Klaxon

Klaxon Magazine

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.

Six issues have been published focusing on living art in the city. Each successive issue examine this central theme from a different perspective.

Last issue: Klaxon 7
"Between Care and Terror"
Confronted with terror, what can art do? “Care” was one of the options explored, here by Joan Tronto. This issue also echoes artistic approaches that focus on interactive forms in society in the interest of the other, integrating the notion of care—without yielding to sentimentality in any form.

Between Care and Terror

6

This sixth issue of Klaxon continues in a similar dynamic vein to our previous issue, which was also devoted to the theme of social justice. We would now like to introduce you to new forms of thinking on or artistic practices aiming to restore public space/s to bodies usually relegated to the margins: here, we will focus on experiences by women, by Roma, by young people and immigrants, by the homeless and the sick, by transgender people. 

 

For an Inclusive City

5

In this fifth issue, we question the place of the excluded body in city neighbourhoods, those alienated bodies rejected by cultural or social practices due to their perceived strangeness and difference.

Towards a Fairer City

In Klaxon 4, we discuss the notion of participation that is to be found more and more in artistic actions in public space. 
 

The City is Ours!

Klaxon 3 directly addresses those artistic practices that endeavour to redefine the lines drawn in our cities.

Mapped-out City
