Dirk Slootmaekers (1962-2017) documented and re-arranged the body of work he made between 2013 and 2017 in two new books. At first small scale, printed and bound at home, as was his standard practice. Later, when the disease he suffered from became worse, Dirk wanted to make these documents more widely available. He supervised the whole layout and discussed the colour proofs. Dirk passed away a few days after his books were printed and bound.

Marc Schepers — De uitvinding van de wereld
In een rijk geïllustreerde tekst die het midden houdt tussen biografie, manifest, bronnenonderzoek en gedeconstrueerde catalogus loodst de auteur je mee doorheen een werkproces dat dertig jaar geëngageerd kunstenaarschap omspant.
