In his new publication ‘DE-AD’, architect-artist-writer-forestier Wim Cuyvers bundles both recent and new essays as well as designs of architectural projects that were never executed.
‘DE-AD’ can be seen as the sequel to the successful ‘Text Over Text’ from 2005. With the publication Cuyvers on the one hand makes an overview of the spaces he searched and searches for, and he abstracts and names the elements that characterize those spaces; on the other hand, in this book he makes his world view explicit.
The graphic design by Filiep Tacq treats the essays and drawings in an equal way, together they lead to the culmination of Cuyvers’ thinking about public space, a thinking that also determines Cuyvers’ architectural practice.
‘DE-AD’ will be launched with two different artist talks:
At CIVA, Brussels on May 19, 2022 at 19h.
Author discussion of ‘DE-AD’.
At BOOOOOKS during Antwerp Art Weekend on May 29, 2022 at 15h.
Wim Cuyvers discusses all the publications he has made to date, or to which he has contributed. He will discuss both the substantive and formal aspects.
Attendees enjoy a 10% launch discount on the purchase of the publication.
