'Rehabilitation,’ a term which refers to the renovation and the historical preservation of architecture in order to give it new life serves as a thematic red thread for this group exhibition that looks at how a generation young artists both confront and appropriate the legacy of utopian concepts of modernist architecture and design. The rehabilitated Blomme-building Wiels offers an ideal context in which to critically examine how modernism in architecture is a persistent reference for a number of artists born after the so-called 'death’ of modernist architecture. The resulting exhibition includes sculptures, films, collages, architectural models and installations.
Wiels is an international laboratory for the creation and the diffusion of contemporary art. Focusing on visual arts, but granting a particular attention to the crossings and interactions with other disciplines, the centre wishes to present contemporary art in all its diversity and to offer a permanent dialogue with the developments and the most recent debates of the art world.
