Dennis Van Mol is finalizing his doctorate degree on the laborious breakthrough of expressionism, cubism and futurism in Flanders. Frothis research, he developed a fascination for the underexposed heritage of this cultural avant-garde to a number of young writers and artists who had their debut in the margin of the cultural field and translated the social and formal experiment to the turbulent context of the Great Depression. The celebrated author Michel de Ghelderode described them as the 'lost generation'.
During his stay at Frans Masereel Centrum, Dennis Van Mol researched this concept with a special interest in the work of graphic artist Jac Boonen.
The poster, of which the back side can be folded into a booklet, quotes a number of themes that inspired this lost generation: the trauma of the First World War, the social unrest during the Great Depression and the horro of the Second World War.
