The title of the exhibition is derived from a song by the late Leo Ferré, and the works included bear references to time: either in a formal time-based, performative way or in direct reference to history, nostalgia, memory, reproduction and a fading in time. Encompassing artists from both a newer generation and those that are internationally recognized, the exhibition aims to give an overview of the Belgian contemporary art scene of today. This flourishing scene capitalizes on the country’s central location and its long history of artistic support to create a productive art center.
