Kamagurka - The End of Cubism - 2012
From the first of May to the first of August 2012 – Arentshuis and other locations
Artist, painter, theatre and television producer Kamagurka (Luc Zeebroek) will act as curator for a special art project in Bruges: Kamarama. On several locations he will display his own works as well as works of other artists who inspire and fascinate him. It will be an exhibition full of remarkable art, surprising perspectives and a certain amount of humour.

The Arentshuis will act as a live atelier in which Kamagurka will display his own art works. From time to time he will create a new work here, by himself or together with other artists such as David Bade (May 1), Stephen Tunney (May 3 & 4), Werner Mannaers (May 17 & 18), Jeroen Henneman (June 28 & 29) and Muzo (July 10 & 11).
In the Garemijn Hall, Kamagurka displays works from artists who inspired and influenced him. He likes to combine historic and contemporary art. He’s also fascinated by international links and the use of mixed media in art.

You will also see art works in the streets of Bruges such as his ‘accidental’ portraits of fictive people. There will be 12 portraits spread around the Arentshof garden and alongside the Dijver. If you think you recognize a family member, friend or acquaintance in one of the portraits, you can report this on this website. At the end of the project, Kamagurka will choose the one who is the best lookalike of one of his portraits.
