Stanley Brouwn

Stanley Brouwn

Stanley Brouwn (Surinam 1935 – Amsterdam 2017) Starting in 1962 and until his passing in May 2017, Stanley Brouwn had consistently insisted that his biography and art work not to be printed or reproduced in any publication related to exhibitions of his work. The brochures for Brouwn’s retrospective at Van Abbemuseum in Eindhoven and MACBA in Barcelona (2005-2006) specified that his work is mainly “about measurements and real distances, any image of his work could only be seen as a distortion.”  Abiding by Brouwn’s wish, and honouring his legacy, we decided not to include Brouwn’s biography, and to include instead blank pages in the booklet accompanying his exhibition at EENWERK.
