In the project ‘The Ship of Fools’, curator Joannes Késenne brings outsider art into confrontation with insider art by contemporary artists. The artists form pairs: Koen Vanmechelen and Tinne Kers, Koenraad Tinel and Gaston Wuestenbergs, Fred Bervoets and Jos Holtappels, Arpaïs Du Bois and Patrick Peeters, Christina Mignolet and Angélique Vantuykom, Karl Philips and Marcel Houben. James Ensor is the shared source of inspiration for these artists. The artworks will be exhibited on the Oosteroever and in the city centre. ‘The Ship of Fools’ is an artistic and inclusive project in collaboration with O.666 and 't Leeshuus.
