With a focus on the work of Peggy Ahwesh

Visite goes all out during the 11th edition of the festival by inviting the famous American video artist Peggy Ahwesh. In the 80's she started her career making feminist punk and amateur super 8 films. She is known for her use of a wide range of different technologies, methods and aesthetics and her work has been extensively shown at Centre Pompidou, MOMA, Guggenheim, Whitney Museum of American Art, Anthology Film Archives, New York Film Festival and now also at Het Bos in Antwerp. Ahwesh' films are accompanied by works by artists who have inspired her over the years and by films and performances by local makers who touch on similar themes with their work.

The programme includes intimate conversations between girls, woman and children about caring, sexuality and gender norms. You will be confronted with horror tropes that insinuate their way into our lives unnoticed and we’ll invite you to an extravaganza that will set your senses on fire



Visite is a production of De Imagerie, supported by Het Bos, SIC, Cinematek, KASKlezingen, zwartopwit duurzaam drukwerk, Vlaanderen/Verbeelding werkt & Nationale Loterij.
