Master Art History & Media Philosophy
This thesis is one of the first comprehensive art historical studies on the artist and art teacher Jef Geys (1934-2018), a protagonist of the Belgian neo-avant-garde. Her research focuses on his Kempens Informatieblad, a newspaper published by Geys between 1971 and 2018, which he used to distribute information as well as document and discuss his unbounded art practice. It is based on several years of intensive archival and material research as well as two exhibitions curated in dialogue with the artist and his estate, respectively, on the subject.
