CONTOUR 7, a Moving Image Biennale in Mechelen, will
open to the public from Saturday 29 August until Sunday 8 November 2015.
This edition bears the artistic mark of curator Nicola Setari who has
chosen Fooling Utopia as its motto..
CONTOUR 7 is dedicated to Thomas More, the English humanist and statesman.
During a visit to Flanders, which included a stop in Mechelen in
the summer of 1515, More wrote the bulk of his book on the ideal
commonwealth, the island of Utopia.
The Biennale will feature new and existing work by over twenty international
artists spread across six venues in the City of Mechelen:
Academie Mechelen, Cultural Centre Mechelen, the Vlietenkelder,
city museum Hof van Busleyden, Kazerne Dossin and De Noker.
