Harlan Levey talks Moussism
Thursday 24 March
Starting at 8pm, entrance is free.
Location: The studio in the Van Abbe Museum
In the studio of Van Abbe Museum the American curator and writer Harlan Levey will tell us all about the Moussism. Soon a book of his will be published with the same title. In that book he will make a connection between formerly unaccepted movements in modern art, that nowadays are fully acknowledgeden art of now that is not always recognised as art. All of this with the rebellious motto: Mousse art looks like shit but tastes sweet.
Levey lives and works since a couple of years in Brussels, Belgium, as the editor in chief of Modart Magazine, and the driving force behind the No New enemies network. He specializes in Media Aesthetics, Action Based Practice, and is an expert in the area of Mousse Art.
MOUSSISM = a non-traditional community based movement, which is not limited to a period, place or classical notion of aesthetics, discipline, medium, ideology or style. In terms of art, it is a movement that presents work, which migrates in the viewer’s mind from shit to THE shit.
