Lyle Ashton Harris : Today I shall judge nothing that occurs : Selections from the Ektachrome Archive  / introduction by Johanna Burton, contributions by Vince Aleti, Adrienne Edwards [et al.] and essays by Ulrich Baer and Robert Reid Pharr. - New York : Aperture, 2017. - 288 p. : ills.; 25 cm
Includes bibliography.
Throughout the late 1980s and early 1990s, a radical cultural scene emerged in cities across the globe, finding expression in the galleries, nightclubs, and bedrooms of New York, London, Los Angeles, and Rome. In Lyle Ashton Harris: Today I Shall Judge Nothing That Occurs, the artist's archive of 35 mm Ektachrome images are presented alongside journal entries and recollections from a host of artistic and cultural figures. It offers a unique document of what Harris has described as "ephemeral moments and emblematic figures shot in the 1980s and '90s, against a backdrop of seismic shifts in the art world, the emergence of multiculturalism, the second wave of AIDS activism, and incipient globalization."

Compassion : A paradox in art and society / ed. by Jeroen Boomgaard, Rini Hurkmans and Judith Westerveld. - Amsterdam : Valiz, 2017. - 156 p. : ills. ; 22 cm
 (Making Public series)
Publication developed in close collaboration with artist Rini Hurkmans, initiator of a conceptual art work called the 'Flag of Compassion'. The book aims to show what space an artwork can occupy in the public domain, as well as a network of philosophical notions, art theory, societal institutions, collective identity formation and individual experience. Through its hybrid character it wants to form a case study for a new form of art analysis. Simultaneously, it deals with the social effectivity of art and questions how art nowadays can be relevant on a social and political level.
Publication realized in collaboration with LAPS and Rietveld Academie.

Cultural Revolution : Aesthetic Practice after Autonomy / by Sven Lütticken. - Berlin : Sternberg Press, 2017. - 184 p. : ills. ; 22 cm
Includes bibliographical references.
Sven Lütticken analyzes the transformation by the capitalist cultural revolution, whose reshaping of art's autonomy has wrought a field of afters and posts. In a present moment teeming with erosions—where even history and the human are called into question—Cultural Revolution: Aesthetic Practice after Autonomy reconsiders these changing values, for relegating such notions safely to the past betrays their possibilities for potential today. Lütticken discusses practices that range from Black Mask to Subversive Aktion, from Krautonomy to Occupy, from the Wet Dream Film Festival in the early 1970s to Jonas Staal's recently established New World Academy. Within these pages Scarlett Johansson meets Paul Chan, Walid Raad, and Hito Steyerl, and Dr. Zira from Planet of the Apes mingles with the likes of Paul Lafargue and Alexandre Kojève.

What Color Is the Sacred? / author Michael Taussig. - Chicago ; London : The University of Chicago Press, 2009. - 294 p. : ills. ; 23 cm
Includes bibliographical references and index
 This book uses color to explore further dimensions of what Taussig calls "the bodily unconscious". Drawing on classic ethnography as well as the work of Benjamin, Burroughs, and Proust, he takes up the notion that color invites the viewer into images and into the world. Yet, as Taussig makes clear, color has a history—a manifestly colonial history rooted in the West's discomfort with color, especially bright color, and its associations with the so-called primitive. Taussig reconsiders colonialism as a tension between chromophobes and chromophiliacs. And he ends with the strange story of coal, which, he argues, displaced colonial color by giving birth to synthetic colors, organic chemistry, and IG Farben, the giant chemical corporation behind the Third Reich.

Whom does a contemporary institute like Witte de With belong to? How are its stories told and untold? And could a staging of its exhibition history  through trace, remains and scars constitute  an act of resistance  against the tide of accumulation. This publication follows WERE IT AS IF  by Bik van der Pol as a case study  and much more. Many-voiced, it enlists the power of fragments as points of provocation to engage with methodologies of the contemporary. Publication follows the same named exhibition by Bik van der Pol at Witte de With, May 27 to Aug 21 2016.

Mechanisms / ed. by Anthony Huberman. - San Francisco ; Amsterdam : CCA Wattis Institute for Contemporary Arts ; ROMA Publications, 2017. - 288 p. : ills. ; 21 cm
Catalogue accompanying the exhibition ‘Mechanisms' organized by CCA Wattis Institute, on view Oct 12 2017 to Feb 28 2018. A second, expanded version opened at Secession, Vienna, summer 2018. It reflects on ways the "machine" determines how we live and what we believe in. A machine is also a mechanism, not just a physical object but also an abstract ideology. The artworks point to the forms and instruments that make up our technological infrastructure, as well as to the values they are designed to enforce. Contesting a world that rewards efficiency, speed and productivity, the participating artists test existing systems with inefficient machines, impossible tools, wasted time and elaborate protocols that misalign outputs and inputs.

Urban Interior : Informal explorations, interventions and occupations / ed. by Rochus Urban Hinkel. Met bijdragen van Suzie Attiwill, Mick Douglas, Jane Rendel [et al.].  Baunach :Spurbuchverlag, 2011. - 176 p. : ills. ; 24,5 cm

Central to these  projects is a shared concern with diverse relations. The collected essays question and expand the definition of urban and interior practices and domains by way of informal explorations interventions and occupations of the public realm. Urban Interior is also the name of a research collective at the School of Architecture and Design  at RMIT University, Melbourne.

Zij verzamelden zoveel verhalen gedurende 10 jaar aanleg dat ze besloten het boek over de icoon van het Ruhrgebied zélf - zij het alleen in het Duits - te schrijven.

Neighbourhood - Where Alvaro meets Aldo : Portugese Official Representation at the 15th International Architecture Exhibition, La Biennale di Venezia 2016 / texts by Adri Duivesteijn, Alberto Ferlenga, Alvaro Siza [ al.]. - Ostfildern : Hatje Cantz Verlag, 2017. - 208 p. : ills. ; 24 cm
Includes biographies
The pavilion at the Venice Biennale exhibited four notable works by Álvaro Siza on Social Housing - Campo di Marte (Venice); Schilderswijk (The Hague); Schlesisches Tor (Berlin); and Bairro da Bouça (Porto) - revealing his participatory experience with the local inhabitants, and his peculiar understanding of the European city and citizenship. Those projects have created true places of neighbourhood, an important subject of the current European political agenda, towards a more tolerant and multicultural society. This book also reveals the major social and urban changes which took place in these neighbourhoods: processes triggered by immigration, ghettoization, gentrification and "touristification" of cities.

Staying with the trouble : making Kin in the Chthulucene / Donna J. Haraway. - Durham ;  London : Duke University Press, 2016. - 296 p. : ills. ; 23 cm
Includes notes and index
Haraway eschews referring to our current epoch as the Anthropocene, preferring to conceptualize it as what she calls the Chthulucene, as it more aptly and fully describes our epoch as one in which the human and nonhuman are inextricably linked in tentacular practices. The Chthulucene, Haraway explains, requires sym-poiesis, or making-with, rather than auto-poiesis, or self-making. Learning to stay with the trouble of living and dying together on a damaged earth will prove more conducive to the kind of thinking that would provide the means to building more livable futures.

Dark Ecology : For a Logic of Future Coexistence / Timothy Morton. - New York : Columbia University Press, 2016. - 208 p. ; 21,5 cm
Includes notes and index
Becoming a geophysical force on a planetary scale," writes Timothy Morton in Dark Ecology, "means that no matter what you think about it, no matter whether you are aware of it or not, there you are, being that" (p. 21). This is the state of affairs of the Anthropocene, where ecological awareness, what Morton calls "ecognosis" calls us to recognize the structures of entwinement between the human species and ecological phenomena and develop modes of thought for  itle ng  ing them.

Anarchy in action / Colin Ward. - Oakland : PM Press, 2018. - 180 p. ; 21,5 cm
(First published by George Allen & Unwin  Ltd., 1973)
Includes index and notes
The argument of this book is that an anarchist society which organizes itself without authority, is always in existence. Yet anarchist ideas are so much at variance with ordinary political assumptions, and the solutions anarchists offer so remote, that many struggle to take anarchism seriously. Ward's wide ranging analysis draws upon examples from education, housing, welfare, urban planning, the environment etc., showing that the roots of anarchist practice are not so alien as they may seem.

Capitalist Realism : Is There No Alternative? / by Mark Fisher. - Winchester, UK : Washington, USA : Zero Books, 2009. - 82 p. ; 22 cm
An analysis of the ways in which capitalism has presented itself as the only realistic political-economic system. It is easier to imagine the end of the world than the end of capitalism. After 1989, capitalism has successfully presented itself as the only realistic political-economic system - a situation that the bank crisis of 2008, far from ending, actually compounded. The book analyses the development and principal features of this capitalist realism as a lived ideological framework.

In ‘Oog in oog met Gaia' stelt de Franse filosoof en wetenschapsantropoloog Bruno Latour dat de natuur niet langer de stabiele achtergrond vormt van ons doen en laten. We zijn toegetreden tot het tijdvak van het antropoceen, het tijdvak waarin de ecologische gevolgen van het menselijk handelen hardhandig op de voorgrond treden.De ecologische mutatie die zich voltrekt, betitelt Latour als het Nieuwe Klimaatregime. De oude natuur wijkt voor een wezen in beweging, waarin menselijke activiteit en natuurlijke wereld talloze onverwachte verbindingen aangaan: Gaia.

This Rare Earth : Stories from below / ed. by Ils Huygens, Karen Verschooren. - Leuven : STUK, 2018. - 111 p. : ills ; 21 cm. - eng./ned.
Includes biographies and agenda
On February 13, 2018 STUK has been taken over by Artefact, an exhibition and festival on the crossroads of contemporary visual arts, current events and societal challenges. ‘This Rare Earth : Stories from Below' directed the gaze to the geological materials that lie beneath the earth's surface. Exhibition and festival gave voice to the stories told by geological materials, conflict minerals and metals, and rare earth elements. The artworks involved focus on the political, economic and ecological implications of their circulation; from mining, processing, and trading, to use, and recycling. And they reconnect the elements of earth with their cosmic origins: ‘as above, so below'.

Riding Modern Art / ed. by Raphaël Zarka. - Paris : Éditions B42, 2017. - 152 p. ; ills. ; 30 cm
This volume brings together a collection of 50 black-and-white photographs of people skateboarding on sculptures in public spaces. Through his study of the process of appropriation and reuse of these works of art in the public realm - challenging skateboarders to test their limits with new manoeuvres and tricks - artist Raphaël Zarka shifts the approach to a work of art in a way that underlines the dynamism of modern urban sculpture. The idea of movement in these often abstract and geometric pieces is made visible by the skateboarders, translated into pure physics and raw energy. With works by Picasso, Oteiza, Volten, and more. With intentionally blank pages for the artists who did not want to have their work featured.

David Hammons : Bliz-aard Ball Sale / author Elena Filipovic. - London : Afterall Books, 2017. - 158 p. : ills. ; 21 cm. - (One Work series)
In this book, Elena Filipovic collects a vast oral history of the ephemeral action, uncovering rare images and documents, and giving us singular insight into an artist who made an art of making himself difficult to find. And through it, she reveals Bliz-aard Ball Sale to be the backbone of a radical artistic oeuvre that transforms such notions as "art," "commodity," "performance," and even "race" into categories that shift and dissolve, much like slowly melting snowballs. The story: One wintry day in 1983, alongside other street sellers in the East Village, David Hammons peddled snowballs of various sizes. He had neatly laid them out in graduated rows and spent the day acting as obliging salesman. He called the evanescent and unannounced street action Bliz-aard Ball Sale.

Memorandum: Bat Project I, II, III, 2001-2004 / artist's book by Huang Yong Ping ; authors Doryun Chong, Yilmaz Dziewior. - Köln : Verlag der Buchhandlung Walther König, 2016. -  multi-armed leporello + supplement 118 p. : ills. ; 31 cm
In conjunction with the Wolfgang Hahn Prize 2016, the Gesellschaft für Moderne Kunst has published an artist book by Huang Yong Ping, which the artist had already started working on in 2004, shortly after producing his sculpture Mémorandum: Bat Project I, II, III, 2001-2003. In the work Mémorandum the artist documents and reflects upon the history of his Bat Projects. The starting point for these works was the collision of a US American EP-3 espionage airplane (also known as a ‘bat') with a Chinese military airplane over the South China Sea in 2001. All three Bat Projects were censored shortly before they were to be exhibited.

The Architecture of Childhood : Children, Modern Architecture and Reconstruction in Postwar  England / author Roy Kozlovsky. - Oxon : Routledge, 2016. - 279 p. : ills. ; 24 cm. - (Ashgate Studies in Architecture Series)
Includes bibliographical references and index.
Between 1935 and 1959, the architecture of childhood was at the centre of architectural discourse in a way that is unique in architectural history. Some of the seminal projects of the period, such as the Secondary Modern School at Hunstanton by Peter and Alison Smithson, Le Corbusier's Unité d'Habitation at Marseilles, or Aldo van Eyck's playgrounds and orphanage, were designed for children. The Architectures of Childhood situates post-war architecture within the welfare state's project of governing the self, which most intensively targeted the citizen in the making, the children.

The Nonhuman Turn / editor Richard Grusin, Center for 21st Century Studies ; authors Ian Bogost, Timothy Morton, Jane Bennett, Erin Manning [ al.]. - Minneapolis ; London : University of Minnesota Press, 2015. - 256 p. ; 22 cm
Includes bibliographical references and index.
Each of these essays is engaged in decentering the human in favor of a concern for the nonhuman, understood by contributors in a variety of ways—in terms of animals, affectivity, bodies, materiality, technologies, and organic and geophysical systems. In this book you find a wide array of current critical, theoretical, and philosophical approaches to the humanities and social sciences under the concept of the nonhuman turn.

Alien Phenomenology : or What It's Like to Be a Thing / author Ian Bogost. - Minneapolis ; London : University of Minnensota Press, 2012. - 168 p. : ills. ; 22 cm
Includes bibliographical references and index.
In this book, Ian Bogost explores how all things—from atoms to green chiles, cotton to computers—interact with, perceive, and experience one another. He develops an object-oriented ontology that puts things at the center of being—a philosophy in which humans are elements but not the sole or even primary elements of philosophical interest. Bogost encourages professional thinkers to become makers as well, engineers who construct things as much as they think and write about them.

Another Europe : 15 Years of Capacity Building with Cultural Initiatives in the EU Neighbourhood / edited by Phillipp Dietachmair and Milica Ilic. - Amsterdam : European Cultural Foundation, 2015. - 528 p. : ills. ; 21 cm
Includes bibliographical references.
Since 1999, ECF capacity building has been involved with hundreds of local cultural initiatives across all EU candidate countries in the Western Balkans as well as Romania, Bulgaria, Croatia, and Slovakia (all still part of the EU Neighbourhood at the time), Turkey, the Arab Mediterranean region, Kaliningrad (Russia), Ukraine, Moldova, Belarus and the Southern Caucasus. The Another Europe book features learning insights gleaned by cultural actors who have participated in one of ECF's capacity building programs in the regions and comments on the challenges and outcomes of participative cultural policy reform. There is also a diverse range of practical, academic and artistic voices from people who have either contributed to or influenced ECF's programs over the years.

To Seminar / editor Henk Slager ; authors Tiong Ang, Sara Sejin Chang (Sara van der Heide), Jeremiah Day [ al.]. - Utrecht : Mertropols M Books, 2017. - 64 p. : ills. ; 24 cm
The project unfolds as a contemporary reading of philosopher Roland Barthes' essay "To the Seminar" (1974). Engaging with the notion of the seminar—as a concept and as an intimate and complex practice—as something pivotal for learning today, To Seminar transforms the noun into a verb in an attempt to activate its "unpredictable rhythm," proposing it as a tool for intervention into the settled practices of education today; in art and beyond. For what was once celebrated as the "educational turn" today turns far too often into either routine initiation into a knowledge economy or cognitive capitalism, or into the placatory emptying of the meanings of "knowledge production," "community," and "method".

Erik Thys : Portraits / editor Anthony Huberman, Scott Ponik, Robert Snowden ; text by Darian Leader. - Vilnius ; Riga : CAC, Contemporary Art Centre : kim? Contemporary Art Centre, 2016. - 273 p. : ills. ; 21,5 x 29 cm
The reputation of Erik Thys (b. 1961) rests on his work as a psychiatrist, not as an artist. Thys lives in Brussels where he composes music, draws, and practices in two psychiatric hospitals. On the occasion of this book, Thys invited a colleague, the British psychoanalyst Darian Leader, to reflect on his infatuation with automobiles. The drawings in this book are a small, almost pitiful, portion of the number Erik Thys provided. They came to us on all types of office paper, prescription pads, and whatever else was at hand.

In this book the editors bring together an international network of contributors containing experts for placemaking, design, pedestrian flows, street performance, the urban sound scape, markets, street management, city wide strategy, newly built areas and transformation.
