About This Way Brouwn
During the first half of the nineteen sixties, photographer Igno Cuypers lived for a while right behind Willem de Ridder’s gallery in Amstel 47, Amsterdam. Here he ran into several ‘avant garde’ artists like Stanley Brouwn. Brouwn asked him sometime in 1964 to document several street performances. He was on the road with the artist in Amsterdam for two or three days. Brouwn paid him 50 guilders (€22,69).
Cuypers stated that Brouwn intended to make a work with “a movement from A to B” but the first day the artist did not really know how such an action should be documented. At a certain moment Brouwn asked a passer-by to draw a map with directions. Then, as stated by Cuypers, “things really got going”.
For this publication Cuypers selected 25 photographs (2 of those see above); many of them were never shown before.
