Look for one of the lookouts, get up there and call one of the operators.

Untitled 14 KM explores how the art world currently approaches the concept of contemporary art in its relation with identity, and specifically Arab identity. Youness Atbane examines this through an enacted dialogue between fictional characters: an Arab-Andalusian poet, a director of the museum of contemporary art, a curator, and an artist. These characters are trying to set up an exhibition that analyzes the concept of modernism.

For this extra-large edition of the Open Studios, workspacebrussels has mapped out a museum-like route throughout their spaces and the neighbouring Kaaistudios. As you discover both buildings from sides you haven’t seen before, you will be surprised by installations, sculptures and videos set up in unexpected places. But the experience doesn’t end there: you are also invited to a curated walk in the city, a WhatsApp-performance, and unannounced interventions in public space.

Please note: this installation and film screening have been cancelled to help contain the spread of the new coronavirus. 

Children from Brussels, Athens and Sarajevo unroll rolls of transparent tape in the streets where they grew up. When they remove the tape, they pick up an imprint of the city. An old magic lantern brings this ultra-realistic diary to life. Divinations brings all these forms and images together in a film and an installation.

Step inside a driving mirror cart by yourself, form a dancing circle with your fellow audience members, or stand on the side-lines watching how people with periscopic masks try to find their way. Benjamin Vandewalle organizes an artistic funfair that offers unexpected experiences on Brussels’ squares.

Kyoko Scholiers had a telephone booth travel around for a year. She took it to prisoners, refugees, the homeless, prostitutes, patients, and the unlucky. During Misconnected, you enter the phonebooth yourself and you hear five-minute audio fragments. Just briefly, you witness the problems and complaints that one caller told Scholiers over the course of that year.

The Greeks were convinced that insanity was feminine. But what do those ‘crazy women’ themselves think? And what do you think? In this performative installation – the beginning of a research project at KASK – you will hear medical, philosophical and literary voices on being a woman and insanity. But most importantly, you will be given the floor.

This durational installation-performance will transport the Kaaistudios to the Algiers of the 60s and 70s, when it was dubbed the Mecca of Revolution. In between broadcasting company and a foreign broadcast monitoring centre, this polyglot and polyphonic performance immerses you in its making, from conception to broadcast.

This curated Beckett evening presents a surprising mix of forms: a monologue by Johan Leysen; a video lecture by philosopher and mathematician Jean Paul Van Bendegem; and a performative scenography as a possible landscape for a Beckett text. Through this combination, Kris Verdonck explores a fascination that he shares with Beckett, namely technology and the increasing conflict between humans and machines.

WORKING TITLE FESTIVAL — You can’t marry for papers only. If you want to keep a foreign national in the country, you are expected to create what the Belgian government calls 'a sustainable community living’, otherwise the relationship falls into the category of a fictitious marriage. What if two artists got married, without having a romantic affair?

WORKING TITLE FESTIVAL — Kasper Vandenberghe climbs on a scaffolding clad in a protective suit and then drops down like a rock. It is calculated recklessness. It is a poetic search for how vulnerable we can still allow ourselves to be and how we can understand vulnerability as a force. It is dancing on the loose rope between two deeply human desires: the desire for balance versus a bottomless leap into the unknown.

WORKING TITLE FESTIVAL — Hidden at the basement of workspacebrussels, lies Kosi Hidama’s atelier. Occupying the space over the past few years, his work slowly started invading all the other spaces of the building. With Garden of solid subtleness Kosi will create an interior summer garden with the ceramics he produced at his basement atelier, in combination with subtle sounds. The artist invited his friend Misha Downey to work with him on this pottery landscape.
