From 22 to 25, Jakob Van den Broucke (https://jakobvandenbroucke.be) and I walked from our homes to our Heimat, in Meerhout. This walk will ultimately lead to a public moment showing the work we created during and around this walk and this theme.

Video fragment filmed by Vincen Beeckman of me performing my Currency Polaroid Portrait Studio in the Heyvaert neighbourhood in Molenbeek/Anderlecht. First of a series of photographic interventions in that neighbourhood, which is known as the second-hand car export hub of Europe and the Middle East. Organised by Recyclart, flowers with te support of Bloomit Bxl and Laure D'Hoe.

To celebrate the first live show of Victor de Roo and Alex Deforce's Nachtdichter EP, we released two limited edition posters featuring polaroid photos I made of them and fragments of Alex' poetry. €10 each, mail if you would like one. Photo of his own bedroom, where his poster hangs, by Julian Devos.

Our dear friend Poesmans Vanderborght

In februari 2019 schreef ik elke donderdag een column in De Standaard. De vier columns zijn vier brieven aan een vriend, die samen één lange brief vormen. Lees ze hier: https://www.facebook.com/notes/kasper-demeulemeester/correspondentie/10156142622317828/

One part of my show at Recyclart in December consisted of a approximative recreation of my office environment at the 25th floor of the WTC tower, where I wrote and created most of the Phantasmata - Photographic-Therapeutic Walks. Behind my desk, I made an ‘inspiration wall’, using my own photos, risograph prints, an article by Koen Sels about Sol Lewitt and a graph by Sigmund Freud. It presented the mental context in which I conceived these Walks. At this temporary office, visitors could come and order their Phantasmata prints. .

The second part of my show at Recyclartbxl in December consisted of a projection room. In there was where the real magic was at, under the auspices of full moon wizard Maarten Lauwaert. This is where all the Phantasmata were shown, where people could choose their Phantasmata out of the hundreds that randomly crossed their eye. This is where people made their choices, sitting still, imagining themselves walking.

Limited edition zine with photos by me (and participants in my Photographic-Therapeutic Walks) and an amazing poem by Alex Deforce , screen printed at Chromodrome, Brussels. Anderlecht
