20 03 2024 19:00 20:00

Art historian Moritz Nebenführ delivers a primer on the Kempens Informatieblad, a newspaper published by Jef Geys beginning in 1971 as an alternative to conventional exhibition catalogues. Tracing Jef Geys’ practice and concerns through the printed page, he presents close readings from some of the paper’s over 50 issues spanning nearly five decades to discuss the artist's strategies of self-archivisation, engagement and withdrawal.
