From the jury report: ‘Four layers of white ink printed on red paper is the method derived from DutchSurinamese artist Remy Jungerman, explored in the monograph Where the River Runs. As a result, the artist’s work is treated with great consideration and the reproductions of his work might hint to what the real-life experience is like. As long as the work’s originality is not compromised, there is no question of misrepresentation. However, the student jury doubted whether it might come over as ‘purist’ or ‘religious’. Perhaps the greatest issue that has been discussed in connection with reproductions is whether or not the book itself tries to become the artwork. This book balances in between. Among all the entries we’ve seen it was the example we loved most, not just for the concept or for the target audience but for the absolute direction and execution.’

He studied architecture at the Berlin University of the Arts, the ISA St. Luc Bruxelles and the Karlsruhe, Institute of Technology (KIT), where he received a Ph.D. in 2004. In 2008, he was general commissioner and curator of the German Contribution to the XI. Venice Architectural Biennal. *

In the past, designers created objects. Today, practically everything is designed: the climate, processes, refugee camps. But when everything is designed, it is high time to stop judging design solely on aesthetic criteria. According to Friedrich von Borries, we need a political theory of design. Man is forced to design the conditions under which he lives. If this happens in such a way that options for action are reduced, we are dealing with subjugation.

In his manifesto The World as Project. A Political Theory of Design, Friedrich von Borries argues for a design (of survival, society, the self) that evades the totalitarian logic of securitization and imagines new forms of living together against the ideology of lack of alternatives. – www.friedrichvonborries.de www.hfbk-hamburg.de/en/

‘Antwerp-Noorderdokken. The loneliness is intense, the concrete shelter ridden with graffiti. Even the nettles next to the wall are dripping with pink and black paint. In the small wilderness between the local train station and the tracks for the future high-speed train, there’s an apple tree that no one can reach. I eat sandwiches sitting on the bench in the shelter, a second breakfast. No train drives by, there’s not a soul to be seen on the platform. The strange familiarity of the town I once left seizes me. I’ve never been in this station before, but the space envelops me like a coat I could never take off. I may have left Antwerp, but Antwerp hasn’t left me.’

Every Day until Antwerp A Walking Trip along the Railway Line Alle dagen tot aan Antwerpen Een voetreis langs het treinspoor * Jacqueline Schoemaker is a researcher and writer. * Her earlier publications include The Undivided City (2012) and Het failliet van de Javastraat (2017). * Fonts text: Pirelli Regular, Jung-Lee Type Foundry. Fonts page numbers: Vaguely Specified Objects, a dingbat font assembling Dutch and Belgian railroad signs, Our Polite Society. *

Every Day until Antwerp is a literary travel journey about a walking trip from Amsterdam to Antwerp, along the railway line of the old Benelux train that by now has ceased to be. Determined not to go home at the end of a day’s walking but to camp on the land that up till then she had only known as an image seen through the train window, Jacqueline Schoemaker set off, pulling a tent and a sleeping bag in a shopping trolley behind her. She walked in this way from the city where she lives to the city where she grew up.

Against a background of geographical, commercial and political borders (The River Hollands Diep/the fence round a campsite/the national border), the informal, personal use of space of the traveller becomes more and more perceptible: What is it like to traverse the territory of Schiphol Airport on foot? Or to have a wash in the bushes along the motorway? Every Day until Antwerp is an exercise in appropriating (public) space, an exercise which, through discomfort and confrontation, ultimately leads to a sense of autonomy. – www.jacqueline-schoemaker.nl

GABO: Portrait of a Sculpture focuses on one artwork: Gabo’s sculpture for department store De Bijenkorf on the Coolsingel in Rotterdam. The spatial construction from 1957 and the artworks by Zadkine and Henry Moore are seen as the three key works of Rotterdam’s unique international collection called Sculpture International Rotterdam. The history of this untitled sculpture by Gabo is interwoven with the history of the city in many ways. The immediate reason for the publication is the completed and long-awaited restoration of the work. The book examines the sculpture from many angles: the history of the sculpture then and now as well as

its relationship to Rotterdam, the sculpture in relation to Gabo’s thinking and oeuvre, and the restoration and the changing meaning of the sculpture in the public space. – www.sculptureinternationalrotterdam.nl www.cbkrotterdam.nl

In recent years, visual artist Maurice Bogaert has worked on a series of projects in which he brings different media, such as architecture, film, text and visual art, together to create an immersive encounter for the audience. All of these works, including The Walter Benjamin and Albert S. Project, are attempts to create a cinematic experience without actually making a film. The Walter Benjamin and Albert S. Project is a book about the parallel lives of Walter Benjamin and Albert Speer and the quest to bring these two lives together. – www.mauricebogaert.nl

‘Walter Benjamin and Albert S. sit simultaneously – I can’t imagine it any other way – at their respective writing and drawing tables, bent over their papers. One in Paris, the other in Berlin. Perhaps there is a moment when, as in a choreography, they both lift their right hand from the paper, in exact synchronization, and look to the side. Staring into the distance, for a moment, to summon a thought – and then, the moment is over. Albert S. stands up, and Walter Benjamin crosses out the sentence he has just written.’

Vistas of Modernity decolonial aesthesis and the end of the contemporary Mondriaan Fund Essay 014 * Vistas of Modernity is a new title in a series of essays commissioned by the Mondriaan Fund. * Rolando Vázquez is co-organizer of the Middelburg Decolonial Summer School. He is associate professor of Sociology at University College Roosevelt and Cluster Chair at University College Utrecht, Utrecht University in the Netherlands. *

We are living in a time of polarization. Cultural and educational institutions are confronted with the responsibility to provide tools and spaces for critical reflection, for engagement, and, more fundamentally, for meeting and recognizing each other in our differences. In this decolonial essay Rolando Vázquez introduces his critique which offers an option for thinking and doing beyond the dominant paradigms. It provides a critical analysis of modernity understood broadly as the western project of civilization, while it seeks to overcome the dominion of western epistemology and aesthetics and their embedded eurocentrism and anthropocentrism. Importantly for decolonial thought we are all located in relation to the colonial difference that structures our modern/colonial order. It is only from an awareness of our positioned realities that we can enter in relation with each-other, that we can listen to each-other and learn each-other. – www.mondriaanfonds.nl

David Bergé A Walk in High Resolution * David Bergé practices photography through the lens of the body. * Bergé currently lives in Athens and holds an MA from the Dutch Art Institute (DAI) and an MFA from LUCA Brussels. *

Since 2008, artist David Bergé has been making Walk Pieces, during which he guides participants in silence along a precise trajectory and within a precise timeframe through textures and infrastructures that comprise the city. Walking together resonates with the phenomenological minutiae of street life, and for the entire duration of the Walk Piece, participants refrain from verbal exchange and picture taking. Participating in a Walk Piece and/ or your personal experience of reading this book are the only valid materializations of David Bergé’s ephemeral works.

0090, Jap Sam Books, PHOTOGRAPHIC EXPANDED, Out of Sight and the Flemish Community

A Walk in High Resolution deals with corporeality, sleeping, awakening, and walking through the interiors and fissures of urban infrastructures. Almost touching neighbouring bodies, reliving experiences in cities by being absorbed in space that is at once personal, reflective, consumptive, and the other, we walk through cities. A Walk in High Resolution joins together texts by David Bergé, photos by Seoulbased Junyong Cho, and essays by Dieter Roelstraete (author of Richard Long: A Line Made by Walking) and Marcelo Rezende (co-director of the Archiv der Avantgarden in Dresden). – www.davidberge.be

The work of artist Erik Odijk (1959) consists of drawings, photographs and works of art in public space. Odijk is best known for his large, monumental drawings, often made on location or in his studio, in which fragments from nature always form the most important visual elements. Drawings that let your gaze wander and amaze you with the effects he achieves using mainly black and white drawing material, for example charcoal. The book The Academy of the Sublime shows a selection of Erik Odijk’s work from 2005 to the present. The book consists of three separate ‘magazines’

and illustrates the three different disciplines in the artist’s oeuvre by means of 100 illustrations. The separate magazines are combined in a single large format folder. The large format allows the viewer/reader to become absorbed in Odijk’s work, as it were, because the details of the work are clearly visible in this way. – www.erikodijk.nl

[UN]FINISHED: Atlas of Athens’ Incomplete Buildings is presenting the phenomenon of a particular pending architecture mutely present all over Athens. The concrete skeletons of polykatoikia – multi-storey apartment buildings – are emblematic of the development of modern Greece throughout the second half of the 20th century. The book deals with the politics of urban space by treating the unfinished buildings as study objects and tracing their individual histories. Through the words of current owners and by means of photographs, archival documents and found artefacts, a different chronicle of the development of modern Athens is taking shape.

Essays by Brooke Holmes, Platon Issaias, and Elpida Karaba critically touch upon the phenomenon from different perspectives. Moving in scale from a tactile portrait of one specific concrete structure to a complete building index, the Atlas introduces a method for extracting forgotten memories and hidden structures, suggesting an alternative reading of the city. – http://un-finished.org

Global Housing: Dwelling in Addis Ababa brings together essays and architectural projects that discuss housing as a key component in the social and urban development of Addis Ababa, the capital city of Ethiopia. Over the last two decades the urban landscape of Addis Ababa has been changing at a fast pace, with disruptive consequences for the physical and social fabric of the city. Housing has been one of the key factors for this transformation, affecting job creation, craftsmanship, social and spatial equity, and dwelling practices, to name but a few. This edited volume brings together essays by international architects and educators, and twelve architectural projects developed by graduate students from TU Delft’s Global Housing educational program.

The Magic Stove: Barry, Soyer and The Reform Club or How a Great Chef Helped to Create a Great Building * Second revised edition. First published in 2017. * Thomas A P Van Leeuwen was professor of architectural history, cultural history and art criticism at Leiden University and at The Berlage Institute, Rotterdam. * Author of The Skyward Trend of Thought: The Metaphysics of the American Skyscraper (MIT Press, 1988), The Springboard in the Pond: An Intimate History of the Swimming Pool (MIT Press, 1998), and Columns of Fire: The Un-doing of Architecture, largely published as articles in Cabinet Magazine, Harvard Design Magazine and Hunch. *

This little book with the lengthy title explores the architecture and technology of the London Reform Club building (1837-1840), a noted but generally misinterpreted work of Charles Barry, Britain’s most famous unknown nineteenth-century architect. Barry’s fame rests mainly on two over-familiar monuments: the Houses of Parliament and Highclere Castle, the decor of television drama Downton Abbey. The other name is Alexis Soyer, almost mythical chef-de-cuisine who introduced not only French style of cooking but also mechanization of food preparation on a large scale, which he first practiced in collaboration with Barry in the design of the futuristic kitchen of the Reform Club. The result was a machine like building of pro to-fire-proofing construction, in which a steam engine drove the spits of the

Polder Landscapes of the World

* Polder Landscapes of the World consists of three parts: First, the backgrounds and characteristics of polder landscapes are explored. Second, polder landscapes are mapped using Geo-information technology resulting in global and regional overview maps of polder landscapes. Third, a selection of iconic polder landscapes are analysed and described by local experts and serve as ‘windows’ that open perspectives on regional variation and particularities. * Examples include: Beemster (the Netherlands), San Joachim Delta (USA), Nile Delta (Egypt), Lammefjord (Denmark), Hachirogata polder (Japan), Ning Shao Plain (China), Vistula Delta (Poland), Holland Marsh (Canada), the East Anglian Fenland (UK) and others. *

Polders can be found in coastal and alluvial lowlands all over the world. Water levels are artificially controlled so people can live and work in these reclaimed areas. This often centuriesold interaction between man and water has produced a rich variety of polder landscapes with their own cultural identity and spatial, functional, and ecological characteristics. These landscapes are under threat due to climate and economic change along with the standardisation tendencies of globalization.

This book addresses polder landscapes as cultural expressions rather than simply as results of water engineering – while providing background, overview maps, and descriptions of iconic polders as a means to understand the similarities and differences of these particular landscapes. The book aims to raise awareness on these flood-prone lowland landscapes, their cultural identity, and their problematic situation of intensive cultivation and habitation, while providing clues for future development. – https://www.tudelft.nl/bk/

From this perspective, the journal encourages the study of architecture and the urban environment as a means of comprehending culture and society, and as a tool for relating them to shifting ideological doctrines and philosophical ideas. * The journal promotes the creation and development – or revision – of conceptual frameworks and methods of inquiry. It is engaged in creating a body of critical and reflexive texts with a breadth and depth of thought which would enrich the architecture discipline and produce new knowledge, conceptual methodologies and original understandings. *

The anthropocentrism of architecture has seldom been challenged. However, some architectures function with a set of values emanating from the industrial economy, creating spaces to which human bodies must adapt and survive. The radical conditioning of humans by the built environment reaches over geographies, times and scales. These spaces could provide architecture with the opportunity to reimagine the relationship between humans and ‘technical objects’, and reconsider humanism. This issue seeks to highlight spaces of radical conditioning, in which humans have to operate according to the logic of industrial economy and technology, through an understanding of the machine and its rise in contemporary societal and architectural instances of such spaces. Contributions challenge ideas about technology, economy, and the built environment, while uncovering the rationale, values and motivations behind their conception and functioning, and the stories of their human users. To what extent can deconstructing technological determinism in architecture reveal new forms of human/machine agency?

The Architecture Competition as ‘Contact Zone’: Towards a Historiography of Cross-Cultural Exchanges

softcover 144 pp. ISBN 978-94-92852-19-9 Spring/Summer 2020 €25.Competition is key to the architectural profession. On a daily basis, practicing architects compete for the recognition of their ideas, new commissions, team approval, media attention, prizes and awards. This issue studies different modalities of architecture competitions, and the ways in which they collectively produce knowledge. Architecture competitions are considered as a productive site of negotiation and exchange, or ‘contact zones’, an open arena for debate between different architecture cultures that produce moments of friction and wisdom. From this perspective, the study of architecture competitions is essentially a study of exchange. Like other contact zones intrinsic to the profession, architecture competitions can be considered intense transcultural and transdisciplinary exchanges of architecture knowledge. As such, they have significantly affected the way architects have thought their profession. Recognizing the architecture competition as a contact zone stimulates innovative reflections on the theory and methodology of architecture.

Footprint 27 thus aims to shed light on a selection of contributions to the ‘Mediating the Spatiality of Conflicts’ conference, organized by the Borders & Territories research group at TU Delft’s Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment, held in November 2019. Footprint 27 will present contributions of researchers, scholars, activists, practitioners and artists addressing the relationships between spatiality, mediation and conflict from a variety of perspectives. These contributions will explore new or alternative theoretical and methodological approaches and insights on: (1) Spaces of conflict as transitional spaces of material interactions between violence and everyday life; and (2) Spaces of memory as transformative space of violence. The issue’s editors hope to be solidifying the existing base as well as defining a much-needed methodological framework for future investigations in this emerging and relevant research field. –

CUBIC JOURNAL No. 4 Design Education: Pedagogy – Critique – Transformation

CUBIC JOURNAL No. 3 Design Making: Practice, Making, Praxis As the twenty-first century moves forward, technological changes re-propose the act of making, the actualization of design agency, in different contexts. New notions of craft redefine movement from desire to reality as continuous and decentralized in the assignation of value. The liquidity of the archive of things-about-to-be and things which will only ephemerally be define a new schema of what it means to make at all, and their boundaries ask profound questions about the value of bodily experience. Within and without technological advancements, design making imposes demands upon design praxis in both disciplinary and professional contexts. The adjoining of the two words implies distinction from centrist practice where the immediacy of making is absent. What are the starting-point

biases privileging this immediacy? In most cases, the value structures are indelible or internal. In practice and pedagogy, clients and young designers each wonder why designmakers insist upon expensive and time-consuming processes moving objects from desire to actualisation. In the process, designers become something between and other from normative practitioners and fabricators, articulating a definition of what design-makers uniquely contribute. But theirs is a difficult path to justify. How do designmakers continue, and what do they, and the society around them, gain through their work? – www.cubicjournal.org

* Cubic Journal is a peer-reviewed journal, published in conjunction with Cubic Society and the Cubic Research Network as an academic platform aimed at the dissemination of design-related research. * Operating from within The Hong Kong Polytechnic University School of Design, the platforms aims to draw together global scholars in order to generate, exchange and discuss contemporary questions within the pursuit of advancing knowledge through and within a number of design disciplines. *

‘Like no other artist, Ian Berry is able to scrutinise contemporary life without moralising. He is an archaeologist of the modern human condition and brings it all so close to home that it crawls under your skin.’ Diana Wind, Curator Contemporary Art Museum Rijswijk

authors Diana Wind Arnoud van Aalst Ian Berry design Tim Ho @duotone.hk partner Museum Rijswijk release date November 2020 softcover with flaps 160 pp 24 x 24 cm fc & bl/w illustrations English ISBN 978-94-92852-30-4 €25.With support of Pepe Jeans

Ian Berry. Splendid Isolation * This eponymous publication accompanies the first solo-exhibition of Berry in the Netherlands. Ian Berry. Splendid Isolation, Museum Rijswijk, November 29, 2020 – April 5, 2021. * Ian Berry (1984, Huddersfield UK) is based in East London. He is internationally known for his works made out of only pairs of jeans. * Illustrated with numerous images that aim to convey the depth and texture of Berry’s work, which explores our urban environment and examines community issues, or the lack thereof. With this everyday material he portrays contemporary life, and for him there is no better medium to depict it than the material of our time, denim jeans. *

Ian Berry has emerged as an exciting young British artist over the last decade. He has been making virtuous figurative paintings and installations of denim for over 15 years. He uses discarded jeans, cuts them up into pieces and sorts according to hue like a painter places his colour nuances to his palette. At first glance the work seems two-dimensional, but when you zoom in, you can see how different layers of denim are placed on top and over each other. The ‘paintings’ are in fact denim collages so perfectly put together. They are almost impossible to distinguish from a realistic painting. Ian Berry also makes three-dimensional denim installations, which have been on display on multiple continents and at museums.

Ian Berry is a socially committed artist. With his work he responds to topical developments in society. His work is made of denim not only because he likes the material, it is as well because the textile industry is one of the most polluting industries. In his work he asks attention for this. In 2019, Ian Berry was proclaimed one of the 50 most influential people in the denim industry in the world. – www.ianberry.org https://museumrijswijk.nl
