1. In November, ikono introduces the work of Jakob Roepke. While the Echo format is usually based on a single artwork from the past resonating throughout history in later re-interpretations, direct or in-direct references, in "Interiority - Jakob Roepke after Various Artists", we will offer the viewer the possibility to “connect the dots” between very diverse figurative, thematic or historical influences in the painted collages of this contemporary artist.
    In an exciting sequence of juxtapositions, reminiscences and comparisons between artworks from different epochs, medium and style, Jakob Roepke’s works will be alternated with images from major artists of the past as well as neglected or even “trivial” source materials.

  2. Razrezano, vrinjeno, izrezano
    Umetnost Williama S. Burroughsa
    19. 2.–7. 4. 2013

    Razstava Razrezano, vrinjeno, izrezano; Umetnost Williama S. Burroughsa je predstavitev vznemirljivega in eksperimentalnega opusa ameriškega pisatelja in umetnika Williama Sewarda Burroughsa (1914–1997). Obsega tematski izbor njegovih del, ustvarjenih v različnih medijih: od zvočnih cut-upov, vizualnih kolažev in abstraktnih slik, narejenih s puško šibrovko, do redkih knjig, filmov, fotografij in efemernega gradiva. Številna dela so bila do zdaj le redkokdaj razstavljena. Umetniško delo Williama S. Burroughsa je težko definirati, saj umetnik ponuja številne načine branja in razumevanja svojega obsežnega ustvarjalnega opusa. Na razstavi je poseben poudarek na tehnikah kolaža in cut-upa, ki tvorita pomemben in vpliven del tako Burroughsovega umetniškega jezika kot njegove umetniške zapuščine.
    Na razstavi je mogoče videti Burroughsove cut-upe v številnih in različnih medijih, razstava izpostavlja za njegov opus značilno spajanje umetniških področij. S to metodo je vplival na široko področje pop kulture, umetnosti, glasbe in tehnike digitalnega vzorčenja (semplanja). Metoda cut-up je bila nadaljevanje idej Tristana Tzaraja, ki jih je opisal v Kako napravite dadaistično pesem (Pour faire un poème dadaïste, 1920). Burroughsa je s to metodo seznanil Brion Gysin, ki jo je v Parizu oktobra 1959 po naključju odkril oziroma znova iznašel, ko je izrezoval paspartuje za akvarele z olfa nožem.
    Burroughs je s svojimi inovacijami vplival na delo več generacij umetnikov, s svojimi stališči pa nasploh zaznamoval razmišljanje več generacij. Burroughsovi zgodnji eksperimenti v kolažu z vsemi možnostmi, ki so jih odpirali, so imeli širok vpliv na uporabo lepljenja magnetofonskega traku in obliko besedil pri številnih glasbenikih, kot so na primer The Beatles, Frank Zappa, Lou Reed, David Bowie, Brian Eno, Patti Smith, Laurie Anderson in Sonic Youth. Kot svobodomislec pa je Burroughs razširil svoj vpliv predvsem v obdobju druženja z ameriškimi beatniki, med katerimi sta bila Jack Kerouac in Allen Ginsberg. Njegovo idejo elektronske revolucije so posvojili tako hipiji kot punkerji ter kasneje cybernisti.

    Cut-ups, Cut-ins, Cut-outs
    The Art of William S. Burroughs
    19 February–7 April 2013

    Cut-ups, Cut-ins, Cut-outs: The Art of William S. Burroughs is a presentation of the exciting and experimental oeuvre of American writer and artist, William Seward Burroughs (1914–1997). It encompasses a thematic selection of his works created in a variety of mediums: from audio cut-ups, visual collages and abstract paintings depicted with a shotgun, to rare books, films, photographs and ephemeral material. Many works have so far been rarely exhibited. The artwork of William S. Burroughs is hard to define, since the artist offers many ways of reading and understanding his extensive creative oeuvre. The exhibition places a special focus on the collage and cut-up techniques, which form an important and influential part of Burroughs’ artistic language, as well as his creative legacy.
    Since Burroughs’ cut-ups can be seen at MGLC in numerous and very diverse mediums all in one place, the exhibition highlights the merging of artistic fields, so typical for his body of work. He had an influence on a wide range of pop culture, art, music and digital sampling with this method. The cut-up method was a continuation of the ideas of Tristan Tzara, which he described in How to Make a Dadaist Poem (Pour faire un poème dadaïste, 1920). Burroughs acquainted Brion Gysin with this method, who accidentally discovered or re-invented it in Paris in October 1959, when cutting out passe-partouts for watercolours with a Stanley knife.
    Burroughs influenced the work of several generations of artists with his innovations, and generally made an impact on the thinking of several generations with his viewpoints. Burroughs’ early experiments in collage, with all the possibilities that they opened up, exerted great influence on a number of musicians in the way they spliced magnetic tape and formed texts, like for instance The Beatles, Frank Zappa, Lou Reed, David Bowie, Brian Eno, Patti Smith, Laurie Anderson and Sonic Youth. But as a free-thinker, Burroughs was particularly influential during the period when he spent time with the American beatniks, including Jack Kerouac and Allen Ginsberg. His idea of the electronic revolution was adopted by the hippies as well as the punks, and later by the cybernists.

  4. Sensory Spaces is a series of commissioned solo projects presented in the Willem van der Vorm Gallery, located in the freely accessible exhibition space in the entrance hall of Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen. Artists are invited to respond to the architectural qualities of the space, emphasizing notions of transformation and surprise.

    Sabine Hornig (Germany, lives in Berlin) is known for her photographs, sculptures and installations that distort or intensify our experience of space and time. At first glance, her work can appear deceptively simple, but with a longer look, it becomes evident that it is testing the viewer’s perception. This gallery-sized installation, specially produced for Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen, is no exception. The work consists of an open wooden structure with transparent printed fabric stretched over it on the inside. Handmade architectural elements, including a window sill, table platform and a swinging wall, have been placed on either side of the construction.

    In this video, Sabine Hornig and curator Saskia van Kampen-Prein explain the work and the process behind it.

    Sensory Spaces 2 - Sabine Hornig was on view from 12 October 2013 till 26 January 2014.


    With the generous support of Ammodo.

  5. Peter Zegveld is visual artist and theatre director. In Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen, he is exhibiting ten examples of his visual art. Physical principles play an important role; light, sound, movement and gravity are inextricably linked to his work.

    In 1961, when Zegveld was nine years old, he visited the exhibition Bewogen Beweging [Moving Movement] in the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam, and this left an indelible impression on him, particularly the free, unconventional character of the sculptures. This can be seen in the work he produced many years later. All his work moves and is witty and imaginative in character. Zegveld invites the visitor to the exhibition not only to view his work but also to experience it.

    In this video Peter Zegveld talks of his experience at the Moving Movement exhibition and discusses the importance of play and imagination for his work.

    Peter Zegveld - Sculptures and installations is open until 12 January 2014
