Six impossible things before breakfast
How do you make a book about a period that is behind you? The publication Six impossible things before breakfast is a journey across twenty-five years of Verzameld Werk [Collected Work] and beyond. Verzameld Werk was an open house in the heart of Ghent. A playground for designers and guests, architects and artists. Tailor-made by thinkers and doers. It was founded in 1991, with Ingrid De Coster as one of its founders.
For this book, Ingrid De Coster collaborated with Loes Verstappen and Bas Schevers. Their point of departure, the motley collection of images from in and around Verzameld Werk, spread out on a table. Bruno De Wachter was invited to respond to the newly formed configurations and he did so with a prose poem. Along these lines, Verzameld Werk rewrote and continues to rewrite itself through the gaze of the other. Leaf by leaf.
