FANTASY and PERMANENT REVOLUTION
FANTASY intervention by Koen van den Broek
21.03 – 21.09.08
PERMANENT REVOLUTION insert by Sue de Beer
23.02 – 25.05.08
In addition to Van den Broek’s interventions into the collection, MuHKA now also hosts
Permanent Revolution, a video installation by Berlin-based American artist Sue de Beer [°1973] that is loosely based on the brief but turbulent history of the German Bauhaus. In De Beer’s free-form reconstruction of the school’s profound ideological antagonisms, the Bauhaus movement – portrayed here against the apocalyptic backdrop of the Great War which preceded it – sets off an ecstatic, psychedelic ode to colour, light and form. Permanent Revolution is shown in a custom-built white cube painted gold inside – a bizarrely monolithic, alien presence in MuHKA’s futuristic circular space which adds yet another dimension to the great Atlantic art dialogue that will be occupying MuHKA’s ground floor for much of 2008.
With works by Nick Andrews, John Baldessari, Charif Benhelima, Marcel Broodthaers, Wim Catrysse, Jan Cox, Luc Deleu, William Eggleston, Tracy Emin, Dan Flavin, Liam Gillick, Mary Heilmann, René Heyvaert, Peter Joseph, Donald Judd, Jan Kempenaers, Robert Mangold, Brice Marden, Gordon Matta-Clark, Paul Mccarthy & Mike Kelly, Bruce Nauman, Blinky Palermo, Perry Roberts, Edward Ruscha, Thomas Schütte, Mitja Tusek, Koen van den Broek, William van den Broek, Patrick Van Den Eynde, Wilfried Vandenhove, Jan Van Imschoot, Dan Van Severen, Jan Vercruysse and Jeff Wall
Angles, a publication by Koen van den Broek featuring texts by MuHKA curator Dieter Roelstraete and the artist himself, will be presented on the occasion of the opening of Fantasy.
