In-Residence Magazine

A publication by Vermeir & Heiremans

On the occasion of their participation in Manifesta 9 Limburg, Vermeir & Heiremans published In-Residence Magazine, designed by Swiss graphic designer Salome Schmuki. This artist publication – a ‘faux’ lifestyle magazine – produces a reflection on the new video work The Residence (a wager for the afterlife) (2012). It contains source materials, as well as a series of articles that resulted from Reading Room, a discursive platform that was set up in collaboration with Extra City (Antwerp). For Manifesta 9 Limburg the artists also produced the magazine in a special edition, as ‘a scroll’, presented on a 14m long table as part of their presentation.
