Klaxon is an electronic Magazine about living Art in public Space.
Klaxon reflects Cifas's interest for living artistic interventions in public space, an interest consolidated through the organisation of urban practice workshops, as well as SIGNAL, name behind which we organise on one hand, debates and workshops around practices and experiences of living art in public space, and on the other hand, urban artistic actions addressing Brussels’ urban fabric.
Ten issues have been published focusing on living art in the city. Each successive issue examine this central theme from a different perspective.
New issue: Klaxon 10
"Dissent in the city"
Performing art in public space is undeniably consensual, for it operates in shared space. The artists often anticipate or avoid conflict, encouraged by the cultural and/or political organizers who invite them to perform. At a time, however, when the institutionally preferred modus vivendi is to claim consensus in order to avoid being challenged, it strikes us as critical that artists not forget the vital role that disagreement, and even conflict, plays in democracy.
This 10th issue of Klaxon, largely inspired by encounters and performances at the SIGNAL festival in Brussels during September 2018, focuses on non-consensual approaches and issues raised by disagreement over or via artworks.
