David Claerbout will personally introduce his newly published book dedicated to his graphic oeuvre, which offers a look behind the scenes of his seminal video works.

Drawings and Studies

Belgian artist David Claerbout is known for investigating the conceptual impact of the passage of time through his use of video and digital photography. His oeuvre is characterized by a meticulous attention to production details, painstakingly created, often over a period of years. With each of his projects Claerbout creates a small number of drawings, which help him to reflect upon and comprehend his concepts more thoroughly. Up to now, these works have not been afforded the attention they deserve. This publication addresses that oversight in a striking way, presenting, to a larger public for the first time, a comprehensive overview of Claerbout’s drawings created over a period of two decades.
