CAPS - Kursaal-Oosthelling 8 , 8400 Oostende
Opening hours

On Friday, Saturday, Sunday from 2.00 PM - 6.00 PM



Ensor has always been a rebel, an elusive artist-anarchist and louse in the fur of the bourgeoisie. That spirit, that way of life inspired a lot of contemporary Belgian artists and, under the direction of curator Eric Rinckhout, the exhibition "Ensor en Sortie" focuses on those works. At the centre is the video work "James Ensor in Ostend ca 1920 "
by Guillaume Bijl, a 2000 mockumentary in which Bijl uses so-called found footage to fool the viewer and manages to make them believe that this is authentic archive footage from 1920.

With work by Nick Andrews, Yves Beaumont, Fred Bervoets, Guillaume Bijl, Vaast Colson, James Ensor, Werner Mannaers, Nadia Naveau, Guy Slabbinck, Luc Tuymans, Carole Vanderlinden, Jan Van Imschoot and Peggy Wauters, among others.
