The name OUT OF SIGHT reflects both the physical and metaphorical state of the organisation. The venue is on the fringe of the city of Antwerp, in a residential area outside the inner ring. Metaphorically, OUT OF SIGHT aims to find a potential hidden within what we often perceive as different, marginal or even unwanted. There is room for the ephemeral and the ambiguous. A space where the poetic and the political can meet, within contemporary art.
As a small scale organisation it is easier to stay independent. This allows for a self-critical, flexible and experimental approach. The program is build around international cooperations among artists, curators, researchers and the public at large.
OUT OF SIGHT was founded in 2018 by Dušica Dražić, an artist and curator from Belgrade, living in Antwerp since 2014 and Wim Janssen, an artist from Antwerp.
