Mijn oren? Die verstop ik gewoon lekker onder mijn pet!
The house we work and live in, Ercola, is concidered uninhabitable since a week or so. This means we will get evicted within 2 months. It's a small disaster, especially for the people that live here since 45 years but also for the area, much like Café De Kat, Ercola functions as a sort of local bottle of glue that links folks from the area. We are now awaiting to hear why it is uninhabitable, and are looking for solutions. Finding a simular place will be very difficult.
Since 51 years Ercola functions as a artist collective in the centre of Antwerp, in the 60's as a commune, that created psychedelic comic art zines, later as a collective that created art, and props for famous television and theatre productions. The space housed many artists, such as Luc Deleu, Ria Pacquée, Ferre Grignard, George Smits, Wannes Van De Velde, Oscar winning Nicole Van Goethem, Marcel De Cleer, Frieda Kuterna, and later Pinkie Bowtie, Ultra Eczema etc. Last year it's 50th birthday was celebrated with a book, published by Lannoo, and an exhibition at M HKA.
Tonight John Also Bennet performs at Table Dance. John's father was also called John, the word or now name "Also" is on his passport.
