Charlotte De Cock introduces ‘The Thirteen Masters’: a story about thirteen male artists who are the voice of a generation, through arts, music, acting, writing and photography. The artists she picked are all internationally known, but based in Antwerp and included Luc Tuymans, Koen van den Broek, Robbe De Hert, Jan Decleir, Fred Bervoets, Damiaan De Schrijver, Ludo Mich, Guillaume Bijl, Jeroen Olyslaegers, Wim Catrysse, Tom Barman, Guy Van Bossche, Herman Selleslags. De Cock portrayed these men in an, “unexpected way.” De Cock painted them as they are, in a setting where they go to relax, escape, or vent. On the opening night Luc Tuymans came to do the opening speech at Koen van den Broek’s studio where De Cock held her month long residency.
