‘Karin Arink - States of Self’ monographical book
made on the occasion of my solo of the same title in Stedelijk Museum Schiedam NL 2008
made in close collaboration with friend, artist and graphic designer Bibo
this book is structured into 7 chapters based on the psycho-social model of Engel (1980)

these chapters were ‘states of self’ ranging from the microscopic inside an organism (tissues & elements) to the body-as-posture (carrier) to the body-as-sign (sign) to the body as interface between me and the other (face facade) to me in relation to you (you&me) to the relations within a family (mumbag) to me in relation to bigger structures (influence)
as you can see these same were used as one of the navigations through this website as well…
each spread shows 1 key work on the right hand page, combined with related works - non-chronologically ordered - and/or with sketches of the work

the introduction text is written by me, the book also has texts on my work by Anne Berk, Petra Else Jekel and Wilma Sütö
monography published on the occasion of my solo ‘Karin Arink - States of Self’ in Stedelijk Museum Schiedam 2008, with generous support of Fonds BKVB (now Mondriaan Fonds), Galerie Tanya Rumpff, Stedelijk Museum Schiedam
