Marcel Broodthaers: My Ogre Book, Shadow Theater, Midnight

Translated by Elizabeth Zuba.

Two poetry collections and one series of rarely reproduced slide projections by Marcel Broodthaers.

This intimate and gorgeously produced book pairs Belgian artist-poet Marcel Broodthaers’ first two collections of poetry, My Ogre Book (1957) and Midnight (1960)—both previously unpublished in English—with an 80-image projection work, Shadow Theater (1973–74), made toward the end of his too-brief life. Together these works reveal a dizzyingly prodigious interplay between the images and texts, particularly illuminating Broodthaers’ use of the oblique and dark fairytale framework within (and against) which he plays with reflections and reproductions, inversions and fictions, body and shadow, decor and violence. My Ogre Book (Mon livre d’ogre) and Midnight (Minuit) served as a wellspring for Broodthaers’ later visual work: he continually recycled and reworked them into new schemata in his installations, films, sculptures and paintings. Both are wildly cinematic books that perform like a fictional theater set (or museum) for a dark fable of which we are only dimly aware. In this vein, Shadow Theater (Ombres chinoises), published in full for the first time here, creates a fantastical poetic landscape of semblance and sleights of hand. The three works are published together to provide the reader with an unprecedented opportunity to read Broodthaers in both language and image.
PRAISE AND REVIEWS

Art Ltd.

George Melrod

A unique space within the realm of institutional critique… The modest but lovely book... can be savored on its own terms.

Hyperallergic

James Gibbons

There’s a restlessness on display in Broodthaers’s poetry that reveals something integral about what he achieved through his career’s varied projects. The poems seem to come from a radically different place than the later visual and conceptual work, but what unites all of it is an emphasis on renewal, reinvention, moving onward in the wake of what one has brought to completion.
