The Act of Breathing
Apr 29 – July 31, 2022
Horst / KANAL Centre Pompidou
Vilvoorde / Brussels, Belgium

This year, and for the first time, the opening of the Horst exhibition, titled The Act of Breathing, is coinciding with the three-day Horst Arts & Music festival, from April 29 – May 1, 2022. After the festival weekend, the exhibition reopens from May 12 – July 31, 2022. It marks Horst’s ambitions to further nourish exchange and inspiration between the worlds of music and art, that is also stimulated by welcoming an extra curator – Sorana Munsya will curate alongside Horst’s Evelyn Simons – and by collaborating with KANAL-Centre Pompidou to bring a challenging line up of artists to Belgium and with Cinematek for an extra muros installations and a film program.

The result will consist of 10 in-situ artworks by Maika Garnica, Kris Lemsalu, Soraya Lutangu Bonaventure & Ali-Eddine Abdelkhalek, Michèle Magema, mountaincutters, Anthony Ngoya, Benjamin Orlow, Leonard Pongo, Laure Prouvost and Pascale Marthine Tayou, all engaging with the architectural and symbolic character of the Asiat military base, while three other artists – Jean Kabuta, Mega Mingiedi, Agnès Lalau – come together at Cinematek to be in counterpart with a program of films curated by Monique Mbeka Phoba.
