In total, seven issues were published between 1993 and 1998, creating a unique and varied forum that documents and comments upon the different exhibitions, events, projects, lectures, and discussions presented at the center in that period. Through their wide circulation, the Cahier series helped to promote the center’s program internationally. It also functioned as a platform for design and artistic experimentation: All the issues are the same size, but each was designed by a different typographer; moreover, each cover was designed by a different artist, and 100 copies of each print run of 2,000 were signed, creating a special, limited-edition version. The Cahier series was initiated by Witte de With’s first director, Chris Dercon, together with Hans Richter of Richter Verlag, Düsseldorf.
