This book is the outcome of a project initiated by artist Roel Kerkhofs, produced together with graphic design studio Dear Reader, (Eva Moulaert and Marie Sledsens) and writer Tina Ameel. It began in August 2014 as a residency in a neighbourhood in Brussels; a temporary museum in a specific area, where the homes were seen as archives and the residents as museum archivists. The project is very much inspired by the ‘Imaginary Museum’ of André Malraux. Filled with intriguing objects, it serves as a visual production platform where images from the private space receive renewed attention, and which aims to seek out the current value of the visible image in this context.
