“What’s Your Favourite Conspiracy Theory?” @ Buenos Tiempos, Int./Mophradat, Brussels

The Brussels launch of curator Francis McKee's book How to Know What’s Really Happening was held on Monday 20 February 2017, from 7pm, hosted by Buenos Tiempos, Int. and Mophradat at Quai des Charbonnages 34, 1080 Molenbeek-Saint-Jean.

Edited by Maha Maamoun & Ala Younis, with Mai Abu ElDahab, and published by Kayfa ta, Mophradat, and Sternberg Press in late 2016, McKee's essay is the third in the Kayfa ta ("how to") series, which "respond to some of today’s perceived needs; be they the development of skills, tools, thoughts, or sensibilities."

The launch featured a track by artist and musician Geo Wyeth, a talk by McKee himself about some of his favourite conspiracies, one by artist Sven Augustijnen, and a reading by me about the figure of Christine Villemin. All this occurred within a décor made by artist Laurie Charles.

Designed by Julie Peeters and Valerie Arif, the book is available in two editions (English and Arabic):

9.6 x 14.8 cm, 56 pages, softcover
ISBN 978-3-95679-272-4 (English)
ISBN 978-3-95679-296-0 (Arabic)

Many thanks to Alberto García del Castillo and Marnie Slater for the invitation to present my work in this context, and to Joel Mu for his ongoing support.
