With a full program of slides by Sohrab Hura, Pieter ten Hoopen, Sébastien van Malleghem and Anton Coene we will close off the festival with a bang.
Some of Belgians finest musicians like Rudy Trouvé, Aldo Stuyf, Elko Blijweert, Hannes d’Hoine, Sjoerd Bruil, and more will be playing live and/or have created a unique soundscape with the pieces created by the photographers.
Photography will literally become performance and will blow your minds away.
Sohrab Hura’s slide was the highlight at the Peckham 24 festival during the London Photo Fair for the folks of the British Journal of Photography, Sean O’Hagan of the Guardian as well as the director of the Photographers Gallery. No more reference needed right? 🙂
Don’t miss this incredible, exciting and enthralling night where photography meets music. Welcome!
“We together” brings together female artists with backgrounds in the Middle East, as well as in Europe and the USA. They have in common that they are critical in their photography and video work with female identities and everyday environments, personal situations, dependencies, gender roles and the political changes in a regional as well as global context. 14 different views on women by women.
Raeda Saadeh danced during an intense and haunting performance at the vernissage, visited by a big crowd. Meeting her, getting to know her work, spending some days with both her and Maryam has been heartwarming. Raeda’s vision as an artist, Maryam’s drive and passion to show the world a different view and get people together and connected is incredibly inspiring. Do take a moment to get to know their work.
Until the 18th of December on view in Schaumbad – Freies Atelierhaus, Graz
This coming Friday, I’ll be talking about my photography and sharing a conversation on photography and why I photograph people with fellow photographers Ali Sultan and Wei Leng Tay at Habib University in Karachi, Pakistan.
From 4pm onwards you’re more then welcome to join us. Habib University, Plot #295, Block 18, Gulistan-e-Juhar, Karachi.
I’m very proud to present Slide #1.
With some friends, I’ve founded Bending The Frame vzw, a new non profit organization that will search for new ways and create different platforms to bring great photography out into the world.
For Slide #1, we’ve asked photographers Sébastien Van Malleghem and Eva Wollenberg to make a slideshow presentation of their work and think about the concept slideshow. We match them up with the amazing musicians Aldo Struyf (Creature with the atom Brain, Mark Lanegan Band), Gregory Frateur (Dez Mona) and Roel van Camp (Dez Mona, DAAU) who either created new music especially for the evening or will preform a live soundtrack along the images. A unique experience.
Afterwords and in between performances DJ Faster PussyKat will spin records and make everyone pur on the dance floor
Hope to see you all there in helping me launch this new venture.
Last year, I was a part of the wonderful exhibition ‘Return to sender’ at Wiels, organized by KAOS.
101 well-known and lesser known artists sent an original postcard of their own making to KAOS, a Brussels-based non-profit organization aiming to break down the barriers between insiders andoutsiders in art and psychiatry. These unique postcards were shown last year in WIELS and will be auctioned to support the artist residency in psychiatry, that KAOS will organize this autumn for the first time in Belgium.
Now it’s time to auction off all our postcards.
The auction will take place in the beautiful Rotonde Bertouille in Bozar/Centre for Fine Arts in Brussels and will be led by Marianne Hoet on behalf of Christie’s. The works will soon be accessible via the KAOS website and you can see them on Saturday, October 3rd (10:00-18:00) and Sunday, October 4th (10:00-15:00) at Bozar.
