Das Leben am Haverkamp
Book launch - Anouk van Klaveren i.s.m. Lilo Boerman
Das Leben am Haverkamp invites you to celebrate the launch of Anouk van Klaveren’s book! God-shaped holes, Magic Bullet placebo pills and priests in chalk white art spaces: in this layered piece of auto-fiction she analyzes the mysterious conditions under which objects acquire symbolic meaning. Establishing the genre of existentialist novella-masquerade, she introduces us to The Curious Collector, The Forbearing Charlatan, The Academic Plagiator, The Pretentious Artist and The Loving Mascot – all of them taking on a different artistic strategy in their search for meaning and magic.
The publication is written in the context of the master’s program F for Fact at the Sandberg Institute, from which she graduated this summer. In collaboration with graphic designer Lilo Boerman she releases 25 hand-made copies. During a one-night exhibition, they reveal this little piece of art.
About Das Leben am Haverkamp
Das Leben am Haverkamp is a collective formed by Christa van der Meer, Dewi Bekker, Gino Anthonisse and Anouk van Klaveren. Together they speak and discuss the current state of affairs of something we delightfully – but often problematically – call art. In their studio space – a former gallery space – the collective creates a platform for like-minded artists to explore their shared interests: transformation, costumes, daily rituals and alter egos.
