European forum for young artists
moving image + performance
Students from ten art schools from eight European countries have all worked on a common theme: the multiple relations between moving image and performance. Passage, initiated by Contour Mechelen (BEL), is the first networking event of its kind. Among the many candidates, the jury has selected thirty four talented young artists. For these, Passage provides an excellent opportunity to make their entrance on the European art scene.
The Beursschouwburg in Brussels and Contour and nOna in Mechelen join forces and present a variety of works: videos, installations and performances that include moving images. A particular feature of Passage is the fact that eight participants have developed their work in the studios of FLACC in Genk.
The participating art schools are:
Sint Lukas Brussels and Sint Lucas Ghent (BEL), ZKM Karlsruhe (DEU), Goldsmiths College London and Metropolitan University Leeds (GBR), AKI Enschede (NLD), Ecole Supérieure d'Art Clermont-Ferrand (FRA), Academy of Fine Arts Vilnius (LTU), Academy of Arts Tallinn (EST) and University of Art and Industrial Design Linz (AUT).
It is the intention to organize this European forum every two years, centralized each time in another European country and organized by another institution as project leader.
