Holding Rehearsals by Robin Vanbesien


As a visual artist and filmmaker, Robin Vanbesien explores modes of embodied knowledge and collective imagination engaged in social and political struggles. Through a series of audiovisual works, his exhibition Holding Rehearsals by Robin Vanbesien traces a lived social infrastructure of care, solidarity, and struggle that is addressing recent cases of police and state violence in the context of migration border controls in Belgium and France. 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.
