ARTEFACT: The Act of Magic | STUK - House for Dance, Image & Sound | Leuven, Belgium | 21 Feb - 9 March 2017 | participating artist

< < < studio >

ARTEFACT is a themed exhibition and festival on contemporary visual arts, current events and societal challenges. In 2017, ARTEFACT looks at the Act of Magic. What does magic mean today? Which role does it play as a social phenomenon? How is it used as a metaphor? And how do contemporary artists tackle the subject? From poetry to strategy, from magical object to obscure systems, from harmless distraction to manipulation: the artists in The Act of Magic investigate what enchants us today.

Participating artists: Jonathan Allen, BCL, Eric Arnal-Burtschy, Melanie Bonajo, Jens Brand, Center for Tactical Magic, Marjolijn Dijkman, Tim Etchells, Verena Friedrich, Goldin+Senneby, Femke Herregraven, Hollington & Kyprianou, Liz Magic Laser, Shana Moulton, Tobias Revell, RYBN.ORG, Suzanne Treister, Troika.
