For the second year in a row, KVS and VUB unite forces to kick off the academic and cultural year. At MINDBLOWERS, don’t expect any puffed-up speeches or highfalutin lectures. No: short, powerful interventions at the crossroads of arts, culture, research and reflection. At the intersection of activism, ‘artivism’ and academia.
ODE TO THE IMAGINATION
This second edition of MINDBLOWERS will be an ode to the imagination. Academics and artists both work from a place of curiosity, wonder, freedom, creativity and critical thinking. Only by imagining and envisioning the impossible can arts and science create new horizons.
On 8 October 2018 you can discover where all of this leads to at KVS. A rich selection of national and international artists share their vision on imagination. What does imagination mean to artists versus scientists? Is there any cross-pollination that speaks to the imagination?
From 6pm we start blowing away the cobwebs of summer to kick off the academic and cultural year with a clear and sharp brain.
