Divided into five administrative regions with a total of
3.9 million people, the Meuse-Rhine Euregion comprises
of three countries and languages. This Euregion is not
so much shaped by its political borders, but rather by its
inhabitants, who redefine the borders by living, studying
and working here.

The partners of Very Contemporary
relate to each other through the
language of contemporary art.
Due to the geopolitical border situation, a range of
reputable institutions for contemporary art can be found
in the Euregion. These institutions have in common a
peripheral geographical position, situated outside such
traditional cultural centres as Amsterdam, Brussels
or Cologne/Düsseldorf. This has encouraged the
development of an individual and innovative approach
to contemporary art, one that reflects the dynamic and
interwoven history of the tri-border area around Aachen,
Liège and Maastricht, allowing an insight not only into
the local contemporary art scene, but also into European
culture and society.
Very Contemporary, the network currently made up of
14 Euregional contemporary art institutions, emphasizes
the rich possibilities offered through the common
language of art: within the field of contemporary art, the
VC-network reflects on the ways of living together in a
defined space, rethinking Europe on a Euregional scale.
The border region of Belgium,
the Netherlands and Germany
is their training ground.
Very Contemporary is a
tri-national, cross-border network
that organises itself to learn
from each other by exchanging
knowledge.
Within its dynamic
infrastructure tools and
projects are developed
to connect audiences
and link art to other
domains including science,
technology and ecology.

Very Contemporary functions as a training ground
where participating institutions meet one another and
learn from each other. The evolving and dynamic network
provides an infrastructure where sustainable synergies
are developed and generated. Through crosslinking
content, marketing and art education, VC reinforces the
institutions and boosts the impact of the various venues,
by communicating their specific qualities and underlining
their strengths.
VC was founded in 2012 when the first VC-brochure
including six initial partners was published on the
occasion of Manifesta 9 in Genk (BE). Since then the
brochure has been published twice-yearly, making the
brochure you're now holding in your hands the ninth to
be distributed on an euregional, national and international
level. Alongside this analog tool, the VC-website
www.verycontemporary.org, the monthly VC-newsletter
and the social media presence of VC informs readers
about current exhibitions and events.

During the Very-Contemporary-Weekend that has already taken
place for the past three years in late autumn, each institution
realises art educational activities in accordance with their
exhibitions, while a connection is offered between the different
venues via Contemporary-Art-Bustours. The CABs offer a practical
solution, since public transportation in the border region
remains quite difficult. But it also goes further and effectively
links audiences to new institutions, since it encourages visiting
new venues on one's own terms and time. By activating crossborder exchanges, VC strengthens the cultural infrastructure of
the Euregion, with the CAB acting as an already well established
symbol.
Very-Contemporary-Weekend
On Saturday 12 and Sunday 13 November 2016 you get

Very Contemporary contributes
to the development of the MeuseRhine Euregion as an international
centre of expertise in the field of
contemporary art.
Eventually, the VC-network will be transformed from a distinct
network of contemporary art venues to a finely-woven and more
complex sphere, by multiplying and assembling the connections
of art to science, technology and ecology, with the aim to
maintain and expand the network, continue with research and
exchange activities carried out in the past. A sphere, that will
resonate on an international level, since its inner identity will be
directly linked to the quality of its external connections, posing
the question whether a European identity can be formulated via
a cultural vehicle.
Alongside the tools that have already been implemented, several
stepping stones will be set out towards functioning together as a
non-hierarchical sphere with art as its interdisciplinary link:

On Thursday 10 November 2016 the first VC-conference will
take place, to which you are warmly invited.

The partners of VC are currently working on a cooperative
art manifestation that will function as a catalyst to establish
innovative strategies for sustainable, cross-border cultural
planning and organisation in the Meuse-Rhine Euregion in the
long run.

Bureau Europa is a cultural institute, that presents exhibitions, lectures, workshops
and other activities in architecture, urbanism and design. We aim to advance
knowledge production and talent development in design and architecture while also
engaging with a broad audience on the subject of understanding of their designed
environment. We articulate these ambitions through cultural projects at our institute
and in public domain. We focus primarily on a contemporary and social agenda of the
Maas-Rhine Euroregion and Europe as a whole.

SOFT STRUCTURES – TEXTILE TURNS
Textiles are important in the contemporary art
world, perhaps as never before. The current shifts or turns
in the use of textiles deal less with material aspects of
the medium than with the temporal folds of concepts,
metaphors, societies and economies. Textiles – ‘soft structures’ – have played an important role in economical and
colonial history. As markers of trade they have intervened
in the ‘hard structures’ of capital and politics, and they
have initiated fundamental changes on social and economic levels. Textiles tell stories of commerce, of labour, of
capitalism, of digital and social networks.
Curator: Evelien Bracke
Artists: Rossella Biscotti (IT), Sarah Browne (IE), Hana
Miletic (BE/HR), Emilie Pallard (FR) & Niels Heymans

CIAP is an independent association for contemporary art. CIAP was founded in
1976 and its operating methods are very comparable to the German model of the
Kunstverein, a model that is not well known in Flanders. CIAP aims to respond to the
local art scene in a 2-way direction, on the one hand by presenting form within the
local context towards a larger (eu)regional public and on the other hand by boosting
the local artists, art-professionals and public by showing innovative international
artistic developments.

DIRK DIETRICH HENNIG
JAMAIS-VU – JEAN GUILLAUME FERRÉE
ikob - Museum of Contemporary Art in Eupen
presents the unjustly forgotten œuvre of Jean Guillaume
Ferrée (1926-1974). The discovery of this artist, who
worked within the vivid circles of FLUXUS and Nouveau
Realisme, would have been an art historical sensation
and the visitors would have met one of the most dazzling
artists of the 20th century - if - but only if - this artist
had been living in reality. In fact, he is an invention of the
German artist Dirk Dietrich Hennig, who invented life,
works and reception of Jean Guillaume Ferrée with all its
tiny little details.

ROGER GREISCH
99 YEARS – 99 COLOURS
Roger Greisch who would have been aged 99 this
year is one of the best known and most popular painters
in East Belgium. His art is until today marked by the presence of colours which he used to make both abstract and
figurative works while cultivating a language of colour of
his own.
2017
→ For 2017 ikob – Museum of Contemporary
Art announces a theme for its exhibition program:
RESSENTIMENTS. Ressentiments – resentment/s in
English – will be elaborated in political terms as well as
in terms of aesthetics, i.e. artistic practices. It is of course
a topic especially relevant to today's society. Yet the focus
is less on aspects of racism and discrimination but on
resentment as a common denominator in interpersonal
relations.
→
→
The ikob – Museum of Contemporary Art in Eupen is located in the German- speaking part of Belgium, close to the German and the Dutch border. Its program focuses
on emerging and leading contemporary art through the constitution of a significant
collection (in progress) and temporary exhibitions (in dialogue). Functioning as a
discursive platform for contemporary art with its multidisciplinary and thematic
exhibition program and concerned with critical and socio-political issues, the ikob
attempts to reflect the matter of the frontier.

Set up in 1979, La Châtaigneraie occupies a small manor house (1830-1840) bordered
by age-old chestnut trees. Exhibitions range from a retrospective of a historical nature
to the most contemporary expression, passing through all the techniques. In this way,
La Châtaigneraie confirms its vocation as a place for promoting artists as well as the
wish to create a place for meetings and awareness. The Centre publishes historical
works and monographs.

DIALOG: LEOPOLD-HOESCH-MUSEUM UND DAS
WALLRAF
Together with the Wallraf-Richartz-Museum in
Cologne, the Leopold-Hoesch-Museum will present a joint
exhibition dealing with provenance research. With the
Washington Principles of 1998, a pledge was made to seek
solutions for restituting works found to have been confiscated through persecution under the National Socialist
regime. The results of this research project are brought
together in this year’s winter exhibition.

Founded in 1905, the Leopold-Hoesch-Museum and its new extension, completed in
2010 by the architect Peter Kulka, features collections of modern works, including
examples of ZERO and Concrete Art from the Hubertus Schoeller Foundation and
contemporary positions from the Günter Peill Foundation. United under a dual museum concept, the Leopold-Hoesch-Museum and the Papiermuseum Düren have formed
a globally-oriented platform for showcasing contemporary art in the 21st century and
the cultural history of paper in form of interdisciplinary exhibitions.

MIES VAN DER ROHE. THE MoMA COLLAGES
A vast number of collages and photomontages by
the Aachen born artist will be shown for the first time.
They illustrate in a fascinating way his design principles
and at the same time constitute an autonomous body of
work. Influenced by Dada, Constructivism, and De Stijl,
Mies applied new techniques to visualize his artistic ideas.
These references, as well as contemporary positions will
play a vital role in the exhibition. In addition there is an
extensive framework program.

COLLECTION IN ACTION
The first exhibition of contemporary art De
Domijnen in the new Ligne building will be a retrospective (a selection) of the complete Sittard-Geleen collection
which consists more than 1.100 pieces from the last
decades from names as Marijke van Warmerdam, Norbert
Fiddlers, Joan van Barneveld, Suchan Kinoshita, Liza May
Post, Pipilotti Rist, The Yes Men, Basia Irland and many
others. It will be a very interactive set up in which art is
unpacked and unrevealed by employees and visitors.
Visitors can advise about the set-up of the exhibition.
Art will be restored live in the hall. Artists are asked
to comment, reflect and discuss their ‘old’ art with the
visors. What is actual or what has changed. Also there are
meetings, workshops etc. in the exhibition area. Amateur
artists will be asked to reflect on the exhibition by making
their own pieces. The exhibition will be built around one
central piece which will be exchanged three times in the
period:
− from 4th September – London Calling from Jota
Castro about democracy and freedom (of speech)
− from 2nd October – Iceberg & Palm Trees from
Mark Dion about nature, ecology and sustainability
− from 6th November – Breaking & Fixing from
Serge Onnen about new perspectives and
worldviews.

NAK Neuer Aachener Kunstverein is one of the youngest institutions of its kind in
Germany; a private non-profit association for contemporary art in the tradition of
the German Kunstverein model. NAK was founded in 1986 as a late echo of the 1964
Fluxus festival, with Joseph Beuys and Wolf Vostell as centre protagonists at the local
university in Aachen. The spirit of this moment has since been source of commitment
to contemporary art.

MANUFACTUUR 3.0
Digital revolutions, ecological awareness and
shifts in the fields of work and labour encourage us to
rethink the traditional industrial production model.

to work around alternative production scenarios. The exhibition functions as a production platform, continuously
in progress. This dynamic exhibition shows the changing
role of the designer and artist as active producers in a
city. With amongst others: Atelier NL, Andrea de Chirico,
Ben Hagenaars & Pablo Calderon, Jesse Howard, Eugenia
Morpurgo, Rotor, Kristof Vrancken.

art
does not need a common
language,
it is international
in itself.
The association of fourteen institutions in the Meuse-Rhine
Region is as contemporary as the art they present. Within a
radius of 100 km, the border region of Belgium, Germany
and the Netherlands offers a wide variety of exhibitions
and events, many of which can be visited in one day. The
venues each have a highly individual approach and present
art in the most appealing way: direct and inspirational,
reflective and atmospheric. This brochure wants to increase
the awareness of what this region has to offer in terms
of visual arts. It is published twice a year and gives an
overview of exhibitions and events.
Get a regular update on exhibition openings, lectures
and guided tours on:
