Willem de Rooij: Index
Index. Riots, Protest, Mourning and Commemoration (as represented in newspapers, January 2000–July 2002) consists of 18 framed panels with photographs cut from newspapers, depicting protest marches and moments of collective mourning. Produced initially in 2003, Index investigates the representation of protest in global news and the image politics of bodies between subjects, image makers and systems of distribution. On the occasion of the exhibition by Willem de Rooij, revisiting the work after more than a decade, and in light of changed information networks, this book documents the work in its entirety.
Willem de Rooij: 18 April–26 June 2015
Co-produced by Index together with Arnolfini, the Museum für Moderne Kunst Frankfurt and Koenig Books.
