Flemish Minister for Culture Bert Anciaux has launched ARTS FLANDERS
08, an international promotion campaign for about 150 artists, ensembles
or companies from the different artistic disciplines: architecture,
audio-visual arts, plastic arts, music and performing arts. Five
publications and related DVDs or CD-ROMs each provide an exciting sample
of old names and young talent. For each discipline, the recent trends
are discussed as well.

Since the mid-90s,
Flanders has seen a remarkable rise and flourishing of contemporary
plastic arts. Many artists, among whom Luc Tuymans, Wim Delvoye, Jan
Fabre, Anne-Mie Van Kerckhoven, … settled at the international top.
This growth can mainly be attributed to the passion and entrepreneurial
spirit of both artists and organisations and museums. For the overview
book, the BAM centre of expertise, Institute for Plastic, Audio-visual
and Media arts, made a representative selection of the emerging
generation of plastic arts in Flanders. A lot of surprising work by
artists with great potential.
