Monumental Riso

Monumental Riso presents newly made works at the Charles Nypels Lab for Printing & Publishing by twelve selected artists. Tasked with the challenge to venture beyond the unique formalist qualities of risography as a technique, this collection of works poses questions to the aesthetic qualities, formal histories, cultural contexts and current significance of risography.

The curatorial approach pays reference to Adrian Forty’s and Susanne Küchler’s book The Art of Forgetting, which has provided a framework to extend existing and alternative notions of the monument/al – the central theme of this year’s Magical Riso biennial – and in particular what this could mean for risography.

With work by: Dan Walsh (VS), Johannes Schwartz (DE/NL), Kees Goudzwaard (NL, Martín La Roche (CL), Michiel Schuurman (NL), Paul Drissen (NL), Raewyn Martyn (NZ), Sigrid Calon (NL), Stanley Donwood (GB), Zoe Beloff (VS), Zohra Opoku (GH)

Curators: Huib Haye van der Werf, Jo Frenken and the In-Lab The Art of Forgetting

Printers: Erwin Blok, Jo Frenken, Margriet Thissen

This exhibition is organized on the occasion of the Third Magical Riso Biennial, 16-18 November 2018. And is open during the Magical Art Book Fair on Sunday 18th of November

18 November 2018 – 11 January 2019
