"In mijn werk houd ik mij op allerlei manieren bezig met dat wat we gemakshalve de Oriënt noemen, het Oosten. In de kunsten is er een lange traditie om die exotische Oriënt in het Westen te verbeelden. De opera van Bizet speelt zich af op het eiland Sri Lanka, maar is eigenlijk gesitueerd in een fictief Oosten. Dat principe zegt veel over hoe wij de Ander maar vooral ook onszelf zien."

Auteur en dramaturg Willem Bruls gidst de lezer door 'Les Pêcheurs de perles', het bijzondere jeugdwerk uit 1863 van de Franse componist Georges Bizet.

✨Nieuw volume in de reeks 'Operatheek'✨
📔 Georges Bizet: Les Pêcheurs de perles

'Les Pêcheurs de perles' ofwel 'De parelvissers' uit 1863 is een bijzonder jeugdwerk van de Franse componist Georges Bizet. Deze opera zit vol prachtige melodieën, pakkende scènes, emotionele confrontaties én het allermooiste duet voor tenor en bariton. Wat het werk extra interessant maakt, is de oriëntaalse en exotische situering, die zowel het verhaal als de muziek een bijzondere g***s verlenen.

Essentieel leesvoer voor al wie geïnteresseerd is in de pre-industriële geschiedenis van circulaire economie en recyclage. 👇

Nieuw nummer van het tijdschrift 'Nieuwe Tijdingen':
📙 ‘De circulaire economie in de vroegmoderne Nederlanden', Djoeke van Netten, Jasper van der Steen (red.)

De Nederlandse en Vlaamse overheden willen naar een circulaire economie in 2050. Duurzaamheid is een belangrijk thema voor de toekomst. Recyclen deden mensen in de vroegmoderne Lage Landen echter ook al. In dit jaarboek onderzoeken de auteurs hoe circulair de steden waren vóór de industrialisatie. Hoe was het hergebruik van afval en restproducten geregeld? Wat was de waarde ervan en wat deed men ermee? In hoeverre kan ook worden gesproken van een andere cultuur en appreciatie rond afval en tweedehandsmateriaal?

✨ Book Review ✨

"In a profound and well-articulated reflection, this book engages in a rigorous dialogue (or marriage) between historiography and iconography. The dynamics that structure this uneasy pairing, in a pendulum movement of mutual influence, far from tension-free, perfectly suit a global and historical figure such as Lumumba.", Elisabeth Dikizeko, African Studies Review

⭐ Available in paperback and 🔓

In the aftermath of Covid-19, the subject of ‘empty places’ has gained renewed topicality and resonance. 'Watching, Waiting' presents a collection of essays that brings emptiness into interdisciplinary focus as an object of study that extends beyond the present. The contributors approach the specific interrelationships of photography and place through emptiness by considering historical and contemporary material in equal measure. Drawing on architecture, anthropology, sociology, and public health, among other fields, they provide insights into geographically and temporally diverse production models of empty places and their corresponding complex and sensitive global and local relations, while also tackling the ethics of behaviour and protests that unfold within them.

⭐ BOOK REVIEW ⭐

Considering the past, present, and future of the 'Opera Village', Sarah Hegenbart's 'From Bayreuth to Burkina Faso: Christoph Schlingensief's Opera Village Africa as Postcolonial Gesamtkunstwerk?' contributes to the body of research on the project with a monograph based on her extensive field research in Burkina Faso. Over six chapters, she sheds light on the project's postcolonial and neo-colonial ambivalence while critically reflecting on the 'Opera Village's potential for facilitating a process of multi-perspectival and multi-directional exchange between the Global North and the Global South.

“L’Étrurie est à la mode”, French archaeologist Salomon Reinach bluntly stated in 1927.

Since the beginning of the nineteenth century, Etruria had not only been attracting the attention of archaeologists and specialists of all sorts, but it had also been a fascinating and, in some cases, captivating destination for poets, novelists, painters and sculptors from all over Europe. This volume deals with the impact of the constantly expanding knowledge on the Etruscans and their mysterious civilisation on Italian, French, English, and German literature, arts and culture, with particular regard to the modernist period (1890–1950). The volume brings a distinctive point of view to the subject by approaching it from an interdisciplinary and comparative perspective, and by looking at a quite diverse range of topics and artefacts, which includes, but is not limited to, the study of drawings, art works, travel essays, novels, cooking recipes, schoolbooks, photographs, and movies.

✝ From the early centuries of Christianity, 1 November and 2 November have been observed as days to remember the dead.

🎼 Few western musical repertories speak more to the imagination than the Requiem mass for the dead. 'The Book of Requiems' presents in-depth essays on the most important works in this tradition, from the origins of the genre up to the present day. Each chapter is devoted to a specific Requiem, and offers both historical information and a detailed work-discussion.

"The Requiem repertory is actually very extensive. With the series we hope to deepen knowledge about well-known pieces, and introduce some less well-known ones to specialists, music performers, and a musically interested broad public."

'The Book of Requiems' is a multi-volume set, available in hardback and ebook.

Radically subjective. Radically unapologetic. Radically demanding. These are the hallmarks of Dirk Lauwaert’s skill, attitude, and sensitivity, which are the result of radical attention.

Belgian writer and critic Dirk Lauwaert (1944–2013) wrote about images, be they moving or still, historical or contemporary, overfamiliar or unseen. He experienced them intensely, studied them attentively, and connected them to ethical, philosophical, or social issues in texts that invited readers to do the same, whether they were leaving the movie theater, browsing a photo book, or visiting an exhibition.

This selection presents the depth and scope of Lauwaert’s immense output through 15 key texts in which the Belgian author unfolds his central ideas and motifs, displaying his kaleidoscopic thinking and essayistic ability. The texts span 25 years – from 1983 to 2008 – and were originally published in various contexts over the course of three decades.

The United Nations General Assembly designated October 1 as the International Day of Older Persons!

Silver empowerment is a valuable paradigm to improve care and support systems for older persons. It aims to counteract the dominant image of ageing, which is all too often one of decline, dependency and vulnerability, and rather sees ageing and the ageing population as a challenge that opens up new opportunities. By focusing on the strengths and connections of older persons, silver empowerment strives for an inclusive, age-friendly society that will allow everyone to grow old with dignity and meaning. In this book, leading academics from a variety of disciplines discuss ways to enhance the empowerment of older persons in practice.
