project from Yana Foqué with IIIW
February 2013 - June 2013
From february 'till june 2013 Yana Foqué, Jozefien Gruyaert and myself owned a nightshop at Veldstraat 69, 2060 Antwerp.
Inspired by the dozen of shops, coming and going around that neighbourhood and the beautiful failed graphic design they use, we decided to start our own in a former nightshop.
Instead of selling Cara Pils and cigarettes we filled the shabby shelves with books, zines, records, tapes of independent publishers and literature about 'the night'. Events took place on a monthly/weekly base.
