Pierre Huyghebaert, Vincent Meessen
The Black Art of Belgica
With their guests Gijs de Heij, Pierre Marchand, Femke Snelting, Raphaël Pirenne, Camille Pageard, they will focus on Belgika, a project developed by Meessen and Huyghebaert entailing open source typography. Belgica is the name of an open source typefont, while Belgika is the collaborative project surrounding the typefont. The project stems from Huygebaert's research into "typographical archeology", conducted within the collective OSP (Open Source Publishing), and the interest of Meessen in the contemporary everyday implications of colonial shapes.
