“45 contemporary European architects were given the task to design a fictional building expansion in line with the principles of the existing building. A relevant question in an era when architecture increasingly seems to occur without the context being taken into account. The result is a collection of dialogues between contemporary architects and the past. This book is a collection of different ideas and designs that play with the coincidences and chaos you can find in a city. In cooperation with Veldwerk Architecten; Marius Grootveld and Jantje Engels).


The 6th city poem of Maarten Inghels became a public inquiry on copy paper. The 35 questions were drafted in verses in which the reader could formulate a response to send back to the poet.


’10 Stories of a Journey’ is a documentary, a reflection and an elaboration on the visual practices of five artists selected for the first edition of STRT Kit, an international development platform for young visual artists. The book reflects the dynamic that occurred during this year, the encounters, experiences, memories and influences that contributed to the artists’ evolution. In cooperation with Steven Holsbeeks.


The walking exhibition Outdoor Hiking with Sound & other Fireworks guides you through three adjacent parks in Antwerp; Den Brandt, Middelheim and Vogelenzang. There’s nothing to see. More than 30 artists are invited to create an experimental audio work that may or may not react to the relationship between artistic creation and nature, sound and historical environment. (

Evil Eye is the result of a residency in the Frans Masereel Centrum in Kasterlee. During this residency we printed optical audio-records. We created visual patterns and screen printed them on heavy paper. Afterwards we handed them out in bars and at the local market in Kasterlee. On the last day of our residency at the Frans Masereel Centrum, we did a short performance in which locals were invited to play the records we created on our self made optical record players. In cooperation with Indianen.

Post Perspective is a book that still has to be finished. The book contains ideas and references of Marius Grootveld. It is sort of a closure of the series of lectures he gave a few years ago.


The signage for Frans Masereel Centrum in Kasterlee became an analog screen of words on a fixed spot like a type case. At first sight these elements seem as if they are in an unreadable order, but when they are lit separately, the information becomes readable. In cooperation with Tim Knapen.

For three years Siska Vandecasteele followed Johnny. A carnival employee, all his life. Johnny gives the photographer an insight in the otherwise closed world of the carnival life. He opens the doors of his house and caravan for her. He alternately puts her on the wrong foot, and makes her think. This book is about Johnny, a typical atypical carnival man (Forain). With pictures and words Siska Vandecasteele takes you into a world that is disappearing. A world, that seems very different but is not that different from the visitors world, the “Kaffers and Boerinnen”.


New Comfort Zones and a new visual identity for MORPHO ( In cooperation with Steven Holsbeeks.
