Loesje method

Loesje is a writers collective founded in 1984 in the Netherlands. Over the years, this now international network has developed its own method of activist writing in public space. At its core is a creative writing workshop which is radically collective in its refusal of authorship - all writings are signed by the imaginary girl Loesje - and circular collaborative writing in which all participants add on to each other. Collaboration in a non-hierarchical setting proceeds through the process of editing, printing and finally distributing one liners in the form of posters.
