Mijn huis was (‘My House Was’) is a moving story of the burned-out memory of Kaatje’s grandma – or is it a story about her grandma’s burned-out house? Paul de Moor wrote an account of diminishing memory to accompany photographs by Karin Borghouts. Leen Depooter designed the words and images.
Karin Borghouts is a photo-artist, who has taken part in over fifty exhibitions in Belgium and abroad. Previous publications devoted to her work include Through the Looking Glass and the artist’s book The house (of my childhood burned down and I went in to take pictures).
