2014-2015: CICI - Process management for the creative industries

It becomes clear that innovation often happens outside the lab, and requires more than research & development. With the CICI-funding, the Flemish government wants to stimulate innovation through cross-disciplinarian collaboration, and encourage the creative industries, entrepreneurs and scientists to collaborate. Of the sixteen projects that received funding six indicated Crosstalks as their mentor. During one year, Crosstalks will help them realizing their projects.

Look Who's Crosstalking Now

Biennale Architettura Venezia

Until November 23, 2104


The Venice Biennial of Architecture is always an occasion to reflect on the effects of architectural interventions on the current and future evolution of our society. This edition's curator Rem Koolhaas - with whom Crosstalks collaborated for We can Change The Weather - focused on how nations have dealt with modernity (or not) during the last 100 years, making it the core theme for the pavillions in the main exhibitions of Giardini and Arsenale. Crosstalks was there during the preview days, and our shortlist of the most revealing and inciting presentations was confirmed by the official awards to the Crow’s Eye View: the Korean Peninsula, Monolith Controversies by Chile, Arctic Adaptations: Nunavut at 15 by Canada, and Modernity: promise or menace? by France. A special Crosstalks's mention goes to the exhibitions Monditalia, Potential Monuments of Unrealised Futures by Albania, Places of Memory by Turkey, Tourism Landscapes: Remaking Greece, and A Clockwork Jerusalem by the UK . Not to neglect the offsite exhibitions Art or Sound in the Prada Foundation and The Space That Remains: Yao Jui-Chung’s Ruins Series in the Istituto Santa Maria della Pietà, Castello. Wishing you an inspiring summer!

Summer of Photography


An International Biennial of Photography in Belgium @ BOZAR

Every two years the Centre for Fine Arts (Bozar) organizes the Summer of Photography, an international festival that focuses on photography and related media. Not only does it provide the opportunity to discover modern-day photography, it also looks forward to the future of the image in our culture. The result is a varied program of exhibitions and related events, with talks, a symposium, and a portfolio day. On different locations in Belgium, the Summer of Photography thus creates a lively forum and platform for specialists, amateurs, and anyone with an interest in photography.

On Tuesday June 17, Crosstalks and Bozar organized three debates on the (mis)representation of women in arts and media. The evening debate was attended by two members of a Russian feminist art collective, Natalia Eremenko and Ekaterina Samutsevich.

“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.”
