More about Crossing Informations #6 : THE ACADEMY AS AN ALTERNATIVE ?

Today, the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp finds itself more or less ‘ squeezed ’ between 350 years of history and an unspecified number of years to come. Turning the burden of tradition into a tool for the future might be one of the biggest challenges with which this academy now has to cope. Is it possible to combine the historical dimension of the Fine Arts Academy with the intention of becoming a laboratory for advanced artistic research ? Within the context of Crossing Informations #6, the publication ‘ Pro-Positions : Art and / as Education ’ (editors :
Els de Bruyn, Nico Dockx, Johan Pas) will be presented and activated by artists Jean-Baptiste Decavèle and
Nico Dockx.
