Sven Augustijnen (°1970) lives and works in Brussels.
Augustijnen’s films, publications and installations on political, historical and social themes constantly challenge the genre of the documentary, reflecting a wider interest in historiography and a predilection for the nature of storytelling. He is fascinated by the way we use stories, images and fiction to construct reality and history.
Augustijnen had solo-shows at the Kunsthalle Bern, Bern; Wiels, Centre for Contemporary Art, Brussels; de Appel, arts centre, Amsterdam; Malmö Konsthall; Vox, Centre pour l’Image contemporaine, Montréal; CCS Bard, Annandale-on-Hudson. Recent group-shows include The Unfinished Conversation, The Power Plant, Toronto and Ce qui ne sert pas s’oublie, CAPC, Bordeaux. Sven Augustijnen is represented by Jan Mot, Brussels and is a founding member of Auguste Orts, Brussels.
