Mondialité : Or the Archipelagos of Édouard Glissant / edited by Hans Ulrich Obrist and Asad Raza ; conversations between Hans Ulrich Obrist and Édouard Glissant ; texts by Sophia Al-Maria, Bruno Latour, Fred Moten, Molly Nesbit [ al.]. - Brussels : Boghossian Foundation, Villa Empain, 2017. - 358 p. : ills. ; 21 cm
For the book Mondialité: or the archipelagos of Edouard Glissant, artists and thinkers contribute texts, excerpts and images that explore key concepts by Édouard Glissant such as pensée du tremblement, créolisation, and opacité. Mondialité focuses on Edouard Glissant and his inspiring call for a global dialogue that does not erase local cultures. In our current moment, there is much to remind one of the international debates swirling around cosmopolitanism at the beginning of the 20th century. Today, homogenizing forces are leading to extinctions, both through environmental degradation and the disappearance of cultural phenomena, yet at the same time, to refuse the forces of globalization risks returning to dangerous forms of neo-localism and neo-nationalism.

With essays by writers from a wide range of fields. It extends Cinema Olanda's integrated engagement with art, film and architecture in dynamic relation to questions of social imaginary and agency.

Sven 't Jolle : The Age of Entitlement or Affordable Tooth Extraction / editor Zoë Gray ; texts by Zoë Gray, Sven 't Jolle, Koen Kleijn, Blair French. - Ghent ; Brussels : MER Paper Kunsthalle : WIELS, 2017. - 190 p. : ills. ; 24 cm
Includes biography and bibliography
This book reveals how Sven 't Jolle explores themes of migration, labour and capital. ‘t Jolle's work is a humorous and impassioned critique of capitalism. He fuses together historical references and citations from everyday life.His work explores the values of contemporary society, addressing with understated humour its inequalities.
The title for this exhibition is taken from a 2012 speech by the former Australian treasurer Joe Hockey. Decrying the welfare state as unsustainable, Hockey proclaimed: "The Age of Entitlement is over." ‘t Jolle approaches the phrase both critically and generously, using it to explore the question of entitlement more broadly. Who is entitled to what? Who decides upon this entitlement? The pun upon the Age of Enlightenment is far from accidental. By giving the exhibition a second, or alternative title - Affordable Tooth Extraction - ‘t Jolle undercuts any pompousness with an absurd verbal juxtaposition that nevertheless refers to the dismantling of the welfare state and public healthcare.

The Reader brings a diverse range of cultural figures into a shared cultural space, including Hugo Ball, W.E.B. Du Bois, Stokely Carmichael, and Gertrude Stein, as well as artists from different generations, such as Joan Jonas and William Pope.L..
Black Dada is a way to talk about the future while talking about the past. It is our present moment. The Black Dada must use irrational language. The Black Dada must exploit the logic of identity. Black Dada is neither madness, nor wisdom, nor irony, nor naiveté.

Includes bibliography.
Cobra was arguably the last avant-garde movement of the 20th century. Moving chronologically, this book explores the years leading up to Cobra's formation, charts its complex expansion over a decade, and illuminates how the movement helped shape the trajectory of contemporary art today. With essays that probe the ideological hallmarks that shaped the group as a whole: its rejection of rational constraints; a focus on play and youthfulness; and its embrace of immediacy, particularly in the form of "action" paintings. In addition, comprehensive biographies of the artists illuminate crucial aspects of each individual's journey, helping to expand readers' understanding of Europe's socio-political and theoretical climate.

Includes bibliographical references.
Sven Lu ütticken analyzes the transformation by the capitalist cultural revolution, whose reshaping of art's autonomy has wrought a field of afters and posts. In a present moment teeming with erosions—where even history and the human are called into question—Cultural Revolution: Aesthetic Practice after Autonomy reconsiders these changing values, for relegating such notions safely to the past betrays their possibilities for potential today.Lütticken discusses practices that range from Black Mask to Subversive Aktion, from Krautonomy to Occupy, from the Wet Dream Film Festival in the early 1970s to Jonas Staal's recently established New World Academy. Within these pages Scarlett Johansson meets Paul Chan, Walid Raad, and Hito Steyerl, and Dr. Zira from Planet of the Apes mingles with the likes of Paul Lafargue and Alexandre Kojève.

Merleau-Ponty for Architects / author Jonathan Hale. - London ; New York : Routledge, 2017. - 144 p. : ills. ; 22 cm
Includes bibliographical references and index.
Merleau-Ponty suggested that the value of people's experience of the world gained through their immediate bodily engagement with it remains greater than the value of understanding gleaned through abstract mathematical, scientific or technological systems. This book summarizes what Merleau-Ponty's philosophy has to offer specifically for architects. It locates architectural thinking in the context of his work, placing it in relation to themes such as space, movement, materiality and creativity.
The philosophy of Maurice Merleau-Ponty (1908-1961) has influenced the design work of architects as diverse as Steven Holl and Peter Zumthor, as well as informing renowned schools of architectural theory, notably those around Dalibor Vesely at Cambridge, Kenneth Frampton, David Leatherbarrow and Alberto Pérez-Gómez in North America and Juhani Pallasmaa in Finland.
