    Open Letters: Paul Maheke, The Year I Stopped Making Art

    We are delighted to unveil Paul Maheke’s work ‘The Year I Stopped Making Art’, installed in our front window for the duration of a month. 

    Paul Maheke’s short essay ‘The year I stopped making art. Why the art world should assist artists beyond representation; in solidarity.’, published on the 18th of March 2020, is an outcry for solidarity in the art world during the pandemic and beyond. In the essay Maheke channels voices of urgency from precarious figures who practice their art without structural support, ranging from the witch to the single parent to those struggling with mental health issues.

    Paul Maheke (1985, Brive-la-Gaillarde, France) is an artist and performer based in London, whose work explores tensions between hyper-visibility and invisibility and between presence and absence. He is interested in the ways in which history, memory and identity are formed and stored in the body as an archive, and develops new and ‘personal’ understandings of the present and the past. 

    Paul Maheke’s short essay inspired our upcoming open call project ‘Open Letters’, which we will be launching soon. Messages of urgency and vulnerability will be published through Open Letters, occupying our storefront window in vinyl lettering. Open Letters gives artists room to publicly reflect on current times, despite widespread covid restrictions and the lockdown of art spaces. 

    To view Paul Maheke’s work no reservation is needed, as it is visible from the street – pass by whenever you want!

    Page of Possibilities: Gratis Workshops voor Kinderen

    Stichting Page Not Found nodigt je uit om mee te doen aan de eerste PAGE OF POSSIBILITIES workshop! Ontdek de kleurrijke, creatieve wereld van boeken gemaakt door kunstenaars en leer hoe je je eigen kleine publicatie kunt maken!

    Vanaf 2021 organiseert Page Not Found een reeks creatieve workshops genaamd ‘Page of Possibilities’ waarin kinderen (4-12 jaar) leren hoe je zelf een boek kunt maken. De workshops zijn gratis, tweetalig (Engels en Nederlands) en vinden elke tweede zondag van de maand plaats in onze projectruimte aan de Boekhorststraat 128 in Den Haag. De knutsel sessies worden geleid door een kunstenaar en kunstdocent met een uitgebreide ervaring in educatieve projecten, en daarnaast worden er regelmatig gastkunstenaars uitgenodigd om bij te dragen. De workshops combineren kinderspel met kunst en druktechniek en stimuleren creatieve ontmoeting en samenwerking door middel van doe-het-zelfpublicaties. ‘Page of Possibilities’ is geïnspireerd door de pedagogie van Célestin Freinet, die in 1947 de l’École Moderne (De Moderne School) oprichtte in Frankrijk. In zijn moderne scholen lag de nadruk op leren gestuurd door kinderen: er werd een drukpers midden in de school geplaatst en kinderen deelden hun ervaringen en inzichten via zelfgemaakte boeken en pamfletten.

    De workshopreeks gaat van start zodra de huidige beperkingen zijn opgeheven en we weer met een kleine groep kunnen samenkomen! Om alvast een plaats te reserveren en je aan te melden voor de eerste vijf workshopsessies, kan je schrijven naar info@page-not-found.nl.

    Cultuurschakel agenda

🔄 Dear all, it can be hard to know where we’re heading these days...

🔀 Page Not Found and the Master Experimental Publishing (XPUB) at the Piet Zwart Institute, are delighted to invite you to the launch of their Special Issue #14, entitled “I Don’t Know Where We’re Going, But — A Local Network City Quest”.

👣 Reserve your free slot ➡️ link in bio!

↪️ The Situationist Times was a magazine edited and published by the Dutch artist @jacqueline_dejong in the sixties. With only six issues, the Times became one of the most exciting and playful magazines of that decade, thanks to its multilingual, transdisciplinary, and cross-cultural exuberance. The never-realised seventh issue, destined to explore the game of Pinball and its female player, is the starting point of our collaboration with XPUB and artist Lídia Pereira. During the course of this semester, the first year Master students were tasked with imagining what the seventh issue could be if it were produced today. You can discover their works by finding the hotspots they installed throughout The Hague. You are invited to start your psychogeographical exploration of this distributed publication at Page Not Found, on Friday 2 April, from 12:00.

↩️ Time slots of 15 minutes are available for the start of the quest at Page Not Found, after which you can continue to roam through The Hague for as long as you like until 18:00.

⤵️ This Special Issue was created by Kendal Beynon, Martin Foucaut, Camilo García A., Clara Gradel, Nami Kim, Euna Lee, Jacopo Lega, Federico Poni, Louisa Teichmann, and Floor van Meeuwen.

⬆️ We wholeheartedly thank Jacqueline de Jong for her kind interest and support in this collaboration.
