Agora: The archive – exhibited
Book fair – Jan van Eyck publications and over 4,000 library doubles

Agora: The archive — exhibited is centred on the archive of former gallery/foundation/artists' initiative Agora in Maastricht. Agora was set up in Maastricht in 1972 by artists Theo van der Aa and Ger van Dijck. Apart from the fact that Agora greatly boosted the art climate in the city of Maastricht and the province of Limburg, it also gained a leading position in the area of innovative artists' initiatives in the Netherlands.
