What is the Moon?
Rodrigo Hernández
booklet   poster   

This publication includes contributions by artists, writers and curators who were asked to submit a text or image free of any formal provision. These contributions are presented in dialogue with Rodrigo’s drawings, stories, dreams, sketches for sculptures and collected quotes. The thread connecting these different fragments is elusive and demands a certain playful willingness from the reader. The result is a composition of words and images that explores concepts such as perception, authorship, message, imagination, ambiguity and representation; close to the ventures of Dada publishing experiments.

What is the moon?, writer Arnisa Zeqo said, is an adolescent and romantic question.
The publication is released in conjunction with the exhibition of the same title, held at the Bonnefantenmuseum in Maastricht from September 2014 to January 2015. The making of this publication was supported by the Jan Van Eyck Academie and the Laurenz-Haus Stiftung Basel.
