    MUSEUM III. 2.1, Sven Augustijnen & Sammy Baloji

    Deze publicatie documenteert de tentoonstelling van Sven Augustijnen (°1970, Mechelen) en Sammy Baloji (°1978, Lubumbashi) in het Cultuurcentrum Strombeek in het najaar van 2018.



    De kunst van Sven Augustijnen breidt zich al geruime tijd uit tot thema's zoals wapenindustrie, ideologie en kolonialisme, invloed en macht. Augustijnen graaft in de donkere geschiedenis van onze relatie met de voormalige kolonie. Hij maakte naam met zijn in film gezette onderzoek "Spectres" over de tragische dood van/moord op Patrice Lumumba. Augustijnen kocht een quasivolledige set van het vijftiger jaren magazine "Europe Magazine" dat hij oordeelkundig en betekenisvol openvouwt in een monumentale vitrine, zodat de tijd van de Koude Oorlog, kolonialisme en wapenwedloop in beeld en tot de verbeelding van de bezoeker komt. Vanuit de onaangeroerde, druktechnisch perfect geconserveerde magazines – die nu documenten zijn geworden – weet Sven Augustijnen een indringend tijdsbeeld te evoceren dat tot op vandaag nog steeds niet is verwerkt.



    Sammy Baloji, die pendelt tussen Brussel en Lubumbashi, was aanwezig op documenta 14 in Kassel en Athene met video en sculpturen die via hun symbolische geladenheid (koper) de inhoud letterlijk laten spreken vanuit de materie waarmee "wij" rijk zijn geworden. Hij maakte afdrukken in koper van luxetextiel uit musea in Brussel en Kopenhagen, toonde originele koperen Katangakruisjes en wist met een indringende video een beeld te geven van hoe koper wordt gesmolten, bulk-klaar voor de globale markt. Daarmee wist hij een reflectie neer te zetten over grondstoffen en de manier waarop ook immateriële diensten zoals educatie, godsdienst en cultuur werden ingezet om de houdbaarheid van de kolonisering bij de bevolking te continueren.

    List, Stefaan Dheedene

    This first monograph on conceptual artist Stefaan Dheedene (°1975, Belgium) brings an overview of 20 years of artistic practice. The book can be considered as an instrument or handbook, that was created in order to conceive a mental and fysical space in which the oeuvre can be compressed and interrelationships can be exposed. This monograph was structured by Dheedene himself, by the use of eight named lists. This principle makes the underlying artistic research visible and creates the possibility of a multiple approach, without falling into corrections and forced interpretations and contextualization.

    Aphasia, Jelena Jureša

    Aphasia is a book that is published at the occasion of a filminstallation and exhibition with the same title by the artist Jelena Jureša. As a medical term, ‘aphasia’ refers to the inability to speak or to find the right words. Jureša’s new film consists of three chapters, each focusing on the collective silence surrounding crime and the compartmentalisation of historical events, and tracing the line between Belgian colonialism, Austrian anti-Semitism and the wars in Yugoslavia.With Aphasia, Jureša not only digs for the roots and preconditions for a state sponsored violence, but also for the reasons why such collective crimes keep being repeated. The film zooms in on objectivisation and dehumanisation processes, among other themes, while at the same time shedding light on the roles played by photography and film. Aphasia is a work of art about racism and intolerance, exposing the banality and triviality of evil. The films challenges us to look (literally) more attentively and to question our own individual and collective position. Aphasia is a call, not for punishment or outrage about the crimes committed during colonial times, the Holocaust or the atrocities in Bosnia during the Yugoslavian wars. Rather, it is a call to break the collective silence, and to actually look at the blind spots that seem to have become a fundamental part of our European identity. Aphasia begins where everything else ends— precisely because the artistic imagination can offer different perspectives, solace and justice.

  • Cylinder #9, Joris Van de Moortel

    Cylinder #9, Joris Van de Moortel

    Comics were Van de Moortel’s first love: his first drawings, his first stories; a dwelling of fantasies and a lack of reality: he devored them as a child. His first publications with MER., the Cylinder Series, is not a real comic book series, but the idea is based on the structure of it. It fits perfectly to get Van de Moortel’s work published. The sketches, the colouring, the humour that feels close to the practice: it’s a work in itself and not just a representation of images. The artist prints one new Cylinder issue on the occasion of each new project or exhibition. Each cahier has a unique design and cover. Each will be published separately at first; becoming one book after 10 editions that will be published as a whole. Every edition is a new adventure having the same basic players, added, transformed. It’s one big playground: like a show. This is the sequel to Cylinder # 8. It is the ninth issue of the Cylinder Series.

    Other Things Visible, Michel Mazzoni

    Situated as it is at the very turn of the century, and questioning from the outset the inflation and desubstantialisation involved in the hegemony of images, Michel Mazzoni’s photographic practice is an image factory or rather an image-thinking factory. An image which outflanks it and decompartmentalises it in multifarious ways, from its installation in situ to its editorial deployment. An image qua cultural artefact in its capacity to link us to the world in a shared sense of perpetual present and of circular time. An image qua material reality pushed to the limits, based on the phenomenology of its perception, hence on its intrinsic quality of enigma. 



    This book is published on the occasion of the exhibition 'Other Things Visible' by Michel Mazzoni at Botanique, Brussels in the spring of 2019.

    MUSEUM III. 2.3, Anetta Mona Chişa & Lucia Tkáčová



     Deze publicatie documenteert de tentoonstelling van de Roemeense Anetta Mina Chişa (°1975) & Slowaakse Lucia Tkáčová (°1977) in het Cultuurcentrum Strombeek in het voorjaar van 2018. De kunstenaars studeerden samen af aan de Academie voor Schone Kunsten en Design in van Bratislava en werken samen sinds 2000. Echt in de kijker liepen ze met hun bijdrage voor het Roemeense Paviljoen op de Biënnale van Venetië in 2011 waar ze tal van vanzelfsprekendheden als heilige huisjes aankaartten van en in de benepen en op status en luxe beluste kunstwereld (én markt). Ze namen in dat officiële paviljoen ook de autoritaire rol van de curator op de korrel die zich haast als een kunstenaar de kunst toe-eigent bij het opzetten van een coherent curateel verhaal. Zij werken met alle media, van porselein via video tot performances, over postcommunistische thema's en tussenin de hoop die er heerste na de val van de Muur van Berlijn (1989) en de (nog) na smeulende ontgoocheling en verbittering. Op een handige manier ontluisteren en demythologiseren Anetta & Lucia het valse laagje ideologie dat zich nestelt tussen bijvoorbeeld lage en hoge cultuur. Rollenpatronen tot zelfs tips voor wanhopige Oost-Europese vrouwen passeerden de revue. Anetta & Lucia maken een nieuw voorstel waarin, vanuit een oprecht dealen met de rechten van de mens en (specifiek) de plaats van vrouwen, thema’s aan bod komen zoals de onzichtbare krachten en machten die ons leven op een onzichtbare wijze leiden en begeleiden.
