Art is Comic
23.06 - 17.09.2017

The third MIMA exhibition showcases the work of seven European artists, including four Belgians: Brecht Vandenbroucke, Mon Colonel & Spit, Brecht Evens, HuskMitNavn, Jean Jullien and Joan Cornellà. In this group exhibition, created in the immediate aftermath of the terrorist attacks in Brussels, they each, be it gently or mercilessly, poke fun at society in these dark times. 

The selected artists work in a variety of disciplines (strips, visual arts, illustration) but share a common message. This generation makes no distinction between the cover of a magazine and the wall of an art gallery. They live on social media, where all cultural content is treated on an equal footing. That gives them both independence and influence. Joan Cornellà’s impact on social media (5 million followers on Facebook) is greater than that of the Guggenheim, Tate Modern, and the Venice Biennale combined.

Humour is a measure of our freedom – a target of terrorism but also a weapon to fight it – and forms the common theme throughout this exhibition.
