“Art means total freedom, no algorithms but my own” - an interview with Koen Vanmechelen

Koen Vanmechelen is a contemporary Belgian conceptual artist who is best known for his work ‘Cosmopolitan Chicken Project’, which explored the themes of bio-cultural diversity through the study of a chicken and its genetic ancestor, the red junglefowl. Science and technology play an important role in his art and many critics have explored this relationship. Koen Vanmechelen’s thinking seems to depart from the realms of art, which sets him free to explore his subjects from new and original viewpoints. The Cosmopolitan Chicken Project was a worldwide breeding program, allowing Vanmechelen to study the human-bred creatures, diversity issues and the ethics of his crossbreeding activity.

“I have learnt that it is essential to always keep an open mind and never become dogmatic,” Hendrik Driessen, De Pont

This September, Museum De Pont in Tilburg, Holland, will celebrate its 25th anniversary. The museum first opened its doors in 1992 thanks to the generous support of Dutch businessman and attorney J.H. De Pont (1915-1987). The founder had decided that part of his estate was to be used to stimulate contemporary art, but left it up to the board of the new foundation to determine how and where the museum would be opened. “When I began as the museum’s first director in early 1989, all sorts of directions could still be taken – and there was something to say for each of them – but the question was: which direction would be ours?”
