Organised by Platform 0090, Kunsthal Extra City, Kunst/Werk, GRIP, MORPHO, Nona/Contour, SoAp, Moussem, C-TAKT
The Image Generator is a site-specific two-day happening that explores the interplay between visual art, sound art and performance. The sixth edition welcomes twenty artists and nine organizations to take over the exhibitions and spaces of Kunsthal Extra City and MORPHO. Prepare for a vibrant live encounter with interactive installations, performative interventions, video works, contemporary dance, collective readings and soundscapes. All set in a former Dominican monastery in the heart of Antwerp, Belgium.
The Image Generator aims to provide a fertile ground for new and pioneering art forms, but also stimulates a more direct and reciprocal exchange between audience, artist and environment. We believe that within this interaction a huge potential for new images and perspectives can emerge, leading to a sensorial dialogue and a way to share our most fleeting intuitions.
We invite you to come and generate your own imagination.

The Image Generator was initiated in 2015 by Platform 0090, Kunsthal Extra City, Lokaal 01 and Kunst/Werk, who shared the same building in Antwerp, Belgium. From this year onwards we ‘imagenerate’ together with additional partners who each bring their own ideas to the table. This non-hierarchical initiative was inspired by the short film Detour de force (2014), a fascinating video portrait by Rebecca Baron on ‘thoughtographer’ Ted Serios, who caused a sensation in the sixties with his alleged psychic ability to produce hundreds of Polaroid images from his mind.
With the generous support of
