F.R. David

F.R. David is a biannual journal published by De Appel Arts Center in Amsterdam featuring a wide array of artists and writers and a different loose theme for each issue. 

Spring 2019, Black Sun is edited in conversation with Krist Gruijthuijsen, currently the director of KW Institute for Contemporary Art in Berlin, to accompany the exhibitions ‘David Wojnarowicz Photography & Film 1978–1992’, ‘Reza Abdoh’, and ‘TIES, TALES AND TRACES: Dedicated to Frank Wagner, Independent Curator (1958–2016)’. The issue departs from Wojnarowicz’s grief at the loss of loved ones during the 1980s AIDS crisis and anger at the US government for its wilful neglect. It assembles a selection of various gendered and sexual positions, all seeking support, love, and intimacy in linguistic, architectural, and bodily structures while under threat of collapse.

Softcover, perfect-bound, 264 pages, 4.75 inches x 7.5 inches, English, Kw Institute/Uh Books 2019.

Autumn 2018, What I Mean is... examines the impartation of meaning through visible language, whether informative, instructive, transformative, narrative, or other. Contributions include Peter Culley’s restructuring of a botanical text as lyrical poetry, a vignette by Octavia E. Butler, a preface to ‘The Art of Science Writing’ by Worsley and Mayer, Daniel Victor’s report on an Oxford comma dispute, a wall text for ‘High Speed Geology’ at Museum für Naturkunde, ‘In the Shadow of the American Dream’ by David Wojnarowicz, ‘26 Theses on Craft’ by Sharon H. Poggenpohl, a report Charles and Ray Eames drew up for the Indian government to promote quality in small industries, and much more.

Softcover, perfect-bound, 224 pages, 4.75 inches x 7.5 inches, Kw Institute/Uh Books 2018.

Spring 2018, Flurry is the fifteenth release. According to editor Will Holder, ‘Flurry’ came about after being asked to propose ten books for acquisition by the Gerrit Rietveld Academie library in Amsterdam. He gave a talk about that selection, for which he preferred reproducing original material over commentary, and wanted to allow others to speak. The outcome was a reading back and forth between the ten books. It soon became clear that this reading would readily lend itself to an issue of ‘F.R. David’. Associated material came up in the process of transcription. Included are writings by Emmie McLuskey, Krist Gruijthuijsen, Bitsy Knox, Maurin Dietri

Softcover, perfect-bound, 210 pages, 4.75 inches x 7.5 inches, Kw Institute/Uh Books 2018.

Autumn 2017, Recognition is the fourteenth release. It features “The Labor of the Inhuman” by Reza Negarestani, “Vaster than Empires and More Slow” by Ursula K. Le Guin, poems by Ralph Hotere, and “The Companion Species Manifesto” by Donna Haraway. Further, Zoe Todd investigates indigenous relationships to fish in Canada, while Ayesha Siddiqi writes about the growth of online communities for marginalized groups, plus contributions by Aurelia Armstrong, Kosen Ohtsubo, Ian White, Eileen Myles, Marcel Broodthaers, Witold Gombrowicz, Ian McCammon, Noam Chomsky, Gilles Deleuze, and more!
