a film event with films made by artists who have collaborated with GAGARIN and published an original text in the magazine.

Juan Munoz + Gavin Bryars : "A Man in a Room Gambling" (2015, 6')

Kathmandu Triennale 2017
The artists' magazine GAGARIN the Artists in their Own Words was invited to take part in the Kathmandu Triennale 2017. KT2017 will be held at multiple venues accross the Karthmandu Valley. Central exhibition will be "The City: My Studio / The City: My Life" curated by Philippe van Cauteren. A historical perspective on the edition theme will survey Nepali art history and children- specific considerations / interventions are being prioritized to make the central exhibition accesible to younger viewers. The cost of organising KT2017 is offset by vigorous fundraising campaign conducted locally and through grants from international foundations. Major costs include the production of all art works nationally, which helps boost local economy and creates more opportunities for the national art scene to exchange skills and perspectives. Belgian artist Francis Alys will be the art patron of this KT2017. Other participating artists are Peter Downsbrough, Javie Téllez, Lee kit, Surasi Kusolwong, Oscar Murillo, Shilpa Gupta, etc...

At the occasion of the publication of GAGARIN #33 - the last issue of the magazine - publisher and founder Wilfried Huet curates an exhibtion at the Museum of Contemporary Art  S.M.A.K. in Ghent. On view are works by artists who have written for GAGARIN or share the wilfulness of the magazine. In the exhibition, the concept of artistry and GAGARIN are freely associated with two Greek Myths that are connected with the labyrint of Knossos : the fall of Icarus and the tread of Ariadne. In Huets' contemporary scenario, both Icarus and Ariadne are the alter egos of the artist, while the labyrint mirrors our globalized society. By means of the specific structure of the exhibition, analogue with the rhythm, the positioning of the artists texts and the white spaces in each GAGARIN issue, a network of divergent associations takes shape. With works by Leonor Antunes, Jack Arnold, Rosa Barba, Maya Deren, Marcel Duchamp, Joao Maria Gusmao + Pedro Paiva, Bernd Lohaus, Anthony McCall, Roman Ondak, Michael Ross, Grazia Toderi, Marilou van Lierop and one quote form Pablo Picasso.

See How the Land Lays is the title of an exhibition realized by HELD in response to the ending of the artsits' periodical GAGARIN. The exhibition focuses on the idea of GAGARIN being the first man in space. See how the land lays aims to create a picture of the "vue plongeante" that the cosmonaut caught sight of when coming back to earth from the orbit. The exhibition is composed with works from artists who have written a contribution for the magazine: Saâdane Afif, Guillaume Bijl, Edith Dekyndt, Latifa Echakhch, Suchan Kinoshita, Gabriel Kuri, Marilou van Lierop, Javier Téllez, Dieogo Tonus and Fabio Zimbres. HELD is a group of four independent aficionados of contemporary art in Belgium. Their initials H(uet), E(ngelen), L(ohaus), D(evriendt) form the vigorous logo of this diverse group. HELD is practice oriented and positions itself as the partner in crime of the artist. The quartet boards the boat that the artists are sailing in, and takes a seat on the boat while searching for a new stage.

GAGARIN the Artists in their own Words
Wilfried Huet (guest professor) will conduct this master seminar reflecting on the coming into being and the specific editorial positioning of the artist’s magazine 'GAGARIN the Artists in their Own Words' in the artistic environment that characterizes the art world of today. GAGARIN is published twice a year since the millennium year 2000 and documents the first decades of this century in artists’ writings. It's purpose is primarily artistic, but also to provide an accurate source of information about contemporary artists using their own words. Reflecting on the collected writings of GAGARIN (publisher and founder) Wilfried Huet will focus on the contributions, the background of the contributing artists and the evolution of GAGARIN over the years. Showcasing a large selection of GAGARIN-artists, this parley-based readings speculate on the materialisation and dematerialisation of the commissioned artist's writings.
