One Number Is Worth One Word Luis Camnitzer

Published by Sternberg Press, Berlin, 2020, 288 pages (b/w ill.), 10.8 × 17.8 cm, English

Price: €18

With mischievous wit and wisdom, Camnitzer’s writings summons an inherent utopianism in egalitarian, participatory models of art education to identify how meaning is made.

One Number Is Worth One Word spans over half a century of the Conceptual artist’s radical engagement with art education and its institutions, from his student days in Uruguay and move to New York in 1964 to his current work and writings, with many texts published for the first time. This is a singularly authoritative, antiauthoritarian gathering of a life’s work in art, education, and activism.

Amateur Wendelien van Oldenborgh

Published by If I Can’t Dance I Don’t Want to Be Part of Your Revolution, Amsterdam; The Showroom, London & Sternberg Press, Berlin, 2016, 396 pages (colour & b/w ill.), 17.5 × 24.5 cm, English / Dutch

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.

Fly Me To The Moon Bik Van der Pol

Published by Sternberg Press, Berlin, 2006, 186 pages (colour & b/w ill.), 14 × 21 cm, English

Price: €15

Bik Van der Pol’s project revolves around one of the oldest objects in the collection of the Rijksmuseum: a moon rock. The crew of the first manned lunar landing mission, Apollo 11, brought this rock back to earth in 1969. That same year the three astronauts Neil Armstrong, Edwin Aldrin and Michael Collins visited the Netherlands. Willem Drees, a former Dutch prime minister, received the rock on that occasion as a present from the United States ambassador. And later, this piece of stone was donated to the Rijksmuseum.

Liesbeth Bik and Jos van Der Pol have worked collaboratively since 1995. They live and work in Rotterdam.
