Aufgeschnittener Rotkohl auf einem Tisch. Daneben ist eine Handsäge platziert.

Featuring works by Hedwig Houben, Ives Maes, Rinus Van de Velde, Freek Wambacq, Dennis Tyfus and others.

Amsterdam, Antwerp, Brussels and Ghent are home to a vibrant young art scene whose artists frequently cross paths with their German peers, whether in the studios and art academies there or in Düsseldorf and Berlin. Though these artists have close ties to the artistic traditions of their native Belgium and Holland, the boundaries separating them are fluid. German-Belgian artist Felicitas Rohden, has worked as a curator since graduating from the Düsseldorf Kunstakademie in 2008. She visited the ateliers of her fellow artists in Belgium and the Netherlands, and along with Gertrud Peters, invited a number of sculptors and photographers to show their latest works at KIT – Kunst im Tunnel.
