Beth Laurin: Provisorium

Provisorium provides an extensive overview of the work of Swedish artist Beth Laurin (born 1935 in Stockholm). Since the 1960s, the artist has developed an impressive body of work which includes sculpture and objects, performance, drawing, sound, text, photography and video, often incorporating found things, personal materials, texts and newspaper clippings that are used with a resonance of associations and potential meanings. Her work has developed in correspondence with political movements, such as early feminism, but with a highly idiosyncratic approach that looks extremely contemporary until today.

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.
