Archival research Jef Geys

In the spring of 2024, Wiels, Brussels, will host a retrospective exhibition of Jef Geys' work. In preparation for this retrospective exhibition, the curators (Dirk Snauwaert and Charlotte Friling) are working on an accompanying catalogue raisonné of Jef Geys' oeuvre. In the context of this research and in consultation with them, ArchiVolt is organizing a parallel event (symposium) with several lectures and talks on the work of Geys, and in particular his archival work and the various artists' books, editions and other printed works he produced. ArchiVolt researchers will collaborate on this with the Graphic Design Studio of the Royal Academy, as well as with lecturer and researcher Sofie Dederen, who has published several Xerox books with partial archives from the archive of Jef Geys and who is currently working on a research project concerning the oral history of Geys' work on the basis of interviews with friends who do not necessarily have anything to do with the art world.
