Book design Center and Periphery by Sam Eggermont

Context is Everything is working on editing and designing the book Center and Periphery by Belgian artist Sam Eggermont.

‘Where do we stand?’ is an important question for Eggermont, but the question ‘how did we end up here?’ is possibly even more important. In his contemporary, strongly socially-motivated artistic practice he doesn’t so much occupy the narrow space of the ‘here and now’ as he makes leaps and bounds (‘migrations’, if you like) to other times and places, bringing the far-away near and transforming the near to something intangible, an ever-shifting collection of fragmentary influences and histories.

The book will be published in November 2016.
