Poppositions 2017 (6th edition)

Poppositions 2017 (6th edition)
The sixth edition of POPPOSITIONS, taking place from 20 to 23 April, will gather 21 galleries, project spaces and artist initiatives at the ING Art Center in Brussels. POPPOSITIONS is more than an art fair and aims to occupy an independent and critical position. It encourages new, experimental and innovative approaches to the art market and is both a curated exhibition and an ongoing critical dialogue. The 2017 edition is hosted at Hotel Coudenberg (ING Art Center). POPPOSITIONS is not looking to erect additional walls, but rather go beyond the esthetic of the white booth and respond to that which is given, to make an integral presentation in which matters coalesce and diverge.

POPPOSITIONS was established in 2011 as a counterpoint to mainstream art fairs, and has grown as the leading alternative market for contemporary art. In the past five years, POPPOSITIONS has been dealing with questions of artistic agency, self-organisation, cynicism and criticality in order to shape its profile within the cultural and economic landscape. With the leitmotiv of Don’t Agonize, Organize as a leading principle, the jury has sought for proposals that steer and reinvent the political imagination by proposing diverse forms of political opposition that are rich in alternatives, concrete in propositions, and delivered through everyday projects.
