The festival’s daytime program in 2010 takes the shape, as in 2009, of a thematic laboratory. Visitors and participants alike are invited to explore the diverse issues raised by the OVERLAP theme, at both the practical and theoretical levels. With a mix of lectures, talks, workshops, installations and performances, the interdisciplinary program will transform the .HBC and the temporary exhibition spaces at the SPA into a lively hub of exchange and experiment, concerted contemplation and 'hands-on' learning.
In an academic or scientific context, 'the laboratory' connotes a protected workspace devoted to daring experiments with unforeseeable results as well as to carefully controlled and monitored tests. The perfect metaphor for what's in store at these venues.
Human perception and the strategic interweave of individual senses are the theme of the exhibition Esemplasticism: The Truth is a Compromise, curated by Hicham Khalidi and produced by The Hague-based <TAG>.
