    Published on the occasion of the exhibition 'Zero in New York' at Sperone Westwater, NY, 2008.

    This opulently illustrated catalogue offers a unique English compendium to the Dusseldorf-based Zero movement, which went on to attract an international cadre of collaborators and affiliates including Nanda Vigo, Yayoi Kusama, Yves Klein, Jean Tinguely, Tsuruko Yamazaki, Arman, and many others. Its history is traced from its immediate beginnings in 1957 to its dissolution in 1966, only one year after New York's Museum of Modern Art exhibited 'The Responsive Eye', in which many artists of the Zero avant-garde took part.

    This publication and the accompanying video together comprise the 'Oops Wrong Planet' project by Anouk De Clercq.

    Anouk De Clercq investigates the interrelationships between the video image and other art forms.

In this way she unites text, image, architecture and music in three-dimensional installations.

    Tight: Repeating Boredom / Hall / Privaat, Rita Mc Bride, Koenraad Dedobbeleer

    Part artist book, part exhibition catalogue published as a component of three joint exhibitions by Koenraad Dedobbeleer and Rita McBride: 'Tight: Repeating Bordedom' at FRAC Bourgogne, Dijon (21.06–12.09.2008), 'Hall', Kunsthalle Bern (04.10–30.11.2008) and 'Privaat', Mu.ZEE, Oostende (24.01–01.03.2009).





    The book consists of 2 contributions by the artists and a photographic documentation of the exhibitions.



    Both Rita Mc Bride and Koenraad Dedobbeleer are artists who investigate the relation between architecture and institutional and social context, and the confrontation of their strangely connected/disconnected pratices has resulted in 3 highly intelligent shows and a book collaboration with MER.

    Dark Room, Frederik Bruylant





    The first hardcover part of the work consists of a series of polaroid pictures, taken in Dark Rooms and Sex clubs. Bruylant chooses not to depict the visitors in action, but focusses on the surroundings. We see parking lots, dressing rooms, staircases, walls,... The second poster edition portrays a more human angle, forming a surreel tableau vivant of the sex club underworld.

    Raphaël Buedts

    A comprehensive overview of Raf Buedts' work. The book encompasses 450 images.





    Published on the occasion of the retrospective exhibition of his work at SMAK, Gent (05.09–15.11.2009).



    As an artist, Raphaël Buedts (1946–2009) discretely built up an impressive oeuvre, drifting with ease between sculpture, drawing and painting. His subtle shifts between abstraction and tactility and between function and form demonstrate an uncommon lucidity and rare poetic skill.
