Vrije Universiteit Brussel & KVS
Scientists and artists are the visionaries of society. They stick their necks out. KVS and Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB) organise Mindblowers to lend the stage to their voices and heartbeats.
For the third year in a row, VUB and KVS are kicking off the new season and academic year together. A powerful signal to show that both institutions are serious when it comes to engagement with and for society. Because tomorrow’s society won’t be built from our own little caves of righteousness, but from dialogue and a search for interconnection.
Artists and scientists will be exploring a theme in brief, surprising, urgent and fiery interventions. This year our theme is TIME, a fascinating concept that has been occupying artists and scientists for centuries. How it changes, how everything returns, what time teaches us, and how we can capture it in art or science.
Mindblowers: a meeting between scientists and stagey people. Performances and interventions at the crossroads of art, culture and reflection. An evening sure to culminate in an unforgettable, mind-blowing party.
