Throwback to the book launch mid-November of ‘The Artistic Attitude’ by Anke Coumans, also available in a Dutch edition ‘De artistieke attitude’.
‘In recent years, the practices of artists in non-artistic environments have set my mind in motion. Where before I could marvel at the visual outcomes of the artistic process and would want to understand how processes of creating meaning could be described, I am now particularly struck by the way in which artists are present, by their way of looking, how they make decisions, when and how they act, how they take responsibility. I have conversations with them and ask questions to better understand their processes, and I explore literature to find people with a similar quest. This process of moving and being moved lies at the heart of the book The Artistic Attitude.’ - Anke Coumans
