Vertikal Klub

Book launch

May 14, 2014


The publication Vertikal Klub is a manual for future installations of the “Vertical Club”, a project launched by Willem Oorebeek in 1994 and which has been developing ever since. The book not only compiles present and (potential) future members of Oorebeek’s “Vertical Club”, but also reflects on the use and representation of the human figure in print media. Text and image are connected in a radical way, pushing the idea of administrative visual statistics towards the absurd. Vertikal Klub raises the question as to the admission policy and representational use of the human figure in dark times.
