Flemish artist Johan Van Geluwe passed away in January of this year at the age of 90. Johan lived in Waregem where he was an honorary citizen.
The ARTchitect was one of the most important Belgian artists in the second half of the last century. In 2005, the art historian and curator Harald Szeemann gave him a central place in the exhibition Visionary Belgium at BOZAR | Brussels.
His fictional institute The Museum of Museums formed the leitmotiv in his work. For this Museum he collected and made mail art, graphic, installations, etc. He donated the extensive oeuvre – collected in his home – to the municipal archives of Waregem.
Johan van Geluwe had a special relationship with Middelburg. In his opinion it was the most Flemish city in the Netherlands.
Here he showed the results of his work several times: in the Vleeshal, in GHL and in ruimteCAESUUR.
