Atlas of a Paper Empire is a cartography of the San Telmo Museum in Donostia / San Sebastian through the old maps from its archive. After digitizing the documents, the artists Iratxe Jaio and Klaas van Gorkum have created an algorithm that plots a random path across a world bound only by the limits of the museum’s own collection. In this way, Atlas of a Paper Empire reduces the world to the scale of the museum, directing the gaze from its building towards the city, the province, the state, the continent, until reaching the former colonies.

Atlas of a Paper Empire was produced for Museo Bikoitza (Double Museum), an annual program of rereadings of the San Telmo Museum collection and its narratives of display. The opening presentation is on the 28th of July 2022, at 11:00 a.m., with drinks at 12:00 in the museum patio. The installation will be on display for a whole year, after which it will form part of the museum's collection.

For the project Atlas of a Paper Empire we have asked our friend, artist and bookbinder Nobuko Hayashi to produce a handbound volume that could function as a projection screen. Together with the experienced Henk Roest from Boekbinderij Roest, she has realized a tome of extraordinary dimensions. It measures 70cm by 100cm when opened, and counts 540 blank pages that have been sewn together by hand.

The strict division between the categories of fine art and ethnography in museums of cultural heritage is a contentious topic. Any attempt to redress the balance between the two tends to meet with resistance, as soon as it challenges the core values and conventions from which museums derive their authority.

With Museo Bikoitza, however, the San Telmo Museum in Donostia / San Sebastian has generously opened up a pioneering space of experimentation between these categories, and granted a prominent role to artistic practices in the development of innovative approaches to its own ethnographic collection and narratives of display.

To do justice to the scope of this undertaking requires a certain cultural sensibility, and a capacity to look beyond the horizon of one’s own discipline. That is why, after careful deliberation, we are pleased to nominate Hinrich Sachs as our successor in the Museo Bikoitza project.

In July 2021 we have been given a year to work in the archives of the San Telmo Museum in Donostia / San Sebastian, and to produce an artwork that is based on a rereading of its ethnographic collection and display narratives. It is a prestigious commission, in the framework of Museo Bikoitza, a programme initiated by the artist Asier Mendizabal, and which has invited artists such as Ibon Aranberri, Erlea Maneros and Jose Mari Zabala.

Iratxe Jaio and Klaas van Gorkum are presenting their installation False Flag in Brutus, the largest contemporary art exhibition and performance space in the Netherlands. Their work will be on display from 1 July to 31 July 2022, as part of the Wild Summer of Art, an enormous exhibition with selected young talent and established names with new work by a total of 180 artists.

The Dutch variant of the annual Royal Academy Summer Exhibition
Wild Summer of Art offers an overview of the current state of affairs. Visitors can purchase the exhibited works directly from the artist. Depending on the results, Wild Summer of Art will become a recurring annual event similar to the Summer Exhibition at London's Royal Academy.

BRUTUS, the location of Wild Summer of Art is unique in its raw appearance. In this Artist Driven Playground, participants can go as big as they want. The composition of Wild Summer of Art is in the hands of a curatorial team led by Piet de Jonge (former curator of the Van Abbemuseum, Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen and Museum Kröller-Müller), Jessy Koeiman (curator Collective Learning, Art Institute Melly) and Liesbeth Bik (visual artist and curator). The curators were advised by twelve professional scouts, who suggested artists, which resulted in a broadly composed whole.

The point of departure for this work is ‘Le Drapeau Noir’ (Black Flag), a relatively unknown painting by the Belgian surrealist René Magritte, which the artists came across during their research on art related to the Spanish Civil War. Produced in 1937, the canvas is said to have been inspired by the bombing of Gernika. It features a number of futuristic airplanes ominously hanging above the horizon. Like props from a science fiction movie, they seem to foreshadow the drones and satellites that circle our planet today, pointing towards a fundamental aspect of this historical moment: the way technological progress in aviation would forever alter humankind’s relation to territory.

Jaio and van Gorkum have manufactured three-dimensional models of these airplanes.

Het Archeologisch Museum van Bilbao presenteert samen met ANTespacio “Bandera Falsa” (Valse vlag), een tentoonstelling met nieuw werk van het kunstenaarsduo Iratxe Jaio en Klaas van Gorkum.

Uitgangspunt voor deze tentoonstelling is “Le Drapeau Noir” (Zwarte Vlag), een relatief onbekend schilderij van de Belgische surrealist René Magritte, dat de kunstenaars ontdekten tijdens hun onderzoek naar kunst in relatie tot de Spaanse Burgeroorlog. Het doek is in 1937 gerealiseerd, en zou zijn geïnspireerd op het massa-bombardement door de nazis op Gernika. Het toont een aantal futuristische vliegtuigen die onheilspellend boven de horizon hangen. Als rekwisieten uit een sciencefictionfilm lijken ze de drones en satellieten te voorafschaduwen die vandaag onze planeet omcirkelen, en wijzen ze ons op een fundamenteel aspect van dat historische moment: de manier waarop technologische vooruitgang in de luchtvaart de verhouding van de mensheid tot haar territorium voorgoed zou veranderen.

“Valse Vlag” combineert driedimensionale modellen van de vliegtuigen, geluid en video met een selectie van voorwerpen uit de collectie van het museum, om een diorama te creëren van het Baskische berglandschap.

Maar het resultaat is geen getrouwe weergave van een schouwspel uit de geschiedenis. De interventie van Jaio en van Gorkum in het Archeologisch Museum omarmt de incongruenties en anachronismen van het schilderij van Magritte, die zij beschouwen als een aberratie binnen het historisch canon waarin dat andere schilderij, “Guernica” van Picasso, een centrale rol speelt. Vanuit de marges van dat canon dienen Magrittes vliegmachines als vehikel voor een onorthodoxe reflectie op moderniteit en op de rol die kunst speelt in de collectieve verbeelding van het historisch geheugen.

Met dank aan: Laura Díez García, Ting Fung Cheung, Iñaki van Gorkum Jaio, Josetxo Jaio, Oihane Sánchez Duro, Liben Svaart en Iker Vázquez.

Ondersteund door: Eremuak, Bilbao Aurrera en het Mondriaan Fonds.
