This year sees the first ‘Mind the Book’, the successor to ‘Het Andere Boek’, with a focus on ‘the world’. In this connection, a number of Belgian artists invited by Jef Lambrecht, including Ria Pacquée, Anne-Mie Van Kerckhoven, Charif Benhelima and Guillaume Bijl, will be showing a work on the theme of ‘the Orient’ at the M HKA. The works from the collection shown with them are by artists from ‘the East’ in the broadest sense of the term: the Caucasus, India, China, Iraq, Egypt etc.
