VIDEO: INFINTY panel discussion
The first outpatients’ clinic for supportive and palliative care TOPAZ (VUB) (founded by Wim Distelmans) offers support to patients with incurable disease and their loved ones. The Kaaitheater is supporting their three-year artistic-participative project IN/FINITY, in which artists and the guests/patients at the centre engage in dialogue on the theme of (in)finity. It is not unthinkable that some of the participants will never see the artistic end result. You will see a glimpse of their method and process, half way through.
To close the evening, the artists will debate scientists and one another about transhumanism, the importance of touch in art and caregiving, the effect of breathing on wellbeing, and the power of the imagination when ill. In a mix of exhibitions and discussions.
