Publisher's description: This handsome book peers into the theatre workshop, collective art space, and creative incubator of Belgian multidisciplinary artist Jan Fabre (b. 1958), whose dissentient performances, staged since the 1980s, have brought him international acclaim and recognition. Expressing the collective aims of Fabre's theatre company, Troubleyn/Laboratorium functions as his workshop as well as a nurturing space for the activities of his theater company and young artists alike, in which artists are free to develop and materialize their creative impulses. The building, situated in a popular neighborhood in northern Antwerp, houses a uniquely integrated collection of art works from around the globe, representing Fabre's personal tastes and the overall cooperative spirit of the space itself. Fostering an environment that is as progressive as the artist's varied oeuvre, Troubleyn/Laboratorium provides the grounds for an idealistic hotbed of artistic activity and this publication offers a glimpse of that possible utopia.
