Rrrrom… Theo van Doesburg revisited
Jaap Blonk / Joachim Badenhorst / Marc Matter / Hans Richter / Viking Eggeling

In a boisterous evening packed with offbeat film, music, performance, and poetry, BOZAR turns the spotlight on the work of I.K. Bonset, the literary alter ego of the Dutch artist Theo van Doesburg. The sound artist Jaap Blonk sends his Dadaist verses hurtling through space and captures them on a 7″ record pressed specially for the occasion. With his solo project Voiceover, Marc Matter (a member of Durian Brothers and Institut für Feinmotorik) uses records and turntables to manipulate the human voice. Along the way, saxophonist and clarinettist Joachim Badenhorst will improvise on Van Doesburg’s austere paintings. Avant-garde films by Hans Richter and Viking Eggeling (about whom Van Doesburg wrote in De Stijl in 1921) will throw light on an exceptionally creative period of European art history.

Theo van Doesburg: a new expression of life, art & technology

Travel back to the beginning of the twentieth century with Theo van Doesburg and inhale the revolutionary atmosphere of the avant-garde in the exhibition Theo van Doesburg: A New Expression of Life, Art and Technology.

Having founded the art movement De Stijl in the Netherlands with Piet Mondrian in 1917, Van Doesburg set off across Europe to promote their abstract visual language internationally. In Paris he encountered the art of the Dadaists and began writing Dadaist poetry himself. In Weimar he presented his new awareness of beauty to the Bauhaus architects. He travelled round Europe and made his pioneering visual language appear not only in paintings, but also in buildings, furniture and interiors. [source:bozar.be]
