Conflict Roomwas a temporary platform for artistic projects in Antwerp in 2010, with an emphasis on different approaches around the nature of 'conflict'. Initiated by Ben Van den Berghe in collaboration with Pieter Boons, Alan Quireyns, Srdjan Stancic.
Inspired by the video work Them (2007) from the Polish artist Artur Zmijewski - who set up a situation in which various ideological groups within Polish society could criticize, discuss and interact with each other - Conflict Room was born. Over a period of 3 months, a number of artists were challenged to question and explore the notion of 'conflict', resulting in weekly exhibitions.
