10 + 1 A.P. editions
2005 - 2017

Casino 2001 was annouced as the first quadriennale of Ghent. There was however never a second edition. 
Peter Lemmens produced a catalogue for each missing year. 
Following the original layout of the catalogue, new artworks are chosen, texts and captions are updated and all contextualizing current affair images are replaced.

The first book contains one artwork and all contextualizing current affair images are replaced by a series of everday snapshots depicting a view from Peter Lemmens' appartment window at different times during that year.

The second book contains the same artwork as the first book and all contextualizing current affair images are replaced by a new series of everday snapshots depicting a view from Peter Lemmens' appartment window at different times during that year.

The third book contains a newly selected artwork and all contextualizing current affair images are replaced by a new series of snapshots depicting a completely blue sky at different times during that year.

The forth and last book contains again a new artwork, invites a second artist (Kris Van Dessel) with a new work Gradients of Gentrification Possibilities and all contextualizing current affair images are replaced by a new series of images depicting screenshots from Peter Lemmens' computer at different times during that year.
