Edited by Katerina Gregos and Vincent Meessen. Texts by Katerina Gregos, Raoul Vaneigem, Harry Garuba, Pedro Monaville. Personne et les autres / catalogue of the Belgian Pavilion at the 56th Venice Biennale. / Vincent Meessen Paris, Presses du reel.. Softcover, 184 pages color / b/w illustrations, 16x24. The European colonial heritage revisited: Meessen invited ten international artists to think the colonial modernity and connect it with the history of avant-garde, political and independence movements (catalogue of the Belgian Pavilion at the 56th Venice Biennale). Personne et les autres borrows its title from a lost play by Andrť Frankin, a Belgian art critic affiliated with the Lettrist and Situationist Internationals. The exhibition takes the history of the Belgian Pavilion and the international context of the Biennale (both derived from the colonial exhibitions and world expositions) as its points of departure. The Belgian Pavilion itself was the first foreign Pavilion to be built in the Giardini in Venice, during the reign of King Leopold II. The project aims to provide insight into the diverse forms ? whether artistic, cultural, or intellectual - that were produced by colonial encounters. The centerpiece of the exhibition is an audio-visual work by Vincent Meessen, which explores the role of Congolese intellectuals within the Situationist International. The book features ten other artists from four continents and ? for the first time in the Pavilion ? artists from Africa, all of whose work has probed the question of colonial modernity. Published on the occasion of the eponymous exhibition, Belgian Pavilion at the 56th International Exhibition of visual arts ? La Biennale di Venezia, from May 9th to November 22nd, 2015. Works by Vincent Meessen, Mathieu K. Abonnenc, Sammy Baloji, James Beckett, Elisabetta Benassi, Patrick Bernier & Olive Martin, Tamar Guimar„es & Kasper AkhÝj, Maryam Jafri, Adam Pendleton. The publication comes with three different covers, randomly distributed. EUR 50.00 Verder winkelen In winkelwagen
