Imagine if Wendy and Tinker Bell were lesbians on the loose in the night of a metropolis, and Neverland a trendy nightclub full of lost girls.

In a fun retelling of the classic fantasy story, journalist Vange Leonel’s new book portrays the lesbian club scene with touches of romance, electronic music, philosophy, fantasy, and lots and lots of sex. Not to be missed.*

Harvested brings to the foreground five-hundred found artworks from households, studios, movie sets and other heterotopias of the adult films industry. More than two thousand adult movies were bulk harvested from p2p websites directly to a server location where they have been broken into thousands of low-quality JPG snapshots. The pool of images was submitted to crowdsourced services and a selected group of microworkers were assigned to filter them according to a consciously vague instruction: as to whether or not they displayed contemporary art. The anthology underlines the importance for a contextual, industry-specific art history, it posits by the same token, the need to activate peripheral vision in regard to scopophiliac practices. While IKEA paintings are pervasively dominant, one can find works from modern masters such as a rip-off from Fernand Leger, an unknown Joan Miro, Castle and Sun from Paul Klee but also contemporary works such as Quote, 1964, a print from Robert Rauschenberg, a series of paintings from Mark Rothko, School of Fontainebleau from Cy Twombly and even some replicas from Frank Stella and Lucio Fontana.

Harvested is a publishing coproduction from: MMMNNNRRRG (Portugal), Forlaens (Denmark), Hélice Hélas (Switzerland), Lendroit Editions (France), La Cinquieme Couche (Belgium), Topovoros (Greece), Fortepressa (Italy), Ediciones Valientes (Spain), Pachiclon (Mexico) and Bitterkomix (South Africa). 502 pages | hardcover edition CMYK (165mm x 150mm) | 2015 |

*author’s synopsis

**end-of-stock offer

Love is love, but not really. To recognise love as love we need comprehensible images. What are those contemporary images that help us identify love and how could we identify love differently, figuring it as less defined by safety procedures, measured commitment and feelings of ownership and entitlement? Playing Monogamy refuses to see personal relationships as safe havens where people can hide from the precarities of society, and instead proposes to make public life more intimate and romantic.

Through a contemporary rereading of the cult of monogamy, van Saarloos playfully queers the way in which the structure of monogamy is upheld through social convention within Western contexts. Written for more of a lay audience, the book proposes an expanded and polyamorous engagement with intimacy and sexuality as a possible alternative. Originally written in Dutch and published by De Bezige Bij, Publication Studio is excited to bring this book to an English speaking audience for the very first time. We are also happy to share that this edition of the book, translated by Liz Waters, will include a foreword by Leni Zumas, author of the US bestseller Red Clocks, and a revised preface by Simon(e), addressing how they might approach writing about nonmonogamy differently four years after the book’s first publication—and after many experiences in between.
