- Speaker: Esther de Vries

Esther de Vries (1974) specialises in bookdesign, preferably in close collaboration with artists, designers, curators and publishers. Through her meticulous working method, which consists of constantly reviewing and questioning the project at hand, she presents its content in a way that reinforces its diversity and richness, rather than simplifying it. She shares a design studio with Richard Niessen (1972). They complement each other as individual designers and work together as a team on some of their projects.
On June 4th Esther will focus on how she translates text and images into physical printwork by showing books she designed, and the series 1:1:1. Initiated by Niessen & de Vries, 1:1:1 is a documentary series in print about the work of artist and designers, in order to investigate graphic design and printing as a form of expression. Jos Morree Fine Books (production), Mart.Spruijt (printer) and Sebastiaan Hanekroot (Colour & Books, lithography) teamed up to complete the 7 issues that have been released so far.
The lecture will be in English. Registration for the event is not required. Afterwards you can join us for dinner at Studio/K (at your own costs). Looking forward to seeing you on June the 4th.
The activities program of De Monsterkamer is supported by Creative Industries Fund NL.
