04.11.2020 | Book launch – POSTPONED
Due to the yesterday’s updates to the current social distancing regulations, we have had to postpone our book launch to a later date. We will confirm this new date as soon as is possible, though naturally it will not be for some weeks.
Nevertheless, the book is already available for purchase! You can contact Karin at Print Room to order a copy at info@PrintRoom.org. In the next week the book will also be available from our web shop.
07.11.2020 | 15 03 20 – Book launch & Towards a Foreword – Finissage
We are delighted to finally announce the launch of our first publication 15 03 20, published by Rotterdam’s Print Room! This limited edition, riso-printed booklet reflects on the notion of the ‘haptic encounter’ — a subject that, these days, seems both extremely relevant yet ever more alien. It includes six artist spreads by Kees van Leeuwen, Hannah Dawn Henderson, Tomasz Skibick, Elena Kostenko, Grigoris Rizakis, and Karolina Rupp, as well as essays by Yindi Chen and Alexandre Richardeau.
Creating 15 03 20 has truly been a labor of love: its contents was developed whilst we were experiencing the first ‘lockdown’ in different countries — The Netherlands, France, Germany and the UK. It was designed by Hannah Dawn Henderson and Cengiz Mengüç, and each of the 200 copies were assembled, hand-cut and stapled by Hannah Dawn, Karolina and Jip Piet over two afternoons in Rotterdam.
The launch will take place on Saturday 7th November at the Leeszaal in Rotterdam West, from 17:00 – 18:00. Registration is required and places are limited! If you would like to attend, please be sure to reserve a place with Karin at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you can’t make the launch but you’d still like to buy a copy (€10 exc. shipping), please send an email to either Karin. It will be available for purchase in Print Room’s bookstore and, later in the month, on NOH’s webshop and in the bookshop of Kunstcentrum Stroom in Den Haag.
Saturday is also the last chance to see Towards a Foreword, which is on show at the Art Bar, directly opposite the Leeszaal. It will be open from 13:00 – 18:00
11.10.2020 | Towards a Foreword – Opening
You are warmly invited to join us at the opening of Towards a Foreword, a pop-up exhibition developed in collaboration with Print Room, presented at the ART BAR on Rijnhoutplein in Rotterdam West, just opposite the Leeszaal. The exhibition features works by Hannah Dawn Henderson, Kees van Leeuwen, Elena Kostenko, Karolina Rupp and Tomasz Skibicki. These works use sculptural, allegorical, literary and research-orientated methods to examine notions of touch, inscription, connectedness, memory and memorialisation, and spatiality.
The opening will take place on Sunday 11th October, from 13:00 to 17:00, as part of Art Central Rotterdam. It is not necessary to pre-book a timesloh, but due to the current regulations only four people can enter the space at one given moment. Please be patient if you have to wait — in the meantime you can check out Print Room just around the corner on Schietbaanstraat!
26.05.2020 | Making Progress
These past couple of weeks we have been busy reviewing paper options for our forthcoming publication, the origins of which you can read about on the page Who Are We? Due to the current restrictions on travel and physical distancing regulations, we find ourselves scattered in not only different cities but in different countries. Nevertheless, from our respective, newly-designated home-offices in England, Germany, the Netherlands and France, we’re still making progress — simply at an adjusted rhythm, one that insists on patience and relies just as much on Skype call as it does snail mail.
