Els Dietvorst, winner of BelgianArtPrize 2021
"Els Dietvorst is a committed artist, concerned with social issues, which she addresses by seeking to reveal the connections between people, situations and environments. Her work is rooted in observing, listening and caring". It is in these terms that the Jury presented its winner, at the end of a process that originally brought together 238 artists.
Organised since 1950, the BelgianArtPrize underlines the artistic relevance, innovative vision, diversified artistic practice and distinct visual language of the winning artist. Els Dietvorst's work, which includes sculptures and installations, drawings, writings and visual installations, is an illustration of this. Outside the institutional and commercial artistic circuits, she finds the coherence necessary for the full development of her project. Els Dietvorst analyses the human condition and through her creations she addresses themes such as life and death, fear, alienation and desire, and the "stranger".
The winner of the BelgianArtPrize is invited to create an art project presenting new work at an exhibition to be held at BOZAR in the autumn of 2021.

As a continuation of its Performance & Performativity exhibition presented this year at BOZAR, BAUKUNST is taking its project to the Solo Galerie in Paris from 16 October to 17 December. The items on display will offer a composite view of recent projects, while highlighting the kaleidoscopic collaborations that have taken place in recent years. Videos, models and photographs will highlight the work of BAUKUNST as well as its identity, which brings together art and science.
Over the coming months, Bebat is forming a partnership with Gallery of Futures, an exhibition around climate and ecology running until April 2021. As part of this collaboration, Bebat has asked the young artists’ collective Gilbard to design a battery disposal box.
A void. That is what Frie Leysen has left in the Brussels, Belgian and international art landscape. Take away a hyphen or trait-d’union as she liked to see herself, and you are left only with loose syllables. Frie Leysen united both people and worldviews. She helped to inspire the generations of festival makers and theatre directors that followed. She remains an inspiration. In these turbulent times, when people disappear behind masks and walls, it is more important than ever to keep fighting for art and artists who extend the boundaries, especially for the new generation. We must do all we can to protect the international circulation of artists and art.
On 26 September, 1 October, and 10 October 2020, the Music Fund, a Belgian humanitarian organisation that supports music schools and socio-artistic projects, will organise a major collection of wind instruments in partnership with BOZAR.
