The Frans Masereel Centrum started collaborating with Jef Geys in 2015, unlocking his work through a series of publications. Five such publications have been published to date, alongside a pre-publication.
In 2017, Jef Geys exhibited – in the M HKA – an archive installation about the role of media during the 1991 Gulf War. This resulted in the publication of ‘Archief 5’, alongside a concise pre-publication, the later including documents regarding the installation’s realization process and a preface written by Bart De Baere.
Johan Pas wrote a text about Jef Geys’ archive books, at the request of the Frans Masereel Centrum : “THE BOOK AS AN ARCHIVE, THE ARCHIVE AS A BOOK.” (You can download the full text here.)
