With Revolting Times, Kunsthal Extra City brings four international artists to Antwerp. They each show one videowork, during one month. Dealing with the current juncture is a central theme in their work and is viewed from the past, present and future. Rather than observations, they are all videoworks in which artistic and collective gestures put the finger on the wound. The title Revolting Times expresses a rebellion, but also a recognition of its relativity, and of the reciprocity of history.
Note: the four video works in Revolting Times are independent and are presented here as four individual, consecutive solo projects. Their themes and approaches share many connections. Paying visitors will receive a voucher for a free return visit at a later date.
