Bringing together a large number of artists, Regenerate offers a view of the current moment that is both joyful and critical, cautious yet hopeful.
Regenerate presents recent work made by artists in Belgium (with occasional sorties across bubbles and borders). Whether explicitly or indirectly, the selected works enact the revitalisation that art can offer. Focusing on recent productions, the project explores what has emerged from this period of unpredictability and seclusion, and how the pandemic and its ongoing impact are shaping our imaginaries.

Human society is strikingly resilient and has a remarkable ability to regenerate itself. After every cataclysm – whether man-made, natural or (as is usually the case) a combination of both – communities are eager to pick themselves up, dust themselves down and start again. This process of reconstruction is seldom without its upheavals. However, when the reset button is pressed, new priorities and new patterns of behaviour emerge.
