One way or another is the title of the very first Posture Pockets and the guide to the exhibition of the same name that took place in the S.M.A.K. in Ghent (30.10-28.11.2021). The independent publisher – Posture Editions – was founded in 2011 and has since published 47 artist’s books in A4 format.
In this first issue of this parallel series in novel format, all the Posture artists’ books from the past ten years are presented chronologically and juxtaposed with that artist’s work exhibited at the S.M.A.K.
In addition to the cover and an inside page, the paperback also contains a text fragment from the published essay, poem or interview.
The text fragments testify to the wealth of thoughts put forward by the authors. They are texts that not only deal with the artists’ oeuvres, but can often be read as autonomous works of art.
One way or another ends with a biography in images: photographs taken during work sessions with artists, book presentations, exhibitions and book fairs, as an ode to the beautiful collaborations with artists, gallerists, curators, writers and readers.
Both the book and the exhibition in the S.M.A.K. follow the logic of a timeline, so that the book can be read in the order of the exhibition and the exhibition is built up according to the logic of the book.
With texts by: Koen Brams, Simon Delobel, Nikolaas Demoen, Martin Germann, Leen Huet, Ann Meskens, Els Roelandt, Koen Sels, Hans Theys, Tom Van Imschoot, Liesbet Waegemans …
and a letter to Posture Editions by Philippe Van Cauteren.
Realised with the support of Cultuur Gent.
