In late 2009 the exhibition 'Radical Autonomy' took place in the
contemporary art center Le Grand Café in St-Nazaire. The curator was
Arno van Roosmalen, director of Stroom Den Haag. The group exhibition
formed an intuitive and improvised composition of contemporary art based
on the discovery and / or the manifestation of the phenomenon of
perception. In collaboration with Le Grand Café and Stroom Den Haag,
Netwerk presents a sequel to this exhibition.
