The Responsive Subject

by FormContent

A publication produced in relation to the homonymous exhibition that took place at MuZee (Ostend, BE), that presented the work of Belgium artist Guy Mees (1935—2003) in relation to works by Gyan Panchal, Ian Kiaer and João Gusmão & Pedro Paiva.

FormContent decided to edit the exhibition catalogue as a reader, inviting different contributors and asking them to look back at their own practice through a free response to Mees’ work. Found in the book are, a.o., Andrea Büttner, Michael Dean, Beatrice Gibson & Will Holder, Andrew Renton, Nanni Balestrini, Ruth Höflich, Bridget Penney, Tom Benson, Simone Menegoi, Philomene Pirecki and Shaan Syed.
