‘Romantic love is saturated with commoditization. The socialistic premise behind “free love” crumbles when desiring competition gets in the way, and in the age of hook-up apps, the possibility of free sex represents the liberalization, not the liberation, of love.’ Alexa Karolinski and Ingo Niermann of the Army of Love engage these issues with an utopian proposal framed by conversations questioning the basic premises of love and justice.
Throughout the Brussels Art Week the video Army of Love (2016) will be screened at SUPERDEALS during prime time hours. The Army of Love is invited by Art Center CIAP in the frame of ‘Onder Ons’, the ongoing exhibition at CIAP curated by Isabel van Bos and Evelyn Simons.
