Colouring Book Not Only for Kids 2.

2009-12-10

Zsófi Faur - Ráday Gallery is the publisher of the experimental ’colouring book’ intended for the largest minority – children. In this series prestigious artists, not convinced of the perfectness of adult society/power, provide drawings for kids. But these artists also know, just as much as children do, that every small child will grow up one day to become an adult. Therefore, they suggest that a more colourful, tolerant and freer world should be imagined along with them.

According to the intention of the editors, as a windup for the nine individual colouring book series, a tenth book will also come into existence, the ’protagonists’ being the creators of the colouring books.
Throughout the nine chapters of the book, the reader will be introduced to the artistic creation (technical, intellectual and everyday conditions) of each of the artists’ colouring books. Besides this, a more general artistic portrait will unfold in front of the eyes of readers, parents and children: the artists’ ideas about the world, art and kids.
