The exhibition Philippe Vandenberg. Molenbeek is an eyewitness report. It is made up of large and small observations on paper, spanning Philippe Vandenberg’s final years, which he spent in Molenbeek. In his drawings and assemblages, Vandenberg takes the viewer on a tour of burlesque Molenbeek: an imaginary site where personal and collective traumas become entangled with metropolitan problems and global conflicts. Through this satirical universe, Vandenberg exposes the recurring structures of oppression, fundamentalism and one-dimensional thinking. Molenbeek is the first solo exhibition of the late works on paper by Philippe Vandenberg (1952-2009).
