HomePast work De Opsluiting

Date: Aug 2019
Commission partner: Fameus
Description: A part of the museumnacht programme in Belgium, Keisha worked with a group of young artists in 24 museum lockdown.


4 groups of young people from Warsaw, Tilburg, Manchester and Antwerp, locked up for 24 hours in 4 museums with 4 artistic coaches.

The process: sleep deprivation, chaos, artistic crisis and overdrive.

The result: 4 20-minute show moments during Museum Night.



Someone give me some #MondayMotivation, cos all i wanna do is be back in antwerp with @ContactMcr making some mad art. Had the most intense and beautiful 4 days full of mosquito bites, tiredness, friendship and art. Huge shouts to @Keke_Thom. glad to have finally worked with you.
