    Bloedtest

    Wit.h huivert bij de gedachte dat onze medische en technische evoluties geruisloos de samenleving binnensluipen. Terwijl de gevolgen op ethisch vlak soms immens zijn. Wat te denken over de mogelijkheid dat er heel snel geen personen met Down nog geboren worden? Het Museum dr. Guislain en Wit.h bundelen de krachten om een artistiek project te realiseren dat deze bloedtest (de NIP test) en vooral de gevolgen ervan onder de aandacht brengt. Een complexe problematiek, zoveel is duidelijk. Via onderzoek, experiment en een organisch werkproces komen ze tot een unieke presentatie.



    Prof. Dr. Ignaas Devisch bundelde zijn inzichten bij dit project als rode draad in het boek. Over de NIP test zegt hij: “Onze ‘existentiële actieradius’ wordt groter- dat noemen we vrijheid - maar daardoor nemen de morele dilemma’s toe – en dat heet verantwoordelijkheid. Meer vrijheid vraagt meer verantwoordelijkheid, want zodra het leven niet langer ons lot is, maar wat we er zelf van maken, valt aan de plicht om keuzes te maken nauwelijks nog te ontsnappen.”



    Deze uitgave is deel van de Walking Opera ‘Bloedtest’, een inititaief van Wit.h en Museum Dr. Guislain Gent in coproductie met Kunstencentrum Buda Kortrijk, De Beelderij Torhout, De Figuranten Menen, Des Mensen, Kontekt Gent, Passerelle Kortrijk, Theater Stap Turnhout, UGent vakgroep Orthopedagogie, Vives Kortrijk, Vormingplus MZW.

    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.

    The World of a/the Monkey, Pol Dehert

    The World of a/the Monkey is the written result of years of fascination by theater director Pol Dehert for the life and works of the 17th-century poet and libertine John Wilmot, alias "the monkey" and duke of Rochester. In this essay, devised as a play in several acts, Dehert sketches the signs of early modern visual culture, the prevalent theoretical morals of libertinism, and the theatrical baroque body. These findings coincide with the author's other fascination for everything popular: from burlesque theater over freak shows, variety and revue, to music hall, grand guignol and striptease. The premise for this publication was the author's eponym doctoral dissertation on Exhibiting Baroque Bodies, which was defended in 2015 at the Brussels' RITCS, Royal Institute for Theatre, Cinema and Sound.

    Ghost Shift III, Stefaan Dheedene

    Ghost Shift is a) a closed display case housing a circular table saw and a copy machine, b) a the simultaneous performing of sawing and copying by two actors in the Ghost Shift display case, c) a series of books, registers of the consecutive Ghost Shift performances. On January 31, 2009 at Deweer Gallery in Otegem, Belgium, Stefaan Dheedene systematically sawed small wooden beams into pieces as small as he could make them. Deborah Delva simultaneously began copying on A4 paper, starting from a blank sheet, always using the latest copy as the original. A process of photographic feedback started. Another process was that of physical interference: sawdust gathering on the glass plate of the copy machine. The performance ended when all wood was cut. This publication is a collection of centerfold pages that can be removed for exhibition purposes. The publication Ghost Shift III comes in an edition 3 copies; all signed and numbered by the artist. Price on request.
