Access Through Tools is a graphic design festival within London College of Communication's School of Design. The title takes its name from the Whole Earth Catalog, a proto-internet, print-based cultural phenomenon that sought ‘to make a variety of tools accessible to newly-dispersed counterculture communities’. The festival goals are to explore the construction of knowledge through design production: showcasing tools, processes and materials integral to the making of art and design.

On April 22nd and 23rd, LCC will host a two day series of events with workshops, lectures and an exhibition with Daniel Eatock, James Langdon, Peter Nencini, Audrey Samson, New North Press, Peter Bilak and many others...

All events are free to attend for UAL staff and students. Places must be reserved in advance. Bookings are now open at this > link <

Go To Ground is an account of the first five years of Vulpes Vulpes, containing archival material that documents the workings of the project, as well as commissioned texts and contributions from artists. This book is an insight into the motivations of the group and an informal resource for artist-led activity.

Contributors include: Patrick Goddard, Berry Patten, Emily Ballard, Copenhagen Place (Justyna Kabala & Paul Gwilliam), Christopher Rawcliffe, Hadiru Mahdi, Christina Laskaridis, Verity Keefe, Laurie Storey, Anna Chrystal Stephens, Glen Stoker, Reuben Bowles, Adam Burton, Ben Garrod, Carla Wright.

The book will be available at a discounted price at the launch, and on this special night maybe you can meet the love of your life at VV.

A PARALLEL APPROACH is a place of action, not of exhibition. It is an opportunity to associate fragments of research, experimentation and realisation; to contemplate aspects that are foreign to one another; to encounter new findings for some that are reminders for others; to activate and interpret; to formulate and consider; to build transitions and justifications; to wander and to ponder; to stop and to think. You are invited to resist convention, administer caution with assumption and suspend established habitual modes of engagement whilst making your way through this rich, divergent and sprawling terrain of theoretical, conceptual and practical endeavors.

Publication as Practice II
A short course on concepts of artists’ publications
#6: Open Books, Volume E, Final draft
Organised by Charlotte Cheetham and Sophie Demay.

With a wandering by Alexandru Balgiu from 'The New Rational Typewriting' and contributions from Paul Bailey, Angélique Buisson, Loraine Furter, Valérian Goalec, Aurélien Mole, Museum of Museum, Ghazaal Vojdani and Eleanor Vonne Brown. The event is based on Open Books most recent chapter, Volume E. It acts as a 3D Mock up of the chapter. A final draft before it goes to print. A live edit. A rehearsal.

Since 2010, the project Open Books has been playing with the idea of spaces: the space of the book – its representation as an object – and the book in the space – the systems of its display in exhibitions.

This event lies precisely in between these spaces, at their crossroads, margins and intervals. A second edition of Open Books that includes volume E, is to be released in early 2015 and published by Hato Press.

The exhibition is primarily a staging of exhibiting. It deals with the structures, practices and conventions of the presentation of art. Over a period of four weeks, the exhibition space is transformed into a site for production, which constantly transforms. Artistic works are created, set and documented in scene. The visitors observe each of the show moments in a process - individual elements are combined to form an overall structure in the course of the exhibition. The exhibition also explores the possibility and reception of aesthetic practice, the relationship of parts to the whole, of real time experience and mediated communication.

For the final opening on 20 September, the catalog for the exhibition will be published by Walther König. The catalog does not take on the same format as the exhibition. The catalog shares a version of the exhibition. It is the simulation of the exhibition.

The exhibition is a work of the two artists Alexander Basile and Alwin Lay. Initiated by Gertrud Peters and Mischa Kuball in cooperation with the -1 / MinusEins experimental laboratory.

The exhibition features 19 international practitioners:
BASTIAN HOFFMANN (Köln), PETER HERMANS (Leipzig), BALZ ISLER (Berlin), JAMES NIZAM (Toronto), JAN HOEFT (Köln), STÉPHANIE SOLINAS (Paris), VERENA SEIBT & CLEA STRACKE (München), MIA BOYSEN (Köln), TAIYO ONORATO & NICO KREBS (Berlin/ Zürich), IAN DE RUITER (Amsterdam), PAUL BAILEY (London/Ireland), PETER MILLER (Paris), DANIEL NIGGEMANN (Hamburg), RHEIN VERLAG (Düsseldorf), ARNE SCHMITT (Leipzig), JOHANNES POST (Köln), MARK VON SCHLEGELL (Köln/Los Angeles), FLEUR VAN DODEWAARD (Rotterdam), BERNHARD CELLA (Wien)
