ABOUT


Antoine Horenbeek (b.1993, BE) is a Brussels-based photographer and architect. From a young age, he has been interested in many practices in the visual arts. After studying architecture at La Cambre in Brussels, he decided to work as an architect and as a photographer.

This duality between photography and architecture allows him to treat his subjects in a more interdisciplinary and unique way. His photographs are related to architecture, town planning, social and urban issues, housing and right to the city. The projects he works on address the issue of slums and their non-recognition as part of the so-called “formal” city (Intimate Favela, 2018), the intimacy and aesthetics of popular architecture, the relations between public and private space and urbanism in Brazil (Brésil, L’Aube, 2015-2018) or even the informal architecture of the homeless and their ability to create new forms of housing (Off The Map, 2020-2022). This alternative vision of architecture and the city is reflected in all of his projects. His work is mainly documentary and political.

Since 2015, he has collaborated with architecture and urban planning offices, artist collectives, NGO's and medias. His work has been the subject of numerous publications and several exhibitions in Belgium, France and Brazil, among others at Museu de Arte do Rio (2020-2021), Maison Stepman (2021), Académie Constantin Meunier (2021), Kaaitheater (2021), Halles Saint-Gery (2021-2022), Koninklijk Vlaams Theater (2021-2022) or Studio Baxton (2022).
