Sorry was an artist-run organisation based in Antwerp. With every project different artists join the collective.
The need for collaboration was one its foundations. This ‘collaboration’ takes different shapes, but came from a necessity to, whilst acting, enter a dialogue with the artistic field. By doing this Sorry aimed to offer a counterweight to solitary art practice.
As an organisation, Sorry asked itself questions around authorship and the regular mechanisms of production and consumption of art [not only art] in our society.
Sorry did deliberately put itself in a peripheral position in relation to the artistic field. This generates diverse 'modes of production' that created a freedom of movement in which non-artistic models and roles could be explored.

De Belly was a vegetarian open kitchen which is started as ice-cream shop in September 2016.
De Belly departed form the idea that, by organizing ourselves on another way, new possibilities appear to generate means/commodities that can support our (individual or collective) artistic practice, but can also be an inherent part of this, or question it.
