W-Street (plot points and non-fictions)

Jan-Pieter 't Hart

W-Street (plot points and non-fictions) tells the story of an almost fictional character (A.) in a hardly fictional street (W-Street). Through A.’s walks and observations, Jan-Pieter ‘t Hart writes a relational account of a neighbourhood that became a development project: perpetually unfinished, continually overwriting its many pasts. Tying together this specific urban history with musings on remembering and forgetting, public art and memorials, cinematic references and feminist theory, Jan-Pieter approaches the act of writing as a morning walk: “stitching together imperfectly” these alignments and disjunctions when you turn a corner, or a page.

The text is held together by Tjobo Kho’s drawings, the publication is designed by Lulu van Dijck and published by OUTLINE. Join us on May 20th at 6pm CET for a live reading and sharing on the release event in San Serriffe (Amsterdam).
