BORG Biennale Antwerp
'Let's gentrify everything'
Sept 2 - 11, 2016

For its second edition, BORG has decided to radically question its identity as a biennial event for contemporary art in Borgerhout, a local district of Antwerp that harbours a burgeoning amount of art galleries and project spaces, but also has to deal with different socioeconomic strata and minorities. Is it possible to embed a art biennial in such a local context without any contradiction? Can BORG be critical of gentrification processes and still avoid hypocrisy?

Silent Circle
Cinema Zuid Antwerp

Chinese Whispers (Also know as: whisper down the lane, telephone, pass the message, etc. It's a game in which one person whispers a message to another, which is passed through a line of people until the last player announces the message to the entire group. Errors typically accumulate in the retellings, so the statement announced by the last player differs significantly, and often amusingly, from the one uttered by the first.)
PARTICIPANTS: Sofie Nagels, Lukas Verdijk, Vesna Faassen, Cerena Aksungur, Ersi Varveri, Margot de Clerck, Pallavi Verma, Maika Garnica, Darcey Bennett, Mathieu Verhaegen, Iljen Put, Joren Thys, Alix Manon, Caroline Kolkman, Katerina Psaradeli, Andrea Zrno en Jan Gordts, Nico Dockx.
