Onthaasting: About Spare Time and Slower Worlds
Curated by Niels Van Tomme and Jan Van Woensel

Onthaasting is a mental diversion through the use of recreation as an “escape” from the perceived unpleasant aspects of daily life. It takes place on the outskirts of contemporary life: on mountaintops, in wide-open plains, in churches, in landscapes, in gardens … but most of all in the mind. The exhibition presents Belgian contemporary video artists within this conceptual framework.

Artists: Guillaume Bijl, Jacques Charlier, Cel Crabeels, De Brassers, Messieurs Delmotte, Gery De Smet, Harald Thys & Jos De Gruyter.

Onthaasting – The Exhibition as a State of Mind

I don’t leave many responses, however i did a few searching and wound up here Onthaasting: About Spare Time and Slower Worlds | No Time to Lose: A Search for Work / Life Balance. And I do have a couple of questions for you if it’s allright.

Is it just me or does it give the impression like a few of
the remarks look like coming from brain dead individuals?

😛 And, if you are writing on other online social sites, I’d like to follow everything new you have to post. Could you make a list of every one of your communal sites like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?
