Curators from both countries will travel the Netherlands and Belgium to visit institutions, meet art professionals and give a public talk
In September 2018 a group of curators from the Netherlands, Belgium, Denmark and Switzerland visited South-Africa (Cape Town and Johannesburg) and Zimbabwe (Harare and Bulawayo) during the Orientation trip organized by the Mondriaan Fund.
As a follow-up, a group of curators from both countries will travel to the Netherlands and Belgium to visit institutions, meet art professionals and give a public talk on their practise.
Their trip to Belgium is planned by Flanders Arts Institute in collaboration with Beursschouwburg, BOZAR Africa Desk and Africala and with the support of Flemish Government’s Department of Foreign Affairs.
On Friday 22 March the group will give a talk in Brussels at Beursschouwburg, during which the curators and the public will put their heads together and debate on the relationship between North and South in the art sector.
