The Adventures Of Willem De Ridder
Promoter of avant-garde theatre, Fluxus agent, founder of an art mail order house, publisher of taboo-breaking magazines, producer of controversial Radio Art programmes, and much more, Willem de Ridder has led a storied life. It seems that the moment he became successful with whatever he was doing, he would abandon it entirely to embark on some other project. In producing this biography, Harry Ruhé and Jeannette Dekeukeleire went back to the source – De Ridder’s old house in his hometown – and sifted through dozens of folders, clippings, dusty boxes, and attic treasures. The result is a book full of pictures, where texts should be interpreted as extensive captions.
