Margarita Production, an ‘alternative management office’ based in Brussels, recently celebrated its 10th birthday! And on this occasion they published a retrospective catalogue of their work over the past decade, featuring a wide range of materials to illustrate the various projects they’ve worked on in theatre, dance and more. I took care of the translations and the proofreading for the catalogue.

Jules Wabbes (1919-1974) is one of the leading Belgian furniture designers of the post-war period. An exhibition devoted to his work is currently running at the Bozar Centre for Fine Arts in Brussels. The show runs until Sunday 13 January and was curated by Marie Ferran-Wabbes and Iwan Strauwen in a scenography by Jurgen Persijn. I proofread the exhibition catalogue, which is published by A+editions and Bozar Books. I also proofread the short visitor’s guide.

Words from the Cage aux Ours

leave a comment »

Published by the non-profit organisation Constant, Mots de la Cage aux Ours/ Woorden uit de Berenkuil gathers colloquialisms used in and around Place Verboeckhovenplein in the Brussels commune of Schaerbeek (FR) or Schaarbeek (NL). Nicknamed the ‘bear cage’ or ‘bear pit’, this popular neighbourhood is home to various immigrant communities, and the languages covered in the dictionary thus include, besides French and Dutch, Albanian and Arabic, Cameroonian and Chinese, Lingala and Turkish, among others. Besides the ‘dictionary’ section in which the various terms are explained, the book also includes a number of texts on language and the neighbourhood. An English version of these texts is available on Constant’s website. I proofread all the English translations.

Five six-month residencies succeeded one another between 2008 and 2011 in a house in 1030 Brussels, part of a project commissioned by the non-profit arts lab nadine and entitled TBC: To Be Confirmed. Conceived and compiled by Rebecca Lenaerts, the small booklet What are my duties? A story to be confirmed collects interviews with the five artists and collectives that participated in the project. The booklet is published in Dutch, English and French. I took care of the English and French translations from the Dutch.
