Reversible monuments : contemporary Mexican poetry by Mónica de la Torre( Book )

10 editions published in 2002 in English and Spanish and held by 838 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mexican Poetry has flourished during the last thirty years, and this ambitious multi-lingual anthology surveys the vibrant and eclectic work of poets born after 1950. The poetry of this new generation reflects a wealth of backgrounds, regions, styles, and especially influences -- including traditional and inventive narrative, formalism, lyrics, suites, and experimental verse. This is also the first generation of Mexican poets to hold in common an international perspective. Unlike anthologies offering only one or two poems by each author, Reversible Monuments affords its poets space enough to present larger-than-usual selections, allowing readers to more fully realize the individual voices. The translations, by both distinguished translators and brilliant new practitioners, are concise and transparent, and most are published here for the first time. In addition, several indigenous poets who write in Zapotec, Tzeltal, and Mazatec are presented tri-lingually
La Calle : photographs from Mexico by Alex Webb( Book )

4 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 122 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La Calle brings together more than thirty years of photography from the streets of Mexico by Alex Webb, spanning 1975 to 2007. Whether in black and white or color, Webb's richly layered and complex compositions touch on multiple genres. As Geoff Dyer writes, "Wherever he goes, Webb always ends up in a Bermuda-shaped triangle where the distinctions between photojournalism, documentary, and art blur and disappear." Webb's ability to distill gesture, light, and cultural tensions into single, beguiling frames results in evocative images that convey a sense of mystery, irony, and humor. Following an initial trip in the mid-1970s, Webb returned frequently to Mexico, working intensely on the U.S.-Mexico border and into southern Mexico throughout the 1980s and '90s, inspired by what poet Octavio Paz calls "Mexicanism--delight in decorations, carelessness and pomp, negligence, passion, and reserve." La Calle presents a commemoration of the Mexican street as a sociopolitical bellwether--albeit one that has undergone significant transformation since Webb's first trips to the country. Newly commissioned pieces from noted Mexican and Mexican American authors lend further insight into the roles the streets have played for generations: part arterial network, part historical palimpsest, and part absurdist theater of the everyday.--Publisher website
The happy end/All welcome by Mónica de la Torre( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 96 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Happy End/ All Welcome is set in a job fair inspired by the Nature Theater of Oklahoma from Kafka’s unfinished novel Amerika: the largest theater company in the world is recruiting all kinds of employees. De la Torre builds, fastens, cuts, pastes, performs, and extrudes a variety of poems to suit this most serious situation comedy: poems as job interviews, poems as postings, poems as questionnaires, reports, speeches, lyrical rants… At its heart, this playful bricolage explores the norms of the workplace and its notions of competence, while tackling office design, performativity, and skilled vs. deskilled creative labor. -- Publisher

Materia prima by Amanda Berenguer( Book )

1 edition published in 2019 in English and held by 45 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Materia Prima is the first English-language collection of Amanda Berenguer's poetry. A key contributor to Uruguay's famed literary Generación del 45, Berenguer (1921-2010) stands among the most important post-World War II poets of Latin America, along with her now-legendary compatriot Marosa di Giorgio. Berenguer's poetry, stylistically and conceptually varied, ranges from classic, measured lyric to Dickinson-inspired gnomic utterance; from metaphysical and erotic rhetorical effusion to condensed and radically concrete experiment; from seemingly apolitical languor to pointed ideological dissent. The poems included in this edition span a large portion of Berenguer's career and are taken from eight books, and an additional section dedicated to her visual poems."--Publisher's website (viewed 2019 June 3)

Olga Chernysheva : vague accent by Olga Chernysheva( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Born in 1962 in Moscow, where she still lives, 'Olga Chernysheva' is one of the most perceptive and sensitive observers of her native country's cultural and geographic landscape. Eschewing simplistic rendering of the post-Soviet political and social atmosphere, Chernysheva instead depicts a side of Russia that is rarely seen. Drawing is integral to this drive in Chernysheva's work: her charcoal renderings, with their blurred edges and delicate textures, provide the viewer with an arrestingly intimate view of her anonymous subjects as they linger, doze, and aimlessly wander. This volume documents the series of works that The Drawing Center commissioned Chernysheva to produce over the course of a month in New York City in 2015. Though she has been depicting the urban landscape for decades, she has rarely strayed from portraits of her home country
Defense of the idol by Omar Cáceres( Book )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Branded a 'poète maudit' for the cryptic circumstances surrounding his life and death, Omar Cáceres once tried to destroy all copies of his one and only book. The myth around him survived thanks to the inclusion of fifteen poems from Defense of the Idol in the groundbreaking anthology Antología de poesía chilena nueva from 1935. Presented here for the first time in English translation, along with the sole foreword Vicente Huidobro ever wrote for a poet, the poems of Cáceres possess a ghostly, metaphysical energy combined with modern-age imagery: bows pulsate, moons hurtle, rains sing, trees drag their shadows in drunk stupors, winds break the sky open. But the interior life of the poet assumes dominance, interrogated through anguished, turbulent dreamscapes of language."--Publisher's website (viewed 2018 July 25)

Florian Meisenberg : somewhere sideways down at an angle but very close( Book )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Several printers mounted beneath the gallery's ceiling tirelessly spit out sheets that slowly glide to the floor and stay where they land. For his project 'Somewhere sideways, down, at an angle, but very close', Florian Meisenberg (b. Berlin, 1980; lives and works in New York) invited friends, artists, and curators to send pictures and messages to the printers. His paintings often render digital motifs; his videos, by contrast, present an analog material reality. In the exhibition space, the participants' ephemeral digital transmissions suddenly gain physical and tangible presence, adding an unwonted new dimension to Meisenberg's work. The artist eventually collected all sheets; this book is his idiosyncratic presentation of a sample from the output. Far from a linear documentation of the project, it expands on it, transforming it into a brilliant work of printed matter that is a must-have for any Florian Meisenberg fan. It comes with an Augmented Reality app that lets the user translate all posts into sound and experience the choreography of images in the space-time fabric of the book
