Gevaarlijk Jong | with F. Franciscus, Ruud van Empel, Carolein Smit, James Mollison, Oleg Dou and other artists
Exhibition of works by various artists in Museum Dr. Guislain, Gent, Belgium
Curated by Patrick Allegaert and Bart Marius
from 01 October 2011 till 10 May 2012
Gevaarlijk Jong (Maliciously Young) is the title of a large selection of works by various artists on show at the Museum Dr. Guislain in Gent (Belgium).
Gevaarlijk JOng shows how artists in modern and very recent time have captured the disturbing side of the innocence of children. The curators have connected these images with the socio-cultural and ideological context they were created by inviting different scientist to share their view on our attitude towards children's psyche, here derived from the exhibited works.
The exhibition deals with the subject of children as a vulnerable part of life, but also of children being maliciously themselves.
Museum Dr. Guislain is dedicated to the evolution of psychiatry, showing both how it has progressed and where it did sometimes fail. The museum was founded in 1986 and is located on the premises of the Psychiatric Centre Dr. Guislain that is still in use today.
