About Schönfeld Projects
Open Saturday 2 - 6 pm (during Projects)
Schönfeld Projects in Antwerp is an extra location of the Schönfeld Gallery based in Brussels. The gallery, founded in 2018, zooms in on young and older, known and less known Belgian and international talent. She supports the dynamics in the gallery-rich Rivoli Building at collective openings and events, and she participates at foreign fairs and expositions. Schönfeld Projects opens connections to the Antwerp Art scene. It is a big space for projects of the Schönfeld Gallery: curated exhibitions, events, artist talks, short-term exhibitions, during art events in Antwerp and so on. A playing field with many possibilities.

FROM A TO Y AND BACK AGAIN
moine de la non existence de la pensée
Sylvie Janssens de Bisthoven
Vincent de Roder
Yvonne De Grazia
The participating artists are listed with their first names (and not with their last names. A stands for Andreas and Y for Yvonne).
- Most of the artists live in Brussels.
- telling the true story ‘from A to Z’ would have been ideal if the ‘whole’ story was told.
It stops at Y.
- Andy Warhol’s iconic autobiography ‘From A to B and Back Again. The philosophy of Andy Warhol’. One could even have imagined A for Antwerp and B for Brussels and back again.
Warhol’s diary talks about love, food, beauty, fame, work, money, success which perfectly reflected his view on the golden sixties…
These 60’s are far removed from our 2020 world which in return does echo this immense acceleration of events and exponential confusion…
The actual confusion and resulting questions are slowly worked away by sculpting, colouring, imaging, painting printing till the magic gradually takes over.
I hate Sundays: there’s nothing open except plant stores and bookstores.
- A. Warhol
