CAVE 1: TERRITORIES. Ed. by Els Silvrants-Barclay and Pieternel Vermoortel. Contemporary Art Heritage Flanders, 2016. Published in association with Sternberg Press, Berlin. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Ram Publications, Santa Monica. 176 pp. 22 x 15 cm. ISBN 9783956791369 In English.
Publisher's description: Why, what, how and for whom should public art institutions collect today? What is the role and responsibility of the contemporary art museum? The first issue of the new publications series from Contemporary Art Heritage, Flanders, Cave 1: Territories invites historians, curators, artists and other thinkers to contribute fiction, art theory, research reports, art-historical case studies, archive documents, conversations, anecdotes, visual essays or artworks. From Jef Geys on Le Corbusier's 1964 plan to build the Museum of Unlimited Growth in Antwerp to Clementine Deliss's manifesto on the multidisciplinary claim to collections, 16 contributors address the role of museums and collections for identity making and territorial representation, the increasing invisibility of the collection, processes of inclusion and exclusion, and the general distrust of history in contemporary art museums. Designed like a folder, with a fold-out of museum floor plans nested inside, this publication is a hefty little package of ideas.
