    More than 70 percent of the world’s population will be living in urban areas by 2050. Cities in Africa, Latin America and Asia in particular are growing like never before. Photographer Yvonne Brandwijk and journalist Stephanie Bakker travelled to five of the fastest-growing cities in the world. Not to Mumbai or Shanghai, but to the up-and-coming cultural, creative and economic hubs of tomorrow: Kinshasa, Lima, Yangon, Medellín and Addis Ababa.

    In this book, they share five years of travel, insights into urban development and encounters with trend-setters, pioneers, visionaries and up-and-coming talent transforming the fortunes of their cities. The personal stories of these people open an intimate window onto the world behind the statistics of urbanisation and growth and provide insights into what it takes to develop inclusive cities that offer space for unique individuals and personal growth.

    Stories from the Future Cities project have appeared across a wide range of international media (including newspapers de Volkskrant, die Welt, El Pais, Le Monde, de Morgen). Commissioned by the United Nations, an exhibition was put together for the Habitat3 urban summit in Quito, Ecuador, and the interactive Future Cities documentary won a World Press Photo Award for Digital Storytelling.

    "Plunge into Jasper de Beijers’ mind and let yourself be swept away into the passages of world history as it all flows before your eyes as in a dream. And grab hold of each other if you are in danger of losing your balance."

    - Arnoud van Aalst, Director of Museum Rijswijk

    The world that Jasper de Beijer (Amsterdam, 1973) presents to us through his photographic works are fascinating, familiar and disconcerting all at the same time. His work is about the process of looking, seeing and interpreting. At first you think it’s a photograph of reality, but then you see it’s a photo- graph of a paper model. You are swept into a narrative that is more than a photograph. You need to respond in some way, but how? This is precisely the question the artist is asking us: Do you really know what you are seeing?

    The publication Critical Mass. Jasper de Beijer and the exhibition of the same name were made possible by the support of the Agnes van den Brandeler Museum Prize, jointly awarded to Museum Rijswijk and the artist.

    With text contributions by Arnoud van Aalst, Diana Wind and Merel Bem.

    This Naked Incident

    Alexander van der Heide & Sander Coers

     

    This Naked Incident is a deep dive in search of the place that 'masculinity' holds in the lives of young people today.

    "In the conversations we had with our friends in their spaces of comfort, it became even more apparent to us that gender, following Judith Butler, and therefore masculinity, is performative."

    Alexander van der Heide and Sander Coers spoke with five peers; all assigned male at birth and all with very different experiences of masculinity and equally different gender expressions. Because what is masculinity? Where it sometimes seems that we have no more than stereotypes to resort to in our efforts to make this tangible, it turns out there are specific moments, charged by the people around you, and the places where you are, that suddenly allow for room to modify the way you express yourself.

    The book is designed as an exploration in image and text. Through this journey Alexander van der Heide and Sander Coers come to the conclusion that if masculinity is anything at all, it is fluid. and ultimately they cannot avoid to reveal their own masculinity. 

    "How much room is there, in society, to be masculine in different ways than the masculine construct dictates?"

    The images were shot over a period of three months, in which the makers successively asked their peers to bring an object they associate with masculinity to the shoot, take them along to places where the interviewees feel most at ease, and finally resulting into a portrait that captures the subjects experience of fluidity of their masculinity.

    "Masculinity, the customer argues, mostly defines itself in posture and grandness of body. It is a thing you can measure in people. Some people are more masculine than others. They even, on the spot, compare each other and their respective masculinity levels."

     

    After finishing his bachelor in Art & Design, Alexander van der Heide continued to work as agency curator for VISIONARY Agency in Amsterdam, Whilst starting up his own practice as creative producer and makeup artist, specializing in fashion photography. He has thus far worked with and for a.o. Mirror Mirror Magazine, De Bijenkorf, G-star, de Volkskrant Magazine, and Vogue China.
    Sander Coers is a photographer based in Rotterdam. The influence of nature in his work is strong, evoked by nostalgic memories of sultry summer days form his youth in Zeeland. While working between his studio and on location, he offers a view into a dreamlike world through intimate portraits and sensual details. By coming up close to his subjects, he allows himself to capture their auras in a dreamy and romantic manner.

    Made possible with the generous support of the Mondriaan Fund, Creative Industries Fund NL, Jaap Harten Fonds, Centraal Museum, Reflexfolie and Sign & Safety

    This book is published in conjunction with the exhibition jaune, geel, gelb, yellow. Act on modernism with Antonis Pittas and Theo van Doesburg at Centraal Museum, Utrecht.  

    With text contributions by Maria Barnas, I.K. Bonset, Laurie Cluitmans, Johan F. Hartle, Dirk van den Heuvel, Bram Ieven, Bruno Latour, Thalia Ostendorf, Bart Rutten, Doris Wintgens.

    The publication jaune, geel, gelb, yellow. Monochrome discusses the failure, collapse and historicization of the modernist ideals espoused by Theo van Doesburg, set against the current political backdrop of mass protest. It reflects on the failing of modernity, with contributions by authors from the field of art history, architecture, philosophy, anthropology, sociology and poetry.

    The book is an extension of Pittas’ residency and research at the Van Doesburghuis in 2019, coincided with the yellow vests protest, where Pittas turned the Van Doesburghuis into a performative crime scene. The murder of modernity. Based on this project, the Centraal Museum in Utrecht invited Pittas for a solo exhibition, where he curated works of Theo Van Doesburg and juxtaposed them with his work as a staged scenography of dialogue. The installation looks at the heritage of De Stijl through the current political lenses.

    Antonis Pittas (1973, Athens) is a visual artist who lives and works in Amsterdam.  He is an honorary fellow in the faculty of humanities at the University of Amsterdam, where he conducts research and produces work under the heading Recycling History (Contemporising History/Historicising the Contemporary). His artistic practice focuses on contemporary social and political issues, exploring topics such safety and control, economic crises and acts of resistance, as well as violence and vandalism.
