Forked Apologies gathers twenty-five texts by Michael Van den Abeele, all but two written on invitation by fellow artists and architects in the course of the last ten years. Drawings by Michael Van den Abeele of the concerned works and exhibitions accompany the texts. In fiction or description,
they cover a variety of applied writing in the context of art and architecture. A substantial share of these texts can be allocated to the Etablissement d’en face exhibition space in Brussels, and a majority of the many cool cats in this book have roamed in the surroundings or the larger area thereof: Danai Anesiadou, Mirene Arsenios, Michel Auder, Abel Auer, Jos de Gruyter & Harald Thys, Daniel Dewar and Grégory Gicquel, Wim Goossens, Valentinas Klimasauskas, Steinar Haga Kristensen, Head Of Wantastiquet, Arnaud Hendrickx, Shelly Nadashi, OFFICE Kersten Geers David Van Severen, Jurgen Ots, Boris Rebetez, Timothy Stappaerts, Jennifer Teets, Richard Venlet, Peter Wächtler.
