ENTER ENTER – A space for books
ENTER ENTER is a non-profit location in Amsterdam hosted by Roma Publications (Roger Willems), Fw:Books (Hans Gremmen) and Premiss (John Simons). It is not a bookstore, but also not a gallery: ENTER ENTER is a project space dedicated to ‘the art of the book’. It focuses on projects and collaborations that illuminate, celebrate and research the medium and expose it to discussion. Together with publishers, designers, authors, printers and others that are involved in producing independent art books, exhibitions are designed, meetings are organised and projects are initiated. Everything to make an active contribution to the climate surrounding graphic design and books.
ENTER ENTER brings together art, craftsmanship and oeuvres in its very own way. In doing so, it appeals not only to a great need in a profession where there is less attention for the craft of graphic design and in particular the book, but it is also a powerful personal initiative. ENTER ENTER’s mission is clear, the approach researching and critical. The power of the physical space, the purposefully varied programming and the discipline-transcending collaboration without personal gain are a positive enrichment of the current landscape in the Netherlands, but also further afield. ENTER ENTER comes straight from the heart.
