Palimpsest Booklaunch at Bozar Brussels

Thursday 02.08 / 18:30 — 21:00 booklaunch Palimpsest by Philippe Braquenier at BOZAR Brussels
The project explores the composition of conceptual and physical landscape of western knowledge and cultural heritage. By using photography and text as means of investigation, the project arises at the intersection of science and culture, natural and artificial, analogue and digital, visible and hidden. During five years, Philippe Braquenier travelled in Europe and photographed how material history is constantly transformed and added. As a consequence, he questions humanity’s methods of preserving historical documents – and knowledge in general.

The event will take place in the newly opened Salon Europa now hosting the Eurotopie exhibition, a project realised for the Belgian pavilion of the 2018 Venice Architecture Biennial in which Philippe Braquenier actively collaborated. The identity of the Belgian Pavilion for Eurotopie in Venice this year was created by our 6m56s graphic design studio. Some of Philippe Braqueniers works are showcased in Venice.
The short presentation of the book will be followed by a book signing until 9pm. The book can be purchased here.

Booklaunch Pieterjan Ginckels at Extra City Antwerp

‘Solar Safari’ by Pieterjan Ginckels will be launched at Extra City Kunsthal on friday March 23rd. Ginckels is part of the group exhibition ‘Eating Each Other’ curated by Michiel Vandevelde. (exhibition 24.03.18—01.07.18)

Participating artists are: Linah Dalifa, Pieterjan Ginckels, Hamza Halloubi, Ermias Kifleyesus, Jaha Koo, Mashid Mohadjerin, Radouan Mriziga, Ogutu Muraya, Amanda Piña, Aneta Rostkowska & Jakub Woynarowski, Myriam Van Imschoot, Arkadi Zaides, Oliver Zahn & Julian Warne.

Western-European cities have become melting pots of different minority cultures. Yet the Western ‘Enlightened’ values still reign. As a possible tool of resistance against an all-consuming liberal ideology, Eating Each Other presents the strategy of ‘reappropriation’, by which dominant patterns of thought and behaviour are mixed with one’s own knowledge, customs and rituals to create something entirely new.

Opening night with performance by Pieterjan Ginckels at 20:00.

APE #096 Booklaunch Black Mountain Conversations

Launch of the new publication with photographs by Annelies de Mey. A short presentation of “Black Mountain Conversations” will be given by photographer Annelies de Mey in the gallery.

The Black Mountain is the archetype of a mountain that seems unmountable and indestructible because of its steep mountainside. The past and future can have no influence on its power and immortality. Annelies de Mey has respect for the absoluteness of the mountain. She believes in the moment of encounter and waits for the moon, the sun and the snow.
The book can be purchased here.

Zurich Booklaunch Veronika Spierenburg, Oya-ishi – Oya Stone

Book launch by Veronika Spierenburg at Kunstgriff Buchhandlung from 2 — 5 pm.
For three months, Veronika Spierenburg moved from Japan’s south to it’s north. Photography has become an obsession in Japan where only a few unspoiled spots can be found. From this, Spierenburg created an artist’s book which shows the richness of textures, artifacts, traditional as well as modern architecture in an idiosyncratic mood. The photographs shed light on how Japanese culture manifests itself in its craftsmanship.
The book can be purchased here.

14.11 — 14.11.17
Booklaunch Manor Grunewald, External Hard Disk

Launch of the first monograph of Manor Grunewald, APE#091, External Hard Disk. At 20:00 Manor will have a talk with Thomas Caron about his work.
Manor Grunewald focuses on the process of transforming images, whereby the printing process itself, as well as the results achieved with various printing techniques, plays a special role within his compositions, in which order and chaos, the creating, breaking, interrupting and dissolving of structures, are all key elements.
The book can be purchased here.
