One of the founders of Happening News, Dr. Hugo Heyrman, tells us about the creation of these “visual Happenings”. The translation of a work exhibited to an edited work presents major challenges. Jerome Dupeyrat reflects on these two modes of diffusion and expression of art, and the relationships that they maintain together. In place of preface, two artists talk with the director of the Kandinsky Library, Pierre Leguillon, about his report to research, archives and books. Investigation of the different personalities of the artist Philippe Thomas, hidden throughout his editorial and artistic production. Lou Marin criticises the anarchism pro-armed struggle through the history of two protesting Berlin newspapers of the 1970s. At the border of the artist’s object or multiple, Océane Delleaux analyses those editions that require a particular action to come to life. Sébastien Hayez looks at the history of one of the most legendary Swiss publishing houses, ABC Verlag, an influential piece of graphic design in modern times. Stéphanie Rivoire – Graphic designer, model maker, typographer, artist. Selection of particular books by members of the Kandinsky Library team.
