The game is up!
ART FOR SALE


festival 5 - 15 maart/March in Vooruit, Ghent - BE


Voor de tweede keer lanceert Kunstencentrum Vooruit<http://www.vooruit.be/nl> het internationaal festival The game is up!<http://www.vooruit.be/nl/series/37>, waarin we nagaan hoe artiesten codes en regels doorbreken of er de draak mee steken. In 2007 was het motto 'You are about to do something you shouldn't', dit jaar is de baseline 'Art for Sale'<http://www.vooruit.be/nl/series/37>. Van 5 t.e.m. 15 maart 2008 onderzoekt The Game is Up! de relatie tussen kunst en de alomtegenwoordige commerciŽle omgeving.

For the second year in a row, Vooruit Arts Centre<http://www.vooruit.be/en> will host The game is up!<http://www.vooruit.be/en/series/37>, an international festival for artists that break or mock the codes and rules. In 2007, we operated under the catchphrase 'You are about to do something you shouldn't' and this year 'Art for sale'<http://www.vooruit.be/en/series/37> will be our motto from the 5th until the 15th of March 2008. The game is up! will take a closer look at the relationship between art and consumerism.

De deelnemende artiesten zijn erg verschillend, maar ze delen een ambigue verhouding tot entertainment en commercie. Eerder dan kunstenaars die zich inhoudelijk en strategisch nadrukkelijk afzetten tegen het establishment of kunstenaars die verkoop en marketing (kritiekloos) omarmen om poen te scheppen, zijn we op zoek gegaan naar artiesten die de codes van de vermarkting op een dubbelzinnige wijze inzetten.

We have made a selection of very diverse artists, bound by a love for working with art and consumerism. Instead of choosing artists that radically condemn the establishment and capitalism in their strategy as well as in their subjects, or artists that embrace sales and marketing to make lots of money, we have picked artists that use the codes ambiguously. They acknowledge the effect growing consumerism is having on our lives and in their work they study this new reality.
