Various Artists is a Brussels based art collective with 24 members.
Their origins go back to 1993 when visual artist Trudo Engels (*1962) started to spread his (fragmented) artistic practice over several fictional characters. Over a period of almost 15 years he developed an international collective, known today as Various Artists or VA.
The collective is a Gesamtkunstwerk where all research topics and artistic practices of its 24 members come together in collaborative installations or projects.
Selected exhibitions and performances include: Lettres d'Ixelles, nadine, Brussels (2012); Le Chateau, Galeria Luisa Strina, Sao Paulo (2012); Human Mathematics, Museo Textil, Oaxaca (2014); Q and A Galleria Continua, San Gimignano (2015); Kosmografia, Croxhapox, Ghent (2015); Saudade de Europa, Pixelache Festival, Helsinki (2016); Scotomata, curated by Edwin Carels at JOEY RAMONE in collaboration with International Film Festival Rotterdam (IFFR) and Piet Zwart Institute (2016); Liber Numericus, Stereolux, Nantes (2016); Água com Gas, JOEY RAMONE, Rotterdam (2017)
