Naninga Lens
Letter from Fernand Auwera to Jan Emiel Daele, 15.10.1967

26.09  –  02.10

An expression of support from the Antwerp writer Fernand Auwera (1929-2015) to his colleague in Ghent Jan Emiel Daele (1942-1976), who was visited by the police as he wanted to publish a text by activist poet Herman J. Claeys called ‘De Penisgroet’ [The Penis Salute] in his taboo-breaking magazine daele.

The Letters Project

In 2022-2023, KIOSK together with the research group Ghent, playing field of the visual arts (1957-1987), will focus on letters from or to people from Ghent, or concerning the Ghent art scene. The letters are selected for their content, but also for their form.

For a whole year, the group will present a different letter every week in KIOSK, and will highlight its context or the questions it raises. During these presentations, the letter (or a facsimile) will be shown, possibly with other artefacts that are mentioned or that can clarify its meaning.

Ghent, playing field of the visual arts (1957-1987) consists of Naninga Lens, Sofie Frederix, Wouter De Vleeschouwer, Koen Brams and Godart Bakkers. For The Letters Project the group is reinforced by Simon Delobel and some guests.
