Art Festival Watou

29 June 2017

  • 4625 face
  • The 37th edition of the Watou Art Festival takes over the village situated on the French border. With “solitude and unbearable lonelines,” as the central theme we bring together collected stories of artists and poets. The visitors follow a trail along eleven locations and find a symbiosis of visual arts and poetry in, among others, a grain shed, a brewery cellar, the farms of a farm and a park.

    Karin Borghouts will bring a new presentation of het series ‘The house’ together with a text by Paul de Moor, author of the book ‘Mijn huis dat was’. Her work can be seen in a black room in the Festival House. Look here at a time lapse of the preparation at Watou.
