Two Brussels institutions, Argos and ISELP, have teamed-up to organise a large-scale exhibition on the theme of what community means in the modern day, what thresholds must be crossed and how we define ‘community’. Professor of Film & Media Arts Esther Johnson will feature in this dual exhibition contemplating the implicit complexity of the theme of community, defined by four axes of urbanity, sociability, politics and environment.

Esther’s films Alone Together, the Social Life of Benches and Hinterland are included in this exhibition, curated by Ive Stevenheydens & Maïté Vissault.

Opening 22 September – 23 September 2017
Runs until 17 December 2017
