Letter from Koen Vos to the press, 30.09.1985

16.09  –  24.09

On September 30, 1985, Koen Vos - who, together with Chris Van Eetvelt and Chris Vanbeveren, is one of the three members of the Ghent artist collective Kleenex - sends a press release to announce the end of the young collective. The new episode of the letters project in KIOSK returns to Kleenex's short but exciting artistic adventure.

Thanks to Chris Vanbeveren, Koen Vos, Roger D’Hondt, Sara Plantefève-Castryck, Lukas De Ryck, Valerie Verhack en 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.
