Focussing on a nexus of artists surrounding Antonia Baehr and Werner Hirsch, More Than One Tie looks through the key hole of affinities into the artistic practices of Ida Wilde, Sabine Ercklentz, Isabell Spengler, Arantxa Martinez, Marc Siegel, Andrea Neumann and Lindy Annis. The publication contains several online essays; a myriad of video, text, sound and images with these artists and how they care to organize (social) relations, make them productive, reflect upon them, criticize them.

Launch on 10 April 2014 at Beursschouwburg in Brussels.

Concept & Editor: Tom Engels
Co-editor: Tessa Theisen
Advisor: Myriam Van Imschoot

Composed and signed by the visual artist and choreographer Julien Bruneau, Strata is the first artist publication on Oral Site. It is an invitation to wander around in Bruneau’s universe, where reflections on practice meet stories, images, dances and sounds that carve a personal mythology out of cultural readymades. Bruneau also turns Oral Site’s software into an artistic medium, exploring and expanding its formal possibilities. Strata is introduced by Jeroen Peeters in a Preface.

Launch on 29 May 2014 at Het Veem Theater in Amsterdam.

Concept & editing: Julien Bruneau
Editorial dialogue: Jeroen Peeters and Myriam Van Imschoot
