    Stillness, Nik Gaffney

    €40.00

    Stillness is a visual wandering, a series of stills from a world in incessant motion. Nik Gaffney's photographs, taken over the course of one lunar year, are observations on materiality and time at turns ethereal, evocative and timeless. In Stillness, organic abstraction emerges from algorithmic concreteness. Page after page, a non-linear filmic sequence appears through juxtaposition and transitions, a flow punctuated with meticulous effortlessness. Somewhere between a documentary, a study or an artwork, the book itself is a fleetingly material object, a simple call to partake in the radical act of noticing.

    Mining Section (Bureau des mines), Allan Sekula

    €15.00

    In mines and ports across the world, human labor sustains our industrial and globalized economies. Allan Sekula imagined and set out to realize an artwork, The Dockers' Museum, which makes the struggles of miners, dockworkers, and seafarers visible through networks of metonymic objects that embody these workers' imaginaries. The collaborative notes gathered in this publication accompany the presentation of the "Mining Section (Bureau des mines)" of The Dockers' Museum at the Anatomical Theater in Leuven in the Fall of 2016.

    Figures of Dissent, Cinema of Politics / Politics of Cinema

    €25.00

    How can the relation between cinema and politics be thought today? This question was the starting point for Figures of Dissent, a project consisting of an extensive series of discussions, dialogues and screenings that were organized by Debuysere over the course of four years. Some of the thoughts and doubts that have been simmering as a result of these encounters were expressed in the form of letters. This manuscript assembles six of those letters, addressed to fellow filmmakers, artists, producers and theorists. They are six tentative forms of study that blend various impressions, associations and digressions in an attempt to make sense of this conundrum that has been haunting the past century: how does the art of moving shadows pertain to the realities of political struggle?

    Toshio Shibata Laurent Ney

    €60.00

    This publication presents hundred photographs taken by Japanese artist Toshio Shibata (°1949), from the bridges and special structures designed by architect engineer Laurent Ney (°1964). In this book, both artist and designer meet; offering two worlds and two media that come together. For both creators, context is the starting point of their work, whether it is context as natural surroundings or in a broader sense. In Shibata’s work, Ney recognizes themes that inspire him whilst in the process of designing: the space, the time, geometry, materiality and poetry.  But it is surely the ‘outsider’s’ viewpoint that makes Shibata’s images of Ney’s constructions so intriguing. They reveal a multi-layered reality that can be understood at multiple levels.

    Mystic Transport, Gülsün Karamustafa & Koen Theys

    €25.00

    Mystic Transport is an exhibition project initiated through a chance encounter between two artists, Koen Theys and Gülsün Karamustafa. Both are very much intertwined with the city they live in; Brussels and Istanbul and integrate visible and invisible materials and remnants from their immediate surroundings within their practice. Intrigued by religious parades, the hamam, war propaganda, gender issues and the entertainment industry, Theys and Karamustafa use these phenomena as starting points for their video work, installations and performances. In doing so, both artists sketch a critical portrait of the society and culture in which we live and reside, reflecting on cultural canons and differing socio-economic realities. Mystic Transport thus results in unique crossovers.

    Ryuji Tanaka

    €45.00

    Ryuji Tanaka’s (1927 – 2014, Japan) work is rooted in the Japanese tradition of nihon-ga, marked by flat spatial expressions lacking in physical depth, fixed motifs and natural pigments dissolved in animal glue applied to paper or silk. At the same time, his work also matches the ideologies of two avant-garde groups of postwar Japanese art: the Pan-real Art Association and Gutai. The first actively introduced Western avant-garde expressions within the Japanese tradition. This is especially visible in the surrealistic works of Tanaka. In a later stage, his works evolve towards abstraction, when Tanaka becomes part of Gutai. This publication comes out on the occasion of the exhibition Ryuji Tanaka, which runs from March 10th till April 30th of 2016 at the Axel Vervoordt Gallery.

    Hacking Velo, Ief Spincemaille

    €20.00

    In February 2015 the Belgian artist and philosopher Ief Spincemaille set up a temporary second atelier at the workshop of Velo, a socio-economic working place that recycles old bicycles in Leuven, Belgium. During a period of 9 months he hacked the existing production line and recycled old paintings instead of bicycles. He applied the repetitional production process of disassembling, storing and reassembling to works of art. He re-used the raw materials of the 284 recycled paintings for the recreation of 5 pioneering works in modern art history by a.o. Damien Hirst, Ellsworth Kelly and Kasimir Malevich.

    Musée de l'inconnu, Ief Spincemaille

    €15.00

    Musée l'inconnu is a temporarily established museum at the residence Sint-Maartensdal in Leuven, Belgium. The museum was built by the artist Ief Spincemaille in order to reflect upon the idea of the museum as 'Mouseion', the Greek word that refers to the temple of the Muses, who inspire art and science. In the same line the artist gets his inspiration by the place and the people visiting his self-made museum. The conversations, relations and friendships that were built in the course of the two weeks in which the museum was open, served as material for new work. Reflexions upon his experiences where carefully written down. This publication is a poetic journey throughout the absurdity and the difficulties that occurred, intervening in the community of this residence.
