Recent Writing: So Far So Good

Monday, November 4th, 2013


Out now! With an excellent title—

This retrospective monograph on the work of Walter Swennen is composed of a large number of color reproductions of his paintings, by a section dedicated to the artist’s writings (from the 1960s to 2000s), and by two original essays: one by Quinn Latimer which investigates the poetic function of his painting in the light of the status of language within Walter Benjamin thought, and one by Olivier Mignon and Raphaël Pirenne, which analyses how, between 1980 and 1981, the birth of this painter-ventriloquist came on stage by way of a radical reconversion of the Broodthaersian legacy. Finally, this catalog includes an extended list of works from 1960s to the present.
