 Lessons in Posing Subjects. Robert Heinecken. WIELS. Triangles Books.

Published on the occasion of the exhibition of the same title, this book presents the series Lessons in Posing Subjects which Robert Heinecken created in 1981-1982 and reproduced here in its entirety for the first time.
Playing with the reality effect inherent to instant photographs, Heinecken re-contextualizes in this series images found in mail order catalogues, which he juxtaposes with ironic texts.
At once seductive and full of humour, his ‘lessons’ are no less provocative, bearing witness to the commitment of this controversial artist, who considered his approach a form of ‘guerrilla’ artistic practice.

Carlos Bunga

This publication documents the special commission made for the Sonae/Serralves Project in 2012 for which the artist created a very large structure for the entrance hall of the Serralves Museum emphasizing the space’s verticality and functionality, in dialogue with Álvaro Siza’s architecture. Richly illustrated with Bunga’s projects in other artistic contexts ― Pinacoteca do Estado de São Paulo (São Paulo, Brazil), Hammer Museum (Los Angeles, EUA), 29th São Paulo Biennial, Miami Art Museum (Miami, EUA), Krome Gallery (Berlin, Germany), Center for Curatorial Studies (New York, USA), Manifesta 5 (San Sebastián, Spain), among others ― the book features texts by João Fernandes and Ricardo Nicolau (exhibition curators), Adam Budak (curator at the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Washington D.C.), Marta Jecu (writer and researcher at CICANT Institute, Universidade Lusófona, Lisbon) and an interview conducted by María Inez Rodríguez (former chief curator at Museo Universitario de Arte Contemporáneo in Mexico City) offering comprehensive insights into Carlos Bunga’s work.

During the Exhibition, the Studio Will Be Close. Lorenzo Benedetti & Caroline Dumalin (Eds.). Wiels / Motto Books.

During the Exhibition, the Studio Will Be Close is published on the occasion of the eponymous group exhibition organised by WIELS Contemporary Art Centre, Brussels (14 June – 17 August 2014) in collaboration with Motto Books.

The trilingual exhibition publication is composed of nine chapters in one volume. The introductory chapter features an essay by curator Lorenzo Benedetti, whose point of departure is the fine line and particular interaction between production and presentation at the art centre. What lies in between the physical proximity of the working studios and exhibition spaces turns out to be more than just a symbolic separation. Eight former artists-in-residence at WIELS were invited to design their own book space that consists of each 16 pages, in relation to their contributions to the dialogue of the show.

Contributors: Lorenzo Benedetti, Melissa Gordon, Lina Viste Grønli, Rob Johannesma, Aukje Koks, G. Küng, Cathérine Lommée, Emmanuelle Quertain, Grace Schwindt

New Public School in Jerusalem – Under the Mountain 2011-2013. Omer Krieger. Public School Editions.

New Public Art in Jerusalem documents selected moments and actions that took place during the Under the Mountain Festival from 2011-2013, with Omer Krieger as artistic director.

The book, which was published by the Jerusalem Season of Culture in collaboration with the graphic design studio Public School, was edited by Tea Tupajić, a Croatian theatre director who specializes in critical thinking on performance, institutions and politics. She also edits the Frakcija magazine and participated in Under the Mountain 2013.

The Under the Mountain festival which kicks off again, for the fourth time in July, commissions and hosts artistic works “made of people,” and spans a range of artistic disciplines including: performance art, theatre, dance, video, fine arts, music, sculpture and discourse. Under the Mountain is a popular, expansive and in-depth project which plays out, entirely, in Jerusalem’s public domain—the center of Israel’s political and religious life.

An Artist With Six Legs

An artist with six legs, 253 works, 20 years, 8 curators, 1 exhibition is the catalogue of the exhibition «Working Title: “A Retrospective Curated by XXXXXXXXX”» held at Kunsthal Charlottenborg from 13 December 2013 to the 2nd of February 2014.

Describing their projects and works as tools, to be activated and often even changed, by the viewers, the users, XXXXXXXXX’ versatile artistic practice is distinguished by a continued interest in exploring social, political and cultural conditions. XXXXXXXXX makes up their own rules, humorously and intelligently challenging conventions about things like copyright, power structures, design and economy. Throughout their career a distinguishing trait of their modus operandi has been to collaborate with other artists and experts.
