It’s fair to say that no publication exemplifies the new Antwerp wave like Bam- which ran for only 3 issues (1 supplement was also produced). Under the careful eye of art director Anne Kurris Bam exploded into the world in 1988. The main contributors are Walter Van Beirendonck as stylist, Stoops as photographer and Grognard on make up duties, with eye popping post modern shoots featuring Ann Demeulemeester, Margiela, Dries, Walter, recent Royal Academy graduates, Dirk Van Saene.
