Flemish-Dutch presentation of art(ists’) books at Art Rotterdam and Art Brussels
In 2015, 20 years of the Flanders-Holland Cultural Alliance is being celebrated. In the context of this anniversary, during the Art Rotterdam and the Art Brussels ‘Tafels’, the Mondriaan Fonds and Flanders Arts Institute are organising a presentation of 80 artists’ books and special art books from Holland and Flanders. The selection of the books being shown is made by Maaike Lauwaert (curator, art critic) and Luc Derycke (designer, publisher). The books are presented on a table that was designed by Hendrik-Jan Hunneman.
During Art Rotterdam (5-8 February 2015), the presentation is to be seen in the former distribution centre of the Van Nelle Fabriek, with the ‘Prospects & Concepts’ exhibition.
On the occasion of this presentation, the curators Maaike Lauwaert and Luc Derycke have invited six speakers for Thursday, 5 February, from 13:45 to 14:45 in the CitizenM-Lounge of the Van Nellefabriek to produce a statement on the importance of artists’ books and on the circumstances in which they are created. Among others: Lorenzo Benedetti (De Appel), Koen Brams (curator and writer), Nico Dockx(artist), Wilfried Huet (Publisher: Gagarin), Samuel Saelemakers (Curator: Witte de With) and Esther de Vries (designer).
