Why relooking at caricature today?
Caricature is a satirical reaction to and a comment upon reality, it cannot exist without referring to a certain thing, person, situation that pre-exists. My research proposal for A/R evolves around the form of representation of a body that has to do with excess, simulacrum, grotesque and its potential to link to and trace the social today.
The research project receives the support of A / R (Art - Recherche asbl) for the period of April to December 2017. L' Académie Royale des Beaux-Arts - École supérieure des Arts de la Ville de Bruxelles (ARBA-ESA) is the carrier of this project.
