Me in my going out of myself (and you in yours)
Reinier Vrancken & Émile Hermans
Published by Reinier Vrancken, Rotterdam, 2022, 8 pages and inserts (colour & b/w ill.), 21 × 29.7 cm, English
Price: €5

Produced on the occasion of the exhibition Me in my going out of myself (and you in yours) by Reinier Vrancken & Émile Hermans at SB34 The Pool, Brussels. Designed by Robert Milne.

“…exchanges and relationships—from me to you and vice versa—with circulating objects and identities, fiction and artificiality, and unstable ontological statuses. From Émile Hermans to Reinier Vrancken, or the other way around, it’s a matter of becoming the other a little, of letting oneself be taken in hand so as to project unexpressed desires. In the space of SB34-The Pool, clothes are lent, flowers offered, we breathe the scent of a stranger, choose the work of a friend, project ourselves through it, and finally, with circumspection, decide on the status of what we have observed.”—exhibition press release

Before it had a name… a distant permanent storm… a 4.5 billion year old nuclear war… a creation of condensed interstellar dust… a collapse… the destruction of four million tons of matter every second… sending itself… wriggling through space… to your face… the morning light…

Homework by Snack Syndicate (Andrew Brooks & Astrid Lorange) collects twenty-seven texts written over the course of 2016–2020. Homework considers the manifold ways that embodied life (birth, death, love, friendship, solidarity, race, gender, sexuality, citizenship) are conditioned by a world that appears both ruinous and full of potential. Snack Syndicate asks how to read ruins and how to read the prophecy of hope that threads together a long history of survival and struggle. The book offers a guide for this reading, taking study to be a lifelong practice. It suggests a model for homework as the promise we make to each other through study and to the ghosts who carry us forward.

Introduction by Tom Melick and designed by Robert Milne.
