Narrated walk with Wim Cuyvers

Wim Cuyvers will be reading from his latest book 'L'Autre', a collection of 12 short stories (in Dutch)

date: 27.09.2020

Forestier, writer and former architect Wim Cuyvers has collaborated with the Frans Masereel Centrum within the affiliated artist program since the beginning of 2020. A first result of this collaboration, which will spread over a few years, is the collection of short stories ‘L’Autre’. Cuyvers brings together 9 previously published short stories with 3 brand new texts and a sharp-witted reading guide.

Narrated walk

‘L’Autre’ will be officially launched on September 27, 2020 with a series of narrated walks in and around the Frans Masereel Centrum site: for twelve hours, Wim Cuyvers will take several groups of maximum 12 participants per group on a walk every hour and he will read them one of his short stories.

Each paying participant will receive a copy of his book after the walk and will also receive a consumption. When the weather doesn’t allow a walk outside it will take place in the new pavilion of the Frans Masereel Centrum. Registration is compulsory through the link mentioned above.

Date: Sunday, September 27, 2020
Start: 9 am (last group starts at 8 pm)
Language: Dutch
Entrance fee: 12 Euro (+12 years) / 0 Euro (-12 years)

12 short stories

‘L’Autre’ does not present a ‘break-up’ for Wim Cuyvers with his earlier occupation: it is a different way of talking about public space as a place to meet each other. The title also refers, among other things, to another recurring theme in the stories: the topic of ‘social discomfort’.

The 12 texts that make up ‘L’Autre’ were written over a period of fifteen years and can be read as stories that span a lifetime. They were purposefully not bundled in chronological order: the short stories attract each other and meld into their final shape, as one book.

Wim Cuyvers has spent the last decennia working as an architect and lecturer, publishing essayish texts. Within the field of visual art he realized numerous artistic interventions and organized walks as urban research. For the past ten years, Cuyvers has been “building” in the Jura Le Montavoi-x/es, a refuge for people in need.

You can purchase the publication in our bookshop.
