Catalogue Fall 2018
We proudly present our latest catalogue, Fall 2018!
including all our new and upcoming books on architecture, art and design.
As of 1 June, the Stedelijk Museum ’s-Hertogenbosch will bear a new name: Design Museum Den Bosch, a decision by which director Timo de Rijk places the museum firmly in nai010 publishers’ field of activity. We’re therefore delighted to kick off the structural collaboration with this museum that strives to connect design and society with the publication of no less than four books. Congratulations on the new name, Timo!
The connection between art, design and society is the heart of nai010 and explains our fascination for topics that explore or deny the boundaries between disciplines. Fashion artists Viktor&Rolf investigate fashion and art and their wearable art is the theme of a major retrospective in the Kunsthal Rotterdam. Nai010 published the accompanying book by curator Thierry-Maxime Loriot. Another crossover is the publication Spots in Shots by Mélanie van der Hoorn, which examines the representation of architecture in (short) films. Following a previous study on architecture and comic books, this is the second part of a triptych about the representation of architecture (architecture and games will be the subject of the last volume).
Photography and landscape come together in Objective Netherlands, a remake of Reinjan Mulder’s legendary 1974 art project. Forty-two years later, photographer Cleo Wächter again superimposed a grid on a map of the Netherlands with the aim of taking pictures at the intersections. What started out as an art project about objectivity has now become a unique documentation of the changing Dutch landscape.
Art, design and society are thus connected through the meaningful exploration of boundaries and relationships. But books about tried and true architecture and urban design are also represented in this catalogue: fundamental texts about architecture and urbanism by Kees Christiaanse, a study about Co Brandes and the New Hague School, and a beautiful study about the architecture of post-war reconstruction farms make this introduction a festive sampling of the capacity of humans to explore, re-create and decorate their environment.
