Price: €35

Amateur is the first comprehensive publication about Wendelien van Oldenborgh‘s moving image works, and their accompanying installations. Developed over the past ten years of her practice, Wendelien van Oldenborgh’s works explore communication and interaction between individuals, often against the backdrop of a unique public location, in order to cast attention on repressed, incomplete, and unresolved histories. Through the staging of these encounters on film, van Oldenborgh enables multiple perspectives and voices to coexist, and brings to light political, social, and cultural relationships and how they are manifested through social interactions.

Matt Mullican’s Pure Projection Landscapes

Published by If I Can’t Dance I Don’t Want to Be Part of Your Revolution, Amsterdam, 2014, 64 pages (colour & b/w ill.), 21 × 27 cm, English

Price: €14

Since the late 1970s, American artist Matt Mullican has developed a practice of performing under hypnosis that extends from his investigations into representation and subjective projection. The evolution of this body of work offers perspectives on repetition and renewal in performance practice. This book is the outcome of an extensive research project into Mullican’s hypnosis performances and a shared exploration of character construction, undertaken as part of the If I Can’t Dance project together with invited researcher Vanessa Desclaux. In her essay, Desclaux addresses the question of personification in light of her analysis of Mullican’s creative process.
