RESIST! The 1960s protests, photography and visual legacy presents some of the most iconic images of the 1960s movements that shook the world and influenced contemporary history. The project sets the tone of the Summer of Photography 2018 focusing on the theme of revolt, and marking the fiftieth anniversary of the students protests that erupted in Paris in May 1968.
Underpinning the concept of this exhibition is the idea of ‘lens of resistance’ as a socio-political filter adopted by the image-makers. As such the exhibition will also include representations of aspirations to freedom, human rights and equality that were the object the 1960s protests and, in many instances, remain ideals worth protecting in the face of the troubled time the world is facing today.
The exhibition Somewhere in between brings together the multiple realities of art practices from all over Europe. It is both a meditation on the identity of East and West and an attempt to gather stories, experiences, relations and encounters from a wide range of artists, curators and other engaged individuals. BOZAR gives carte blanche to five artistic constellations. Three Brussels-based art spaces (Établissement d’en face, Komplot and La Loge), a group of Curatorial Studies students (KASK, Ghent) and curator Michal Novotny who, in collaboration with Kim Contemporary Art Center (Riga) and Bunkier Sztuki (Kraków), embarks upon a subjective Eastern European journey in his exhibition Orient, the New East Artists from the CEE region. These alliances are indicative of today’s European art scenes where artists roam freely, without the geographic restrictions or institutional constraints that once defined the continent.
