Mariken Overdijk - The City as Anthology: Movements at the Margins of Public Space

This book is about bodies. Presenting the work of artist Mariken Overdijk, it explores how bodies traverse the familiar surroundings of one’s home or move along the familiar routes of everyday life, but also the relation of bodies to public space. It stages research, interrogates, describes, draws, explores, and thus offers a series of choreographies of ordinary life.

On another level, the book also addresses how artistic research recounts the experiments and experiences, collections and vistas gained by the researcher during the course of their work. It shows that any good (artistic) research also creates futures. Overdijk makes clear that artworks are not singular events, but each creates a possibility that, however minimal, changes lives forever.

Mariken Overdijk is performance artist and tutor at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam.

Foreword by Jeroen Boomgaard (former professor of the Lectorate Art & Public Space).
