2017 Equitable Sharing payments by state.

The Department of the Treasury Equitable Sharing Program allows law enforcement agencies to contribute cash and assets to the Federal Treasury Forfeiture Fund. The primary purpose of the Treasury Forfeiture Fund is to administer federal auctions of these assets and distribute the proceeds from the auctions. Participating agencies receive up to 80% of the cash and the proceeds from the sale of assets they contribute. In states that restrict the forfeiture revenue directed to the seizing agency, police departments are incentivized to participate in the federal program.

The 2017 average revenue from sales proceeds from property seized and auctioned for each participating agency was $57,967. The 2017 average revenue from cash forfeiture for each participating agency was $71,959.

Through the widespread targeting of low-value assets, the Equitable Sharing Program generated a total of $84,283,266 in sales proceeds and $211,277,289 in cash seizures for police.

Mom, what is nature really? (invite) Bik van der Pol

Published by Kunstmuseen Krefeld, Krefeld, 2018, card (colour & b/w ill.), 11.5 × 21 cm, English

Price: €3

After exploring the museum’s collection and vast archive of history of exhibitions, books, leaflets, documents, newspaper clippings, and recorded speeches, this exhibition project by Bik Van der Pol presents a selection of more than 70 works from the collection of the Kunstmuseen Krefeld that address the landscape in art, industrialisation, climate change and the disappearance of nature. Departing from the Krefeld collection, Bik Van der Pol explore what shaped the 20th century and still shapes the present.

The title is taken from a review of the 1971 Haus-Rucker-Co exhibition in Haus Lange titled COVER. In the course of that show, Haus Lange was transformed into an artificial climate zone, at that time already calling attention to the growing problem of environmental pollution and its consequences for mankind.

Windstille Jochen Lempert

Published by More Publishers, Brussels, 2018, leporello (b/w ill.), 13.3 × 30 cm (unfolded 80 × 30 cm), English

Price: €250

Produced by More Publishers as part of Hors-série (# 126). Offset print on Olin Regular Absolute White 250 gsm. Signed and numbered edition of 40 (+ 10 a.p).

Jochen Lempert photographs the animal world in the most diverse contexts: from their natural habitat to the museum of natural history, from the zoo to the urban environment, in remote places or banal settings and situations. Lempert compiles his findings in a vast archive of images covering an ample spectrum, from common everyday views, to compositions that tend towards abstraction. This interest in the natural world as a subject has been further complemented by his exploration of the properties and materiality of the photographic image. Analogue, black and white, hand-printed in the darkroom, his photographs resist categorization and confront the canons of today’s aesthetic.
