DE BOUWPUT / 29-30 OCT

The white cube is, within the contemporary art world, understood to be a space stripped of all its context, an empty container. Within these spaces, the exhibited artworks determine what the conversation will be about. But how this conversation develops will depend on all people involved in the exhibitions. From artistic directors, curators and artists to visitors. DE BOUWPUT gallery located in studio 74 of Broedplaats Bouw carries the not so subtle subtitle “Anarchy in a white cube.”

Artist Talk by Lula Valetta

Lula Valletta is a cut-up artist and bibliophile, stuck in purgatory. Desperate of being born about 75 years too late, she tries to pick up where the hobbyhorses of the avant-garde left off; rejecting the logic, reason and aestheticism of modern capitalist society, instead expressing nonsense, irrationality and anti-bourgeois protest. She has been cutting and pasting since kindergarten. At the age of 18, she wandered to Berlin for the sake of art, only to return 8 years later, poor aber sexy after years of being a GlueHead. Together with underdog poet Mr. Pelham she forms the cut-up collective Arpsianism. She gave the world the C.U.M. (Cut-Up Manifesto) and strongly believes that collage is the basis of all art and creation. Specimens of her collage art have been self-published in a series of booklets; an agglomeration of collages into blobs and misprints.

Artist Talk by Paul John

On John's website you see: abstract photography, using film, shot in multiple locations. Often times, john shoots a roll, tucks it away, and shoots over it months, years, later. He never take notes on the contents of the roll. Most of the work is multiple exposure and addresses themes of looking-up, day dreaming, and thinking. All works are uniquely adapted in a narrative style, either in a book format, or a series of printed images.
Paul has been active in the independent publishing and artbook world since 2013, and co-founded endless editions, which is a publishing and curatorial project as a part of his artistic practice. Some books are in the collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in the Thomas J. Watson Library, the Museum of Modern Art Library, and many other institutions around the globe.

Artist Talk by Aafke Mertens of Riso Pop

In 2018 Aafke did her first risograph workshop and got hooked to the technique. Her love for comics, zines and prints found a new dimension. So in 2019 she became the owner of a refurbished MZ-770 RISO printer. She wishes to share this amazing printing technique with others, through printed products, workshops and a welcoming space.
For the month of October, Riso Pop is organizing a variety of workshops leading up to the PAPERBOUND Zine festival. From easy introduction to riso printing, to a 4 week course, there is something for everyone! We’ll be producing an Artist's Book available for purchase during the weekend of the fair.
