Oorlog en terpentijn : roman by Stefan Hertmans( Book )

30 editions published between 2013 and 2016 in 7 languages and held by 307 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this vivid and masterful novel, a Flemish man reconstructs his grandfather's story--his life, loves, and art, all disrupted by the first World War--from the unflinching notebooks he left behind. Short Description War and Turpentine centers on two men distanced by time: a religious painter whose life is changed forever by World War One; and his grandson, a writer reckoning with his grandfather's story. The life of Urbain Martien--artist, soldier, survivor of the incomprehensible--lies contained in two notebooks written before his death in 1981. His grandson, a writer, imagines his way into the locked chambers of Urbain's memory: retouching church paintings as a boy, dodging death in an iron foundry, and, ultimately, fighting the war that altered the course of human history. There is Urbain's father, the lowly church painter; Urbain's wife, Gabrielle, his true love's sister; and Urbain's canvas, the ever-present reminder of the artist he wanted to be and the soldier he was forced to become. Wrestling with this story, the narrator straddles past and present, searching for a place in both. As artfully rendered as a Renaissance fresco, War and Turpentine paints the extraordinary story of one man's life and the echo of its impact resounding through the generations. Translated from the Dutch by David McKay"--
Intercities by Stefan Hertmans( Book )

23 editions published between 1998 and 2007 in 3 languages and held by 208 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Intercities, Stefan Hertmans thinks about what constitutes identity in present-day Europe and Australia. Looking at people and cities from the periphery, he tries to discover an 'archaeology of streets and faces' which could bring him closer to himself. Set in cities at the margins such as Trieste, Marseilles, Dresden and Bratislava, and in major ones like Vienna, Sydney and Amsterdam, Intercities is about the feeling of being abroad, of losing part of one's self in order to gain a richer life. Mingling travel stories with philosophical reflections, Hertmans's text proves the eighteenth-century observation that every journey is a 'voyage around your own chamber'. His book is a personal statement about living in Europe today which looks beyond the surface to the heart of contemporary urban existence."--Jacket

Het verborgen weefsel : roman by Stefan Hertmans( Book )

4 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in Dutch and held by 81 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Het verborgen weefsel is een verslag van de innerlijke strijd van een veertigjarige vrouw. Wat vraagt haar schrijverschap, waarmee ze overhoop ligt, van haar? En waar is haar verloren zuster gebleven? De kloof tussen haar gedachten en het leven met haar man en dochtertje lijkt nauwelijks meer te overbruggen. Zelfs een reis naar het buitenland en een buitenechtelijke relatie kunnen haar niet tot zichzelf brengen. Met subtiele toetsen wordt een intrigerend portret geschetst van een vrouw die leeft met alle verworvenheden van de emancipatie. Haar melancholie en haar creatieve vertwijfeling leiden naar een onverwachte ontknoping

TRACK is an art experience taking place in the public and semi-public space of Ghent. It offers enriching and unexpected encounters with the city, its history and its inhabitants, stimulating reflection on urban realities and, in a wider sense, the contemporary human condition. Thirty-five international artists were invited to conceive new artworks strongly rooted in the urban fabric of Ghent, but linking the local context with issues of global significance. Participants include multi-media artist John Bock, performance artist and choreographer Alexandra Bachzetsis, painter Erik van Lieshout, and visual artist Mircea Cantor, among many others.0Exhibition: Gent (12.5.-16.9.2012)

Essays met kritiek op wat de auteur "de gevoelloze emotie" of ook "de overspanning van de emotie" noemt, waar ongeveer alle media zich constant aan bezondigen. De kunsten hebben hier ook mee te maken. De kritische distantie van de kunstenaar lijkt ingeruild voor het verlangen om mee te doen. Recensie in: De Groene Amsterdammer. 135(2011)49(8dec.49)
