AQNB 2012-2022 book launch in Berlin!

Please join us on Nov 15 from 7pm at the Kunstlerkneipe Schmetterling for the Berlin book launch of the AQNB anthology. We will be accompanied by Steph Kretowicz, Matt Dell, and others!

You can purchase the book with a special discount until the launch in our web store!

We let the benches out!
Together with Flat i and Monika Janulevičiūtė, we are happy to release Monika's newest artist book, BENCH, VOL. I.

This first volume contains 378 screenshots of benches found in real estate listings – from summer houses, homesteads, barns, garden houses, timber sheds to wash houses and saunas – in provinces and towns of Lithuania. You will see, it seems like life was removed quite recently, or not at all – the soup is still warm. Life is retained as it is and with benches in the margins. Bags, tools, blankets, apples, snow – the daily clutter of life – are found undisturbed.

And for the first ten days, until July 8, we are launching it for a special price!
See shop.tltr.biz or welcometoflati.bigcartel.com for online orders ;)

If you happen to be in London, join us for the launch of AQNB anthology at the ICA on June 2, from 9pm!

Marking the independent media platform AQNB.com’s end of publishing, send off this stubborn labour of love with a party featuring DJ sets by aircode, Lauren Duffus, oxhy and more.

Following a huge demand by our fans, we prepared several bootlegs of our sold-out publications, which you can get printed on demand at Lulu.com. And as a bonus, the bootlegs are larger than the originals!

EDIT: They are no longer available. We are sorry, you need to look for them on the black market.

Join us on Tuesday the 21st at 12 PM CET, for the premiere of the new mesmerizing sound release ‘Arrangements in Place’ by Jazmina Figueroa on Lyl Radio.
This release has five recorded tracks grown out of some of Figueroa’s ongoing projects and collaborations.
And with these arrangements, their places, and varying narrative processes — we will tune into our own sonic-spatial awarenesses.

Shortly after, Arrangements in Place will be made available via TLTRPreß Bandcamp.

Together with Flat i, we are pleased to launch a new weekly recurring bulletin of the Handrail Awareness Group. The group was founded by Michiel Huijben, Monika Janulevičiūtė, Martin Kohout, and Bianca Pedrina. It delivers rare handrails from an ever-expanding collection of supports from all over the world to your inbox. Mostly on Wednesdays. The launch will be accompanied by an installation and an event at Kunstraum SUPER, in Vienna, opening on April 8, followed by an excursion in the 5. district on Saturday, 9. April.


If you happen to be in Berlin on March 11, please join us at a.p. from 6pm for out 77th anniversary in dog years, combined with the book launch of STILL DANCING, and accompanied by readings and performance.
Profits from sales at the event, as well as from our current sales in general, will go towards donations for the victims of the invasion in Ukraine. We will specify the destination of these funds soon.

The event will follow 2G+ rules and a RVSP is needed at this link.

STILL DANCING: WRITING ABOUT DANCING ABOUT ARCHITECTURE, INFRASTRUCTURE, ACCESS, ECONOMICS, INTERALIA just launched for special release price undil December 1 at our online store here!

We will be participating at the Publishers' Fair in The Hopscotch Hof, on Sunday, August 15, 2021.

It's here again! A second episode of our radio show Shapes Without Names with TLTRPreß, hosted by Montez Press Radio and originally aired on April 13, during the L.A. Art Book Fair. We spent the hour with artists Julie Béna (who has published 'It Needed to be Tender and to be Whipped' with Montez Press in 2017), Valentýna Janů (who is excellent at performing her writings out loud from memory), and Martin Kohout (your host…). This time, we recorded in Prague for a change!

We made a radio show! Shapes Without Names with TLTRPreß @ Montez Press Radio aired on February 24, 2019 and you can listen to its extended version on our soundcloud here. Aleksandra Bielas presented her audio drama The Red Button and Will Kherbek presented two shorts stories of his. The readings were followed by a discussion with the publisher, Mr. Kohout.

We will launch our new publication Night Shifter at Auto Italia South East in London on March 16th, 7-9pm. Come and join us! Georgina Voss will perform a new piece and Habib William Kherbek will read from his contribution to the book.

AQNB, 2012-2022

Over the course of a decade, AQNB (Atractivo que no bello) documented emerging artistic practices, movements, and voices. Rooted in the anti-hierarchical, highly personalized, and globallydistributed communities facilitated by Web 2.0, the online platform chronicled cultures as they emerged, and the common aesthetic language those cultures forged.

This anthology brings together the works of the artists, writers, musicians, critics, theorists, and associated forces whose voices defined AQNB. They were a group of creative practitioners who sought and found new pathways for artistic expression; cultural co-conspirators whose alliances have helped to define creativity in the hybrid IRL digital geographies where we all now live, work, (periodically) thrive, and survive—spaces as vibrant as they are anxious, as dynamic as they are leaky.

AQNB offered a glimpse of the present as the future, and this collection provides a distillation of the essence of a project whose meaning rejects finality. In reading it, you may find fleeting glimpses of your own story, yesterday, today, tomorrow, and beyond.

BENCH, VOL. I contains 378 screenshots of benches found in real estate listings – from summer houses, homesteads, barns, garden houses, timber sheds to wash houses and saunas – in provinces and towns of Lithuania.

This archival volume presents a variety of small wooden benches, without removing them from their usual spots nor forcing them into strict typologies. Most photographs are taken by realtors, some by the house owners or relatives. The houses and their benches are from peripheral villages and towns in Lithuania, listed on real estate sites costing “under 50,000 Euros”. These images capture life and the state of the house, the layers of refurbishments and updates, as well as the occasional cosmetic touches for their sale. In most cases, as you will see, it seems like life was removed quite recently, or not at all – the soup is still warm. Life is retained as it is and with benches in the margins. Bags, tools, blankets, apples, snow – the daily clutter of life – are found undisturbed. Each photograph gives many clues: the entrance bench is both private and common; the kitchen bench is both for work and pastime; the shed bench is for sunbathing and yard chores. They accompany the household and are as energetic, stubborn and capricious as horses, lambs, goats, and guardian dogs.

Monika Janulevičiūtė is a Lithuanian designer and artist. For her, the frankness of bench-making binds design, craft and art practices together. The bench takes a centre place to the extreme. A multifaceted quotidian subject swivelling around its vertical axis, showing the elastic attachments to life and functionality.

Gathered and designed by Monika Janulevičiūtė.

Arrangements in Place
by Jazmina Figueroa

Arrangements in Place by Jazmina Figueroa consists of five recorded arrangements, often made in collaboration with others, in which instrumental music and ambient sounds intermingle with spoken word. In the piece, the narration (spoken by the writer herself) detaches itself from the referent, pointing instead to the elastic and slippery materiality of language. The listener is exposed to the intimate proximity, but also to the disorienting effects of speech.

Bypassing the premise of omniscience, mastery, and liberal self-possession, the sounds and words in Figueroa's piece emphasise the incompleteness and fragility of each uttered statement, with "artefacts and ruins" of language participating in the drama of communication between the personal and the social.”

– Sebastjan Brank

Listen to the album at our Bandcamp here.

Jazmina Figueroa is writer based in Berlin. Her works draw on recognizing data extraction and technology experience as personal and non-scalable with inherent socio-political underpinnings. Lately, she thinks a lot about what correlates with entropy and chaos.

Thank you to Tobias Koch, Theodolous Polyviou, Martins Kohout, Ondřej Teplý, Clemens Jahn, Dakis Panayiotou, Anike Joyce Sadiq, and Laura Katzauer – each of you shaped the arrangements in one way or another and I’m so grateful.

The texts included in this book were produced by several writers I have known and appreciated the work of as well as some people I was introduced to by other artists and performers. I wanted to produce a work that was one part ekphrasis and another part parlour game. The idea of dance as an intersection of discourses, themes, and forms was something I wanted to use as a starting positions for this volume. Where dance brings together embodiment, impermanence, performativity, desire, anxiety, spatiality, ephemerality, and many other states of being and experience, I was interested in the ways the ruptures inscribed in “sadler’s ills” might become loci of new approaches to thinking about dance. The arrangement of the texts offers the reader two possible starting points, one where poetry becomes the literary entrance, and another which begins with prose. Rather like the work itself, commissioning these texts was an exercise in discovery for me, and I hope it will be for the reader as well. And so it begins. En pointe!

Confidences / Baseline
by Ivan Cheng

Confidences / Baseline plays with the vampire novel like a dollhouse. Charac­ters who variously believe in the power of theatre and performance become entangled with grief, desire, and the un­known. What does a rehearsal come to mean when a vampire lives forever?

Baseline is the first in a series of books that fetishise nightclubs for their inaccessibility. Deluded realities antici­pate the transformative sensuality of penetration. In his second novel, artist Ivan Cheng maintains his fixation on structures for audiences between public and private.

About Ivan Cheng:
The performances of Ivan Cheng are incomplete, failing, desperate, and riddled with absence. They use his variously trained performing body, incanting texts that foreground subjectivity in monologues and dialogues. Identities of other interlocutors become embedded through rehearsal, dialogue, and entrustment. Without deluded presupposition of being for everyone, Cheng’s practice is invested in questions around publics and accessibility.

In 2020, he reconstituted past performance texts into a murder mystery about a street busker, and continues his foray into written genre with Confidences / Baseline. Past presentations of his texts have occurred at Volksbühne (Berlin), Oude Kerk (Amsterdam), Belvedere21 (Vienna), MuHKA (Antwerp), Nacionalinė dailės galerija (Vilnius), Unsound Festival (Krakow), Carriageworks (Sydney), Federation Square (Melbourne). He holds an MFA in Critical Studies (Sandberg Instituut), having previously studied at the Royal Academy of Music and Sydney Conservatorium of Music.


Thou who holds but owns not
collected by Adrienne Herr

The impetus behind this compilation was to emphasize the importance of materializing language through sound, specifically from March 2020. That orality and touch might be more intimately involved than we had realized, the voice being the touch of language.

The release on Bandcamp was on Juneteenth 2020, the (only) day that Bandcamp was donating 100% of their profits to the NAACP Legal Defense Fund. Our portion of these profits was distributed between the POC contributors and G.L.I.T.S.' fund to buy a building for housing Black trans people recently released from Rikers Island. We chose this fund to emphasize a balance between local, basic needs, and national organizations. And to speak specifically to the material support of Black trans people during this administration, and always.

No Need To Hunt — We Just Wait For The Roadkill
edited by Paul Barsch

With Stephen Lang, Anna Solal, Scott Rogers, Grace Storey, Keiu Krikmann, Michele Gabriele, and Penny Rafferty.

A growing number of birds of prey wait for roadkill on noisy highways instead of flight hunt in the wild; at least it seems that this is the case. Today's artists feed on cultural roadkill as well. The publication 'No Need to Hunt — We Just Wait for the Roadkill' is a loose compilation of commissioned texts, scientific quotes, and conversations with artists and an ornithologist to shed some light on wild assumptions about art production, animal behaviour, and their possible connections.

Agathe Bauer, Issue Zero: Picking Up Promises
conceptualized and edited by: Gabriela Acha, Romy Kießling, and Maru Mushtrieva

The title of publication series ‘Agathe Bauer’ stands for a broadly misheard hook “I’ve got the power” from a German 1990 Eurodance hit ‘The Power’ by the band Snap!. The hook that turned the song into a hit, came from Jocelyn Brown’s track ‘Love's Gonna Get You’, but neither her name nor the track appears in the credits. And, here is where Agathe Bauer comes in - a mysterious being who acquires agency through the homophonic misinterpretation of the main hook “I’ve got the power”.

In ‘Issue Zero: Picking Up Promises’ Agathe has an agenda. Nothing could be as it would have been, but she is here to trace the sources of how it has become. Agathe Bauer is here to analyze the capacity of misinterpretation to unveil asymmetric power structures in knowledge systems and by tuning into the social-political, cultural and aesthetic dimension of it.

‘Issue Zero: Picking Up Promises’ features contributions by: Gabriela Acha, [{“CIBELLE”(CAVALLI}BASTOS)], Lynn Hershman Leeson, Romy Kießling, Markues, Luzie Meyer, Maru Mushtrieva, Claudia Pagès, Ruth Wolf-Rehfeldt, Miriam Stoney, Christine Sun Kim, Eric Winkler, Miriam Yammad, Anna Zett.

Night Shifter (sold out)
Edited by Martin Kohout and Dan Meththananda

Catalysed by conversations with night-shift workers in London and Milton Keynes, this collection brings together neuroscientists, anthropologists, authors, cab-drivers, and artists to reflect on the conditions of nocturnal labour. Through each contribution, the night shift is interpreted as a displaced, ambivalent space — of disciplined protocol, of calm meditation, of queer autonomy, of hedonistic resistance, or of exhaustion beyond words.

Night Shifter features contributions from Phanuel Antwi, Ayesha Hameed, Chris James-Harvey, William Kherbek, Sophie Lapalu, Barney Lewer, Jeff Perkins, Jason Pine, Kate Porcheret, Georgina Voss, and Vlad Vyazovskiy

The Great Outdoors #2: Soft Voices & The Flat Earths 1
by Monika Janulevičiūtė and Miša Skalskis

Freshly bound “Soft Voices” and “The Flat Earths 1” further explore The Great Outdoors universe. The doublet brings about familiar yet uncharted social fabric(s) in the form of a promiscuous sci-fi.
Unitedly being driven by short attention span, they are all about the extremes. In a traction of microsecond narratives sway from being intimately close, consoling, and suddenly lifting up, unbounding internal heat and instigating shiver.

The Great Outdoors
by Monika Kalinauskaitė and Monika Janulevičiūtė

It’s 2017 and your life ISN’T a clusterfuck? Grow the fuck up. Though it’s often cloaked in reticence, the distance between what we want and what we’re offered is unravelling at the seams. Our fail-safes are falling apart. Our bodies are willed into cosmic orgies of fate, time, chance, and cum bubbles. Our universe is collapsing. It’s no time for shyness—we need all hands on dick. What will happen when we bare it all in the open for everyone to see: our loves, our legs, and our late-night dirty texts, dirty secrets, and dirty pants?
There’s a world busting open like a nut: Welcome to the Great Outdoors.

About the book:
Smoking Nurse is the first printed selection of Matt Burt's poetry. Written during the late 90s for his spoken word performances, the pieces were a continuation of his earlier writings, which he recorded on a semi-broken micro-cassette player. These primitive recordings were later sampled by Burt's musician friend Helge Sten, which is how I found out about his work a decade ago. In the early 90s, Sten (later known as Deathprod) encouraged Burt to leave his job as a farm journalist for the second smallest newspaper in Wisconsin, USA, and move to Trondheim, Norway, to study at the local art academy. In 2004, Burt started his own band (Dog & Sky) and since has written and performed spoken word, music, and short stories, as well as collaborated with Norwegian bands like Motorpsycho and Spidergawd. Susanna and the Magical Orchestra covered his song These Days on their Melody Mountain album.

Through my 20s I returned occasionally to one of Burt’s and Sten’s collaborations, the chillingly minimalistic 6’15, released on Deathprod’s eponymous album in 2004. I have been coming back to it with an attachment that has only grown stronger with time. So when I found out there was no printed book of Burt’s writing, I felt it my duty as a publisher to bring it to you.

About the book:
For a major part of mankind’s history, time was not tracked and kept, but searched for and observed. It was understood by the pace of cyclic events and rhythMs. of bodies, crops, stars and solstices. When still measured by sundials, the length of hours changed throughout the year with the different inclination of Earth’s orbit around the Sun.

But with the increasing miniaturisation and mobilisation of time-keeping devices, time entered our bodies with the calculated precision of a laser cutter, letting in valorisation of heartbeats. Metabolism got worked around and natural cycles were either ignored or ‘genetically modified’. Time got flattened in a fashion pioneered by machines operating seamlessly around the clock and with speeds beyond human comprehension.

For this publication, contributors were invited to share notes on the gap that resists the unification of body rhythms, dreaMs. and spontaneity with the tempo of machines, communication networks and calculable profit. Here is a song for the flesh under the attack of constant availability and no place to hide, information overload, omnipresent context advertising and fear of missing out.

Paulius Petraitis: The Significance of the Photographic Image in a Filmic Context

Most recent debates about the impact of digitalization on photography either advocate a rupture between analog and digital, or deny that there are any differences at all. The present project, however, wants to emphasize the continuity of several cultural aspects without denying the differences between the two ways of image-making. Paulius Petraitis’ text follows a trajetory around a less focused relation in film and photography and adds both to the so-called “classic” understanding of photographic images, as well as rejecting any rupture in the current cultural perception of photography.
