This year we proudly receive the second edition of The Other Book, the artists’ book fair with over 60 independent book makers alongside HOK and the Grafische Werkplaats Den Haag.
Fri 27 May 19.00-23.00 Opening Hoogtij Sat 28 May 13.00-19.00 Exhibition Sun 29 May 13.00-19.00 Exhibition followed by after party
The second edition of The Other Book, from May 27 to 29, is 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 provides 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.
After Party Sunday, May 29, 20:30: performances by Jezus Cinco, Strict Nurse and Gökay Atabek, from Vølksamt!. Read more >
Exhibition and book release of Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland newly illustrated by The Hague artists. From Friday 20th to Sunday 22nd, August 2021.
With: Annemarie Slobbe, Marjolijn van der Meij, Cedric ter Bals, Bernice Nauta, Malou Cohen, Jordan Herregraven, Angelika Hasse, Paul de Jong, Leonie Schneider, Niels Janssen, Melle de Boer and Lula Valletta
The 12 chapters of Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland (originally titled Alice’s Adventures Under Ground) were distributed among twelve Hague-based artists, who each interpreted their chapter in their own unique ways. The works in the book are the base for the accompanying group exhibition in which the works become installations and interactive pieces. Artist and creative entrepreneur Lula Valletta curated the project.
Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland is for many a first re-encounter with surrealism after losing one’s child’s imagination. Many famous artists have taken it upon themselves to illustrate Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.
Opening Friday, September 20th, from 19:00 with gong performance by Red Dwarf, music by Carlos Gomes and DJ Fester del Hagua
