Diedrich Diederichsen on Agnieszka Kurant.
On the occasion of the exhbition Agnieszka Kurant: exformation at Stroom Den Haag
When we first designed 1+1+1=3 for Culturgest, we already knew it was going to be a series of exhibitions within a strict format, with an accompanying series of publications, also in a strict format. We’re really happy with how the second volume came out, featuring Bernard Voïta, Hermann Pitz and Michael Snow.
As previously, each artist either contributes a completely new work for the book or reveals parts of the process leading up to the works in the exhibition: 1+1+1=3 Vol. II might be the most complete account of Hermann Pitz’s Sofortbilder today; Bernard Voïta shows us a fantastic herbarium of emotional peaks, and Michael Snow was inspired by 1+1+1’s blank separator spreads to make a series if Illuminations of the previous book.
Available from Culturgest.
We’re happy about the launch of the ninth and tenth books in Octavo publicaties’ series, Boris Groys’s Logica van de verzameling and the essay collection Boris Groys in Context: The series design was conceived to accommodate the development, and we’re happy to see it performing well.
We’re proud to announce the first issue of Peter Biľak’s new Works That Work magazine.
We’re working on the design of Works that Work, a new magazine of unexpected creativity, founded by Peter Biľak.

During the development we noticed a curious little bug in Google Chrome:The CSS-property
text-rendering:optimizeLegibilityswitches on font kerning in browsers that support it, but Chrome seemed to have problems with calculating which parts of the page should get a roll-over effect:
It's a small bug, and other browsers seem not affected by this, but it really bothered us. So for the moment, it's
/* text-rendering:optimizeLegibility; */
Update September 2013: When after a year, nothing had changed, we started to lose hope, but we just now had to check again — The bug is gone from Chrome v.29, finally.
