Concertgebouw Brugge presents two exhibitions during the fifth edition of Brugge Foto 2017. 

'Ad Noctum' with Annelies de Mey, Karin Borghouts, Aurore Dal Mas and Zoë Parton.
Karin Borghouts shows the large photograph (270 x 180 cm) which has been exhibited in Ozenay (France) this summer.
The exhibition 'Ad Noctum' refers to the December Dance Festival, which is staged in Bruges at roughly the same time. The theme of the exhibition is darkness and obscurity. These have also been a great inspiration to Christian Rizzo, the curator of this year’s December Dance Festival.   
Sammy Slabbinck presents a solo exhibition with a comprehensive new series of dynamic collages and prints.
