Published on the occasion of the exhibition 'Animism' at Extra City - Kunsthal Antwerpen and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Antwerp (M HKA), 22 January–2 May and Kunsthalle Bern, 15 May–18 July 2010. This publication does not document the exhibition but seeks to lay a foundation for further inquiry into the issues concerned.

'What is the role of aesthetic processes in the drawing of the boundaries between nature and culture, humans and things, the animate and inanimate? Structured around the aesthetic processes and effects of animation and mummification, Animism brings together artistic and theoretical perspectives that reflect on the boundary between subjects and objects, and the modern anxiety that accompanies the relation between "persons" and "things."' —from the back cover

With artists' and authors' biographies. Please note only Asian participating artists are listed in 'Artist/s'.
