JET: it's not a plane, it's not a girl's name, it's a book about art
Witte de With Pub., Apr 1, 2009 - Art - 159 pages
JET is a publication on contemporary art by and for young people, aged 14 to 18.The publication has the form of an eclectic, colourful, inspiring scrapbook, which arouses curiosity and challenges readers to investigate further. Themes, artists, disciplines, philosophies, principles, continents and cultures intersect, revealing the diversity of contemporary art and society. Readers can leaf through the book casually, but they can just as easily lose themselves in a probing story, in-depth interview or evocative illustration. Artists and topics are drawn from Witte de With's extensive network and program. JET is produced in collaboration with an editorial staff of five young people, so that it will tie into the intellectual contexts and lived experience of young people. This staff is called the Junior Editorial Team (JET); their ages and educational levels vary. Through this initiative, Witte de With is using its expertise to encourage young people to experience contemporary visual art and learn more about it. It is intended to set a national and international standard for art books for young people.
