Solo exhibition


September 17, 2020 — January 3, 2021
BOZAR, Brussels (BE)

The solo exhibition Philippe Vandenberg: Molenbeek will be on view from September 19, 2020, until January 3, 2020, in BOZAR, Brussels. The exhibition throws light on the years spent in Brussels by Philippe Vandenberg. Until his death in 2009 Vandenberg worked in Molenbeek, where he became deeply conscious of the area’s social realities. In this exhibition curator Barry Rosen explores Vandenberg’s socially engaged art from that period through over 300 works on paper. With drawings, graphic elements and paper sculptures he leads you through the artist’s Molenbeek; an imaginary site in which personal life is caught up in the problems of the big city, world conflicts and history. Molenbeek is the first major Belgian exhibition of Philippe Vandenberg’s radical oeuvre since his death.

From 24 September until 10 January, 2020, the group exhibition Danser Brut will take place in BOZAR in Brussels, Belgium. Danser Brut will attempt to reveal the connection between dance and involuntary or repetitive movements. The exhibition will examine different forms of expression of the body, the face and the hands as a translation of our being-in-the-world. Through an intriguing mix of Art Brut, modern and contemporary art, medical archive documents, film excerpts, etc., the exhibition defies any categorisation.
