Theatrum Orbis Terrarum is an ever-expanding collection of photographs, assembled since 2005, that observe how people organise their living environments across the world.
ART+CLIMATE=CHANGE 2015 is a festival of climate change related arts and ideas will include over 20 curated exhibitions at alongside a series of keynote lectures and public forums featuring local and international guests. These stimulating events will attract a broad audience and provide a clear space for the discussion of the challenges and opportunities, impacts and solutions, arising from climate change.
The focal point in this exhibition is the contemporary interpretation of present-day culture through representations of the landscape. The works shown in Out There, make clear how we look at the landscape, how the definition of a landscape through technique and media is stretched and how we use the landscape as metaphor for current issues, be they social, political or aesthetic.
Participants: Céline Butaye, Alice De Mont, Marjolijn Dijkman, Hedwig Houben, Bie Michels, Bas Schevers, Adrien Tirtiaux, Kristof Van Gestel, Herman Van Ingelgem
