Duo-exhibition Run-through is an encounter between Jelena Jureša and Aernout Mik.  Jelena Jureša relates in her films, the last one of which is once again produced by nona, individual stories to collective processes of oblivion and remembrance, while Aernout Mik’s audiovisual installations chart the formation and transformation of group behaviours. With new and recent works, they sketch a critical portrait of our contemporary society. As such, Run-through reflects on historical facts, present)day European matters and political narratives.

The selected works of Dutch artist Aernout Mik are being presented for the first time in Belgium. Through a range of historical events - from the colonial power relations of the Dutch Indies to the aftermath of the terror attack in France - they investigate the relationship that individuals have with their environment. Mik represented the Netherlands in the Dutch Pavilion at the 52nd Venice Biennale, 2007 and had solo exhibitions at Jeu de Paume (Paris), MoMA (New York), Schirn Kunsthalle (Frankfurt) and the Stedelijk Museum (Amsterdam).

Jelena Jureša is an artist and filmmaker born in former Yugoslavia. In her films, she unceasingly questions historical and political narratives, and tries to challenge our ideas of what is true. In Aphasia (2019) for instance, she deals with black chapters in European history, from Belgian colonialism to Austrian anti-semitism and atrocities in Bosnia during the Yugoslavian wars. Her work was internationally presented during Manifesta 14 Pristina and in argos (Brussels), Contour 9 (Mechelen), Maxim Gorki (Berlin) and BAK (Utrecht).

Run-through presents a multi-layered back and forth between historical facts and situational behaviour, offering a critical view on the European past and our future challenges.
