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.
