CAVEAT!!! is a collective research project that focuses on the legal and social-economic frameworks in which art workers operate, and the precarious conditions this generates. The project aims to redefine the contract as a tool for actively reconfiguring relations in the field, and as an instrument toward self-emancipation.

The Flemish Community has acquired Vincent Meessen's audiovisual installation One.Two.Three. The work, featuring a contemporary interpretation of a May 68 chant written by the Congolese Situationist Joseph Mbelolo ya Mpiku, was created for the Belgian Pavilion at the 56th Venice Biennale (2015).
One.Two.Three will be hosted by Mu.ZEE, museum for modern and contemporary art in Ostend. Since 2014, the museum has a programme with specific interest in the relationship between occidental modern art and art from the Congo, former Belgian colony, in the context of which Mu.ZEE shows at the moment the exhibition A conversation between collections from Kinshasa and Ostend.
Vincent Meessen talks with SON[I]A about journeys, uprisings, and metaphors, about work cooperatives, music groups and constructed scenarios, about the politics of making versus the politics of showing, and about how to revivify lost or dying colonial memories in the present.
SON[I]A is the longest standing emission of the radio programme at MACBA Museu d'Art Contemporani de Barcelona
