Antithesis, the Future of the Image.

client:
Michiel Vandevelde, Vooruit Arts Centre
date:
March 2015

We are surrounded by images. How these images are edited, manipulated and represented influence the way we perceive the world. It influences our ideas of the body, history, future, what we perceive as being fake and being real. Antithesis, the future of the image is a quest for alternative cultures of the image. The performance is based on the principle of 'reappropriation': the reuse of certain pre-existing materials. During the performance reading material was projected on a huge backdrop. At the end spectators received more reading material in form of a small booklet; with texts by Adam Curtis, Kristof Van Baaerle and Jana Tupivic.
