Just a Position

'Just a position' is an educational experiment in which students from the American School of The Hague (ASH) were guided in their artistic process by artists Gino Anthonisse, Verena Blok and Jaya Pelupessy.

In collaboration with ASH, Nest developed an education programme in which students are guided by professional artists in their artistic process. The students are challenged to further develop their visual work and to take a first step towards professionalisation. In a six-month trajectory, the three artists guided the students on a monthly basis, gave constructive feedback and prepared them for their first exhibition outside the school walls.

'Just a position' is a one-day exhibition to which we invite you wholeheartedly.

Participating students:
Alex, William, Noya, Jennifer, Melisa, Kelsey, Jimin, Ewan, Christina, Lucia, Sophia, Kim, Felice, Jenny, Fé

Artist: Kim Hospers
Vernissage ‘Esse Est Percipi #Whatever’

In the exhibition Kim Hospers (1982) presents his complete 'Esse Est Percipi #Whatever' series, which consists of 12 x 12 small format color pencil drawings. They depict photos of pranks that he finds on the internet: people that have fallen asleep because of drukenness or tiredness whose faces have been painted or written upon, by family or friends to redicule them. Kim hospers interpretets this phenomenon in a postive way: in their riduculouness they are all equal and hence equally 'worthy'. Typical is the craftmanship and meticulous rendering of details used in the drawings that contrasts with the volatile and randomness of the photos on social media.

Dongyoung Lee’s Publication Launch

Page Not Found is delighted to invite you to the launch of <English>, Lee's latest publication in collaboration with Martin La Roche and Martijn in 't Veld. "I grew up in a non-roman alphabet culture and will probably never touch the heart of my second acquisition language, ´English´, the language I speak since I came to Europe. My condition of living in a second language environment makes me approach topics often more from naivety than that they form an articulated consciousness. I try to see language without preknowledge and prejudice: this is what I call ´naivety on language´."

Dongyoung Lee uses graphic design to create autonomous forms. She holds MA in Communication design in 2008 at Hongik University (Seoul, KR). She participated to the Jan van Eyck academy (Maastricht, NL) between 2013 and 2014 and the Frans Masereel Centrum (Kasterlee, BE) in 2016. Her works and books are exhibited at WorkSpaceBrussels, Kaai Studio (Bruxelles, BE), Tafels: Flemish-Dutch presentation of artist books at Art Brussels and Art Rotterdam, and Fons Welters (Amsterdam, NL).
