‘Thank God for the Gift’ delves into the life of one of the most remarkable figures in recent Belgian art history: Jan Hoet. The film not only provides insights into his extraordinary career as a prominent curator but also delves into his flamboyant personality. A man driven by an insatiable passion for art, he was radical in his honesty and resolute in his pursuit of total intellectual and emotional freedom. He extracted art from the confines of museums and brought it to the people. We follow the journey of an uncertain young man who evolves into a controversial pioneer in the art world, experiencing great successes and praise, yet also facing a torrent of criticism.
