ABOUT PEER PAPER NOTES ISSUE 3
Peer paper notes issue 3 comes in a triptych,- for this issue we created three booklets out of content loosely based on the theme notes. In an attempt to make something very private public, the artists & writers open up and share their thought process even more than in our previous issues.
To write notes is to take notice of the world and everything in it, your thoughts are still uncensored and everything is possible. Notes are a treasure pit of ideas, dreams and the start of new projects. Artists & writers like to keep them close, but now we get a peek into this world where the magic happens! GET YOUR COPY HERE

Contact/Separation by Patrick Sampson
Weeks after the sudden death of his Mother in 2015, Sampson realised that two of the only photographs he ever took of her lay on two rolls of undeveloped film at his home. In this essay, Sampson transcribes his feelings and apprehensions towards seeing these images for the first time and uses the process to come to terms with her death.
Cover image: Patrick Sampson, booklet made in collaboration with Kay Brugmans, 28 pages.
Conversations by Alina Lupu
Over the course of two weeks at Peer, Lupu recorded a series of public conversations with art professionals where they spoke on the topic of “setting up” -- a situation, a show, a publication, a career. Their words merge into a single conversation throughout the booklet; browse them at will, from beginning-to-end or from any moment you like.
