Exhibition: Looking back – A video selection from the Argos Collection for Contour On Tour: Video art in the Flemish Parliament, Flemish Parliament, Brussels

Since the 1970s, Belgian video art has been internationally known for its avant-gardism, its eclecticism, and its multiple crossovers with other disciplines. In the past, but incontrovertibly also in the present time, Belgian artists have been pioneers in the use of the medium and the development of multifaceted registers thanks to the video techniques and their personal approaches. Although this selection represents only a small cross-section among thousands of titles archived at Argos, these programs try to illustrate recurrent aspects of the productions released during the 1970s and 80s. With: Jacques Charlier, Filip Francis, and Jacques-Louis Nyst.
