Kolektiv ATLAS / ATLAS Collective
The ATLAS Collective brings together fifteen artists, critical thinkers and cultural workers from Belgium. ATLAS is their platform where socially engaged and collaborative art practices are discussed in the context of specific sites and audiences as well as changing power dynamics and political shifts. In a time of worsening working conditions, ATLAS offers the space for artistic work and reflection, shared meals, and having fun together with curators, young artists, students and cultural workers.
At the City of Women Festival, the ATLAS Collective would like to weave new alliances. The collective’s residency with members of artistic and socially engaged initiatives in Ljubljana will conclude with a public multimedia happening featuring performative, visual, audio, and text-based works as well as conversations and food.
ATLAS is co-created by May Abnet, Leontien Allemeersch, Dominique Collet, Evelyne Coussens, Akın Fatih De Vos-Şahan, Elly Van Eeghem, Samah Hijawi, Marieke De Munck, Niké van Os, Chris Rotsaert, Andy Sarfo, Lieselot Siddiki, Michiel Soete, Robin Vanbesien and Matthias Velle, always in collaboration with local partners and artists.
