Deciding the law wasn’t the way to fix their dispute, Luc Tuymans and photographer Katrijn Van Giel settled their dispute in a confidential out-of-court settlement.

Van Giel and Tuymans stated that they decided “to settle their dispute, as artists and in an artistic way, rather than to allow it to be settled in a court of law”, and that the photographer “relinquishes her legal action”.
