Onthaasting: About Spare Time and Slower Worlds
November 11 through December 21, 2008
Onthaasting is a mental diversion through the use of recreation as an "escape" from the perceived unpleasant aspects of daily life. It takes place on the outskirts of contemporary life: on mountaintops, in wide-open plains, in churches, in landscapes, in gardens ... but most of all in the mind. The exhibition presents Belgian contemporary video artists within this conceptual framework.
Curated by Niels Van Tomme and Jan Van Woensel.
