五金新书推出 Wu Jin Bookshelf - New Arrival

Arrow Factory: The Next Four Years


Founded in 2008, Arrow Factory is one of the longest standing, fully independent, non-commercial art spaces in Beijing. Located in a narrow alley inside the city center, this 15 square meter space spearheads various forms of site-oriented artistic display, collaboration and experimentation by local and international contemporary artists. Arrow Factory: The Next Four Years comprehensively documents the twenty-two projects mounted in this reclaimed storefront between March 2011 and May 2015. This follow-up publication features new perspectives from organizers of influential artist-run initiatives around the world, and is structured around the elemental question: What is a good institution? Through these views and others, Arrow Factory: The Next Four Years offers a window into the diverse conditions that shape China’s current cultural climate.

箭厂空间出版 Published by Arrow Factory

Wu Jin is very pleased to announce the arrival of six new titles from Badlands Unlimited, an independent publisher founded by Paul Chan and later joined by fellow artists Ian Cheng, Micaela Durand and Matthew So. Launched in 2010, Badlands Unlimited publishes e-books, paper books, and artist works in digital and print forms. They make books in the “expanded field.”

Wu Jin has procured titles by Chan that include “Waiting For Godot in New Orleans: A Field Guide” that documents his production of Beckett’s play set in post-Katrina New Orleans; “The Essential and Incomplete Sade for Sade’s Sake,” on his 2009 Venice Biennale project and “Phaedrus Pron,” an artist book that “rewrites” Socrates with a custom designed dirty/sexy computer font.  Also from Badlands are limited copies of “Marcel Duchamp: The Afternoon Interviews” by Calvin Tomkins, “The Best Most Useless Dress” by Claudia La Rocco, and “Poems” by Yvonne Rainer. Wu Jin is currently the sole vendor for Badlands books in China. Stock is limited.

Paul Chan received the Hugo Boss Prize in 2014.
