From A to K

Aglaia Konrad From A to K
Sunday 05.06.16 | 11:30 – 13:30

Aglaia Konrad From A to K is based on an original idea by the artist and edited by Emiliano Battista and Stefaan Vervoort. The book is structured and typeset like an encyclopedia, offering a generous selection of unpublished images, both in color and in black-and-white, which are accompanied by an alphabetical list of headwords. This list reflects the artist’s longstanding engagement with the shifting dimensions of public and private environments as they materialize in architecture, urbanism, and the city. In addition, it makes explicit the process and the choices that went into the book’s making—like an index of the manifold ideas leading up to this publication.

The book includes essays and personal testimonies by Friedrich Achleitner, Hildegund Amanshauser, Elke Couchez, Penelope Curtis, Michiel Dehaene, Steven Humblet, Moritz Küng, Spyros Papapetros, Angelika Stepken, Edit Tóth, and the editors, and interventions by the artists Koenraad Dedobbeleer and Willem Oorebeek.

Aglaia Konrad From A to K is published by Koenig Books, Cologne and M — Museum Leuven.
