The Session is a collective of eight designers and artists that make a thematic, interdisciplinary fanzine since September 2007. This special edition around the theme Endism is not only a publication, but also takes the form of an exhibition, a cinema and a radio station.
The Session does not work with a standard form or a recurrent theme. Per session, one of the eight artists and designers determines the theme and is responsible for editing, design and production. This time Flemish-American curator Jan Van Woensel fulfils this role.
Dozens of Flemish, Dutch and international artists, designers, performers, film makers and authors contribute to The Last Session.
The Session is: Tomas Adolfs, Staffan Björk, Orpheu De Jong, Matthias Kreutzer, Kalle Mattsson, Jens Schildt, Tarja Szaraniec and Monica Tormell.
