LE FAUX SOIR

KIOSK was invited to participate in this year’s edition of Art Brussels in the not-for-profit section. KIOSK will present a series of four newspaper editions, one for each day of the fair, conceived by artists who have previously shown work at KIOSK.

The project Le Faux Soir takes its title from a one-off counterfeit of the French-language Belgian newspaper Le Soir. This ‘spoof edition’ was published on 9 November 1943 by the Belgian resistance organisation The Independent Front. Le Faux Soir humorously subverted the propagandist discourse of the occupying forces with the explicit aim of ridiculing them, distributing thousands of copies in the kiosks of Brussels.

Inspired by the story of Le Faux Soir, KIOSK has invited four artists to make a newspaper edition. In their practices, these artists engage with the relation between language, meaning and representation – often with a note of humour or irony. The artists often use the publication format in their practice, and some take up Marcel Broodthaers’s strategy of using fictional means to visualize hidden realities. The artists are: Mekhitar Garabedian, Rana Hamadeh, Sophie Nys, and Koenraad Dedobbeleer.

If you would like to have a copy of the newspapers, just send an e-mail to kiosk@hogent.be or visit our exhibition and get free copies at the counter.

Rana Hamadeh

The show A River In A Sea In A River will end with a closing reception at 6 pm and with the performance And Before It Falls It Is Only Reasonable To Enjoy Life a Little by Rana Hamadeh at 6.30 pm.

Inspired by Sun Ra's 1974 film Space is the Place, Oskar Schlemmer's 1926 Diagram for Gesture Dance and Paulus Fürst's 1656 engraving of Doctor Schnabel of Rome, this performance is an exhaustive deliberation on the notion and gesture of 'falling'.
