Year founded: 2003
Organiser: Contour Mechelen


Contour Biennale is one of the most easily recognizable, large-scale exhibition platforms in Belgium: a unique initiative engaging with local and international artists who focus on the moving image and its wider representation in installations, sound and performance.

Contour was established in 2003 as the Biennial of Moving Image, a platform to curators and artists working with different forms of moving image, from film and video to installation. The biennial has progressively expanded its horizons to produce public events and installations.
