    The Story of Hardcore 1977–1999, Onno Hesselink & Hans Verbeke

    It all begins in 1978, when a near-legendary Sex Pistols/P.I.G.Z. show in Kortrijk gets cancelled. From that point on, the story rips by like a runaway train, up until the turn of the millennium. From the early 90s on, the H8000 hardcore scene became one of the most active and influential punk scenes on the European mainland. Its musical style and philosophy had — and still have — a major influence on bands and individuals all over the globe. The personalities presented and opinions expressed in this book are as varied as the music these people have created since. This is your chance to hear the real story, straight from the mouth of key players in bands like Rise Above, Nations On Fire, Blindfold, Shortsight, Spirit Of Youth, Congress, Liar, Regression, Deformity, Spineless, as well as many record labels and zealous fans from the heydays of H8000. Dig into heartfelt memories about camaraderie, dedication and insecurity in the form of happy/sad tour diaries, gig anecdotes and dirty squat confessions.



    In the dark ages before desktop publishing, album artwork had to be pasted together by hand. If you were a kid in those pre-web days, xeroxed zines were your main source for information. Bands had to rely on friends and bands in other cities to get them shows if they wanted to tour. In keeping with that DIY spirit, you will find out who those people were and get the stories behind their contributions first-hand. While the book’s imagery sparks the imagination, the commentary sprinkled throughout will let you relive the thrilling old-school times of the era.



    More than anything, this book will show you how crazy those times truly were. With an immense number of bands spawning from an area the size of just a few blocks in NYC. The H8000 scene of the 90s proved that willpower, youthfulness and creativity can overcome any obstacle. Those kids just did their own thing, caused a stir and together, shaped a musical movement that put Belgium on the map.



    This compendium is filled to the brim with beautiful and compelling stories, cut-and paste-flyers, never-before-seen photos, sharpie playlists and a detailed discography of every significant H8000 release. Read on and discover how H8000 helped change the face of hardcore punk, just like L.A., New York or Boston did.

    Trying, Emilio López-Menchero

    This book serves as a printed memory of the oeuvre of the artist Emilio López-Menchero (°1960, Mol). It documents and illustrates a selection of exhibitions, artistic projects and public performances created in the past 25 years.



    Conceptually, the book is based on a statement by which López considers each of his actions a test against reality, an ‘attempt’. Within this context, the title of each project is consequently preceded by the prefix ‘Trying to -’; ‘Trying to situate’, ‘Trying to light up’, ‘Trying to question’,... By trying to infiltrate daily context, López-Menchero aims to generate new situations, confront with reality and contemplate on the meaning of art. Included in the book are essays and texts by Luk Lambrecht, Hans Theys and Koen Van Synghel.

    Some use for your broken clay pots, Christophe Meierhans

    Some use for your broken clay pots is the constitutional text for a democratic state that does not yet exist. A possible scenario for a society in which voluntary citizenship, the Democratic service, Statebook, leaders appointed through self-disqualification, a constitutional carnival and many other innovations set the basis of our common future. Christophe Meierhans works with and within the public space. As an artist, he develops strategies for interventions in our daily life protocols through the manipulation of conventional agreements, social habits and simple usages.

    Paesaggio (Penguin Issue), Hans Ulrich Obrist

    Paesaggio is a periodical publication. Each edition comprises a collection of landscapes by different artists, in form of text and without using im- ages. Texts/landscapes may assume different forms: artworks in form of a text, documents, notes, dialogues. The project aims at bearing witness to the way contemporary artists relate to landscape (intended as genre, subject of research, vision/vista, history...) today, without using images – only words.

    This issue has been guest-edited by Hans Ulrich Obrist. The selection of the authors is strictly connected to the 2011 Serpentine Gallery Garden Marathon, the sixth in the Gallery’s Marathon series curated by Obrist. The event explored the concept of the garden. A product of the creative encounter between the man-made and the natural, between order and disorder, the garden can offer productive metaphors for the interactions between human life and time, care, thought or space.
