GAFPA goes official

My website has a new URL:


The old URL is no longer in use:


The name of this website was suggested by Flemish writer Willem Elsschot's prophetic novels about bluffing and conning . Written around 1933 and 1924/1938, they have lost nothing of their freshness. GAFPA comes from Kaas (Cheese) in which a middle class Belgian vainly attempts to bluff his way into the trading world by selling Dutch Edam Cheese. His firm needs a name and one afternoon's work results in the acronym GAFPA:
General Antwerp Feeding Products Association

GAFPA has that typical Dada-like association, making it the perfect name for my gallery.
