    MUSEUM II

    €39.00

    This richly illustrated book forms a catalogue of two consecutive years of exhibitions at the cultural centre of Strombeek, located near Brussels. Between 2014 and 2016 CC Strombeek realised five major exhibitions and solo presentations that raised broad subjects and shed new light upon how artists turn relevant content into speaking images. Amongst the projects were solo-exhibitions of Daniel Buren and Kimsooja; an expo on ecology and on the art of drawing; and a historical impression of Japanese Art.

    Next to an extended set of exhibition views, the book brings together a remarkable collection of accompanying essays by contemporary writers. New productions are elucidated by statements and reflections from the artists as almost ‘intimately whispered’ first-hand information.

    RESONANCES I, FOOD

    €20.00

    This book, an "art book on food", is based on material gathered during RESONANCES I, an ad-hoc project organized by the Joint Research Centre of the European Commission at the occasion of the Universal Exhibition EXPO 15: Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life, held in Milan. 

    The material gathered during the festival has been deconstructed and reconstructed into a new narrative that evokes the need of considering food not only as a mere scientific, technical and commercial matter of fact but also as a social, cultural and political matter of concern.

    The House of Our Fathers, Dirk Braeckman & Jan Lauwers

    €85.00

    This outstanding volume is the trace of an immersion by Dirk Braeckman in the performance The House of Our Fathers by Jan Lauwers & Needcompany at the Kunstfestspiele Herrenhausen, Hannover, 2013.
    The photographs having passed Braeckman's dark room, the images, often starting from the same negative, start to compose a universe beyond the event's registration.
    With the boldness of a painter sketching, Dirk Braeckman has set up a series of which this volume can be considered the opening dance.

    The Age of Entitlement, Sven 't Jolle

    €35.00

    This publication functions as a pocket guide to ’t Jolle’s engaging and protean practice in which he utters a humorous critique on capitalism. By fusing historical references and citations from everyday life, t’Jolle creates eloquent constellations of images and forms that often unveil disparities in our contemporary society.

    Inspired by the form of an illustrated encyclopaedia, the book adopts an unusual approach to combining image and text. Grouping the artist’s work under his poetic entry headings, it reveals how he returns to themes of migration, labour and capital under various guises. In addition to photographs from ’t Jolle’s WIELS exhibition and illustrations of earlier works, the book features three new texts: an exploration of the exhibition’s themes by its curator, Zoë Gray; an interview with the artist by art critic Koen Kleijn; and an analysis of his sketchbook practice and his decision to make all his sketchbooks available online by curator Blair French.

    Even I must understand it, Benjamin Verdonck

    €29.00

    Benjamin Verdonck (1972) is a versatile artist, an actor, a writer and a producer of theatre. Between 2015 and 2017 he realised a project 'EVEN I MUST UNDERSTAND IT' in which he demonstrates that art can redesign the public spaces and the society. The projects in 'EVEN I MUST UNDERSTAND IT' took different shapes through the process, like a representation, a lecture, an exhibition or an installation in a public space. The book is a compilation of the two year project, where all projects will be discussed thoroughly.

    Through the Looking Glass, Michel Couturier

    €38.00

    The project for this book has a programmatic quality, like a prefiguration of future works. Perhaps it also works like a mirror—like an optical machine in any case—that brings together distant things, various times, experiences, places, and forms (drawings, photos, writing, etc.), and that’s exactly what Michel Couturier set out to do. He's trying to find temporal breadth in these places, and (re)discover their meaning, which is perhaps more lost than concealed.

    Maekawa II

    €45.00

    Maekawa II presents the work of Japanese artist Tsuyoshi Maekawa (° 1936) during the 1970s. In contrast to Maekawa I, which highlights his art of the previous decade made within the directives of the Gutai Art Association, Maekawa II sheds light on the artist’s unremitting efforts to overcome the sudden death of Gutai’s leader Jiro Yoshihara in 1972. In this volume, the ceaseless innovations and impulses Maekawa instigated in his post-Gutai practice are brought to the fore. They show the profound exercises and manipulations of sewed and dyed burlap that he shaped into oftentimes highly tactile squares, lines, triangles, and a multitude of colourful yet sober wavy patterns; at times stretched over boxes or loosely draped over walls. The result is a singular exploration of fabric, texture, colour and the possibilities of the canvas at its roughest core.

    DW B 161 / 5 / 8x F.B.-D.B.-16, Dirk Braeckman

    €39.00

    In het oeuvre van Dirk Braeckman (1958, Eeklo) staat het experiment centraal, enerzijds in de registratie en anderzijds, des te meer, in de bewerking. De beelden die Braeckman capteert kennen vaak een anonieme oorsprong. Of het nu gaat om eigen opnames, found footage of een combinatie hiervan - de kunstenaar ontdoet de beelden radicaal en steevast van hun temporele en ruimtelijke context. Braeckman capteert verlaten transitzones zoals gangen, hallen en hotelkamers; plekken waar het private en het publieke elkaar overlappen. Hij is doorgaans in zijn onmiddellijke omgeving aan het werk, wat zijn foto’s een zeker autobiografisch karakter geven. De kunstenaar verkent de grenzen van zijn medium en daagt de fotografische conventies uit. De flits van de camera kaatst af op de textuur van de muren, gordijnen, tapijten en lakens. Een volledig verstilling ontstaat door de zuivere kracht van de beelden.
