Your Absence was Noticed
Group exhibition & performance night
Saturday 20 August – Saturday 27 August 2016, A-Tower, Antwerp, Belgium
From 20 to 27 August 2016, the 23rd floor of the A-Tower is occupied by artists, activists and philosophers alike. In discussions and through photography, video, performance, painting, drawing and installation art, they work around the idea of melancholy as an activist stance against the strategies of conformism, positivism, populism and profitism that rule the world today. All work accumulates in a happening on Friday 26 August.
