    Vooruit, Icon & Future

    €39.00

    Available for pre-order. Shipping will start from 23 september. 

    Dit boek biedt een architecturaal verslag van de metamorfose die kunstencentrum Vooruit gekend heeft gedurende de laatste tien jaar. Aangespoord door een groeiende noodzaak van het kunstencentrum om zich fysiek aan te passen en nieuwe verbindingen te leggen met zijn omgeving en zijn gebruikers, onderging het iconische monument een transformatie van historisch cultuurhuis naar stedelijk platform.

    Het boek gaat verder in op de visie van de architect en hoe hij op een unieke en uitdagende manier verder wil bouwen aan deze kunst- en architectuurschat uit het verleden. Het maatschappelijke belang en de verantwoordelijkheden van het kunstencentrum in de stad worden uitgediept in een debat, waarin ook duurzaamheid en vergroening een plaats krijgen. Daarnaast wordt kunst in de publieke ruimte een belangrijk thema in de publicatie. Via interviews geven drie kunstenaars hun reflectie weer op de nieuwe architectuur. Hun kunstwerken zijn een blijvende getuige.

    In het eerste deel gaat architectuur recensent Christoph Grafe dieper in op het maatschappelijke en architecturale belang van de transformatie. In een tweede deel gaat Egon Verleye de dialoog aan met architect Geert LM Pauwels. Ten slotte geven de kunstenaars Christophe Hefti, Strook en Bonom hun kijk op kunst in de publieke ruimte. De dialoog tussen oud en nieuw wordt mooi verbeeld door de krachtige fotografie van Karin Borghouts, Michiel Devijver, Stijn Bollaert en Reinhart Cosaert.

    MUSEUM III. 2.1, Sven Augustijnen & Sammy Baloji

    €20.00

    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.

    Chantier Construction Site, AgwA

    €20.00

    AgwA shows work in progress: execution as a verb. A collection of collected images. Without a necessary order or sequence. Enlarged and then zoomed in again. But moments that had to be visualised at that time. Perhaps merely to serve as witness. Perhaps ultimately as an unencumbered catalogue of which only this or that will really be understood later on. Or will even be used. AgwA makes work of work in progress: exe¬cution as a context. That all of those images are collected is not odd. Not odd in and of itself. As situated: the importance of the building site. But also not strange for AgwA itself. The work itself of AgwA. Increasingly the work situates the idea of what a building truly is. How it is made. Or rather, how it is actually made. — Jan De Vylder 

    AgwA is a Brussels based architecture office. The projects of AgwA architects focus mainly on public infrastructures and buildings for collectivities in Belgium. Amongst these, reconversion projects in complex urban contexts are predominant. In these loaded surroundings, AgwA aims at clear spatial cuts which can be built in a very straightforward way. To achieve this, the internal resources of architecture are fundamental. Structures, construction materials, ample spatial systems and a precise contextual positioning are at the heart of their design strategies. Their architecture is simultaneously ordinary and exceptional.

    Photographs by AgwA, Filip Dujardin, Antoine Espinasseau, Delphine Mathy and Sévérin Malaud. Texts by Jan De Vylder (architects de vylder vinck taillieu, Ghent) and Tom Emerson (6a architects, London). AgwA partners : Benoît Burquel, Harold Fallon, Benoît Vandenbulcke

    Other Things Visible, Michel Mazzoni

    €39.00

    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.

    Sculptures & Drawings, Herma De Wit

    €39.00

    Herma de Wit lives and works in Amsterdam. After studying at the Rietveld Academy and following a career in fashion de Wit shifted her interest to visual arts. Since 1999 she has been creating art pieces going from fragile sketches of flowers to robust bronze or wooden sculptures. A guiding principle in her practice is her fascination for natural cycles, which gives rise to reflections about emotion and processes of life and ephemerality. Distinctive in her work is her flawless sense of detail and technique, her balanced sensitivity and powerfull femininity.

    In the course of time, de Wit’s work has become more monumental; by incorporating steel and robust materials and enlarging the scale she triggers a tension between the vulnerability and strength of nature.

    Things & Air, Rein Dufait

    €39.00

    For Rein Dufait, the definition of sculpture is the adding or subtracting of material. His rigorous approach to his chosen medium has led him to develop a singular — perhaps also solitary — practice that is nourished by an insistent curiosity about material (whether natural or manmade) and a fascination with form (whether organic or artistic). In his work, Dufait confronts the fundamental questions of sculpture: how to divide space; how to combine textures; how to create volume and height. His sculptures are never narrative, seldom figurative, but often refer to organic structures. Always human in scale, they reveal an efficiency in construction that is fundamental to their meaning.

    The Matrix Project, Thierry Lagrange

    €35.00

    The Matrix Project comprises two contexts, namely photographic work of architect Thierry Lagrange and the self-reflective trajectory that he developed during his doctorate at KULeuven. Lagrange’s practice-based research developed to an autonomous artistic project, in which he studied the signification and nature of observation within a creative process. Through his multifaceted practice as an architect, photographer and researcher, Lagrange developed ‘The Matrix Method’; a method that stimulates creativity within different contexts and can be implemented for example in art education. For the Matrix Project, 25 years’ worth of photographs was entered into a context of research and presents a new perspective on different ways of seeing in our present visual culture.

    Thierry Lagrange (°1970) is a civil engineer/architect. He runs the architecture office ALT-architectuur. He is active as a photographer and videomaker and finished his doctorate Look Here Now, Mapping Design Trajectories. Legrange is lecturer an researcher at the Faculty of Architecture, KU Leuven.

    Time Regained, A Warburg Atlas for Early Music

    €65.00

    This publication is a kind of workbook or manual. It is not a music history, nor is it a technical, musicological book. It is rather a book about materials – musical materials and their relation to other artistic materials. It is not a book for professionals or specialists but for those who like to explore the capacities and possibilities of artistic materials. However, it never talks about them in a technical way. This book is instead about love and desire for old repertoires, and especially for polyphony, attempting to retrace its shape: the initial desire that makes one want to perform this music.
