KAMISHIBAI – NEW STORY IN THE ABC COLLECTION
WAAR DIENT HET VOOR?
José Maria Vieira Mendes (text), Madalena Matoso (illustrations), Annelies Beck (translation)
Available in Dutch
I am a story that likes to ask questions.
I prefer a world of questions to one of answers. I like to search, and to confuse. So instead of answering, I prefer to question the questions I get. Especially questions that I hear often.
Like: ‘What it is for?’
This picture book puts objects, natural phenomena, and even language under the microscope in a funny way. Like toddlers, it takes endless pleasure in asking pertinent questions. Unusual and clever. Wonderful to look at!

ABC-HOUSE MURALS KATRIEN DE BLAUWER AND TOUR OF THE NORTHERN QUARTER
As part of the call for art in the public space, the Belgian artist Katrien De Blauwer has created a piece especially for ABC House. Her work is transformed into wall panels that decorate the back of the building. These form a permanent, publicly accessible installation at the beginning of the Zennepark on the border of Brussels-City and Schaerbeek.
Alongside the work of Katrien De Blauwer, two panels tell the story of the Northern Quarter, created in collaboration with Brukselbinnenstebuiten. They also developed a guided walk through the district suitable for families and children.

POSTA SILENZIOSA 12/2022
Every first day of the month ABC sends a mail: “Posta silenziosa.” A powerful image, a provocative quote, a poetic thought, etc., coming from the ABC collection or the web, and sometimes linked to one of our current projects, but mainly just because we like to surprise you. An eye- or heartcatcher, or call it ‘a healthy form of emotional irritation.’
Sign up here if you want to receive Posta Silenziosa.
