    Koen Taselaar. Rollable Ramblings is the first comprehensive publication on the textile work of Koen Taselaar (Rotterdam, 1986).

    The majority of Rollable Ramblings comprises reproductions of his tapestries, and zoom-ins on them. This visual component is complemented with essays shedding light on the works, and on the history of textile art in general, written by art critic Katalin Herzog.

    Special edition made in collaboration with the Textiellab,  the professional workshop of the TextielMuseum.

    The work of Koen Taselaar is a unique universe in which only he determines the rules. He makes skillful drawings, but also clumsy ceramics and elaborate Tapestries.

    Taselaar’s visual language emerged from the grey area in which text is not only meaning but also form. He expresses this in drawn puns, imaginary record sleeves or large psychedelic paintings. In search of ways to process his diverse output, he makes publications and large scale drawings, which function as flat exhibition spaces. Taselaar is continuously working to further develop his wide scope, for example by learning new techniques in several residencies.

    Taselaar was nominated for de Volkskrant Beeldende Kunstprijs and has exhibited a.o. at Museum Boijmans van Beuningen Museum in Rotterdam, MMCA Changdong in Seoul, Kunstmuseum The Hague, Centraal Museum Utrecht and The State Hermitage Museum in St Petersburg.

    | On the process of looking, seeing and interpreting.

    | A narrative beyond photographs into the passages of world history.

    '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 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.

    The cookbook that doesn’t quite fit the genre and refers to much-needed uncertainty on an empty stomach. 

    Yet another cookbook you’ll think! As if the mountain of cookbooks wasn’t high enough already! But dear hungry reader, one cookbook was still missing; the cookbook that doesn’t quite fit the genre and refers to much-needed uncertainty with an empty stomach. A cookbook that harks back to alchemy. Because the imperative mood is so annoying and needs to be exploited. Because the world of the psyche has endless contents that all want to feel they’re being fed.

    In Snow Eggs seven dishes for seven different mental states of being have been collected. All our digesting causes great difficulties for the finest alleys in our softest facial expressions. Art helps to digest the uncertain instead of regurgitating what we already know. The menus in this cookbook belong to an old stomach that has been mapped, a stomach in which it’s all about slownesses in dark silences.

    Peggy Verzett (1958) is a poet, painter and singer. She made her debut at publishing house Van Oorschot in Amsterdam, with Prijken die buik. In 2010, Vissing, was published by Querido. Haar Vliegstro, appeared in 2016. Her fourth collection of poetry will be published in 2022. ‘Poetry can communicate before it is understood’, said T.S. Elliot. This quote has become her artistic mantra; sometimes hermetics as well as supple playfulness are present in her work. The first Jana Beranova Prize was awarded to her in 2019 for her idiosyncratic oeuvre.

    In the works of Paul Bogaers (1961) association and suggestion play an important role.  His general approach can be described as the ‘collage method’; although his work, through the years, has taken many a turn, ‘combination has always remained to be Bogaers’ central theme. At the beginning of his career he made name in photography as one of the forerunners of the present interest of photographers in ‘vernacular photography’ and integration of found imagery in their work.

    Pim Wiersinga (1954) is a novelist, and made his debut in 1992 with Honingvogels (honeybirds) in the Antwerp Zoo, where this novel is set. Late 2021 or early 2022 Zena’s Arena will be published, an epic about the decline of classical antiquity – which was far from ideal.
