Holding Rehearsals

La Loge, Brussels
18 January - 7 April

Opening: 17 January

Through a series of audiovisual works, the exhibition 'Holding Rehearsals' traces a lived social infrastructure of care, solidarity, and struggle that addresses recent cases of police and state violence in the context of migration border controls in Belgium and France. Robin Vanbesien has organized hearings on the case of Mawda Shawri and other deadly Channel crossings, assembling the stories and reflections of resident activists - both documented and undocumented.
