Entree: gratis

Ik zie mijzelf en twijfel aan alles.
Ik weet zeker dat er niets is waaraan ik niet twijfel.
Dat weet ik niet zeker!
Dat weet ik wel zeker!

- Toon Tellegen -

Exhibition in the library with texts by Dutch author Toon Tellegen and portraits by Flemish illustrator Ingrid Godon. Godon’s portraits have a calm, autonomous quality and are the perfect foil for Tellegen’s poetic and introspective texts about the meaning of ‘being me’; something which we all reflect on from time to time.

Toon Tellegen & Ingrid Godon

“Ik en mijzelf” (me and myself) is the fourth book by the award-winning duo Ingrid Godon and Toon Tellegen. They have already made the beautiful series ‘Ik wou’, ‘Ik denk’ en ‘Ik moet’. In this gem you get a special and moving look at the ‘I’.
Toon Tellegen made warm, philosophical and sometimes confronting poems about identity. Ingrid Godon made captivating portraits, typical of her special style.

Both Toon Tellegen and Ingrid Godon were nominated by the Netherlands and Belgium respectively for the Astrid Lindgren Memorial Award 2020, an international children’s literature prize.
