From February 4 until 27 May 2012 the Museum Het Valkhof will hold an exhibition of Dutch artist Ben Joosten - ‘Naar de letter – prenten in oekdruk’ (To the letter - letterpress prints).
The museum will display a selection of typographic prints as well as the documentary film ‘Naar de letter’ (To the letter) by Hanne van der Woude. I couldn't find info about of this documentary (or trailer) but found some 'making of' pictures and I'm curious about this documentary.
Throughout his artistic career, while initially being a sculptor, Ben Joosten (1931) have been involved in printmaking. His typographic prints have received great appreciation and are included in several museum collections, including the Print Room of the Rijksmuseum Amsterdam, the Groninger Museum, Museum Het Valkhof and Stadtmuseum in Borken.
His typographic works reminds me of work by H.N.Werkman, another Dutch artist/printmaker who's bold and experimental work I absolutely admire.
