Jef Geys installation "Quadra medicinale" was commissioned by the Flemish Ministry of Culture, curated by Dirk Snauwaert, and produced by Wiels Contemporary Art Centre Brussels.
"The project is accompanied by a special edition of the "Kempens Informatieblad" (Kempens Information Journal), which gives an overview of 53 of Jef Geys's projects dating from the late-1950s onwards. He documents his long-held interest in the relationships between 'low' forms and complex, 'sophisticated' disciplines such as science and art. In 1971, Geys took charge of the local journal, the Kempens Informatieblad. Since then he has made a special edition for each of his exhibitions. The intention here was to make an edible newspaper in order to test the cradle-to-cradle slogan 'Waste=Food", but the latest developments in printing technology do not yet enable this. The publication is also a guide for every person in need who tries to survive in a metropolis."--E-flux website (August 5, 2009).
