About: The 'We Are The World' catalogue consists of a gatefold cardboard sleeve unfolding in two ‘pockets’. The first pocket contains an booklet featuring documentation about the participating artists. The second pocket contains a set of posters, each one featuring a full-colour work by the artist on the frontside, and a black and white (self-)portrait of the artist on the back. The gatefold catalogue as a whole is packaged in a transparent, plastic sleeve.
"In 2003, we designed the catalogue, graphic identity and sign system for ‘We Are The World’, the group exhibition that was held at the Dutch Pavilion during the Venice Biennial (Biennale di Venezia), taking place between June 15 and November 2 of that same year. The curator was Rein Wolfs, the participating artists were (in alphabetical order) Carlos Amorales, Alicia Framis, Meschac Gaba, Jeanne van Heeswijk and Erik van Lieshout. Rein Wolfs proposed the title, ‘We Are The World’, as it was his intention to turn this exhibition into a clear and optimistic statement about multiculturalism in the Netherlands today. In fact, of the five chosen artists, only two (Jeanne van Heeswijk and Erik van Lieshout) were born in the Netherlands; the other artists were born in Mexico (Carlos Amorales), Spain (Alicia Framis) and Benin (Meschac Gaba)."
