INFINI 1-15 / scenery workshop
2015 & 2016 / KVS & MENNOMICHIELJOZEF VZW
The scenery workshop of the stage designer Joseph Wouters consists of a chaotic group of builders, thinkers, former sailors and a retired landscape painter. During the 2015-2016 season, they will simply use the ‘Koninklijke Vlaamse Kijkmachine’ for what it is supposed to be used: depicting other places. They enter into a dialogue with artists, scientists and journalists. Every talk with these correspondents produces an ‘infini’ – traditionally a backdrop on which a view is painted. Each evening consists of a series of sets that are displayed one by one: a series of attempts to unfold landscapes, as horizons for a world in which there is now barely room for imagination. How can we use delicate stage designs to shake up our view of the theatre and the world?
For INFINI, Thomas Bellinck created Simple as ABC #1: Man vs Machine, a theatrical essay about cutting edge migration technology.

FAIR FAIRE / auction
2015 / KVS & ONBETAALBAAR
In a race against the clock, in a proper workshop, DIYers, craftsmen, thinkers, artists and other creatives take up the economic challenge of transforming unwanted stuff into new objects with a new identity and their own story.
After a week of collecting, reflection, handiwork and exhibition, the objects are ready for a new owner. An officially licenced auctioneer offers them for sale to the highest bidder. The buyer takes home not only the object, but also the passport, which contains his name, as the proud owner.
