posted in events, premiere, projects

Saturday 30th November at 16.00h

After the success of KWARTET (2010), Koen Taselaar & Marijke Appelman joined their forces again and made a complete new version of the game: KWARTET II (2013). Saturday November 30 at 16.00h KWARTET II will be released and the brand new version of the game will be played at Upominki a.k.a. the New Rotterdam Championships – are then and there!

This will be also the first chance for you to collect a copy of KWARTET II!

KWARTET is a Dutch card game using the simple premise of collecting a complete family of four cards (a so-called KWARTET) per given category. In this version of the game the fourteen families are formed by artworks grouped by their underlying subject matter or the formal principles used. KWARTET II contains families of artworks in the categories: ASHTRAY, BEER PYRAMID, DOORS IN DOORS, DOUBLE SCREEN, DRAWING MACHINE, GRADIENT, OVER THE EDGE, PLANTS, SLEEPING, THE ARTISTS SHOES, TRIANGLE IN CORNER, USED TO SKATE, WATERMELON and WORD VITRINE. The works KWARTET and KWARTET II rejoice the recirculation of images as a gesture towards the appreciation of contemporary art in varying contexts – thanks to the internet for making art accessible.

KWARTET II is designed by Team Thursday’s Loes van Esch and Simone Trum and printed in The Netherlands by Drukkerij de Maasstad.

After the release of KWARTET II, the artists donated five editions of KWARTET II and ten KWARTET II badges. Both items can be now purchased via Upominki gift shop.
