In 2017 BOZAR LAB issued an open call for innovative companies, start-ups, artists and researchers to reflect on how new technologies and applications could add to the experience of the exhibition Theodoor van Loon.

The proposals from Dries Depoorter and Yiannis Kranidiotis were finally selected from among more than 30 international submissions. The media art of Depoorter is concerned with privacy, the Internet, online identity and surveillance, and has already been exhibited at the Barbican Art Gallery (London), the Mutek Festival (Mexico), Ars Electronica (Austria) and the Athens Digital Art Festival (Greece). Media artist Yiannis Kranidiotis explores the borders between science and art, creating spaces and experiences in which sound and light interplay. His work has already been presented at the NY Media Center (New York), the FILE (Sao Paulo, Brazil), the B-Seite Festival (Germany), ISEA (2016 Hong Kong, 2015 Vancouver) and the LUNDA Gallery (St. Petersburg, Russia). Each of them is now working on a new creation that will be presented during the exhibition Theodoor van Loon, a Caravaggist painter between Rome and Brussels (10.10.18-13.01.19).

With the support of: Fonds Baillet Latour & The A.G. Leventis Foundation.

  • 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.
