Filip Berte exhibits in Ghent
On the 24th of May, the big citybooks group exhibition will open in Brussels with work of Filip Berte, who took part as a photographer on citybooks Tbilisi. You can really get to know the work of Filip Berte in Ghent this spring and summer. From the 17th of May until the 4th of November, a spectacular exhibition will run at STAM: Filip Berte / The Graveyard – Steden in de marge (Cities at the Margins). Before this exhibition opens, from the 27th of April until the 17th of June, you can visit the installation Collective Memory Mass Grave at the Caermersklooster in Ghent. Here, Berte exhibits as the laureate of the Provinciale Prijs Beeldende Kunst 2011 (Provinces’ Visual Arts Prize 2011).
Together, the works in both exhibitions make up part of his large-scale undertaking Eutopia, an artistic research project in which his Tbilisi citybook also appears. Tbilisi is one of the cities in which he investigates contemporary European living environments with a focus on the geographical, political, historical and cultural contexts. You can listen to Filip Berte talk about Eutopia here.
