Moderne hinter den Spiegeln
Edited by Anselm Franke, Sabine Folie & Isabelle Stengers
Verlag der Buchandlung Walther König, Köln
Animism. Modernity through the Looking Glass takes its cue from the ethnological concept of animism that emerged in the nineteenth century in the context of colonialism in search of a "primal" religion. The term was applied to cultures that view nature and objects as having a soul and a life of their own. This concept borrowed from ethnology also plays a key role in psychoanalysis, where it denotes a mental state in which the inner and outer worlds are not distinct from each other.The catalogue brings together artworks, documents, and artifacts to create an essayistic visual space that points to the need for a decolonialization and revision of this traditional understanding of animism. The show juxtaposes historical materials such as early attempts to animate technologically reproduced images with contemporary works addressing the line between life and non-life.

Art, Property of Politics III: Closed Architecture
Named after the 2004 graduation project of Partij voor de Vrijheid MP Fleur Agema, Closed Architecture comprises a sketch for a new prison model, which Agema has developed during her Master’s degree in Interior Design at the Utrecht School of the Arts. Jonas Staal expanded Agema’s texts and sketches into a fully developed models, visualizing her thoughts in detail, and thereby offering new insight into her ideas and concepts. Several architects and designers have assisted Staal during his research, which has resulted in a number of digital renderings, of which a video was on view in 1:1 at Extra City, and a scale model, also in 1:1.

It initiates a reflective counterpart to Van Houwelingen's recent one-man exhibition Until it stops resembling itself at Stroom Den Haag and the exhibtion 1:1 at Extra City. Each of the three projects, What's Done... Can Be Undone!, A Secret Path Along Which Death Made Its Escape and National Monument to the Guest Worker, is discussed by three authors.

An Exhibition - Another Exhibition
An exhibition - Another exhibition is the first monograph about the work of Belgian artist Valérie Mannaerts. The book catalogues two solo exhibitions that took place in 2010, Blood Flow at Extra City Kunsthal Antwerpen, and Diamond Dancer at de Appel arts centre. In her work, Mannaerts extends the work of collage to spatial objects. She explores the physiognomic qualities of things, questioning the relation between organic and inorganic forms, the presence and autonomy of objects as well as the histories sedimented within them.
With an essay by Anselm Franke, a conversation between the artist and Ann Demeester, and photography by Kristien Daem.
