Willem de Rooij: Index at Index



I’m in the process of finalizing an essay for the publication of Willem de Rooij’s Index: Riots, Protest, Mourning and Commemoration (as represented in newspapers, January 2000- July 2002). This “Bilderatlas”-type installation will be reformatted for the book, which was initiated by Axel Wieder in collaboration with Willem. After Arnolfini in Bristol, Axel is now (starting April 18) showing the Index installation at the conveniently (or confusingly) named art space Index in Stockholm. The book will be out later this spring or summer.
