Film Project: Crossed Wires
Interviews and conceptualisation by Philippine Hoegen.
In celebration of its 50th anniversary, Art Brussels has commissioned a film which explores the Belgian art scene as perceived from different positions and timeframes within the past 50 years. It gives insight into its development and complexity, focusing in particular but not exclusively on Brussels.
Through a series of conversations between people who are deeply immersed in the contemporary art environment, the film explores the direct experiences of those who have been part of the recent history of Belgian art. We asked them questions relating to their artistic and social paths, how their trajectories have shaped certain practices and what this means today. During the process, various interlocutors have been asked to suggest new contributors each time, so that every conversation generated new exchanges.
Interlocutors will include: gallerists Albert Baronian and Amaryllis Jacobs, director at Komplot Sonia Dermience, artist Sophie Nys, artistic director at WIELS Dirk Snauwaert, senior curator at M-Museum Leuven Eva Wittocx and curator at M HKA Nav Hacq among many others.
The film will be on view on the fair ground from 19 to 22 April
