Komplot is a curatorial collective (of variable composition and condition since 2002) concerned with nomadic creative practices and trends of specialisation. Projects such as Midi Zuid (on gentrification and speculation), Vollevox (on the voice in contemporary art) or Architecture of Survival (on ephemeral architecture) explored new terrain in relation to objects, spaces, artists and the public. Komplot conducted extensive research into post ’68 collaborative art practices in Belgium; organising seminars and making two documentary films. Komplot now hosts The Public School Brussels, a platform open to creative and participative contributions in all fields of knowledge and experience. Newly installed in their venue next the Wiels, Komplot produces exhibitions, films, books and an annual magazine titled Year.
The collective will work at HIAP for a week. Their residency in Helsinki will finish with an opening at SIC on 23 August. Nine days afterwards the collective will work in Brussels and create another exhibition for Komplot, to be opened on 6 September. Both exhibitions will run in parallel for approximately two months, creating a mirroring situation between the two European capitals.
