Tacita Dean (Canterbury, England, 1965) was educated as a painter, but she makes drawings, photography and sound, and she is better known for her 16 and 35 mm films. Her work searches the connection between past and present, fiction and reality; she maps the objective and private worlds, tracing the complex interaction between them.

Captivated by the sea as a leitmotiv, Dean approaches it in her work as linked to the sublime; its elemental force represent human emotions: turbulent and indomitable. Particularly moved by Donald Crowhurst's tragic tale -who pretended to sail alone and scaleless around the seas aboard of his Teignmouth Eletron ship- Dean raised the research project presented in this book -first time translated into Spanish-, exploring her personal implication in Crowhurst's journey, giving expression to her feelings and ideas, besides the images of the ship, captured at Caiman Brac.

For more than two years Alias is a publishing initiative by Damián Ortega, and has published in this time eleven titles on and by some of the most relevant contemporary artists in Spanish, like: Marcel Duchamp, John Cage, Robert Filliou, Jimmie Durham, Lawrence Weiner, Dan Graham, Robert Smithson, Gabriel Orozco, Hélio Oiticica and Cildo Meireles. Each edition, similar in format, has an individual identity, suggested both by the content as by the original presentetion of each book, as Alias is thought to make twin books, aka books, or nickname books.

Alias is a disclosure and non profit project:

STICK' EM UP: The Sticker Club: 11/03/2010, 4:00 pm

Stick'em Up; El Club del Sticker busca crear una "microtopía" informal; un espacio libre para crear e interactuar en la esfera pública. En Stick'em Up; The Sticker Club, gente de todas las edades y de diferentes contextos son animados a volverse miembros del club. Los requerimientos son: asistir a una reunión y dibujar tres stickers, la primera se puede conservar, la segunda se intercambia con otro miembro del club, y la tercera se queda en el Sticker Club para su archivo. La idea es que los miembros adhieran sus stickers donde quieran, le tomen una foto y describan su localización para documentarla y mapearla, junto con todas las demás. El Sticker Club toma lugar en muy variados sitios, normalmente no utilizados para la producción de arte, involucrando a la gente para desarrollar ideas y transformarlas en stickers. En esencia, el Sticker Club y sus eventos Stick'em Up, son un programa público que alienta a personas comunes y corrientes para que lleven su arte a las masas.

Stick'em Up; The Sticker Club seeks to create a “microtopia” of sorts; a free space to create and interact in the public sphere. In Stick’em Up; The Sticker Club, people of all ages and of all different backgrounds are encouraged to join as members. The requirements: make three stickers every time you meet-up – the first to keep for yourself, a second to trade with someone else in the club, and a third for the Sticker Club to keep for documentation. The idea is that members install their stickers anywhere they would like, and then take a photo and list the described location in order to document and map. The sticker club takes field trips to spaces that aren’t normally used as art making sites, and sets up shop – encouraging people and helping them develop their ideas into stickers. In essence, the Stick’em UP; The Sticker Club is a public art program that encourages participation from everyday people and brings their art to the masses.
