EXHIBITION | Remembering Landscape
Oude Graanmarkt 5, 1000 Brüssel, Belgien
April, 26, to June, 9, 2019
Opening: April, 25, 2019, 05:30 pm
What is landscape today? We continue to imagine the aesthetic ideal comprising a variety of natural, agricultural and settlement areas. By contrast, modern landscapes are often ‘non-places’. Traces appear there – traces of industrial intervention, changing borderlines, flight, war or uncontrolled development and mining.
What remains is a remnant of nature, in which ruins bear witness to historical events. Barren landscapes that speak of past violence, degraded to material. At the same time memories (of war) are embodied visibly by 20th century architectural monuments.
The exhibition is a collaboration between the Museum für Gegenwartskunst (Siegen), the National Museum of Contemporary Art (Boekarest), the Centre for Decontamination (Belgrado), De Markten en de vzw Sint-Lukasgalerie Brussel and LUCA School of Arts (Brussel).
