BLIK # 4.0 was released just before Christmas in 2010. This edition contains a varied palette of articles, with topics ranging from film music to art philosophy. The column is about the usefulness of (contemporary) film and art criticism, and the film analysis of cruel intentions is a theoretical and analytical gem. Among all the theoretical situations there are also beautiful illustrations by Vera van Groos and an interview with media philosopher Jos de Mul. In short, a rich first issue of the 2010-2011 academic year.
To be aware of memories is to be aware of the past. However, it is a mistake to want to hold on to the past for its own sake. This last edition of the academic year 2010-2011 is not only concerned with memory in terms of content, but also in terms of form. As an experiment, we printed the cover of BLIK # 4.2 in Alex Barbais’s letterpress studio. Asher Boersma, who says goodbye to us with this song, has set and printed the cover of this BLIK: Nescio’s Ten Commandments.
