andcompany&Co. as foreign corespondent at the KUNSTENFESTIVALDESARTS 07
A dream. A red dream. A dream with a long beard … 160 years ago in Brussels, Karl Marx & Friedrich Engels wrote the Communist Manifesto, enduring years of exile crucial to the development of Marxist thought and the organisation of communist movements across the world. “A spectre is haunting Europe: the spectre of communism…”
It is time for a brief ‘herstory’ lesson with artists from andcompany&Co. Their auto-mobile archive for utopias, lost and found – a red minibus equipped with a table and camping chairs – will be travelling around the city during the month of May. andco will bring Brussels to life from a new-old perspective while elections are in full swing in the city: EURO-Communism. The members of the Committee will be at the KUNSTENFESTIVALDESARTS Centre at the kaaitheater from Wednesday till Saturday; come and meet them to share the stories of utopia collected during the day. And on the last night it’s EUROPARTY time!
