    Since 2008, Belgium artist David Bergé has been making Walk Pieces, during which he guides participants in silence along a precise trajectory and within a precise timeframe through textures and infrastructures that comprise the city. Walking together resonates with the phenomenological minutiae of street life and for the entire duration of the Walk Piece, participants refrain from verbal exchange and picture taking.

    Participating in a Walk Piece and/or your personal experience of reading this book are the only valid materializations of David Bergé’s ephemeral works.

    A Walk in High Resolution deals with corporeality, sleeping, awakening, and walking through the interiors and fissures of urban infrastructures. Almost touching neighboring bodies, reliving experiences in cities by being absorbed in space that is at once personal, reflective, consumptive, and the other, we walk through cities.

    A Walk in High Resolutionjoins together texts by David Bergé, photos by Seoul-based Junyong Cho, and essays by Dieter Roelstraete (author of Richard Long: A Line Made by Walking) and Marcelo Rezende (co-director of the Archiv der Avantgarden in Dresden).

    David Bergé currently lives in Athens and holds an MA from the Dutch Art Institute (DAI) (2017) and an MFA from LUCA Brussels (2005).

    An Equine Anthology stitches together non-linear histories, testimonies, and interpretations of equine culture from the American Southwest and beyond. Far from representing binaries of the romantic and mundane, of personality and commodity, An Equine Anthology presents the reader with a broad topographical view of the horse, an image that reaches well beyond that of American mythology. M12's anthology combines poetics with research methodologies that delve into the unseen, hidden, and overlooked to create a work that is greater than the sum of its parts.”  - Sanjit Sethi

    This publication accompanies the first solo-exhibition about the Hungarian photographer Andor von Barsy's (1899 – 1965) with photographs he took in Rotterdam. The exhibition in the Nederlands Fotomuseum  takes place from January 15 till April 3, 2011.

    Von Barsy is mostly known for his movies, but since 1930 he also worked on photo reports at the harbours of Rotterdam. These photos are now for the first time at show. He aimed his camera on cranes and bridges to catch a dynamic image of the modern steal constructions. Von Barsy experimented with positions, lines and shapes to give his photos an abstract character.

    Von Barsy's movies are shown at the International Film Festival Rotterdam 2011 (IFFR 2011), like De stad die nooit rust (1928) and the experimental movie Hoogstraat(1930).

    The publication Andor van Barsy: photographer in Rotterdam 1927 – 1942 will include around 100 photographs with an introduction by art historian and critic Frits Gierstberg, head of exhibitions at the Nederlands Fotomuseum in Rotterdam.

    A beautiful monograph on the work of Dutch artist Anuli Croon.

    'Along. We recognize everything in Anuli Croon's large, clear paintings. The hands, eyes, buildings and ornaments are lovingly meticulous, but at the same time unsetting in their anonymity. We recognize everything and yet we go astray among the figures and fragments of a metropolis. And then, distorientated, we see the beautiful composition, the intense colour patterns and the texture.' - Landa van Vliet 

    Anuli Croon (Leeuwarden, 1964) lives and works since 1990  in Rotterdam and graduated from the Royal Academy of Art and Design 's-Hertogenbosch in 1989.

    +++

    The Office for Architecture Drost + van Veen in Rotterdam looks at landscape as their primary source of inspiration for their designs. These designs either strongly merge into the context of their landscape or really stand out like a beacon. Next to this conceptual approach, materialization is quite an important aspect of the working method for these two architects, whom both were originally educated as interior designers. Their bridges at business park 'De President' in the South of International Airport Schiphol won the Architecture Prize Haarlemmermeer 2009.

    This book shows us a selection of projects, giving a clear vision of Drost + van Veen's method of working; as an introduction the architects tell us about their approach and inspiration in an interview with Harm Tilman, editor of chief of de Architect. Marieke Berkers and Dorine van Hoogstraten place their work in a broader context of international developments. The magnificent projects shown in this book demonstrate how landscape has an increasing role in architecture.

    Contributors: Harm Tilman, Dorine van Hoogstraten, Marieke Berkers, Justa van Bergen, Mathias Lehner, Simone Drost and Evelien van Veen.

    Nieuw-Vennep Zuid, just another common business park in the Haarlemmermeer area? Certainly not! A business park with a vision: an elaborate urban development plan, an ambitious landscape design and a first-rate architectural execution.

    This book portrays this exceptional business park, its buildings and the whole process of realization in word and image. Substantive articles throw light on the relations between local and national interests and the influence of these interests on the evolved residential and working landscape.The relationship between the smallest link, the consumer, the human being, and the municipality, the province, the national government and large companies like the Schiphol Group are closely scrutinized. The opportunities and the gaps in developing business parks in the Netherlands in general, and that of this business park in particular, are discussed. Concluding that architecture and entrepreneurship in no way have to rule out one another, this book contributes largely to the discussion on business park policy in the Netherlands.

    Local politicians asked Dutch artist Marjolijn Boterenbrood to go to Haarlem Oost,  for a long time a neglected industrial area of the City of Haarlem, on the east of the river 't Spaarne. The message was to to reveal and cartograph the unknown and under valued realities of daily life and work on the spot. Boterenbrood asked other artists and architects as well to participate in this very original city project (website-exhibition-atlas) which in the end provided new knowledge en information about this area which could inspire future planning activities.

    In Before I Was Born, Tja Ling illustrates the story of her family’s journey from China to the Netherlands, between the 1930s and 1970s, in 14 interconnected pencil drawings. Out of respect and admiration for the way her (grand)- parents built a life for themselves with all the challenges they have had to face, migrating without any formal education or knowledge of the local language. 

    These drawings are a chronicle of pride, strength and respect. A narrative of a child discovering why her parents are the way they are, why they did what they did and how, ultimately, their experiences were destined to also shape her, even before she was born.

     The unique binding method ensures that all drawings are connected without the interruption of a page border. When fully opened, the book measures 4.75m in length. Due to the leporello binding, the book can be browsed in 2 directions. There are 2 ‘sides’ to the book, just as there are 2 sides to every story.
