analogue DJ set by Daphné Pascual

Daphné Pascual will play a DJ set inspired by the audiovisual experiments of the 1970s and by her own past. As the daughter of the couple behind the independent record label USA Import Music (founded in 1973 and known among other things for the legendary new beat hit The Sound of C by Confetti’s), Daphné brings unpretentious, analogue glitches with cassette tapes, vinyls and CDs.


THE 1970s: _ highlights a remarkably prolific era of artistic production in Belgium that saw the acceleration of audiovisual experimentation. From 1970 onward, artists started fully exploring the creative and technological possibilities of video and film. Played out predominantly across the geo- cultural axis of Liège – Antwerp, with important digressions in Brussels, Aalst, Namur, and Knokke, it marks a period during which artists developed new forms of production that were often collaborative, immaterial, and interdisciplinary in nature.

THE 1970s: _ is the first public manifestation of a long-term research project argos launched in 2018. The exhibition divides the findings of this research into four main themes: means of production, events, artist collectives, and the interdisciplinary. These four chapters are explored on the ground floor, while the upper floor is dedicated to foregrounding the utopian potential of video and film. THE 1970s: _ recreates a selection of key installations from the era, while also presenting a series of digitised art works originally shot on U-matic, Sony Open Reel, 16mm, and Super 8.
