BAM, Flemish institute for visual, audiovisual and media art is proud to announce ‘ARTS FLANDERS 08: VISUAL ARTS’ and ‘ARTS FLANDERS 08: AUDIOVISUAL ARTS’. These publications and related CD-ROMs provide a selection of the emerging generation of visual and audiovisual artists in Flanders/Belgium.

‘ARTS FLANDERS 08: VISUAL ARTS’ presents a selection of emerging visual artists in Flanders. It includes a lot of surprising work by artists with great potential. This art scene is contextualized by means of an introductory text, written by Eva Wittocx and Marc Ruyters, that outlines the recent developments against a historical and political background.

‘ARTS FLANDERS 08: AUDIOVISUAL ARTS’ focuses on Flemish audiovisual arts. The international breakthrough of Flemish films is recent and its power consists mainly of the diversity of forms of expression that is used to tap all the possibilities provided by the audiovisual domain: fiction, short film, animation, documentary films and digital productions. An interesting introduction written by Stoffel Debuysere & Erik Martens puts these developments in a larger context.

‘ARTS FLANDERS 08: VISUAL ARTS’ and ‘ARTS FLANDERS 08: AUDIOVISUAL ARTS’ are part of ‘ARTS FLANDERS 08′, an international promotional campaign launched by the Flemish Minister for Culture Bert Anciaux. This campaign offers information about 150 artists, ensembles or companies from five different artistic disciplines: architecture, audiovisual arts, visual arts, music and performing arts. The four centres of expertise for the arts acted as guarantors for the selection, these are the Flemish Architecture Institute (VAi), the Flemish institute for visual, audiovisual and media art (BAM), the Flemish Theatre Institute (VTi) and Flanders Music Centre.
