ARIA Art Festival

Louise Nelstrop and Pol Herrmann were inspired by the female mystics Hadewijch and Porete. They made a short film, partly because of financial support by UCSIA, about contemporary artists (Wim Henderickx, Anne-Mie van Kerckhoven, Aline Kiner, An Pierlé, Hendrik Vanden Abeele) interpreting and mediating the mystics.

They were counter-institutional figures writing about love; that makes them very appealing to artists. The film is a portrait of 5 famous artists who tell us about the mystics and their relevance today. The artists relate to them in a whole new way.

The film will be projected at the yearly ARIA art festival ‘Integrated’ from 7-8 November 2019 in De Singel (Antwerp). This year’s theme is ‘Radical Imagination’. For more information and tickets, click here.
