    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.

    Maquettes / Models 1 1980–2005, Tadashi Kawamata

    Japanese artist Tadashi Kawamata (°1953) lives and works in Paris. For the past three decades, Kawamata has been creating transient, site-specific intallations in public spaces, often where you least expect them. An essential element in his work is the process of building, by which the participation of local residents plays a key role. Typically, his sculptural works are made of simple construction materials, such as wooden pallets, residual wood, old chairs, etc. This edition, the first volume of a trilogy, focusses on his impressive maquettes, created in preparation for the monumental installations. Kawamata chose the title maquette, which for him, in this context, refers to relief-like, semi-three-dimensional pieces.

    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.

    In Practice, Philippe Vander Maren & Richard Venlet

    In this book, together with Pierre Chabard, Philippe Vander Maren and Richard Venlet explore and explicit the design process of House D through a set of unpublished work documents such as sketches, scale models, series of annotated plans, collages and pictures. They retrace the collaboration with the client, the exchanges between the architect and the artist, the moments of discovery of essential features of the design, the similarities and dissonances with architectural precedents. This book was produced following the In Practice conference in Liège, Galerie Opéra, on June 12th 2018. In Practice is an initiative of Harold Fallon (KU Leuven) and Benoît Vandenbulcke (ULiège). Initially, In Practice were conferences at which architects were invited to unveil their working documents and tell their story. These short conferences were followed by a conversation with a panel of critics, architects, editors and academics. Architecture opened up to the modalities of research.With this book, In Practice goes further and positions itself at the heart of research, while remaining at the heart of the architect’s work. The book is written on the basis of collected statements. Or rather, it is written by many hands: the external outlook and inner knowledge complement each other. The work dissects the genesis of a project, it shares the doubts, it extracts the mechanisms that lead to choices and it discovers the intuitions which make poetry.

    Chantier Construction Site, AgwA

    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

  • Cylinder #9, Joris Van de Moortel

    Cylinder #9, Joris Van de Moortel

    Comics were Van de Moortel’s first love: his first drawings, his first stories; a dwelling of fantasies and a lack of reality: he devored them as a child. His first publications with MER., the Cylinder Series, is not a real comic book series, but the idea is based on the structure of it. It fits perfectly to get Van de Moortel’s work published. The sketches, the colouring, the humour that feels close to the practice: it’s a work in itself and not just a representation of images. The artist prints one new Cylinder issue on the occasion of each new project or exhibition. Each cahier has a unique design and cover. Each will be published separately at first; becoming one book after 10 editions that will be published as a whole. Every edition is a new adventure having the same basic players, added, transformed. It’s one big playground: like a show. This is the sequel to Cylinder # 8. It is the ninth issue of the Cylinder Series.

    Inland Voyages in An Inland Voyage, Mira Sanders

    Under the generic title of Journal of a user of space, Mira Sanders (°1973, Brussels) develops a manifold oeuvre on mapping and territory as well as architecture and social space. The network of lines as well as the physical and temporal trajectories of her wanderings, constitutes through her drawings, videos and installations, a work of fiction inspired by the everyday and the trivial. As an invitation to multiple travels, Inland Voyages in An Inland Voyage was presented during two exhibitions, at Argos – Center for Art and Media in Brussels in 2016 and at the Musée d’art contemporain de la ­Haute-Vienne, Château de Rochechouart in 2018.

    Un nouveau musée, Simon Boudvin

    French artist Simon Boudvin (°1979) brought a narrative but also political depth to the architectural project of building the new museum of folklore in Mouscon. His work consisted in inserting bricks that were recovered from the demolition sites of several small heritages in Mouscron. The bricks inserted in the facade contribute to the story of the preservation of tradition and minor architecture under threat. As part of the work, the book 'Un Nouveau Musée' consists of a text by the artist, in which he extensively descibes the museum, without showing it.
