Hans Gremmen (1976) is a graphic designer and publisher at Fw:Books. He mainly collaborates with architects and photographers, whereby he is always searching for the limitations and meaning of the reproduced image. Besides this, he is involved in a long-term research project on the imaging of the American landscape. This has so far resulted in two books, a five-hour long film and an exhibition.

During this presentation Hans Gremmen will discuss the role of coincidence in his work. Coincidence at all levels: as inspiration; how an accidental email at the right moment affords research material for the next three years; but also how a forgotten appointment can lead to a solid design proposal.
