10 years on from his death and 50 years since May 1968, BOZAR is putting on an exhibition devoted to Flanders' most acclaimed author: Hugo Claus. This multidisciplinary exhibition portrays Claus in all his facets: author, painter, theatre maker and film director. Yet it isn't a traditional overview of a life and an oeuvre. Curator Marc Didden has put together a highly personal exhibition with love – con amore – which is not about Claus, but for Claus. An original portrait involving carefully selected archive footage, photos, excerpts of text and works of art by, amongst others, Appel, Raveel and Ensor, but also contemporary artists such as Borremans, De Cordier and Dillemans. And there is the close link between Claus and the Centre for Fine Arts, where he first exhibited in 1959, took part in the legendary ‘Poëzie in het Paleis’ (‘Poetry in the Palace’) in 1966 and led an evening of protest against censorship in May 1968.
