New – Art herman de vries to be all ways to be Jean-Hubert Martin (author) Cees de Boer, Colin Huizing (eds.) Birgit Donker (preface)

Biennale di Venezia, 9 May-22 November 2015 Zero: Countdown to Tomorrow, Martin Gropius-Bau, 20 March-July 2015 Zero: Let Us Explore the Stars, Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam,4 July-8 November 2015 21

The relationship between man, culture and nature is increasingly becoming a subject of (artistic) research within the visual arts – a theme on which de vries (Alkmaar, NL, 1931) has been working for decades. For more than 60 years now he has been developing a highly versatile oeuvre in which art, science and philosophy are confronted with the world’s, and especially nature’s reality. The theme of his work is topical in an age in which ecological issues can count on an ever broadening attention from the general public. De vries’ recent work dominates his presentation in Venice, as it does in the book to be all ways to be. The book’s guideline is a dialogue between de vries and Jean-Hubert Martin about the works on show in Venice. Martin confronts de vries with key concepts such as synesthesis, mimesis, craftmanship, sound and music, smell, nature and ecology, et cetera, and interweaves the works and thoughts of de vries, with images, texts and other sources throughout his text. journal: entre essaouira et ait amira (2013, details)

herman de vries Binnen de beeldende kunst is de relatie tussen de mens, cultuur en natuur in toenemende mate onderwerp van (artistiek) onderzoek – een thema waar mesa (1996 – 2007) ook herman de vries (Alkmaar, 1931) al decennia mee bezig is. Hij werkt al meer dan zestig jaar aan een veelzijdig oeuvre waarin kunst, wetenschap en filosofie met de werkelijkheid van de wereld worden geconfronteerd. De thematiek van zijn werk is actueel in een tijd waarin ecologische kwesties op een bredere maatschappelijke aandacht kunnen rekenen. Het recente werk van de vries is leidend in Venetië en in het boek to be all ways to be. De leidraad in het boek wordt gevormd door een tweegesprek tussen de vries en Jean-Hubert Martin, waarin de werken die in Venetië te zien zijn de revue passeren. Martin confronteert de vries met sleutelbegrippen als synesthesie, mimèsis, ambachtelijkheid, typologieën en ordeningen, taoïsme, oneindigheid, poëzie, performance, geluid en muziek, geur, natuur en ecologie, etc. en verweeft werken, de vries’ gedachten, beelden, teksten en andere bronnen in zijn tekst.

Jean-Hubert Martin (1944) joined the Musée National d’Art Moderne in Paris in 1971, and was part of the team that established the Centre Pompidou in 1977. After serving as the director of Kunsthalle Bern in 1982-85, Martin returned in 1987-90 to the Pompidou as director of the Musée National d’Art Moderne, and has since overseen institutions including the Musée National des Arts d’Afrique et d’Océanie in Paris and the Museum Kunstpalast in Düsseldorf. His organization of the exhibition ‘Les Magiciens de la Terre’ in 1989, which included established contemporary artists from the West with their peers from across the world, is widely regarded as a breakthrough in reassessing the concepts of contemporary art.

Colin Huizing (1965) is an art historian and senior curator at the Stedelijk Museum Schiedam, the Netherlands, where he organized the exhibition ‘herman de vries.all’. Huizing frequently writes about visual art, for example in the publication Nul = 0, about the Zero Movement, in which de vries was involved as well. Cees de Boer (1955) studied Dutch, General Literature, and Philosophy. In 1995, he obtained his PhD with a dissertation on Max Ernst’s collage novels. De Boer is the author of numerous articles and publications about herman de vries, and others.

Is art criticism losing ground, because of the Internet and art blogs? Do people consider the authorative art critics (of newspapers, magazines) as their most important source to assess and filter what they want to see, read, etc.? Most recent discussions have revolved around the question ‘what is art criticism?’; this book wants to explore the question: ‘where is art criticism?’. It delves into new ways and new spaces where art critics might interact with publics, works of art, artists and scholars. This book suggests criticism has shifted to different places and different stages: it concerns a ‘displacement’, not only with regard to media (from journalism to blogs, catalogues, etc.), but also a displacement in the geographical and institutional sense.

Moving Together by Rudi Laermans examines contemporary dance from both a theoretical and practical perspective, with interactions between the two. The author analyses three important tendencies in contemporary dance: pure dance, dance theatre, and (self-)reflexive dance. He proposes a (theoretical) conceptual framework and through extensive dialogues with choreographers he investigates how artistic cooperation results in dance. Rudi Laermans is Professor of Social Theory at the KULeuven (B) and writes regularly about dance and visual art.

Over the past decade, the European Union has fallen into a drawn-out crisis, politically as well as economically. In this book, the authors argue that analyses of this crisis miss an important element: culture. Faith in politics is first and foremost a cultural issue. Democracy is a matter of political culture. Culture as a shared frame of reference and as something that lends meaning to people’s lives, is not the superstructure but the very foundation or substructure of any society. Its essays analyze and describe both theoretical models and straightforward, concrete and provocative examples that clarify this central thesis: culture is an essential, binding fabric of investigating and assessing our identity, our human activities and how we can critically reflect on these. What would happen if culture succeeded in giving the European project a completely different meaning or sense?

The Murmuring of the Artistic Multitude Global Art, Politics and Post-Fordism Pascal Gielen Arts in Society, with Fontys School of Fine and Performing Arts, Tilburg

In The Murmuring of the Artistic Multitude art sociologist Pascal Gielen defends the hypothesis that the globalized art scene is an ideal production entity for economic exploitation. How can the art world preserve its own dynamic and freedom? This third edition has been thoroughly updated with Gielen’s latest insights into the political dimensions of art, autonomy and the relationship between art, ethics, and democracy.

Sociologist Pascal Gielen and curator Niels Van Tomme have invited a variety of artists and critical thinkers to reflect on new futures for the notion and practice of justice: how may works of art confront, and potentially redirect social and political imaginaries. It suggests alternatives for a more just future by considering the liberating potential of specific aesthetic frameworks used in a wide variety of artistic contexts.

Alternative Mainstream Making Choices in Pop Music Gert Keunen Alternative Mainstream deals with the music segment that lies between the ‘mainstream’ and the ‘underground’. Gert Keunen attempts to uncover which aesthetics and ideologies lie at the basis of the cultural construct that is the alternative mainstream and embeds his findings in a broader socio-economic context. Gert Keunen is a teacher, publicist and musician. He has a PhD in Sociology and teaches music history and music industry in Tilburg, Hasselt, Brussels and Ghent.

Future Publics (The Rest Can and Should Be Done by the People) A Critical Reader in Contemporary Art Maria Hlavajova, Ranjit Hoskote (eds.)

new formations, like rebel citizenry, cultural users, stateless states, and devolutionary platforms Future Publics includes contributions by artists, theorists, and activists who reflect on the emergence of radically new publics, whose origins in moments of social crisis and political uncertainty inspire them to question existing forms of collective organization, decision-making structures, and protocols for the construction of social value and cultural meaning. These future publics recognize that the institutions of political and cultural life cannot continue as usual, following the collapse of late capital’s certitudes. Utopian yet pragmatic, insurgent yet self-critical, these publics resist being normalized into the official, conscriptive definitions of citizenship and instead contribute actively to the formation of new solidarities, cutting across conventional lines of class, region, ethnicity, and ideological affiliation. In the cultural field, future publics demonstrate a capacity for engagement that exceeds the passive observation of the ‘viewer’ or ‘consumer’. While developing a genealogy for future publics, the contributors to this volume also assemble a vocabulary that points towards artistic practices and emergent groups staged outside the rigid institutions of public culture. The reader explores how the imaginative and intellectual labor of such formations has proposed new speculative forms of belonging and collaboration beyond the ones envisaged within the paradigm of ‘contemporary art’. Ranjit Hoskote (1969) is a poet, cultural theorist, and curator. He lives and works in Bombay. Maria Hlavajova (1971) is artistic director of BAK, basis voor actuele kunst, Utrecht. She has organized and curated numerous exhibitions both at BAK and internationally.

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.

‘By mechanical objectivity we mean the insistent drive to repress the wilful intervention of the artist-author, and to put in its stead a set of procedures that would, as it were, move nature to the page through a strict protocol, if not automatically.’ In their history of objectivity in scientific representations, Lorraine Daston and Peter Galison describe the ultimately flawed attempts of scientists to use new technologies in the second half of the nineteenth century to objectively 1 represent scientific phenomena. Photography was one of the techniques they believed made it possible to move ‘nature to the page’ with little or no human intervention. Reading Objectivity in the context of Zoe Leonard’s photographic work reveals both the artist’s critical engagement with a technical history of the medium, through series of images that explore its boundaries and her interest in its social uses. There, by provocatively pitting against one another the quest for the objective image and the subjectivity of the photographer, Leonard shows how the gaze is always embedded historically.

The Shape of Evidence examines the role and use of visual documents in contemporary art, looking at artworks in which the document is valued not only as a source of information but also as a distinctive visual and critical form. It contends that for artists who use film, photography or written sources, adopting formats derived from specific professional, industrial, scientific of or commercial contexts, the document offers a way to develop a critical reflection around issues of representation, knowledge production, art and its history. It addresses several issues that are key both in art and in general culture today: the role of the museum and the archive, the role of documents and the trust that is placed in them, the circulation of such images and the historical genealogies that can be drawn in relation to images. Its chapters are based on a close reading of a select number of works by Christopher Williams, Jean-Luc Moulène, Zoe Leonard, Sven Augustijnen, Fiona Tan and Wendelien van Oldenborgh. The book discusses objects and ideas drawn from a wide spectrum of areas including literature, history, scientific representation, surrealism, conceptual art and commercial photography. Sophie Berrebi is a writer, art historian and curator, born in Paris and living in Amsterdam. She works at the University of Amsterdam, teaching art history and theory, mainly in the areas of photography and contemporary art.

Ulay (1943) has been a pioneer of Polaroid photography and one of the central figures of performance art since the 1970s. A singular presence among the artists of his generation, his radically innovative work, partly known for his twelve-year partnership with Marina Abramovic, has received critical acclaim worldwide. Ulay’s work is introduced by Maria Rus Bojan, who explores the artist’s themes and development, spanning more than four decades. In a long, thematic interview with Alessandro Cassin, Ulay speaks openly about his life and career. This generous volume Whispers reveals an extremely innovative oeuvre, coherently rooted in a personal life philosophy, guided by strong ethical principles.

De bottom-up beweging van kleinschalige lokale initiatieven verandert de ruimtelijke ordening van stad en land, en beïnvloedt overheid en maatschappelijke instituties. 2015 is het Jaar van de Ruimte: veel mediaaandacht voor nieuwe vormen van stedelijke ontwikkeling. De laatste jaren zien we een sterke groei van lokale initiatieven in de leefomgeving. Van gebruik van leegstaande gebouwen, tot stadslandbouw op braakliggende terreintjes, tot kleinschalige gebiedsontwikkeling. Het ging aanvankelijk vaak om tijdelijke projecten in de pauze van de ruimtelijke ontwikkeling, veroorzaakt door de economische crisis. Maar burgers en professionals ontdekken hoe leuk het is om zelf je eigen leefomgeving vorm te geven – je eigen woning, je eigen buurthuis, je eigen sociale onderneming – om zelf de stad te maken. Nieuwe energie komt vrij, bewoners nemen het publiek domein in bezit, nieuwe vormen van collectieve samenwerking ontstaan. Na een aantal jaren enthousiast pionieren dienen zich vragen aan. Bijvoorbeeld: hoe kunnen projecten die draaien op onvermoeibare vrijwilligers en/of tijdelijke subsidies gecontinueerd worden? Het denken in de tegenstelling bewoners-gebruikers versus overheid en marktpartijen is niet productief, maar hoe kunnen lokale initiatieven dan doordringen in de institutionele praktijk van ruimtelijke ordening en stedelijke ontwikkeling? De volgende fase van de lokale initiatieven dient zich aan; hoe ziet die eruit?

ENGLISH The New City-Making Due to the economic crisis and to a changing attitude towards our social and urban environment, local, bottom-up initiatives have been active in ‘city-making’, defining and strengthening the urban habitat. After some years of devoted pioneering the question occurs how to proceed in a sustainable way, how to have influence on and interact with planning authorities?

Binational Urbanism On the Road to Paradise Bernd Upmeyer ISBN 978-94-92095-05-3

Het nieuwe stadmaken Van gedreven pionieren naar gelijk speelveld Simon Franke, Jeroen Niemans, Frans Soeterbroek (red.)

Never before was the mobility of individuals higher than today. People work and live not only in different places, but often even between different countries. Binational Urbanism examines the way of living of people who start a second life in a second city in a second nation-state, without saying goodbye to their first city. They live in constant transit between two homes, between two countries. Binational urbanists come from all strata of society, including the working class, and the highly educated and cosmopolitan creative classes. Through their continuous change of location binational urbanists seem to be living in a state that is characterized by a constant longing, or a constant homesickness, for the other city. The author interviewed people of Turkish origin living in Germany, who commute regularly between cities in Germany and Turkey and live, whether deliberately and consciously chosen or not, this innovative urban way of life. Only at first sight do they appear as rooted residents in their host country Germany, yet in actual fact they are extremely mobile and utilize the best of both cultures in tandem. Binational urbanism has the potential to become one of the most interesting forms of life in the twenty-first century. Accordingly, this book creates a theory of binational urbanism that is developed from these interviews. Bernd Upmeyer is a German-born and Rotterdam-based architect. He also is the editor and publisher of Monu Magazine on Urbanism and the founder of the architecture office BOARD.

ENGLISH The Invention of the Reading Room After budget cuts forced the public library of the Het Oude Westen area in Rotterdam to close, members of the community took matters into their own hands and founded the Leeszaal Rotterdam. This public, community-controlled library is often used as an example ofa a successful bottom-up initiative. In this publication the Leeszaal is used as case study to learn about creating your own city in a critical, reflexive way.

Na de sluiting van de bibliotheek in de Rotterdamse wijk Het Oude Westen richtten actieve bewoners Leeszaal Rotterdam op. De uitvinding van Leeszaal Rotterdam begon met twee vragen aan de bewoners: hoe ziet jouw ideale Leeszaal er uit, en wat zou je er zelf aan kunnen bijdragen? Kort daarna werd er een pand ingericht en ontstond een mooie publieke ontmoetingsplek rond taal, literatuur, verbeelding en participatie die volledig draait op vrijwilligers.
