Super! Financial & communication director:
Inge Vanluyd
Super! Collaborators: Aneleen Praets, Eva Peeters

With the old prison functioning as central location, exhibitions in the main art centres and the so-called Catwalks or routes throughout Hasselt, Super! is a real city project. Furthermore, there are links to other cities in the Euregion through collaborations with the Academy of Fine Arts and the Jan Van Eyck Academy in Maastricht as well as the Ludwig Forum in Aachen.

Super! focuses on the cross-over between contemporary art, fashion & design.
The old prison, a weird example of panoptical architecture, is the central location with a ticket shop, an Illy Coffee Lounge, workshops, an exhibition and the opening party.
Selected artists:

Steven Brouns, Geoffrey Brusatto, Glamorisundead, Bart Lens, Pieter Geenen, Bren Heymans, Hectica, Tevona, Pieter Vermeersch, Koen Vanmechelen
Interior Design, Cultural Centre
An exhibition which brings interior design into our personal/private living environment. The typical architecture of the cultural centre is seen as a machine with different flows of people and moments of movement which influence our personal system.
Selected artists:

Gabriela Fridriksdottir, Peter Hulsmans, Haraldur Jonson, Erki De Vries, Charles van Otterdijk, Michaël Verheyden
For crying out loud, Fashion Museum
The subject of this exhibition is clothing as a messenger by means of text, logos or specific designs, focusing on the attention that artists pay to fashion.

Selected artists:
Elke Boon, Alicia Framis, Lucy Orta, Krist Gruijthuijsen, Roberta Miss/Nurse, Designers against Aids, Cora Roorda van Eijsinga, Andrea Schneemeier, Kimiko Yoshida
Alchemy, Jenever Museum
The exhibition revolves around a concept that comes up within the permanent exhibition and forms one of the basic mysteries around jenever: alchemy. The secret aura which surrounds alchemy, which brings together and mixes opposites, is the basis of a project that winds its way throughout the museum.

Selected artists:
Koen Vanmechelen, Anne-Mie Van Kerckhoven
On People and Things, Z33, curators Jan Boelen and Koos Flinterman
As part of Super!, Z33 organises an exhibition tour in the small houses of its Beguinage around the relationship between free and applied arts. Industrial activities provided a considerable contribution to the living costs of the Beguines. Their closed courtyards are also true examples of installation art avant-la-lettre.

The show consists of a broad selection of loaned pieces and two works that have been commissioned from Krijn de Koning and Lucy Orta.

Other artists in the show:
Giovanni Amandini, Karin Arink, Aldo Bakker, Douwe Jan Bakker, Jurgen Bey, Merijn Bolink, Andrea Branzi, William Cobbing, Christophe Coppens, Catharina van Eetvelde, Tracey Emin, Mark van der Gronden, Voebe De Gruyter, Cecile van der Heiden, Rini Hurkmans, Richard Hutten, Hella Jongerius, Anne-Mie van Kerckhoven, Fransje Killaars, Joris Laarman, Suska Mackert, Cathalijne Montens, Ravage, Guy Rombouts, Maria Roosen, Marc Ruygrok, Han Schuil, Raf Simons, Kate Street, Studio Job, Jeroen Verhoeven, André Verroken, Carel Visser, Martin Visser, Luc Vleugels, Marina Yee
