Why I didn't stay

…very long at SMAK. After the meet and greet with Carl De Keyzer organised by Artur, I did potter around the museum for a bit and was well impressed with the video art of Dara Birnbaum there. When I walked out I realised that I had spent more time at SMAK than originally planned.
Apart from the fact that I thought that the whole group was a bit overly eager to shoot every corner of every room and all the people in there, I wanted to go and see my little niece Leonie who’s now growing up incredibly fast.
She enjoyed her finger painting ànd the mandatory bath afterwards. It’s good spending time with family from time to time. And that’s the main reason why I wasn’t socialising much at the event.
