Aan het woord [Spoken Word]

At the invitation of the Coppejans Gallery, artist Marie-Sophie Beinke (b. 1990, Munich) presents a series of performances with contributions by Gerard Herman, Peter Fengler, Mekhitar Garabedian, Fien Maris & Evelin Brosi, Laurence Petrone and Guy Rombouts. The programme is introduced by her own performance, Für Bernd Lohaus [For Bernd Lohaus], during which she will recite poetic writings by Lohaus, selected by Anny De Decker, Stella Lohaus and herself. Over the years, Bernd Lohaus (b. 1940, Düsseldorf) often read to the public from his own texts, as he did on several occasions in Galerie Zeno X for example, on Sundays at 11 a.m. sharp, as though it were a mass. But also: in the Frankfurter Kunstverein, the Van Abbemusem, Galerie Grita Insam in Vienna, Micheline Szwajcer Gallery, the literary café of Galerie Drieghe in Serskamp and LLS 387. Language and words play an important role in the practice of all the artists participating in Aan het woord. They are presenting performances, actions and readings on three Sundays at the end of August and the beginning of September. Beinke asked me to write something on the occasion of this programme because I knew Lohaus well. (She never met him herself; he died in 2010).
