War and conflict is still a reality for many people in today’s world, just as it was for those people who lived hundred years ago.
Cut the Crap is Het Entrepot’s artistic component of the commemoration. It presents a contemporary reading of the impact of conflict and its causes and consequences which will be revealed through visual arts, multidisciplinary in its nature. Over a period of five years Het Entrepot focuses on different themes in relation to the notion of ‘conflict’.
We invite young artists to research their position towards the greater theme of conflict in the arts and in our globalized world. Het Entrepot is looking for projects that are clearly developed based on a social engagement or which are conceived from the necessity to respond to a particular problem or conflict (in relation to ‘History’).
