Since 2015, CRAP (Collection for Research on Artists' Publications) has formed the backbone of my research and teaching activities. This study collection contains printed matter (catalogues, invitations, posters, artists' books, magazines, zines, ephemera) of visual artists, realized between ca. 1888 and today. The early avant-gardes are represented by original editions and facsimile reprints, but the emphasis is on the neo-avant-garde, conceptual and postmodern movements from after the Second World War. The collection documents and illustrates how artists combine creation and communication, research and practice, to create compact and effective publications. At the same time, the printed matter represents the various international networks. The material is used for lessons, lectures, essays and books, exhibitions or loans. This gradually created a network of (international) institutions, researchers, collectors, curators, librarians and antiquarians who are dedicated to this relatively unexplored field. Young artists and designers often show a great interest in this seldom-seen material. In this project, I want to further disclose the material of CRAP in a relevant way and investigate how, where and when this can best be done. By means of pop-up exhibitions, for example, the original printed matter can be linked to a current issue and thus incite information, interaction and inspiration. Digital access or access via a series of publications are also possible.
