POPPOSITIONS Brussels | Five artists to open your eyes

Denouncing socio-economic inequalities, and the feeling of indifference they can provoke, on a contemporary art fair booth could seem incongruous – and should make you feel uneasy.

At POPPOSITIONS, the 26 participants – galleries, artist initiatives, project spaces, etc. – are invited to work on the theme of “acknowledging one’s privileges towards understanding the struggles of others, and giving space to social bodies that have been silenced, unacknowledged and underrepresented”.
