Upcoming: The Other Book Fair May 27-29

The second edition of The Other Book (May 27-29 2022) will be devoted to the underground: artists’ books and other printed matter ephemera of the counterculture; from the past and from the present. The exhibition opens in the occasion of Hoogtij #69, the Contemporary Art Tour of The Hague.

The Other Book will provide a platform for artists, publishers, print rooms, collectives, art libraries, collectors, and book enthusiasts from all secret corners of the world. Come and browse through a collection of underground artists’ books and artistic publications beyond your wildest imagination!

By creating a stage for both local and international artists and underground publishers, The Other Book serves as a place of exchange. The extensive program explores artistic practices, conceptual publications, and the seemingly endless possibilities of the self- or independently published artist’s book and artistic publications.

Hoogtij #68 ‘OPEN’

On Friday, March 4th, in the occasion of Hoogtij #68, we will function as open studio, with works, fragments, processes, music by artists from Quartair and guests.

This will be an experimental place for works in progress or works that were never shown before. One wall will be reserved for an interactive action: visitors are invited to add drawings or statements with glow-in-the-dark painting. The results will be seen and experienced at the end of the evening.

With Sophia Boeschoten, Mekhlla Harrison, Zuza Zgierska, Louis Braddock Clarke, Blanka de Bruyne, Marlies Adriaanse, Thom Vink, Jessy Rahman, Dana LaMonda, Jessica de Wolf, Wieteke Heldens, Astrid Nobel, Geeske Harting, Pietertje van Splunter, Harold de Bree and Mike Rijnierse.

Non Linear Narrative Tech Week 2022

How to bridge the digital realm with the physical experience? Rather than visualizing data on the screen, in this Tech Week we focused on interpreting information, social trends and ecological phenomena as alternative adventures, including visual, audible, olfactory and even gustative experience.

Having the internet as (real-time) input, six projects were conceived, designed and coded, translating bytes into dynamic installations and performative (inter)actions.

The Tech Week 2022 was hosted by Rob Bothof, Mike Rijnierse and Ludmila Rodrigues at Quartair, as an immersive and experimental workshop for the Non Linear Narrative masters of the Royal Academy of Art (KABK), between February 7th and 11th, 2022.

Participants: Lisette Alberti, Coco Maier, Kateryna Gaidamaka, Paul Mielke; Shouyi He, Julija Panova, Alicja Konkol; Eszter Nagy, Karolina Uskakovych, Daan Veerman; Lode Dijkers & Daniel Gremme; Leonie Gores & Camille Noray; Niels Otterman, Akina López, Jeroen van den Bogaert.
