Ode de Kort
het balanseer - 25.00€ -

In the art practice of Ode de Kort (1992), the elements O and U are central. The forms meet in a dialogue, from script to body and back. Even more than the letters themselves, De Kort focuses on the linguistic, (typo)graphic and performative questions they generate. This process translates into photography, installation, video, performance, text and publications.

Post-Comics. Beyond Comics,Illustration and the Graphic Novel
Sébastien Conard (ed.)

‘Post-comics are much more than just another way of making or telling comics. What post-comics are doing is transferring the art of comics to different fields, different contexts, if not different artistic, cultural, technological and industrial worlds. These new environments may challenge post- comics the same way they themselves have challenged their initial comics setting.’ Jan Baetens 

The Ideal Lecture
Kenneth Goldsmith

‘This lecture premiered at The Louvre auditorium as part of FIAC’s public programs in October, 2017. To give it, I loaded the talk into a teleprompter program on my laptop. The linebreaks in the piece are a result of the way the teleprompter program broke them up in order to facilitate the reading of the work. Although I have never written lineated verse, I love the idea that a computer lineated the verse for me. This lecture, then, reads an awful lot like the way I talk, but it is truly nothing like the way I talk.’ KG
