Une caravane ou plutôt des caravanes ?
Objet protéiforme et mot polysémique, la caravane ne se laisse pas appréhender facilement. Caravane des mages, caravane de pèlerins, de nomades, de porteurs, de cyclistes, caravane publicitaire, caravane de touristes, de voyageurs en tous genres. Caravane de nuages… L’idée de voyage participe de toutes ces caravanes ; des voyages qui se préparent, des voyages fantasmés auxquels on s’accroche pour s’évader, des voyages désirés ou associés à la fuite, l’Orient, au rêve, à la lenteur : la caravane figure le déracinement et l’ailleurs..

L’exposition Caravane(s) s’est tenue à L’atelier du midi (Arles) pendant l’été 2013 dans le cadre de Marseille-Provence 2013 et autour des Rencontres d’Arles.

Les commissaires d’exposition, Laurence et Patrick Ruet, accompagnés de Sébastien Spicher, ont réuni cinquante-quatre photographes pour cette aventure photographique et populaire, dans laquelle les photographies de famille côtoient les images des photographes-auteurs. Cette édition – développée en trois tomes – est le fruit d’une belle rencontre entre les éditions l’Erre de rien et L’atelier du midi.

21-24 rue Ganeron 75018 Paris

Rencontres d’Arles Festival, 07/2011

” LE GARAGE is an itinerant exhibition project born out of a common love for photography-related books and publications.

We are a small group of photographers and photo enthusiasts based in Paris. We launched the collective project LE GARAGE to develop the interest, fecundity, and creativity characterizing the phenomenon of the photobook today. By welcoming new works in development, all related by their consideration for the form of the photobook, LE GARAGE offers an insight into one of the most dynamic fields of today’s photographic practice.

Began at the Rencontres d’Arles Festival in July 2010, the original exhibition featured a curated series of 35 photography artist books and book dummies, chosen for their merit and the extent to which they pushed the twin mediums of photography and photography books.

During the following year, we had the opportunity to further show a selection of LE GARAGE twice more, at the Chateau d’Eau gallery in Toulouse and at Le Bal in Paris. ”

Behind the Zines : Self-Publishing Culture

Editors: R. Klanten, A. Mollard, M. Hübner
Release Date: March 2011
Format: 24 x 28 cm
Features: 240 pages, full color, softcover
ISBN: 978-3-89955-336-9
Behind the Zines introduces a cutting-edge selection of international zines and examines their role as a catalyst in the evolution of media and graphic design today. The book presents the broad range of existing zines that combine thought-provoking content with compelling design: from project-oriented portfolios and (pseudo) scientific treatises to playrooms where creatives can run riot and publications in which the printing process significantly influences aesthetics. It not only describes the key factors that distinguish various zines, but—through interviews with people involved in their production and distribution—also sheds light on various strategies for this evolving media form.
Social networks are dominating today‘s headlines, but they are not the only platforms that are radically changing the way we communicate. Creatives such as designers, photographers, artists, researchers, and poets are disseminating information about themselves and their favorite subjects not via predefined media such as Twitter or blogs, but through printed or other self-published projects—so-called zines. Those who publish zines are mostly interested in sole authorship, namely that all components including text, images, layout, typography, production, and distribution are firmly in the hands of one person or a small group. At their best, the results convey a compelling and consistent atmosphere and push against the established creative grain in just the right way. They provoke with surprising and non-linear food for thought. In short, zines are advancing the evolution of today‘s media.

With a cutting-edge selection of international examples, Behind the Zines introduces the broad range of zines that exists today. These include zines that function as a new kind of project-oriented portfolio to showcase a self-profile or document an exhibit. While some act as (pseudo) scientific treatises to call the reader‘s attention to a specific topic, others serve as playrooms for creatives to run riot and express themselves and communicate with each other in a space that is free from editorial restrictions.

The book examines the key factors that distinguish various zines. It introduces projects in which the printing process significantly influences aesthetics or in which limited distribution to a small, clearly defined target audience becomes part of the overall concept.

Behind the Zines not only documents outstanding work, but also shows how the self-image of those who make zines impacts the scene as a whole. Through interviews with people involved in zine production and distribution, the book sheds light on various strategies for this evolving media form.

“The greater involvement with self-publishing has made me more skeptical of the scene in general. While it’s very conforting that self-publishing , small publishing, independent publishing, or whatever you want to call it is exeprencing a healthy boom right now, it brings back memories of a certain phase in the mid to late nineties when everyone became a DJ for a year or two – and swapped their MK2 for a skateboard once they lost interested.

So, at a time when big arts fairs invite small publishers to sell their wares and big publishers do books on small publishers, we are obviously experiencing the peak of a trend. Well, every peak is followed by a trough, so we are likely to see a decrease in production and projects, or, according to Sam de Groot in an e-mail exchange on the pros and cons of participating in aforesaid art fair: “I predict we’ll lose our all-stars status in the great self-publishing bubble burst of 2012″. But, well, after all we were part of it”. Urs Lehni
