testing ground for art & ecology

Book presentation Radiant Matter

Het Glazen Huis
during Amsterdam Art Weekend
Saturday November 25, 3 – 5 PM

Book launch of Onomatopee 146: Marjolijn Dijkman – Radiant Matter
Marjolijn Dijkman engages in conversation with Kris Dittel (editor Onomatopee), Patricia Pisters (prof. Media and Film Studies, UvA) and Maarten Vanden Eynde.

The publication Radiant Matter by Marjolijn Dijkman envelops a series of recent works that are tied together in their quest to analyze and reflect on the nature of scientific inquiry and the role of speculation, fiction and spiritualism. Their central topic evolves around the timeless fascination of humankind for the exploration of cosmic space, the position of our planet, and our human subjectivity in relation to celestial bodies. 

In addition to an image essay, a conversation between the artist and editor Kris Dittel, the widely illustrated book includes texts by Ken Hollings, Maarten Vanden Eynde and Raqs Media Collective which further contextualise and inform her work and subject matters. Designed by Salome Schmuki and published by Onomatopee.
