Something Some things Something else
Jeroen Peeters

‘My desire is to make a piece with nothing.’ This quest inspired the performance artist Mette Edvardsen to make a series of solo works, from Black to No Title and We to be to oslo. The trail of booklets, postcards and ephemera published in their margins provided writer Jeroen Peeters with a particular lense to look into Edvardsen’s detailed world. The encounter yielded three collections for Mette Edvardsen, essays that honour the literary tradition of composing with fragments and loose ends in search of something. Trying to do as little as possible so that a sense of something else might occur – what’s the space of reading such writing?

one long continuous line or a thought that dissolves into the distance
Mette Edvardsen

Moments Before the Wind. Notes on Scenography
Jozef Wouters

Moments Before the Wind is a heterogeneous collection of notes on scenography that offers a glimpse into the poetics and artistic practice of Jozef Wouters. These reflections on space, scenography, art making and institutional critique have developed over the years as they were written out loud in various contexts. Now settling on the page among built and unbuilt spaces, they’re an invitation to the reader to think along or against, and think up space for oneself. Edited by Jeroen Peeters; graphic design by Filiep Tacq.

Jozef Wouters is a scenographer and theatre maker based in Brussels, who develops work in collaboration with his Decoratelier. Decoratelier is also a workplace for set designers and artists, and provides room for cross-disciplinary ventures and social experiment.
