Publication design for dutch artist Amie Dicke to accompany her solo exhibition at the GEM museum of modern art in the Hague. The newspaper consists of an interview with Amie and an overview of her work. Central to her exhibition is a work that revolves around the history of the Gemeente Museum, where the exhibition took place. The design of the newspaper partly consists of a grid of thick beams. The beams form a composition on the front page and change their position as you go through the publication. The beams then come together again in a different colour composition on the last page. The beam-structure is built upon a square grid, that together with the used colours refer to H.P. Berlage, who is the architect of the GEM museum of modern art. The structure acts as an intervention, interacting with the tekst and images of Amie's work.
