Year in review 2018

We skip this year, but in 2018 Bert Kruismans, Jan de Smet and Karl Meersman are working on a brand new theatre tour, looking back on past events in 2018.

Artist in residence

From September 8th untill December 30th, Karl will be ‘artist in residence' in Saint-Hiëronymus, a reknown psychiatric centre in St-Niklaas.
He will be working with residents two days a week. The central theme is ‘portraits'.

Insane Boundaries

Where do we draw the line between genius and madness?
A stigma-breaching project on art and psychiatry, organized by WILFORD X
Colloquium: March 10th, 2018, 16pm in CC Temse.



Until the end of 2018 Karl Meersman will be working on a totally new project.
With free work using different techniques, different formats and materials,
this is a visual research into the similarities between the Renaissance and today's world.
An exhibition and an art book will show the results.
