PERFORMANCE COMMON GROUNDS
For the Intermedia project 'Common Grounds', students from LUCA School Of Arts explore how to merge image and sound. The elective invites young musicians, artists and performers to experiment with new forms of presentation. Special attention is given to the combination of different perspectives, such as analog, digital, visual, sound, verbal, movement, etc.
As a theme for this edition - taking place within the framework of the KNAL! Festival- students are invited to collaborate around the 'Theory of Everything' - or the possibility of being 'nothing'. Exceptionally the final presentations will not happen at STUK, because of renovations, but at BAC ART LAB KU Leuven.
BAC ART LAB PROGRAMME
BAC ART LAB is KU Leuven’s very own house of art and science. At the end of the day, artists and scientists are asking the same big questions. And they want to understand, explain, and even change the world around them. The BANG! Big Bang City Festival is the perfect occasion for presenting an inspiring four-part programme.
During an artist talk, Haseeb Ahmed explains how art and science reinforce and enrich each other.
Students and staff members can apply for studio space in BAC ART LAB so that KU Leuven literally creates space for experimentation. Thuy Lê Thi Thu had the world at her feet, graduating from LUCA School of Arts and is one of our resident artists. Get acquainted with her work during a solo exhibition.
BAC ART LAB is also a lab for new forms of education, where theory and artistic practice go hand in hand. Intermedia students present a short performance. And group exhibition by students from Media & Information Design (MIND) will make your head spin.
