On the occasion of fifty years of avant-garde art in Antwerp, various aspects of the Internationaal Cultureel Centrum (International Cultural Centre – ICC) are highlighted in a series of exhibitions. The third part of this programme focusses on video. In the early 1970s, the ICC was one of the first places in Belgium to feature video and film activities. In 1974, Flor Bex also founded the first Belgian video studio for artists, Continental Video. In addition to presentation and production, the ICC offered a platform to think and talk about video in the visual arts.
This presentation showcases the work of five pioneers: Lili Dujourie, Dan Graham, Lea Lublin, Ludo Mich , Marie-Jo Lafontaine. It testifies to the fun the artists had with the new medium during the 1970s, as well as showing the early discoveries they made using it.
