Insert Blanc Press is pleased to announce the PreSale of three new books for Fall 2014, scheduled for release in November: For God by Todd CollinsNotes on Post-Conceptual Poetry by Felix Bernstein and Here Versus Elsewhere by Allison Carter.



For God by Todd Collins is a book of Murder, robbery, revenge, love and telecommunications. Non-finite bodies and endless subjection. Surrender to the narration. For God is a text you can actually read and apprehend as pure pleasure. Bathe in an elusive omniscience and enjoy sentences that shoot out like ribbons of pus, offering the reader mutilation and even more beauty. 

"Todd Collins is a stone-original among wannabes, with a sacred-profane vision fractured like a stained-glass window or vandalized mirror. This is brilliant neo-noir fiction searching for a shadow that’s worthy of it." 
—Steve Erickson (author of These Dreams of You and Zeroville, Europa Editions)



Notes on Post-Conceptual Poetry by Felix Bernstein is an aggravated survey of contemporary poetry, art, and criticism; compounded by compulsive archaeological digging in to the relics and ruins of Language poetry, Conceptual poetry, and Felix's own familiar familial corpus. 

"Notes on Post-conceptual Poetry is a list of ninety-three (93) notes, plus intro and endnotes, in which Bernstein attempts the most explicit and energetic deconstruction of prevailing avant-garde social minutiae I’ve yet encountered. In fact, I’m not sure I’ve ever read a text more intelligibly self-aware. Drawing on thinkers from Deleuze to Lacan to Love to Ngai to Badiou to Barthes to Perloff, and combining a Zizekian X-ray vision with the biting “you can’t scare me” of youth, Notes constitutes Bernstein’s irruption into / refusal of the institutional avant-garde."
Monroe Lawrence, The Capilano Review  



from Here Versus Elsewhere by Allison Carter: "N.B. Ghosts are cameras photographing a smaller space, then a bigger space around it. The space has people in it. I, like you, am crazy about ghosts, just as they are about us. ... Their movements can be sudden and empathetic, with incision of nail, through a space, above or below, holding a hand, you suddenly discover a sandy interior, moving through a sensory deprivation experience, I took your hand and felt it slip from the room, when, if ever, do I get to – does anyone get to - proceed?" 

Allison Carter’s narratives are virtuostic in craft and scope. Her quiet, simple lines betray a pressure and seem to boil at times. There is universal truth: ‘And then the zeitgeist we/became strictly inseparable/or so I thought.’ There is also great humor and precision, ‘But babies come from many places/and they are easy to grab at/through the rattling branches.’ Her poetry is an all-around pleasure to read, and it stays with me, like a consoling friend.”—Noelle Kocot

Rabble: Doug Harvey

What’s Happening in The Firesign Theatre’s I Think We’re All Bozos On This Bus as Best as I Can Make Out 

The Firesign Theatre’s I Think We’re All Bozos On This Bus is one of the greatest works of art of the 20th century: a performative, collectively authored, authentically prophetic, dystopian sci-fi stoner comedy LP from 1971 by the Los Angeles-based “Beatles of Comedy.” ... The cultural impact of FT’s ITWABOTB is widespread, profound and clandestine. If you don’t believe me, ask Siri “Why does the porridge-bird lay his egg in the air?” 

 

Rabble: Michael Ned Holte

The Urgency of History Painting
on the work of Michael Wilkinson

"I have started this so many times I no longer know where to begin. Well, no, I should begin with an apology, for I’ve promised you a piece of writing for a very long time, and the number of deferrals and delays is (mostly) uncharacteristic but also (totally) unacceptable. Rarely have I stumbled through so many false starts in attempting to write about an artist’s work. I should say that this does not point to any deficiency in your work or lack of interest on my part. Rather, I suspect, it points to the difficulty of apprehending your work from this considerable distance of time and space."

Essays by Doug Harvey and John Hogan
Hardbound, full color
Dimensions:
8.75” x 11.5” x 0.5” 140 pages
ISBN: 978-0-9911092-3-4

Ruin Upon Ruin by Ben White, a large format, full color, hardbound edition of 140 pages with essays by Doug Harvey and John Hogan, is now available and accompanied by a Limited Series of paintings from Insert Blanc Press. Featuring 30 paintings along with numerous details and images from White’s sketchbook, Ruin Upon Ruin by Ben White collects a number of White’s paintings into a single body of work from over the past five years. 

“Ben White conflates figures from American history and folk tales with contemporary box stores and roadside attractions, pointing to the relativity of cultural import and the collapsible nature of intellectual, philosophical and religious “progress” in America.”—John Hogan, Art21, May, 2012.

“If one were to run across one of Ben White’s paintings at a suburban garage sale or in the dusty backroom of a thrift store, one would snap it up immediately, display it prominently in one’s hip Silverlake-adjacent living room, then post it immediately on Facebook, hoping to learn more about the quixotic outsider genius that produced it. The Council of Nicaea supervising the faking of a moon landing? Unimpeachable. Liberace among the Hyenas in the Colloseum? Fabulous!”

Here Versus Elsewhere

by Allison Carter

Paperback, 80 pages

Dimensions: 5.5" x 8.5" x 0.25"

ISBN: 978-0-9911092-8-9

 

Insert Blanc Press is pleased to announce the PreSale of Here Versus Elsewhere by Allison Carter. Insert Blanc is also releasing a limited edition of Advice Cards seen below, with accompanying drawings by Ghost Artist Gerard Olson, an edition of 50 will come in a boxed collection of 12 cards each along with a signed copy of the book.

 

Here Versus Elsewhere

N.B. Ghosts are cameras photographing a smaller space, then a bigger space around it. The space has people in it. I, like you, am crazy about ghosts, just as they are about us.

Their movements can be sudden and empathetic, with incision of nail, through a space, above or below, holding a hand, you suddenly discover a sandy interior, moving through a sensory deprivation experience, I took your hand and felt it slip from the room, when, if ever, do I get to – does anyone get to - proceed? 

They can be left, right. By yourself or lonely. On the road or through the meadow. With internal logic, as a cat. 

I turned my back just once to the empty space in my bedroom and now I have a ghost named Christopher.

 

“Allison Carter’s narratives are virtuostic in craft and scope. Her quiet, simple lines betray a pressure and seem to boil at times. There is universal truth: ‘And then the zeitgeist we/became strictly inseparable/or so I thought.’ There is also great humor and precision, ‘But babies come from many places/and they are easy to grab at/through the rattling branches.’ Her poetry is an all-around pleasure to read, and it stays with me, like a consoling friend.”—Noelle Kocot

 

“Human echolocation is an ability of humans to detect objects in their environment by sensing echoes from those objects. Deploying complex language—polyrhythmic, repetitive, reverberant, resounding—with an eerie proficiency, Allison Carter’s writing performs a kind of linguistic human echolocation that articulates, navigates, and wayfinds space—physical, relational, emotional, and otherwise…—all within a network of deceptively familiar frames. In her new book, Here Versus Elsewhere, it is the accumulation of emptinesses, expertly and intentionally drawn, that definitively interprets the boundaries of the spaces the reader occupies as well as the nature of the entities, human and otherwise, that serve as persistent companions within those selfsame spaces.”
—Harold Abramowitz

 

Allison Carter is the author of A Fixed, Formal Arrangement (Les Figues Press) as well as several shorter collections, including Sum Total (Eohippus Labs), All Bodies Are The Same and Have The Same Reactions (Insert Blanc Press), Shadows Are Weather (Horse Less Press), and We All Are Worried About Repeating Mistakes That I Have Already Made: Breakfast Poems, forthcoming from Dancing Girl Press. She writes and works in Los Angeles, CA.

The Urgency of History Painting

on the work of Michael Wilkinson

I have started this so many times I no longer know where to begin. Well, no, I should begin with an apology, for I’ve promised you a piece of writing for a very long time, and the number of deferrals and delays is (mostly) uncharacteristic but also (totally) unacceptable. Rarely have I stumbled through so many false starts in attempting to write about an artist’s work. I should say that this does not point to any deficiency in your work or lack of interest on my part. Rather, I suspect, it points to the difficulty of apprehending your work from this considerable distance of time and space.

 

Rabble: Nizan Shaked

91 92 93—Returns

The success of 91 92 93 was that it reorganized historical artistic debates against the grain of their contemporaneous reception, allowing its audience to rethink what worked, what didn't, and for what reason. In this way, it stands in stark contrast to the facile toting of the term "conceptualism" by artists who lack any form of political commitment, who regurgitate the past adding nothing by saturated amplification, and whose only claim to fame is appropriating mass media.

 

 

Rabble, an imprint of Insert Blanc Press, is co-edited by Holly Myers and Mathew Timmons. Rabble prints single author issues of critical essays of about 1500 words on a subject of the author’s choosing. The subject will be an artwork (or series of artworks), but broadly defined: could be visual art, literature, music, architecture, film, design; could be contemporary or historical. The essay will be printed in pamphlet form, with room for a couple full color images, and distributed at a reasonable price.

Rabble seeks to be a venue through which to interrogate the nature of criticism, a laboratory for prodding at the boundaries of criticism as a form. The idea is to begin with a framework that reduces criticism down to its two fundamental components—the thing that's been made and the person who responds to the thing that's been made (i.e., the art work and the critic)—and invite each writer to take it from there. We’re not looking for the average book or exhibition review, but something that tests out a new direction, whatever that means to the individual author.

We have great confidence in the potential of Rabble to make a lasting contribution to the cultural discourse on the West Coast and beyond. It is our hope that, in charting a path between the two prevailing poles of the genre—the ever-narrowing shutters of print journalism on the one hand and the ponderous obscurity of the academy on the other—Rabble will go some way in restoring the sheer excitement of criticism.

shhhh! it's poetry by Jon Rutzmoser

a short interview with the author, Jon Rutzmoser

 

What is the working title of the book?

shhhh! it’s poetry 

 

Where did the idea come from for the book?
I wanted to write a book about the “it” that is often (not) “gotten” in poetry—i.e. Do you get it? or I don’t get it.

 

What genre does your book fall under?
Poetry—although I was thinking about it as a performance score as well.

 

What actors would you choose to play the part of your characters in a movie rendition?
James Franco would play the lyric “I”.  He’d be wearing a David Wojnarowicz mask for the entirety of the film. 

 

What is the one sentence synopsis of your book?
The lyric poet is sifting through shit.

 

How long did it take you to write the first draft of the manuscript?
About two years, though I was working on other projects simultaneously. After the initial draft, I spent another year or so with the edits. 

 

Who or what inspired you to write this book?
CA Conrad’s Book of Frank was really important for the formal development of this project. Also, at the early stages of the project, I came across a video by Anna Molska—the one where she’s singing “Jesus Loves Me.” I wanted the same intensity and bodily reaction to sounds. Once the manuscript was finished and I was dealing with having to face what I’d done, I saw Richard Hawkins’ Third Mind at the Hammer. It gave me a lot of clarity and confidence to move forward with my edits.   

 

What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest?
Shit’s poetry. Also, I made a limited edition series of 9 prints that engage with the book’s content to varying degrees. 

 

Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency?
shhhh! it’s poetry was recently published by Insert Blanc Press. You may buy your copy here!

 

PreSale copies are starting to ship this week, get your copy before Valentine's day at the PreSale price!

 

 

 

shhhh! it's poetry
by Jon Rutzmoser
Paperback, 66 pages
Dimensions: 5.5" x 8.5" x 0.25"
ISBN: 978-0-9911092-0-3

Insert Blanc Press is pleased to announce the PreSale of shhhh! it's poetry by Jon Rutzmoser, accompanied by shhhh!, a limited edition of prints also by the artist. 

 

 

Beginning with the ‘it’ which is often (not) “gotten” in poetry (shhhh!)—ie. “do you get it?”—shhhh! it’s poetry by Jon Rutzmoser performs a contemporary ethics rooted in a process of seduction utilizing contemporary aesthetic discourses, childhood language games, open letters, and performance scores as combined technologies for understanding “subjectivity.” Centering around a “young male artist” at times evasive and at other times highly present, shhhh! it’s poetry, builds toward a quest for foundationlessness, moving the speaker through notions of Oedipal searching and psychoanalytic interpretation until he ultimately finds joy in the meaningful arbitrariness of language and performance. Often aligning this “young male artist” with the abject, Rutzmoser explores phallogocentricism in an attempt to reveal, revel (in), or rather revile (through) male shit. Obviously, this push towards metaphysics ultimately fails; nonetheless, it fails joyfully.

 

What in the hell is Jon Rutzmoser doing? I can’t tell you for sure, but if you’re ready to take a deconstructed joyride splattered with historical and socio-political provocations—dare I say seriousnesses—shhhh! it’s poetry is for you. If you take the ride, you may learn how to hear a mullet breathe, chuck your penis, dismantle/pay homage to the relationship between poetry and art, and become one joyful motherfucker. 
—Maggie Nelson

Self-documenting as both code and self-recording craze, preemptive of its own critique. Not Cartesian but Trecartian (as in Ryan): I record myself, therefore I am. Jon Rutzmoser’s kinetic poems start in medias res, no establishing shots for context: Is the she lover, mother, alter ego? Enter the slash: and as well as or and line break. As in voyeurism / exhibitionism / alphabetized exhibits. As in shhhh / piss / hush poems. It’s poetry. Not just poetry. Is poetry not just—? Thanks for asking.

Lounge Acts by Doug Nufer

Lounge Acts
by Doug Nufer

Paperback, 66 pages
Cover design by Gregory Coats
Dimensions: 5.5" x 8.5" x 0.25"
ISBN: 978-0-9814623-8-7

 

"Those are all names of drinks by the way. I didn't have to make anything up here!"
—Doug Nufer

Insert Blanc Press is pleased to announce the release of Lounge Acts by Doug Nufer, alongside The Lounge Acts lounge act, a 38 minute downloadable mp3 audiobook edition with Bill Horist on guitar, Wally Shoup on saxophone, and Doug Nufer on vocals, recorded by Robb Kunz at Barça Lounge, Seattle, June 27, 2013.

 

“Nufer tells the truth, even though he knows as well as the lord above knows: the truth is over-rated. Nufer is a poet who has you in the corner, eye to eye, giving you the skinny, or maybe he’s with you at the counter, sharing secrets, his hand grabbing yr arm the more he realizes yr ok. That’s how damn good a writer he is.”           
—Thurston Moore

“Lounge is by its nature a mixologist’s soundtrack, or, as Doug Nufer—no stranger to the fillies he—might crack, a track sound for the Gin Ricky playing back bar. And here, Nufer swings..”  
—Vanessa Place

“I can’t define that book. Sometimes I think it’s a book of poetry, sometimes I think it’s a reference book, sometimes I think it’s a conceptual art piece. It flows in and out of different contexts. I believe it will be received by the poetry world, by the writing world that I’m involved with. It got really juiced in the music world. We got major juice.”     
—Kenneth Goldsmith

 

Doug Nufer learned how to drink as a dishwasher for a seafood restaurant in Pt. Pleasant Beach, NJ, where he dumped the remains of incoming unfinished drinks into one cup and then chugged as he wiped off plates. Now he's a professional wine taster in Seattle and the author of six novels and three books of poetry. His novels include Never AgainNegativeland, and By Kelman Out of Pessoa. His poetry books include The Dammed and We Were Werewolves. He performs with the word band Interrupture, with musicians and/ or dancers, and by himself, on stages, in bars, in classrooms, and occasionally in fields and rivers.

We would like to invite you to General Projects: A Show for You a summer show at Insert Blanc Press HQ / Chris Niemi Studio. 

The show will consist of artists on Insert Blanc Press alongside various other artists we've recently met, and some who are relatively new to Los Angeles. Work in the show will consist of sculpture, photography, painting, video, performance and etc... Besides the opening we have scheduled dates for events to make room for time based work such as readings, lectures, performances, screenings and etc with Friday August 9th focused slightly more on video screenings.

We're in Downtown LA in a warehouse and have a fair amount of open wall and floor space. We live here and are excited to have our living area also function as a gallery and performance space! You may see a list of artists below and we will be adding surprise performances to the list. 

We would love you to join us for General Projects: A Show for You
