Dispersions - The Photo Books by Toon Teeken
A selection of more than 80 unique handmade photo books by artist Toon Teeken on display.
For more than 40 years artist Toon Teeken has been working on his photo books. In 1969 he composed the first spread of what would become more than 4000 spreads measuring 34,5 x 55 cm, joined in more than 80 handmade volumes.
Photographs, often made by the artist, form the leitmotif. Through the series the photographs are gradually complemented by drawings, newspaper clippings, handwritten text and cut outs, making the compositions more layered and complex.
From 2013, a series of 8 books with a selection of spreads from the 80 photo books will be published by Publisher Huis Clos and Johan Deumes gallery. Book design is by Piet Gerards. You can subscribe to these limited editions by filling in a form available at the exhibition, where a large number of the original photo books will be on display.

Open on 24/25 November and 1/2 December, 14:00-18.00h.
Finissage Sunday 2 December 2012, 15.00h. A lecture by Toon Teeken (Dutch).
