Synopses & Reviews
Janfamily is a group of young artists who share a unique approach to life. They explore the things that surround them, and together they create alternatives to everyday routines. "Janfamily: Suggestions for Take Overs," their first book, is a manifesto of their philosophy: it is a "how-to" book, a list of proposals on how to relate to our own environment.
By offering solutions to problems such as "How to soften a challenge" and "How not to do what you did yesterday," we are invited to revisit the simple things in life that are often ignored or unnoticed. "Janfamily: Suggestion for Take Overs" is a humorous yet touching presentation of an innovative way of looking at the world.
