workshop, performance, expo, film, walk, food
This year we decided to resist the autumn blues and prolong the summer vibes with the next Zomertank 2023: ALL THAT WE HAVE HERE IS ALL THE WE’VE ALWAYS HAD, curated by Out of Sight. SAVE THE DATE and join us for the opening on Saturday, 28 October 2023!
Dušica Dražić and Wim Janssen (Out of Sight) see Kessel-Lo as an archive of traces that expose the ongoing transition of the neighbourhood — from farm-land, to industrial and post-industrial site, into a speculative projection of the future-scape. The starting point is a landmark of this neighbourhood – the Koning Albert social housing building, a result of the post-war urban development of Kessel-Lo in 1950’s. Now empty, this building awaits its final demolition, symbolising the inevitable changes that our living environments continuously go through.
ALL THAT WE HAVE HERE IS ALL THAT WE’VE ALWAYS HAD looks at processes of modernisation that go hand in hand with scientific, technological and social innovations. It explores the link between arts, urbanism and architecture, and the possible social impacts that they can have on the way we form communities, live together and then go apart.
Notions of centre and periphery are brought to the foreground. Together with the invited artists and neighbours, we look at how these positions are continuously renegotiated and redefined. We are inviting you to join us in a walk from the exhibition at Domo to site-specific performances in Kessel-Lo, hosted by neighbours, Atelier Minnoye, Community Center Cassablanca, and Schools.
Zomertank is this year embedded in the larger city wide Dieric Bouts – New Horizons festival and is part of the Fringe trajectory, connecting Leuven based organizations offering a platform to young and experimental arts and artists.
