On the anniversary of the lockdown on Saturday, Still Standing for Culture will again make itself heard. They are not demanding an immediate reopening of the cultural sector, but rather a fair implementation and distribution of the Corona measures. Together with the Belgian cultural sector, Kaaitheater is taking to the streets in the good company of K.A.K. & CREW. Their shouting-robot intervention TheUnheard will make a highly symbolic and overwhelming noise. Do you want to join in?

As part of her contribution to 'The Other Tradition' (WIELS), Pilvi Takala’s performance 'Bag
Lady' will take place in a shopping mall in the centre of

part of the 5th Berlin Biennial’s night program in 2008.
