    Masatoshi Masanobu

    €0.00

    Masatoshi Masanobu was born in 1911 in Suzuki City, the Prefecture of Kochi, Japan. He was a member of the Gutai movement, although his work is not as conspicuous as that of the other Gutai members, nor did he make any historic performances or paintings that stood at the forefront of the era. But in fact he was any less radical than the rest of the group. Masanobu was a rather orthodox Japanese painter, who tried to make a living as an artist while supporting himself as an art teacher. His creative approach appears much more idiosyncratic to younger viewers than the artist could ever have imagined. The proof lies in his early abstract paintings. In his essay in this book the author Kaichi Kawasaki discusses Masanobu’s works and his involvement with Gutai, which grew out of a meeting with Jiro Yoshihara after the war.

    Trying, Emilio López-Menchero

    €45.00

    This book serves as a printed memory of the oeuvre of the artist Emilio López-Menchero (°1960, Mol). It documents and illustrates a selection of exhibitions, artistic projects and public performances created in the past 25 years.

    Conceptually, the book is based on a statement by which López considers each of his actions a test against reality, an ‘attempt’. Within this context, the title of each project is consequently preceded by the prefix ‘Trying to -’; ‘Trying to situate’, ‘Trying to light up’, ‘Trying to question’,... By trying to infiltrate daily context, López-Menchero aims to generate new situations, confront with reality and contemplate on the meaning of art. Included in the book are essays and texts by Luk Lambrecht, Hans Theys and Koen Synghel.

    Da.ta (Transpositions)

    €39.00

    This book forms a catalogue of the research project 'Transpositions', instigated by Austrian artists Michael Schwab, Gerhard Eckel and David Pirrò. The project investigates the possibility of generating new auditory and visual forms based on the analysis and mathematical transformation of scientific data. In addition, the project studies whether and how these new forms are of scientific significance by asking the collaborating researchers to scientifically analyse the artistic outputs. By combining scientific and artistic values, the project contributes to the conceptual development of a space for research that is shared between art and science.

    The 'artistic data explorations' that emerged from the research project were presented and discussed within the context of the exhibition and symposium in May 2016 'DATA Rush'.

    Archivist: An Introduction to The Work of Tim Volckaert, Tim Volckaert

    €45.00

    Re-itinerating the artist's projects from his early beginnings till today, this volume offers an exhaustive overview of 'the work of Tim Volckaert'. A hybrid between canonical cataloguing and artist-driven exhibiting.

    The work of Tim Volckaert translates a world vision where duality – which characterises and dominates the history of Western thought – is central. In his drawings, sculptures and actions the image of ‘the landscape’ is often the starting point. The landscape in the qualification of ‘world space’ that serves as a backdrop to comment on the struggle of man with his environment.

    Woestijngetijden, Carla Swerts

    €25.00

    Deze publicatie vormt de neerslag van het doctoraatsonderzoek van Carla Swerts (°1992) waarin zij poogt het westerse beeld van het Midden-Oosten – de Oriënt – te nuanceren door een alternatieve verbeelding van het gebied aan te reiken. Swerts neemt hierbij stelling in t.o.v. de positie van de kunstenaar, die binnen deze context vraagt om een actief engagement met het gebied, geworteld in de ervaring zelf.
