After having invited curator Philippe Pirotte to show works by artists of the Flemish Community, Krizinger projekte launched the same invitation to the BPS22 for the Wallonia-Brussels Community. To avoid any global vision that would have associated the artists to a fictitious "community", the proposition of the BPS22 privileged individualities, underlining their diversity by focusing on their singularity.
The title of the show Brussels South Airport is a parody of the Charleroi airport in Brussels greater area, translating this will of associating the Wallonia-Brussels Community to the idea of a platform: a political entity formed by the people who inhabit it rather than by a geographic reality, circulating on the imperfectly defined "South of Brussels" territory, which is particularly restrained at European scale. The Community must therefore be considered as a place for encounters, a crossroad where countless different personalities meet, a space boasting both immigrants and immigrated.
