To celebrate 40 years of Vrijzinnig Centrum Geuzenhuis Gent, Topo Copy teamed up with HOUTD & KapOw to make RISOGRAFIA #3. A new series of risograph prints with designs from 40 international artists. Each print was pulled through their beloved Risograph duplicator twice. There are 40 handmade frames by HOUTD, each containing the entire set of prints. The system allows you to change the front print.
The title of this series, “March to the beat of a different drummer,” is taken from Henry David Thoreau, an American author, poet, philosopher, polymath, abolitionist, naturalist, tax resister, development critic, surveyor, historian, and leading transcendentalist. To do things in one’s own way regardless of societal norms and conventional expectations.
The series includes work of artists who mainly work and live in Belgium, Venezuela and Congo. Topo Copy co-founder Daniel who nowadays resides in his home country engaged Venezuelan artists and our friends from Kapow organised a 2 day workshop in Kinshasa in collaboration with Collectif sadi to engage artists from Académie des Beaux-Arts in Kinshasa. As Topo Copy has it’s home base in Ghent (BE), we made sure that the Belgian artists are well represented.
