De Lange Zaal: Drawing as Practice
Drawing is the most direct means of visualizing an idea or thought. It is the first step to creation in the form of a notebook, a sketch, a series. Sometimes intuitive as the impetus for something else, sometimes thought through as an artistic medium in itself.
Drawing can function as process thinking, as a research method, as a visual output.
For the students of the Royal Academy of Fine Arts Antwerp, drawing is a way of unlocking, discovering and questioning images and thoughts.
Hal Venusstraat: Occupied City Remix
(as part of Paul van Ostaijen Leeft & Occupied City 100!)
Is Paul Van Ostaijen still alive with today's digital generation or is his poetry dead letter?
Is he already an antique or still avant-garde? In what way does the experimental élan of Occupied City resonate in the creations and the experiments of our 21st-century designers and artists-to-be?
The Royal Academy of Fine Arts Antwerp has a connection with PVO. Van Ostaijen's partner in crime, Oscar Jespers, studied sculpture there, and Panamarenko and Hugo Heyrman studied there just before they named their first happening 'Occupied City' in 1965. This took place in the Groenplaats and in the Letterenhuis.
Our lecturers allowed the form and content (in the broad sense) of Bezette Stad to seep into a few assignments by students of Graphic Design, among others. You can see the first results in the context of our Infodays. It is up to the visitor to judge whether Van Ostaijen is still alive.
Ba3 Graphic Design students created a "translation" of Paul van Ostaijen's hundred-year-old avant-garde book Bezette stad (1921) into a contemporary medium. They used animation, film, song, recitation, performance, and sound poetry to bridge the time gap and make Van Ostaijen reverberate and appear in the present day.

Tempel: IMMERSIVE CUBE / Doors of Perception
