I’m looking forward to the upcoming US release of Willem Sandberg: portrait of An Artist – a new new book from the Dutch publisher Valiz.
From the Publisher:
“After the Second World War, Willem Sandberg (NL, 1897–1984) transformed the Amsterdam Stedelijk museum into a dynamic centre for modern and innovative art and culture. He did this with exceptional creativity and in close collaboration with artists and architects. Sandberg had distinct ideas about heading up a museum for modern and contemporary art, about the importance of art, about dealing with artists and about his work as typographic designer, but also about social responsibility and community.
This book is based on interviews with Sandberg (from 1971 and 1981) and offers first-hand insight into questions such as: what does the task of museum director entail; how does art criticism work; what is the essence of being an artist; what does the ideal museum architecture look like; and what is the role of art and the museum in society?”

Set during the political uprising in Cairo, Egypt, during 2011, It’s Time to Move marries Peter Wieben’s text and pencil and gouache illustrations with documentary photography by Dominic Nahr. Part fiction and part truth, the resulting work explores the fears, hopes and unique observations of a small pocket of witnesses living through these extraordinary times.
