België in oude prenten = La Belgique en estampes anciennes : 1525-1875
Joris Van Grieken, Robert Nouwen, Michiel Verweij (red.)
Tielt : Lannoo, c2017
Door de uitvinding van de boekdrukkunst was de prent (een gedrukte tekening) gedurende vier eeuwen lang wat de foto is vandaag: een getrouwe weergave van de werkelijkheid. Deze unieke selectie prenten, die voor het eerst wordt verzameld, geeft een prachtig beeld van de evolutie van onze steden en landschappen. Ook veel verdwenen monumenten zoals oude stadswallen, kerken, paleizen en abdijen zijn er op te zien. De prenten zijn van de hand van beroemde en minder beroemde tekenaars zoals Van Dijck, Breughel, Hoolans, Van der Borcht e.a. Alle prenten worden achteraan in het boek voorzien van korte commentaren die de inhoud in detail toelichten. Een geschiedenis in woord en beeld.

Never mind, some time
Richard Deacon ; authors, Bart De Baere ... and six others
[Gent, Belgium] : Snoeck Publishers, [2017]
Since the 1980s Richard Deacon has played a prominent role in contemporary visual arts. He refers to himself as a fabricator, someone who wants to test the resilience of materials, language and the meaning of objects to the very limit. His fascination with the possibilities of the most diverse materials such as wood, textiles, steel, paper, leather, marble, clay, vinyl, corrugated iron, cardboard or PVC drives him from one work to the next, with an awe-inspiring oeuvre as a result. The glue, metal joints, bolts or joints are intentionally visible so that the spectator is constantly reminded of that creation process.00The exhibition primarily focuses on?variations?? which could be seen as Deacon?s trademark. By once again applying a logical and consistent series of rules to the same basic or starting situation, the artist keeps on shifting a border and adding possible new interpretations, until he arrives at?new? works of art which will then form part of a series. The title of the exhibition, 'Some Time', refers to its temporary character. Or to a short time frame: things are what they are only for a short time.00Exhibition: Middelheimmuseum, Antwerpen, Belgium (27.05.-24.09.2017).
