EXHIBITION CATALOGUES

On occasion of many exhibitions which Guy Schraenen curated in his Galerie Kontakt, in his Archive Space and for numerous international institutions, catalogues were produced. They are edited and designed by Guy Schraenen and include essays by him on the particular subjects and types of artists' publications as well as on the socio-political, economical and cultural context. For orders of available catalogues ask the museums or go to CONTACT or ORDER. Some information can also be found in this CATALOGUE.
