As our closing date looms ever nearer, we have reminisced over the past six years. Before our speakers thump out their last beat on January 3rd, we would like to share our memories and experiences with you through an extraordinary book and limited edition box set that comprehensively represents the life of our nightclub, restaurant and art space!
‘The Trouw Book’ contains a host of exclusive pictures, personal anecdotes and interviews from the various deejays, crew-members and founders that made up Trouw. It includes exchanges with all the Innervisions artists and interviews with our residents like Tom Trago and Job Jobse, while a cacophony of international voices, including Gerd Janson and Optimo, have penned some thoughts for this book. Our founder and creative director Olaf Boswijk will bid you farewell with an endearing letter and a thorough history of the venue is incorporated through conversations with the architects and designers, featuring stories dating back to Trouw’s many predecessors, including 11. The Trouw Book will only be published in English.
‘The Trouw Book’ is a unique insight behind the scenes and a look at the people who helped make it happen. The book explores the ideas and vision that established Trouw as an interdisciplinary space, linking food, architecture, community and conceptual art into one. The Trouw Box set (only 250 numbered editions) will take it a step further and will feature a double pack vinyl with tribute tracks by our residents, ‘The Trouw Book’, behind the scenes photos, an illustrated map of Trouw and actual physical remains of the building! The release date is set for mid December.
