Philippe Vandenberg: Molenbeek (BOZAR, 2020)
About the film:
These promotional films were created on the occasion of the solo exhibition Philippe Vandenberg: Molenbeek. The exhibition was held in 2020-2021 in BOZAR, Brussels. It focused on the years that Philippe Vandenberg spent in Molenbeek. The neighbourhood inspired him to create a satirical world in which he consistently exposed the recurring structures of oppression, fundamentalism and groupthink. On view were observations on paper constituting a burlesque Molenbeek: an imaginary site where personal and collective traumas are humorously and ironically interwoven with urban problems and global conflicts.
