1991, En Passant 25 installation windows. Location 20: Serpentstraat 26. each artist has two pages in the catalogue at their disposition, to the right a picture of their presentation and to the left a free contribution, so to speak.

1 In many European countries, small obituary cards, printed for the occasion and typically showing a picture of the deceased and some pious epigrammatic texts, are distributed to the mourners at the burial. The cards are eagerly collected by... obituary card collectors.
