Art & Project

Art & Project. Een geschiedenis delves into the rich history and profound influence of Amsterdam's Art & Project gallery, coinciding with an exhibition at the Kröller-Müller Museum. Exploring the gallery's exhibitions, bulletins, its vibrant social circle, and its impact on the national and international art scene, this book offers a multifaceted perspective. Haller Brun, the Amsterdam-based design studio helmed by Sonja Haller and Pascal Brun, lends its unique touch to the book's design. Having earned their stripes in Switzerland, the duo brought their talents to the Netherlands in 2011, specializing in art, design, and architecture, with a distinct flair for editorial design. Haller Brun's work seamlessly blends Swiss precision and typographic finesse with the Dutch penchant for directness and playfulness.
