Walter is editor-in-chief of De Standaard!

Tying in with the exhibition, Walter Van Beirendonck is editor-in-chief of the Belgian newspaper De Standaard for their edition of September 16th.

Over the past few years, De Standaard has built a real tradition by inviting prominent Belgian in the arts to guest-edit the newspaper: artist Luc Tuymans in 2007, Jan Fabre in 2008 and photographer Carl De Keyzer in 2009.

It was an exiting project and De Standaard took the challenge to let someone who is primarily concerned with the visual aspects of a product take charge of the news. The culture section became the “main” section, and the news section is the insert, all the multipage articles are printed on non-facing pages, and Walter’s icons and slogans appear liberally throughout the pages!

Also check-out De Standaard of 17/09 with a free ticket for the Walter Van Beirendonck – Dream The World Awake exhibition!
