Visual Arts Flanders 2012 - A cluster of visual arts exhibitions only one hour away from Brussels


Visual Arts Flanders 2012 is proud to present Beaufort04 (Belgian coast), TRACK (Ghent), VAF2012_figuur.jpgMiddelheim Museum 2012 (Antwerp), Manifesta 9 (Genk) and Newtopia (Mechelen). The convenient geographic location and the shared focus on contemporary art of these five events have triggered the creation of an international communication platform that comprehends all of these appealing events into one coherent cluster.

In 2012 Belgium's neighbouring countries also offer major happenings in contemporary art such as dOCUMENTA (13) (Kassel, Germany), London 2012 Festival - Finale of the Cultural Olympiad (UK), lille3000: Fantastic 2012 (France) and MONO 2012 (Centre Pompidou-Metz, France together with Mudam, Luxembourg).

Visual Arts Flanders 2012 is convinced that the high quality standard of each of the five exhibitions represented will persuade the professional and touristically inclined art visitor to also stop over in Flanders when travelling to art events in Belgium's neighbouring countries.

The five cities where the events take place are geographically positioned in the region of Flanders, no more than an hour away from Brussels and at almost equal travelling distance from the exhibitions in Belgium's neighbouring countries. Travelling to and from one of the five cities/areas is easy and fast by means of plane, high-speed train or car.
