“How Would You Like to Get Lampooned, My Lord?” — Book launch by the Master Non Linear Narrative

Together with the Master Non Linear Narrative at the Royal Academy of Art, The Hague, we welcome you to the launch of “How Would You Like to Get Lampooned, My Lord?”, a new publication composed by the students of the department.

The Master Non Linear Narrative merges investigative methods of journalism and forensics with computer technologies and visual arts. These disciplines come together in a progressive approach of graphic design, with a focus on creating non-linear stories.

Each year, a small group of master’s students undertake field research in collaboration with external partners, which are mainly governmental and non-governmental organisations. From January to July 2022, the department collaborated with KB, the National Library of the Netherlands in The Hague, to scrutinise the book as a publishing platform and create new, compelling narratives that link the alba amicorum (friendship books) to immediate issues affecting us today. “How Would You Like to Get Lampooned, My Lord?” is the publication resulting from this year’s collaboration with the KB. 

The publication is composed by MA students Lisette Alberti, Lode Dijkers, Leonie Gores, Daniel Gremme, Shouyi He, Alicja Konkol, Eszter Nagy, Camille de Noray, Julija Panova, and Karolina Uskakovych, and supervised by Linda van Deursen (MA Non Linear Narrative), Mijke van der Drift (MA Non Linear Narrative), Rianne Koning (KB, National Library of the Netherlands), Katrin Korfmann (MA Non Linear Narrative), Niels Schrader (MA Non Linear Narrative), and Jeroen Vandommele (KB, National Library of the Netherlands).

Starts at 18:00.
