Monument is a fanzine dedicated to the “Dutch Wave”, a group of Dutch fashion designers who created international fame around the turn of the century. Each number is dedicated to one designer or design duo. This second issue focuses on the work of the duo Keupr/van Bentm (Michiel Keuper and Francisco van Benthum). Between 1997 and 2001, they challenged the fashion industry with their surprising and colorful statement collections. Monument is a project by stylist and fashion researcher Mary-Lou Berkulin and graphic designer Karen van de Kraats.
In Monument, images and texts from various archives are combined with new interviews and photography. Each issue has its own unique design and editorial approach, completely in keeping with the designer to whom the issue is dedicated. Central to this paper monument for Keupr/van Bentm is the work that they made between 1997 and 2001. A conversation between Mary-Lou and Keupr/van Bentm has been supplemented with quotes and texts from articles from the archive and a new long-read, written by fashion researcher Laura Gardner.
In addition to original images from the designers’ archives, Monument also contains newly created photography. For this issue Mary-Lou collaborated with photographer Roos Quakernaat. She took pictures in the depot of the Centraal Museum in Utrecht, where the most special items from Keupr/van Bentm have been carefully stored. In addition, together with Mary-Lou, she created a new fashion series in which she combines her own photography with images from the designers’ archives into surprising collages.
In this issue:
 The fashion designers of ‘The Dutch Wave’ make remarkable and seemingly unavoidable use of this type of expression when describing their years as young, emerging designers. It is ironic that both of these rides do not provide any option to change direction or to pull on the brakes. After all, Michiel Keuper and Francisco van Benthum, the designers subject of this second issue of Monument, didn’t get on board to just sit back and take in the view.

With photography by Roos Quakernaat and an essay by fashion writer Laura Gardner.
