While Kasper König (°1943) is busy with the preparations for Skulptur Projekte 1987, the second edition of the ten-year project with sculptures in public space in Münster, the German exhibition maker writes a letter to his young Belgian colleague Bart Cassiman (°1961) regarding the participation of the Belgian artists Thierry De Cordier (°1954).
Thanks to Bart Cassima, Godart Bakkers, Valerie Verhack and Koen Brams.
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.
