a different look at Aalst

This fall, Aalst is the common thread in ALIAS, a city exhibition of Netwerk Aalst. A dozen contemporary works of art are scattered throughout the city.

Some places are busy. Other places usually remain hidden, or have residents who remain invisible. Throughout the exhibition you discover places you have never been to, or you look with different eyes at a place that you know so well but you no longer noticed.

Fact and fiction intertwine throughout the exhibition. Just as a city transforms under the influence of its inhabitants and visitors, residents change because of the city. Through this interaction, residents give substance to what citizenship can mean for their city in the making.
