In May 2004, within the framework of Antwerp World Book Capital, Fleur and Jeroen Olyslaegers were asked to devise a project around dandyism. They came up with ROBODANDY- an event in which literature, fashion, design, electronic music and performance would all meet. During six months, public could request one ROBODANDY per Saturday with the MODENATIE fashion museum, choose a text from a collection of prose and poetry written by dandy-writers from the present and the past and a public spot in the city centre. The ROBODANDIES, dressed by RAF SIMONS, would go to that spot and read the chosen text. Half an hour later, customers could go and view a video recording of their performance .
