Strik’s book is a fluent stream of images and words in a strong connection to each other where the look inside and the outside happens simultaneously. The images continue within a long historic artistic line of visionary artists who probe the tresholds of human essence. Strik’s intense, poetic practice explores the possibilities of metamorphosis and the process of (artistic) creation. In conversation with aspects from El Greco, Goya, Darwin, Freud, Munch, Ensor or Duchamp her approach is archaic in a higly alert way. The viewer will be confronted with energetically-charged apparations transmuted into shapes, portraits and figures on paper, now fixed as definitive states of being. Constantly shifting between monumentality and intimacy, her figures are a visual stimulation that prompt the viewer to rethink the human condition today. The book ties in the exhibition by Elly Strik in Museum Reina Sofia in Madrid.

Ricardo Brey  Que le importa al tigre una raya más Bart De Baere, John Welchman, Jimmie Durham Sandra Sosa, Thomas Mießgang, Jesse McKee AsaMER April 2014 ISBN 978 94 9177 535 2 € 35 (tbc)

This book can be seen as the core – or at least a main synthesis - of the overall aspiration of Ricardo Brey for his upcoming project in Cuba. It has therefore been developed as a separate undertaking. While it is not an artist book in the traditional sense, it is definitively a project by an artist. Its ambition is to create a sense of the artistic space that Brey wants to offer, with a polyphony of voices and an immersive sphere in which a quality of behavior is of prime importance. It will offer an integral view of his oeuvre, in which the historical is integrated but the focus is on present validity. This book comes out on the occasion of Brey’s eponym show, which will open on April 10th at the Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes, La Havana, Cuba.

SADAHARU HORIO Atsuo Yamamoto, Axel Vervoordt

Norio Imai (°Osaka, 1946) joined the avant-garde movement “Gutai Art Association” in 1965 and became their youngest member. Gutai was the most influential artists’ collective and artistic movement in postwar Japan and among the most important international avant-garde movements of the 1950s and ’60s. Imai creates a monumental, monochrome white silence in space. White is the ultimate colour, a non-colour combining all colours in perfect harmony. White is a full emptiness. Imai’s work goes beyond form and emanates a cosmic force. With his pure and still whiteness, he incorporates the true concepts of originality and creativity, what all Gutai members strived for.

Monography on the artist Sadaharu Horio, born in 1939 in Hyogo Ward, a working-class section of Kobe in which he still lives.

Women’s Work. Is Never Done brings together the twenty most important essays by inter­nationally acclaimed art critic and curator Catherine de Zegher, who has recently been appointed director of the Museum of Fine Arts, Ghent. Her essays on female artists, which have now been collected for the first time, cover a period of thirteen years. Over the years de Zegher’s essays launched and consolidated the careers of such artists as Joëlle Tuerlinckx, Ann Veronica Janssens, Eva Hesse and Bracha L. Ettinger. Thanks to de Zegher, these artists are now wildly acclaimed and acknowledged in the art world for their cutting edge, ground­breaking artistic activism that has shaped female artistic practice from the late 19th century onwards.

MER. PAPER KUNSTHALLE

Rebel Rebels tracks a movement that has as yet not been historicized in Europe on the subject of AIDS activism by various artistic collectives in New York in the 1980s. The approach is historic, yet activist-based, and combines a look at graphic design, with social, political, art historical, and curatorial reflections. Rebel Rebels analyzes some of the activist art experiences born in New York between 1979 and 1989, when in response to a conservative political and cultural climate artists began to work in groups and to realize projects concretely addressed to the problems of society. The book is conceived as a tribute to all those activist art collectives born in New York City at the beginning of the 1980s, united by a common refusal of traditional aesthetic criteria, the synthesis of artistic strategies and commercial advertising for political propagandistic ends, and by a willingness to take direct action to end the AIDS crisis. Rebel Rebels aims at demonstrating that art can play a crucial role in social and political change, when artists gather in groups, or collectives, in order to cooperate with other communities and pursue a common goal.

Is it possible to combine the historical dimension of the art academy with the intention of becoming a laboratory for advanced artistic research? The double publication CONTRADIcTIONS & PRO-POSITIONS is part of a strategy to face this challenge. The first volume, CONTRADIcTIONS intends to be a critical biography of a well-respected art school. Fifteen essays by experts and scholars on the history of the Antwerp Academy shed a light on different aspects of its rich history. The second volume PRO-POSITIONS is more international in scope, and contradicts and interacts with the first. PRO-POSITIONS: Art and / as Education focuses on artist-driven pedagogies and educational projects, with different artists and authors contributing to this anthology of alternatives.

Fostering a cross-pollination between the digital and the physical, Nick Ervinck (°1981, Belgium) explores the boundaries between various media. As a pioneer in 3D-printed sculptures the artist takes a vanguard position in the field of digital technology while at the same time his works hold numerous references to the tradition of sculpture and architecture. This first monograph focuses on this tension between innovation and tradition and gives an inside to the artist’s abundant archive. The concepts body, building, history and nature that are crucial for the artist’s oeuvre, are the leitmotifs in the book. The authors explore Ervinck’s work from different angles while a great quantity of images show the genesis of form, some of his most succesfull works and futuristic ideas that till this day were impossible to create.

No Obstacle, No Image makes reference to the fact that the majority of Bellinkx’ projects are extremely hard to realize. Whenever he presents his drawings and models, the public is always surprized to learn that these are the precursors of still to develop projects. Bellinkx always pushes the limits of what can safely be realized: the path along the realisation of his projects is covered with potential failures and tricky obstacles. These obstacles are a necessity in his work. This publication covers the last ten years of Bellinkx’ artistic practice, and offers insights into his preliminary works, his drawings, models and final realisations. Ruben Bellinkx’ show ‘Stasis’ on display until March 2nd at Be Part, Waregem, received ample press coverage in Flanders.

Heidi Voet’s multi-disciplinary artistic practice is characterized by her playful and transformative use of objects to make critical social commentaries about everyday life. She transforms the banal into something wondrous, and in the process unearths concerns, connections and consequences that underlie the moment. Heidi Voet frequently deploys popular images or objects found in contemporary Chinese culture as central subjects in her works since her move to China in 2006. For one of her best-known series, Voet created elaborately-patterned rugs by weaving thousands of colorful digital watches. The watches all have synchronized alarms, but inevitably malfunction and chime off beat over time creating an impromptu electronic sound installation.

Ever since its foundation in 1990, design studio Visionandfactory has always played a prominent role in the Belgian & international graphic design scene.

Instead of a complete overview, this book offers a selection, a kaleidoscopic view of Visionandfactory’s multifaceted output. The selected work is contextualised with texts offering insight into the studio’s history and work processes as well as into Hugo Puttaert’s vision on design as a discipline and the social responsibility of the designer. With a split-fountain cover and hundreds of colour pages, this book provides a striking illustration of the credo that is so central to his vision, ‘Think in Colour’.

This monograph features a new body of work, which artist Ida Ekblad realized for a solo exhibition at De Vleeshal in Middelburg, The Netherlands (November-December 2013). Fundamental in Ekblad’s work is an interest in the historical perspective as a central element of our time. Through combining historical perspective in a contemporary cultural and social element, Ekblad gives an answer to the superficial connotation of a contemporary society based on speed and consumption. The use of discarded material to realize assemblages is a translation of the recuperation of the element of history to embrace a more complex relationship between art and time.

Hobbs McLaughlin is a continuation of Marie Angeletti’s 2013 exhibition, inside the living room of a Balfron Tower apartment, a Goldfinger high rise in East London. The publication sees Angeletti further develop a web of relationships, part-real part-fictional, centred around the flat and people involved in it. For the exhibition she photographed the two girls who run the space and an artist friend who had shown there previously, images which were shown alongside other figures and scenes. For this publication, Angeletti mixes installation shots and images from the show, photographs from the opening night and works by artist-friends who have also exhibited in the flat. Angeletti’s images move toward an awareness of social contexts; they underline how human relationships, and communities of people in which one associates oneself, are intrinsically linked to the construction of one’s identity. She shows how the conditions in which one works, the way relationships are formed, and the spaces one occupies are all interconnected, modifying the manner in which artwork is seen.

Opatishawockalocka: a Native American place name that was shortened in 1926 to become Opa-locka, Florida, an incorporated city, classified as Moorish Revival. Drafted by architect Bernhardt E. Muller and city planner Clinton Mckenzie to the intiative of aviation pioneer Glenn Curtiss and cattle rancher James Bright. The themed city was constructed inbetween set prop and reality and created at the intersection of planes, trains, boats and the automobile. This fantasy-based garden city suburb of Miami drew its inspiration and promoted itself through themes made popular by the book 1001 Arabian Nights and the film The Thief of Bagdad (1924). Opa-locka’s complex trajectory has led it to being frequently quoted, acting as an adjective in contemporary hip-hop music.

Paper Kunsthalle, 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.

Throughout his artistic practice, Lopez-Menchero has also found a unique way to present his art via architecture, by actively using the public space, institutionalized spaces and so-called non-spaces within today’s society as his arena. These spaces form the backdrop for his frolic performances, his video’s, installations, drawings, paintings and artist books of which Trying to be… is the most recent.

Antoni Tàpies  Lo Sguardo dell’Artista Walter Hartsarich, Daniela Ferretti, Toni Tàpies, Natasha Hébert, Axel Vervoordt MER. Paper Kunsthalle & Axel Vervoordt Foundation April 2013 ISBN 978 94 9177 507 9 € 45

The Catalan artist Antoni Tàpies’ life (1923–2012) was marked by existential questioning. Philosophers, religious thinkers, scientists, Old Masters and contemporary artists alike influenced his artistic practice. Tàpies’ impulse to collect stemmed directly from this fascination. Constantly seeking a link between the many cultures, geographies and epochs of humanity, his spiritual quest typified all his artistic preoccupations. The 2013 exhibition Tàpies. Lo sguardo dell’artista (The eye of the artist) at Palazzo Fortuny, Venice, presents a thoughtful selection of Tàpies’ own work in the broader context of his collection.The intimacy of the house of Mariano Fortuny, himself a kaleidoscopic collector, extends the dialogue. This book endeavors to convey the spirit of Tàpies’ art and his extraordinary eye as both an artist and a collector.

L’ opéra, pour Wagner, est plus qu’un genre artistique. C’est un filtre à travers lequel le monde apparaît, un cristal dans lequel il se réfracte – c’est une pensée du monde. Tous ses opéras racontent une histoire de rédemption, et il vit lui-même dans la conviction que le monde qui l’entoure doit être sauvé par l’art. L’opéra hors de soi, c’est l’opéra qui passe de la scène à la salle et de la salle à la rue; c’est l’histoire d’un art comme pensée du monde. Car l’art et la pensée sont indissociables pour Wagner, non seulement parce qu’il ne cesse de méditer sur l’art et sur sa place dans la société, mais aussi parce qu’il nourrit son œuvre aux sources de pensée les plus diverses. Le bicentenaire de la naissance de Wagner est une bonne occasion d’esquisser un parcours sur les traces d’une pensée variée, colorée, parfois contestable, mais toujours entière et engagée. Philosophie, histoire, politique, religion: Wagner a cherché se positionner sur tous ces terrains, estimant qu’il était du devoir de l’artiste de changer le monde.

Imagine a museum in which the portrait of Carlotta Valdes, an important prop in Alfred Hitchcock’s Vertigo, hangs on a wall next to the painted portrait of the title character of Otto Preminger’s Laura and opposite the uncanny portraits of the desired or murdered women in Fritz Lang’s Scarlet Street, George Cukor’s Gaslight, and Nicholas Ray’s Born to Be Bad. In an adjacent gallery, the visitor of this imaginary museum can contemplate the portraits of patriarchs that feature in films such as House of Strangers, Suspicion, Gilda, and Strangers on a Train. This is precisely the concept of this book. Dark Galleries deals with American (and some British) films of the 1940s and 1950s, in which a painted portrait plays an important part in the plot or the mise-en-scène. Particularly noir crime thrillers, gothic melodramas, and ghost stories feature painted portraits that seem to have a magical power over their beholders.

MORE LIGHT The Fifth Moscow Biennale of Contemporary Art Catherine de Zegher, Svetlana Boym, Noemi Smolik, Souchou Yao, Pascal Gielen, Alexei Penzin, Keti Chukhrov

Edouard Léon Théodore Mesens (1903–1971) was a main figure in twentieth-century European art. He was known as the “talisman of surrealism”. Like a collage, his artistic vocation comprised various fragments: he was a composer, poet, publisher, photographer, exhibition maker and above all a passionate promoter of art. In the early 1920s E.L.T. MESENS played an active role in the European art scene, becoming friends with Tristan Tzara, Theo van Doesburg, Erik Satie and other artists. He appointed himself one of the driving forces of the surrealist movement. His life was entirely devoted to imagination and poetry. Discover l’amour fou in The Star Alphabet by E.L.T. MESENS. This book is available in three different language editions: ISBN 978 94 9177 512 3 (FR / € 65 / HC) ISBN 978 94 9177 510 9 (NL / € 65 / HC) ISBN 978 94 9177 511 6 (EN / € 39 / SC)

More Light brings together the works of over seventy international artists represented at this year’s 5th Moscow Biennale of Contemporary Art. Curated by Catherine de Zegher in close collaboration with Joseph Backstein and today’s protagonists in contemporary Russian art, this edition of the Moscow Biennale draws in large parts on Kasimir Malevich’s opera Victory of the Sun premiered in 1913 at the Luna Park in Saint Petersburg.

BACKLIST

Wie het eerste deel van het boek bekijkt, zal merken dat Robert Devriendt zijn reeksen minischilderijen ziet als scènes van een groot verhaal, als verschillende hoofdstukken van een roman of film. De schilder schort in die reeksen het lineaire tijdsverloop op, zoomt in op geheimzinnige details (een supermooie auto, de ‘perfecte’ blonde vrouw, een bos, een taxidermist, een bebloed T-shirt …), alludeert op oude schilderijen, tv-beelden, reclamefoto’s, films, populaire bladen… Er zijn wellicht verbanden, maar welke? Er is een scenario, maar waarvan? Wat er zeker is: de zorgvuldige aandacht en de sensuele liefde voor het schilderen, het strelen van de huid van het doek, dat hunkert naar een creatieve waarnemer.

MER. PAPER KUNSTHALLE

CONTRADIcTIES is a critical biography of one of the oldest art academies in the world and the first monograph that is dedicated to its history. The Antwerp Royal Academy of Fine Arts was the result of an initiative by the Antwerp painter David Teniers the Younger. Its foundation in 1663 marked the beginning of a rich history that is being celebrated today. Fifteen experts were invited to write a chapter of this history. Their stories highlight different aspects of the academy’s foundation and its evolution through four centuries. The book kicks of with the 20th century and ends with the 17th, the 19th century being the turning point in the academy’s history. Attention is also given to the building history, the relationships with Antwerp and to the rise and breakthrough of the famous fashion department. Apart from many previously unpublished visual documents, the book contains a detailed chronology.

In 2011, Goele De Bruyn travelled to China on the invitation of Jiawen Hou, artist and artistic director of Casuallocations Art Space in Beijing. The reason for the trip was a new presentation of Les Mains Sales, which Goele De Bruyn exhibited in 2010 at MAC’s, the Museum of Contemporary Art in Grand Hornu, Belgium. Les Mains Sales has a fairly long history. In 1998, Goele De Bruyn began collecting small remnants of bars of soap that she received from friends and family members. Today, this collection includes about 350 pieces. In response to Jiawen Hou’s invitation to present Les Mains Sales at Casuallocations Art Space, she decided to remake the entire project. A work that originally took ten years had to be completed in just a few weeks. By shifting the emphasis from saving and collecting the pieces of soap to actively looking for them in a country where the artist knows neither the language nor the customs, a completely new work is created.

A No Can Make Space is a book as a choreography. For this publication choreographer Daniel Linehan has gathered texts and poetic fragments, which he used as part of his choreographic practice. He organized these writings into several chapters according to their main themes: repetition, sequence, rhythm, value, change, tension, silence. A No Can Make Space is an artistic project of collecting and categorizing, a method Linehan often uses when making dance performances. Thus this book becomes a way to think about how making a book can be an extension of making a dance.

On connectivity offers readers some insight into the world of a2o-architects. It explains why a2o’s designs and buildings are connective. It connects the ‘now’ with the past and the future, with the importance of context and the autonomy of architecture. It connects engagement, craftsmanship and imagination in a contemporary way. The work of a2o-architects is situated in Belgium and the Meuse­- Rhine Euroregion. a2o’s architecture occupies an area of tension between two realities, which also play a central role in this book: the main story, the leitmotiv, about its philosophy and the creative process. And the particular, the tangible, about contemporary themes and architecture. The two storylines are interwoven throughout the book, allowing text and images to make their own connections. This is a book about connectivity, about us dreaming about the perfect place to live or to work.

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. Paper Kunsthalle, 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 fourth volume in the Cylinder series.

Drawings est une publication de l’artiste Niels Trannois. Construite comme une lecture des modes opératoires de l’artiste; comment les oeuvres se fomentent, s’articulent entre elles et dessinent une pratique. «drawings» est pensé comme une partition de musique, constitué d’une «ouverture» écrite par Yann Chevallier, de huit «dessins» que sont les textes préparatoires aux oeuvres dont certaines reproductions ponctuent le catalogue ainsi que des «notes de bas de page» que sont les images précédant ou suivant la réalisation des-dites oeuvres. Ecrit en regard de ces «notes de bas de page», conçu comme un «adagio» en forme d’épilogue ouvert, un texte de Guillaume Olendorff vient clore le mouvement du livre.

MOP (Museum Of Photography) aims to mirror and challenge the entire history of photography. It contains approximately 800 polaroids that document the artist’s daily life and travels around the globe in the course of a year. The collection tries to break the boundaries of the personal and the institutional, by placing all photographs under one roof in an original size and a seemingly arbitrary yet chronological order. The photographs are shifting from familiar, atmospheric to staged, portraits, found footage, experimental and kitsch. Each page in the book contains 4 colorful photographs.

Begin 2012 besliste het college van schepenen en burgemeester van Gent om An Pierlé aan te stellen als stadscomponist voor de periode 2012–2013. An Pierlé (°1974) is een Gentse muzikante die in 1996 haar bekendheid verwierf in Vlaanderen door haar deelname aan Humo’s Rock Rally, in een frappante verschijning op een zitbal aan de piano. Met een jeugdig enthousiasme omarmde An Pierlé de verschillende muzikale en andere samenwerkingsverbanden in het kader van haar stadscomponistenschap… Ze bespeelde de prachtige Gentse kerkorgels en de beiaard, ze opende de stadhal in gezelschap van haar Gentse collega muzikanten met o.a. Helmut Lotti, Sarah Ferri, Stef Heeren,… Ze inspireerde studenten grafisch ontwerp en videokunst en liet de studenten compositie van het Gentse conservatorium aan het werk met haar muziek met als eindresultaat een concert in de Opera in het najaar van 2013.

An architect talks about the city he has built. Gradually we realize that the city is imaginary. His account is a futile attempt to give his ideas a fixed shape. This, in a nutshell, is the story of Thing, a book and video by artist Anouk De Clercq. Thing is part of The art of ~scaping, a research project by Anouk De Clercq, funded by the Research Fund University College Ghent.

BACKLIST

In August 2009, cultural practitioners from around Asia and their ARTHUB ASIA-integrated, match-made peers from the rest of the world came together to discuss and reflect on the dynamic, ongoing echoes of the now-defunct Silk Road trading route and its multiple dimensions. As a four-day symposium, The Making of The New Silk Roads aimed to reassess the complex interconnections within Asia’s cultural and artistic spectrum at the beginning of the 21st century. This book summarizes the concerns and thoughts the symposium participants shared, while reflecting on the performative format of meeting that the symposium aimed to be. By extension, it serves as a memento of what its initiator ARTHUB ASIA-a not-for-profit multi-disciplinary platform of curatorial and artistic experimentation- has achieved in its first seven years of existence.

In the past years Sam Dillemans has painted some 300 portraits, mostly of influential writers, but also of scientists, composers and singers. In his typical dynamic and fluent style Dillemans completed the 300 portraits almost in one go. Most of the portraits are painted in black and white with smooth, volatile lines; others are touched up with some rare subtle brushstrokes in colour. Whether the subject is recognizable or not depends on the viewer and on how much the artists is prepared to divulge in his impressive paintings. Once more Dillemans has chosen to present an impressive series that centres on human beings, their faces and expressions. Some models are recognizable almost immediately, while others require an effort of the viewer. The result is a series of sometimes alarming portraits that compel us to observe intensely, explore the concept of portraiture and admire the smart faces Dillemans has gathered in these paintings in his typical style. 43
