Henderikse’s oeuvre seems composed of arbitrary choices for assemblages and readymades, photography, film, artists' books and installation art. This publication sheds light on Henderikse's multi-form oeuvre––and on the difficulty of pigeonholing the artist. Henderikse has always been an artist 'in between', flirting with the purity of ZERO, with the impish outlook on life of Nul, with the object-related imagery of the Nouveaux Réalistes, with Pop Art and with Fluxus.
This monograph is an important addition to the history of Nul and ZERO in the Netherlands. New material from Jan and Idi Henderikse's personal archive makes this publication an essential read!
