Art fairs are for art what porn is for erotica

Frank Vande Veire, on the work of Guillaume Bijl

 

The 2012 edition of POPPOSITIONS took place in Bruxelles Congrès, a still-functioning commuter station which turns into a cultural centre at nights and weekends.

This peculiar building, nowadays national monument protected, was built in 1952 by modernist architect Maxime Brunfaut. The station, now infrequently used by commuters, was taken over by young people that under the auspices of a cultural organisation host an array of quality films, parties and exhibitions in partnership with Jeunesse et Arts Plastiques.
