Rafaël Rafaël Rozendaal Rozendaal Everything, Everything,Always, Always,Everywhere Everywhere Everything, Always, Everywhere is a book made in close collaboration with the artist Rafaël Rozendaal. Rozendaal’s body of work is much broader than his well-known websites, and spans across different media; from the digital to physical and the textual. All these manifestations have one thing in common: they stem from a fascination with moving images and interactivity in its most basic form. The digital is the starting point for all Rozendaal’s work, even his physical work stems from a digital way of thinking.


Everything, Always, Everywhere reflects on the change that his work has undergone in recent years; looking at both his own evolution as an artist, and the technological progress that has influenced digital art in general. How can the artist play with the evergrowing range of digital possibilities?

Three essays, written by curator and media scholar Christiane Paul; art historian Margriet Schavemaker, and author Kodama Kanazawa, deepen different issues surrounding the work, focusing respectively on net. art and digital art, art historical developments, and Rozendaal’s strong connection to Japan and Asia. Lastly, through a long interview with Rafaël Rozendaal conducted by Marvin Jordan, the voice of the artist is expressed.

Being Public is an anthology of essays investigating, from different perspectives, the notion of ‘public’. ‘Public’ is one of the most issued categories in current debates on culture, yet the notion itself remains largely un-reflected. The meaning of both ‘art publics’ and ‘public space’ have become complex in a time where boundaries between public and private are shifting, and where ‘the public’ actually comprises different groups of changing composition and identity. What does it mean to be public today? And what is the role of art in constituting both ‘public space’ as well as ‘a public’? Taking these questions as a starting point, the book aims to create a better understanding of the relationships between art and the notion of the public.

The everyday connotations of the original, the real, sincere, valid, historical are well-known, and the opposite of the authentic may then be the superficial, false, not-what-it-seems, or just new. Nonetheless ‘the real thing’ presents us with some productive ambiguities that create a point of departure for an analysis and a better understanding of the changes in the postdigital society. Digital technology is embedded in almost every personal relationship, in labour conditions, and in aesthetic practices. What does this mean for the ‘authentic’? To unfold the nuances of the concept of contemporary authenticity this book aims to bring together different thinkers to reflect on the meaning of the authentic now. As a process and as a fluid and performative scheme to be enacted at any time—not just in terms of art and art making but flowing into every single nook of contemporary life, from the intimate to the public.

The series ‘Making Public’ investigates ‘the public’, the civil domain where space, knowledge, values and commodities are shared. What does this notion of ‘public’ mean? How does this domain change under the influence of social, political and technological tendencies? Where are the boundaries of ‘the public’ and how are they determined? What forms of responsibility and solidarity does ‘the public’ invoke? And how do artists and culture critics shape the debate on these issues? The series is designed by Template, Marlon Harder & Lasse van den Bosch Christensen, In this series four titles are planned for spring 2017.

LOST AND LIVING (IN) ARCHIVES Collectively Shaping New Memories

Annet Dekker (ed.) Making Public


(new • arts)

Compassion, A Paradox in Art and Society, is developed in close collaboration with artist Rini Hurkmans, initiator of the conceptual art work the Flag of Compassion. The book aims to show what space an artwork can occupy in the public domain, and in a network of philosophical notions, art theory, societal institutions, collective identity formation and individual experience. Through its hybrid character it wants to form a case study for a new form of art analysis. Simultaneously, it deals with the social effectivity of art and questions how art nowadays can be relevant on a social and political level.

An archive is a collection of documents and records that is preserved for historical purposes. As such, an archive is considered a site of the past, a place that contains traces of a collective memory of a nation, a people or a group. Digital archives have changed from stable entities into flexible systems, referred to with the term ‘Living Archives’. But in which ways has this change affected our relationship to the past, present and future? Will the erased, forgotten and neglected be redeemed, and new memories be allowed? Will the fictional versus factual mode of archiving offer the democracy that the public domain implies, or is it another way for public instruments of power to operate? Lost and Living (in) Archives shows that an archive is not simply a recording, a reflection, or an image of an event, but that it shapes the event itself and thus influences both present and past.

The vis-à-vis series provides a platform to stimulating and relevant subjects in recent and emerging visual arts, architecture and design. The authors relate to history and art history, to other authors, to recent topics and to the reader. Most are academic researchers. What binds them is a visual way of thinking, an undaunted treatment of the subject matter and a skilful, creative style of writing. Series design by Sam de Groot, Formerly published: Sophie Berrebi, The Shape of Evidence, and Janneke Wesseling, Of Sponge, Stone....

ISBN 978-90-808185-0-7

What happens between a spectator and an art work? How do we experience ‘meaning’ in a work of art? How can the process of interpretation be understood and articulated? To address these questions, the author explores the field of reception aesthetics, with its central premise that the contemplation of art is a matter of interaction between the art work and the observer.

Triple Bound Essays on Art, Architecture and the Museum Wouter Davidts Wouter Davidts investigates the connection between architecture, the museum as an institution, the museum programme and art. The museum architecture is deployed in a variety of different ways: as an autonomous icon, as a flexible ‘shed’, as a PR instrument, as a memory machine, as a stimulus to urban renewal, as a landscape theme, as a political trump card, as a storage depot for artefacts, as an artist’s working place, etc. With many case studies: Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen, Centre Pompidou, Tate Modern, etc. ISBN 978-90-78088-49-3

The Lure of the Biographical On the (Self-) Presentation of Artists Sandra Kisters

This volume assembles different perspectives on Brian O’Doherty’s/ Patrick Ireland’s seminal work: his visual art practice, art criticism, institutional leadership and critique, media work and literary writing. The contributing authors provide fresh perspectives on his versatile oeuvre. O’Doherty’s role in and for conceptual art and minimalism in New York is as much a theme as his seminal critique of the Modernist white cube gallery (also expressed in his influential book Inside the White Cube: Ideologies of the Gallery Space, 1976), his art-historical ventures and Irish origins. O’Doherty’s key role in creating funding mechanisms for conceptual and live art in the US (as Director of the National Endowment for the Arts) features, together with his differentiation and complication of many categories, such as landscape, drawing, the senses, and word and image relations.

Brian O’Doherty (born in 1928 in Ballaghaderreen, Ireland) is an art critic, writer, artist, and academic. He has lived in New York City for more than 50 years. He has used a number of alter egos, including Patrick Ireland. In the 1960s, he was an art critic for the New York Times. He commissioned Roland Barthes to write his ‘Death of the Author’ essay for Aspen magazine (1967). He has also been an editor of Art in America and an on-air art critic for NBC. For many years, O’Doherty was a member of the senior staff of the National Endowment for the Arts in the US. He was responsible for the creation of public television series on art. He is the author of numerous works of art criticism.

The Lure of the Biographical focuses on the relationship between the art work and the personal image of artists. The book explores how artists use their (biographic) image in order to make a name for themselves, and how other parties, such as critics, art historians and art dealers, make connections between personal lives and bodies of work. Through detailed case studies of the image and work of Auguste Rodin, Georgia O’Keeffe, and Francis Bacon, the book demonstrates which mechanisms and strategies are at play in creating the artist’s image, and, in addition, proposes a model for research into questions of (self) representation.

Adelita Husni-Bey — White Paper: On Land, Law and the Imaginary Editors: Antonia Alampi (Beirut), Binna Choi (Casco), Jens MaierRothe (Beirut), Pablo Martínez (CA2M)

Marion von Osten, Once We Were Artists A BAK Critical Reader in Artists’ Practice Tom Holert and Maria Hlavajova (eds.) Escaping easy categorization, Marion von Osten is an artist as much as a curator, an organizer-facilitator as much as a theorist, a teacher as much as an editor. This forthcoming BAK reader aims to offer a critical mapping of von Osten’s work. It seeks to chart a practice that, in spite of von Osten’s undisputed influence and importance in contemporary art and knowledge production has, until now, not been surveyed and analyzed in any thorough way. The book anthologizes commissioned essays (as well as three in-depth conversations) on various aspects and fields of von Osten’s holistic practice—one which is in essence collaborative and processoriented—revolving around issues of feminism, economic theory, education and (post)coloniality.

‘’t Gaat om heel eenvoudige dingen’ Jean Leering en de kunst Paul Kempers (auteur)

Een uitgebreide, zeer leesbare biografie over de gedreven idealist, mentor, schrijver, gentleman-activist Jean Leering (1934–2005), museumdirecteur van het Van Abbemuseum (1964–1973), het Tropenmuseum (1973–1975), met rollen in diverse internationale tentoonstellingen (o.a. documenta 4, 1968) en besturen. Vier decennia na zijn vertrek uit het Van Abbe- en Tropenmuseum blijkt een nieuwe generatie curatoren en jonge museumdirecteuren zich ruimhartig te laten inspireren door Leerings ideeën.

Onderzoek ondersteund door Stichting Harten Fonds, Mondriaan Fonds, Fonds voor Bijzondere Journalistieke Projecten vis-à-vis-serie, design: Sam de Groot, ca. 400 blz, paperback, Ned, 23,5 x 16,5 cm (h x b), paperback, veel ills. ISBN 978-94-92095-07-7 ca. € 25,00

Traditional cities of the global north are dominated by linear ‘take-make-waste’ habits: by economic interactions and socio-spatial developments. This is the WASTED City: an urban settlement in which it is difficult to develop circular systems on a mainstream basis. Currently we see the proliferation of urban niches of circularity, progressive policymaking and economic innovation, but the truly CIRCULAR CITY remains Utopian. This book explores how these different approaches are connected and what is needed to make circular urban development the new sustainable standard. Looking at the city as an ecosystem, urban planning, design and architecture practices adapt the built environment in which people interact as organisms within a complex system. We see grand opportunity for planners to reinterpret the landscape and act in a more inclusive, cooperative fashion that propagates sustainable economic activity and vigorous cultural strength. Drawing upon the experiences of many case studies, this book takes us through bottlenecks and empowerment mechanisms to go beyond the WASTED City. Then it zooms out, asking experts how to bring circular urban development to a more accessible level, touring through conceptual frameworks, city-level approaches, ideas, criticisms and systemic change proposals. The Wasted City is a vivid odyssey into the contemporary derangement of circular cities, where ideas flourish but mainstream change remains distant from our urban environments.

De grote uitdagingen van de toekomst liggen in de stad, of de stedelijke regio. We staan voor problemen als opwarming van de aarde, sociale ongelijkheid, wereldwijde migratie en grondstoffenschaarste. Steden en stadmakers spelen een belangrijke rol bij het aanpakken van deze problemen, bij het bedenken van omvattende, integrale benaderingen. In Stedelijke vraagstukken, veerkrachtige oplossingen bieden de onderzoekers van het lectoraat Future Urban Regions nieuwe modellen en ideeën over hoe een gezonde, toekomstbestendige stedelijke ontwikkeling gerealiseerd kan worden. Ondersteund door meer dan vijftig casestudies en voorbeelden uit de hele wereld, biedt dit boek een toolkit aan diegenen die geïnteresseerd zijn in het implementeren van ontwerpend onderzoek in hun praktijk. Deze publicatie plaatst stedelijk ontwerpers in het hart van de grote transitievraagstukken van de toekomst.

Ontwerpend onderzoek is een essentieel instrument voor het verbinden van belanghebbenden, en voor het onderzoeken en verbeelden van nieuwe mogelijkheden.

The future of humanity is urban. We are facing major problems such as climate change, social inequality, large-scale migration, and resource depletion. Cities (and those who ‘make’ the city) play an important role in addressing these problems. Human activity is part of a global transition, a permanent metabolism of raw materials, water, energy, food, biomass etc. The linear approach of isolating problems and then unraveling them into bite-sized issues that you can solve, no longer works. The tools that designers have at their disposal are underdeveloped. In Urban Challenges, Resilient Solutions the ‘Future Urban Regions Lectorate’ offers designers, their commissioners and (local) governments new models and ideas to deal with healthy urban development. Illustrated by more than fifty case studies and global examples, this book offers a toolkit for those interested in implementing research by design and healthy urban regions. This publication places urban designers at the heart of the big transitional questions that our society faces. Research through design is an essential ‘tool’ in connecting stakeholders. The method opens up opportunities for exploring and depicting solutions.
