What is the role of aesthetic processes in the drawing of the boundaries between nature and culture, humans and things, the animate and inanimate? Structured around the aesthetic processes and effects of animation and mummification, Animism—a companion publication to the long-term exhibition of the same title, brings together artistic and theoretical perspectives that reflect on the boundary between subjects and objects, and the modern anxiety that accompanies the relation between “persons” and “things.”

Nothing more Natural Anne-Mie Van Kerckhoven

Published by WIELS, FRAC, Kunstmuseum Luzern & Kunsthalle Nürnberg, 2008, 192 pages (colour ill.), 30 × 24 cm, Dutch / English / French / German

Price: €36

Published by WIELS, FRAC, Kunstmuseum Luzern & Kunsthalle Nürnberg on the occasion of Anne-Mie Van Kerckhoven – Nothing more Natural. For the past thirty years, the drawings of Anne-Mie Van Kerckhoven have formed the basis of an ambitious project exploring the relationship between gender, technology and representation. This exhibition revaluated the corpus of works in relation to her career and art, and placed it in the perspective of the surrealist heritage, underground and comic books. The exhibition included a chronological and thematic selection of approximately 300 drawings, a number of experimental works and the restored films which date from the beginning of her career.
