Jap Sam Books, headed by Eleonoor Jap Sam, is an independent international publishing house based in the south of the Netherlands. Jap Sam Books publishes titles that explore developments in architecture, art, philosophy, design, photography and theory as well as the fields that touch them, such as urbanism, landscape, sociology and history. Jap Sam Books has been established to reflect, connect and respond to developments in these fields, by bringing out a range of critical and reflective books for an international audience.

We believe in a multidisciplinary approach and cross-border thinking. The books that we publish are not only educational and inspirational, but also very beautifully designed, and all produced in close collaboration with our contributors. The following pages contain a complete catalogue of available publications and journals, together with a list of forthcoming titles. –


Jap Sam Books was invited by SixtyEight Art Institute to exhibit a selection of publications in Copenhagen (Denmark) to reflect on books as art objects with a focus on their materiality and visuality. The exhibition The Book as Art and Vision curated by Denisa Tomkova took place at the SixtyEight gallery space from December 3rd, 2021 until January 20th, 2022. At the opening of the exhibition, founder Eleonoor Jap Sam and curator Denisa Tomkova engaged in a conversation on Jap Sam Books’ publishing approach.

In the interview, Eleonoor Jap Sam puts her publishing career into words, here are some quotes from the interview:

‘It was an incredibly inspiring and educational journey, a process of trial and error, incredibly hard work and then the gift of all those beautiful books.’

‘A book also has a lot of rules, and it is interesting to see how you can extend or stretch these rules.’

‘I think it is important to get out of your comfort zone. To immerse yourself in the other, or to invite the other to contribute.’

‘Publishing, especially in the field of art and culture, also gives you the opportunity to be a link between the different practices, to connect them. We work with artists, with art institutions, with museums, with galleries, the academic world, the business world, distributors, bookstores, etc. Being a spider in a web must be something you like.’

‘It is also important that within the book, the reader is given the freedom to really connect with the book. Many people 'find' books or are really looking for a particular book. Sometimes just to absorb the content, but often also just to have the book in your home bookcase. It remains a fascinating process, the richness of having books.’

‘Developing and publishing books is all about working together, thinking about how to tell the story and publish it in book form, and which peripheral elements you add such as an exhibition, a seminar or even producing a short film.’

Solar Futures: How to Design a Post-Fossil World with the Sun by solar designer Marjan van Aubel explores the future of solar energy.

Solar energy needs a new narrative - one that says goodbye to old perspectives and only talks about the efficiency and the payback time of blue solar panels. This publication illustrates what we need to know to transition from solar technology to solar design using everyday integrated aesthetic solutions.

The book is divided into three parts: the first part explains how we designed with the sun in the past, providing a visual timeline of the historical development of solar power. The second part discusses the present: Where are we now and what is solar design? It provides examples of innovative solar

| A peer-reviewed journal published in conjunction with Cubic Society and Cubic Research Network.

| An academic discussion within the pursuit of advancing knowledge via design disciplines.

A reflection on the existence of different knowledge forms.

Many knowledge forms are predominantly practical in nature and aligned with creative practices in the arts. The arts themselves are alternative knowledge systems on their own right. When conventional formats have exhausted their possibilities, creative workers like artists and designers create a space for exchange between themselves and their audience. Creative production is thus about making previously inaccessible knowledge available by giving it form.

This issue of Cubic is a reflection on the different knowledge forms that are informed, established and passed on within communities in non-academic ways. The featured contributions seek to experiment with narrative forms, recombine research materials, represent public communities and integrate algorithmic principles to uncover the unseen.

| Unique hybrid project touching both the fields of science and art by textile artist and former M.D. Monika Auch.

| Beautifully designed by Studio Joost Grootens.

| Stitch Your Brain celebrates its 10th anniversary in 2023!

Stitch Your Brain is a long-term study into the intelligence of the hand by artist and former medical doctor Monika Auch. The book reflects the results of the empirical study Auch worked on for the past decade about the importance of creating with your hands in our digital age and the effects of slow creation on neuro cognitive learning, health, and well-being.

The detailed images of a collection of 100+ stitched brains created by participants and their personal comments illustrate the influence of medical image making on body-identity and brain awareness. The creations are in fact a tactile, textile multitude of intimate self-portraits. At the same time, they are a dynamic documentation of changing visions and concerns on global issues throughout the past 10 years.

The data analysis and interpretation by Monika Auch provides insights in the relationship between creativity, stress management, age, well-being, and skill learning. Experts in art history, art, science interactions, and neuroscience who were involved early on in the project comment on the research and place it in a broader context. Contributions by Prof. R. Zwijnenberg, Dr. Marieke Hendriksen, Charlotte Steels (director of the Gawthorpe Textiles Collection), and Mané van Veldhuizen. The texts include topics such as the importance of coexistence of art and science and why they need each other, ethical and esthetical changes of self-perception due to modern brain research, the history of medical imagery of the brain and brain imagery using art and textile design in the past and present, among others.

MONIKA AUCH (1955, Germany) lives and works in Amsterdam where she received her education in medicine (UvA) and art. While practicing as M.D. she attained a degree in textile design and printmaking at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy (2000). A hybrid of art and science her work is focussed on the ‘intelligence of the hand’ in both her visual work and artistic research, based on empirical models. Monika Auch moved from her native Germany to Amsterdam where she studied and practiced medicine while studying textiles at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy. (BA_2000) Since 2001 she works as a visual artist with a focus on visual work through weaving. She researches the Intelligence of the Hand in the projects STITCH_MY_BRAIN and WeefLab. Monika Auchs’ practice is informed by regular publications on the material based making of art for Dutch kM magazine. She teaches design on all levels, drawing from a rich archive of material and a commitment about the importance of creativity, hands-on making and personal growth of students.

The world that Jasper de Beijer presents to the audience through his photographic works is fascinating, familiar and disconcerting all at the same time. His work is about the process of looking, seeing and interpreting. At first you think it’s a photograph of reality, but then you see it’s a photograph of a paper model. You are swept into a narrative that is more than a photograph. You need to respond in some way, but how? This is precisely the question the artist is asking the audience: Do you really know what you are seeing?

The publication Critical Mass. Jasper de Beijer and the exhibition by the same name were made possible with the support of the Agnes van den Brandeler Museum Prize, jointly awarded to Museum Rijswijk and the artist.

JASPER DE BEIJER (1973) is a Dutch artist whose work focuses thematically on a specific historical period and event. He explores the processes of seeing, interpreting, and understanding as a viewer. Visual data is used to analyse historical moments such as Dutch colonialism in Indonesia. His work is a photographic registration of a labour-intensive working process that eventually results in an autonomous artwork.

Labyrinth is an exploration into Ton Kraayeveld’s ‘network in space and time’. The opening contribution by Bertus Pieters guides us through Kraayeveld’s oeuvre, his relationship to Modernism, the influence of his daily experiences and a net of well-known historical figures. A collection of exemplary paintings is accompanied by selected questions from an interview by Marie Jeanne de Rooij. Each question giving an opportunity to reflect, uncover and peak into the labyrinth of his oeuvre. Following is a text by Niek van Vugt and Madeleine Steigenga, admirers and collectors of his work. Ge van Steenbergen then briefly discusses a small green painting before a final contribution by Katja Diallo who explores the ever-constant presence of Franz Kafka throughout Kraayeveld’s works.

Connected with each other, the paintings and drawings by Ton Kraayeveld stare at the audience, inviting it to enter his world where time and space are flexible and visual anachronism is normal. Each painting is a protest against forgetting, in which fragmentation and simultaneity merge. His work is less about the act of painting than about the painting itself as a bearer of images or meanings. Abstraction and figuration coincide, always deriving from reality and giving his paintings a stronger unity and coherence, a new-found layeredness. For Kraayeveld, a painting has to invite the viewer to see it from several perspectives, levels and interpretations. A new challenging tension is introduced by a shift from a literary to a more implicit political subject matter.

‘I think a work of art is something different than an opinion, but that it should be able, in its complexity and layeredness, to pose questions or raise issues.’
Ton Kraayeveld
‘I want a painting to offer itself generously to that imaginary viewer.’

TON KRAAYEVELD (1955) is a Dutch visual artist who now lives and works in Dordrecht. He graduated in 1985 from the Willem de Kooning Academie in Rotterdam. His oeuvre contains lots of patterns and symbols. His life and experiences, such as many artist-in-residencies influence his work, providing him with new insights and themes. As a protest against the passing of time, he uses paint and manipulated images of visual history, placing them into different contexts. Distilled autobiographical experiences are combined with an internal world of associations and reflections. However, there is room for the viewers to formulate their own thoughts and use their imagination.

| An exploration of the things we surround ourselves with in our daily lives.

| A collection of residues of memories and connections that make up who we are.

What speaks to us. Arjan van Helmond is a publication about the oeuvre of Dutch visual artist Arjan van Helmond, which offers a broad overview of his work from the past 12 years. The book is a moment to look back, reflect, collect and connect.

ARJAN VAN HELMOND (1971) is interested in using painting as a medium to help the audience think about the objects in our daily lives. His focus is on using ordinary yet evocative details to build up a form of realism that traces a path between history, culture, cliché and human behaviour. Aside from exhibiting internationally in cities such as New York (USA), London (UK), Sydney (Australia) and Shanghai (China), he teaches painting at AKI-ArtEZ School for Art and Design in Enschede (The Netherlands).

‘Van Helmond has posed a kind of lexicon of discovery and encounter: moments of reckoning, where the details seem to offer (or rather insist on?) the potential for meaningfulness.’

Mirages documents the work by Dutch artist Lieven Hendriks over a period of twenty years. In his paintings he gives shape to abstract concepts such as hope, comfort and desire. The manipulation of light always plays an important role in the construction of his works. The painted subjects evoke a field of tension with the historical idea of painting. His paintings thus balance between temporality and eternity, between presence and absence, between truth and deceit.

The book offers a comprehensive overview of the artist’s paintings with texts from Dominic van den Boogerd, Rianne Groen and an interview with the artist by Menno Vuister.

LIEVEN HENDRIKS (1970) is a visual artist who takes everyday subjects in which human touch is visible as a starting point for his work. By using trompe l’oeil effects, his flat canvases appear as loosely stretched lines, deceiving the eyes of the viewer. In his work, he plays a game with the nature of observation, touching upon the essence of painting and the value attached to it. He graduated from the HKU in Utrecht in 1994 and was a resident at De Ateliers in Amsterdam. His work is part of renowned international collections such as Museum Voorlinden, ESMoA Los Angeles and the Nagoya University of Arts Collection.

A catalogue for a fictional survey exhibition in the year 2084.

What will the world look like 100 years from now?

In Marc Bijls’ catalogue for a fictional survey exhibition in the year 2084, time comes to us from the future. Bijl considers himself an observer of society, of everyday conditions and contemporary culture. In a society structured by narratives and fictions, by immaterial scripts that insinuate themselves into lifestyles, institutions, and ideology, he turns his attention to concealed myths, codes and structures that order everyday life. He leads us into the year 2084 and from there back to the aesthetics of the 1980s. In a body of work that forms a critically purposeful montage of observations, Bijl playfully combines methods of appropriation and deconstruction, drawing from counter-cultural traditions and the real-time iconography of 'high' and 'low' culture alike. The works that result from the appropriated and manipulated sources (in media including painting, installation, sculpture, video, posters, stickers and legally marginal interventions in public space) are unfailingly inventive within the artist's unique stylistic idiom, which bears the influence of pop, punk and goth culture.

MARC BIJL (1970) is a Dutch visual artist currently living in Berlin. He graduated from the Royal Academy of Art & Design in ‘s-Hertogenbosch in 1997. In 1996 he also studied at the Rennie Macintosh School of Art in Glasgow. His work is part of many international private and public collections such as the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam and the Hudson Valley Center for Contemporary Art in New York.

Jan van de Pavert. Collected Works is a richly illustrated body of work covering the artist’s oeuvre of the past years. Initially, van de Pavert became known for his sculptures, his early works referred to architecture and resembled parts from buildings, such as windows and doors. An example is the 1987 work Inversion : the work is a door and doorpost folded inside out, for which an original door and doorpost were used as a mould.

Later, the artist decided to use these architectural elements in films as well and eventually started using computer animations. As this developed, he focussed more and more on murals. In an interview he justified this as follows: “I could put an entire exhibition in one film. While I was working on that, I decided to add murals to the spaces. I asked myself the question: if these spaces were covered with murals, what kind of iconography would they show? What would muralism, like Diego Rivera’s, look like in this day and age?”

A central topic in van de Pavert’s drawings is the development of figuration. He took historical paintings originating in earlier centuries as his starting point, asking himself: what do these works mean to our world right now? The themes he developed in response to this question play an important role in the publication.

comprehensive illustrated monograph on

work of Dutch visual artist Jan van de Pavert.

designed by Remco van Bladel.

Starting in the 1990s, he began working on watercolours that served for computer animated films. The representations in those watercolours were about the avant-garde movements and the political left. Later, he focussed more on youth, the 1960s and 1970s and the idea of freedom. In 2013, these murals were executed on large scale for the first time for an exhibition at Art Centre De Appel in Amsterdam. 20th century avant-garde clearly lives on through the artist’s oeuvre.

JAN VAN DE PAVERT (1960) lives and works in Rotterdam. He studied at Academy of Fine Arts Sint-Joost in Breda from 1979 to 1982, where he was taught by Hans van Zummeren and Theo Mols. From 1982 to 1984, he continued his studies at Ateliers ’63 in Haarlem with Stanley Brouwn and Carel Visser, among others. Van de Pavert established himself as an independent artist in Amsterdam in 1984. He moved to Utrecht in 1992, before he finally settled in Rotterdam in 1998.

| A conversation on ‘how to make sculpture move’.

| Includes interactive QR codes.

Ruta Butkute’s art practice is guided by a reflective approach to the physicality of sculpture and its relation to performers, audiences and the spaces in which they interact. Departing from the principle that an object has a function hidden inside, she redefines the origins and functions of materials and forms to evoke their intricate capacity to move. Working around her sculpture with different mediums led to many experimentations and to the development of a new medium she calls ‘sculptural performance’. Objects/sculptures and their space are now placed in a transformative field.

This book is a collaboration between Butkute and Emily Kocken, in which artwork, images and texts work in unison as equal factors. By using principles as reversal and mirroring they transform and activate each other. Via a poetic assemblage of linguistic genres, world plays and critical references, new meanings are unfolded. The reading experience challenges the readers to research their perspective and find new interpretations as they reveal themselves gradually. This play between meaning and feeling, moving and thinking invites the readers to explore sculpture on a new level, considering new functions beyond the visbile, the conceptual, philosophical and rhetorical.

EMILY KOCKEN (1963) is a Dutch writer and a visual artist. Her debut novel Witte vlag (Querido, 2013) about a young couple surviving the art world, was nominated for the Academica Prize of Literature. Her novel De kuur was selected among the De Groene Amsterdammer’s favourite books. Lalalanding (2021) was described in Trouw as a ‘magical web of history and intimate relations’. Kocken also works as an event moderator in the field of art, performance, philosophy and literature.

RUTA BUTKUTE (1984) is a Lithuanian artist who studied at the Vilnius Academy of Arts, the Gerrit Rietveld Academie and the Rijksakademie in Amsterdam. She has been an artistin-residence at the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council in New York, the creative residency Arita in Japan, the Work Space Brussels and at the Rosas P.A.R.T.S. in Brussels. Her work has been exhibited both nationally and internationally at many galleries and institutions such as Fons Welters in Amsterdam, the Contemporary Art Centre in Vilnius, the Teruhiro Yanagihara Gallery in Osaka, the Kaaistudios in Brussels and several other locations. Her education in ceramics deeply affects her work in how she uses primal material aspects such as weight, scale, mass and gravity. She is the receiver of an Established Talent Grant from the Mondriaan Fund. Butkute has also received development grants from the Amsterdams Fonds voor de Kunst. Her works are part of the AMC art collection. She is represented by Bradwolff Projects in Amsterdam.

The core of the publication Schaepmanstraat - De Kempenaerstraat is the eponymous temporary artistic intervention which Dutch artist Lucas Lenglet made on the facade of his apartment in Amsterdam. For the period of five months he fenced off the windows of his apartment with a steel mesh construction. Reflecting on this artwork, Lenglet describes and unfolds the historical, socio-political and artistic layers connected to the local circumstances and private motivations leading to the intervention in an essay.

The publication originated as a collaboration with graphic designer Michaël Snitker and is enriched and illustrated with visual material gathered from local archives. It connects the artwork to the housing crisis, the rent strike from 1932 and the violent squatters riots from 1985 amongst others. Another layer to the publication is formed by the interior photographs Lenglet took during his COVID-19 quarantine in his self-created domestic cage. The publication gives an inside into the past, present and future of Schaepmanstraat - De Kempenaerstraat and could be read as a showcase of Lenglet’s work in general.

LUCAS LENGLET (1972) is a visual artist who graduated from the Gerrit Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam in 2000. In his practice, where he combines studio work and working in public space, he examines notions of inclusion and exclusion by means of the language of the built. He showed his installations and sculptures in solo presentations in amongst others, Stedelijk Museum Bureau Amsterdam, Palais de Tokyo, Stigter van Doesburg gallery and most recent Kröller-Müller Museum. Lenglet participated in various group shows in institutes like Atelier Néerlandais Paris, 3rd Athens Biennale, Martin-Gropius-Bau in Berlin and Kunstinstituut Melly in Rotterdam.

Mother’s Milk (re)constructs the story of Ilse, the author’s grandmother. Alienated in the psychiatric hospital of La Timone, in Marseille, Ilse resided there from 1952 until her death in 1983. Bringing together archival material, correspondences and conversations narrated via documentary poetry, Marie Ilse Bourlanges assembles the fragments of a family history hiding in plain sight.

An undertow of embodied memory meets the flow of institutional remembrance, drawing parallels between the discarded material of archives and the necessary mechanisms of physiological forgetting. Mother’s Milk offers an intimate journey into madness, intergenerational trauma transmission and the role of artistic research in imagining a possibility of healing.

MARIE ILSE BOURLANGES (1983) is an interdisciplinary artist, whose practice combines tangible, performative and written matter. Prompted to reveal how intimacy can resonate collectively to repair social and ecological tears, her work explores the reciprocity of strength and vulnerability.

This publication is part of Kunstinstituut Melly’s Name Change Initiative, which is in part supported by Stichting Droom en Daad, Fonds voor Cultuurparticipatie, BankGiro Loterij Fonds | DOEN Foundation, Stichting Elise Mathilde Fonds, J.E. Jurriaanse Foundation | Volkskracht, Prins Bernhard Cultuurfonds.

Published in a Dutch and English edition.

'The name change was premised on the criteria that the former name impinged upon a pursuit of social inclusivity, which is vital to the relevance and contribution of cultural practice in general.'

On January 27, 2021, the institution formerly known as Witte de With Center for Contemporary Art in Rotterdam was renamed Kunstinstituut Melly. The renaming was and is informed by local debates and international discussions; it is mobilized by ambitions that relate to social transformation, and by the felt responsibility in visualizing these changes, since the role as a contemporary art institution is presenting and discerning the present.

This book is about the arrival at such criteria and ideas, as much as it is about the intricacies involved in our institution’s name change. As suggested by the book’s title, Tools for Collective Learning , the aim for this publication is to be more of a toolbox than a document. It is made with the conviction that all vital change happens through collective learning; that recording oral histories and discursively articulating embedded experiences can further this cause.

The name Melly was inspired by Melly Shum Hates Her Job, an artwork by Ken Lum. This artwork takes the form of a billboard, and it has been displayed on the institution’s façade since 1990.

The concept of Eurasia evokes myriad different ideas across geological, ideological, cultural and artistic paradigms. Housing three quarters of the world’s population (as well as three quarters of the world’s energy resources), the Eurasian supercontinent is also home to a great plurality of cultures. It is a space where historical, contemporary and futuristic visions coexist, interact and mutate.

The publication EURASIA –An Atlas is a reader surveying the cultural and conceptual landscape of the Eurasia. Structured around approximately twenty keywords, it compiles texts from a variety of authors, historical documentation, and texts on the artistic practices of visual artists. Trans-historical in focus, EURASIA – An Atlas will offer theoretical and artistic insights into a progressive Eurasianism, engaging with diverse contributors and agents across Eurasia. Several texts have been commissioned to offer reflection on the notion of Eurasia from contributors across the fields of art, history and philosophy, forming a compendium of material for those interested in understanding the emerging reality of the new Eurasian age. Rooted in - but reaching beyond - the visual arts, EURASIA – An Atlas will be unique amongst publishing on this theme.

'The artists showed us that their post-Soviet reality is never an either/ or situation, it is not a monolith, but something fluid and subject to change. Adapting to circumstances; transcending territorial boundaries; exploring the archetypes, spaces in-between, ‘underwater’ processes, shapes of disrupted figures and pathways, and different passings of time without clear origins or futures.’ Elsbeth Dekker, Robbie Schweiger

| A journey from and through (post-) Soviet contexts ending in Dutch art collections.

Including interviews with Umida Akhmedova, Babi Badalov, Saodat Ismailova, Gulnara Kasmalieva & Muratbek Djumaliev, Taus Makhacheva, Yerbossyn Meldibekov, Almagul Menlibayeva, Maria Mkrtycheva, Furqat PalvanZade, Alexander Ugay.

Beginning in the Middle . Conversations on the Post-Sovie t, edited and compiled by Elsbeth Dekker and Robbie Schweiger, explores the works, lives and travels of artists coming from a (post-) Soviet context. The conversations delve deeper into questions of art and (de)colonisation in countries in the Caucasus and Central Asia, most of which recently celebrated their 30th anniversary of independence.

Departing from Dutch collections and exhibitions, the conversations try to grapple with questions on the meaning and relationships that these artworks and artists are enabling. Touching upon various notions of time, space and perception, it wonders how to include other stories and voices into Dutch collections and Western stories of art. Three travelogues by Furqat Palvan-Zade take these conversations to another time and place – all the way across Eurasia and back to the Netherlands.

| A publication that is close to the skin and won’t let you go.

| A collection of works on paper and watercolours, drawing, collages and sculptures.

| With text contributions by Merel Bem (author, lecturer, art historian, and copywriter), Gustan Asselbergs (philosopher, author, musician), and Ludo van Halem (art historian and curator).

Dutch artist Caren van Herwaarden uses a multimedia approach in her practice including works on paper and watercolours, drawings, collages, and sculptures. She is in search of finding the meaning of compassion, humanity, physicality, and erotica through her work. This results in art pieces that show strength in vulnerability, softness in mercilessness, and comfort in defeat. She focusses on bare beings, without any façade or frills. Because when in conflict, where you are not in control and the world is no longer feasible you must rely on others.

The artist’s work became darker, tangible, rawer, and more layered in the past years. To intensify the intimacy and the possibility to empathize she aims to create her work to be as physical and tangible as possible, to the point you can almost touch and smell it. This is exactly what TOUCH carries out, a publication that is close to the skin and won’t let you go.

This monograph is layered, sweltering, beastly, earthly, and raw, alternated by transparency, lightness, and simplicity of pencil drawings. The artworks interchange from light to ominous, dark, and monumental. From fast and hectic to forcibly slow-adagio.

CAREN VAN HERWAARDEN studied at the State Academy of Fine Arts in Amsterdam and AKI Academy of Art & Design. After graduating she worked at Leiden University in the anatomical collection to study the inside, the material from which we are built.

‘I have this lifelong fascination for the human body as a reservoir for our thoughts, doubts and fears.’

Caren van Herwaarden

‘It intrigues me that our body knows so much, also about the other. The memory and ‘intelligence’ do not only live in our brain. It is precisely the body, the skin, and the muscles that store memories.

Experiences are embedded in the body: the body memory. Our body can only tell our brain as much as our brain does to our body.’

Caren van Herwaarden

| An exploration of the sculpture’s relation to Rotterdam’s history and Gabo’s oeuvre.

| A recently completed restoration and the changing meaning of the sculpture in public space.

The spatial construction by Russian-American artist Naum Gabo from 1957 is one of the three key artworks making up Rotterdam’s unique international collection ‘Sculpture International Rotterdam’. Commissioned by department store the Bijenkorf, it is now situated in front of its building by architect Marcel Breuer, at the heart of the city on the Coolsingel. After a long-awaited restoration, this book describes the turbulent life of this artwork and its relationship with Rotterdam’s history.

The book opens with a foreword by Carel Blotkamp on Gabo’s place in the long tradition of interaction between architecture and sculpture. The prologue by artistic director of Sculpture International Rotterdam Dees Linders, explores the construction of meaning around this artwork. Next is the main text, written by art and culture historian Patricia van Ulzen, which researches into the origins and the reception of the sculpture on the Coolsingel from the very first conversations Gabo had with the management of the Bijenkorf in 1954 up until the unveiling ceremony in 1957. It includes the designing

and production processes. The following interlude by Siebe Thissen traces the Bijenkorf’s interest in visual art back to 1917. Toke van Helmond-Lehning then unveils the friendship between Naum Gabo and Dutch writer, historian and anarchist Arthur Lehning. This publication also features observations by Rotterdam-based artist Sjoerd Westbroek and a poem by Hester Knibbe. Ethical, artistic and technical dilemmas are examined by researcher and specialist in conservation and restoration Rutger Morelissen. At the end, a timeline by Eleonoor Jap Sam intertwining important events in the life of Gabo and his artwork for the Bijenkorf. IEF Capital, the current owner of the construction by Gabo completes the book with a letter to the reader.

While living in different locations around the world, Gabo used his art to fight for freedom of thought and imagination. His sculpture stands the test of time and continues to absorb new meanings over and over again.

34 www.cbkrotterdam.nl www.sculptureinternationalrotterdam.nl
‘The Bijenkorf sculpture has no title and is an abstract work. But of course Gabo was regularly asked what it represented, to which he would often give the enigmatic answer that it was “the absolute representation of itself”.’

| A collection of photographs exploring spatiality beautifully designed by Mainstudio.

With Doorways , visual artist Michiel Kluiters investigates how space (or spatiality) works in photography and how it can become an instrument for narration. A series of photographed spaces opens up a conversation and tells us intimate stories. These captured stills look like unfinished buildings or abandoned ruins, still under construction or already in decay. Are we looking at places that represent a possible dystopian future or the remnants of a utopian past? An oblique cinematic light collides with the walls of these spaces, suffusing them with a sense of mystery. Each depicted warped space conveys a feeling of confinement and introduces a temporal aspect – of something pointing towards a future completion or a lingering memory of an irrevocable past – which contributes to the inherent instability of these works.

MICHIEL KLUITERS (1971) is a Dutch visual artist. In his works he questions and reimagines the space that surrounds us and our relationship with it. Although his approach is quite diverse, photography is a constant. Structural elements of it, such as its reproducibility, its so-called transparency and its way of evoking spatiality are the foundation of his practice. As playful as Kluiters work might be, his aim is to question our idea of what it means to make the world visible through technological means. Or rather use photography’s very existence on the borderline between presence and absence to make something both visible and invisible at the same time.

RAABJERG by Danish artist Rune Peitersen explores the changing landscape of Northern Jutland (Denmark) from the last Ice Age until today. From the 16th century up to 19th century, violent sand drifts due to human activity and climate change have turned a once fertile landscape into a barren wasteland. Throughout the years, kings and elected parliaments have enacted laws in hopes of retrieving the original landscape. After two hundred years, they succeeded by reintroducing plants to the dunes. Nevertheless, this ‘success’ has transformed the landscape into a controlled state, especially suited for tourism. Today these dunes are considered ‘natural’ and efforts have shifted in preserving them. However, it is in the very nature of a landscape to constantly transform itself. How then can we preserve transition?

RUNE PEITERSEN (1971) now lives and works in Amsterdam and Brussels. He graduated with a BA from the Royal Academy in The Hague in 1999 and later received a MA from the Frank Mohr Institute in Groningen in 2001.

His work has been exhibited internationally. In his work, he attempts to identify and problematise some of the deep-rooted (visual) narratives and systems of thought that lie at the base of the construction of our contemporary societal structures. In recent years the starting point often involves two opposite positions within a given system, e.g. an observer and the observed. The relationship between these two is then used to describe the system itself.

| Includes a poster of the (woodcut) artwork Will of Nature (2011) by Ruchama Noorda.

| Beautifully designed with coloured book-edge finishing and linen cover.

As Above, So Below documents the work by Amsterdambased artist Ruchama Noorda over a twenty-year period and explores the esoteric system of belief that links her practice to the early 20th century Lebensreformers, the European avantgarde, and today’s no growth environmentalist movement. This book offers a comprehensive overview of the artist’s installations, drawings, videos, sculptures, and performances with written commentary by the artist and by California-based art and cultural critic Dick Hebdige. The reader is invited to enter Ruchama Noorda’s world where dreaming mirrors action, where life and work, prana and carnality, microcosm and macrocosm open into one another.

RUCHAMA NOORDA is an artist who uses a variety of media and materials in performances and installations. She graduated with a BFA from the Royal Academy in The Hague in 2002 and went on to complete her MFA at the Sandberg Institute in Amsterdam in 2004. She was awarded the Stroom Stimuleringsprijs (The Hague) in 2002, and the Hermine van Bers Prijs (Leiden) in 2007. In 2015 she was awarded a doctoral degree in the PhDArts program from the Academy of Creative and Performing Arts (ACPA) at the University of Leiden for research undertaken into the early 20th century Lebensreform movement.

DICK HEBDIGE is emeritus professor of Studio Art and Film and Media Studies at the University of California, Santa Barbara. His current research interests include media topographies, Desert Studies, installation art, sub/counter cultures and performative criticism. He has written extensively on contemporary art and design, media and cultural theory, popular music and subculture.

| A book by hair & make-up artist and art director Alexander van der Heide and photographer Sander Coers.

| A conversation on masculinity’s definitions, experiences, and expressions through texts and images.

| An attempt to find oneself and to understand what masculinity is outside stereotype imposed limits.

The book project started from a conversation between the authors and five peers, all assigned male at birth in an attempt to understand what masculinity actually is. It is a dive into the place masculinity holds in today’s young people lives. There are moments, set by places and people around us, that leave room for a more flexible way of expressing ourselves. Through text and images collected over a period of three months, Alexander van der Heide and Sander Coers conclude that masculinity is not rigid but rather performative. The outcome is a collection of portraits that capture the fluidity of the subject’s masculinity. Included are a personal introduction by the makers, an in-depth essay exploring notions of masculinity, the short story ‘the Barbershop’ and an epilogue by Nathalie Hartjes, director of MAMA.

ALEXANDER VAN DER HEIDE (1998) is currently working both as a curator for VISIONARY Agency in Amsterdam and as an independent creative producer and make-up artist. Specialised in fashion photography, he has collaborated with Vogue China, de Bijenkorf, Mirror Mirror Magazine and G-star. He has a BA in Art & Design from the Willem de Kooning Academie in Rotterdam.

SANDER COERS (1997) is a Rotterdam-based photographer and the recipient of the Ron Mandos Photo Talent Award 2021. By investigating identity and heritage through stories told in colourful, and seductive stills, he attempts to visualise through his work memories evoked by echoes of his youth days. He crafts melancholic, romantic and dream-like realities reflecting his own personal stories and those of his contemporaries.

A hymn of what the Polar North sounds like encouraging us to listen to its magical sounds.

Under commission by the Anchorage Museum and the National Geographic Society, Stuart Hyatt explores what the Polar North sounds like by recording its earthly sounds. The book is divided according to stages of a transcendent psychological journey: Invocation, Reverie, Rhapsody and Quieting. With colourful illustrations, photographs and a digital audio we are guided into listening to Earth’s sounds.

In Invocation Hanna Benn transcribes a leitmotif of her vocal duet with the planet while Ashon Crawley opens up the landscape with a hymn. Followed by a vibrant precolonial tectonic report from the Andes by Gustavo Valdivia, in Reverie Paige Lewis unfolds a quantum fantasia atop pixelated spectrograms.

To make sense of both familiar and strange topographies, Joan Naviyuk Kane, Kashina and Ishmael Angaluuk Hope explore sensory terrains in Rhapsody.

In Quieting Anaïs Duplan and Laraaji listen to newly found harmonies and dissonances. As a conclusion, Debi Kilb and a consortium of seismologists offer a postlude foundation built on hard science.

German duo Haubitz + Zoche were among the first artists in Germany to address climate crisis in their work. The book Blind Date with the Future gives a comprehensive overview of the artistic projects on ecological issues such as sea level rise or dwindling resources that they have realised between 2006 and 2022. In the context of current climate debates their oeuvre is becoming increasingly relevant.

An art-historical essay by Ann-Katrin Günzel and an interview between Franziska Kunze and Stefanie Zoche provide background information on the artworks. The text section is supplemented by two scientific essays: Stefan Rahmstorf, one of the leading climate researchers, summarizes the current state of knowledge about sea-level rise, while Jens Soentgen offers a philosophical-scientific reflection on the mobilization of matter in the Anthropocene.

STEFANIE ZOCHE (1965) and SABINE HAUBITZ (1959–2014) worked together for sixteen years. After Haubitz’ death in 2014, Zoche has continued the work in her own name. As an artist duo they worked with a variety of media such as photography, video, sculpture, and installation, reflecting on urban space, architecture, and the element water. In later years of their collaboration, climate crisis and other ecological issues became the focus of their work. Meanwhile Stefanie Zoche has turned her attention to sand as a dwindling resource and is currently working on alternative building materials to cement. Haubitz + Zoche were represented at the Havana Biennial in 2012. In 2007 they received the German Photo Book Award for Sinai Hotels , in 2016 the German Architecture Photo Book Award for Hybrid Modernism .

| Five years of travel to five of the fast-growing cities in the world: Kinshasa, Lima, Yangon, Meddellín and Addis Ababa.

| Insights on urban development beyond statistics and into an intimate window on what it takes to develop inclusive cities.

| Featured in an exhibition commissioned by the United Nations and in an award-winning interactive documentary.

By 2050 more than 70% of the world’s population will be living in urban areas. Cities in Africa, Latin America and Asia in particular are growing like never before. Photographer Yvonne Brandwijk and journalist Stephanie Bakker embarked on a journey to five of the up-and-coming cultural, creative and economic hubs of tomorrow: Kinshasa, Lima, Yangon, Medellín and Addis Ababa. The publication is the result of five years of memories, documentations, adventures and research. The reader is invited to plunge unprepared into different cities and situations, roam around them freely and with an open mind, discover the strengths of each city.

Stephanie Bakker and Yvonne Brandwijk teach us to look into small-scale projects that could grow into something big, into ordinary people with extraordinary stories. The personal stories of these people open an intimate window and provide insights into what it takes to develop inclusive cities that offer space for unique individuals and personal growth.

Stories from the Future Cities project have appeared across a wide range of international media (including newspapers de Volkskrant, die Welt, El Pais, Le Monde, de Morgen ). The interactive documentary won a World Press Photo Award for Digital Storytelling and the exhibition commissioned by the Unites Nations was created for the Habitat III summit in Quito, Ecuador.

jaune, geel, gelb, yellow. Monochrome discusses the failure, collapse and historicisation of the modernist ideals embraced by Theo van Doesburg, set against the current political backdrop of mass protest. The book is an extension of Antonis Pittas’ artist-in-residence experience at the Van Doesburghuis, which coincided with the yellow vests protests. There, Pittas turned the house into a performative murder crime scene of modernity.

The book is characterized by a reflective yellow foil, generally used for traffic barriers and road signs. The material evokes associations with danger, visibility, warning, protection, toxicity, safety and control. It features photographs taken by Pittas printed in silver on safety yellow-tinted paper. The title jaune, geel, gelb, yellow. Monochrome. is borrowed from van Doesburg’s Dadaist magazine Mécano , published about 100 years ago.

‘Modernist architecture is particularly indebted to the idea of an environment that can bring about changes, especially in human behaviour.’

| BioPartner 5: New lab building shows potential for largescale reuse of building materials.

| A building as a statement on sustainability.

BioPartner 5 at Leiden Bio Science Park is the first Paris Proof building in the Netherlands. Popma ter Steege Architecten (PTSA) designed the business building with offices, laboratories, and meeting facilities as a gathering place for the campus.

The architects developed a design for a demountable building and a host of ideas to reduce the consumption of raw materials, energy, and water. This included a strategy of scouting out potentially reusable materials in the course of the design process and purchasing them themselves. That this would lead to the purchase of the entire main supporting structure from used steel was not foreseen at the time.

The new Biopartner 5 laboratory at the Leiden Bio Science Park was constructed from as much as 165,000 kg of steel that had formed the base of a nearby university building for 50 years. The steel was dismantled, moved 750 metres, processed on site, and then rebuilt as a 'donor skeleton' for the new building. Through its unique scale and method, BioPartner 5 shows the promise of large-scale reuse in construction. From the entire reused steel supporting structure to the internal walls, from the floor finish to the toilets.

Reuse to Reduce shows the future of architecture through the process of building the new Biopartner 5 laboratory.

Popma ter Steege Architects view the pressing challenges facing the world as an inseparable part of their work. Design-wise, the PTSA investigates the new aesthetics of circular building. In recent years, they have worked on various progressive tasks. From energy-neutral renovation to a circular product label. With their Nucleus Building, they won the 2019 Rhineland Architecture Prize.

“No longer is a building a monument to one institution or person, and no longer is it a sink of materials. It is rather a celebration of what human beings have made until then, and an opening towards the possibility of new ways of living within the ruins and scaffolding we create today.”
Aaron Betsky

The woods and heaths north of Arnhem have been the scene of many military activities. What once was an exercise ground for field artillery, became during the Second World War one of the largest military airfields in occupied territory. To prevent recognition from the air, the German Luftwaffe built hundreds of buildings designed as farmhouses and barns to blend into the existing landscape. During the Cold War new buildings were added and large areas of the northern Arnhem edge are still inaccessible to the general public today. Since 2007, almost 200 buildings have been preserved and have become part of one of the largest listed sites (rijksmonumenten) in the Netherlands. The included historical photographs, GPS coordinates and maps are for curious readers who wish to embark on a journey through a forbidden landscape.

| A guide along the traces that tell the story of a hidden military landscape in the woods of Arnhem.

| Includes historical photographs, GPS coordinates and a map.

HANS JUNGERIUS (1969) is a Dutch artist and explorer. Due to his interest in landscape and history, he organises projects and excursions in the Netherlands and abroad. Jungerius also did two television series entitled StraalVoorbij (‘right past’ in Dutch) about places we walk past by without noticing. He is also the initiator of the repurposing of two former sites of the Ministry of Defence along the northern edge of Arnhem as a creative and working area known as Buitenplaats Koningsweg.

OTHERGUIDES is a series of books to encourage readers to explore little-known regions, often with a still young history. In combination with photographs and maps, the untold stories of these landscapes form an intriguing whole and are witnesses of the ever-changing and unpredictable roles between humans and their surroundings. The series lets the reader experience what other travel literature prefers to remain silent about.


What is inspiration? What inspires you? How does inspiration move? How do we constantly inspire each other? How does creative inspiration itself change through each unique personal experience? Designer Anna Bates attempts to answer these questions with a glance into the inspirational impulses essential to creative work processes. The project started by asking one architect to create their own work following a stimulus given by Theo Van Doesburg’s painting The Rhythm of a Russian Dance. The work would then be passed on to other architects, who in turn would draw inspiration from it for their own subsequent work. Weaving an ever-growing web of conversations, interplay and inspiration, the chain began in 2017 with the work by American architect Gary Bates of Space Group. The project was exhibited at the Aedes Architecture Forum in Berlin (2019). The 111 architects involved in the project contributed through paintings, sketches, photographs, architecture pieces and even poetry.

The province of Gelderland in the Netherlands inherits many castles, country houses and estates. Together they form historic estate landscapes that partially determines the regional character. Urbanism and climate change have had significant effects on its protection and management. An abundance and a shortage of water, spatial fragmentation and increasing pressure from recreation and tourism are only a few of the challenges that need to be addressed. The complexity of such challenges requires a regional perspective to fully comprehend the coherence and systematic relationships between the estates and to help find common ground in which stakeholders can work together to increase the resilience and adaptability of these valuable landscapes.

Resilient Estate Landscapes Gelderland offers a landscapebased regional approach to understanding, planning and designing heritage landscapes. It elaborates a preservationthrough-planning approach that takes spatial development

with historical landscape structures as a basis. It aims at engaging stakeholders in a meaningful process of visualisation/ communication to invent spatial strategies and principles founded on co-creation and collaboration while employing spatial design as an essential means. As a powerful roadmap for the protection and development of future-proof estate landscape, the presented practice-oriented approach has implementations in policy, planning and design. By showcasing best practices in the region and beyond, this publication is a valuable resource for anyone interested in the past, present and future of heritage estate landscapes.

Resilient Estate Landscapes Gelderland results from a collaborative project of TU Delft Landscape Architecture, the Province of Gelderland and heritage organization Gelders Genootschap in the framework of the Characteristic and Sustainable Heritage programme (KaDEr) and the EU-Interreg project Innocastle.

The interior is fundamental to architecture. Regardless of its scale, it is informed and shaped by ideas. These ideas appear in architecture in the great variety of interiors that we assume as public: those spaces within which we consider ourselves as free individuals, within which we are among others and are conscious of our place in society and in the world. Public interiors have been designed to affect and condition our consciousness, our behaviour and our relation to others and to authority. During the course ‘The Architecture of the Interior’ at TU Delft, Mark Pimlott gave a series of lectures on the public interiors in the West through history, focusing on significant ideas that have contributed to their realisation and reception. Based on this series of lectures called ‘Fundamentals’, Pimlott proposes six interpretative themes – the Garden, the Palace, the Ruin, the Shed, the Machine and the Network – through which public interior could be considered. The chosen examples form a kind of canon and submitted to the context of these themes, they offer a further interpretation of the public interior as manifestations of ideas inscribed within material culture.

Brought up in Montréal (Canada) MARK PIMLOTT (1958) is an artist, architectural designer and writer whose practice encompasses installation, photography, film, art for public spaces and architecture: particularly interiors. He is assistant professor of architectural design at TU Delft’s Chair of Interiors Buildings Cities. Pimlott is the author of Without and within: essays on territory and their interior (episode publishers, 2007) and In passing: Mark Pimlott photographs (Jap Sam Books, 2010). Numerous journals of architecture have published his articles and essays. Among his realised work: Neckinger Mills, London (1988; 1994); Red House interiors,

‘Pimlott’s understanding of the interior is broad: everything from the borders of a nation to a garden, a temple, a room, a shopping mall or a city. His categories of interiors — Garden, Palace, Ruin, Shed, Machine and Network — are enough in themselves to provoke and the book is a fascinating and readable study of how the public interior shapes our everyday existence and articulates the nature of the society that builds them.’

Pimlott’s work has also been exhibited solo at Studiolo and 1995 (Todd Gallery, London, 1995/1998); All things pass (Stroom, The Hague, 2008). His installation Piazzasalone in collaboration with Tony Fretton was shown in the Corderie dell’Arsenale at the 12th International Architecture Biennale in Venice.

| The oldest award in the Netherlands for talented visual artists and architects.

Prix de Rome 2022 Architecture was organized by the Mondriaan Fund in close collaboration with the Creative Industries Fund NL, and Het Nieuwe Instituut, on behalf of the Dutch Ministry of Education, Culture and Science.

| With a keynote essay by Ola Hassanain, who leads a critical spatial practice as a visual artist and trained architect. In her work, she focuses on the subtle politics of space—namely, how built spaces react to and reinforce violence from state entities.

| The nominees are Arna Mačkić, Dividual (Andrea Bit and Maciej Wieczorkowski), Lesia Topolnyk, and Studio KIWI (Kim Kool and Willemijn van Manen).

The theme of Prix de Rome 2022 Architecture is Healing Sites .

In a time where labour issues and climate issues go hand in hand, this edition of the Prix de Rome Architecture calls to rethink and redesign spatial practices. Architecture has been complicit in establishing the ecocidal legacies of capitalism, colonialism, and imperialism. How can architects, urbanists, and landscape architects reflect upon and rearticulate the way they work in undoing these legacies?

The international jury of the Prix de Rome (Carson Chan, Alessandra Covini, Afaina de Jong, Jan Jongert, and Dirk Sijmons, technical chair Syb Groeneveld) has selected four nominees out of 53 anonymous entries for the shortlist of Prix de Rome Architecture.

‘This number, the twenty-ninth, of Footprint explores architecture’s intersection with media, politics, and aesthetics through the lens of populism.

recent years, the link between architecture and populism has resurfaced in the form oh heated polemics.’

29 aims at exploring the architectural relations to populism intended as the political approach that strives to appeal to the “common” public. It examines architecture’s intersection with media, politics and aesthetics. From Nazi Germany to Trump’s presidency the use of architecture and its relationship with ideologies is reflected upon, as well as how architectural aspirations are reshaped in the light of different populist ramifications. This issue is an open inquiry into how architecture has been instrumentalised as a propaganda tool and how it has changed in accordance with social, economic and political determinants. Including both traditional and visual essays, it ends with an interview to Mary McLeod.

The book is divided into three sections: a first exploration of background and characteristics of polder areas guides the reader to a mapped overview of global and regional polder landscapes. Some of these landscapes are then selected, analysed and described by local experts. Polder Landscapes of the World aims at providing insights into regional variations and the challenges they face because of intensive cultivation and habitation. The landscapes are addressed as cultural expressions rather than just a mere result of water engineering. These areas were usually reclaimed for people to work and live there, establishing landscapes with a rich variety of cultural identity and special, functional, ecological characteristics.

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 more.

The book presents the pending architecture throughout Athens. It engages the spectator in a process of viewing parts of the void in the history of the city under an architectural, social and political light. The skeletons of polykatoikia are emblematic of the development of modern Greece throughout the second half of the 20th century. By treating the unfinished buildings as study objects, the book deals with the politics of urban space. A different chronicle of the development of modern Athens is built with photographs, archival documents and found artefacts. The contributions by Brooke Holmes, Olaton Issaias and Elpida Karaba critically reflect on the phenomenon from different perspectives. This atlas introduces a method for extracting forgotten memories and hidden structures, suggesting an alternative reading of the city.
