Publishing is one of the strong points among the Institut d'Art Contemporain's activities, as it had been also for the Nouveau Musée. Whether it be precise and thorough monographs, artists' writings, or theoretical works drawing on contributions from great thinkers in contemporary art, the accent is placed on exacting standards of writing and on new and original collaborations, faithful in this to the spirit of research inherent to the Institut.

Produced on the occasion of Janssens' first exhibition in the Nordic countries, in Kiasma, this monograph focuses on an essential aspect of her practice: the exploration of luminous matter. It brings together installation views from the last twenty years as well as essays on the artist's examination of visual perception in her work.
