David und seine Frau Anna könnten ein ganz normales Paar mit ganz normalen Vorlieben sein, hätte David nicht schon seit langem den Wunsch, seiner Frau mit einem anderen Mann zuzusehen.

"Anna und ich und unser Hausfreund" erzählt in mehreren Teilen die Geschichte eines ganz normalen Paares, das über einen Besuch in einem Swingerclub zum Wifesharing mit einem festen Hausfreund kommt. Teil 6: Als David sich mit ein paar alten Freunden verabredet, nutzt Matthias die Gelegenheit, sich mit Anna alleine zu treffen. Widerwillig stimmt David dieser Idee zu, merkt jedoch schnell, dass er sein Einverständnis besser nicht gegeben hätte. So verbringt er einen Abend auf einem schmalen Grat zwischen Lust und Eifersucht. Dieses Buch beinhaltet explizite Beschreibungen von sexuellen Handlungen und ist daher nicht für minderjährige Personen geeignet.

For over 20 years Berlin-based photographer and filmmaker Armin Linke (b. 1966) has been photographing the effects of globalization, the transformation of infrastructures and the networking of post-industrial society via digital information and communication technologies. Following his recent exhibition in Milan, this substantial publication features images selected by a variety of theorists and scientists chosen by Linke. The images selected by Israeli theorist, curator and filmmaker Ariella Azoulay, French sociologist and philosopher Bruno Latour, Austrian artist/curator/media theorist Peter Weibel, American architectural theorist Mark Wigley, and British geologist Jan Zalasiewicz open up Linkes work to a variety of new readings. Linkes photographs depict the modern world as a massive profusion of data, where the material infrastructures, consisting of computer centers, data highways and server rooms, are largely invisible. A research affiliate at the MIT Visual Arts Program, Linke has exhibited extensively worldwide including the Storefront, NY, and KW Berlin.

History of the Abderites
Author: Christoph Martin Wieland
Publisher: Lehigh University Press
Christoph Martin Wieland's comic novel History of the Abderites (1774-81) is, in its author's own words, a "work that was written to entertain all intelligent people and to admonish and chastise all fools." It is thus a part of that tradition in European literature that includes Sebastian Brant's The Ship of Fools (1494) and the Praise of Folly (1509) by Erasmus. The target of Wieland's wit and humor is the provinciality, lack of taste, pedantry, backwardness, bigotry, narrow-mindedness, ignorance, and sodden contentment with things as they are, which he found in people all around him. But instead of attacking the follies of his German contemporaries directly, he sets his novel in the small Thracian city-state of Abdera in the fifth century B.C. This novel is one of the sprightliest literary achievements of the Enlightenment in Germany, and reveals that Wieland was a kindred spirit of Henry Fielding and Laurence Sterne. Each of the five divisions, or "Books," of History of the Abderites conveys a different aspect of life in Abdera, and the author allows his readers to draw whatever parallels they may perceive between what goes on in this ancient backwoods community and life in contemporary Germany. The novel opens with the return of Democritus after many years from an extended tour abroad. He is the main character in the first part of the book, and combines the traits of his historical counterpart with those of an eighteenth-century empirical scientist, along with the moral attributes of the ideal gentleman. The Abderites think Democritus a very odd sort of fellow and cannot at all comprehend what they consider his outlandish notions about a great variety of subjects. Soon it is quite clear that Democritus is everything that they are not. Moreover, his having come home with a black mistress seems to support their conviction that there is something wrong in his head, for they fail entirely to understand how anyone who is not white could be considered beautiful. In the Fourth Book, the most renowned and hilarious part of the novel, acute civil strife over a trial concerning the shadow of an ass threatens the very existence of the little republic. The last book tells of the decline and fall of Abdera. But in the "Key" to his novel, Wieland asserts that the Abderites, an "indestrucible, immortal tribe," never died out. They fled from their old home to live dispersed among all other peoples of the world. This is the reason, Wieland says, that although he had thought he was writing about fools in ancient Thrace, some people came to believe that he was describing his contemporaries. Of this he is clearly minded not to disabuse them.
