Offshore in Belgium

Cally Spooner (UK)

The government should be run like a great American company. Our hope is that we can achieve successes and efficiencies for our customers, who are the citizens.
Jared Kushner, 2017

Since 2015 Cally Spooner has been probing the connections between economic, social and neuronal organisation. Over three days sixteen collaborators meet alongside a number of art works, in the form of rotas, lectures, fan mail, contracts and extended lunches. Sitting somewhere between a rehearsal, a happening, an occupation, a programmation and a book synopsis, a partly improvised study on governance unfolds in the exhibition spaces.

Offshore in Belgium is commissioned by Corpus, network for performance practice ( and is produced by Playground (STUK & M, Leuven). Corpus is Bulegoa z/b (Bilbao), CAC (Vilnius), KW (Berlin), If I Can’t Dance (Amsterdam), Playground (STUK & M, Leuven) and Tate Modern (London). Corpus is co-funded by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union
