PHILOSOPHY OF THE MAISON DE L’IMAGE

Vocation

The Maison de l’Image shows professionals and the general public the very best that image, graphics and illustration work in Belgium and the world has to offer. It is unique in its work, despite the increasing public interest in such initiatives. Each exhibition is accompanied by a limited-edition catalogue. This is free to those who attend the opening, to visitors, and of course to participants, while stocks last. The Maison de l’Image is a non-profit, volunteer-led organization.

Ethics

Exhibition participation is based on a principle of invitation. It is not a competition in which the organizers judge which projects will be invited to participate. The organizers assume their decision. We have continued to use this method, since it is liked by artists. Of course, the organizers’ choice is subjective, so will never be unanimous, and they take personal responsibility for their decision.

Participate

Always looking to find what the best people are producing, the Maison de l’Image is becoming something like a stars’ club. Our contacts with art schools allow us to expand our knowledge, but this is not enough. Wherever you are in the world, make yourself known.

Copyrights

Participation in a Maison de l’Image exhibition implies authorisation for the work to be reproduced in the catalogue, in press releases, in media coverage, on the internet, in blogs and in all formats which might contribute to the success of the exhibition. It also implies participation in future invitations, as yet unknown, in Belgium or in other countries. The copyrights apply for these other exhibition locations.
