Public art

Tuesday, December 8, 2009

Searching for the last time with my tags I found another tiny book. Without noticing it when I borowed it, I now see (looking for inspiration) that the introduction of this book is in fact written by Sandberg. Writer of the first book I picked. This one is not about his work but I did notice in the library that the introduction is in four different languages, like there were many different languages in my first book. This book is about some kind of exhibition in 1965 in the Vondelpark. I know it’s a weak link to the housewives but because this is such an accessible way of showing art to a lot of people, this exhibition is perhaps also visited by some jewelry-making-housewives.

An introduction to juwellery

Thursday, November 19, 2009

Looking for theft, tiny and supermarket, I came across this old book about jewels. It is indeed tiny. You can steel jewels (or this book, however it’s not interesting). And about the supermarket; I link supermarket to housewives and my impression of this book so far is that it’s kind of prudish and suitable for housewives in their midlifecrisis. I can see them joining in little groups making bracelets and collars; bitching about their husbands. Maybe twenty years from now I will borrow it again, just after moulding class didn’t turn out to be ‘my thing’.

(it’s not called “an introduction to juwellery” by the way, that’s just what it seems to be)
