2013–2014. Masterscriptie Lola Daels, A Favela project.

Hoewel de prijzen voor werken van befaamde kunstenaars anno 2014 de pan uit swingen, heeft de kunst in de 21ste eeuw haar louter elitaire imago van zich afgeschud. Kunst huist tegenwoordig overal. In al haar verschijningsvormen. Maar wat als je geen dak boven je hoofd hebt? Een ontmoeting met een dakloze vrouw in Brussel wierp me terug op mezelf. Maak ik sociaal geëngageerde kunst? Zo ja, wat is dat precies, en wil ik dit wel?

Lola Prima Donna Daels (°1990) is a Brussels based artist, who mostly creates site specific and installation art.  Her practice derives from long processes of research in which she investigates analytical and critical inquiries about ecological, environmental and socio-political issues.

She has been part of several residency programs such as EKWC (NL), Kooshk recidency (IR), Cité Internationale des Arts (FR). Her work was shown at Bozar (BE), Extracity Kunsthal (BE), Deegar Platform (IR), the African Art Fair in Marrakech (MA) and many more. She was selected to participate at the fifth edition of STRT Kit, a one-year development program for artists in Antwerp.  

Her interest in urban complexities led to the collaboration with architect Sebastiaan Willemen, with who she founded chépas collective. She’s is a member of Level Five, an artistic ecology in Brussels, Belgium. Curruntly she’s represented by Kusseneers Gallery, Brussels.
