    Adrift (English version), Ricardo Brey

    Available for pre-order, shipping will start from 2 December.





    The publication reflects the core of Ricardo Brey’s most recent body of works Adrift (2014-ongoing) 



    as well on the core of the overall aspiration of Ricardo Brey for his exhibitions in Museum De Domijnen in Sittard, the Netherlands (10 February – 10 June 2019) and Gerhard-Marcks Haus, Bremen, Germany (1 December 2019 – 1 March 2020). While it is not an artist book in the traditional sense, it is definitively a project by an artist. The aim of the publication is to create a sense of the artistic space that Brey wants to offer, with a polyphony of voices and an immersive sphere in which a quality of behavior is of prime importance. It focusses strongly on his most recent body of works, Adrift



    __



    “… Ricardo Brey’s most recent ongoing body of work lacks the defined cohesiveness of previous artistic projects, which were united by shared formal and thematic concerns. After being confined to a wheelchair for several months due to medical issues, the artist described himself as “drifting around … wandering in my study not … working in my total capacity.” Discovering that this description—“drifting off”—described his new state of mind, he began to create a series of disparate yet interconnected works from, in his words, “fragments that float in my memory, images that have no place in the rigid parameters of my previous work.” Ranging in form from sculptures and installations to photographs and drawings, these works recall earlier projects while breaking new ground.

    The Zandberg Drawing, Danny Bergeman

    The Zandberg Drawing is the silent, loyal and monumental witness of the sustained and painstaking work of Danny Bergeman (°1960, Izegem). In September 2011, Bergeman first set pencil to paper in an A3 sketchbook while on holiday in France. He started to draw small, precise and recognisable motifs that he observed, such as the façade of a house, a roof, and so on. Back in Belgium, he continued to work in his sketchbook in the De Zandberg art workshop in Harelbeke, albeit that his drawings were now based on his observation and interpretation of reproductions and images in (art) books, catalogues and magazines. Over time he filled all the pages in his sketchbook with an almost endless array of abstract shapes, that were derived from the images in these books. Eight years later, Danny declared that the work was finished when he arrived on the last page. The Zandberg Drawing now offers everyone the opportunity to follow Bergeman’s drawing project, which took several years to complete, in chronological order and in its entirety. The book challenges us, both as a reader and a spectator, confronting us with the sustained effort and wordless yet magnificent visual art achievement of an unassuming man who set himself a formidable goal.

    Kwon Dae-sup is a Korean contemporary pottery master known for his series of Moon Jars, traditional Korean plain white porcelain which was originally made during the late 17th through 18th century, the late period of the Choson Dynasty (1392-1910).

    Flotsam, Debby Huysmans

    The photos of Debby Huysmans expose the daily reality she encounters during her trips to former communist countries. The artist is fascinated by the current changes post communism and dedicated to document this shift to modernization. She is not limited by narrative restrictions in her search of authentic moments. Indulging in a world we do not dwell upon the pictures have an otherworldly sense of peace. And although not depicting our reality, the images bear a strong feeling of familiarity, showing a transforming world before it disappears forever. By documenting simple, almost banal daily fragments and ignoring common aesthetic rules she captures what is almost invisible.

    Vooruit, Icon & Future

    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

    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.
