Thu 18.02 — 20:00 BOEKS & Kunstenbibliotheek i.s.m. GAME ensemble: To Be Continued van Christian Marclay – Livestream
Under the title To Be Continued, BOEKS and Kunstenbibliotheek conclude the Post*Comics exhibition, book and ongoing online text project. The question of how, for example, the comic strip develops into ‘something else’ in this fluid ‘post-medium’ age brought us, among others, to post-comic pioneer Christian Marclay. The Swiss-American visual artist and composer has been cutting and pasting with music, noise, film, book and image since the 1970s. His continued attention for the musical potential of our daily lives led, among others, to the graphic score To Be Continued.
Published as a comic book in 2016, To Be Continued is a score for guitar, double bass, woodwinds and percussion, each page counts a duration of 30 seconds while being performed, “the speech bubbles are evocative of mood and dynamic, and should not be vocalized.” 
The book consists of a 48-page patchwork of cutouts from comics. They depict the complementing / conflicting musician / instrument / listener with a SNAP! - moderato - TAP -FLAOUPFF! in the snow - POPS! – hammering EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE - Ça va durer longtemps? 
In 24 minutes time, Jacqueline Berndt, Lucas Messler, Sjors Vandermark, Sinouhé Gilot and Elliott Harrison, five students from the Ghent Advanced Master Ensemble (GAME) led by Joris Blanckaert, twist and transform this chaotic multitude of characters and onomatopoeia into a one-time-only sound collage.
Dive into Christian Marclay's book at and once there, explore the Post*Comics slip box filled with texts. To Be Continued was originally conceived for and performed by EnsemBle baBel:
