Tuesday, Sep 1, 2020 – Sunday, Sep 6, 2020, 3.30 pm – 4.30 pm

With her performative work It’s a Tragedy Brüssels-based artist Laure Prouvost not only explores the boundaries between personal and public space but also highlights the possibilities of analog and digital surveillance! Disregarding the title of the work the artist looks here to a refined sense of humor and the aspect of confusion by intertwining everyday situations of city life with surprising, theatrical escapades.
