Jimmy Kets director
On the occasion of the Spanish presidency of the European Council, Luis Buñuel’s cult film El Ángel Exterminador serves as the unifying thread for an unprecedented contemporaryart project. Nearly thirty of the leading artists in Spain today offer their own visions of claustrophobia in a confined,
almost oppressive, space.
In response, five unique performances explore confinement; there will also be an extraordinary “architectural spectacle”, while a director is given carte blanche - and Buñuel’s film will, of course, be screened too. For two whole months a window will be opened on contemporary Spanish art - on a scale greater than anything seen in Belgium since Europalia 1985!
