De Stijl, Nr. 9, 1924/25, Boekie Woekie drawing by Jan Voss
From De Stijl to Boekie Woekie. Artists' publications from the Netherlands
Exhibition at the Centre for Artists' Publications
The exhibition covers more than one hundred years of art from the Netherlands. It starts with the De Stijl movement from the beginning of the twentieth century, along with the same-named periodical of Theo van Doesburg, which was dedicated to the renewal not only of art, but also of architecture, design, typography, and poetry. The concluding focus is on Boekie Woekie – bookstore run by artists and publishers Jan Voss, Henriette van Egten and Rúna Thorkelsdóttir in Amsterdam – which can already be considered to be legendary. The majority of the exhibited works are part of the Brokken Zijp Foundation of Art (BFA).
