Self-initiated
Roosje Klap and
Joost Janmaat 
(Partizan Publik), 
2010–2011

An agenda, even a regular one, is quite a special book. More essentially, it provides the illusion of order on the one hand and of comfort on the other: there is always a day following another day.
More fundamentally though, an agenda is a symbol of your life. An agenda grows with you; it becomes a chronique of what you did during the year.
Apart from the normal agenda functionality (to order your life), this particular version adds reflection and soul searching. This little book not only enables you to structure your appointments, but provokes you to contemplate why you meet people or do things.
Over the course of the month, you can map out your own agenda’s, the consciously hidden and outright subliminal ones. The double agenda is literally a two sided book. One side is more accessible than the other. The more accessible side looks pretty much like an ordinary agenda. But the days here are punctuated by questions that provoke to think about why you do things, why you meet with people?
Ultimate soul searching, finally, is found in the less accessible side. Cahier after cahier of brutally empty pages. Nothing more frightening than nothing to hang on to or react against. It also contains 2300 questions that we feel you should ask yourself every day.
