CLAPTRAP is a new initiative led by artist Leo Alessandro Lopez and Joppe Venema in Antwerp, Belgium.

From the will to provide a professional and free-minded space, we aim to show the work of international, young, emerging contemporary artists and forward-thinkers of all kinds.

Located in the basement of the 31 Wolstraat building, headquarters of the artists collective ERCOLA, one of the oldest and still active groups of the Antwerp art scene (since 1968), CLAPTRAP is determined to pursue its heritage by providing a polyvalent space for dialogue and experimentation.



absurd or nonsensical talk or ideas, pretentious nonsense.
