- In Short
According to Joost Elschot our Western European society is an organized structure in which we all neatly fall in line.
Failure and chance are being banned systematically. With his work, Elschot wants to show us how these issues are precisely what makes us into individual beings. He says: ‘Something we like to read about in comics, we are less prepared to allow into our own lives’.
By art interventions and installations, he provides a platform for the value of absurd directness that is generally only portrayed in comics.
Particularly inspired by the cheap eateries and shady bars of Antwerp – his current place of residence – he recommends the displayed artwork from his fellow artists.
