    Heads and Tails. Tales and Bodies

    The publication Heads and Tails. Tales and Bodies: Engraving the Human Figure from Antiquity to the Early Modern Period, is the result of an exhibition that took place at The Pushkin Museum of Moscow, from July 6th until September 30th, 2016. Heads and Tails displays and discusses extremely rare numismatic, glyptic and archaeological artifacts that have only very rarely been presented to a broader audience. Hence this publication is an impressive gallery of masterpieces of miniature sculpture, such as coins, medals, plaquettes and statuettes, in which man always takes pride of place. The perception and depiction of the human figure by artists of different periods, the development of artistic styles, and the close links between the iconographic repertoire and mythology, religion, history, literature and philosophy of the Greater Greek World are themes well reflected by international specialists in this publication. The publication was made possible through the combined efforts of the Benaki Museum in Athens and the Greek Welfare Foundation for Social and Cultural Affairs (KIKPE).

    Great-hearted all friend horizonno matter what my line, Bart Van Dijck

    Bart Van Dijck (B, °1974) creates video’s, drawings, sculptures, installations and documentaries. His work, a constant exploration of identity, originates out of a fascination for domestic and foreign folklore. His research often involves youth- and subcultures, which are known for their unique visual cultures which allow for diverse and at times conflicting influences to unite naturally. Van Dijck recognizes in these subcultures a contemporary counterpart to traditional folklore. Through his work he analyses how symbolism and rituals determine the identity of such groups. Van Dijck also focuses closely on the subconsciousness. He wants to reach out to the invisible and make it tangible for the audience. The book is published on the occasion of the exhibition 'The weather was good' in De Warande (Turnhout, B) from December 5th til February 22nd 2015.

    Shooting Range, Photography & The Great War

    "Shooting Range: Photography and the Great War" focuses on "the image" of the First World War in photography and film. What are the most important roles that modern visual media played in the course of the conflict? How were photography and film first deployed on a broad scale in the interest of propaganda? How were combat and death made (in)visible? And what remained outside the frame?

    GNI_RI_2014, Nick Ervinck

    Fostering a cross-pollination between the digital and the physical, Nick Ervinck (°1981, Belgium) explores the boundaries between various media. As a pioneer in 3D-printed sculptures the artist takes a vanguard position in the field of digital technology while at the same time his works hold numerous references to the tradition of sculpture and architecture. This first monograph focuses on this tension between innovation and tradition and gives an inside to the artist’s abundant archive. The concepts body, building, history and nature that are crucial for the artist’s oeuvre, are the leitmotifs in the book. The authors explore Ervinck’s work from different angles while a great quantity of images show the genesis of form, some of his most succesfull works and futuristic ideas that till this day were impossible to create.

    We Are All Flesh, Berlinde De Bruyckere & J.M. Coetzee

    Berlinde De Bruyckere’s work prompts the viewer to respond. That is why it has a particular appeal for writers of literature: they are fascinated by the compositions of distorted parts of humans and horses that refer to horror and comfort, to a cruel death and the sublime. De Bruyckere empties the bodies. Through holes, the public notices the darkness of a world inside that both appeals and repels. There is space around her work that resonates and in which writers can indulge in creativity—not by writing about objects, but by juxtaposing the work with creative texts. The author does not remove meanings of the work by trying to explain it, but rather adds to its meaning by responding to art with art. Nobel Prize winner J.M. Coetzee rises to this challenge: together with De Bruyckere he has chosen fragments from his impassioned and unsettling novels that are full of great beauty. Thus, the two present a composition of texts and images that from inside illuminates the dark world of their work.

    After Empire, Herman Asselberghs & Dieter Lesage

    This book is published on the occasion of the group show ‘Blijven Kijken’, an exhibition curated by Pieter Van Bogaert at M-Museum on (dis)appearing images and the boundaries of representation. Central in the exhibition is the 2010 video After Empire by Herman Asselberghs. This video is a tentative reflection on positive forms of collective resistance against war as well as emancipatory representations concerned with it. This publication considers a possible alternative for an iconic image drawn from our collective memory: a hijacked plane hitting the second tower of the WTC in 2001, New York. The book proposes an alternative for our collective history: the 15th of February 2003. On that day 30 million citizens across the planet marched against the unilateral decision by the American government to start a pre-emptive war against Iraq under the auspices of “the war on terrorism”. 2/15 was the greatest peace demonstration since the Vietnam war and probably the biggest protest march ever to take place. The war did happen, but this world day of resistance could very well mark the beginning of the 21st century. 2/15 instead of 9/11: a key date in the writing of a history of global contestation in the struggle between two superpowers: the United States against public opinion worldwide.

    Hands of Time, Johan De Wilde

    For many years now, Johan De Wilde’s work has been praised for its meticulous drawing style. The many solemnly applied layers that compose the works also hide in their folds, ever shrinking never to vanish, the Great Irony of our existence and its languages. This first monography presents over 500 drawings, prints and collages from the early nineties to today, concluding with the epic series Hands of Time. The book includes an essay by Hans Theys. A must for those acquainted with De Wilde’s works and a perfect introduction for all others.
