CONTOUR 7, a Moving Image Biennale in Mechelen, will
open to the public from Saturday 29 August until Sunday 8 November 2015.
This edition bears the artistic mark of curator Nicola Setari who has
chosen Fooling Utopia as its motto.
Contour Mechelen vzw is pleased
to invite you

the summer of 1515, More wrote the bulk of his book on the ideal
commonwealth, the island of Utopia.

artists spread across six venues in the City of Mechelen:
