Isabel Miquel Arqués in dialogue with Karen Blixen
Hosted by Geukens & De Vil
Beyond Borders. Isabel Miquel Arqués in dialogue with Karen Blixen is published by Ludion and is part of a trilogy that is an artistic dialogue between the artist and female icons such as Karen Blixen, Virginia Woolf and Georgia O'Keeffe. In the first part of this trilogy, Isabel links her own life to that of the Danish writer Karen Blixen by means of photographs, screen prints and short fragments of prose and poetry. Arqués interweaves the impressions that she gathered in Blixen's house, world, novels and biography into a new story of poetic images.
Beyond Borders. Isabel Miquel Arqués in dialogue with Karen will be available in bookstores on March 15.

Young talent in the spotlight
Ramy Moharam Fouad
Ramy is a 21-year-old, Antwerp based, film director, photographer and creative director.
His passion for the audiovisual world is rooted in photography, where Ramy was able to experiment a lot during his teenage years. After participating in several competitions with his personal work, he started to roll into the backstage of various Belgian musicians and bands, following them around on tour. Always on the road with his brother, singer-songwriter Tamino, he created his visual identity during his breakthrough and still does.
At that time he discovered an equally growing passion for moving images after he directed his first music video at the age of 16 for the song ‘Cigar’ by Tamino. He knew directing was his calling. From then on, Ramy has been directing many music videos for artists such as Tamino, Blackwave, IBE, Emma Bale and Selah Sue & designer JanJan Van Essche
When not on tour or working on a music video, Ramy mainly works on his shortfilms, telling his own stories. His most recent work is ‘Shadow, till you return’, a film he created together with Violet Braeckman was selected for kortfilmfestival Leuven 2020, Breedbeeld filmfestival 2020 en VERS filmfestival 2021
This year he will graduate from Luca School of Arts in his bachelor. We will sell some prints to support his shortfilm
