Self-made crowdfunding: Calin Kruse – You scared the shit out of me, so I’m leaving

About the book
Erotic fairs are probably the only events where all social classes and ages are gathered in the same place.

The visitors – exactly from the hick town where all the pictures were shot – brim over with bigotry. Because on one hand there is the hypocritical tolerance and openness at night, the meat market – and the gazes! – under the cover of eroticism. On the other hand the smooth smugness reveals in the daytime – lived family idyll and dominical church going included.

It is all about schizo provincialism. The abandon and unleashing of the bourgeois which seem enormous at first, in closer inspection keeps exactly within the defined limits. Because in this loud, piercing, adrenalized carnival of drives, the excess is planned. Like that everything is in best order. In the garden plot, on the parking lane, in the frontyard – and in fact also on the erotic fair.

Please note: the book in the preview is a dummy. The final book may be slightly different (which means: even better!), but still quite similar.

About the crowdfunding

This is where I hope to receive a small or big support (in exchange for this and that, of course! see below) for producing the book – printing and binding. The book is limited to 100 copies.
The goal is gathering 2000 € for covering the printing / production costs.
The self-made crowdfunding campaign will run from June 1st until July 1st, 2014. If the project won’t be funded until July 1st, you will receive a full refund on July 2nd, 2014. Otherwise, the book will be produced within one month and everything will be shipped by the beginning of August.

Updates
25.06. Yeah, we did it! Thank you very much to all supporting the campaign and making this book happen! There are still 5 days left for pledging, so if you’d like to receive one of the goodies, please don’t hesitate.
04.07. The book is at the printer, a first dummy should arrive next week!

Why self-made?
I’m having loads of ideas for photo books, and also a few finished projects in the drawer (like this one), but not having the financial background for making them; that became quite frustrating over the time – that’s why I decided to go for a self-made crowdfunding campaign.
And why self-made? Because I think it’s easier, closer to the people, and more direct.
If you have any question, please just get in touch or write a comment!

And one last thing: a huge THANK YOU for your interest in my project!

Support!

Dear all,
“dienacht” #1 was first published about 6 years ago; 13 regular issues and 3 special issue have been published, and I still enjoy a lot discovering new and older works and making the magazine. “dienacht” has fans all around the world and many older issues are completely sold out.

But one thing never changed: “dienacht” is still a non-profit one-man-magazine, and when I say “non-profit”, I mean: I can hardly pay the printing costs (it’s printed local). Considering the periodicity, circulation of only 1000 (numbered!) copies, low selling price and high printing costs (and not to talk about the time and energy required for doing the magazine), “dienacht” will never become a commercial magazine. Still, it would be a bit relaxing not to thinking every time about how and if I can gather enough funding for paying for the production of the next issue.

There are many ways to supporting “dienacht”: write a review if you have the opportunity, or recommend dienacht to friends having this opportunity; buy one or several issues (“dienacht” is a timeless portfolio magazine); sell “dienacht” in your bookshop, gallery, store, café, …; advertise in a printed issue or on the website/blog; or spread the word about “dienacht” and share this. I’m happy about every kind of support.

Thank you,
calin

Neu im Shop: Klebstoff Magazin #5

Zwar steht diese Ausgabe unter keinem genauen Thema, aber sie ist gespickt mit Totenköpfen, expliziten Bildern und okkulten Beiträgen. Deshalb gibt es das Heft nur eingeschweißt, um alle Unschuldigen und Schwachen zu schützen. Seid ihr stark genug?
Denkt daran: Sticker sind ein Sport, ein kleines Manifest, ein Werkzeug und ganz bestimmt nicht nur für Kinder. Lasst die Aufkleber nicht im Heft – verklebt sie überall!

Laia Abril: Thinspiration

After the shock comes the anger. It is disturbing when you see in real-time how lively human bodies dissolve into nothingness.

Laia Abril collected internet pictures of women who commemorate anorexia and photograph themselves doing it. She also collected instructions on how to get extra skinny, and posts in internet forums which demonstrate and document with what “lightness” and how baseless the young (most of the time) women addict themselves to this cult of losing weight. That in principle – in extreme cases – their vita is slanted towards destroying knowingly their bodies.

Thinspiration however is not a book aiming at shocking. The arrangement is elaborate and excellently realized. The pop up sites display “more”, and so you feel like diving into a world – exposing yourself to it – whose abyss you had not known before and did not want to know.

Gabriel Orłowski: Anti-accent

dienacht Publishing · Edition proudly presents Anti-accent, a limited book (100 copies) by Gabriel Orłowski, every copy arrives with a numbered Print!

“(…) I don’t really want to know whether the characters read beatniks, nihilists, right-wing journalists, liberal gibberish or SF writers. Neither do I feel the need to identify them with the music they listen to. We can guess that they probably don’t listen to club music, for example (although they seem to enjoy the disco ball). (…) I think that Anti-accent, even though it portrays people involved in the ‘punk scene’, with all their artistic influences, this aforementioned ‘fall’ of the ideas has a marginal meaning. These photographs ‘are punk’ more than they ‘show punk’. They seem to rather invite you to ‘punk’, than guide you through all the sweaty rehearsal rooms. ‘Punk’ understood as a certain idea, an ethos, a rebellion, showing your bruised ass off to the middle-class conventions. ‘Punk’ that pushes you into action, that has you co-create a community. So, not to repeat anything, Anti-accent rather is a rehearsal room, than shows you one. A rehearsal room that’s familiar to anyone, who doesn’t come back home before the evening cartoons. These photographs seem to come alive with whatever we put into them ourselves.” – Mateusz Romanowski

Gabriel Orłowski was born in 1989; he lives in Warsaw, Poland, and is a member of Merkabah and Acid Lindgren, experimental hardcore bands.
