Belgian curator, publisher and essayist. In 1974 he co-founded the renowned Archive for Small Press and Communication (ASSPC).
That was part of an important international network within the independent art press. He became famous in the art world for his tireless work with artists and artist archives. He supported artists from all over the world trough many initiatives, including his own Archive Space.
His work for Polish artists in the 1970s in particular proved to be a great support for their international advancement. From 1966 to 1976 he also led Galerie Kontakt in Antwerp, where he showed work by Jef Geys, Georges Vantongerloo, Lucio Fontana and others. He also had his own publishing house, Guy Schraenen éditeur, with which he published a stream of publications. In 1989 he became curator of the collection artist publications ‘A Museum within a Museum’ at the Museum Weserburg in Bremen. That museum also took over the Archive for Small Press and Communication in 1999. Ref.1
