M – Museum Leuven announces Blijven Kijken / Ce qui nous regarde / Dropouts

Submitted by on February 12, 2013 – 8:26 am

M – Museum Leuven presents Blijven Kijken / Ce qui nous regarde / Dropouts an exhibition on view February 14–May 12, 2013.

In the exhibition Blijven Kijken / Ce qui nous regarde / Dropouts, artists experiment with materials from their medium. They search for the moment at which images appear: in the encounter of two pixels, in the introduction of a new technology, in a particular way of listening or in exploring a medium. Other artists will show where images disappear: due to an excess of pixels, the democratisation of a technology, a deafening sound or eliminating a feeling.

Blijven Kijken / Ce qui nous regarde / Dropouts is situated in the tension between politics and aesthetics. It starts with the selection of an aesthetic and ends with a form of politics. These media artists also reflect on the materials they use. Each in their own way, they explore the boundaries of representation: the (in)visible, the other, the personal, that guarantees maximum involvement.

With works by Herman Asselberghs, Anouk De Clercq & Jerry Galle, Mekhitar Garabedian, Pieter Geenen, Elias Heuninck, Wim Janssen, David Larcher, Gorik Lindemans, Renzo Martens, Els Opsomer, Stefaan Quix, Femke Snelting, and Els Viaene & Duncan Speakman.
