"Middle Gate Geel ‘13" Curated by Jan Hoet. Geel Belgium. Gasthuismuseum St.-Dimpna
September 28 - January 22 2013
MIDDLE GATE GEEL 13' tries to come to grips with the complex and multi-layered interaction between myths, psychiatry and the arts. Rather than pinpointing the differences, the exhibition undertakes to reveal the connections and links, commonplaces and parallels of these phenomena.
The historic and present-day context of the city of Geel, world-famous for its unique psychiatric care system based on home nursing, adds an extra dimension to this exhibition, so much so that the interaction between Geel and this exhibition will be palpable and visible in every aspect.
