A book published by Onomatopee in the aftermath of our research project INTO LONGING, VAST ROCK. Throughout this publication, situations and visual scenarios, co-production and dialogue run hand in hand with final works. Against the backdrop of antagonistic dynamics such as absence and presence, the sublime and the real, underground and popular culture, it features insightful texts by L.A. critic Jan Tumlir, Dutch philosopher Rene Gabriels and an introduction by Onomatopee director Freek Lomme which articulates the committed roles of viewer and artwork. By representing the work as well as analytically mapping and experimentally expanding our cultural longing, this book creates a vibrant horizon for indentification.

An official book launch will be held at the Bonnefantenmuseum (Maastricht, The Netherlands) on october 16th 2014. The programme consists of a discussion between Rene Gabriels, Freek Lomme and myself, moderated by Stijn Huijts, the museum's artistic director, after which we will put an end to it all by performing with Teenage Slaves of Satan.
