Voorpublicatie 'Archief 5'
- Print run
- 400 (unnumbered)
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 not only in the publication of Archief 5, but also a concise pre-publication, 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.)
