| Beautifully designed by Michaël Snitker.

The core of the publication Schaepmanstraat - De Kempenaerstraat is the eponymous temporary artistic intervention which Dutch artist Lucas Lenglet made on the facade of his apartment in Amsterdam. For the period of five months he fenced off the windows of his apartment with a steel mesh construction. Reflecting on this artwork, Lenglet describes and unfolds the historical, socio-political and artistic layers connected to the local circumstances and private motivations leading to the intervention in an essay. The publication originated as a collaboration with graphic designer Michaël Snitker and is enriched and illustrated with visual material gathered from local archives. It connects the artwork to the housing crisis, the rent strike from 1932 and the violent squatters riots from 1985 amongst others. Another layer to the publication is formed by the interior photographs Lenglet took during his Covid-19 quarantine in his self-created domestic cage. The publication gives an inside into the past, present and future of Schaepmanstraat - De Kempenaerstraat and could be read as a showcase of Lenglet’s work in general.

Lucas Lenglet (1972) is a visual artist who graduated from the Gerrit Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam in 2000. In his practice, where he combines studio work and working in public space, he examines notions of inclusion and exclusion by means of the language of the built. He showed his installations and sculptures in solo presentations in amongst others, Stedelijk Museum Bureau Amsterdam, Palais de Tokyo, Stigter van Doesburg gallery and most recent Kröller-Müller Museum. Lenglet participated in various group shows in institutes like Atelier Néerlandais Paris, 3rd Athens Biennale, Martin-Gropius-Bau in Berlin and Kunstinstituut Melly in Rotterdam. His work in public space can be visited in Potsdam, Sint-Oedenrode, Utrecht and Zaanstad. He has been a (visiting) lecturer and advisor at Gerrit Rietveld Academie, LUCA School of Art Brussels, van Eyck and Rijksakademie and is a mentor for starting artists on invitation of the Mondriaan Fund.
