IN SEARCH OF A FUTURE OF PROSPERITY AND FREEDOM

WITHOUT UNDERMINING NATURE AND HUMANITY

How technology are you?

Views of the future are often caught up in a binary narrative: “technology good” or “technology bad”. In the 2017 Boyer Lectures, the anthropologist Genevieve Bell  puts forward a different notion: that technology is what humans are. Does this mean that (bio)technology will result in a new species? Find it more about the impact of new technologies on our daily lives in the third edition of Reason and Engage (Redelijk Eigenzinnig).

Bozar Occupied - 50 Years of Cultural Protest

28 May - 8 June 2018

 

To this day, May 1968 is still regarded as a cultural turning point, a symbol of freedom and revolt against old mores and institutions. Fifty years ago, the Centre for Fine Arts was the hotbed of artistic activism in Brussels. From 28 May until 8 June of that year, artists and students occupied the central hall. Instead of waxing nostalgic about this contestation, BOZAR chooses to take stock of the global resistance movement in the sixties and look ahead. Which forms of cultural protest make a difference today? How can a cultural institution like BOZAR open up even more to the city and civil society? And which role do artists play in this?

BOZAR is handing all power to the imagination this year, with a comprehensive programme of exhibitions, concerts, debates, workshops and planned and unplanned encounters.

“Today we no longer have the right to pretend that we command a unique position from which we can view the truth about the world. We must learn not to judge different areas of knowledge, culture, or art, but to combine them and to establish new ways of coexistence with those who enable us to meet the unique demands of our time.”

Ilya Prigogine & Isabelle Stengers,
Order Out of Chaos: Man’s New Dialogue With Nature, 1984
