Includes notes 
ISBN: 9781907208942 
Richly illustrated companion to the similar named exhibition at Camden Art Centre, September 24, 2020 to February 28, 2021. The Botanical Mind: Art, Mysticism and The Cosmic Tree looks back through history at diverse cultural, spiritual, and mythological traditions to reappraise the importance of plants to life on this planet. The exhibition presented an extraordinary array of artworks by over 70 surrealist, modern, visionary, outsider, indigenous Amazonian, and contemporary artists, spanning more than 500 years. Through the symbolism of diverse cultural artefacts and the works of mystics, artists and thinkers around the world, The Botanical Mind reveals how the vegetal kingdom has metaphysical importance to the development of consciousness and spirituality.  

Q - Meanderings in Worlds of Mourning / initiated and ed. by Sophie Krier; with Rolando Vázquez, Saodat Ismailova. - Eindhoven : Onomatopee, 2023. - 128 p. : ill. ; 23,5 cm. - (Onomatopee 55.4 - Field Essays #5: Q). - (Eng. / Sp.) 
Includes notes, biographies 
ISBN: 978-94-93148-83-3 
In this 5th issue, Field Essays brings together Uzbek artist and filmmaker Saodat Ismailova with decolonial scholar Rolando Vázquez. While Ismailova came of age in the post-Sovjet era of Central Asia, Vázquez carries within him the ancestral geographies of the Latin American continent - or Abya Yala as indigenous peoples call her. The book sets out on a journey to find out what these differing cultures can learn from each other in terms of mourning and healing the triple colonial wound of timelessness, earthlessness and worldlessness (Vázquez: 2018). Can a book be a gesture of offering rather than a space of enunciation? Can it be a space of listening that can reconfigure inherited Western modes of thinking and working and create a space of ‘coming to voice' for silenced histories and life lines? The name given to this book and journey is Q. Meanderings in worlds of mourning. Q stands for the Uzbek word qyrq, number 40, which connects to many parts of Uzbek culture.

The Skin of the Film: Intercultural Cinema, Embodiment, and the Senses / by Laura U. Marks. - Durham, North Carolina ; London : Duke University Press, 2000. - 300 p. : ill. ; 23,5 cm 
Includes bibliographical references, filmography, videography and index 
ISBN: 978-0-8223-2391-4 
Memories that evoke the physical awareness of touch, smell, and bodily presence can be vital links to home for people living in diaspora from their culture of origin. How can filmmakers working between cultures use cinema, a visual medium, to transmit that physical sense of place and culture? Filmmakers seeking to represent their native cultures have had to develop new forms of cinematic expression. Marks offers a theory of ‘haptic visuality'- a visuality that functions like the sense of touch by triggering physical memories of smell, touch, and taste - to explain the newfound ways in which intercultural cinema engages the viewer bodily to convey cultural experience and memory. The Skin of the Film draws on phenomenology, postcolonial and feminist theory, anthropology, and cognitive science. 

Healing the Museum / by Grace Ndiritu ; conversations with Brook Andrew, Gareth Bell-Jones, Philippe Van Cauteren ; written contr. by Ifeanyi Awachie, Ann Hoste, Hammad Nasar. - Berlin ; Lausanne : Motto Books, 2023. - 144 p. : ill. ; 30,5 cm
Includes notes
Healing The Museum is a monograph looking at Grace Ndiritu's diverse practice over the last twenty years. The  publication coincides with her eponymous exhibition at S.M.A.K.-Stedelijk Museum voor Actuele Kunst in Ghent. In the run-up to the construction of a new museum, she worked with all employees and the public around a ‘Spiritual Inventory of A 21st Century Museum' developing thoughts about the interpretation of the museum of the future. Under the title Healing The Museum, SMAK presented an overview of the artist's varied practice in recent years (Apr.1 - Sep. 10 2023). Performance, film, shamanism, social actions, publications, textile work, collection research were part of this layered exhibition project in which the artist advocates revitalizing and making ethical the museum space and, by extension, society as a whole. Ndiritu took visitors on a holistic journey through the museum galleries in which she addressed themes such as protest, ecology, inclusion and sexuality. The trajectory ended at The Temple, an architecture designed by the artist for a critical collection presentation, but also a spiritual space for meeting, transition and healing. 

Wayward Lives, Beautiful Experiments: Intimate Histories of Riotous Black Girls, Troublesome Women and Queer Radicals / by Saidiya Hartman. - London : Profile Books, 2021. - 416 p. : ill. ; 20 cm 
Includes index 
In Wayward Lives, Beautiful Experiments, Saidiya Hartman examines the revolution of black intimate life that unfolded in Philadelphia and New York at the beginning of the twentieth century. Free love, common-law and transient marriages, serial partners, cohabitation outside of wedlock, queer relations, and single motherhood were among the sweeping changes that altered the character of everyday life and challenged traditional Victorian beliefs about courtship, love, and marriage. Hartman narrates the story of this radical social transformation against the grain of the prevailing century-old argument about the crisis of the black family.

Published simultaneously with the solo exhibition 'Visions of Possibilities' by visual artist patricia kaersenhout (1966) at Bonnefanten Museum, Maastricht (June 10?November 5, 2023). Shaped by questions related to place, belonging, and the movement of African diasporas, kaersenhout, born in the Netherlands but a descendant from Surinamese parents, goes beyond unveiling inequity and power structures, expanding our understanding of racial politics within a broader geopolitical framework. The publication allows the reader to oscillate between different geographies, works, and materials providing a rich and luscious sense of presence of kaersenhout's practice. 

The Kaddu Wasswa Archive: A Visual Biography/ by Kaddu Wasswa, Arthur C. Kisitu and Andrea Stultiens ; design Marloes de Laat. - Rotterdam : Post Editions, 2010. - 256 p. : ill. ; 24,5 cm 
ISBN: 978-94-6083-029-7 
With Africa at the world's latest front line in political, cultural and ecological issues, this extraordinary exhibition catalog presents an unforgettable story of a quiet soul in a rural village in Uganda who had a huge impact on his nation. Dutch photographer Andrea Stultiens met Ugandan teacher Kaddu Wasswa in 2008 through his grandson, photographer Arthur C. Kisitu, and discovered the meticulous archive in which Wasswa documented his years of community activism including youth development, international exchange and organic farming techniques. Stultiens and Kisitu added their own photographs, and the result is an absorbing visual biography that stretches from Uganda's colonial days through its first 50 years of independence. A few years later Stultiens and Wasswa made The Ttabo, a publication in which they amended some of the content of this book. 

María Teresa Hincapié: If This Were a Beginning of Infinity = Si aquest fos un principi d'infinit. - ed. by MACBA (Clàudia Faus, Clara Plasencia, Ester Capdevila) ; with contr. by Elvira Dyangani Ose, Maria Mercedes González, Carolina Ponce de León ...[et al.]. - Barcelona : MACBA, 2022. - 236 p. : ill. ; 25 cm. - (Sp.(Catalan) / Eng.)
Includes notes
ISBN: 9788417593247
Publication accompanying the similar titled exhibition dedicated to the practice of María Teresa Hincapié (1954-2008) in Corporación Museo de Arte Moderno de Medellín (MAMM), and MACBA Museu d'Art Contemporani de Barcelona (2022-2023). Hincapié was a Colombian artist specialized in what might be called ‘the poetics of everyday life' in performance. Eschewing any specific categorization, her practice oscillated between life, creation in motion, ecology and a search for mysticism. Art was the raison d'être of her existence, not only providing a framework for her creativity but also influencing her ethics and understanding of politics. At the end of the nineties, she acquired some land in the Sierra Nevada where she created an artists' residence. Hincapié was convinced that living in a community was a way of producing knowledge and an essential vehicle for its transmission.

Bevat bibliografie en index 
ISBN: 90-8506-192-X 
In Het web der schepping behandelt Marty Bax de relatie tussen theosofie en kunst in een brede culturele context. In de tweede helft van de negentiende eeuw veranderde het stroomgebied van de kunst ingrijpend. Een van de nieuwgevormde rivieren was de moderne theosofie, die een belangrijke inspiratiebron werd voor symbolisme, expressionisme en abstractie. In de Nieuwe Kunst, de geometrische richting in de kunstnijverheid, in het bouwkundig expressionisme van de Amsterdamse School en in diverse richtingen in de schilderkunst, van realistisch tot abstract, zijn theosofische ideeën richtinggevend geweest. 

Thought Forms: A Record of Clairvoyant Investigation / by Annie Wood Besant and C. W. Leadbeater. - New York : Sacred Bones, 2020 (1905). - 120 p. ; ill. ; 25 cm 
Includes notes 
ISBN: 9780999609996 
High quality re-print of this seminal occult book compiled by the leaders of the Theosophical Society, Annie Besant and C. W. Leadbeater, originally published in 1905 in London. According to the teachings of Theosophy, thoughts and emotions create distinctive patterns of color and form in the human aura—visible only to those who are gifted with a sufficient degree of clairvoyance and can see beyond our normal perceptions. Besant and Leadbeater dictated their clairvoyant "thought-forms" to a group of friends who then created the magnificent illustrations contained in the book. 'Thought Forms' meant a major influence on artists like Hilma Af Klint and Wassily Kandinsky among many others.

Includes index, botanical glossary, listing of books and literature consulted, medical terms glossary
ISBN: 1-55950-211-8
Herbs that can be used to affect the mental state of the consumer, as well as for their healing properties, have been a part of cultures and sub-cultures all around the world ever since our early ancestors first started experimenting to find out what various plants could be used for.  Andrews takes the view that the best herbs for use by shamans are those plant teachers that grow locally. This book focuses only on those species that can be found growing within the northern countries of the world.

Since time immemorial, plants have served as potent symbols.

A visual journey through our interdependent evolution with nature, Plant Magick celebrates botanicals as creative muse - from ancient Greek sculptures to Renaissance paintings to visionary art inspired by psychoactive plants, cacti, and mushrooms. From root to vibrant blossom, this abundantly illustrated publication with small comments explaining each illustration, explores the fertile, interconnected history between plants and people, the multitude of ways in which we embrace plants in spiritual ceremony, as healing medicine, as creative muse and as gateways into deeper explorations of consciousness. 

The Unexpected Guest: Art, writing and thinking about hospitality / ed. by  Paul Domela and Sally Tallant ; with contr. by John Akomfrah, Kenneth Goldsmith, Rosi Braidotti ...[et al.]. - London : Art / Books, 2012. - 320 p. : ill. ;  24 cm 
Includes notes, biographies  
ISBN: 978-1-908970-03-9 
Published on the occasion of the 7th Liverpool Biennial (2012), The Unexpected Guest welcomes and gives home to an array of artists, writers and thinkers from the globe. It is not a catalogue of the exhibition, but a complex anthology of newly commissioned writing, artists' projects and creative texts that explore the issue. Artists have been invited to reflect upon a particular aspect of hospitality, or to invite a guest to occupy their space. Kenneth Goldsmith and twenty-nine fellow poets like Josef Kaplan and Maria Salgado composed works on two key areas of relevance: technology and geography. And scholars like Rosi Braidotti and Achille Mbembe consider hospitality from multiple perspectives, including colonial history, spatial politics and the ethics of the host-guest relationship.  

All About Love: New Visions / by bell hooks. - New York : HarperCollins, 2018. - 240 p. ; 20,5 cm 
ISBN: 9780060959470 
 In ‘All About Love' the renowned scholar, cultural critic, and feminist bell hooks discusses aspects of love in modern society, combining personal anecdotes as well as psychological and philosophical ideas to develop and strengthen her argument. Hooks focuses on romantic love and believes that in American culture men have been socialized to mistrust the value and power of love while women have been socialized to be loving in most situations - even when their need to receive love goes unmet. Each chapter discusses an aspect of love. First she explains her position and introduces an external work which is primarily about that aspect of love. Then she provides suggestions on how to reverse our cultural training and become more open to giving and receiving love. These aspects are affection, respect, recognition, commitment, trust, care, and open and honest communication - rather than the customary forms stemming from gender stereotypes, domination, control, ego and aggression. 

The Care Manifesto: The Politics of Interdependence / by The Care Collective. - London : Verso, 2020. - 121 p. ; 18 cm 
Includes notes, bibliography 
ISBN: 9781839760969 
The Care Manifesto puts forth a vision for a truly caring world. The authors want to reimagine the role of care in our everyday lives, making it the organizing principle in every dimension and at every scale of life. We are all dependent on each other, and only by nurturing these interdependencies can we cultivate a world in which each and every one of us can not only live but thrive. The Care Collective - Andreas Chatzidakis, Jamie Hakim, Jo Littler, Catherine Rottenberg, and Lynne Segal - was formed in 2017, originally as a London-based reading group aiming to understand and address the multiple and extreme crises of care. Each coming from a different discipline, the authors have been active both collectively and individually in diverse personal, academic and political contexts. 

Let's Become Fungal!: Mycelium Teachings and the Arts / by Yasmine Ostendorf-Rodríguez. - Amsterdam :  Valiz, 2023. - 336 p. : ill. ; 24 cm 
ISBN: 978-94-93246-28-7
There is a growing interest in fungi and mycelium as a material, the ever-branching connecting threads of the fungal world. The entanglements and how this rhizomatic network functions is not just a fascinating ecological system and material, but carries a profound usefulness as a metaphor for our potential new systems, ways of thinking and behaviors. ‘Let's Become Fungal!',based on conversations with, a.o. indigenous wisdom keepers, artists and  mycologists, takes its inspiration from the world of art and mycology and shares innovative practices from Latin America and the Caribbean that are rooted in multispecies collaboration, non-monetary resource exchange, decentralization etc, all in line with the behavior of the mycelium. Ostendorf-Rodríguez?works as curator and researcher on art and ecology for, a.o. the Green Art Lab Alliance at the Jan van Eyck Academy's Food Lab and Future Materials Bank. 

Hospitality: Hosting Relations in Exhibitions / ed. by Beatrice von Bismarck, Benjamin Meyer-Krahmer ; texts by Dieter Roelstraete, Andrea Fraser, Anthony Huberman [ al.]. - Berlin : Sternberg, 2016. - 220 p. : ill. ; 21 cm 
Includes bibliographical references 
ISBN: 978-3-95679-089-8 
This publication analyzes, from the perspective of hospitality, the curatorial within the current sociopolitical context through key topics concerning immigration, conditions along borders, and accommodations for refugees. The contributions in this volume, by international curators, artists, critics, and theoreticians, deal with conditions of decontextualization and displacement, encounters between the local and the foreign, as well as the satisfaction of basic human needs. A curatorial situation operates in the space between an unconditional acceptance of the other and exclusions legitimized through various rules and regulations. 

Exiles, Diasporas and Strangers / ed. by Kobena Mercer ; texts by Ikem Stanley Okoye, Amna Malik, Jean Fisher ...[et al.]. - London ; Cambridge, Mass. : Iniva (Institute of International Visual Arts) ; The MIT Press, 2008. - 224 p. : ill. ; 23,5 cm. - (Annotating Art's Histories)
Includes bibliographical references
ISBN: 978-1-899846-45-0
Migration throws objects, identities and ideas into flux across a global network of travelling cultures. Examining life-changing journeys that transplanted artists and intellectuals from one cultural context to another, Exiles, Diasporas & Strangers offers a thematic overview of the critical and creative role of estrangement and displacement in the story of 20th-century art. Revealing the traumatic conditions that shaped numerous variants of modernism - among indigenous artists in Australia and Canada as much as émigré art historians from Central Europe - these critical studies also highlight multidirectional patterns of cross-appropriation that trouble the settled boundaries of national belonging.  

On Decoloniality: Concepts Analytics Praxis / by Walter D. Mignolo, Catherine E. Walsh. - Durham ; London : Duke University Press, 2018. - 292 p. ; 23 cm. - (On Decoloniality series)
Includes bibliographical references and index
ISBN: 9780822371090 In On Decoloniality Walter D. Mignolo and Catherine E. Walsh explore the hidden forces of the colonial matrix of power, its origination, transformation, and current presence, while asking the crucial questions of decoloniality's how, what, why, with whom, and what for. Interweaving theory-praxis with local histories and perspectives of struggle, they illustrate the conceptual and analytic dynamism of decolonial ways of living and thinking, as well as the creative force of resistance and re-existence. This book speaks to the urgency of these times, encourages delinkings from the colonial matrix of power and its ‘universals' of Western modernity and global capitalism, and engages with arguments and struggles for dignity and life against death, destruction, and civilizational despair. 

Vistas of Modernity : Decolonial aesthesis and the end of the contemporary / by Rolando Vázquez. - Amsterdam : Mondriaan Fund, 2020. - 182 p. : ill. ; 18,5 cm. - (Essay 014)
Includes bibliographical references and index
ISBN: 978-90-76936-53-6 
We are living in a time of polarization. Cultural and educational institutions are confronted with the responsibility to provide tools and spaces for critical reflection, for engagement, and, more fundamentally, for meeting and recognizing each other in our differences. In this decolonial essay Rolando Vázquez introduces his critique which offers an option for thinking and doing beyond the dominant paradigms. It provides a critical analysis of modernity understood broadly as the western project of civilization, while it seeks to overcome the dominion of western epistemology and aesthetics and their embedded eurocentrism and anthropocentrism. Rolando Vázquez is cautious in presenting his analysis. He does not look for quick conclusions, but slowly guides the reader through the context of our history and the contemporary labyrinth of text, language, symbols and images which (often without being properly noticed) give great meaning to our existence. His decolonial aesthesis lifts us above the labyrinth and offers us a new panorama 

Return to the Postcolony: Specters of Colonialism in Contemporary Art / by T. J. Demos. - Berlin : Sternberg Press, 2013. - 176 p. : ills. ; 21 cm
Includes bibliography
ISBN: 978-3-943365-42-9
In the wake of failed states, growing economic and political inequality, and the ongoing US- and NATO-led wars for resources, security, and economic dominance worldwide, contemporary artists are revisiting former European colonies, considering past injustices as they haunt the living yet remain repressed in European consciousness. T. J. Demos places contemporary art within the context of neoliberal globalization and what scholars have referred to as the ‘colonial present'.

ISBN: 978-90-834044-0-0  
Errant Journal #6 takes up the topic of debt in order to challenge the idea that it is something rational, natural or inevitable. The contributions in the issue address the ways in which debt and its language hold power over us and organize obedience; from its role in geopolitics to its associations with shame and guilt through moral and religious connotations. Together they reveal how the personal is always connected to the structural. Crucially, the issue also features contributions that address ways of thinking about debt outside Western/neoliberal hegemony and introduce instances of resistance to the violence and inequality?inherent to debt. With additional chapter by Sultan Doughan to address the intensified struggle (since Oct. 7, 2023) for Palestinian liberation and its relations to debt/guilt and finance.

Productive Archiving?discusses a variety of problems of archival organizations. It mainly focuses on the following three issues that are usually overlooked: first, the question of inclusion in or exclusion from the archive; second, the loss of individuality in the archive, the danger of homogenization; and third, that archiving may become a form of pigeonholing, boxing specific identities into a confined space. Avoiding the archive because of these problems is not an option, because archival organization is a basic symbolic mode on the basis of which we organize our lives, the past, the present and the future. What this book suggests is that it is best to explore constructive and creative solutions for these problems. Especially artistic archives seem to be able to develop these possible solutions, because they offer speculative, unexpected ways to order, select, and narrate specific information, and bring about new connections and archival organizations.

Lost and Living (in) Archives: Collectively Shaping New Memories / editor Annet Dekker ; texts by Babak Afrassiabi, Dusan Barok, Tina Bastajian [ al.]. - Amsterdam : Valiz, 2018. - 286 p. : ills. ; 22 cm. - (Making Public series) 
Includes bibliographical references and index

Lost and Living (in) Archives shows that archives are not simply a recording, a reflection, or an image of an event, but that THEY shape the event itself and thus influence the past, present and future. It reflects on the changing role of archives in the digital age. Digital archives have changed from stable entities into flexible systems, at times referred to with the term ‘Living Archives'. In which ways has this change affected our relationship to the past? Will the erased, forgotten and neglected be redeemed, and new memories be allowed? Will the fictional versus factual mode of archiving offer the democracy that the public domain implies, or is it another way for public instruments of power to operate

Poetics of Relation / author Édouard Glissant ; translated by Betsy Wing. - Ann Arbor : The University of Michigan Press, 1997 ; first published in French in 1990. - 226 p. ; 22 cm

ISBN: 978-0-472-06629-2 
Édouard Glissant  focusses on the idea of a ‘relational poetics' which laid the groundwork for the ‘créolité' movement, fueled by the understanding that Caribbean culture and identity are the positive products of a complex and multiple set of local historical circumstances. In Poetics of Relation, Glissant turns the concrete particulars of Caribbean reality into a complex, energetic vision of a world in transformation. He sees the Antilles as enduring suffering imposed by history, yet as a place whose unique interactions will one day produce an emerging global consensus. In Glissant's view, we come to see that relation in all its senses—telling, listening, connecting, and the parallel consciousness of self and surroundings—is the key to transforming mentalities and reshaping societies.

Vijf jaar lang werkte David Van Reybrouck (ook de schrijver van Congo : een geschiedenis) aan zijn monumentale Revolusi. Hij interviewde bijna tweehonderd mensen, de laatste nog levende getuigen van de onafhankelijkheidsstrijd, in Indonesische rusthuizen, Japanse miljoenensteden en op verafgelegen eilanden. Ook in Nederland bracht zijn onderzoek tal van nieuwe verhalen aan het licht. De veelheid aan perspectieven en herinneringen weeft Van Reybrouck samen tot het aangrijpende verhaal van het traject naar Indonesische onafhankelijkheid.

Van de beginjaren van de VOC tot aan het einde van de kolonie volgt Baay het spoor van de mensenhandel in de Nederlandse koloniën in de Oost. De koloniale slavernij nam er vele vormen aan: er waren huisslaven, kindslaven, seksslaven, ambachtsslaven, maar ook slaven op de plantages en perken. Slaven werden vernederd, gefolterd en vermoord. Honderdduizenden personen zijn in de Oost tot slaaf gemaakt. Francisco van Bengale was een van de velen die de dood verkozen boven een ondraaglijk slavenbestaan in Nederlands Oost-Indië.

De Kom was geboren in 1898 als kind van ouders die de slaventijd nog hadden gekend. Hij kreeg een goede opleiding, maar stuitte in Suriname met zijn huidskleur al gauw op de grenzen van zijn maatschappelijke carrière. Hij ging in 1920 naar Nederland en kwam daar in aanraking met de communistische beweging - de enige politieke beweging die pleitte voor onafhankelijkheid voor de Nederlandse koloniën. Op basis van onderzoek dat hij al in Suriname begonnen was en dat hij voortzette in Nederlandse archieven en bibliotheken, schreef De Kom Wij slaven van Suriname, een geschiedenis van drie eeuwen gruwelijke Nederlandse koloniale geschiedenis, en de decennia ná de afschaffing van de slavernij toen vanaf 1873 Brits-Indische en vanaf 1890 Javaanse contractarbeiders naar Suriname werden gehaald om op de plantages te werken. 

Voyage into Paradise: Suncheon Bay International Eco-Environmental Art Festival 2016 / ed. by Sung-Ho Kim. - Suncheon-si : Suncheon Bay International Eco-Environmental Art Festival, 2016. - 388 p. : ill. ; 26 cm

The theme of the 2016 Suncheon Bay International Eco-environmental Art Festival was Voyage into Paradise, intended to extract the concept of ‘paradise' from the common notion of the garden as a ‘pleasure garden'. As the name ‘pleasure garden' denotes, a garden that brings nature to people living in the space of civilization is without doubt a source of joy. Such a place is also a field of remedies as it offers people comfort and peace. In a sense this space may be the origin of the elemental ecosystem in which humans are in a peaceful state alongside plants and animals. Voyage here refers to cruising and seeing sights. It refers not to any passive meditation when at a standstill but to an active view while moving industriously.
