Join us in our bookshop and garden for a conversation between two designers and publishers who have each become a key presence in the world of art book publishing.
Dutch designer, curator and publisher Peter Foolen began his life in publishing in the 1980s. Since 2007 he has worked as an independent designer and publisher under the name Peter Foolen Editions, working closely with contemporary artists such as herman de vries, Roger Ackling, Alan Charlton, Laurie Clark & Thomas A Clark, Ian Hamilton Finlay, Lesley Foxcroft, Hamish Fulton, Callum Innes, Peter Liversidge, Richard Long, Carol Robertson, Trevor Sutton, Ian Whittlesea and Nono Reinhold, to realise and publish works across various formats such as books, objects, prints and portfolios.
Sara De Bondt is a graphic designer, teacher, and publisher. Since 2002, she has designed books and projects for artists and cultural institutions such as Franz Erhard Walther, Mark Leckey, Rachel Rose, Rosalind Nashashibi, Tate, WIELS, Liverpool Biennial, Camden Arts Centre, Guggenheim, Barbican and many more. In 2008, she founded non-profit publishing house Occasional Papers together with Antony Hudek, and since then has edited a number of its books, including The Form of the Book Book, Graphic Design: History in the Writing (1983–2011) and Off the Grid: Histories of Belgian graphic design.
A wide selection of titles from Peter Foolen Editions and Occasional papers will be on display and available for sale.
