Zomer Van Antwerpen (Summer of Antwerp) organises lots of cultural events in Antwerp each summer, but due to Covid-19 and safety measures, just a few of the projects that were planned for 2020 could take place. Pictured are a few highlights. Bookmark their website to keep informed about Summer 2021 events.
‘In Memoriam’ is a new artwork by Luke Jerram that premiered in Belgium 7-16th August for Zomer Van Antwerpen at Park Spoor Noord. The artwork was then presented at the Greenwich+Docklands International Festival in London 28-31st August.
The installation was a temporary memorial for the public to visit and remember all those we have lost from the COVID-19 pandemic. The artwork is also made in tribute to all the NHS health and care workers who have been risking their lives during the crisis.
