Book launch


An Artist book titled 10.000 has been produced by Stijn Peeters to commemorate his solo show Eurpaeische Werte. 10.000 refers to the announcement made by Europol on 30 January 2016 that at least 10,000 unaccompanied child refugees have disappeared after arriving in Europe. The plight of unaccompanied child refugees has emerged as one of the most pressing issues in the migrant crisis. The drawings in the artist book 10.000 were made in preparation for the Chios-Idomeni 1824 -2016 painting.

This unique artist book is intended to create new links between the exhibited works, the large scale paintings, his etchings and lino-cuts and the material reality of the paper. This is reflected in the choice of images as well as the book’s layout and design. The concept is reinforced by the manual un-varnished Riso-print of the book: “….. So the prints in the book leave traces, as 10.000 children still are unaccounted for”, Stijn adds.
