Fifty-Fifty was the name of a series of artists’ reunions which took place in the late eighties and early nineties at the Antwerp gallery Inexistent (1986-1996). The magazine they wanted to launch never appeared, but it did inspire a wide range of spontaneous art initiatives. After Inexistent disappeared, the story of Factor44 began in Antwerp. Meanwhile, in Brussels, the spirit of Fifty-Fifty was kept alive by the association Dialogist-Kantor, and in 1992 the Laboratoires Pataclystes were launched. All this and more inspired Brussels-based artist Emilio López-Menchero (1960) to travel across time in Brussels and Antwerp, haunted by those spirits which, twenty years earlier, had haunted the late-night Fifty-Fifty reunions.
