Created in 2007, SoundImageCulture is a Brussels-based art workspace organizing a yearly nine-month programme for artists, filmmakers and social scientists to develop artistic projects operating in the intersection between anthropology, documentary and contemporary art. Bringing the participants to interrogate – formally and ethically – their relation both to their audience and to their subject. In this discursive context projects are guided by (inter)national coaches.
María Palacios Cruz is the curator of this exhibition. She presents a selective survey of the work produced during the first five editions of the programme. Also films made by the coaches will be presented, next to a medialibrary in which the visitor can consult the processes of the SIC participants.
An art workspace is focused on assisting the development of projects, hence on artistic processes. Such an organization is often not public or transparent. In the light of this exhibition, several public activities will be organized to invite the visitor to participate.
