Works from Atopolis. The exhibition is on display until October 18th at Manège de Sury and is a collaboration between Wiels and the museums of Mons (European Capital of Culture in 2015).

"The title alludes to the ideas of Edouard Glissant, the influential thinker of hybridisation and globalisation, who argues in favour of fluid identities, unhindered exchanges and an ideal cosmopolitan openness, which he calls the ‘Relation’, interconnected and radically egalitarian. Twenty-three artist temporarily install a proposal an atopolis, or a proposal for an ideal city, connected to everyplace, or anyplace."
