Ecce Homo

ECCE HOMO is based on a strong collaboration of Gallery GEUKENS & DE VIL with MARION DE CANNI?RE and Belgian art-critic ERIC RINCKHOUT.

‘The main goal of this exhibition is to explore the historical theme of the ‘Ecce Homo’ in a broad sense within contemporary art in Belgium.

‘We live in an era in which humanity and mankind are violated on different levels; more and more we are confronted by essential differences in the development and freedom of humankind in various parts of the world.

This exhibition wants to show how artists approach ‘la condition humaine’ of today’s world.

There are no restrictions regarding gender or race and all art disciplines are incorporated: painting, collage, drawing, sculpture, installation, video, photography and performance.

It was an intended decision to choose only artists living and working in Belgium with the exception of one artist that we could not ignore considering the subject: Philippe Vandenberg.
