This book highlights the change-making capacity of culture by exploring the intellectual and practical interventions of ‘courageous citizens’. Courageous citizens are those — thinkers, artists, activists and collectives — whose thoughts, ideas and actions play a pivotal role in the struggle for just societies. It is these change-makers who, through their everyday actions, work towards a collective future and show courage and perseverance amid complex societal reconfigurations. Looking back at the past decade, this book identifies three themes which have been, and continue to be relevant to social change: 1) Identity and Diversity, 2) Culture, Communities and Democracies; and 3) Solidarity and Fragmentation. It shows how courageous citizens have activated the cycle of (re-)thinking, doing and changing, inherent to remodelling the way we view the world. Combining theoretical perspectives with case studies and ‘stories of change’, this book wants to demonstrate the potential of culture to generate positive social change.

‘Visual artist’ is a term with untold interpretations, nuances and meanings. But how, as an artist (or designer, photographer, or other ‘independent creator’), do you become who you are and who you would like to be? What fundamental questions, characteristics, dilemmas, ambitions, restrictions and realities play a part? How, can you guide your artistic practice, the main criterion being to answer the question: ‘where do I stand and what do I stand for?’. Plan and Play, Play and Plan invites the artist to reach considerations, often based on analytical models, that will help to determine his/her position. This book has been written by Janwillem Schrofer, director of the Rijksakademie (Amsterdam) from 1982 to 2010, an esteemed international institute, where artists with a number of years’ professional experience are provided with their own studios for two years. Schrofer knows from practical experience the complexity of the artist’s questions and dilemmas, the many areas in which the artist is involved and how important self-reflection and self-determination are. He has scrutinized his considerations and assembled notes — based on many interviews with a wide variety of artists — assimilating them into an appealing book in which terminology, background and questions requiring reflection form a cohesive whole. This log-cum-reflective book is intended for artists and those who wish to become artists, as well as anyone who works with artists. The book does not provide ‘recipes’ or simple solutions, but delves into the very fibre of the artist’s profession, and invites the reader to explore a sustainable artistic practice.


L‘INTERNATIONALE SERIES

Since the development of the reader What‘s the Use?: Constellations of Art, History and Knowledge (Amsterdam: Valiz, 2016) we collaborate with L‘internationale on several publications. L‘Internationale aims to build a sustainable constellation of European museums, these civic institutes where art is used for public benefi t, for inspiration, refl ection and dialogue. L‘internationale generates a content-driven, sustainable form of collaboration, as well as an intercultural dialogue on society and visual art. It is a place where both differences and commonalities can appear and be debated. L’INTERNATIONALE The confederation of L‘internationale consists of six major European museums: Moderna galerija (MG, Ljubljana, SI); Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía (MNCARS, Madrid, ES); Museu d’art Contemporani de Barcelona (MACBA, Barcelona, ES); Museum van Hedendaagse Kunst Antwerpen (M HKA, Antwerp, BE); Garanti Kültür, SALT (Istanbul and Ankara, TR) and Stedelijk Van Abbemuseum (VAM, Eindhoven, NL),

The projects planned by the members of L‘Internationale can be divided into those that reflect on the formation of civil society in the mid-19th century from today‘s perspective and explore the role of art in democratic emergence; those that revisit the 1980s and focus on the relation between artistic experiment and the beginnings of a trans-European civil society; and finally, those that think through the future possibilities of society based on common cultural references and transnational identities. Publications (also online) form an important part to extend the dialogue. L’Internationale is working together with organizations from the academic and artistic fields such as Liverpool John Moores University (LJMU, Liverpool, UK), Middlesbrough Institute for Modern Art–Teesside University (mima, Middlesbrough, UK), Stiftung Hildesheim Universität (HU, Hildesheim, DE) and University College Ghent School of Arts (KASK & Royal Conservatory, Ghent, BE) and with Valiz as a publishing partner. internationaleonline.org

THE CONSTITUENT MUSEUM CONSTELLATIONS OF KNOWLEDGE, POLITICS AND MEDIATION A Generator of Social Change EDITORS: JOHN BYRNE, ELINOR MORGAN, NOVEMBER PAYNTER, AIDA SÁNCHEZ DE SERDIO, ADELA ŽELEZNIK

What would happen if museums put relationships at the centre of their operation? This question inspires this publication, which offers a diverse, rigorous and experimental analysis of what is commonly known as education, mediation or interpretation within museum institutions. It takes the visitor not as a passive receiver of predefined content, but as a member of a constituent body, who it facilitates, provokes and inspires. Moving beyond the practice of mediation as such, the publication situates these practices within the social-political (neoliberal) context and the physical and organizational structure. Understanding this change in an integral, interdisciplinary manner is

what this publication aspires to. This is explored by placing the museum‘s constituent, that is the relation museum organization – museum professional – active audience/co-curators – local and political agencies and context, at the centre of the museum organization, their positions in society start to shift. Issues that are addressed: ownership and power dynamics, collective pedagogy, pedagogy of encounter, collaboration, assent, dissent and consent, co-labour and co-curation (economies of exchange), precarity and working with interns, archives and how to activate them, broadcasting, digital cultivation, crowdsourcing, etc.

THE LONG 80s Constellations of Art, Politics, and Identities A Collection of Microhistories EDITORS: NICK AIKENS, TERESA GRANDAS, NAV HAQ, BEATRIZ HERRÁEZ, NATAŠA PETREŠIN-BACHELEZ

The Long 80s speculates on the significance of the 1980s for arts and society today. Central to the book is the thesis that the 1980s brought a fundamental reorientation in the relationship between the civil society and the state — or governments and their publics — with the effects of this shift coming to shape our contemporary condition. Art and culture played a central role in responding, to preempting or articulating these changes. While the decade recedes into the past, its influence in terms of establishing the logic of globalization is still very present. This globalization produced greater inequality and mixed economic results, yet it also permitted new regional cultural and activist networks to emerge and intimated the possibility of a new ‘global’ or ‘transnational’ culture. Looking back at texts and artworks produced at the

By telling diverse microhistories, a plurality of positions can be juxtaposed that allow a comparison between very different geopolitical situations in Europe and beyond. Themes that are addressed: 1. No Alternative? (on neoliberalism, counter cultures, alternative forms of organization, 1980s activism and art), 2. Know Your Rights (how civil liberties shifted, on the upcoming planetary consciousness and new ecologies); 3. Processes of Identifi cation (gender, sexuality, race, and new nationalisms); 4. New Order (considering 1989 from a series of new perspectives, not just the East-West binary).

Foodscapes, a combination of food and landscape, refers to the social and spatial organization of networks and food supply systems. In other words, the physical places and practices of food production, food processing, distribution, sales, preparation, and consumption. In future-proof food communities it is not only about the social, economic, and ecological sustainability of the food system, but also about the spatial qualities of the landscape and its use. Food not only has to do with nutrition, but influences a multitude of domains; from health to (eating) culture and from employment to spatial planning. It has a major impact on the city (especially on consumption and, to a lesser extent, on production) and in rural areas (mainly production but also the rest of the food chain). Thinking about food-related problems and challenges is becoming increasingly important. These issues influence our planet, global way of life, but also our everyday existence. Flourishing Foodscapes transcends the field of bottom-up initiatives and private projects. If we really want to do something about food problems, we will have to think more structurally about projects on a larger scale. This publication links extensive research, case studies and spatial designs and takes a step towards a more comprehensive approach to food issues, using examples of projects and studies from all over the world.

EXPLORING COMMONISM A New Aesthetics of the Real EDITORS: NICO DOCKX, PASCAL GIELEN There is a new ideology in the making: it is called ‘commonism’. After half a century of neoliberalism, we are excited to welcome this new ideology. Exploring Commonism turns the spotlight on the reciprocating movements of the commons. How are the commons constituted in society? How do they shape the reality of our living together? Is there another, more just future imaginable through the commons? What strategies and what aesthetics do artistic commoners adopt? In this book we attempt to map these new ideological notions, by means of examples and artistic practices, and also through critical reflection. How do they work and, especially, what are their aesthetics? Commonism claims to stand closer to the ecological and social reality of today than capitalism. But is it also nearer to how social relationships really function?

ERNST VAN ALPHEN Failed Images tries to understand photography in its difference from the reality it shows. It sets as a task to analyse the different ways the photograph transforms that which exists before the camera. Photography is not only determined by technical features, but also by a conventional approach to it. This approach can be recognized in what is now called a ‘snapshot’. But the photographic medium enables also very different practices and as a result very different kinds of photographic images. To see this, one needs to look at the diversity of photographic images and practices outside the dominant approach. In this book the photographic image will be explored by focusing on photographic practices refusing the dominant approach to the medium, namely staged photography, blurred photography, under- and overexposed photography and archival photography.

Over a number of meetings Jeroen Lutters and Mieke Bal engaged in a conversation on the art of teaching. Looking for a dialogue that would also touch on the role of visual art, Lutters brought in paintings by Banksy, Rembrandt, Marlene Dumas, and George Deem as ‘teaching objects’ — one for each conversation. He asked Mieke Bal what these paintings might have to say about teaching. The result is this publication: it is a personal, meandering, and precise account of Mieke Bal‘s way of thinking through visual art and literature, and how she exchanges her ideas about this with students and colleagues. This text makes clear how objects can speak, how they are thought-images; how we can use them, how they teach us to find answers to important questions, just by looking, listening, reading, in the triangle of student, teacher and teaching object. The Trade of the Teacher will hopefully serve as a source of inspiration to students and teachers — especially in the arts and the humanities — who are longing for a counter-voice in a complex educational arena.

AUTHORS: JOHN MACARTHUR, SUSAN HOLDEN, ASHLEY PAINE, WOUTER DAVIDTS This book addresses the contemporary pavilion phenomenon and those often temporary and functionless architectural structures commissioned and exhibited by art institutions around the world (including the annual Serpentine Pavilion in London, Young Architects Program in New York and the MPavilion in Melbourne). Despite its ubiquity, and popular success, the contemporary pavilion has been inconsistently theorized and frequently disparaged. In this thought-provoking book the authors reclaim the pavilion as an architectural topic, against those that would dismiss the phenomenon as symptomatic of a simple or absolute exhaustion of the critical potential of architecture’s intersection with art. The pavilion phenomenon also occasions a timely interrogation of larger questions that concern the changing relations between culture and the economy — changes that are shifting the planes on which architecture and art meet.

Since the turn of this century, we have witnessed a significant expanse in the field of transhistorical exhibition practice. A range of curatorial efforts have emerged in which objects and artefacts from various periods and art historical and cultural contexts are combined in display, in an effort to question and expand traditional museological notions like chronology, context, and category. Such experiments in transcending art historical boundaries can potentially result in both fresh insights into the workings of entrenched historical presumptions, and provide a space to reassess interpretations of individual objects in relation to their contexts and narratives. The transhistorical museum offers us a way to look at the past via the present (or another historical period) and vice versa, and has the potential for new ways of interpreting and learning The book is divided in three parts: 1. What is the Transhistorical? Definitions & Terminologies 2. Art, Time and Periodization 3. Curatorial Strategies of the Transhistorical

Hard Werken: One for All is the first major publication on the experimental Rotterdam-based art and design studio Hard Werken [Working Hard, Travailler dur], also known for the underground magazine of the same name. Hard Werken‘s anarchic design, smattering high with low culture and running contrary to typographic conventions and modernist currents of the time, characterized this group as a brash, elusive, and distinctly Rotterdam phenomenon. However, working in Rotterdam and Los Angeles, the core members Henk Elenga, Kees de Gruiter, Gerard Hadders, Tom van den Haspel, Willem Kars and Rick Vermeulen also had worldwide ambitions. With a myriad of images.

The city and urban society are Trancity’s field of activity, in which spatialphysical aspects are always linked to economic, cultural, and social perspectives. Since 2012, Trancity and Valiz have been closely collaborating as trancity x valiz. We have a shared view on the function of publications. trancity x valiz books and programmes provide critical reflection on the city, on urban development and renewal, and on the public domain, with a specific focus on the connection with social, cultural and economic issues.

De stad en de stedelijke samenleving vormen het werkterrein van Trancity. Daarbij zijn de ruimtelijk fysieke aspecten altijd verbonden met economische, culturele en sociaal-maatschappelijke invalshoeken. Sinds 2012 werken Trancity en Valiz nauw samen onder de naam trancity x valiz. We vinden elkaar in een gemeenschappelijke opvatting over de functie van publicaties. Boeken en programma‘s van trancity xvaliz bieden kritische reflectie op de stad, stedelijke ontwikkeling en vernieuwing, en het publiek domein, met specifieke aandacht voor de samenhang met sociale, culturele en economische kwesties.
