Anouk De Clercq explores the potential of audiovisual language to create possible worlds. She is interested in what lies behind ‘reality’ or in between the visible and the imaginary. Her recent work is based on the utopian idea of ‘radical empathy’.

Her work has been shown in Tate Modern, Centre Pompidou, Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia, MAXXI, Centre d’Art Contemporain Genève, BOZAR, International Film Festival Rotterdam, Berlinale, Ars Electronica, among others.

She is a founding member of Auguste Orts and initiator of Monokino. She is affiliated to the School of Arts University College Ghent as a visiting professor.
