Subjective atlas of Hainaut

The recognition of twenty sites and events as UNESCO World Heritage was the trigger for the Province of Hainaut to realize a Subjective Atlas of the province. In collaboration with these organizations over 8 workshops were organized with people having a personal relation with these particular sites.

The Belgium province of Hainaut is a crossroad of destinies and histories. It’s a border land located on a geometric location of potential other worlds, intertwined in a surrealist reality and against a backdrop of chiming bells. It’s is a region with a rich and diverse cultural heritage, though outside it’s borders that’s frequently over looked.

In this subjective atlas more then three dozen Hainuyers show what this cultural heritage means for them as artists, designers and inhabitants. What roles do historical events play in their every-day live? What does it mean when a site is protected by the world heritage list? How does it form their contemporary reality Rather then folkloristic clichés, the visual authors of this atlas present personal, sensitive and at times razor-sharp visions. In this way the Subjective atlas of Hainaut is a poetic form of antrophology, offering a new insight in the barely tangible aspects that make a culture both characterististic and in continuous change.
