Lockdown-edition of Max Havelaar, part 2

01/14/2021 | 1:58 PM

Last year over 170 people contributed to the lockdown edition of Max Havelaar. All contributions are currently in the binder's studio, where they will be bound into a three-volume work. In addition, there will be a binding containing the commentary that the writers wrote for their excerpt. In this video we let some of the writers speak. They talk about the fragment they copied, their enthusiasm for Multatuli and Max Havelaar, their family history in which the colonial relations played a role and about the experience of writing by hand, which in this 21st century is not always obvious.
