Baran, Ian Cion, Angela Dimitrakaki, and Olafur Green Light participants, among others.

SSS: How to Imitate the Sound of the Shore Using Two Hands and a Carpet
SSS: How to Imitate the Sound of the Shore Using Two Hands and a Carpet is, at first glance, exactly what it claims to be: an in-depth manual for staging a private (or public) performance, in which one uses both hands and a carpet to imitate the sounds of water making contact with land. The palm-sized book by Istanbul–based artist Cevdet Erek (b. 1974) includes diagrams and photographs that illustrate possible methods for producing this effect, while also addressing theoretical and methodological issues related to the representation of nature. SSS is the second book in the Kayfa Ta series. Each book in the series is a monographic essay commissioned in the style of how-to manuals that situate themselves in the space between the technical and the reflective, the everyday and the speculative, the instructional and the intuitive, and the factual and the fictional.
