guy van belle
Guy Van Belle/mxHz.org has been prominently involved in the use and development of media for artistic purposes since 1990. Since 2000 he has been working as xgz under the name of the collective digital band mxHz.org (machine cent'red humanz), creating collaborative performances, concerts, workshops, exhibitions and unexpected experimental/abstract art projects.
He has been working across Europe, with a primary focus on 'areas of transition' in South, Central and Eastern Europe. His streaming workshops have resulted in the establishment of active new networks among artists, institutions, and cultural activists. With Akihiro Kubota he started the 'Society of Algorithm' in 2001, working on net-based music performances. He is co-founder of OKNO, together with Annemie Maes and Gert Aertsen.
