NEW SECTION! REDISCOVERY This year, Art Brussels launches a new section, REDISCOVERY. This segment of the fair makes a link to the ‘discovery profile’ for which Art Brussels is already known. Fourteen galleries present works by important artists (living or deceased) from the historic avant-garde, who have been underestimated, overlooked or unduly forgotten. The selection focuses on art created between 1917 and 1987, linking the beginnings of conceptual art with the advent of neo-conceptual practices and highlighting the importance of art-historical memory. By profiling surprising, unknown and original artists who are not yet in the mainstream of art history, REDISCOVERY aims to counteract the presentism inherent to contemporary art fairs. • balzer projects, Basel Lilly Keller (CH, 1929)

The ‘black market’ is not something illegal, but simply something that has not entered the realm of the official. In 2013, the Video Slink Uganda project involved translating, pirating and burning – slinking – seven experimental videos by contemporary African diasporan artists onto bootleg DVDs and circulating them to millions of viewers via Kampala’s black market cinema. At Art Brussels 2016, Black Market appears as a space in which to present the use of black-market strategies in artistic creation and investigate the issue of circulation and distribution beneath the realm of the visible. By surfacing in the specific context of the fair, Black Market raises questions on the differentiation and contiguity of black and white. For these four days, more than just displaying traces of research, Black Market is an active research performance, with announced and spontaneous lectures, moments of discussion and performances. Each day, the space is occupied by a different one-day workshop, on subjects ranging from Aleksandra Wasilkowska’s book, Shadow Architecture, to ‘Hackerism’, which reveal both the potential and the limitations of the land of shadow. Apart from the Black Market discursive moments, there will be interventions/presentations in the booth by: Andrew Norman Wilson, SONE (2013-ongoing), SONE is a content producer that helps businesses, producers, and consumers reimagine our current economic situation. SONE is directed by Andrew Norman Wilson and operates on a contract-to-contract basis with a team of freelance artists and thinkers. His core function is to serve global markets of communicators in advertising, business, art, and journalism with high quality, pre-trend stock video clips - about economic uncertainty and discontent - that circulate on both the art/film market and the stock media market through sites like Getty Images.

BLACK MARKET Brussels


Video Slink Uganda, (2013-ongoing) In 2013 artist Marisa Morán Jahn and media ethnographer Paul Falzone initiated the project Video Slink Uganda, involving translating, pirating and burning – “slinking” – seven experimental videos by contemporary African diasporan artists onto bootleg DVDs and circulated to millions of viewers via Kampala’s black market cinema. Sarah Vanagt, Money Exchange (2005), video, 3’45”

Sarah Vanagt (BE) studied history and film, and combines these two fields of interest in her work. She makes documentaries, video installations and photos. Candidatul la Presedintie

In the last 10 years entities with a complex esthetic operativity emerged in the zones of dance and visual arts of Bucharest. Candidatul la Presedintie sometimes appears as artist in political contexts, and often as politician in artistic ones, gaining advantages such as the possibility of entering political campaigns before the legal terms because ‘it is just art’. In the frame of Black Market Romanian collective Candidatul la Presedintie proposes a workshop, while other moments – actions, the selling of other entities, an encounter, the final auction – will happen.

Black Market is a project conceived by Daniel Blanga-Gubbay, Teresa Gentile and Simon Asencio, produced by Aleppo, a laboratory for experiments in performance and politics in Brussels, which connects people and reflections on art and political philosophy. Through a residency at the Académie Royale des Beaux Arts (ARBA-ESA), Aleppo is located at the former Dexia Art Centre at 50 Rue de l’Ecuyer / Schildknaapstraat, Brussels.

This project focusses on Seth Siegelaub’s original book and pivotal exhibition, January 5-31, 1969. It features a black-and-white photograph of Siegelaub’s exhibition space: a rented Manhattan office with artist Adrian Piper (hired as secretary) sitting at a desk, talking on the phone. It was a turning point in contemporary art. Siegelaub inverted the academic relations between work of art, catalogue and space: ‘The exhibition consists of (the ideas communicated in) the catalogue. The physical presence (of the works) is supplementary to the catalogue.’ This was the catalogue as exhibition, office as space to present ideas, secretary as mediator of art. For Art Brussels, a new publication in the same format and structure is a loose adaptation, presenting seven Bureau des Réalités artists. The original Siegelaub book and the new Bureau des Réalités catalogue are exhibited together, with the archival photograph with Adrian Piper enlarged to human scale, creating a new context. Bureau des Réalités is a non-profit project space, bringing an intimate, everyday approach to creation, with artist participation in diverse forms of works, words, objects and dialogues, in the specific environment of the ‘office’ as a place of thought production.* Four to five projects per year include exhibitions, readings, performances and encounters with cultural actors. Bureau des Réalités is located in an eclectic Neo-Renaissance Flemish-style house from 1900, in Forest, Brussels. * The office is a workspace in which to unite thought from the singular into the collective order. It is also the object, a transitional framework in which thought transforms into form, word into language or computer technology. It is the blue screen, the desk hosting various source files from different origins, intentionally or randomly.

DOC

Paris LE MEDECIN DOC is a project by a group of artists united by the need to find working space in Paris. As an independent site dedicated to collective creativity, DOC offers working spaces and shared technical workshops to artists. DOC promotes the sharing of knowledge, the pooling of means of production and distribution and is dedicated to the development of educational and social resources. DOC represents artists’ desire to rely on one’s own resources as a guarantee of artistic freedom. It seeks to bring people together, to create links and a new way of existing in the surrounding world. DOC has no strict definition. It understands the necessity to produce and to exhibit; it is a remedy to current artistic needs. The shared proximity of the activities it hosts is pragmatic: its walls and activities can be adapted to suit the needs of its different projects. Diverse and disparate networks come together in our concert and exhibition spaces. For Art Brussels 2016, DOC brings fifteen selected artists from the collective to Brussels. This group has been chosen to generate a maximum of information to give a fuller understanding of the activities at DOC. A collection of printers of different types, connected with Paris, will be used to materialize on paper our desire to show the range of activities linked to the space, from the rehabilitation of the building itself to the work of the resident artists. From a wider perspective, the project, entitled Le Médecin, attempts to delocalize the collective experiment that is DOC. Supported by EXTRA and Institut Français. www.doc.work STAND F7

ANU VAHTRA: 17,9° For Art Brussels 2016, the Contemporary Art Museum of Estonia (EKKM), presents a reconstruction and a reinterpretation of Anu Vahtra’s site-specific installation, 17,9°. It employs the museum’s most peculiar space, situated in a former transportation bridge that is angled at 17.9 degrees from the ground, therefore emitting a strong physical presence by default. The work manifests itself when the viewer is confronted with his or her own perception of the space – the significance lies not in learning what is depicted on the image that hangs in the middle of the room, but in realizing that the frame seems to be hanging at an angle. By bringing a section of this space into the art fair context in the form of a 1:1 scale model, we allow ourselves and our audience to explore the potential for further interpretation and to introduce the museum through a representation of its spacial characteristics. Anu Vahtra (1982) is an emerging young Estonian artist renowned for her artistic approach to site-specific and space-oriented issues, and for her diligent methods of articulating them. Her installations make the site both the subject and the physical form of the artwork. She is also one of the founders of the Lugemik art book publishing initiative and was the 2015 winner of the Köler Prize Grand Prix. The Contemporary Art Museum of Estonia (EKKM) is a private, non-profit initiative that situates itself somewhere between official state-run institutions and artist-run, do-it-yourself venues. It is an unconventional concept for a museum of contemporary art, working towards producing, exhibiting, collecting and popularizing local and international contemporary art, while altering prevailing working methods of established art institutions. It is a tool of self-establishment for younger-generation artists, curators and art students. www.ekkm.ee STAND F5

Espace KHIASMA Paris LES RÊVES AMÉRICAINS Espace Khiasma presents Les Rêves Américains, by Alexander Schellow and Marie Urban. Following the story of Jacques Demy’s film, Model Shop (1968), Les Rêves Américains reflects on how real fiction and fictional reality permeate urban space. Images of Los Angeles – from Hollywood’s image machine – define the city. Made from remembered snippets of Los Angeles urban space seen through a possible historical movie project, Les Rêves Américains reflects aspects of the city’s evolution from 1968 to today. The archive materializes in an installation that structurally follows the making of a movie on the movie: Les Rêves Américains. Alexander Schellow and Marie Urban’s work is based on relations between space, perception and action. It deals with urban structures and transformation processes in social, political, economic and cultural realities. Based in Les Lilas, near Paris, Khiasma offers a structure for artistic and cultural production and distribution, questioning relations between the arts, politics and social practices. Opened in 2004, Espace Khiasma is a non-profit space for visual arts, performance and living literature. Khiasma is internationally recognized for critical theory, post-colonial and gender issues, but is also active locally, organizing regular conferences, symposia and debates. Khiasma hosts one solo and three group exhibitions per year, some co-produced with other art centres. These focus largely on video and artists’ cinema. Founder and chief curator: Olivier Marboeuf Supported by EXTRA and Institut Français. www.khiasma.net STAND F6

For Art Brussels 2016, HISK proposes a new format, following the success of the HISK Café from previous years. With the fair’s new location, the new project occupies a ‘free-state’ status, reflecting the flexible and unorthodox HISK approach. HISK will again be a presence, showing its agility to adapt new forms of expression. No artworks by HISK residents will be shown, as in the past. Instead, HISK presents Sing Sing, a curated karaoke stage, conceived by HISK alumnus Frederik Van Simaey. Visitors and guest stars from the art world can participate in a programme of the favourite music of HISK residents and alumni. The karaoke music will play continuously throughout the fair. At specific times, the lyrics will also be performed in sign language. A small publication will show which artist selected which song. HISK offers a post-academic programme in audiovisual and visual art, providing young artists from Belgium and abroad with studios for two years. The emphasis is on individual practice, aiming for practical balance between the studio, discussions with visiting lecturers, workshops, reading groups, field trips and public presentations. International and culturally diverse artists stimulate cross-pollination and dialogue. Equally diverse visiting artists, curators, critics, theoreticians, etc., create a framework in which artists adopt critical approaches to their work. The unique HISK concept allows every opportunity to invest in critical research for work within broader artistic, cultural and societal contexts. Most of HISK’s 230 graduates since 1997 currently pursue successful professional careers in the international art world. www.hisk.edu THE BELGIAN BEER TERRACE (outdoors)

Nest The Hague INGMAR KÖNIG: PLAGUE At Art Brussels 2016, Nest presents Plague, a new work by Ingmar König: a visually suggestive installation, a cross between a sculpture and an emergency quarantine tent. Ingmar König identifies his work as a representation of man’s shortcomings and weaknesses. In Plague, he focuses on the arena of fear. Some of the defining strands of fear that König explores connect to the disquiet and unidentified dangers of radiation and viral infection, dangers that can be life-threatening, but that our sensory receptors are unable to read. A specific side effect of viral contamination is in social structures. People normally seek safety and comfort in the company of others, but in a pandemic, humans are forced to abandon the group. Family members or loved ones might be carrying life-threatening viruses. As visitors approach the installation, they experience an odour unlike that of the fair environment and furnishings, amplifying the effect of the visual connotations. By building a structure that makes viewers stop and think, asking if something has gone wrong, or whether there might be a threat inside the structure, Ingmar König hopes to briefly destabilize their visit to the art fair. He creates an uncomfortable moment, highlighting the privileged comforts of Western life, while sparking our fear of what might lurk in the shadows of our luxurious circumstances. Nest is a large, independent public exhibition space in The Hague, The Netherlands. Exhibitions at Nest focus on specific themes, investigated through the work of local, national and international artists. www.nestruimte.nl STAND F3

ANAHITA RAZMI: DO FARD In Iran, the Do Fard (Two Individuals) brand has been producing underwear for over fifty years, sold through a little shop in the Tehran bazaar. For Art Brussels, the State of Concept booth will be a fully-functioning Do Fard sales stand, offering a unique product range of imported ‘Made in Iran’ underwear. Anahita Razmi’s project, for Art Brussels, simulating the original shop, first appeared in Berlin just after the Iranian nuclear deal was signed, promising new possibilities for cultural and economic relations between the West and a sanctioned country. The website, www.dofard.com, a Facebook page and an advertising campaign with models wearing the new Iranian apparel are all part of the project. It challenges how the West sees the Other as different cultural, ethnological and national identities confront one another, through politics, immigration, the refugee crisis and the economic turmoil they have caused within the borders of Europe. The launch of a completely unknown Iranian product across borders and continents challenges cultural identities and stereotypes inherent to the shop’s concept. It offers space for discussion of expectations in relation to Iran, the logic of global trade, the Iranian economy and the nuclear deal, as well as the economics of artistic production and art fair sales. State of Concept is a non-profit gallery dedicated to international contemporary artists who are not easily accessible to Greek audiences. It focuses on creating dialogue with audiences, arising from questions concerning the contemporary state of our human condition: society, politics, economy, psychology and technology. www.stateofconcept.org STAND F1

EXCLUSIVE EXHIBITION AT ART BRUSSELS

Cabinet d’Amis: The Accidental Collection of Jan Hoet is the flagship artistic project for Art Brussels 2016. It is an exhibition showcasing selected works from the collection of the late Jan Hoet. Hoet (1936-2014) was an internationally acclaimed Belgian curator who first became known for his ground-breaking exhibition Chambres d’Amis in 1986, for which artists were invited to create works for 50 private homes in Ghent, which were then opened to the public for several weeks. Jan Hoet subsequently curated Documenta IX in Kassel and many other important exhibitions, including Over The Edges (2000). Jan Hoet was also the founder of S.M.A.K., the Museum of Contemporary Art in Ghent. In his native Belgium, Hoet was one of the few people in the contemporary art world to become a household name. His dedication and passion for art was unequivocal, and his quixotic, opinionated, defiant and larger-than-life character contributed to his legendary, sometimes controversial reputation. It is no exaggeration to say that as a curator he was one of a kind: someone who follows his heart and his instincts, wears his opinions on his sleeve, and displays the same dedication to art and artists whether curating a major museum exhibition or just a modest show in a small Flemish village. Jan Hoet’s personal collection is highly idiosyncratic. It is the result of relationships forged with artists throughout his career, not a strategically assembled accumulation of works of art. Many works were gifts from artists, resulting in a collection joined not by design or intent, but almost by accident. Indeed, one might use the word ‘collection’ with some hesitation. The word itself implies something with a certain structure, whereas these works came together in an organic way, with no deliberate intent to form ‘a collection’. The result is eclectic and whimsical, highlighting the nonconformist character of its owner.

Cabinet d’amis: The Accidental Collection of Jan Hoet


There are over 500 works in Jan Hoet’s personal collection, most modest in scale. Cabinet d’Amis features works by established, internationally acclaimed and lesser-known artists from Belgium and further afield, and Jan Hoet worked closely with many of them. This selection pays tribute to Jan Hoet. It also provides insight into his artistic vision and his relationships with artists, with documentation, photographs, letters, correspondence with artists, notes, postcards, artists’ sketches and drawings, collages, objects, faxes, videos and texts from his personal archives, which in turn give unique insight into his curatorial trajectory, and which have never before been accessible to the public. Highlights include a series of letters from James Lee Byars in the artist’s signature handwriting, and a number of sketchbooks by Panamarenko.

Cabinet d’Amis also includes a series of photographs by Dirk Pauwels, from the collection of S.M.A.K. Pauwels accompanied Hoet, recording the course of his various projects, ultimately building an archive of thousands of photographs documenting Jan Hoet’s career from 1982 onwards. For Art Brussels 2016, Cabinet d’Amis offers visitors a unique opportunity to enter the private artistic universe of Jan Hoet, while also providing insight into the close personal affinity he shared with artists. Jan Hoet’s was a life lived with, in, for and through art. Artists include: Richard Artschwager, Joseph Beuys, Guillaume Bijl, Christian Boltanski, Michaël Borremans, Ricardo Brey, Marcel Broodthaers, Cai Guo Qiang, Thierry De Cordier, Raoul De Keyser, Wim Delvoye, Jessica Diamond, Marlene Dumas, Jimmie Durham, Rodney Graham, David Hammons, Kris Martin, Bjarne Melgaard, Mario Merz, Marisa Merz, Cady Noland, Panamarenko, Richard Prince, Charles Ray, Luc Tuymans, Patrick Van Caeckenbergh, Royden Rabinowitch, Andy Warhol.

The exhibition scenography is by the Brussels-based artist Richard Venlet. For Cabinet d’Amis, Venlet conceived a circular space that functions both as a cabinet / gallery and as a panopticon through which to view the artworks. The viewer enters through a corridor and experiences the exhibition as a diorama, completely surrounded by the works. The work of Brussels-based artist Richard Venlet combines sculpture, art history research, exhibition design and architecture. Venlet creates ‘environments’ out of spaces. His refined abstract aesthetics and the pragmatism of his oeuvre reach far beyond a simple formal reference to Modernism and Minimalism. Working in context-specific situations, he has produced numerous installations that incorporate the work of other artists and collaborators, forming composite and circuitous environments that are often whimsical reconfigurations of architectural space. Richard Venlet was born in Australia in 1964. He lives and works in Brussels. His work has been shown in numerous national and international galleries and museums, including: SMAK, Ghent, M HKA, Antwerp, BOZAR, Brussels, the Biennale of São Paulo, the Sydney Biennial, MACBA, Barcelona, the Henry Moore Institute, Leeds a.o. The exhibition is made possible through the generous support of Anglo Belge Special Risks and Stibbe. Anglo Belge Special Risks is an established insurance broker. Stibbe is a leading independent law firm. THE EXHIBITION IS ACCOMPANIED BY AN EXTENSIVE PROGRAMME OF TALKS. FOR THE FULL PROGRAMME SEE PAGE 37. HOTEL DE LA POSTE, ADJACENT TO THE FAIR GROUNDS

The exhibition is curated by Katerina Gregos, Artistic Director of Art Brussels, with the kind co-operation of the family of Jan Hoet and S.M.A.K., Ghent. It is on view at Hôtel de la Poste, in the Tour & Taxis complex, exclusively during the days of Art Brussels (21-24 April).

ottomura Each year, Art Brussels selects one or more artists to conceive and design its creative campaign. The 2016 campaign has been entrusted to the Belgian collective, Ottomura. Ottomura was founded in 2010 by three photographers, for the purpose of facilitating and producing work on assignment, together or individually, without it interfering with their personal photographic practices. The collective focuses on image-based media, with an emphasis on photography of all genres, including exhibition documentation, fashion, photojournalism and commercial work. Ottomura’s campaign images were produced at Art Brussels’ new venue at Tour & Taxis (a spectacular, late-19th-century industrial building) with a view to highlighting the features of the magnificent architecture. The Ottomura artists engaged in a series of in-situ experiments with coloured smoke in the building’s empty spaces, creating an atmospheric, ethereal environment – latently expectant – which comes to life between 21 and 24 April, 2016.

Complex Computational Compositions For the past fifteen years, Rafaël Rozendaal has used the internet as his own private gallery, creating websites that exist as pure works of art. They can be viewed by anyone who happens upon them. Rozendaal researches such themes as rhythm, continuity and the emotional impact of movement and colour. He uses a minimum of elements to achieve simple, perfect harmony. At the entrance to Art Brussels 2016, Rozendaal presents a special montage of his websites, juxtaposing some of his classic sites with new creations. Viewers experience an ever-changing display that has been custom-made for the fair’s entrance. Visitors flow through the corridor in concert with the movement of the works. Born in Amsterdam in 1980, Rafaël Rozendaal is a visual artist who uses the internet as his canvas. His websites attract over 40 million unique visits per year. His artistic practice also includes installations, lenticular paintings, textiles, lectures and haiku. Rozendaal’s works have been presented on video walls at Times Square (2015) and included in the Internet Pavilion at the Venice Biennial (2009) and the Valencia Biennial (2005). Recent solo shows include MU Artspace, Eindhoven (NL, 2015). He lives and works everywhere. Rafaël Rozendaal is represented by Steve Turner, Los Angeles. Art Brussels thanks Vidi Square for their generous support of this project. ENTRANCE HALL

hugo roelandt DAILY PERFORMANCE IF YOU DO EXACTLY (OR NOT EXACTLY) WHAT WE TELL YOU TO DO, YOU’LL CREATE YOUR OWN PERFORMANCE This will be the first re-enactment of Hugo Roelandt’s performance If You Do Exactly (Or Not Exactly) What We Tell You To Do, You’ll Create Your Own Performance, first staged at the Performance Art Festival at the Beursschouwburg, Brussels, in 1978. In this performance, a group of musicians are pulled up and the audience has to ‘play’ them by blocking the spotlights focused on them. The public thus creates its own piece according (or not) to the rules set out by the artist. The re-staging is a collaboration between Objectif Exhibitions (Antwerp), Beursschouwburg (Brussels) and Art Brussels, and forms part of the Hugo Roelandt Research Project – a collaborative initiative between Objectif Exhibitions, M HKA, Argos and the Royal Academy of Fine Arts Antwerp. It coincides with the first of a two-part exhibition devoted to Hugo Roelandt, curated by Marc Holthof at Objectif Exhibitions. Hugo Roelandt (Aalst 1950–Antwerp 2015) was a photographer and installation artist, and one of the leading Belgian performance artists in the 1970s. In the 1980s, He collaborated with many artists of his generation such as Anne-Mie Van Kerckhoven, Narcisse Tordoir and Ria Pacquée. Later he moved into installation art with his Post Performance Projects, before returning to photography. ENTRANCE DISCOVERY SECTION

The ING Lounge is in the context of next, Peter Kogler’s immersive exhibition at ING Art Center. Kogler’s lounge is a 3D installation where visitors relax and exchange information. It is a complete environment: walls, floor and lightweight inflatable furniture. All share the same motif of computergenerated pipes or tubes, a recurrent theme and key element in the modernist repertoire, a significant source of inspiration for Kogler. For three decades, Kogler has used a reduced artistic vocabulary: ant, brain, globe, light bulb and grids. He used the tube motif in different ways at Vienna’s Karlsplatz subway station (2012) and the Zagreb Museum of Contemporary Art (2014). Whether alluding to Fernand Léger or symbolically using the tube as a sign of progress, Kogler overwhelms space as only a Viennese can – deeply familiar with the Wiener Secession and its concept of the total work of art. In the ING Lounge, visitors stand or sit, part of a work that is experienced physically, like being in a film. Kogler’s friend Kurt Ryslavy humanizes his installation. Each day, from 4 to 7 pm, Ryslavy presents his performance, Based Less on Profit than on Substance. He offers a glass of wine from his export company, The Austrian Wine, revealing the mechanisms of the art world. They are not always what we expect. Buy a ticket for Art Brussels and receive a free entrance to Peter Kogler’s exhibition, next, at ING Art Center, Place Royale, 1000 Brussels, through 19 June, 2016. ING LOUNGE

fÉdÉration wallonie-bruxelles FOES

FOES, the exhibition project by Sébastien Reuzé, curated by Emmanuel Lambion and Maïté Vissault for the booth of the Fédération WallonieBruxelles at Art Brussels, indirectly subverts the paradigms of visibility and openness which are the main features of a contemporary art fair. As an artist Reuzé is engaged in an ongoing research into supports, formats, techniques and display devices. This contributes to the enhancement, in his work, of the subjective and expressive potential of daily life and of landscape as a genre. For this project he draws his inspiration from J.G. Ballard’s Vermillion Sands, and revisits the tradition of the photographic road movie, staging the fictitious character of a military person from the US Air Force in a strange, ‘unheimlich’ and liminal environment, situated between real and virtual world.

TOUR & TAXIS BACKUP LAND RELIC - LOU DELAMARE, 2014 > 2016 In February 2014, while workers were raking up the low-relief plant cover of the wasteland around Tour & Taxis, Lou Delamare cut out by hand a 21m square of this wasteland. She then reconstructed, true to the original, this sample which had been extracted from the landscape. This “soil scalp” dissociates the territory from the terrain, and the soil from the land surface. This work is an “extracted reality” which has been taken out of its context, nature and own reality. This landscape sample, the only live memory of the site, has become a nomadic plot of land which travels and mutates according to the nature of the places that welcome it. In 2016 it will be returned to its promised land... Curators: Yves Bernard & Stéphanie Pécourt. With the support of : BAD, Halles de Schaerbeek, iMAL, IBGE, Extensa, Fédération Wallonie-Bruxelles.

cabinet d’amis: Readings and conversations

Whereas the readings operate as spontaneous interventions in, and interpretations of the exhibition, thinking through actual collected material, the conversations take up a broader discursive position addressing issues around institutional frameworks, whether private or public, for collections and archives. They also mark the launch of the first issue of CAVE, a new series of publications on how to think and practice contemporary collecting, co-published by Sternberg Press & CAHF. www.cavecave.org Readings: Six Readings of Cabinet d’Amis The Readings take place in the exhibition Cabinet d’Amis, Hôtel de la Poste, adjacent to the fair grounds. Conversations: Four Topics on Contemporary Collecting The Conversations take place in the debate room next to the VIP Lounge, Hôtel de la Poste, adjacent to the fair grounds.

Friday 22 April 1:30 pm Reading #1: Hans Martens Hans Martens is art historian and since 2011 director of the Academy of Fine Arts in Mechelen. Together with Jan Hoet he curated Saint-Jan at the Saint-Bavo Cathedral Ghent (2012) and was Artistic Advisor for The Sea – Salut d’Honneur Jan Hoet (Ostend 2014).

TALKS

Art Brussels and Contemporary Art Heritage Flanders (CAHF) co-organize a series of conversations and readings on contemporary collecting, in the company of the exhibition Cabinet d’Amis: The Accidental Collection of Jan Hoet curated by Katerina Gregos in a scenography designed by Richard Venlet.


2:30 pm Conversation #1: The Politics of Collecting Ann Demeester (director Frans Hals Museum | De Hallen Haarlem), Sara Weyns (director Middelheim Museum) moderated by Koen Brams (The Mobile and Temporary Studio for Research & Production) The models for recounting an art-historical narrative have fallen into disrepute. How does this affect processes of inclusion and exclusion - for ‘making collections’ as well as ‘showing art works’? Which strategies can be designed to cope with the problem of linear historiography? 4 pm Reading #2: Henk Visch Henk Visch is an artist born in Eindhoven, the Netherlands. He represented the Netherlands at the Venice Biennale in 1988 and was invited in 1992 by Jan Hoet for Dokumenta IX where he presented his life long project “noch einmal”. 5 pm Conversation #2: The Collection in Residence Léna Monnier (Kadist Art Foundation) & Jens Maier-Rothe (Beirut) moderated by Pieternel Vermoortel (CAVE editor-in chief) In 2014, Beirut organized a residency for the collection of the Kadist Art Foundation in different institutions in Cairo. Léna Monnier and Jens Maier-Rothe re-engage with the project.

2:30 pm Conversation #3: Architecture for Collections Kersten Geers (OFFICE Kersten Geers David Van Severen), Richard Venlet (artist) and Maarten Liefooghe (Architecture & Urban Planning Department, Ghent University) moderated by Koen Brams (The Mobile and Temporary Studio for Research & Production) How to design a museum building as architecture for a collection instead of exhibition infrastructure? Kersten Geers, Richard Venlet and Maarten Liefooghe reflect on different scenarios and discuss the potentialities of the permanent collection display. 4 pm Reading #4: Denys Zacharopoulos Denys Zacharopoulos is an art historian born in Athens, Greece. He was the Co-director of Documenta IX, Kassel and is currently artistic director of the Municipal Museums and Collections of the City of Athens.

5 pm Conversation #4: Collecting Knowledge: the Case of the Archive Katerina Gregos (independent curator, artistic director Art Brussels,) and Philippe Van Cauteren (artistic director S.M.A.K. Ghent), in conversation with Koen Brams (The Mobile and Temporary Studio for Research & Production) Who should take responsibility for the repositories of information, knowledge production and art history embedded in archives around artists, curators, and exhibitions? Which role can the museum play?

Sunday 24 April 2 pm Reading #5: Jan and Marianne Hoet Jan Hoet Jr. and Marianne Hoet both grew up in a home where art was present. At home it was never a big subject, but indirectly, art was always there, just by the intensity of contacts with artists, for example. As children they met Joseph Beuys at home on the couch, with their father they ate cake with Panamarenko, and they often visited S.M.A.K., the museum where their father worked. In the exhibition Cabinet d’Amis, surrounded by the works left to them by their father, they share all these memories and encounters, which enabled them look at art and artists in a different way. Jan Hoet Jr. cannot live without art. He studied photography in Ghent and Brussels. As a gallery owner, curator, and professional planner he knows the art world from the inside. He wants to share this inimitable view on art and life with the public. Marianne Hoet studied law at the University of Ghent. In June 2008 she started working forthe Belgian branch of Christie’s auction house in Brussels. She is currently International Director, Head of Post-War & Contemporary Art, Christie’s, Northern Europe.

BLACK MARKET talks programme


Friday 22 April 11 am Candidatul La Presedintie: Postspectacle, a workshop. The names of the entities are often the symptom of a problem or a question: they may function as a reaction, as almost empty concepts in the beginning, triggering a practice afterwards. Postspectact Postspectacle is or could be. In Postspectacle, a constant practice is to introduce strange feedback loops, altering, expanding or breaking some of the implicit conditions at work in the respective situations.

Saturday 23 April 12 am Black Market of Conflicts: Sam Hardy Sam Hardy is an archaeologist and cultural heritage worker, specialising in the illicit trade in antiquities, the destruction of cultural heritage, and the politics and ethics of archaeological work in conflict zones and divided societies. For Black Market he gives a lecture tracing the route of the ISIS-destruction and the illegal trading of Syrian and Iraqi antiquities in Palmyra and Mossoul. 5 pm Between Hacking and Slinking: Stephen Wright, Marisa Morán Jahn and Paul Falzone ‘A hack is a kind of beveled cut with an axe. Not a clean slice, but an oblique chop – opening something up in a way that’s not easy to repair’ writes Stephen Wright in his Toward a Lexicon of Usership. Marisa Morán Jahn and Paul Falzone disclose the project Video Slink Uganda – involving “slinking” experimental videos by contemporary African diasporan artists onto bootleg DVDs and circulated to millions of viewers via Kampala’s black market cinema – and the strategies adopted in its making.

With Claudio Pazienza’s L’argent raconté aux enfants et à leurs parents, Adam Leech’s Speech Bubble and Sarah Vanagt’s Money Exchange, in which children are playing, performing a money transaction which stays at the edge of white and black, showing their contiguity. Followed by a conversation with Sarah Vanagt. 3 pm Best Regards From Charles Filch (2007-onwards), performance by Dora García, with Peter Aers. Since his disappearance at the end of the real-time theatre in public space The Beggar’s Opera in Münster Sculpture Projects in 2007, Charles Filch has been doing some rare, but very remarkable appearances here and there, under the name Best Regards From Charles Filch.
