195 Lying Awake Geert Goiris 170 + insert 24 x 31 M - Museum Leuven 2013

The book contains a selection of 88 works from the last 15 years. They have not been given a chronological or thematic order but have been set in sequence in a manner characteristic of Goiris whereby the images become the components of an estranged storyline. Whilst research plays an important role in his approach towards the subjects and geographical locations he depicts, Goiris removes the photos from their documentary reality and directs the work towards fiction. They are rather sublimated images that don t appear to be from here or from now. The captured images witness an almost disturbing wonderment, such as the image of the permafrost landscape wherein the tracks of vehicles remain visible for centuries. Comprising specifically written texts by Nickel van Duijvenboden, Matthew Vollgraff and Geert Goiris himself (Myths, Places and Protagonists), this book can be seen as a project in its own right and was presented in conjunction with a solo exhibition at the M- Museum Leuven.

194 Tribune (Diary 1971 -1978) Luc Deleu DVD + booklet 20 x 25 Etablissement d'en face, Brussels / LLS 387, Antwerp 2013

106 minutes conversation between Luc Deleu and Jef Lambrecht while flipping through, and commenting on Deleu's early diary 'Tribune', which was made between 1971 and 1978. The diary counts 300 pages, richly covered with clippings, photographs, advertisements, sketches, stamps, notes, drawings, logos, cartoons, advertising leaflets, and maps. Besides reflecting on world history and events taking place in the first half of the seventies, the book refers to Deleu's works created during this period, and to works that he realized only years later. Sublimated in collages, illustrations, sketches and projects, 'Tribune' expresses Deleu's fresh desire for a global mobility and mobile architecture, and marks the start of his "artistic journey".

Staring at the world outside the train,
The dark-clad devil of longing for nothing
Has wormed his way into my brain.

The ghost of gloom cast the first glove;
I finally picked it up I no longer abstain.
Let the genie from the inkwell hover far above.

189 The Molyneux Problem Irene Kopelman 144 16.5 x 23.5 2012

Kopelman described five projects dealing intensively with research, traveling, observing, and drawing. Her descriptions and work notes give insight in Kopelman's relation to science and point at the distinction between what one knows and what one sees. More than showing results she shares a mental process evolving in every project. In Meditation Piece she draws a tiny desert stone for a month on a daily base. Halfway she notes: 'And still, I like spending time in front of the stone, in front of a problem that repeats itself every day. It's a familiar feeling, and therefor gentle to the mind. How will I go about today? The stone is the same; I am most probably not.'
The text has been adapted from her doctoral dissertation, defended in September 2011. Text edited by Moosje Goossen. Design: Roger Willems. ISBN 978 90 77459 88 1

Divided over three exhibition projects taken place in Sao Paulo, Barcelona, and Amsterdam, Beltrán interviewed a large number of people and collected a variety of personal theories on all kind of subjects. He drew his inspiration from microhistory, a genre in cultural history that focuses on personal stories and apparently minor events, sketching a picture of a culture or mentality of a particular period. 'Our view of the world is determined not just by what we have learned about the world or even what we have actually experienced,' Beltrán explains. 'It consists to a large extent of suspicions, makeshift connections and personal interpretations.' With an introduction by Anke Bangma. Design: Erick Beltrán with Gabrielle Pauty and Roger Willems.

173 Picturesque Jan Kempenaers 80 33.5 x 26.5 Academy of Fine Arts Ghent 2012

45 landscapes and architecture photographs by Jan Kempenaers. This book, together with his previous book Spomenik (Roma Publication 141, 2010) present the results of Kempenaers' practice based research on 'contemporary picturesque'. Dirk De Meyer, quoted from this book:
Yet, even when gratifying due to their composition and their living tints and endless varieties , Kempenaers photographs of landscapes altered by man forestall the nostalgia that has, over time, become typical for the picturesque. They force the viewer to remain in the present and think about its conditions and its future, and about the forces threatening our environment. Using Gilpin s topoi of the picturesque - which, by now, are themselves "classical" - Kempenaers' images confront us with the picturesque s slightly disconcerting aspects. As one visitor of the 1975 New Topographics exhibition at the George Eastman House observed, the photographs on display were saying "This is it, kid; take it for its beauty and its ugliness."

167 In Deed: Certificates of Authenticity in Art Susan Hapgood and Cornelia Lauf (Editors) 104 19 x 27 De Vleeshal, Middelburg 2011

Certificates of authenticity are a critical aspect of art works today. They often embody the artwork itself, while referring to it, serving as its deed, legal statement, and fiscal invoice. Certificates by artists validate the authorship and originality of the work and they allow the work of art to be positioned in the marketplace as a branded product. Providing examples of artists certificates from the past fifty years, this book reveals how roles have shifted and developed, as well as how the materials and content of art have changed.

166 Dirk Braeckman Dirk Braeckman 384 29 x 25 M - Museum Leuven 2011

Dirk Braeckman is one of Belgium s leading artistic photographers. In each of his monumental photographic works, he creates an enclosed, isolated world that appears endless in its tactility, while at the same time gives short shrift to the illusions of the medium. These images do not aim to convey anything and yet they are suggestive of complete narratives.
Braeckman in the introduction of the book: (...) we discovered a large number of 'new' images - images that had never been printed. Detached from the context in which I had made them, they could be viewed anew and forge new connections. A number of these discoveries are included in this publication. From a physical perspective, they have yet to achieve definitive form. Ordinarily, the work exists first, and is published at a later date. Here, the reverse is true in some cases. Certain works exist only on the pages of this book, untitled, without dimensions - I may produce them as prints at some point in the future. This publication is, therefore, an autonomous instrument. It presents a state of affairs: extant and unprinted works, in whatever form, without conventional themes, periods or sequences. As such, this publication is a cross between an artist's book and a survey publication. And I feel right at home with this synthesized form.

164 Reissue Marc Nagtzaam 128 23.5 x 32 2011

Monograph with a broad selection of Nagtzaam's work from 1995 to current date. Nagtzaam's meticulous graphite-gray pencil drawings are often abstract, geometric but also seek to be representations of a concrete reality or space. His drawings take up the entire page and appear almost impenetrable. "I m trying to find representations of a concrete reality, as well as those that can only be realized as drawings", he says. This idea is expressed in his use of scraps of text in his drawings and titles which offer little help in interpreting the works. While drawing usually implies that graphic marks generate meaning, the reverse is true with Nagtzaam s work. The drawings are like empy spaces, parallel to the world. I try to create a place that is not clearly defined . With texts in English by Chris Sharp and Dieter Roelstraete. Design: Roger Willems. ISBN 978 90 77459 70 6

142 Jo Baer. Broadsides & Belles Lettres. Selected Writings and Interviews 1965-2010 Jo Baer (Roel Arkesteijn ed.) 184 + 64 29 x 24 2010

Approximately 50 texts - richly illustrated -, published and unpublished, written between 1965 and the present: letters, essays, interviews, articles, facsimiles of illustrated texts, transcripts of talks, and a book-in-progress: Revisioning the Parthenon. The items are of disparate length and tone and cover subjects ranging from optics to orchids, cultural politics to ancient Greek iconography, art theory and philosophy to the mixed pleasures of living in a drafty castle in the Irish countryside. To all these diverse topics Baer brings formidable powers of analysis, rigorous logic, a penchant for provocation, lively wit and an inimitable, exacting use of language - the same ingredients that go into her art. Design: Roger Willems. 184 pp hardcover + 64 pp appendix. Made possible with the support of Fonds BKVB, Galerie Paul Andriesse, and The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts. In English.

141 Spomenik Jan Kempenaers 64 33.5 x 24.5 2010

Series of photographs of abandoned monuments in former Yugoslavia. Willem Jan Neutelings, quoted from this book: "The Antwerp-based photographer Jan Kempenaers undertook a laborious trek through the Balkans in order to photograph a series of these mysterious objects. He captures the Spomeniks in the misty mountain landscape at sundown. Looking at the photographs one must admit to a certain embarrassment. We see the powerful beauty of the monumental sculptures and we catch ourselves forgetting the victims in whose name they were built. This is in no way a reproach to the photographer, but rather attests to the strength of the images. After all, Kempenaers did not set out as a documentary photographer, but first and foremost as an artist seeking to create a new image. An image so powerful that it engulfs the viewer. He allows the viewer to enjoy the melancholy beauty of the Spomeniks, but in so doing, forces us to take a position on a social issue." Design: Roger Willems. ISBN 978 90 77459 50 8

139 On the Self-Reflexive Page Louis Lüthi 160 13 x 20 2010

Priè d'insérer (by Louis Lüthi) - The subject of this book is the page, and the pages reproduced in it are taken from works of literature (or, in some cases, art books that derive specifically from literature). I have chosen to present them thematically, resulting in a typology of self-reflexive pages: Black Pages, Blank Pages, Drawing Pages, Photography Pages, Text Pages, Number Pages, and Punctuation Pages. The repetition this entails is somewhat deceptive (for a start, the reader will observe the slight but not insignificant differences between the visual and verbal presentations); in literature, such devises are often used as a counterpoint to what has preceded or what will follow in the narrative. And the same means may evidently be used to different ends. For these reasons, and because the book attempts only to trace an isolated theme through numerous and often otherwise unrelated works, the reader is in all instances referred to the original publications, which are listed in the bibliography.

Besides 30 of these residential blocks in Brasilia, Van der Weijde also visited a residential complex in Rio de Janeiro, designed by Costa in 1948, which is considered to be forerunner of the Superquadras.

136 Ashes and Broken Brickwork of a Logical Theory Susanne Kriemann 128 13 x 19.5 Künstlerhaus Stuttgart / KIOSK, Ghent 2010

Text fragments and photo sequences reflecting the trajectory that Susanne Kriemann pursued in relation to archaeology, the artefact, the image of the individual at work, and the idea of the desert as a symbol of the modern desire to create an empty slate, a tabula rasa. Material from Agatha Christies photographic archives is related to photographs by Kriemann of the Syrian desert and archaeological sites in Mesopotamia. This associative working method allows the artist to dig towards the past and to disassociate the idea of modernity from ideological connotations, and analyze the writing of recent history as a formal system of organization.

Epilogue: In a seemingly marked-out, hierarchical world which is far more chaotic and uncontrolled than it appears, Michel Francois's essentially sculptural work, which on the contrary is obviously chaotic and subtly framed, is a model of sensual and ideological reconfiguration of the immediate. His delight in forms and games of representation derives from his wonderment at the world's materials, nature, situations or ideas. Despite the sometimes sombre rawness of some references, the artist ultimately sets out to reconcile what are sometimes distant and contradictory fields in the world of art. Highly formal sculpture underpinned by a set of complex theoretical and ideological strata, laying claim to a liberal art, while accepting the slavish share of work. The ideological issues of modernity (the everyday as material, art as a cosa mentale, universality of forms, abstraction, seriality), without ignoring the great issues of classical art (perspective, nature, manual work, metaphor, illusion, trompe-l'oeil). A focus on the world and on the intimate sphere, neutralised by elegant detachment from forms. Representative clarity and simplicity, contrasted with indeterminate perception. In short, acceptance of physical and moral responsibility for the fundamental demands of sculpture, without sacrificing freedom, risk and uncertainty. (Guillaume Desanges)

132 Passages Through (the Unfinished Monument) Tamuna Chabashvili, Adi Hollander, Vesna Madzoski (ed.) 192 20 x 13 Public Space With A Roof 2010

Story about a project for the KIASMA Museum in Helsinki, Finland, that was canceled two weeks before its realization. It was intended to become an installation of three intersecting Moebius strips 'circling' around the gallery, functioning as a platform to exhibit works of other artists. Finally only a model of this structure was created and photographed with a pinhole camera. On the images, the structure is still visible, but their blurry and foggy atmosphere shows a different universe, closer to the world of dreams and imagination.
The book includes 17 series of photographs, each of them offering a slightly different imaginary walk through the structure, accompanied by fragments of texts by several individuals who inspired the artists while working on the project: Vladimir Odoevsky, Frederick Kiesler, Walter Benjamin, Susan Buck-Morss, Juhani Pallasmaa, Italo Calvino, and Steven Holl. The book also contains a theoretical reflection on the artistic process and experience of cancelling a project.

123 One Time One Million (Migratory Birds / Romantic Capitalism) Susanne Kriemann 122 22 x 27.5 Stedelijk Museum Bureau Amsterdam 2009

An original Swedish Hasselblad camera is the point of departure for One Time One Million. Because the camera dates from 1942, this object launched Kriemann straight back into history. Kriemann succeeds in pushing the concrete politics that adhere to this object into the background. That gives her room to say much more than she would have had a chance to say in a specifically political context: she can bring clusters together in new images, make new connections, rearrange things, tinker around, and thus arrive at new insights.

74 Parallel Slideshow Batia Suter DVD

Filmic sequence of around 1000 newspapers images, collected between 1998 and 2006. This work - which is not distributed commercially - is related to the book 'Parallel Encyclopedia' (Roma 100) which was published a year later, in 2007. Suter decided to keep these images out of her book because of their typical color and newspaper atmosphere. Also the notion of news value and the focus on catastrophic circumstances make this series an autonomous chapter in her collection of found imagery.

5 Newspaper with Fives Mark Manders, Roger Willems 20 47 x 31.5 S.M.A.K. Ghent (B) 1999

The concept of this free local paper is based on the fascination with the fact that objects outside your body – a row of five calculators, for example – can make your brain think 'five'. The newspaper is filled entirely with fives and was distributed in the German town of Hann. Münden as a supplement to a regional daily. The paper reveals a surprising image of the small, picturesque town. The greater part of the photographs show fives found in Hann. Münden, but others were staged, such as the graffiti and the traffic signs arranged in groups of five at night. Edition 100,000
