El ?ngel Exterminador

On the occasion of the Spanish presidency of the European Council, Luis Buñuel's cult film El ?ngel Exterminador serves as the unifying thread for an unprecedented contemporary art project. Nearly thirty of the leading artists in Spain today offer their own visions of claustrophobia in a confined, almost oppressive, space.

An allegory of Luis Buñuel's film of the same name, the El ?ngel Exterminador exhibition explores the ambivalence between the visceral need to escape and the equally deep-rooted desire for isolation. When claustrophobia strikes, however, one has to adapt; indeed, learning how to live with alienating constraints becomes a matter of urgency. Through paintings, sculptures, photographs, videos, and installations, twenty-seven Spanish artists of our own time portray the notion of 'limit'. A veritable tableau vivant that has to be escaped from...

In response, five unique performances explore confinement and Buñuel's film will, of course, be screened too. For two whole months a window will be opened on contemporary Spanish art – on a scale greater than anything seen in Belgium since Europalia 1985!
