UITHOEK is a Dutch word (uit = out, hoek = corner) that designates a certain exteriority. This book-object could have been called The Hidden Rivers of Brussels or A Tour of the Attractions of Haren-Vilvoorde. It all began at the end of the 20th century with a conversion to the world and the life of a river that has withstood 100 years of assault, violence and urbanization. UITHOEK is a work that deciphers and unravels at the same time the liminal spaces where urban exteriority begins incessantly. An encrypted peri-urban navigation. A Brussels orography of desire. The diary of a long initiation in the discipline of writing. A temporary refuge for the poetic word. The author has explored Brussels and its valleys for 30 years. This multifaceted work is published in Spanish and in Brussels.
