There are still spaces available for the Children’s workshop at Wiels during PA/PER VIEW on Saturday 2nd April 2011. Reinventing the artists book with Michel Francois, Kendell Geers, Katerina Gregos, Gabriel Kuri, Els Opsomer

The basic idea is that fifteen given artists/writers/individuals who have made a book will take one of their existing books as a starting point for the recreation of another. The bookmakers/authors will decide how to engage with 4-5 children aged 6-10 years of age, in order to transform and rethink a publication into one of their own. This process might involve tearing it apart, painting or writing over it, mixing it with another publication, shuffling the order of pages, etc. It is entirely up to the author to reflect upon the modus to follow in order to recreate his/her publication. The children will then take this remade book home as a “reward”.
