ADA will take a trip to Antwerp to see the exhibition Animism, hosted by the Museum of Contemporary Art (M HKA) and Extra City. The exhibition is curated and organised by Anselm Franke, Edwin Carels and Bart De Baere.

The project approaches the concept of animism – coined by 19th century anthropologists in the context of the colonial encounter – from a contemporary perspective. It addresses the current increase in interest in animism, which stems from a widespread re-visioning of modernity, by a reflection on aesthetic processes seen through the prism of an exhibition.
