'To C.L.S.’, ‘For A.L.M.’, ‘In Memory of J.V.C.’ – Starting from his collection of three-letter dedications, Robin Waart’s new artist book "Dedication(s)" addresses the ways in which we give and take: the fact that, even as these dedications do appear in print and publically reach out, they remain private, intimate allusions to the more or less active and passive positions the roles of sender and receiver suggest.
At the book launch, "Dedication(s)" will be introduced by Robin Waart in a conversation with Nell Donkers. Waart invited critic and writer Jan Verwoert to present his talk: "From debt to dedication, from performance to perfume". All 27 dedications in the book will be presented at De Appel on the windows of the 1st floor’s hallway, leading into the archive.
Tuesday, 13 November 20 hrs (doors open 19:30).
Entrance 5 euro
