This edition of CONTOUR is dedicated to Thomas More. Regarded by many as a martyr and by some as a monster, perhaps even as a philosopher or artist. Certainly he was a brilliant fool, ahead of his time. It was while visiting Flanders – he stopped through Mechelen – in the summer of 1515 that he wrote the bulk of his book on the ideal commonwealth, the island of Utopia.
All the works on show, many of them new productions, share the theme Monsters, Martyrs and Media and have in common the fact that they are inspired by utopias, monsters and martyrs of past and present.
Gilad Ratman will present his recent project, titled SWARM.
