Participating Companies

The publication 'Participating Companies' shows the entrances plus company-details of forty Belgian companies that were involved in an exhibition titled 'RE art-2' (where the book was also presented). Designed as a scribbling-pad, the book finds itself somewhere in between an artist book and a promotional gift. During 'RE art-2’ the work maintained this middle ground when a selection of photos from the book were shown as prints, mounted in HPL frames, on spots outside of the exhibition scope.

Controversy
(Max Pinckers & Sam Weerdmeester)

Controversy addresses the polemic of photojournalisms’ ethical credibility by engaging in the discussion surrounding Robert Capa’s Falling Soldier and confronting it with a scientific approach based on a recent study by professor J. M. Susperregui. Does a scientific debunking of a photographic icon ultimately change its meaning, or does its relevance surpass its authenticity?

Softcover, 210 x 279 mm, edition of 750, 16 pages, ISBN: 9789082465532, published by Lyre Press, August 2017.
Written contributions by Lars Kwakkenbos, J.M Susperregui and Hans Durrer

foundfootage.be
(with Michiel Burger)

[NL] foundfootage.be is een verzameling materiaal waarvan de betekenis niet door de oorspronkelijke auteur of context bepaald wordt. Het samenstellen van de verzameling is een manier om te begrijpen wat interessant is. Toetsing aan de hand van zelfopgelegde dogma's zorgt ervoor dat de subjectiviteit bij het samenstellen van de verzameling ingeperkt wordt. Het materiaal op de website en de dogma's kunnen veranderen bij een nieuw inzicht.
