Road films usually dwell on the self-discovery stories of characters who have been lost or underdogs all their lives. But King of the Belgians is a bit different… Our protagonist, who is lost in the Balkans is His-Majesty the King of Belgium! King Nicholas III is informed that Wallonia has declared independence during his official visit to Istanbul and he is determined to go back to his country and save his kingdom. He has a lot to confront though; a solar storm, idle devices and crazy people he meets on the road. Presented as a mockumentary, this great comedy is directed by the creative duo behind The Fifth Season, Peter Brosens and Jessica Woodworth.
In 1998 Ben Jakober and Yannick Vu collaborated on an obvious remake of Marcel Duchamp’s Roue de Bicyclette, his first “readymade” object. Duchamp combined a bicycle wheel, a fork and a stool to create a machine which served no purpose, subverting accepted norms of art.
Inspired by the exhibition And Now the Good News, which focusing on the relationship between mass media and art, we prepared horoscope readings based on the chapters of the exhibition. Using the popular astrological language inspired by the effects of the movements of celestial bodies on people, these readings with references to the works in the exhibition make fictional future predictions inspired by the horoscope columns that we read in the newspapers with the desire to receive good news about our day.
