A monthly bulletin in Dutch connected with the activities of an avant-garde art center New Reform in Aalst, Belgium, founded and operated by the curator Roger D`Hondt 1970–1979. Focused on conceptual art, performance and mail art, the New Reform hosted artists such as Taka IImura, Jan Swidzinski, Herve Fischer, Reiner Werk, and Joseph Beuys. In addition to holding performances and publishing this bulletin, the gallery functioned as a kind of artist residency, with D`Hondt often hosting artists from various countries directly in the gallery. Throughout the 1970s, New Reform was also one of the few Western art spaces working with artists from Eastern Europe, especially Czechoslovakia, Poland and Hungary. The collaboration began with D’Hondt’s trip east in 1972, during which he met the Czech performance artist Petr Štrembera, subsequently hosting performances by Jolanta Marcola, Janusz Haka and Zdislaw Sosnowski among others. The full archive of the gallery was acquired from D`Hondt by Tate Modern.
