The first Triennial for Contemporary Art, Fashion and Design is a real city project, with the old prison functioning as central location, exhibitions in the main art centres and in the so-called 'Catwalks' or routes throughout the town. Furthermore, there are links to other cities in the Euregion through collaborations with the Academy of Fine Arts and the Jan Van Eyck Academy in Maastricht as well as the Ludwig Forum in Aachen.
First Triennial for Contemporary Art, Fashion and Design
With the old prison functioning as central location, exhibitions in the main art centres and the so-called "Catwalks" or routes throughout Hasselt, Super! is a real city project. Furthermore, there are links to other cities in the Euregion through collaborations with the Academy of Fine Arts and the Jan Van Eyck Academy in Maastricht as well as the Ludwig Forum in Aachen.
Super! focuses on the cross-over between contemporary art, fashion - design.
The old prison, a weird example of panoptical architecture, is the central location with a ticket shop, an Illy Coffee Lounge, workshops, an exhibition and the opening party.

'Interior Design', Cultural Centre
An exhibition which brings interior design into our personal/private living environment. The typical architecture of the cultural centre is seen as a machine with different flows of people and moments of movement which influence our personal system.

'For crying out loud', Fashion Museum
The subject of this exhibition is clothing as a messenger by means of text, logos or specific designs, focusing on the attention that artists pay to fashion.

'Alchemy', Jenever Museum
The exhibition revolves around a concept that comes up within the permanent exhibition and forms one of the basic mysteries around jenever: alchemy. The secret aura which surrounds alchemy, which brings together and mixes opposites, is the basis of a project that winds its way throughout the museum.

On People and Things, Z33, curators Jan Boelen and Koos Flinterman As part of Super!, Z33 organises an exhibition tour in the small houses of its Beguinage around the relationship between free and applied arts. Industrial activities provided a considerable contribution to the living costs of the Beguines. Their closed courtyards are also true examples of installation art avant-la-lettre.
The show consists of a broad selection of loaned pieces and two works that have been commissioned from Krijn de Koning and Lucy Orta.
