Kunstenfestival Watou 2020 will kick off early July displaying its corona proof open air exhibition of contemporary art combined with poetry, located in the marvelous landscape of Heuvelland, a region in West-Vlaanderen.
If you plan a visit I encourage you to walk and listen to the epistolary poem Vonken: in my opinion an incredibly mighty and now already classic written by Simone Atangana Bekono. A refreshing literary voice on topics of identity, racism, globalism and (post)-colonialism.
I had the honor to interprete Vonken for this occasion. Sound design is by Annick Lesage. Kunstenfestival Watou 2020 is curated by Chantal Pattyn, Benedicte Goesaert and Peter Verhelst – Photo by Gaby Jongenelen
